What happens when a haughty, rakish aristocrat and a prim, beautiful schoolteacher are stranded in a deserted country inn together during a snowstorm? They fall in love, of course. But as all this takes place in fewer than 100 pages—and as this is a fairly conventional Regency-era romance—the story doesn't end so quickly or easily. Instead, Frances Allard denies her feelings, pushes Lucius Marshall away by refusing his offer to join him in London and, when they're coincidentally thrown together again in Bath, attempts to ignore him—all of which makes Lucius try even harder to get her attention. A devastating secret from Frances's past keeps her from giving in, even when Lucius proposes marriage, but this secret turns out to be so unsurprising and so easily surmountable that Lucius's 200 pages of pursuit hardly seems worthwhile. Readers will feel some satisfaction when this well-matched duo eventually come together, and as usual Balogh peppers her tale with vibrant, amiable secondary characters, including a handful of Frances's colorful schoolteacher friends and Lucius's merry sisters. However, this romance, which launches a new series focusing on the young ladies' academy where Frances works, is far more forgettable than Balogh's popular Bedwyn family Regencies. (Apr.)

When an author has created a series as beloved to readers as Balogh's Bedwyn saga, it is hard to believe that she can surpass the delights with the first installment in a new quartet. But Balogh has done just that with the erotic yet not lascivious tale of a prim schoolteacher and a rake. Thanks to an accident while returning to Miss Martin's School for Girls in Bath after a quiet Christmas with her elderly great-aunts, Frances Allard meets Lucius Marshall, the Viscount Sinclair, who is in a black mood over his promise to his beloved and ailing grandfather that he would marry soon. Spending two days together at an almost deserted inn, an interlude Balogh delectably details, they revel in each other's company. But once the road opens up, Frances continues her journey, although the reader knows that events will conspire to throw the schoolteacher and the viscount together again. Diana Tixier Herald

The behavior of the heroine when she first meets the hero seems totally out of character based on her background and personality. That was a big false note for me. Once I got past it, the rest of the story kept me reading well nto the night. And that also does not always happen for me with a Balogh book.
Frances does not discover that Lucien Marshall is a viscount (and therefore completely impossible, of course) until many plot twists and turns have occurred, but he is soon transformed from haughty rake to a likeable, responsible, impetuous young man who falls in love without understanding just what has occurred. Fully formed secondary characters populate Miss Martin's school and Lucien's family. Will this and the ensuing three books continue to entertain and enchant me? As Frances says so effectively, "Yes."
