I liked the basic premise of the story, and the hero, Michael (though I question his taste in friends), but Alys and her sister were awful. Not a keeper.
Also, at times I felt a connection to our H and h, and then bam - they felt like strangers. They seemed to have a better understanding of each other when they first met.
The lovemaking was somewhat descriptive. Because my feeling for the couple were all over the place, I didn't feel the passion when they made love.
The book is priced just above $1, and I'd say it is worth it. But, right now I have the second book in the series on my wish list because it is priced at $1.99 and I wouldn't want to pay that for this book, so waiting to see if it will drop in price.
I did like the uniqueness of the story, and it does pull at your heartstrings on how women couldn't have a brain, nor work outside the home. This story takes place less than 130 in the past and as the saying goes WE'VE COME A LONG WAY BABY, but still along way to go in wages - right?!!
The character's will have you loving them or hating them, they are all over the place in the feelings that will bring out in you. I always like to mention if there is a cliffhanger, and it is hard to explain in this story. Only one small question regarding our H/h has you wondering. There is more to know about the brother too. I understand this is a series, and most author's don't do an epilogue because they continue the story in the next book, but I love Epilogues. We do get HEA and the road isn't smooth sailing either.
I did have a question as to how Rose discovered something (not telling a spoiler) near the end of the story about our H/h that wasn't explained.
So yes, I recommend this book, but it isn't going to be the best Regency Story you've read, so keep that in mind. (ljb)
Heather Hoestand is a new writer for me, but I plan on reading more from her.
Bottom line: it's an okay read, but I don't feel compelled to read the sequels that address the lives and I loves of Alys' self-centered sisters.
