Overall, this was a very enjoyable read. I don’t often read historicals involving a Duke yet set in the Americas, so this was a refreshing change from the same old same old in historicals of the time period. Georgia’s honorable nature and Robinson’s somewhat sketchy past, as well as his amnesia, made for all sorts of interesting plot twists, and some lovely sexual tension.
The story got wonderfully angsty once Robinson began to recover his memory, and it looked as though their relationship was truly doomed, but Georgia’s quick thinking makes even the impossible possible.
The only thing that kept this one from being a 4.5 or even 5-star read was the ending. While their relationship was fairly settled, it still seemed incredibly abrupt, as it seemed to have set things up for her to make him beg and crawl, as well as expound on what happened during the rest of the Season. I quite literally turned the last page then had to double check to make sure my Kindle file wasn’t missing part of the book.
Overall, however, this was a quite enjoyable read. I loved both Robinson and Georgia, and everything they went through to be together, and I can’t wait to read more of the series to find out what actually happened with his uncle.
