Library Journal
Witty dialog and a sprightly pace raise this novel above a pedestrian plot common to many Regency and other romances--accomplished libertine loses wager that he will seduce one of society's noted prudes because he falls in love with her. However, this novel adheres more closely to the conventions than many recent additions to the Regency genre. Clever repartee and glimpses of intriguing depth in major characters and political events make one wish that the author had developed them further. Still, this is a highly diverting book from a veteran Regency author, and certain to appeal to Regency devotees. For more on the genre, and this reviewer, see Reviewer's File: WHEALLER, Cynthia, in this issue, p. 114.--Ed.-- Cynthia Whealler, Cary Memorial Lib., Lexington, Mass.
