Recommended for: no one
Read in May, 2009

Of the few Amanda Quick books I've read in the last month I liked this one more than the others (but that's not a great measurement since many of the others I decided to stop reading midway through). I'd say, overall, I actually did like this book - until the end. It goes a little something like this:

Her: Uh oh, love him.

Him: I want to have sex with her.

Her: I can never be with him, but I'll have sex with him.

Him: Damn, I really like having sex with her. I might even like her.

Her: Oh god, I love him so.

Him: (lightbulb goes on) Uh oh, I love her. But we can't be together.

Then something bad happens and they both somehow realize that they belong together forever and ever.

Him: I love you with my whole life. I don't know why I never told you before. I want to grow old with you and have your babies and be your duke/viscount/earl (whatever title he happened to be in this one).

Her: Swoon, and cut scene.

The only way I'd recommend any Amanda Quick novels is if you've made your way through all the other available romance novelists who write about Regency England.
