I almost gave this 3 stars for general Heyer affection, but my fingers seemed to think 2 stars was more appropriate.

I'd heard such good things about this, but at their first meeting, the hero GRABS THE HEROINE AND KISSES HER and yeah. Never got past that. They DID have amusing banter at times, but I didn't think they even shared enough page time, even without the bad beginning.

And it seemed different from a normal Heyer in other ways, too. A bit more serious, I guess. And no real fun side stories. And the family relationships weren't as fun as usual either.

All of that said, I do believe I'm in the minority among Heyer fans for not liking this.
