This is the 2nd book by author S.E. that I have read in the past year. I also read ¿London¿s Perfect Scoundrel¿ (pretty good). My next book, ¿Sin & Sensibility¿ was enjoyable as well. While I agree with many other reviewers this book was not deep, complicated or earth shattering to read¿it was still charming and enjoyable in all it¿s simple ways. The main characters, Eleanor and Valentine each had their plus and minus points. Eleanor was kind, open minded, adventurous and attractive. On the other hand¿she was also a bit sheltered, spoiled with money and attention and didn¿t seem to have made up her mind who she was and what she wanted in life. Valentine in turn was handsome, worldly, charming, naughty and bold. On the other hand¿he was also a bit coarse, self-fish, good for little besides playing and sexing it up and was in the middle of his life with little direction as to who he was and what he wanted in life. Both Eleanor and Valentine were simply going through the motions of life until they finally ¿saw¿ each other for who they really were as people. In that spark of real interest and attraction, they slowly began to change each other into better people and in turn, themselves. They complimented one another well and that allowed their good points to shine and their drawbacks to be minimized. Eleanors wish to become a woman of the world and full of spirit via ¿adventures¿ was a good idea but, a bit weak in this book. I¿ve seen other writers put their heroines on journeys of adventure and discovery that were much more interesting and believable than this. So¿nice idea, just dull development. The intimacy scenes between Eleanor and Valentine were fine. I didn¿t find anything in their coming together that put fireworks in the sky or bedroom. Their attraction and appeal to one another was real enough, I just wished for more ¿sizzle¿ between the two. All the brothers Griffin (Sebastian, Charlemagne (Shay) and Zachary) were interesting. They were highly protective of their sister and it showed. It was nice to see siblings caring about one another and they were certainly a loud, boisterous and interesting group of guys. As many other readers noted, perhaps we will see their stories in the future. Even though I nit picked on a few things that weren¿t great in this book, I would still recommend this author for casual regency romance reading. She has a light but, historical touch and her books always please. Characters, plots and story lines are appealing for the general reader. I gave 3 ½ stars not quite 4 or 5 but, still good. Do enjoy!
