This was a silly, poorly-written book. The main character was vain and shallow, and never redeemed herself. In fact, none of the characters developed or evolved in the book, and all of them bugged me as much in the end as in the beginning.

I was disappointed with the book. After reading the synopsis on the back I was expecting this book to be so captivating and intriguing but it was very lacking. Agreeing with what I read in other reviews, Jenny was VERY shallow and self-centered. It was all about her and how good she looked in whatever outfit or accessory she was wearing.

The first Regency era romance I ever read and I loved it! I picked it up from a bookstore shelf and then bought it because I was fascinated by the story premise and book jacket summary. Though I had never read a Regency historical, I decided to try the book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and have bought another of Caskie's books since.
I give this three stars because of Jenny. She is a fascinating character. Definitely not your typical Regency trashy romance novel heroine.

The writing in this book is somewhat awkward. Makes me think that this is one of the author's first. I have read some of her newer stuff and it is much better.
