This is a wonderful romantic novel with compelling characters. I particularly like Elizabeth, who is feisty enough to go after what she wants without being out of character for a young woman of the era.The author makes it easy to get lost in the narrative and creates a story world that is very realistic. It is easy to imagine the houses, gardens, and estates that set the backdrop for the couples. If you enjoy a Regency-style romance, you will enjoy this book.
DelightfulI truly enjoyed reading this book. Emma Lane tells a delightful tale that had me curled up relaxing. The villain was somewhat of an interesting character in himself. Roderick and Elisabeth's tale did leave me anxious to read more. I am looking forward to more books about this family, if there is more to be written. I will say, Emma Lane has made me a fan. I chose this rating because, it simply felt delightful to read a well written clean story. I would recommend this book to friends and family without reserve.
