I enjoyed this story. Regency romances are some of my favorite and the writing of this one is great. The one thing that I had a hard time with was the many sexual references. This is supposed to be a "clean" romance and it basically is, but the amount of sexual references left me blushing. I did like the characters and the story line was highly exciting.
I was able to borrow this one from my local library.
