This was my first read by Amanda Grange and owing to the quality of the story, plot line, and fascinating characters, it certainly won't be my last. A brilliant amalgamation of edgy romance, adventure, mystery and intrigue, it won me over from the opening pages.
The attraction between Lucien and Eleanor is palpable, but I would say that this is a clean romance. There are a few kisses, but other than that it's handsoff! Very sweet. The book is a simple straightforward romance between two sensible people who get to know each other while they are involved in a mystery and intrigue. Consequently, they get to know each other pretty well, pretty quickly and learn that they can rely on each other. From the first Lucien is intrigued by Eleanor's bravery and intelligence. There is none of the misunderstandings between the two that usually plague romance stories. They are two sensible, plain speaking people, who are attracted to each other and eventually fall in love. I highly recommend this book. It's one that I will definitely be reading again!
If you want a light, sweet, clean Regency, then this is a good book for you. If you want wit, excitement and adventure, I'd go with something else.
