protective towards her yet no wimp himself but a very dominant alpha male is full of understanding particularly for that period One almost wishes to meet this hot Victorian Lord Tho this is the third book in the series despite this being, my first book by the author it can be read as a standalone and was a smooth read There were hints of sensuality Lord Ravens certainly had very erotic ides towards his intended but nothing explicit as this would have been inappropriate for the period until after marriage.This novel brought home to me the constraints on the freedom of women of that period
