I thought this and the other O'Keefe book, SENSELESS SENSIBILITIES, would be enjoyable little Regency romances, somewhat like the Signet Regencies put out in the 1980s and 1990s, so I downloaded both onto my Kindle. But after reading them I'm at a loss as to how to categorize them. Are they written for adults? Was the author seriously trying for a romantic and heartfelt story? I feel like I must have been reading them with the wrong attitude to have such a radically different opinion from the other reviews here. But they were not my cup of tea and I didn't enjoy them as much as I would have liked. The characters were unidimensional, the dialogue was not very inspired, and the plot was underdeveloped.

Terrible editing, poorly realized characterization, no historical references and anachronistic language meld together to make a thoroughly disappointing waste of money. I don't normally make an effort to squelch the creativity of any author, but please...spare us more of this mindless drivel. None of the characters had any character at all, and every one of them was fickle and foolish.

I enjoyed this story. The heroine is charming. The story starts with the heroine, Alice, in dire straits: aged eleven without shelter, cold, hungry, with her mother dying. Baron Hawkins, the hero, seeing her shivering on a street corner gives her some coins. The background activity paints Hawkins as a kind person without much serious purpose. Alice arrives hungry and cold at the Baron's door. With his sister's help, Alice is raised as the Baron's ward. The path forward is not completely smooth, but there is a satisfying happily-ever-after. There is also a pleasant side romance of the Baron's sister Laura.

The premise of the book is that a man takes in an orphan, who grows up and they fall in love. Unless you think Woody Allen and Soon-Yi had a romantic story, skip this one.

...because it does the same basic plot much better. The little girl becoming a lord's ward, growing up and both falling in love with each other plot. The author here does just too much telling, not enough showing, and I wasn't buying that the story was really taking place in the Regency period because the characters talked and behaved as if they lived today. For instance the baron horseplays with his ward in the beginning as if they're teenagers today, not a Regency gentleman 18 years older than the young unrelated lady. Would Emma and Mr. Knightley behaved that way in the Austen book? Of course any historical fiction written after the fact does (and should) contain elements of the author's own time, but read any highly respected Regency romance writer, like Georgette Heyer, to see the difference I mean. The difference is between believeably evoking the Regency period, the world of Jane Austen, and cheapening it to tell a so-so romance that could be set in any time. If you prefer quality approaching Heyer, you won't find it here. On the other hand, if you want a light romance and the details don't matter, you might enjoy this book.
