This is one of those reads where the author's voice made me want to overlook its flaws. Looking at the book now, it's nothing particularly fresh and/or original. She even tosses in a "He wore his hair longer than was currently fashionable," which, now that I've pointed this out, you will notice is in nearly every historical romance ever. While I was reading it, however, I didn't want to put the damn thing down. Something about the characters had me dying to know what happened next. I'd call this somewhere between a three and a four, since the ending is way too neat, but I'll round up.
