Who would have thought that this little 200 page book without descriptive love scenes could have packed so much un-pc-ness! First off, the overbearing hero slaps the heroine across the face for putting herself in danger, then he proceeds to cheat on her because she turned him away from her bed and he was angry with her.

The first part of this book had me glued to the pages, but the story would have been better if there was a little more groveling by the hero or heroine when the hero came back fro

Young lovers quarrel and part. The heroine marries another, to prevent her unborn child from being a bastard. When her husband dies and her first love returns, she marries him, but his jealousy threatens to destroy their happiness. There are a lot of misunderstandings, which are resolved too easily, and one wonders if the main characters will ever grow up. Despite that, it's an interesting read.
Frances and Ian are childhood sweethearts - Frances is an amazingly beautiful English lass over whom all the eligible London gents fall madly in love. She's prim and proper and perfect.

There are elements of the Joan Wolf that I love in this book but it's pretty rough. The h/h are so strong and vivid -- I wish they hadn't been separated for so long. If you have to read every Wolf she ever wrote, then you'll want to read this but just for a casual reader, um, no.
I have been hunting Joan Wolf books for 20+ years and I finally found this one. The characters appear in several other novels by Joan Wolf. this is the only Joan Wolf book where I felt like the hero and heroine needed a good slap. even then the characters were real. and her books never feel like formulas.
I read this when I was in middle school and just re-read it. I liked it all right, but there were some things that bothered me.

For one thing, everyone in the world is in love with the heroine, Frances. That kind of got old to hear about after a while. It also got old to hear about how Ian, the hero, filled doorways with his presence.

This book was also a bit odd in that the hero's cousin, Douglas, had many chapters in which his was the main POV. Until the end I was rather pulling for Douglas to
irritating hero and heroine was no better.
