4.0 out of 5 starsVery entertaining
Reviewed in Canada on May 12, 2021
I enjoyed this book. The characters were well defined and likeable. There was a lot of action and intrigue but without any heart-wrenching sadness and sorrow. I enjoyed the suspense and intrigue, and especially the humour. The dialogue was delightful and action was fast-paced. No time to get bored! A wonderful read.
My first read by this author - but definitely not my last! I loved Bram and Sophie and all his endeavors to win her back. The plans his friends cooked up to help him were hilarious - especially as they always went awry. Although, it almost went on a tad too long before he was allowed to tell her the truth. But thankfully, he did get to tell her and her acceptance was not immediate, but a gradual understanding as one would expect in real life. I liked the beginnings of the story between her cousin and the Duke . . so I can't wait to read that one. I do agree with another reviewer that I think I would have like an epilogue . . but maybe Bram and Sophie will show up in other books in the series. This book will be a definite reread for me in about a years time . . . so 5 stars for sure!
Loved the strong female lead...didn’t ignore issues or beat around the bush. Loved the male lead, he actually loved the lead female and stayed loyal to her during their separation. Loved that he wasn’t a womanizer or man whore like so many other so called hero’s in romance novels. Not interested in the Winterbourne’s story...he is a man whore, who is likely to share his STI with his unlucky lady.
I enjoyed my first foray into one of this authors novels. I liked and enjoyed all the characters. Both the males and females were strong willed but likeable. The story moved along at a perfect pace and the book contained the right amount of drama, comedy and steam.
Very enjoyable read. Miss Sophie Beckford was about to be betrothed, until her love betrayed her. Abraham Walcott, Earl of Kelmarsh regrets what has happened between him and Sophie, and is doing everything he can think of to make amends. This story is well done, the characters complete and often had me chuckling. This was a first read of this author, but won't be the last - on to the rest of the series.
4.0 out of 5 starsAnother Portion of Espionage Light
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 30, 2018
This another entertaining book in the series. I just have one minor quibble. I thought that the object of espionage was to obtain information about the enemy whilst obfuscating your own intentions. In these books the main intention seems to be to destroy the opposition, but it would be more efficient to deceive them and feed them false information. There are the usual tensions between the hero and heroine and a lot of vey spurious swearing during the frequent bouts of fighting between the spies and the "Frenchies". The most intriguing and original thing in the book is the magnificent silver swan automaton, which really exists in the Bowes Museum. I think you get a much better understanding of the deceits, heartbreak and disguises in spying from reading Joanne Bourne or Baroness Orczy.

This is a wonderfully written start to what promises to be a great series. The plot is full of emotional twists and turns, as well as a bit of suspense. The characters are portrayed with a strength to be envied. This is a great book for anybody who loves steamy historical romances, that have plenty of suspense.
5.0 out of 5 starsA witty and charming Regency romance
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on July 11, 2021
Although this is a lighthearted book, there are moments of tension and excitement. Emily Windsor researches her books well and the places, people and language are realistic and credible. The story is intriguing and absorbing. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Another brilliant book by this author. I loved the the way the story holds you so that you cannot stop reading. Always one more page bit then it's the next and the next, until lo and behold you finished the book. Magic!!!
