Christian and Helene clash at first and subsequent meetings. Love. Enter the Delacroix family to cause problems.
The story is a lovely clean regency romance. Feels a bit rushed in the end as the problems are resolved.
Basically, she comes across as wishy-washy, high maintenance and demanding. The rest of the story was not good enough to make up for my strong dislike of her.
But I've read worse.
Criticisms: I love a female protagonist who has strong views and can skewer her "adversaries" with sparkling, acerbic, intelligent humor. Helene often comes off as plodding and dull with dialogue that puckers with vinegar rather than bubble with humor. The male protagonist, Christian, Baron Shrewsbury, is a little better, especially as he reminds Helene that she'll catch more flies with honey rather than vinegar. While I understood each of their perspectives, I had a difficult time establishing an emotional connection with either of the main characters.
Bottom line: "The Baron..." provides a brief glimpse into early views of female equality in a clearly defined and rigid English class system, but it does so without humor thus leaving this reader largely uninterested.
