I picked this up during a free promotion and thought it was a well done regency novel. Fiona has a hard time seeing herself as a good person and tries hard to make amends when her temper gets in the way. I have not read the first in the series, but this worked as a stand-alone and I didn't feel like I was missing anything. It was very clean and romantic, with some devious characters throwing problems in the way of the protagonist. I liked all the trickery, but I didn't think everyone needed to be redeemed. Regardless, l liked that all the characters had shades of good and evil that colored their actions. A definite recommend. $1.99 or free to borrow with your kindle.
