    An excellent read; Jo Goodman has done it again.

    The characters are well drawn, the plot intriguing, and the description of the time period authentic. Highly recommend.

    I hesitated between 4 and 5 stars, so for wishy-washy people, I really think they should allow half stars ;)

    This is an excellent book.

    The hero and heroine are both so complete and well-rounded as characters that I felt a bit sad that the book was over because I really liked them. My only quibbles with them were that the hero was a bit too complete. There wasn't much character arc for him because he was so private about not getting attached that even the reader never really saw that side of himself. The heroine had that huge, gaping hole in her life caused by the loss of everyone and having constantly to see the people she blamed for the worst of her losses. I could have used more distrust between the hero and heroine - and more opening up, especially by the hero, who was hiding way too much. The secondary characters were excellent, both good and bad ones.

    The plot was well done, definitely. We know who the big bad is from the start, but there's no way to prove it and no court willing to try it. And we don't know who's working for the big bad and who's on the side of justice. Sometimes, Goodman's books drag as she sets up the bits and pieces of her plot here and there, but I didn't get that feeling from this one. There were moments when I felt like nothing was happening, but it was quickly revealed that things were happening behind the scenes or someone would be killed.

    The sex was hot, so people who get shy about that sort of thing will have to skip several pages at a time. I liked it because I'm a naughty wench or whatever. It also was handled as definitely part of the growing relationship, not sex for sex's sake. It didn't jar me. Well, maybe the first scene because... of reasons I can't go into without giving away an important plot point.

    When did she start writing for Berkley? It threw me when I opened up the book on my nook and there was only one book listed on her back list. And does anyone know if she's going to write more regency-era historicals, too, instead of only 1880's westerns? Because If His Kiss is Wicked (awful title) is my favorite book by her.
