I loved the idea of this book. Misbehaving daughter of a duke gets sent to the country only to find that her imprisonment is going to be a lot worse than she originally thought. Enter in Mr. Fox, owner of the shabby orphanage she is supposed to be helping with, and you have yourself a delicious love story just waiting to burst forth!
I have to say, Miss Burke does a FANTASTIC job with describing her characters emotions as well as the reasons for their choices. The depth of the characters was amazing, and I often found my chest clenching at all of the different circumstances they found themselves in!
The only problem I have with this book was that Lady Miranda waits until the very end to finally realize she's in love with Fox, and even then it's almost like she still has this "holier than thou," attitude. Things are quickly set to rights in the epilogue, where she gushes about being with such a wonderful man, but still. As a reader it bothered me, because, to be quite honest. I was obsessed and am still obsessed with fox. He pretends to be a highwayman. Wears a mask. Works with his shirt off. Saves young children-I mean really? Come on? What more could the girl ask for!
And in the end she's still not sure about him!
HE SAVES LITTLE KIDS!
All in all, it's a wonderful book. I would totally recommend this delightful regency romance to anyone who wants an interesting and provoking read. I give it a lovely rose.
A word of warning, a few graphic sex scenes.
Hats off, Miss Burke
Montgomery Foxcroft, or Fox, is desperate to repair the damage his father did to his childhood home and his childhood legacy, the orphanage. He knows he can not turn out the children but he is in desperate need of funds and leads a double life as a highwayman occasionally. When the beautiful, but extremely out of place, wealthy Miranda arrives he starts to think maybe his prayers have been answered. All he simply most do is get caught compromising the young beauty and he will have plenty of wealth to save his orphanage. But as Miranda does not know that Fox is the highwayman, she finds herself attracted to Fox but all her thoughts are for the highwayman.Read more ›
I liked watching the transformation of Miranda - from spoiled society snob to a loving, giving woman. And Fox was just perfect from the get go.
This book had everything I like in a HR; humor, drama without too much angst, excellent supporting characters and hot, steamy love scenes!
I am looking forward to reading tech rest of these series.
I felt fully immersed when reading and I was impressed to learn this is a debut novel. I picked this up as a kindle freebie and on the strength of how I lost myself in this story and ultimately walked away feeling satisfied, last night I purchased 'His Wicked Heart' too.
