The Good: This book abides by all rules of Regency. You will learn about the complexities of the era and then some. It is truly remarkable how well Ella Quinn weaves the strict social conventions of the Regency era into an intriguing love story.
I loved the strength of Lady Phoebe. She knows her mind and is unafraid of expressing herself and exerting her will.
And, can Lord Marcus Finley be anymore romantic? Who wouldn’t want to be the object of his affection? His determination to win Phoebe’s heart was positively simmering.
This novel is sexy, sexy, sexy! Ella Quinn does not hold back as Marcus seduces Phoebe and it so much fun to read.
The Meh: Her angst about falling for him was a little, tiny bit over the top. I believed it at the beginning. But, for me, it lasted a little longer than necessary.
Overall: awesome, super fun read. Hot, sexy and oh so romantic. At times, a bit too many exacting details about the era – but at the same time I see this as a positive because it really stays true to Regency.
Would love to hear from others who have read this one!
