Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from secrets of a scandalous heiress This was definitely a unique story. Romain brings new life to Bath & the London ton scene with her intricately crafted storyline. Romain has a subdued tone to her writing. It almost made me feel as if she were writing in pastels rather than vibrant colours. At times I felt as if the pace of the story lagged a bit, but never to the extent of losing interest in the story, simply as if it were meandering a little. The interactions between the characters were quite rigid at times, much of this having to do with the social norms of the time. The main characters flipped back and forth between said constraints and their desires until finally happening upon what works for them. I quite enjoyed Everett’s character. He’s quite different from your typical hero in this genre. I won’t say more to avoid spoilers, but he’s quite the individual. This novel had an enjoyable but unique storyline but there was something about the author’s writing style that kept me from being fully immersed in the story. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
