My Rating: 3 1/2 out of a 5

My Review:

I really enjoyed seeing into the Smythe-Smith family.  Honoria and Marcus have a unique sense of humor that I like and you can actually see that their loves is one grown from years of friendship.  There wasn't a real mystery to the plot but Marcus comes by a serious injury and through that the couple are linked.  The writing is superb but I didn't expect less being a Julia Quinn book.  So all in all a decent book.
