Here's another one I wanted to love. Maybe it's because I read this before I read the first book in the series, but I just didn't like it. There were too many instances where the heroine acted and sounded too modern. I'm quite certain that ladies in the Regency period didn't come back with a whatever (or something similar - this is not intended as a direct quote, just the feeling of modernism I got while reading) when they were irked. It just didn't feel true to the period.

I also didn't like the heroine - AT ALL. I couldn't find anything remotely likable about her. She never seemed like she stayed true to character and the things she did were just...wrong-seeming for the way she'd been set up. She wasn't credible at all. I did like Daniel, however. A reformed rake is always my favorite hero. ( )
