Smite Turner is renowned for his single-minded devotion to his duty as a magistrate. But behind his relentless focus lies not only a determination to do what is right, but the haunting secrets of his past, secrets that he is determined to hide, even if it means keeping everyone else at arm's length. Until the day an irresistible woman shows up as a witness in his courtroom. Miranda Darling isn't in trouble, yet. But she's close enough that when Turner threatens her with imprisonment if she puts one foot wrong, she knows she should run in the other direction. And yet no matter how forbidding the man seems on the outside, she can't bring herself to leave. Instead, when he tries to push her away, she pushes right back, straight through his famous self-control, and into the heart of the passion that he has long hidden away.… (més)

It’s hard to complain when Courtney Milan builds a series around a group of men. At least, so far, I have no complaints. I didn’t like Ash & Margaret’s story as much as I loved these last two, but to be fair, by the point we’re reading about Smite, we already know a great deal about him. At least we have an idea of how tortured he is. Exacting, unforgiving, cold.

And we know Mark knew he needed, and gave him, a dog.

Smite is the difficult character. He’s also intense, straightforward, and loves animals. He listens as a magistrate to all the accused that others don’t or won’t. He’s uncompromising and has a very dark back story. He’s an exceptional compartmentalizer, but he’s also self-torturing, which is probably the most difficult thing about him.

Miranda, on the other hand, is scrappy and sunny--having lived her life raised by many loving adults but with no real stability. She does what she feels she has to, but she’s so aware of what people are saying and adept at reading them, it makes her, not surprisingly, a perfect match for him.

There are many moments in this book where one or the other could’ve sacrificed who or what they were, but it didn’t really happen. Smite is absolutely starved for companionship but remains isolated as a reminder of what he has to do to give back.

This book could’ve easily tipped into angst-making drahhhma. It didn’t, not really. It had tension, and heart squeezing moments and everything I want in a romance. What else it had was communication between the Turner brothers, making me wish I had more to read about. Their love and appreciation for each other along with their growth is the best thing about these. And it did it without being trite.

That’s a whole lot of nothing, honestly, but I guess it’s more words than my initial:

“Erp”

Smite Turner is a magistrate in Bristol. Due to his upbringing, he is one of the few judges who deal fairly with the poorer citizens. When Miranda Darling appears before him as a witness, his interest is caught. It doesn't take long before he and Miranda are involved.
I admit I've devoured this series. I had the first book on my reader for a while and finally got around to reading it. The writing and the characters drew me in and I've quickly gone through the next two books. The Turner brothers are interesting and the women they picked, while not always suitable to society, are perfect for each of them. They are strong and intelligent.
I do love the way Ms. Milan always gives her plot an extra twist, varying from the usual historical formulas. I never guess her endings (not the HEA, that's a given) but they're always believable and make perfect sense. Smite is so stoic and Miranda is a joyful person despite her living conditions; they make a perfect pair.
I'm sorry the series ended, but it has been a great read. ( )

Miranda Darling is a quick witted wig-maker with a talent for accents. Smite Turner is the cold and precise magistrate who notices she's lying during a court case. It turns out, their oddities match up very well.

I was amazed at how much I enjoyed this book. It's enjoyable for any book, but downright fantastic for an early Victorian romance. First off, there isn't a ball in sight--their love affair blossoms during conversations about the nature of justice, judgmental comments during bad productions of Shakespeare, and a bout of blackmail from a self-appointed King of Thieves. The characters felt unique and had depth; they have actual struggles and communicate about things beyond just their affection for each other. Both Smite and Miranda have gone through frightening and traumatic experiences, but although they're open about how those experiences inform their current circumstances (Smite in particular, the very definition of an Iron Woobie) they also appreciate the person those experiences has made them; they each refuse to be pitied or feel pitiful, but instead try to be stronger and more useful.

All in all, a book I'm really glad I picked up. ( )
