I am not typically a fan of Regency Romance but this seemed like it would be a lighthearted read with a clever protagonist. The blurb set the story up nicely and I imagined it would be more of a satirical look at what happens with ruined reputations. It was not satirical in nature at all.
The story starts out strong. The plot is well thought out and the characters are easy to distinguish. While I realize this is fiction and with that truths can be twisted and reformed; there was just something about this book that seemed to contradict itself as the story moved forward.
I always admire an author who can put words to paper and follow a thought long enough to create a whole story (or series in this case). This book just wasn’t my cup of tea.
