Read this ages ago, but yeahit made an impression on me, in a not so favorable way.I don t particularly like the evil relatives conspiring to end the match trope, so I didn t particularly like this story Call me completely superficial, but the cover heroine s pale, wan looks also are a major turn off for me Objectively, her character was pleasingly practical and refreshing, but those awful relatives and mocking ton members just made this book unenjoyable in the end.I rehashed the below in Read this ages ago, but yeahit made an impression on me, in a not so favorable way.I don t particularly like the evil relatives conspiring to end the match trope, so I didn t particularly like this story Call me completely superficial, but the cover heroine s pale, wan looks also are a major turn off for me Objectively, her character was pleasingly practical and refreshing, but those awful relatives and mocking ton members just made this book unenjoyable in the end.I rehashed the below in a discussion thread recently Hopefully it ll help people who are considering this book.This is a traditional Regency Hero is a war vet earl who has been searching for years for the angel who had tended him on the battlefield He finds her He compromises her deliberately He wants to marry her She s the daughter of a country doctor, and she s not anywhere near his stratospheric social tier His mother her future mother in law is a vile, vicious woman view spoiler At the end, his mother burns down their mansion in a vindictive rage because she thinks that aligning the family with the heroine would be a travesty to the family name, etc and she would rather destroy their ancestral home than have the heroine live in it hide spoiler Traditional Regency means NO sex scenes The romance and the two lovers are charming and entertaining If only the author hadn t felt the need to bulk the story out with wicked plots and aged madwomen, and surround the poor heroine with over the top enemies The obstacles to the romance were poorly motivated and not believable for the time What possible opposition could there be to the titled hero marrying the daughter of a baronet Why would the ton of London let s not forget that they weren t just the jet set equivalent, they were The romance and the two lovers are charming and entertaining If only the author hadn t felt the need to bulk the story out with wicked plots and aged madwomen, and surround the poor heroine with over the top enemies The obstacles to the romance were poorly motivated and not believable for the time What possible opposition could there be to the titled hero marrying the daughter of a baronet Why would the ton of London let s not forget that they weren t just the jet set equivalent, they were the rulers and government and opinion makers tremble before the dictates of a reclusive old woman, who wasn t a patroness of Almack s or a brilliant hostess or even particularly sane Ellis writes well and engagingly Her characters are lively She s even apparently done research But her invented Regency London is closer to the Castle of Otranto or Anne Radcliffe s Italy than anything Jane Austen would have recognised as England Elizabeth is such a country bumpkin, contrasted with her horrid cousin Sybilla I liked the idea of Elizabeth, but sometimes her lines were just too dull Cute story overall I wonder if Monique Ellis has written a story about Giles Fortescue Elizabeth is such a country bumpkin, contrasted with her horrid cousin Sybilla I liked the idea of Elizabeth, but sometimes her lines were just too dull Cute story overall I wonder if Monique Ellis has written a story about Giles Fortescue Enjoyed this book very much reminds me of Judith Lansdowne books.
