The first book in the Ladies of Paradise Road. I read Dishonor and Desire first and it was so good I wanted to read the beginning of the story.

Lady Amelie Chester moves to Richmond with her niece, Caterina. Caterina is the main character in the second book.

They meet up with Lord Nicholas Elyot and his brother Lord Rayne Seton. Nicholas knows he wants Amelie from the get go and when she claims to be in an arrangement with him to scare off a blackmailer he walks in on the conversation and uses it

The writing was good, but extremely boring. There were only a few chapters -or scenes- I actually enjoyed, and it never really had me excited or wanting to know what happened next. I'm not even sure how I finished reading it in the first place. I didn't feel a true connection between the characters nor any chemistry, and didn't like a lot of the main characters, so I will definitely not be reading number two.

As the author of books on embroidery design, the progression in 1994 from fact to fiction was perhaps less daunting for Juliet than it might have been for a complete beginner. But in many ways, the requirements are similar: a strong imagination and sense of design; an eye for detail; a love of color, scenery, and research; and a willingness to share inner thoughts and feelings with readers.
