I loved the idea of this book. Misbehaving daughter of a duke gets sent to the country only to find that her imprisonment is going to be a lot worse than she originally thought. Enter in Mr. Fox, owner of the shabby orphanage she is supposed to be helping with, and you have yourself a delicious love story just waiting to burst forth!
I have to say, Miss Burke does a FANTASTIC job with describing her characters emotions as well as the reasons for their choices. The depth of the characters was amazing, and I often found my chest clenching at all of the different circumstances they found themselves in!
The only problem I have with this book was that Lady Miranda waits until the very end to finally realize she's in love with Fox, and even then it's almost like she still has this "holier than thou," attitude. Things are quickly set to rights in the epilogue, where she gushes about being with such a wonderful man, but still. As a reader it bothered me, because, to be quite honest. I was obsessed and am still obsessed with fox. He pretends to be a highwayman. Wears a mask. Works with his shirt off. Saves young children-I mean really? Come on? What more could the girl ask for!
And in the end she's still not sure about him!
HE SAVES LITTLE KIDS!
All in all, it's a wonderful book. I would totally recommend this delightful regency romance to anyone who wants an interesting and provoking read. I give it a lovely rose.
A word of warning, a few graphic sex scenes.
Hats off, Miss Burke
Montgomery Foxcroft, or Fox, is desperate to repair the damage his father did to his childhood home and his childhood legacy, the orphanage. He knows he can not turn out the children but he is in desperate need of funds and leads a double life as a highwayman occasionally. When the beautiful, but extremely out of place, wealthy Miranda arrives he starts to think maybe his prayers have been answered. All he simply most do is get caught compromising the young beauty and he will have plenty of wealth to save his orphanage. But as Miranda does not know that Fox is the highwayman, she finds herself attracted to Fox but all her thoughts are for the highwayman.Read more ›
I liked watching the transformation of Miranda - from spoiled society snob to a loving, giving woman. And Fox was just perfect from the get go.
This book had everything I like in a HR; humor, drama without too much angst, excellent supporting characters and hot, steamy love scenes!
I am looking forward to reading tech rest of these series.
The story takes place in 1816, the year that Europe did not have a summer due to atmospheric conditions caused by an eruption of Mt. Tambura in Indonesia. Crops failed and there was famine. Since the H depended on the funds from the crops supporting everything, when they failed it meant destitution for those he cared for and it would last for the next year and a half. Fox had even taken to highway robbery to get enough money to feed the orphans. He wasn't a very successful robber though, so it didn't help enough.
The h, Lady Miranda Sinclair, enjoys stirring up trouble and runs with the wrong crowd. Her parents are at their wits end trying to protect her from scandal when she gets caught in a compromising situation in one of the dark walkways at Vauxhall Park. The choice is to send her to a convent or to a cousin who lives in a rural area to see if she can stay out of trouble while her parents find someone suitable for her to marry. The parents decide the cousin's home is the best choice. There she will only be allowed to read the Bible, will not be allowed to attend social affairs, and maybe learn to respect her parents. One of the jobs she will have is volunteering with her cousin's daughter at the local orphanage. Her first job is combing lice from the children's hair. (That was pretty funny.Read more ›
