Absolutely wonderfully adorable! I fell in love with Lord Rule almost at first sight. He was perfect. Horry, too, was quite sweet towards the end. Quite an exciting and cute book. Positively delightful!

Loved it. Heroine has amazing eyebrows and a stammer. She's absolutely adorable!

A delectable read I devoured over the course of two days, Horatia and Lord Rule are both charming characters and the plot is quite a bit more action packed than other Heyers I've read. The novel also varies from the norm in that it begins with a marriage rather than ending with one. With a fun cast of supporting characters (my personal favourite being Horatia's gambling and drink-prone brother, Pelham) the novel was just the light and fast read I needed.
