As someone who somehow missed the rest of the books in this series, (shame on me I know!) I admit to having a bit of an issue at first picking it up. Its like trying to read the Harry Potter series out of order, all the characters know each other and are familiar and you’re the outsider who stumbled in asking around because you have no clue what a muggle is.
However let this not dissuade you first timers from reading this series out of order. All in all I found the book a wonderful display of regency era romance. And the author somehow being psychic and knowing that sometimes a reader just can’t get to all the good books fast enough, gives you a wonderful taste of each of the previous characters as well as future characters.
On the character themselves, I was utterly charmed. This was a book (and I’m assuming the series to) where a lot of thought went into who the characters were. Nicholas (our bad boy ;) ) is not the typical handsome regency hero who does right all his life. In fact he is someone we can relate to in modern days (for those 5 guys who read regency romances..ok 6 ). And Sophia is a character who reminds you of the little sister you shake your head at for not realizing that the boy she’s been friends with forever is …[Spoiler alert] actually the love of her life.
Two thumbs up to Stephanie and I’ve already added this series to the rest of my twenty billion must reads!
