Yvette makes the worst possible choice among the four and before she knows what's happening, she's on her way to London with a pretend uncle and his nephew who have less than honorable plans for her life. But, providence prevails in the guise of a highwayman, who is actually Lord Richard out on a lark to rescue Yvette. Lord Richard does succeed, but he is wounded in the process, however - he still manages to get her to his home where his father recognizes her face and eventually realizes that Yvette's mother was a beloved family friend. Thankfully, Yvette has a safe harbor and the story takes off.
The characters in this novel were great, however, there was waaayyy too much action. Also, normally there are two main characters - a hero and a heroine, but in this book, there were three heroes and three heroines. Yes, one could say that Yvette and Lord Richard were the primary characters, however, nearly as much space was given in the book for two other couples. I was nearly dizzy by the time I finished this book and had to make myself keep reading because I lost interest about half way through. Three stars for this dizzy, action filled book which after awhile seemed to be action for action's sake and didn't add much to the story. Again - great characters, but somewhat boring storyline.
Chater has excellent writing mechanics skills. Her romance books are very traditional and low key, old fashioned, even. Normally, this is what I like about her books; they are a restful change from some of the more graphic, fast paced books I read. In this particular book, however, what promises to be an engaging plot is rendered tedious and annoying by too many main characters, too many sub-plots, too many coincidences, too many misunderstandings, and some by turns, stultifying and overly cutesy dialogue.
I love traditional regencies and Georgette Heyer, so I am predisposed to like this type of romance. This one just did not engage me and I actually hated it. If I hadn't been reading it on a tablet, I would have been inclined to throw it at the nearest wall.
excitement and belief that the protagonists care deeply for one another .
