The often subtle and the not so subtle humor in the fast moving conversations between Henrietta and Dominic keep the story moving and i intriguing. Many English words not in my recognition vocabulary, as well as words used by the British but not common in the U.S.A. kept me running to the dictionary. I like words!!!
But you came to read my thoughts on this book written by Jessica Nelson. Well, to say I loved it would be an understatement. What I found in the pages of this story was unconventional, unique & unusual topics among other things. A woman who dabbles in apothecary & desires to be a doctor, a gentleman thrust into Lordship & guardianship of his niece who also suffers from a deliberating disease, an uncle & dowager “aunt” who plays matchmaker…these set it apart for me! I love the unusual and unconventional in a book. Not to mention a stubborn, hard-headed, highly independent heroine who doesn’t hesitate to speak her mind, a hero trying to reform himself, and an up and coming young lady who throws convention out the window! Sparking against each other with every encounter and the underlying attraction between them. Makes for a thrilling, entertaining novel of epic proportions, overlaced with faith, of course! Why yes, I would highly recommend it for Regency fans and those, who like me, crave something different in their stories.

So -- Dominic -- excuse me while I languish on my fainting couch while I type this because he is such a swoonworthy hero! A little bit brooding (with good reason) and a whole lot appealing. His heart for his niece made me a fan first because who can resist a grown man turned to putty at the hands of a precocious twelve-year-old? But their relationship is complicated and in danger -- hence the need for a governess.
Henrietta might be considered an unorthodox choice, but there's no disputing the fact that she is highly intelligent...and opinionated. And not shy about speaking her mind. Sparks fly and the air fairly crackles with electricity every time Dom and Henrietta share a scene and thankfully they share many. And the almost kissing scenes are just as charged as the actually kissing scenes so consider yourselves forewarned.
A sublime example of everything that's right with a Regency.
I loved the growth of Henrietta and Dominic's relationship. From instant dislike, to acceptance, to admiration, to love, these two sparked with electricity when together. Their feelings were so tangible and their chemistry undeniable. And Nelson can write a great kissing scene!
I have to say Nelson's attention to the details of the time period were spot on. She completely captured the era and I hope she continues to write in the genre.
I received a copy of this book for review and wrote my honest thoughts.
Jessica Nelson managed to capture my interest on the first page and held it throughout the book. She has crafted very believable character that I became invested in early on and the plot was wonderfully done as well. I loved every minute and finished in one day! Now I'm off to find more to read by Jessica Nelson.
