I am just going to jot a few lines down right now about this story and will come back later to write a more detailed review. I will sum this story up by saying "I loved it!" This is the BEST Eloisa James book I have read and it had everything I love in a story. The witty banter between Linnet and Piers was terrific and the love story that unfolded kept me reading late at night. I did not expect the twist at the end with Linnet's illness and I think that gave this story a lot of depth. The biggest problem I have right now is not knowing what to read next! How do I "top" a book like this one? I would recommend this to all of my goodreads friends who like reading historical romances because this one definitely delivers!!!
