The overall plot is fantastic, the idea behind the story is quite exciting. There's a damsel in distress - Lillian St. James, daughter of a Duke whose father is being hunted for Treason. Definitely more than the usual scandal. With no protection or family members and her official guardian (the next Duke) who the heck knows where, she's forced to go into hiding. Coincidentally, the household she ends up joining as a kitchen assistant happens to belong to the man assigned by the crown to hunt for her, Dominic, an Earl. He's a handsome rake and more than a bit of a rogue. There's danger, because her step-father is still hunting for her as is the Crown, there's humor when it comes to her friends and there's a pretty decent amount of sexual tension.
The biggest problem with this story (other than the occasional verbal anachronisms - seriously, no one in the Victorian era called his friend "Buddy") is the fact that nothing is fully fleshed out. The dialogue is good, but there's a huge lack of descriptions of people, places, body language, and thoughts. When we do get to see into someone's head, the writing tends to be a little stilted, as if the author isn't comfortable trying to actually deal with the characters' emotions and thoughts.
Things are also a little too rushed. Dominic is after his kitchen maid in a big way, even though he knows it's wrong and it makes him feel like a "monster". Personally I thought the romantic/sexual tension would have been better served if he'd kept his hands completely off of her instead of ambushing her and kissing her senseless constantly.Read more ›
The "teddy bear" was named for President Theodore Roosevelt after a hunting incident that made quite a stir at the time. The incident resulted in the creation of the "Teddy Bear" in 1902 by two companies - one being the Steif company in Germany.
This mistake almost made me quit reading the book. However, after a fresh cup of coffee, I continued to read because I want to see how the book ends. I visited the author's website and found that she is writing two more books featuring other characters from this novel. I would like to see one featuring Chance - a very likable character. Hopefully, she will improve her writing skills in said novels.
The spelling and grammar were well done, it was easy to read.
The bad: Parts of it did not make sense. The mystery aspect was not well written. Some of the dialogue was really off, over wordy and cheesy. Their speech was just too melodramatic. A lot of the behavior was also not true to period. The aunt was inserted awkwardly in the storyline, and that whole aspect was just out of place. The last half of the book needs an edit to fix the flow. Also no real ending, as its part of a series. I need a happy ending/epilogue.
Overall: better than a lot of the cheaper kindle books. I got it free, so gave it 3 stars, worth reading at that price. I'm 50/50 on whether I would read anything by this author. I prefer more substantial stories.

This book has great characters and a very lively plot. The intrigue of the book is just as exciting as the romance. It is a very good book. I loved it!Published 4 months ago by Vicki Goodwin
Wanted an epilogue, with the comeuppance for the aunt, and some of the phrases were quite modern American instead of regency English, but enjoyable nonetheless.Published 4 months ago by Aussie Kelly
