This was a great pleasure to read. Good writing with no lengthy descriptions of clothes every other paragraph and with no vulgar sex descriptions. The story was great with little (and sometimes big) surprises all along. I hope that Alicia Rasley writes many more of these Regency romances. I will buy them all.
All in all, I was very pleasantly surprised, and will certainly try the author's other books.
Rasley certainly tries hard, but she needs an editor to cut out about 50% of the book and to advise her where scenes need some beefing up. In her case, more is not usually better. In comparison, Georgette Heyer's books never seem to waste a word, a scene or a characterization. You feel IN the scenes she describes. Rasley's just not up to that level of expressiveness, wit, and insightfulness into human character and motivation. But, at least she tries to present a wide panorama of the life and political history of the times. If only she didn't make the same points over and over and over and over again.
