The review --
Mystery and romance. I just love, love, love this book. In spite of himself, Warren finds himself watching over Ida, protecting her from a cad. The characters are delightful, the writing is a pleasure to read, and it's everything you could want in a historical romance. It's a delicious mix of romance, with a bit of mystery thrown in. And our hero Warren, is every bit the hero that you could want. This book is a stunningly good example of historical romance and I enjoyed it so much.
Yes, I thoroughly recommend this book. If you like historical romance, then you will want to read this book. Yes, it's that good.
