The true climax was the last chapter! It would ruin the story if you read the last chapter first. Trust me, there is enough going on in Beth's life you won't want to miss a word!
Any teen can read this story because it is clean, no foul language or gratuitous sex; just a few chasted kisses!
This was an interesting and entertaining story. The characters were well described with the many parties and lunches they attended. I enjoyed the story. At the end everything came together.
This was a unique idea for a story. The circumstances of their marriage are one that I've never seen before in my reading. I'll just say that Beth's father was despicable and her mother not much of a protector. Not sure that I blame the mother though.
The relationship is such that much could have been resolved with just a little communication instead of just letting things ride but I was okay with that. I was frustrated by the groom's inattentiveness though he seemed to want to care about his wife. I think he should have been far more worried for her in her naivety as the ton would love to tear her to pieces. As it is written only a couple women were horrible toward her. Too bad one of them is his sister.
The biggest problem I had with the story is that it wrapped up too quickly. I found their declarations of love to be unbelievable since they had spent so little time together and really didn't know or understand each other. So, maybe a little less time setting up their situation and a little more time resolving it would have been better for me. Still I was glad to see them move into their happily ever after.
No sex, language or violence
I loved the hero’s sense of honor as well as the secondary characters but I was going crazy with the hero's inaction to strengthen his relationship with Beth. I mean, he constantly notices his bride is nervous around him but doesn't act on her insecurities til the very end of the book!
Well rounded secondary characters that enhanced the book but I just wished it was longer. Sweet Regency romance.

And, in 1805 definitely no housekeeper worth her salt would have said to her countess "come dearie" ... actually, it's not done nowadays either.
And, even as a countess she would never ever have survived in society when she was (sorry spoiler) bought at an auction and the story got out. No way; they would have had to retreat for many years from the social scene and the earls political career would have been terminated instantly.
What is it with american writers? Either the period is badly researched (or not at all) or some harebrained story line is dreamed up that would never have been possible. I'm sorry, but the whole book keeps on being so irritating, that it's really not worth reading it.
