Synopsis from Goodreads:
The main characters in this novel were quite unique. I don’t think I’ve ever seen quite this approach in a historical romance. I loved getting to know them so well. Their histories added to who they are today, even if it wasn’t always in a positive manner. They were a joy to get to know.
I definitely had some issues with the uncles. They were developed as a single entity, with few of them having any bearing outside of this. For a while there it was really starting to feel like the entire premise of the story had changed to ‘we were wrong, we actually started the whole thing, but we don’t care, we’re still getting our way even though it’s none of our business.’ Needless to say, they got on my nerves (and those of most of the characters) throughout the novel. Fortunately the rest of the cast & the original (and at times quite comical) storyline outshone this.
As a whole, the various elements of this story combined into an enjoyable reading experience for me. It wasn’t my favourite of Lindsey’s novels, but it was still a good read.
