Don't treat this as a usual regency romance. The dialogue isn't that good and there isn't any sexual tension between the main characters. Think of it as a light farce set in regency France and you'll enjoy it a lot more. Don't probe into who/what/when/where/why because the answers aren't provided, so you'll feel a bit letdown in the plot department. In the end, like Barbary's poor overworked manservant, Tibble, but you'll be glad its done and you get to go home.

Ever since I learned to read, I have loved books.

For almost as long, I have made up tales.

I’ve written horrible poetry, better short stories, adequate commercials, educational and industrial film narration, and very forgettable screenplays. Once I learned how to make a story last longer than a few paragraphs I moved on to novels, and there I stayed. I've written forty-three to date.
