    I have to admit that I actually enjoyed this book I ve been reading heavier material lately and really needed a break I wanted something that was fun and easy to read with a minimum of effort In short, I wanted to be mindlessly entertained And, to a degree, I was However, I must admit that I never did figure out who the villain was until it was revealed at the end of the book Truth be told, I am ashamed to admit this As all of my readers know, I happen to enjoy this particular time perio I have to admit that I actually enjoyed this book I ve been reading heavier material lately and really needed a break I wanted something that was fun and easy to read with a minimum of effort In short, I wanted to be mindlessly entertained And, to a degree, I was However, I must admit that I never did figure out who the villain was until it was revealed at the end of the book Truth be told, I am ashamed to admit this As all of my readers know, I happen to enjoy this particular time period for historical romances That being said, I suppose this book had an advantage from the start I would say the author adequately handled the setting, keeping a good part of the societal conventions of the time intact Although there wasn t much development of the setting itself, it didn t detract as one does not pick up a romance expecting a detailed setting Further, it wasn t truly necessary for the purposes of this book The reader can take enough common knowledge and presumption into the reading of this book to easily get past any lack of development of the setting.The plot was actually good I don t recall having come across a plot in which the heroine of the story has to marry in order to continue running the family business Nor do I recall a book, especially a romance, in which I haven t figured out the plot within the first few chapters It was nice to be kept guessing for a change As for the pacing, I can t complain It wasn t too fast, nor did it bog down and bore me I would say it was nicely paced start to finish.I enjoyed the characters as well It was nice to see both of the main characters grow and come to new conclusions about their lives and their thoughts on love and marriage I believe this book is probably a sequel to another book so I won t complain that the two main supporting characters of Robert and Charlotte Gordon weren t developedI am certain that had I read the first book this wouldn t have nagged at me in the least That said, I will say that the villain of the book was a bit clich d But this is romance and one expects a certain amount of clich And since the clich s in the main characters didn t bother me at all in fact I didn t even think of them until I started writing about the clich d villain I will certainly let this clich pass as well.As for the author s actual ability to write decent, well formed and engaging sentences, which all my readers know is a big deal to me, I will say that the author did well I do not like scrawny, half formed paragraphs heavy laden with elementary sentences and vocabulary Thankfully, Ms Elliott committed none of those sins I won t say the writing is scholarly, but at least there are some complex sentences, mid range vocabulary and correct grammar for the most part.All things considered, I would recommend this book to others In fact, I don t think I would relegate this book to a beach read weekend read only category Certainly it is not on par with the classics, but I still enjoyed the book and think others who enjoy romance would enjoy the book as well I will say that I would not recommended this book for younger readers Although the sex is not liberally sprinkled about the book nor is it especially graphic, it is there At my house this would be relegated to the adult only section Of course, it is probably farmild than what most teens see on TV or hear their friends talk about, so it could ultimately be said that perhaps older teen readers could read the book However, with so many other titles out there I would encourage them to read something else

    An impressive writing style for a Mills and Boon novel All over top stuff I hope that my prose will one day be as well crafted as this was.
