** spoiler alert ** This was wonderful! Surprise surprise, haha. Despite the heroine being beautiful in that... birdlike... ethereal way that instantly makes me feel like a hippopotamus, I really liked her, for the same reason the hero falls in love with her: she actually cares about other people and animals, and doesn't stop to think about the consequences when she sees injustice, just rushes in and saves the day (with Beaumaris' obliging help afterwards, of course). I get so tired of the well, helping ONE person isn't going to change the situation so why bother! attitude that's so fashionable now. This book and Fires of Pompeii came at just the right time for me, I think.
