really liked it

As one who loves Regency Romance in the style of Georgette Heyer, I am happy to say that this author (DG Rampton) captures the spirit of Heyer in Artemesia. Full of great dialogue and beautiful descriptions of dress, stately homes, and balls, the storyline is not forgotten and is even more interesting than the ordinary RR storyline. Of course, there's a rake and a stuffy love interest, but the author was good about keeping it interesting by throwing in curveballs here and there that pique the reader who has read a lot of RR books. As stated before, this is in the style of Heyer, so there is no steamy stuff, just a lot of great writing and wit.
Recommended to anyone who loves Heyer and Regency era England. Enjoy!
