Not her finest story but still funny.

I love Lynsay Sands and will continue to buy her books. The plot was very thin with the hero being driven by jealousy and the heroine demuring to him and tending injured animals. it would have worked better of there was more for the characters to do, different motivations, more layers to them. That said, it is still Lynsay Sands which means there were a few very funny moments in it. The narration was excellent.

A lovely story

Plenty of humour and a strong heroine. The Duke is grumpy.... but then aren't they all. Excellent narration. This story focuses more on the romance and does neglect a bit the non-romance plot... but the ending is nice.

Another hit

Great to see familiar characters in the universe. Terrific pacing with believable stakes. Good mix of SciFi with politics and alliances.

Realistic with excellent pacing

The author based the book on existing treaties between Canada and the United States. Very plausible scenario with believable characters. It's great to read about a strong heroine in a non-traditional job. Pacing was excellent. Plot was interesting. Can't wait to listen to the next in the series.

interesting characters with separate storylines that are woven in together in the last chapters of the book. Quite a bit of tragedy in this book. Flawed characters who know they can't have it all.... bittersweet. We'll written with an ending that is in keeping with the sweet sorrow of the book.

This book is very sweet. There were a few more opportunities for the h/h to have misunderstood one another that were missed.....but there were elements of humour. The heroine had agency. The ending was okay...... could have wrapped up both villains better. the romantic ending was sweet and well done.

It was a slog

I loved Fiest's books. Loved the Riftwar Saga. I looked forward to listening to this one. I was disappointed with this book. The characters weren't well developed, particularly the women characters who were only there for sex, marriage, and/or other needs of men. I found the pacing to be slow and the main conflict didn't have enough tension to drive the plot forward. There was, in my opinion, a lack of world building. I think he's trying to modernise an old trope and it's not working. A lot of point of view shifts that weren't necessary.... muddling some scenes.
Narrator was excellent.

Information was presented in a clear and logical way. Author drew on scientific journals and field work. I really enjoyed his previous work Fingerprint of the Gods. This book did not disappoint. The last three chapters could have been condensed as he strays away from fact to opinion.

Lynsay Sands took a common trope of twins and women forces to marry and add layers to it. There were several elements of humour. As always the heroine is strong with a strong sense of justice. Hero is traditional in that he is always there to support his heroine. It was a charming read/listen. Heat level isn't as hot at some of her other books..... but it works.

Unique story

It's Lyndsay Sands..... so sweet and funny. Add a unique plot line and you've got a charming read. Some moments you had to suspend character development moments.... but it's worth it.
