I liked this book but Jane Feather come on. She can do better. The thing that pissed me off was the age gap between Chloe and Hugo. Seriously and the guy used to love her mother! And Chloe is just too arghh.. there's something about her character in the book that pissed me off!

this was a good read. however, i dislike when the heroine is willfully stubborn. of course, when she doesn't listen, she gets into trouble. the guardian was kind of stodgy and "old". he was in his mid thirties, but he was definitely not as virile as most romantic heroes in that age group.

I am torn between being repulsed at the whole IDEA of their relationship since he had a thing-even if it wasn't sexual-with her MOTHER and ROFLMAO. This book is truly funny. More than a little creepy, too.
I stopped reading this book the moment I realized that the hero was in love with the heroine's mother at one time! YUCK!!!!

I read it when I was only 20, and the heroine of the book is 17 years old, and that just sounds to be perfect I know, but why did I feel disturbed?! let me tell you..
A teenager in my age -then- no matter what she'd be craving romance, she wouldn't feel ok about an adult who is also an authority getting emotional benefits from and sleeping with a 17-years-old girl! No, not for reasonable people at any age.. The script was moving a bit slowly, getting boring from the middle to the end. I don't reg

To escape the demons of his past, Hugo Latimer has been drowning his sorrows for more than a decade. When he arrives at his much neglected estate one day, it's to find a coach, a lot of luggage, a strange and diverse collection of animals, and a glowing young woman who looks like a more perfect version of Elizabeth, the love he's been trying to forget. Had Hugo bothered to read his mail over the last year or so, this might not have been unexpected. Seems his former love, on learning of her immin ...more

Estuvo bien... pero podría haber sido mejor. Tal vez la diferencia de edad fue demasiada, si ella hubiera tenido 19, o el 28, o así, creo que habria sido diferente. No está mal si no hay otra cosa para leer, pero no es de esos libros que voy a re-leer varias veces como me ha sucedido con otros :)

I read this book probably 3 years ago but I'm constantly thinking about it. So when I caught myself thinking about it this last time I picked it back up to reread. One of my absolutely favorite historical romances. The characters are so real and easy to identify with.

The book was well written and the passion between H and h was nicely transfered to the reader, but I couldn't rate this book higher because I think I have had enough of historical romances that simply transfer our own era and customs back to a previous century. I believe that it would be highly impossible for a 17 year old well brought up miss of the Regency era to be so casual about having "no strings" sex with her ward, no matter how much she thought she loved him...

Interesting story. I did not like the ending. I felt it was either rushed or showed her weakness to just accept his past. I'm not from those times, so maybe it is in period but I didn't like it. I'm looking forward to more in this series.
There were parts of this book that I really liked, but the fact that Hugo was in love with Chloe's mother for most of his life outweighed the good points for me.. and he called her "my child" so many times.. it just really icked me out.

why did i go and borrow a steamy romance novel, from the adult section no less? don't ask me. i was walking up and down shelves pulling out books at random. i love the library's holiday 2x thing.

Chloe is not to my taste. EVERYone loves her, yadda yadda yadda. And I don't think anyone of that era would be so uncaring of her "virtue."
Liked it at first, petered out towards the end. The sex was well written, but the over dramatic SECRETS were quite on my nerves.

Overall I liked the book. There were some slow parts, but I did like the characters created.
