Overall, I liked the book. It got off to a good start and I instantly liked the hero, Thomas (heroine was a bit tetchy though.) He has an ignominious past as something akin to being the king of rakes in his "youth", (he's now a doddering old man in his 30's with graying hair.) Our heroine has the crazy notion to go to him for lessons on how to be seductive so she can catch a rich husband to bolster up her impoverished family. Of course she's beautiful and feisty and he falls for her immediately, but there's just all this other stuff going on all over the place and I found it exasperating at times for the hero and heroine were so dense about just saying what they really thought. Instead they were always playing games with each other. Then there is the inevitable "big misunderstanding" and then time goes by and we have an escape from Paris upon Napoleon's return from Elba! At times I thought this book had everything in it but the kitchen sink! Some loose ends and dangling characters as well, which I suspect we see more of in subsequent books. Still, parts were funny and entertaining, but needed a strong hand in concentrating more on the couple and less on the surrounding events around them. ( )
