I was a little disappointed in this story, because "The Duke and I" and "The Viscount Who Loved Me" are (in my opinion) among the best romance ever written, so I had high expectations for this one. It was OK. As usual in Julia Quinn's books the caracters were sympathetic and the tone humorous, but I found the story a little too ignorant of the social context of that time, even for a romance novel. (Though it wasn't as silly as "Eveything and the Moon" where the heroine goes from respectable vicar's daughter to workingclass seamstress to countess.) I hope the next one, "Romancing Mister Bridgerton" is better. There is an excerpt at Julia Quinn's home page, and it seems promising!
