This novel had the ability to just charm the heck out of me while I was reading it! We'll start with our heroine, Nicole. She is beautiful, flirtatious, witty, a bit concerned about how superficial she is... and does not want to end up like her mother, always striving to find a man and love in order to find happines. (Her mother by the way is as annoying as she is hilarious!) Then we have Lucas, he is just plain sexy, intelligent, funny, he has a bit of a "darkeness" to him, but he's more of a charmer and he is totally conflicted in regards to his political aspirations and personal demons.

Together, this couple is just perfect! It's a bumpy road and they do some foolish things, but they simply cannot deny how much they care for each other, not even when they try. I find that in many romance novels the characters don't even seem to like each other and things end up feeling forced. Not in this story. Kasey Michaels is the Queen of banter! While Lucas and Nicole test each others' wit and often end up tongue tied, there are little electric sparks floating around the characters. They freely admit to liking each other and feel that a coupling is inevitable.

I can't praise this novel enough. It has a little of everything you could possibly want. Lucas and Nicole are great friends, great sparring partners, and great lovers!

It is very discouraging to read a novel by a supposed expert in the field of historical romance only to find she has not done even the most basic research into the usage of the courtesy titles she sprinkles among her characters. It is very hard to work up any enthusiasm for a book with such glaring errors. The character of Helen CANNOT be a "Dowager Duchess" because she was never married to a Duke. The fact that her son inherits the title (from his uncle) makes not the slightest difference in how she is addressed. Because her husband was the younger son of a Duke, she is not "Lady Helen" or "Lady Daughtry" either. She would be "Lady Geoffrey Daughtry" or "Lady Geoffrey." There are other mistakes as well. The heroine and her sister are not entitled to style themselves as "Lady" as their father, Geoffrey, was never Duke. Only the daughters of Earls or better are so styled. As with their mother, the brother's title makes no difference.
It might be possible, although difficult, to look past such careless errors if the book itself were very good, but it is not. It is average only, with flat characters and a completely improbable plot that is not helped by the convolutions the author has it take. The book feels as thought it was written in a hurry, carelessly, and without proof-reading or research. The errors in the titles assigned to the characters bears this out.
I sometimes wonder, when I find these types of errors (and this author is by no means the only offender) whether people in the UK ever bother to read historical novels set in England and written by American authors. I hope they don't; it's to embarrassing to think about. On the other hand, maybe they are getting a good laugh out of it. Considering the shameless use these American authors make of a history that is not theirs while not making the effort to at least get the details right, I think the folks across the Atlantic are entitled to be amused at our expense.

This book was not at all captivating and definitely not one bit intriguing. The hero and heroine were completely mismatched. The hero came across as a horn dog, while the heroine came across as ridiculously childish and temperamentally spoiled rotten. At first, the heroine's spunkiness was attractive as she was no ordinary debutante of her time, but as the story progresses, this attribute was extremely annoying. Furthermore, the heroine was too stuck up on herself.

Although the author doesn't mention the ages of her two main characters, we were kept reminded that the heroine was quite young and that the hero was much older. Because the hero totally falls head over heels for our heroine upon meeting her for the first time, and he is so straight up about his feelings with her, we are never allowed to determine whether or not he truly felt any deep feelings for the heroine. He doesn't comment anything other than above is carnal feelings for her and that because of her youth he feels very much alive and daring again. This totally comes across as a hero going through serious mid-life crisis and thus extremely pathetic.

With respect to the plot, well let's just say that there wasn't one. There was never any real sense of danger despite the author's constant reminder of an impending riot to take place and intentionally to be caused by one of the Lords; who is allegedly the villain even though one can conclude that there never really is an actual villain since the hero's father died of unusual circumstances that require further investigating.

Finally, the supporting characters were flat; and let's not mention the heroine's mother. This mother came out lower than flat and mere inches away from a common two-bit whore and totally un-nurturing.

In conclusion, this read does not provide any action, suspense, excitement or a realistic love story and match between two intellectual people of their social standing. Hopefully, the heroine's sister will have a better story than this one.
