At the beginning of this book I was ready to consider Blake a horrible person. I sided with Iverley and was horrified that the quirky Minerva would be stuck with him.

But I changed my mind, Blake is handsome, arrogant and the son of a duke but beneath all that he is a very vulnerable man. He has dyslexia, is almost unable to read and his writing is atrocious, except for his signature. And I felt myself melting in sympathy for him.

Minerva was harsh and unyielding towards Blake at first, but you can understand it because her whole future's been derailed. She softens to Blake when he shows himself to be quite intelligent in actual fact.

The best scene in the book though, is at the end. (view spoiler)
