I really enjoyed Nobody's Angel, but it wasn't one of my favorite Karen Robards novel.

The story line and plot were creative and interesting ... A Marquis betrayed who ended up as a bound servant to a preacher's family in the Carolinas, but some of the characters fell a little flat. I think the book has a lot of potential, and was certainly enjoyable to read, but it could have been so much more.

Susannah's character was a bit over the top in her criticism and anger. Ian was a bit too much of a rake at times. Susannah's father was excellently portrayed. But the book lacked clarity on Ian's past and his family. It moved too fast over parts that deserved more time. There were a bit too many characters vying for attention, that not enough was said about some of the main ones - like Soerena - was her role in the story even necessary?

However, the story was enjoyable and many parts made me laugh - like Ian's attempt at farm work, peeling turnips, running from chickens and plowing.

I enjoyed the romance, and I loved the ending, predictable as it was. I thought it was a good book, but it left me feeling like something was missing. I feel like this story was better done in the Banning Sister trilogy which the sisters in this book remind me of.

Overall, I recommend it. It's an enjoyable book, a quick read, funny, and clever. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0440208289, Paperback)

In Carolina Colony, the community admired Susannah Redmon, plain eldest daughter of the preacher. Her herbal healing skills made her an angel of mercy, her determination held together the family's farm, and her strong will always got her what she wanted--even the buying of a man.  But no suitor had ever courted her...

Ian Connelly, Marquis of Derne, had been betrayed, branded a criminal, and beaten.  Still defiant, he had been indentured and transported to the Colonies, where a bossy, primly proper woman had bought him!  But he alone saw the strength of her character, the gold in her tawny hair, and, in her eyes, the fire of her long-hidden desire...

Now Susannah "owned" this magnificently handsome rogue, but it was his passion that could free her imprisoned, lonely heart.  From the frontier South to society London or even to hell itself, with her body she would worship him and with her soul she would love him, for she was...Nobody's Angel.
