About the Author
When she retired after too many years in journalism, Lillian Marek felt a longing for happy endings and stories where the good guys win and the bad guys get their just deserts. Having exhausted her library’s supply of non-gory mystery stories, she started reading romance novels, especially his- torical romance. This was so much fun that she thought she’d like to try her hand at writing one. So at the age of 70 she took her computer keyboard in hand, slipped back into the 19th century, and began. She was right—writing romance novels is as much fun as reading them.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I didn't like this story as much as the other 3 books in the series. The hero, Edward, is first attracted to Delphine but then started to sense that something was not quite right with her (that is putting it mildly). I just didn't like this character. Yes, she added conflict to the story, but I was over her pretty quickly into the story. I did like Marguerite but I didn't think she was a very strong heroine. While I didn't enjoy this story as much as the others in the series, I'm still excited to see what Marek has in store for us next!
