About the Author

Not to spoil anything, per se, but the crux of this plot is the circumstances of a soldier returning from war in India and the sociopolitical problems that assault him in the upper circles of British society. There are also several heady doses of delicious passion. But moreover, the mix of the two was so well balanced that I craved both equally. That is to say, the plot never felt too distracting from the romance, and the romance never felt obligatory (like, "oh yeah, this is a romance novel, so we should probably have some romance or sex here, but it doesn't really fit in the plot so let's just put it... ummm, Here!") In other words, this book does a very excellent job of providing a look poignant social issues, combined with a witty and sensual romance. A perfect win, if you ask me.

I really enjoyed the hero and heroine but something bothered me about halfway through the book ¿ it felt a little like déjà vu. Then I realized, this was a very similar plot to Enoch¿s England¿s Perfect Hero. A tortured hero who is the only survivor of a massacre; he has just come back from war and his supportive family is trying to help him heal; a heroine who is the belle of the ball; heroine is encouraged towards a proper suitor but likes the hero; hero¿s military feats are questioned by authority and he potentially faces charges; heroine has to determine whether to stand with hero against society. Now I did like A Lady¿s Guide better and there were some differences (here the hero has physical as well as mental wounds). A few issues with the book about the number of secondary characters (we don¿t need to set up the whole series here) and a forced ¿incident¿ at the end to create some conflict between h/h. But I loved the hero and thought his struggles were portrayed well. The chemistry between the hero and heroine and how they dealt with their growing attraction was really well written. Overall a great book.

Although this a very fast paced intriguing romance. There are several underlying values and ethical issues that also make a very thoughtful story,

Loved Tolly and Theresa! I liked their relationship because they pretty much remained faithful to each other from the beginning and were honest about their feelings until the very end no matter the circumstances. Refrshing!

Cheeky, likeable heroine, however, if you don't like your hero damaged and tormented this book may not be for you.

This book sounded familiar, but I purchased and read it anyway. As soon as the hero was referred to as Tolly, I pulled my other Suzanne Enochs of the shelf to see where I had heard that before, and came upon "England's Greatest Hero." Of course, the Tolly in that book was the horse, but the story is pretty much the same - prim lady falls for broken hero to society's chagrin and her own inner turmoil (although the Tolly in "Lady's Guide" is significantly broken in body and in spirit, and Bit from "England's Perfect" is less broken in body). Someone attempts to discredit the horrific things the hero went through, and it's up to the family to band together in support. "Lady's Guide" was just ok, and I liked it better the first time I read it when it was "England's Perfect Hero."

This is my second Suzanne Enoch novel and I am hooked. Love her character development and the rich images she paints for her readers. Themes and plot are refreshing. I absolutely loved this. G. A-M
