About the Author

Bliss Bennet writes smart, edgy novels for readers who love history as much as they love romance. Her Regency-set historical romance series, The Penningtons, has been praised by the Historical Novel Society’s Indie Reviews as “a series well worth following”; her books have been described by USA Today as “savvy, sensual, and engrossing,” by Heroes and Heartbreakers as “captivating,” and by The Reading Wench as having “everything you want in a great historical romance.” Her latest book is A Sinner without a Saint.

Despite being born and bred in New England, Bliss finds herself fascinated by the history of that country across the pond, particularly the politically-volatile period known as the English Regency. Though she’s visited Britain several times, Bliss continues to make her home in New England, along with her husband, daughter, and two monstrously fluffy black cats.

Bliss’s mild-mannered alter ego, Jackie Horne, writes about the intersection of gender and genre at the Romance Novels for Feminists blog.

For me, this was a 3.5-star read which I marked up to a 4. I have not read the previous stories in this series but I don't feel that it lessened my enjoyment of this book in any way. Dolcie and Benedict were intriguing, well fleshed out characters. They behaved true to their nature if not totally true to the demands of the era. I particularly liked Dolcie's wit and quick come-backs. The secondary characters were well written as well and added to the story. I enjoyed the dialogue particularly the verbal sparring between Dulcie and Leverett, again though I felt that some of the wordage wasn't always true to the era. The story itself tended to be wordy which kept dragging down the pace and frequent misuse and misplacement of words ruined the flow. I liked the story and would recommend it to those who enjoy Historical Romance.

This is the first book I have read by this author and I had not read the other books in the series. Benedict Pennington abandoned everything to pursue his dream and had become a renowned painter. As he finally returns home, he has high ambitions to open the first National Museum. I found this so interesting because it entails so much history and information about art that I did not know. Benedict finds a patron who might donate some old masterpieces and gets caught in being pushed to woo the gentleman's granddaughter! He runs into old schoolmate Viscount Dulcie who also wants the paintings, and the two end up in a competition to marry the wealthy granddaughter to obtain the art! But as the two are thrown together, who will come out the victor? Will they win each other? The author brought the art world alive and the two characters were very distinctive in their different personalities. An enjoyable read and can be read as a standalone. I read through NetGallery.
