The book had quite a few good sections, and the love story itself was interesting and believable. When I started the book I was quite sceptical about the "teenage lovers meeting again 11 years later" aspect, but Beverley did that very convincingly. The characters of the heroine, the hero, and the hero's "secretary" (who gets his own book in Hazard) were well done and very appealing. The mad earl/torture chamber/dragon/crazy castle subplot was not nearly as well done, although it had its moments. But the smuggling subplot was a train wreck, especially the end of the book, which was supposed to bring the whole thing to a triumphant, climactic close but just confused the heck out of me and had no emotional impact at all. It almost seemed to be "tacked on" and written in a rush.
