Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
This intriguing but sadly chauvinistic sequel to Autumn Rain revolves around a young woman and a dastardly plot to secure an heir. Accompanying Alexander I to London in 1814, Count Alexei Volsky and his sister Galena overwhelm the plucky but not particularly attractive Katherine Winstead with their attentions. For this daughter of a gaming baron who took his own life, Volsky's proposal of marriage seems too good to be true, and of course, it is. Pregnant and isolated in the Volsky's Russian estate, Kate discovers the true nature of her role--and of Galena's. For her difficult flight home, Kate turns to her brother's friend, the rake Bellamy, Viscount Townsend, who appeared in Autumn Rain and is now laying low in Russia following another messy affair and having second thoughts about his shallow life. Mills is to be commended for creating a heroine who is truly more character than looks, nor does Mills flinch at including the more quotidian fleshy realities. The real weakness is her portrayal of Russians as sadistic and perverted. The era that gave birth to Pushkin, Gogol and Lermontov deserves a more evenhanded treatment. (Sept.)

Not one to read regency romances this story was beautifully written and kept me enthralled till the very end! I found out this was the sequel to Autumn Rain so I just purchased it wishing I had read it in sequence but because I love how this author writes I simply had to buy it anyway! I also will be buying more of her books in future she is that good!

This book was such a page turner. I was so heartbroken when I read this book and even though I wished my heroine's husband would wake up from his folly it was not to be. I'm so glad she found some sort of happiness, but her husband and his sister, they are wrong... so...so very wrong. Get it, a complete page turner from beginning to end.
