I love the relationship between Grace and Crispin. There are sparks and much like other books, Crispin is the rake. This time, though, there is a unique angle to it... he isn't noble one bit. He is an artist. There's also a slim element of fantasy in that each have dreams that come true. I don't want to spoil it for anyone, but I just loved that tiny aspect.
I loved that Grace was real and didn't take too well to being treated as an object. I also loved that they each saw the other for their true selves. And of course, I love when romance blossoms no matter how hard the H/H try not to allow it.
Beautiful historical romance. I really enjoyed it!
It did feel like the ending was a little abrupt and I would have liked an epilogue.
But still a great read...check it out!!
Her mother commissions the famous artist, Crispin Hawke into sculpting Grace's hands.
Crispin is a 'commoner' who has been able to launch himself into becoming the most sought after artist in the Ton. He is not fatuous around them, instead he is arrogant and rude - which fans the fervor of his illusive and exclusive reputation.
The story launches into their attraction and the dilemna of how Crispin, a confirmed bachelor, falls in love with Grace, whose mother is committed to marrying her off to a titled man.
There are interesting plot twists and evil villains (not super evil, more annoying and rude).
This story has a nice happy ending. Has many steamy scenes - lots of chemistry between these two.
I loved Grace's dad. The rich American who doesn't buy into England's superficial need to elevate those that are born into a title, but don't do any work. He isn't rude, just a good guy.
The mother is also not a parody of the annoying, cloying mother that will throw her daughter at anyone with a title.
Crispin is a mix of the confirmed bachelor, pinch of alpha-male, hurt and insecure child, sex god and unconventional artist. He is the most interesting character of them all.
Grace is independent, sometimes insecure due to her height, sexually curious and interesting.
They both seem to be perfectly suited and you want to see them end up together. You can see how Grace 'chips away'at Crispin's hard exterior and eventually he gives himself completely to her.
This is definitely a 'light' romance novel.Read more ›

This book was very well written with a hero that I loved. Oh, Crispin! (sigh) I'm looking forward to reading more from this author.Published on April 12, 2014 by Queen of Everything
I would say over half of the book is fast paced, intriguing, and full of emotion. My heart ached for Crispin and loved him as a trouble soul. Read morePublished on March 4, 2014 by NavyWave62
