    The book was ok. I shared Eleanor's annoyance at the situation and at Huntley's and Aurora's apparent lack of interest in remedying the situation, but I was exasperated at her inability to deliver a well deserved scold to any of the offenders. Actually the only good set down Nell delivers seem to be to the servants (why pick on the weak?) when her sister is a delusional fool, brother is a young fool, her mother a lazy fool, her niece a really spoiled fool, and Huntley does nothing but switching [...]

    My second Amanda Scott regency romance. Not nearly as entertaining as The Dauntless Miss Wingrave, but still a solid regency. Balls, men in uniform, smugglers how can you go wrong?Still, for some reason, I found the characters a little unappealing. Not annoying just not appealing. Oh, well, even authors can have an off book, right? Still, I've only read two of her books, I can hardly judge.
