This was a quick read. It had quite a few really funny moments. It was different from Ashley March's other books because I would say it was more of a light read. I tend to like the more angsty books, but I did enjoy this often times steamy and fun read. Ashley March is one of my favorite authors she never lets me down.

Would have given 5 stars, but she introduced characters that I thought for sure would be her next book, and then I find out she is writing under a different name with no clear plans to follow through with the series she so obviously set the beginnings for in this book and that's just irritating.

I had a tough time warming up to Willa, the heroine in this Victorian romance, though I liked her very much at first when we first meet her. But then she began to bug me, though I liked the hero Alex very much. Still, I felt the story was disjointed as if some of the scenes were unfinished. The ending was rushed and in need of more development towards how Alex and Willa realized their love for each other. A disappointiment compared to her last book, Romancing the Countess, which was great.

I don't know if it's just because I seem to be in a reading funk lately, but I couldn't connect with the characters in this book. Granted, there was a different story line regarding fabric dye, which was intriguing, and it started out with a mysterious masquerade, but I was bored with the family and their grumbling, and whereas I thought perhaps the book was really opening up with a hearse, it was just the hero's family's inability to compromise while he was trying to better their life. That's w ...more

Its been a minute since i read this. What i remember is that overall I enjoyed it, the first part of the book is easy to recall but she ended up losing me. I loved the heroines backatory. Sometimes I find myself thinking there are little additions or changes to the plot, especially character motivation, that would make a big difference in my enjoyment of this authors' stories. Her tone and sense of voice are quite good however.

I always love AM books, but not this one. Although I finished it, I couldn't get into it. I nearly gave up, but ploughed on. It was o.k., but no pleasure in reading it. Such a shame, I really wanted to love it. I didn't like the dye thing at all.

A quick read. Alex and Willa had some cute sparring scenes. The whole dye plot did feel rather contrived and over the top. Kinda lost interest with the whole story right before the end.
