    Still mixed feelings about this. 3 stars was generous. I enjoyed it as a fluff read, but parts of it are still bothering me and holding me back from feeling a solid 3 or 4. Too many repetitive plot scenes and a lack of clear build up of feelings for the hero. Instant love doesn’t work well for me

    I absolutely loved this book. I only discovered Marina Oliver's books this summer, but I'm going to look out for more of hers! The writing is clear and concise, the characters skillfully drawn, and the story well-paced. This does have a rather "old-fashioned" feel, in that the tension between the characters is emotional, rather than sexual, but I didn't feel that detracted from my enjoyment at all.

    I actually found this book quite alarming. The heroine is threatened with sexual assault several times and abducted twice. The heroine also repeatedly tells others that she is being forced into an unwanted marriage without anyone who is supposed to care about taking her seriously. The Hero does save her several times but his behavior towards her is problematic as well. I don't think the author intended this book to be so dark.

    Description wise it was great authentic regency romance! Still not up to par to Austen or Heyer's enthralling romantic story lines that captures one's attention from the start! Did finish, but only to finish more enjoyment to be done & be able to start a new book of the fabulous regency era that I love!!!!

    I did not like this book at all. The heroine was an immature, self-centred little chit and the hero was a mansplaining pompous ass. Neither character displayed enough loveable traits for me to want them to fall in love. What little attraction they have is based purely on chemical lust. I doubt they will realise their HEA.
