This book is really about two love relationships, because it spends just as much time on Lord and Lady Ashmore as it does on George and Elinor. This relationship was harder to read about. Lady Ashmore is kind, gracious, funny and very likable. Lord Ashmore is a jerk. He's prosy, proud and overbearing. He has not touched his wife in over a year since he loves her and was so worried when she almost died from the last pregnancy. I felt a little sorry for him, but he's so clueless and uncommunicative I mostly wanted to box his ears. Then the book hints that *maybe* he's getting his male needs met elsewhere and I never recovered any liking for him, even when he grovels to his wife - which is an excellent make-up scene. But the damage had already been done for me. He would have needed to clarify that he never committed adultery for me to be won over.

A major theme in the book is Elinor losing her first child and then not conceiving again afterwards. She grieves, and the scene is very moving and sad. It's well written, and I like the occasional touching scene to move my emotions. But speaking from experience, this might be hard to read about for someone currently experiencing infertility or loss of a child.

Overall this book is very well written and well edited. It held my attention and I read it in two long sittings without ever feeling the need to set it aside. This is the second book I've read by this author and I really enjoyed To Tame A Dragon (The Reluctant Bride Collection Book 2) also. Elinor's reluctance to get married could have become tiresome (which is often the case in other books) but the author keeps the story moving forward at a steady pace as the characters develop, and analyze and accept their own emotions and circumstances. Very well done. I liked this book, but it's not a keeper.
Additional note: I bought this book at the introductory price of .99 cents and would never pay $6.99+ for a kindle book. I won't even spend that much on Kleypas, Balogh, Heyer, Burrowes, Quinn or other favorites. I'm making this comment because I find that sometimes my reading experience is directly proportional to what I spend on a book - the more I spend the more I expect. Since I only spent .99 cents, I was easy to please. If I had spent over $3.99 (my general max) I might have been pickier, though this book may have held up to the challenge.
This novel is a page-turner. I couldn't put it down. The story also is about Sebastian and his wife, Flora. We get to read two love stories -- Sebastian and Flora's story is implied to an HEA ending while we follow George and Elinor's story from start to finish. The author uses secondary characters to warn George and Elinor apart. Well, except the Countess who sees the value in Elinor. I now have a back list to read; books one and two in the series.
