    Grace and Gideon's love story is wonderful and a must read! 500+pages, no grammatical errors, and well edited. I will definitely read more from this author.

    Great book. Would've given this book 5 stars, but I felt some long detailed scenes were unnecessary. Other than that I think the plot was great, book was not cheesy, and well developed characters. Loved the book.

    Can't believe this was free!!

    As a lover of regency and historical romances, I loved this story! It was very complete with the characters past stories included and a great epilogue at the end. I read it in one day and had a hard time putting it down. It had everything that I love in a good romance and yet was not at all your typical romance. It was very original. I will be looking for more romances from this author. It wasn't overly detailed on the sexual scenes but just right which I appreciated.

    Rather than weaving a story which draws the reader in, this author seems to be reciting events. Everything is presented in a simplistic manner that fails to engage. Ok for a quick, free read, but glad I did not pay for it.

    Different but enjoyable!

    I agree with previous posts about long, descriptive chapters. Unlike most novels of this genre, there was no 'bodice ripping' hero. Yes, the relationship between the principals was unorthodox, but the story was satisfying.

    It was refreshing to read a piece of work that had no evil protagonist or dire circumstances. This would be an appropriate story for a young person who likes period drama. The love scenes were intense without being graphic or obscene.

    I'll be looking for more from this author!

    i really loved this book. i lliked the flow of the book the discriptions of every thing the feel of the characters and their love. this was one of the best romance novels i've read in a long time. the only thing that could have made it better was to add a little paranormal and i would have been in reading heaven. will read more of this author.

    Tedious

    This could have been a good story, but this author went on and on about the smallest of details. At least 40% of this book contained unnecessary descriptive details. Very boring!

    I had a very hard time getting into this book. I merely read to the end to see what happened and who actually ended up together. I didn't necessarily feel the love between Gideon and Grace. I also didn't like the fact that he was basically with two women at once. I think he should have just dealt with it and divorced the first. OH well. Definitely not my favorite and I'm glad I didn't have to pay for it.

    I liked the story line. Unfortunately, the flow and characters seem to lack any energy to keep me interested.

    Not the usual Regency romance. Well written with descriptions that I appreciated, although I suppose there are readers who prefer mostly dialogue. Will look for others by this author.

    Found myself taken up by the story. For all that it took places in the first part of the 19th century, Gideon and Grace are faced with problems that we find today. Enjoyed the story to the end.

    Ho hum

    Lots of details (names, places, minor events) that were unnecessary. I liked the basic premise of a "spinster" deciding to become a kept woman, but couldn't become emotionally invested in these characters because of all the minutiae.

    The footnotes were also pretty distracting...and in several cases, innaccurate! Most who read this genre don't need (or appreciate) the "educational" spoon-feeding.

    Great Read! Wonderful story of lost love and found again, beautifully written. Some parts alittle long in telling, but otherwise, I really enjoyed it. The love scenes were overly described, just written so you knew the love between them.
