*** Rayfield was introduced in the Ms. Laik's debut THE LADY IS MINE, and while this follows more closely the formula of a traditional regency, lacking the raciness of the former, it is none the less a splendid read. This story's plot had more of an adventure and suspense tone allowing it to keep the pace moving forward in a fast clip making it a very quick, though thoroughly enjoyable read.
Rayfield himself was an honorable man who was truly baffled by the seemingly suspicious behavior of Charlotte as he followed her movements. Being a master spy he seemed only to read her movements as suspect rather than trying to comprehend that they were innocent and giving acts of kindness. Being left high and dry by her rapscallion father, Charlotte knew her only option was to marry well and though she was genuinely attracted to Rayfield she thought him to be a gamester like her father and knew better than to pin any hopes of a future on him.
With a lovely regency voice Ms. Laik fashions a sweet tale that fans of this genre should look forward to without the shock value that some authors utilize in spicing up their romances. Laik focuses more on character development and building a memorable love story which is very refreshing. This book should be put on all traditional Regency genre lovers shopping lists.
