    Didn't feel the love

    The characters and premise is good, could have used some more build up of them together. Felt like there were pieces missing. Just starting to get to know each other and then theyre making love in the carriage after he embarrasses her. Was she even a virgin? No talk of her being suspicious of his disguise. And her transformation was pretty quick-a new dress, pull out a few hairpins and voila-she's now a beauty. Quick ending-they were married and she was pregnant, and she had set up another chapter of the Halcyon Society. I give up on SSloane.

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book




    Review: The Saint Who Stole My Heart is book 4 in Stefanie Sloane’s Regency Rogues series. I was a bit hesitant to pick this up since I prefer to read a series in order and I have not read the first 3 books. No worries though. This book does very well as a standalone.




    The main character Dash is an interesting gentleman. Even though he has a face and body that would make a woman swoon, he portrays himself as simple-minded and deliberately masks his supreme intelligence as part of his efforts to safe guard his secret of being a Young Corinthian spy. Elena on the other hand makes no secret of her intelligence and shows insecurity with not recognizing that she is in fact beautiful on both the inside and outside.




    While I enjoyed getting to know both Dash and Elena, the romance portion of the story was very slow with most of their courtship apparently conducted “behind the scenes”. In fact, the entire book in general moved a bit on the slow side. I found myself easily distracted and had a hard time staying focused. Some of the scenes seemed to start and stop abruptly and immediately shifted focus to something or someone else which resulted in a lot of backtracking to reorient myself. For example, it is late at night and Elena cannot sleep so she goes wandering and ends up in the gallery where she stumbles onto Dash. Among other things, they are discussing why she cannot sleep and then the story immediately cuts to Elena, Dash and Lady Mowbray at the breakfast table.




    Overall, the plot and characters held a lot of great promise, but with the abrupt scene changes and feeling like some of the scenes were lacking key information, it was just too much work to stay focused and involved.
