really liked it
bookshelves: 2007, instant-gratification
Recommended for: romantics and classics buffs, specifically ancient greek plays
Read in November, 2007

There was a surprisingly sedentary plot (nobody dies or narrowly escapes death) which actually makes it even *more* romantic because...aren't we all very familiar with the mundane? The back cover states that this is a "witty, passionate story of a woman's seduction, and a gentleman's surrender," which readers of this genre know NEVER happens. That being said, she is relatively forward and arguably an unwitting seducer, which is close. They have lots of fun banter and the supporting cast is superb.

There is a short story attached to the end (a rather long one, for the record) that is less good but still a nice read. My main complaint with that was that the author did not reveal the complexities of her plot in a very convincing manner, leaving the reader more confused than touched--although I was inextricably weepy for *both* of her stories. That I'm just going to chalk up to feminine hysterics. ;)
