On Bow Street, Elizabeth runs into Dysart. This meeting was wonderful...full of humor and unexpected emotions! Elizabeth decides to hire Dysart and they come up with a plan that he will attend the house party as a guest while trying to dig up facts on if the Duke is being poisoned.
The time these two spent together was great! I loved how Elizabeth was such a strong willed female and how Dysart enjoyed being with her. It was such a fun cat and mouse game trying to figure out what was happening to her father. The suspense of this story line made me not want to put this book down. The sexual attraction between these two was just icing on the cake.
Dysart's backstory added another twist to this tale. The final explosive ending was great. All in all I really enjoyed this book and could not put it down.
I also thought the romance itself was a little thinly drawn. I couldn't figure out why the H and h fell in love. She was drawn to his... intelligence? Air of mystery? He was drawn to her... good hostessing skills. According to him, she was a great hostess, dealt with problems in the kitchen, and welcomed people warmly. Um. Also, after they get together at the end (hope that wasn't a spoiler), I wish there had been a little more resolution in terms of what happens with them (were they ever accepted by his family? How did society react to what would have been a fairly scandalous pairing?, etc).
Overall, it wasn't a terrible read, but it sure was forgettable. I finished the book about 36 hours ago and had to rack my brain just now to remember enough to write this review.
I received an ARC from the publisher via netgalley in exchange for my honest review of this book.
Level of heat: 2.5 on a scale of 1-5. I'd like to point out that a young lady of the ton losing her virginity, especially to someone 'not of her class,' under the watchful eyes of chaperones and parents, was not very believable, nor were the multiple sex scenes. Was no one paying attention? That said, it worked well in the story line.
One of the better regency style romances I've read lately. 4 stars
*ARC via netgalley*
I would like to see where the author takes this series so I'm looking forward to the next book.
