    Not typical romance fare

    I really enjoyed this, because while it had some of the usual romance cliches: boy meets girl, girl and boy hate each other on sight but interact out of mutual benefit.; boy and girl fall reluctantly in love. I have read many stories like this...it is used again and again because when done right...it always works. It works well here. We not only get a romance, but a mystety and old fashion detective story all in one....and all fully intertwined. Without the seconadry story there would be no romance, and the romance adds to the secondary story. It all worked well.

    more from this reviewer

    The events and the major characters are not what they appear to be in this lively novel.

    Phillippa Benning is young, beautiful, wealthy and widowed. On the surface, she dominates the discriminating elite of the ton with her unerring taste and strong personality. In lighter, even comical, moments, Phillippa is also juggling a deep flirtation with divinely handsome Philip Broughton, vying with Lady Jane Cummings for his proposal of marriage. But Phillippa is also smart as a whip with an acute visual memory; she's curious, discerning - and perhaps even kind!
    When Phillippa overhears a conversation between Marcus Worth and someone high in the government - she's hidden in a sarcophagus - about suspected war criminals, she's hooked! On the surface Marcus is clearly "low ton": a third son, too tall, disheveled and plainly dressed, yet Phillippa believes him to be the infamous war hero Blue Raven and knows that if she reveals his identity at her annual Benning Ball it will be the coup of the season.
    Marcus is ridiculed and unsupported by his superiors in the war office for his suspicions about a French plot, so it's inevitable that he relies on Phillippa and her social pull to gain access to ton parties where he's certain that his arch French enemy, Laurent, will do mischief. (Marcus' reclusive brother Byrne Worth, the real Raven, doesn't believe him either. Byrne has been in the country recovering slowly physically from the last wound he received from Laurent and from an addiction to laudanum. He's also a psychological mess from all their war doings). Marcus and Phillippa meet secretly to plan, etc., and somehow their hands find themselves seeking each other's, and more than once he or she saves the day. Marcus' hunch and Phillippa's adroitness in increasingly tense situations lead to clues to the enemy and his supporters, and to a potentially fatal kidnapping. In the end much more is revealed than the Blue Raven's identity: love, friendship, and loyalty.

    I Also Recommend:

    "Engaging and sweet. Not to be missed!"

    Great story and even greater characterization. Definitely love Marcus Worth, even from the start. And as the story progressed, I find myself liking Philippa more and more, for her courage, her sense of adventure and for her innate desire to do what's right, at any cost to herself and her pride. Of course, concern for Marcus Worth has a big influence in her decisions. Another thing I must applaud the author for is the believability of Philippa's character. She remains true to herself, even until the end. Essentially, she is still the same Philippa Benning, still aspires to continue to hold the title of Society's darling, but she has been tempered by love. I like that she didn't become a completely different person when touched by love as had happened in some books.
