When publisher Phaedra Blair is released from confinement, she has Lord Elliot Rothwell to thank. But she soon learns Rothwell's ulterior motive - to prevent her from publishing a manuscript that would scandalize his family.

I really like Madeline Hunter, but this book isn't up to her usual writing standard. The story is boring.
Not sure why this book was rated so highly.
The narration is cold and haughty. It's difficult to distinguish the characters from the aloofness and unemotional tone of the narration. Mostly I feel like the characters are unlikable.
No. I will finish it because I paid for it, but I mostly use the book to fall asleep. Sounds rude, but it is absolutely true.
She is emotionless. Her narration causes the characters to come off as emotionless and unlikable. I cannot cheer for them or even like them. They seem to have no pathos.
No. I don't care about the objectives of the characters. The seduction scenes are so cold that I cannot believe that anything meaningful exists between the characters other than calculated manipulation.
I will not take another chance on this author or narrator because I cannot tell if the problem is with one, the other, or both.
The story was well done. I love the characters and their complicated lives and ideals. The romance was unusual and intriguing. Meredith writes engaging love scenes that are sensuous and romantic. It was a different type of love story with a satisfying end.
A story that has and old time way breaking away the barriers of the Man vs. Women. Both characters are very strong, and sometimes down right erritating to the point that you want to yell at them to "wake up". If you like the 1800's, a lesson in compromise and a great desire for romance - than this one is for you!
