This is a nice light hearted regency romance with a difference, in that the heroine is a strong willed irish lass. It's a sweet romance but with a good chemistry between the hero and heroine. Some attractive likeable characters and some nasty villains. A nice escapist light read.

Entertaining + Enjoyable

ENGAGING FROM THE FIRST CHAPTER. ALTHOUGH THE FINAL OUTCOME WAS PREDICTABLY, THE JOURNEY THERE WAS MOST ENJOYABLE. WOULD HAVE LIKE A FEW MORE CHAPTERS CONTINUING THE SAGA.

Not much for Romance novels...let's see how this goes.

After completing the book I can honestly say that Romance series novels are not for me. Too predictable. Guess I need a bit of mystery.
