  • Cracking, good read!

    I absolutely loved this novel and soon found myself in a quandary - I didn’t want to stop reading, but I really didn’t want it to end!! From the very beginning it drew me in. The writing was excellent and there was a well judged balance between description, conversation and narrative. The atmospheric, scene-setting enhanced an inventive, interesting and innovative storyline with unexpected twists which made it a real page turner. I loved the characters, who all had a well rounded depth - I really felt I knew them and could understand perfectly the events of their lives which had formed them. Felicity was an excellent heroine, who for all her difficult history, is a principled woman and she thoroughly deserved to get her man! (In fact, I quite often find the ‘romantic’ sections of books result in me cringing with embarrassment and quickly turning pages, but in this one, they were well written and added a definite ‘frisson’!) This was a hugely satisfying read - By the end everyone had got their just deserts (good or bad); I had read a cracking story, and, I also felt that I had learnt a little bit of social history. I can’t wait to read more from this author.

  • A Brilliant Regency Read

    I hadn’t read Sharon's previous book, but I loved this novel so much, it is definitely on my summer reading list. The characters were complex, intriguing and easy to care about. Edward, both handsome and moody has no time for the woman he believes tried to rob the family diamonds. But Felicity, good looking and intelligent is no shrinking violet. Edward might have banished her from London, but she is still doing what she does best in the North of England. Known as the Queen of Diamonds, she not only a gambler, but the best there is. A sort of female Robin Hood character. But, when there is an issue again with the family jewels, Edwards seeks her out to teach him the tricks of her trade, so he can play for them at a gambling party. This is one game he can’t afford to lose, but is there more to this woman than he first thought? This was a real page turner that kept me gripped to the end. A beautifully written book from unusual angle, I really enjoyed it.

  • Strong characters, not your typical Regency story!

    Felicity is a strong and independent woman at a time when that was unusual. No wonder she clashes with the strait laced Earl. Can they overcome their past history and sad upbringings to find something more than just a business partnership?

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A great historical novel

    The intriguing story of the relationship between Felicity and Edward is also the story of addiction, debt, poverty, despair and the fight to become free of these horrors. This is the reality of the glamorous world of 1800s. Wow, that sounds like a grim story but far from it. This story is a joyful telling of a romance which you hope will be fulfilled but every page brings you a different doubt. The pages turn quickly as you hope the outcome will be happy. Is it? Well, that I won't tell you, read and enjoy this book to the very end.

    Thanks for your feedback!
