Tense, gripping--could easily have been a historical
on December 26, 1998
In only 220 odd pages, Loretta Chase has managed to convey the complexities of plot and emotion and characterization that are typical of a 400 page historical. Quite a feat. When I put the book down, I had to read it again. Amanda Cavencourt, at 26, seems awfully naive and trusting, but she has reason to be. And she isn't *really* like that--how else does she manage to steal the Sandalwood Princess from an accomplished thief like the Falcon? And Brentick, who really is--well, I'll let you figure it out. In any case, he is a wonderful hero. Go out and find this book along with all of Chase's regencies. They are hard to find but definitely worth the hunt.
