Together, this couple is just perfect! It's a bumpy road and they do some foolish things, but they simply cannot deny how much they care for each other, not even when they try. I find that in many romance novels the characters don't even seem to like each other and things end up feeling forced. Not in this story. Kasey Michaels is the Queen of banter! While Lucas and Nicole test each others' wit and often end up tongue tied, there are little electric sparks floating around the characters. They freely admit to liking each other and feel that a coupling is inevitable.
I can't praise this novel enough. It has a little of everything you could possibly want. Lucas and Nicole are great friends, great sparring partners, and great lovers!
It might be possible, although difficult, to look past such careless errors if the book itself were very good, but it is not. It is average only, with flat characters and a completely improbable plot that is not helped by the convolutions the author has it take. The book feels as thought it was written in a hurry, carelessly, and without proof-reading or research. The errors in the titles assigned to the characters bears this out.
I sometimes wonder, when I find these types of errors (and this author is by no means the only offender) whether people in the UK ever bother to read historical novels set in England and written by American authors. I hope they don't; it's to embarrassing to think about. On the other hand, maybe they are getting a good laugh out of it. Considering the shameless use these American authors make of a history that is not theirs while not making the effort to at least get the details right, I think the folks across the Atlantic are entitled to be amused at our expense.
For his part, he reciprocates, but knows the timing is bad. He has a need for vengeance against the rogue who destroyed his family and so has no room for a perky duke's sister. However, in spite of his efforts to stay away he cannot, which places the woman he is falling in love with in danger from his archenemy and his mission in jeopardy of failure.
The second Daughtry family Regency romance (see HOW TO TEMPT A DUKE) is an engaging tale due to the relationship between the feisty female and the suddenly distracted avenging Marquess. The support cast is solid especially her family and his sorrowful mother. Although the plot device has been used frequently in historical, Kasey Michaels provides her audience with an engaging tale.
