This was enjoyable. I did feel a bit lost here or there due to the fact that I hadn't read the first one. Otherwise, not bad.


Apparently, I liked it better the second time around. I don't know what it says about the book or about me that I just discovered that I actually had read it in 2011 and had absolutely no memory of it throughout my second reading.

Finished 05.11.2011 and 02.10.2014.

I really enjoyed this, I couldn't put it down. I loved Elizabeth, she and Peter were made for each other. My only negative is that Elizabeth's angst and self-doubt did come across as too over-wrought to be really believable at times. I really like the way all three books in this trilogy are occurring parallel to each other. I can't wait for the last book.

Is this a first book? This feels like a first book. Transistions and backstory are very poorly done, characterization is minimal and unbelivable. I didn't read the first book, and won't go looking for it based on the writing in this one.

I don't know what it is but every time I start to read one of Gayle Callen's books I cannot seem to be able to put it down. THEY ARE GREAT!

The second in the series, and I really enjoyed it as much as the first. Looking forward to the reading more from Callen.

Good, sexy. The set-up was a little unbelievable. Now I have to get the rest in the series.

Awalnya agak membingungkan karena saya blm membaca dua buku sebelumnya.. atau salah satu dari dua buku seri ini. Tapi, setelah saya memutuskan untuk nggak terlalu memikirkan hubungannya dg dua tokoh lain di buku lainnya, ceritanya cukup menyenangkan.

Yah, walaupun karakternya begitu-begitu aja. Alkisah, Lady Elizabeth ketahuan punya lukisan telanjang yg dipajang di klub gentleman. Masih belum jelas ini lukisan telanjangnya Elizabeth atau dua sepupunya, ga nyambung ih saya bacanya, malah bingung.

This was another fast paced Callen book. I liked the simplicity of the characters, the sweetness of the romance. Overall a good book. nothing super exciting but worth reading. more of a 3.5 rating

Finished it but slow read.

I didn't like the female characters at all. Elizabeth was just ugh, Mary Ann I just wanted to smack. Peter could've been a great character. usually Callen could do a great book , but what happened ? The plot seemed a bit hurried and not convincing. The only reason I.finished reading it wad because I bought the book. Sorry Callen, but I'm hoping for Leo's and Susannah's story is better, it can't get much worse than this.

I didn't care for this book from the beginning, mainly because of the initial interaction between the MCs. I felt that there was too much conflict and not enough to recommend Elizabeth or Peter. For the writing style alone, I choose not to finish the book :(

I definetly felt like you need to have read the other books in this series to understand what is going on. Plus the characters never really came alive for me.
Feb 12, 2011 Eve rated it liked it
I enjoyed wasn't really a great read per se, but I liked both their characters and the fact that he was a commoner gave it a bit of a different edge.
Jan 11, 2011 Elle rated it liked it
I think this book must be late in a series. There's a lot of stuff that's talked about in the story as if the reader must already know.
Feb 13, 2015 Monica rated it liked it
I loved this book but I felt the end was a little abrupt. Still give callen props for writing such awesome books!

The first one grabbed my interest better than this one. I'll provide a better review at a later date.

Ok book. It didn't hold my interest as much as other books of hers that I have read but it was enjoyable.

...but what about Susanna....hopefully there is a third book to this series to finish the story.
Not nearly as good as the first book in the series.
