I don't always need to read about dukes and duchesses waltzing off into an HEA sunset so I admire that this book features a courtesan and a non-titled hero. It was however, a little too grim for my tastes. While reading it, I felt so bad for the H/h and I began to dread turning the page because I knew there was going to be more bad news heaped upon them until the very end. Maybe that's why I didn't get caught up in the romantic or sexual tension and I found myself relieved when I finally got to the epilogue.

Even though this isn't a keeper or re-read for me, the writing is still terrific and I'm not sorry I read it. If you're looking for a different style of historical romance then I would recommend this one.
