I have to admit that I actually enjoyed this book. I’ve been reading heavier material lately and really needed a break. I wanted something that was fun and easy to read with a minimum of effort. In short, I wanted to be mindlessly entertained. And, to a degree, I was. However, I must admit that I never did figure out who the villain was until it was revealed at the end of the book! (Truth be told, I am ashamed to admit this!)

As all of my readers know, I happen to enjoy this particular time perio

Katherine Sutcliff & Lord Benjamin Sinclair
Upon her dad's death, Kate inherited his company but can't publicly run it because she's a woman (set in early 1800's) so she goes to London for the season to find a husband. Ben is brother's best friend who's a vagabond sailor. She's kidnapped twice and he saves her but her reputation is ruined.
"When he held her in his arms, her common sense vanished..." (60) describes this book, and many other in its genre, to a T at the moment.

An impressive writing style for a Mills and Boon novel. All over top stuff! I hope that my prose will one day be as well crafted as this was.
Enjoyable if fluffy romance.
But if read in the wrong mood it would be possilbe to be overcome with an urge to kick both or hero & heroine for wanton idiocy.
it was a typical romance novel,but i enjoyed its perfect for when you're in the mood for something romantic

Further proof that I hate romances, but it was intriguing to find out who was stalking her.
