A surprisingly delightful story that starts the prologue 20 years prior to the main story. We see Lady Chilton, Simone, packing up her three small children along with a locket for each of her daughters and for her son, the family ring of the Earls of Exmoor which belongs to the children's father. Simone's plan is to bring the children to her trusted un-named friend so she can get them safely out of Paris in the middle of the Revolution.

We meet Alexandra Ward, a wealthy American who runs the fa

Aburrida y falta de emoción son dos adjetivos fácilmente utilizables para designar esta novela. Una prosa lineal que se limita a narrarnos los hechos con cadencia monótona sin sumergirse prácticamente en ningún momento en la sicología o los sentimientos de los personajes, reina a sus anchas en cada página. Ni siquiera el argumento, que promete al principio momentos de intriga con un misterio interesante por resolver, consigue sacarnos del sopor de su narrativa.

Poco más voy a decir, excepto que e
...I'm not going to read the other two books, that's for sure. =__= ...But I wanted to know if John was still alive, so I "kind of" read the second book (skipping a lot of text) and I've read the third book too. =__=
After a series of books by Camp which I found a little disappointing, I thoroughly enjoyed this one. The unexpected heroine with her wildly independent streak crossing horns with a slightly uncommon hero (uncommon in his love of India etc) makes a good read. The suspense at the core of the tale - is she the grand-daughter or not - is fairly well-kept. At some point it seemed a bit "oh no, yet another attack"-ish, but at least it served to finally thaw the situation. A fun read, I now need to acq ...more
This is a fun read with an American, Alexandra Ward, arriving in London in 1811. Once she has met Lord Thorpe, both their lives become more exciting! Kidnappings, murder attempts, highwaymen and flights in hot air balloons. Just imagine what happens when they end up in bedrooms together! Lots of laughs for the reader along the way.
Im a big fan of Mrs. Camp since I read Suddenly and she absolutely never has disappointed me (and Ive read almost all of her books). I love her humor and the way she makes the romance and plot develop. I felt in love with the characters, especially Sebastian. There are a lot of action in this book and although I agree that some situations are highly improbable I dont mind because I read romance books to have fun and this book is a lot of fun! ...more

I wasn't quite sure if I would like this book at first. I felt it started a little slow, but there was something compelling that kept me turning the pages. While not one of my favorite novels by this author, I did enjoy the mystery and secrecy surrounding the heroine. I find I can't wait to find out what happened to her siblings and if they will ever reunite.
RHF book group is definitely refining my taste in HR...made it 40 pages or so into this book and had to stop. Too many anachronisms, even for "just" HR without the prowess of Grace Burrowes or Lisa Kleypas or Julia Quinn, never mind Stephanie Laurens.

So...onto the latest Grace Burrowes book.
I thought a surprising story. I was not expecting the suspect. I was expecting who Alexandra really was but was not expecting the person who was trying to destroy her. Also did not think that Lord Thorpe would move in.

Looking forward to the next story.

This book was my first for this author. The writing was pretty easy to read and I just fell in love with Thorpe and Alexandra. Their chemistry was pretty amazing. I'm looking forward to reading more from this fabulous author.
Good story. One of 3 books. Each book is about 3 children that were thought dead but were not. What happened to each child and how they found their grandmother. All 3 books were origional.
This was a perfect summer reading book. It was light, enjoyable, funny, and a little mysterious. Much better than I expected it to be.
