Liked this book a lot too. It's very different. It opens with the hero being asked by his mother to go fetch a young girl from a solicitor's office. The girl's mother was once a dear friend, and now both the girl's mother and father have died, and the hero's mother has been asked to look after her. Except (of course) the young girl is actually a young, scrawny, disaster of a woman--who is the heroine. Then it turns out that she's essentially raised herself. She's only come to stay with the hero ...more

This book was so much fun. Soooo much fun. The heroine is genuinely interesting, compelling, her "dark secret" is truly dark and really isn't kept a secret at all, from the reader at least, the tension between the two people who are supposed to end up together isn't only frustrating... Really good, for the genre.

Helena had not again ventured out. Though, she concluded as she poured herself a glass of wine, after three weeks of enforced inactivity, she would almost be willing to join the Christia

Um romance de época ao estilo habitual da Harlequin.
Algumas falhas em termos ortográficos, como repetição da mesma palavra, trocas de masculino pelo feminino ou plural pelo singular.

No geral temos a estória de uma rapariga vitima de maus tratos e que ao ver-se livre não tem grande ideia sobre o comportamento de uma dama em sociedade... Algumas aventuras e romance, servem para passar alguns momentos engraçados.

I absolutely loved this. It grabed me and pulled me in from the beginning and was fast paced,hard to put down. It made me cry, laugh and fall in love with the characters. This historical romance was mainly set in England and believable. I really want to read more of this author.

liked the way that the focus was always on the main character - also the story moved at a good pace with relevant instances from the heiress's past interspersed
