One really odd part was why the heroine's aunt and uncle agreed to help the niece become a grifter and when they went home, why did they disappear from the story?they were integral for the first 3/4 of the book but then they went to their room to tidy up from their trip never to be heard from again until the last page! I liked them more than the other characters.
I kept reading because there is enough good in the book to lead you into hoping for Great.....it is not your usual romance novel, and I think a bit harsh on the heroine, sanctimonious even; we are supposed to like the heroine, not judge her.
I was surprised that the author seemed a bit snarky at times towards her heroine, if you don't like your heroine, how are we going to like her?
This is the second book by Megan Bryce that I've read and I've enjoyed both. She is a very good writer, keeps the story going at a good pace and doesn't waste time with gratuitous, explicit sex. I love the way her mind works as she creates her plot and supporting characters, too. I recommend her books to anyone who enjoys a clean Regency romance.
The heroine is a fraud. She lives almost on the run with her aunt and uncle, making money by getting engaged and finding a way to get the man to call it off. Her threat to ruin the man's honor forces him to pay her off. She meets the hero at a lecture series regarding the use of steam - to power trains, ships, etc.
The hero was in a slump. As a younger son he needed profession, and his father had decided he would go into the church. The problem was the hero didn't believe. He had been in love with a young woman. The woman had married another man - the hero's twin brother.
So, both of the main characters have a dim view of the opposite sex. She sees him as a sour troll, and he sees her as a shrewish twig.
The story of the two coming together, and their back stories, is beautifully and slowly unfolded. I am sure I will read it again.
So what was it I didn't like? Well, I didn't care much for the heroine. Although tortured by her past, she was determined and brave, but her methods were not honorable. I am just not a fan of lies and deceit. Secondly, the hero was just as unlikable until the last couple of chapters. Thirdly, because the story was a bit depressing, I was tempted to skim through. I didn't. I am glad I kept reading because the end helped to balance the beginning....almost. Lastly, I missed Ms. Bryce's signature humor. There was a small amount of dry humor, but not enough. The subject matter of the plot really didn't allow it. Too bad.
FYI: This is a clean book. No sex or violence. However, the subject matter is rated PG-14.
