Guhrke astutely maneuvers two seemingly mismatched characters to look beyond their own preconceived truths to better understand themselves so they can truly love each other. A charming, insightful historical romance.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
Engaging prose, witty barbs, and sigh-worthy sensuality make this humorous Victorian charmer an excellent addition to Guhrke's series and a most diverting read.-- "Library Journal (starred review)"

The banter between the hero, Rex, and the heroine, Carla, is entertaining. I thought the story line was good. I liked the way the author took a lot of time building and evolving both characters. There were no other plots within to distract. Not a lot of other characters to keep track of. No mysteries to uncover. The story line focused on the two. This is the unfolding of a romance between two people who couldn't be more different. Although, they do happen to share the impact of embarrassment and hurt caused by certain extremely troublesome family members I liked how the author progressively unveils Rex' and Carla's very diverse beliefs on morality, love and marriage. The dialogue between the two, although heated at times, strives to be amicable. The need for transparency from each other; drawing out the most sensitive and intimate of feelings begins to change them both for the better.
Then there are the good ole' predictable "smutty" moments so typical of romance novels. The redundant inner thoughts of Rex, dying to touch Carla, every which way, for me, became tiresome. Not to mention the tightening of his pants - quite frequently!! Then there are the two graphic sex scenes. I know there is a huge audience for this, however, all this "fluff" is not needed. A talented writer, such as this author, can evoke feelings of passion without the use of explicit sexual contents. I have come across some really good ones! Just saying ... I would have given 4 stars. I will say though that at the very least, this author managed to keep out crude words, and kept sex scenes to a minimum. Kudos!
Otherwise, the story kept my interest. I liked that Carla, although overprotected all of her young life, is a strong woman. She has a backbone. Her convictions about morality and true love are unmovable. Rex, a cynic when it comes to love and marriage is well known for his "rakish" ways, and is brutally honest about it. Deep down, however, it is not hard to quickly discover that he has the qualities of a deeply caring person.
