★★★★½ Recently re-read this one as a “buddy read.” While I loved the whole “seeing her across a crowded ballroom” thing, it didn't work for some of my fellow GRs “buddy readers.” It did for me; I thought that night was magical.

I did think Benedict was a bit of a jerk about the mistress stuff, but it was realistic for the era. I was thinking of knocking this down a star because of that, but this is such a great series.

Plus, Ms. Quinn did a wonderful job on a “Cinderella” retelling. I loved to hate Sophie’s step-mother, Araminta; she really pushed my buttons. (Isn’t it interesting how some villains push your buttons more than others?) And the ending was fun.

Still, The Viscount Who Loved Me is my favorite, so far.
