Ms. Rolls often uses communication breakdown as a plot device. This story is similar in that regard but has the advantage of being a short story so the reader is not tortured along with the characters in her usual way. The description is vivid, the emotion is convincing and the backstory is cleverly done. The characters were well rounded, especially considering the length of the story. The twists were satisfying and gave richness to the plot. This is one of the most enjoyable Elizabeth Rolls stories I have read.

Let me start out by saying I ADORE Elizabeth Rolls. I read His Lady Mistress a few months ago and I loved the style so much I had read all her other books in a month. (and have been re-reading them ever since!) I was so excited there was a new one coming out I pre-ordered it! I was disappointed. It is a short story, and I felt gypped because one of my favorite things about E.R. is her beautiful descriptive style, you can become intimate with the characters and really visualize the story. I felt this one was too fast and too shallow. The plot was predictable and the characters weren't as developed as she typically does. Added to the fact that I just couldn't get over the the guy's name is Evelyn and the girl's name is Loveday. I do want to reiterate though that the only reason I didn't like the book is because Elizabeth Rolls sets the bar so high in all her other books!

Since I was expecting a full lenght novel, I was disappointed by the shortness of the story. For your money, get any of the other Elizabeth Rolls's books.

This is the most satisfying of the Harlequin 'Undone' series I've read. Nicely rounded story with believable characters and plot, tricky to achieve in the shorter format. Loved the motif of the paintings, and as usual with Elizabeth, fabulous sense of time and place. Well done Elizabeth Rolls.

I happen to like short romance stories for the quick gratification they supply so for me this is a plus- not a negative. I make note of this because I see that some other reviewers site the length of this story as a disappointment. I'm actually happy this one was short because although I really loved the story at first I found it less likable the further I got into it. The plot was pretty transparent - which is fine with me and in fact when I realized where it was going I was really excited because I thought it had a lot of potential for poignant moments and passionate dialog but alas it fell short. Personally I'm not fond of submissive heroines and Loveday was that - too submissive. Parts of it seemed tawdry (including her name). Evelyn Fitzhugh, Viscount St. Austell well.. he did have his moments but overall I think his social make up and station needed to be elaborated a bit more so the reader felt a bit more empathetic. I think Lionel and his relationship with his sister and St. Austell could have been elaborated a bit more. If we had known more of the friendship that had been lost between all 3 of them I think it would have given St. Austell more humanity. By the end of it I had to skip over the sex scene. It was just too bawdy for me without enough emotional set up. Plus it was a bit explicit for reunion sex. The leads hadn't been together in 6 years so it seemed a bit much for their first time back in the saddle so to speak. For me the most compelling character was St. Austell's almost fiancée Miss Angaston. She had more depth than the others including the leads. Unless you are a huge fan of Elizabeth Rolls I'd skip this one.

Paperback
The Harlequin Historical Undone series are usually not issued in print, although I seem to remember seeing one collection of stories in print.

On the brighter side, since they are so short (maybe 55-70 pages vs. maybe 280 for a regular Harlequin Historical), they aren't quite as unpleasant to... Read More
