This Victorian era novel contains much more than the usual romance where the hero and heroine fall into instantly in love and after a few obvious misunderstandings live happily ever after.

Gawain Redcake is a pragmatic wealthy man who has decided to boost his social position by marrying a bride from a titled family.  Ann Mai Haldene is half Indian and is a skilled cook and healer using her mother's Indian ingredients and techniques. A young widow, Ann runs an inn with her brother-in-law.  Gawain stops at the inn and ends up spending a passionate night with Ann before going on his way the next day.  They only to come together months later. However, they stay in each other's thoughts, especially for Ann who discovers she is pregnant. Ultimately, they each go looking for the other, managing to miss each other before finally meeting in London. 

There is a strong attraction and bond between the two but the story also opens up to give the supporting characters a larger impact on the story. Some characters are not as they first seem and develop more as the story goes on. Along with the romance there is the unsolved murder of Ann's first husband running through the story which Gawain becomes more and more caught up in solving. 

The book takes more than a perfunctory look at the racial issues Ann faces around her as she travels to London.  Ann also deals with Gawain's social snobbery as he tries to limit her use of her healing skills to those he considers socially inferior.

I liked the passion between Gawain and Ann and especially the fact they acted like grown ups - albeit not always sensible grown ups but the difficulties they faced were more than the usual superficial misunderstandings in romance novels.

I had a good time reading the first book in the Redcakes series so when I had the opportunity to read this one I was glad to do so. This is Gawain's story and I was more than curious to get it. He was so ambitious and felt that he had something to prove plus he had such decided opinions about marriage that I just couldn't wait to meet the woman to challenge him into ditching his plans for love.

The story opens when Gawain Redcake attends the nuptials of his friend Lord Judah Shield. Gawain has decided that he wants to marry into the Shield family for the purpose of advancement in Society by having a noble wife. He has money and some connection through his sister marrying Judah's older brother, a Marquis, but he doesn't want to depend on them. Unfortunately, the Marquis turns him down and the lady in question elopes.

Gawain goes with her brother to bring her back still thinking to marry her if it isn't too late which brings him to the inn in Leeds and his passionate encounter with Ann Haldene. Gawain continues on his way never realizing that his time with Ann will alter his life forever. Even though her healing arts work wonders on his war-ravaged body, he can't afford to be side tracked from his goal.

Ann Haldene is a half-Indian widow and now she has a child by a man not her husband. Gawain is willing to do right by her, but she hesitates because he doesn't love her. She only planned to remarry for love. For the sake of her child, she does end up accepting. She discovers quickly that she and Gawain have very different ideas of her role as his wife and her role as a healer. Their physical passion is not enough.

I thought the writing was very good. But I really didn't feel the love between Gawain and Ann.

I don't know when they fell in love or why. That Ann loved her first husband was never in doubt. There is even a passage in this book explaining how they met and her immediate response to him.

Other than the connection between them because of their son and their sexual attraction - I felt nothing between these two. And I thought that Gawain was a bit of a jerk to Ann on more than one occasion. I also don't think he ever really redeemed himself.

The murder mystery was ok - but definitely not riveting.

I don't think I would read this particular book again - but I will, without a doubt finish this series.

I really enjoyed reading His Wicked Smile (Redcakes), all about Gawain Redcake who is a tea importer along with herbs used for medicine & Mrs. Ann Holdene an owner of a Inn in Leeds. Gawain meets Ann at her Inn while he's traveling with his brother-In-law Judia Redcakes, in the search to find his sister-in-law Beth who ran off with Manfred Cross to Scotland. The entire family is in an up-roar over Beth running off! Gawain is in an awful lot of pain from his thigh, and doesn't travel well. Mrs. Holdene is an Indian princess & a healer and she has certain Sabs and oils that if messaged just right will loosen the knotted flesh and allow him to travel easier. The author wrote an incredible story and the characters, definitely bring the story to life. It's about two very different people who in the end have mutual goals that complement each other nicely. Read this book because it will make you Lau, cry, sigh, shake your head and cum a lot! This is the third book in the Redcake series and each one has been very different but intertwine's the entire family and leaves you satisfied yet yearning for more about this incredible family. Because of the time frame in history the men are portrayed as being the heads of the households and that women though important stay home and take care of the family & the house. Well in this family the women are incredible in their business sense as well as their homey sense, and tend to want to make decisions without their husbands consent, because after all they know what's best. I hope you enjoy reading the Redcake series as much as I've enjoyed reading it. I can't wait to read the fourth book in this series.
