From Publishers Weekly
As in Quick's Surrender , the crux of this new Regency is one night's indiscretion, a ruined reputation and a hurried wedding. But despite the title, this is no rape-'em-and-romance-'em. Harriet Pomeroy, the woman in question, is--at the grand old age of 25--perfectly capable of handling herself. In fact, she's more concerned with the reputation of her outsize fiance, Gideon Westbrook, aka the Viscount St. Justin, aka The Beast of Blackthorne Hall, who supposedly abandoned another woman after bedding her. After her unconventional engagement, Harriet, her sister and aunt leave the backwater of Upper Biddleton in search of polite polish during London's season while adventure and, inevitably, love tag along. An avid antiquities nerd with a decided predilection for moldy teeth, Harriet is a cheery, intensely likable character, one well matched by the battered and beleaguered Gideon. Although more romance than Regency--a few articles of clothing and a liberal sprinkling of the word ton suffice for atmosphere--genre aficionados will find this a spiffy read.

All that said, there is a satisfying comfort and familiarity in the course of the tale. In addition, while the heroines have similar basic characteristics, each expresses them in some unique way. Each has her own paved, personality and small quirks that keep me coming back for another even knowing the rough outline of events. Like potato chips or popcorn, it's very hard to take just one.
Gideon, Viscount St. Justin – The Beast of Blackthorne Hall – is a fabulous damaged hero. Harriet is an independent, seaside township “original” with a passion for cave fossil hunting. Amanda Quick writes heroes with emotional or physical scars from their past (or in this case, both). They’re the perfect dark and brooding hunks. And her heroines are bright and colorful, smart and honest, and positive yet realistic. Perfect for each other. My original copy is falling apart, so I repurchased it recently for my Kindle. A simple day surgery last week gave me the perfect couple of days to enjoy this fun romp one more time. Love it!

Delightful characters, an interesting story, and well-written to boot.
