 And being outwitted by fate will not deter her!

But even she has to admit that waking up in the bed of a stranger with no memory might be a tiny wrinkle in her otherwise grand plan. Was he a peasant? A gunman? Perhaps a duke? Or was he just a figment of her imagination? Evelyn wasn't about to lurk around and find out. But she will soon learn the mysterious stranger was a force much larger than fate to be reckoned with, and he has set his sight firmly on her.


And they all include reckless, unpredictable, and completely dangerous to his hardened heart, Evelyn Tremaine.

While he might have decided long ago never to get caught up with any woman ever again, he is enchanted by this remarkable lady and her fiery imagination. The only thing is she is mad as a March hare. Winning the exquisite lady's love will be a trial, but Matthew has a will of iron, and he would stop at nothing, fair means or foul until he has her complete surrender.

While the story is intriguing, it has places where it is confusing. There are either typos or bad sentence structure. There are also places where the story does not flow. Finding a good editor might fix the problem.

This book just wasn't for me. I had a hard time finishing and I was ready to quit halfway through; based on the leading male character and his abusive behavior toward the heroine. I wasn't able to fall in love with any of the characters. The heroine was flaky, claiming to be independent, while foolishly falling for a man who had domestic abuse written all over him. I really tried to like this book...

Yes , that IS the word this author used to describe the lead male character. He's overbearing, overtly jealous and opinionated. The female lead is supposed to be strong but is wishy washy. It's this kind of male behavior that was flattering to most women in the not so distant past and still happens today. It is not until one get slapped around that one realizes what an abusive control freak is. It's this kind of material that was fead to women of a different generation underthe guise of romance. If ones target market is young; I think it would wise to refrain from having a stalker as the lead.

While I found the general story line to be intriguing, by the time I got into the middle of the book, I was frustrated by Evelyn and her "determination". It began to feel as if the author wasn't sure how to get to the climax and tie up the ending. The beginning got me hooked, toward the end the inside 'plot' was revealed and the ending was satisfying. I really think this story would be stronger with a more trimmed up middle.

While the idea is good the execution needs a major rewrite. I think the author meant this to be funny and at times I can see it, but there are so many things wrong here. Evelyn is a particularly inept and hopeless heroine. Evelyn desires to travel the world yet by her own admission she's unprepared to take care of herself. When her maid becomes ill as Evelyn's running away Evelyn goes on without her, having only a footman. Who's driving the coach? Footmen aren't trained to. She drinks two bottles of wine and goes to the wrong room where she manages to undress without her maid. Waking the next morning in a man's room "Her eyes took in every small detail." Yet moments later "she spotted no sign of het dress" (though she gets her slippers) instead taking the man's shirt. Now though she has her own room she sneaks out of the inn and paces outside the stables. It's dawn, but none of the grooms or stablehands are about. Very unlikely. "She could not fathom that her inebriated state would have afforded such a lapse in judgment on her part." She was blind drunk, any common sense she may have had was gone after two bottles of wine. It's amazing she wasn't passed out. Although she cannot ride she manages to mount astride a "demon monster" horse, which only two people can manage, which is inexplicably saddled. Her hope is to get to Bath unrecognized - while almost naked, astride upon a huge black horse. When the horse rears the first time she hangs on despite knowing nothing about horses or riding. The second time she falls so she can be rescued by the hero. Finally, we know why she's running from London. She overheard Lord Spencer bet that he "is going to wed her and bed her". The author says that Evelyn thinks Lord S is going to "compromise" her despite what she heard to the contrary. Later in speaking to her brother Evelyn asks him ", What's got your briefs in a twist?" A clothing error as men wore smalls, not briefs. Two of Evelyn's friends divulge their secrets. One is a designer of scandalous gowns, the other privately runs a charity to help abused women and children escape. Part of the book deals with the charity. The book seems schizophrenic trying to be funny then serious. Not terrible, but not well thought out. There are also places where the wrong word is obvious. Once it was exotic rather than erotic; another excepted rather, than expected. Add in misspellings and it's proof that there should have been a better editor.

This is a fantastic and witty read. Humorous from the first page to the very last. Tanya is a very talented writer, she spins charm and adventure throughout the pages even with some surprising scenes. Well done Tanya.
