This one is very obviously setting up for a continuation book, with danger and spying and most likely cloaks and daggers. The book has less sexual content (one explicit scene but more implied/less detailed ones) than book 1, but more violence. It's definitely not a clean Regency. Less sexual content is probably better, given some of the word choices the author makes, including a reference from a female character to her "cavern of delights".
This book casts the husband from the first book in an even more unpleasant light, and I have enjoyed the author's treatment of the troubles faced by illegitimate children in this period. Araminta (the beautiful older daughter from book 1) has not improved - in fact, I think she's actually gotten worse. She gets maybe more punishment than she really deserves in this one, but it really is a result of her own actions. She's not a sympathetic character. This book is liberally sprinkled with people you hope get run over by a runaway carriage. Maybe in the next book...
The characters are wonderful, rich and full bodied. The plot is complex but moves smoothly. There is intrigue, deceit, lies and traitors. Ralph has to work for Lord Debenham, who is under suspicion but has proven difficult, to acquire evidence against and he is not a nice man. Lissa is a governess in the Lamont house. Their son wishes to use her ability, to do excellent portraits and quickly. He wants to gain money and fame but he has no skill. The author was able to juggle these elements and more and still make the story make sense. She has done an exceptional job. Everything flows so well together to make an excellent book. I really love her work.
Lissa is so strong, hardworking and talented. She deserved only the best, not working for a family that does not appreciate her. The true darling of the story was Ralph Tunley. I loved how he spoke to Lissa and cared for her.
The mystery, intrigue, and romance kept me turning the pages long into the night.
It's not your usual Regency romance. That is what held my interest until The End. I highly recommend it.
