I was disappointed in this book. I did read the series out of order, so perhaps if I'd read Someone to Love first, I would have liked it more. I felt the Camille character is very one-dimensional and we don't really get to know her. I liked the Joel character and the story line had promise, but even by the end I felt fairly ambivalent about Camille's outcome. The words say she loves Joel, but I don't really feel it. I'm disappointed because I've always loved Mary Balogh's books, but this one was a bit of a letdown.

I love when an author takes a character who was unsympathetic in a previous book of the series and gives them their own story, and Mary Balogh does that very successfully here with Camille Westcott. Camille is cold and prickly, and is also understandably struggling with a total reversal of fortune, having discovered in last year's Someone to Love that she's not the legitimate daughter of an earl but, actually, a bastard. This story of her finding her way in the world, and love in the process, was really moving and well-done. Balogh writes such well-developed characters, and this was no exception; I can't wait to read future installments in this series, because two books in, it's really really good.
