The romance was sweet and a few of the side characters where delectably detestable. I detected hints of Heyer in the author's attention to historical detail and in wrapping the main characters into a convoluted scheme with a sense of humor in the unfolding drama.

I thought this was a cute story, good clean romance. It ends just like you think it should and is a quick easy read. Great for laying out on a beach chair :)

Saralee Etter loves to read, and always knew that writing was the only career for her. What could be better than to think up stories all day long? As a constant day-dreamer, it seemed like the ideal occupation.

Sadly, however, she couldn’t see a way to make a living writing the romantic and exciting stories that filled her head. Instead, she wrote other things: Newspaper articles, public relations
