Kate has done a wonderful job developing the characters in this book. My favorite is Lucia, though I feel sorry for her most of the time. She has such a heart, but her charges are beyond control. Thank goodness for the humor throughout the book; it takes the edge off the suspense. Edmund is my next character to root for. Though he is quite inventive when it comes to getting out of his obligations, I do not think he deserves his consequences. Overall, I enjoyed the plot and characters and have recommended this book to friends.

I wanted a little more out of this book. It wasn't bad not by a long shot. I wanted more depth and detail I guess. The storyline was very interesting but in a way the story felt rushed because of not having the depth/details. In certain parts the story isn't very believable maybe that is why I'm not liking as much. Anyhow I would like to read the next book in the series.

    Outstanding Read!

    Kate Dolan has every reason to be proud of this book. It is an engrossing read with characters painted with a fine brush. I was unable to put it down for more than a few minutes before having to see what would happen next. While some seem to bemoan the lack of raw sex, I applaud the author for her restraint. I read about 15-20 books a week and this one really held my attention and, obviously, interest. Kudos Kate!

    Darling tale

    Witty conversation that stays true to the time period, if a bit brash! Endearing characters show the reader a new perspective of London's high society in this darling tale where first impressions turn out to be the best intuition on a person's character.
