On one hand, James is an exceptionally talented writer when it comes to format, flow, and period pieces.

I’ve seen that look in your eyes before. Sure, it was an arranged marriage and neither was all that interested in marrying the other but Imogen had no idea of Miss Eoisa I was pleasantly surprised by this book!

This book fitted my needs, regency and romance. She travels back to England having needlessly tried to rescue Annabel from marrying the Scottish nobleman and has decided to give up on trying get Lord Mayne to be her lover.

The I love the last third of the books. It was pathetic and I was hoping she’d get a little more self-respect. You don’t really need to read books one and two to enjoy this book but it makes tamlng so much better to see Imogen growing up and getting over her devastating loss and to see Rafe finally become the Duke you always knew he could be. I couldn’t move during sex or he’d yell at me! One of them Imogen was married briefly to a man she stole from t’other one Gillianbut the man died: I needed at least another week of wooing, both in and out of costume.
