This was mostly a really enjoyable book, but the entrance of cartoon like baddies stretched credulity.
Viscount Ian somebody attends a ball in London to scope out his enemy, a woman he believes is responsible for the deaths of his brother and father. Naturally sparks fly because she is gorgeous, but a socially shunned half gypsy half noblewoman.
So far so good. It was a great first third, then unbelievable baddies appeared and the heroine turned into a Regency Lara Croft. I totally approve of gutsy heroines, but the drama was not always believable. This impaired my enjoyment of an otherwise great book. I did enjoy the Romani scenes though and the fact that the heroine's maid got her own story.
Despite minor annoyances I read to the end, riveted, so I do recommend this book. For those who like to be warned there are a few highly charged sexual scenes.
