I have quite enjoyed Tessa Dare's historical romances previously, and I'm thankful I read those first. If this had been my introduction to her work I likely would have shied away from further novels by her. I don't know if this was an early manuscript, or a less experienced editor, or what, but it was significantly worse in my opinion. Almost like elaborate fan fiction inspired by her other work. Up until near the end I was expecting to give this 2 stars actually (and I know I've given at least one of her previous books 5!). The characters weren't as dimensional and leaned heavier on tropes (even for the genre =P) the woman is headstrong but inexperienced, the man is all macho manliness. Battle of the sexes and all that... yadda, yadda. It also seemed to be missing most of the 'historical' angle of a historical romance. The characters embraced very few of the social tenets of the time. At one point a community of women discover that an unmarried, gently bred woman has been having physical liaisons with a man, and instead of judgement or concern for what would have been considered a highly scandalous, ruined, woman likely to bring dishonor to her family and be shunned from society, they practically break out in that "tell me more, tell me more" song from Grease! It just wouldn't even be on the spectrum of potential reactions for the time! Situations like that would have been at least a little bit more conceivable if it were passed as a modern-day story of some slightly old-fashioned small coastal town. But then I just wouldn't have bothered with it to begin with, had that been the case. I'll perhaps try the next novella novel (it appears the novellas are all rated below this one and all the rest of the novels rated significantly higher) and see how that goes before determining whether or not to ignore this series. Hopefully, they improve as they go, or this was just a poor anomaly or something. I want to like them. ( )

While the romance was believable, the conflict wasn't. This could have been a novella. I'm more interested to read Thorne and Payne's stories. ( )

I was certain this was gonna be a 4 for me... and then Bram decided he was going to marry Susanna so... yeah I fell in love just a bit. ( )

Comment: whatsmackedsaid's review below is absolutely right - this would have got 4 stars from me if the start had more punch and didn't dither around. By the end I had enjoyed it thoroughly. Tessa Dare and her fellow contemporary regency romance writers never cease to amaze me with their witty repartee between the characters, and fresh plot twists they drop their characters into. ( )

I found the first act boring, but it picked up a good deal after the first third or so. ( )
