First of all, I read romance novels to escape, not for historical accuracy. I liked both the hero, heroine and their interactions in this story. The..Show More » narrator was great at giving distinctive voices for each character.
This is the second Happily Ever After book. I am just loving this series. I thought it was going to be a typical regency romance with the Beauty and t..Show More »he Beast storyline, but James sensei adds so much more too it.
For example, I really don't care for unnecessary long sex scenes and IMHO the author has put in just enough with fun twists. In this series they were actually romantic as well as sensual and fits the story perfectly.
In this book the heroine Linnet(beauty) is almost faultless while the hero Piers is Dr.House of his time. He is a brilliant doctor but has no bedside manners, has horrible temper, is generally cranky and has a bad leg. I love the banter and battle of the wits that ensues between them.
Unlike the other regency novels there are no rivals, balls and the ton in this story. Instead there are sick patients, arguments and healing in the harsh but beautiful setting in Wales.
I just loved this happily ever after for adults! More please
Absolutely. Have listened several times already. A great, funny, wonderfully fascinating romantic book, with the disapproving mother-of-the-duke, and ..Show More »all. The characters are great with multiple twists in the plot. In the beginning, and most of the way through, you just can't figure out how all the twists will come out. The ending part was a little slow, but it was necessary to bring all the pieces together. I'd give it 4 1/2 stars out of 5.
