Could not finish this one. I do not believe that a 13-year old bastard son could, after being elevated from scrounging in the river for valuables all his childhood, talk like a duke within a month. There should have been, at the least, a different dialect. Also disturbing was when they found the twins in a terrible place, orphanage Brocklehurst Hall, Villiers forced the headmistress Mrs. Minchem away and told staff that they would be fired and they just left the children there!

This just became one of my favorite romance novels, ever. And believe me, I've read a lot of them. I recently stumbled upon Eloisa James and I'm so glad I did. This story was a little slow to start, but I think this over all actually worked to the story's advantage. The characters are wonderful, quirky and passionate. I would definitely recommend this book to a friend.

I enjoyed the writing and humor in this book very much, but felt the hero had been "toned down" from the way he appeared in the past. I also thought it took a little too long for him to notice very obvious and key facts about a certain other character.
