More About the Author

I was born and raised in Southern California where I currently live with my husband, our kids, and our crazy animals. I have worked as a veterinary technician for almost ten years but I have always been in love with romance novels. It started about the age of 14 when my aunt would send boxes of books to us and I would sneak out all the books with half naked men on them. I was an insatiable reader and at that time had started to write my own stories to appease my imagination. The birth of my son really pushed me to achieve my dream. Being an author means so much more to me than just selling books. It means having the freedom to be home with my kids through every stage of their lives, no longer missing out on family events like birthdays and holidays due to work. Life is too short to spend it clocked in on someone elses time clock. Writing about falling in love is a true joy. I get to relive those feelings every time I read a book or write my own and it never gets old. For the first time I can see myself doing something for the rest of my life and being happy.

This is the first novel I've read by D.L. Rose... if she continues to improve in her writing I think that eventually she could write some really great Victorian romances. This one needs improvement.

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.

If I could have given this book a zero I would have. First, the language in this book is completely current and not at all in keeping with the time in which the book should have taken place. The conversations between the characters are excruciating to read. A true fan of historical romance will cringe at all of the mistakes, the grammatical errors, the flaws in names. A casual reader will be bored to tears at this utterly predictable and overused plot. There is nothing memorable, endearing or even interesting about the characters. Usually I won't review a book unless I've finished it but by 72% I couldn't take anymore of this drivel. Truly the worst book I've read this year and I've read close to three hundred. Truly terrible.

I would love to give this book 4 or 5 stars because it has a really good plot and very likable characters. I was enjoying this book until I came to the part where Lilly retrieves the "teddy bear" from her armoire. This was almost as jarring as another Regency novel I read with the phrase "wardrobe malfunction". I was very sure that the teddy bear, as we know it, did not exist in this time period. I went to Wikipedia to see the history of when the first teddy bears were created.

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.

Badly written historical. Everyone speaks like its 2013. There is no authenticity to the era in this book at all.

I purchased this book after reading the free sample since it seemed to have a hint of mystery. After I purchased this book,I realised that the rest of the book was poorly edited and badly written.The hero starts groping the heroine even before they've spoken a few sentences.Yuck! I returned this book for a refund.

Dominic don’t exactly conduct himself as a man of honor around the kitchen help. The most idiotic is how Lillian constantly try to push him of by telling him that she can lose her post if she gives in to his advances. He is her EMPLOYER, a huge problem for staff at that time (and still is) is that a woman that DENY to give in to her employers lecherous desires risk losing her job. He could have tipped her over and raped her on the kitchen table without any risk. (and I do hope he don’t do that) So what she is saying in basic is that the butler and housekeeper has more power than her own master. I did not get any further, it just became plain to silly with her lame argumentation towards the man that back then could fire or keep her on a whim. I’m glad it was free, would have irked me to pay for this nonsense.

The good: I enjoyed the main characters, and some of the secondary ones. The couple had great chemistry. It was a substantial story, and had promise.
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.
