    A tender, light-hearted romance

    It took me a while to really get into this book. There’s a lot of work that’s gone into setting the stage for everything that takes place during this story. From the plight of the Throgmortons to the history of the Cavanaughs to the ‘corporate’ espionage that makes up the intrigue we’ve come to expect from a Stephanie Laurens title, there’s quite a lot to set up for. I enjoyed this book, though to me, it didn’t really get rolling until I was about half way into it. A great deal of time was spent focusing on the details of the invention that I don’t think needed to be that detailed. Most of us reading this book aren’t going to appreciate the nuances of the different valves and pistons and drive shafts involved in assembling it. I especially enjoyed watching the relationship between Rand and Felicia develop. Obviously, there was instant attraction between the pair, but the relationship itself was a sweet, slow progression that felt very organic. I loved that Felicia was bright, intelligent, and capable, but wasn’t the usual sort of ‘managing female’ that often populates regency fiction. Rand, while being scarred by past events in his family, was still open to possibilities. He doesn’t have any great personal demons to vanquish which made this a tender, light-hearted romance. I adored the ending and look forward to seeing how Kit’s story plays out. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book through NetGalley.

    Too much technical focus

    Romance and character development take a back seat to too much technical and background information. I loved this author’s earlier novels and while this story was at times promising , it was often boring and slow moving.
