  • I thoroughly enjoyed this book

    In this first book of the series, Ms Sande has once again piqued my interest in how the rest of the books would unravel. There were, in fact, two stories intertwined, both romantic, but the story between Isabella and Octavius progressed a little more slowly than that of David and Clarinda. The book is well written with humour and some sadness and there is also a mystery to be solved. After having witnessed the death of her mother, Isabella rides through the night to David Fitzwillim on her mother's instructions, to take refuge in his brothel. Not being the kind of place a lady of quality should be hiding out in, he calls in Octavius to assist him in secreting Isabella away. One has to have sympathy for Octavius as the high spirited, opinionated young lady upends his home, the servants, the stables and Octavius himself. However, despite rattling the butler's sense of proprietary, with time Isabella wins the whole household over and Octavius reconsiders his vow to his late wife. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the romance that played out between the young girl and the more mature Duke, as well as the ancillary characters. I received a copy of this book as a gift and this is my honest and voluntary review.

  • Could not put this down

    I was tied between wanting to know how the story would end but also wanting this delightful story to go on forever. Thoroughly enjoyed this book, was never distracted enough to lose my place and keep reading same paragraph over and over, as in the case of some of the novels I read. Praise to the author for keeping me riveted,

  • Just Ok

    A sweet read but far too much talk of horses. I wish Isabella had more than one interest.
