I am pretty much a stickler for authenticity in regency and UK based historical romances. There are rules for classes, servants, women, and so on, that I expect to be mostly followed. Glaring anachronisms spoil a story for me and annoy me when basic, easy research would prevent the anachronisms. However, for some reason, I am pretty lenient when it comes to western romances. This story does have modern language and it does have anachronisms, but I still loved it.
The plot was funny and the hero was extremely likeable. He was a naive, hapless screw-up in many ways, but he was kind, good, basically honest despite his circumstances, and he was very loveable. The heroine was likeable, as were other secondary characters, and the villains were solid, stereotypical bad guys, the kind who foreclose on elderly widows and tie heroines to the railroad tracks, while twirling their moustaches. What's not to like about that?
This is a lighthearted story, perfect for when you need something to lift the spirits and make you laugh. If you approach this book looking for period accuracy and a believable story, you will be disappointed. However, if you are open minded and approach it as one of those books where the magic of make-believe outweighs the flaws in accuracy, you will probably love it. I view it the way I view fairy tales; how believable are they?
P.S. There are graphic sex scenes within marriage.
I chose this book when I saw that it featured Jenny - a strong character in the Larson family, first featured in `Eye of the Beholder' a single mother battling the prejudice of the narrow minded people in town.
This book is really lightweight compared to the excellent Eye of the Beholder and good His Redeeming Bride
Owen starts well, helping his aunt, but soon the story becomes quite farcical. While I really liked the relationship between Owen and Jenny and her little boy, there was no real depth to any of it. Disappointing based on the previous family stories.
I felt that it was a lost opportunity to develop Jenny's story seriously as the idea of her finding happiness with Owen could have been as rewarding as the story of Mary and Dave in E of the B.
If you are looking for excellent emotional romance, give this one a miss.
If you looking for a light romantic read with comedy elements, this may be just the ticket.
