    1. Not one of Thorpe's better novels. The heroine was too passive, the hero too nondescript, the scenario too reminiscent of Heyer, and the plot entirely too predictable. Yawn.


    2. Sweet little regency romance by Thorpe. Somewhat like a much watered down version of Georgette Heyer's Faro's Daughter.Nothing earth shattering happens. Not alot of conflict either. Just a quick afternoon read.
