Loved this fun read. There are no vampires, werewolves or mechanical devices. The government still stands and history is exactly as we have learned it. There is not one kiss. Now that you have been warned I still say that this is a great story; a sweet story that is set at a time where woman are just beginning to question the parameters that society has set for them about what is proper and what isn't. In much the same vein as I Captured the Castle and Emma, it makes you feel good and I don't think there is anything wrong with that :)

Kelly Ordered this from Scholastic.

Layne Is that in this month? Missed that one.

Kelly In the Teen RC catalog, top of page 3. :)

Layne I didn't get that order form, but I went and looked in the one we got and it's there right above 'Ruby Red'. I think I didn't give it much of a look because the one sentence blurb makes it sound like Harlequin Romance. I order 'Legend', 'Ruby Red' & 'Deadly' today.

Kelly Today? Did you mention yesterday that you were ordering Legend? Because I ordered that one today, too. Bummer.

Layne I did tell you I was ordering Legend. Oh well.
