fun Georgian romance

In 1761 the three Sullivan siblings (Jasper St. John and his twin brothers Sebastian and Peregrine) learn the conditions of their inheriting from their still living reformed rakish uncle Viscount Bradley. His lawyer Alton explains that they must 'save" and marry a fallen woman in need of salvation before their uncle dies.

The oldest brother Jasper an Earl has no plans to meet the conditions of his uncle's will though he could use the money to pay off the mortgages on the estates he will inherit. However, fate intervenes when he meets Clarissa Astley in a seedier side of town. He assumes her being there unescorted means she is a prostitute; he scoffs at her being an innocent searching for her missing brother Francis abducted by their guardian Uncle Luke while also eluding his nefarious plans for her. He makes her his mistress. However as they fall in love, he knows she was not the hooker he thought she was and marrying her means he failed to meet the intent of the will, but marrying her he will.

The first Blackwater Georgian romance is a fun lustful historical starring two likable lead characters and a strong support cast. Clarissa makes the tale work as she tries to pretend to be what she is not while enlisting the aid of the rake and his two "musketeer" brothers. Fans will enjoy the opening act as the rake needs to wed a hooker, but never expected to be hooked by love.

I just finished it and it's a quick read, but would have liked to see more relationship development between Jasper and Clarissa. It seems they fell in love a bit quick. I also wish there was a bit more follow-through with the ending and I would have liked to find out what happened with the twins, but maybe that comes in the sequel (if JF is planning a sequel)?

    Why Jane why?

    MEH!I've read several Jane Feather books and LOVED them but I feel like she lost some creativity when she wrote this. The plot has been done several times before and character development is mediocre. Certainly is not one of her best.
