it was amazing
Read in December, 2008

Even though I grew up on Heyers and old Harlequins, I've largely lost interest in romance novels (of the het variety, that is) the past few years. Even the well-written ones have left me feeling pretty bored. Which is a little depressing when you practically cut your eyeteeth on the things. I missed enjoying romance novels. I wanted to like them; I just...didn't.

Still, I kept trying, and it did indeed pay off with The Edge of Impropriety. What a delightful, joyous read! Where other novels have seemed stiff, contrived, and pat, this one was joyous and full of life. The characters (primary, secondary, and otherwise) were beautifully drawn, and the story was perfectly plotted and paced. It's the book I was waiting for and didn't even know it. I recommend it wholeheartedly to anyone who is a fan of the genre and, even more so, to anyone who used to be a fan and who wants to find their way back.

I can't wait to catch up on the author's backlist!
