    I think I would consider thisof a mystery than a true romance There was a great story going on here, but most of the book was centered around a murder investigation I loved the premise of the highwayman, and Mark and Ally s characters, but I wish the author would have based the novelon their relationship Otherwise, it was a good read and kept you on the edge of your seat wondering who the killer was.

    All I have to say is that if I ever get kidnapped I hope it would turn out something like this book

    I love Heather Graham and this was my first time trying out Shannon Drake It was not a bad read but I do prefer the Graham novels better, perhaps due to being a different genre I did enjoy the characters that were added to this book such as Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and Queen Victoria Even though this was a fictional book it was nice to see that the author actually knew enough about the location and the time to be able to incorporate actual people into the story line.

    In this series each book was better than the last Unfortunately the entire series focuses on something I ve never been interested in Mystery I hate mystery novels I always have I enjoyed how independent each woman was, and how their men had to learn to adjust Mr Mark had to learn that you shouldn t marry someone just to control them That s messed up.

    Too obviously derivative of Sleeping Beauty a blond, beautiful secretly princess living in the forest in a charming cottage with three aunts Did not interest me, but I finished it hoping it d get better Blah.

    Unnecessary editing errors for example, how did Lord Wittburg end up in Lord Farrow s carriage p 251.
