    Read Diane Gaston!

    Rose is a songbird. As she sings in Vauxhall Gardens, a lord is intrigued by her. He wants her to be his mistress, but in his usual manner, he instructs his man Flynn to negotiate with her. However, the lord has rivals for her favors, and the competition is heavy. Rose's father is willing to sell her to the highest bidder, and Rose believes it is her duty to accept his choice. But as the negotiations drag on, she finds that she would rather spend her time with Flynn . . .

    Rose's Story!

    I love how Diane takes secondary characters from her other books and gives them tales of their own. This one offered a whole different perspective as it isn't the usual upper crust romance, but a romance between members of the working class. Rose and Flynn are both such likeable characters. I couldn't help but hope for the best from the very beginning. And I even found myself falling for Tanner! Diane's characters are believable and lovable (except for the villians!). I appreciate how Diane is not afraid to reveal how difficult and unpleasant life could be for those without money or power. Her villian is truly a nasty character, who made my skin crawl, more because people like that exist, and prey on the nameless faces of the poor. This story had me reading into the wee hours of the morning because I had to know everything turned out all right. It's a delight to see 'old friends' from previous stories. I'm so looking forward to her next book, even if it isn't coming out until 2008!

    I will be reading everything she writes--another keeper!!

    'Innocence and Impropriety' is another beautiful romance from Diane Gaston. I have read enough of her books (also those penned as Diane Perkins) to trust that she will deliver a heady, exciting, *loving* romance novel every time. Sure enough, she has given us yet another lovely story. (This is not to infer that she follows a formula -- she does not.) I loved the story -- so original, with a fine hero and heroine, as well as wonderful secondary characters. Her prose is lovely. It reads and feels more like some of the great originators of the romance genre-- Bronte, Eyre, et al. What I love most about Diane Gaston's books is the 'verismo', down-to-earth *realism* they impart. It makes her stories stand out. She is like no one else I've read --she truly has her own voice. I recommend this book to all those romance readers who love to think as well as feel when they are reading. Enjoy!
