Very good and I highly recommend it.

First off I want to disagree with the statement in the above review that the phrases "watering pot" and "leg shackled" can appear in other than Regency novels. That's just stupid. I was also stymied by the one review that said there was too much sexual content, like that's even a thing. Too much sexual content. That's like too much chocolate. Sigh. But mostly, there is another review on here that almost made me skip this book, because it questioned why such an awesome hero should like an annoying twit etc. I got the impression from this that the heroine is a too stupid to live type, or prickly with no good reason. Not so, and the relationship made perfect sense to me. The villain, well that was a stretch but not too big.
And now the review. So here's Ashley, friend of May from Jude's Law. She keeps running into this hottie millionaire who seems to be interested in her. Coming from poverty, having been bullied and never feeling good enough, she questions his interest. He doesn't see these things, and in fact having come from wealth, takes all that nonsense for granted and is looking for someone real. Later on we find out more about him that doesn't fit with the usual corporate shark typecasting. Ashley is fighting not to be consumed by this relationship, because her goals are important to her and she needs to believe that she can overcome her beginnings and accomplish something on her own merit. Secret enemies and the drama thereof ensues, and the story progresses very nicely. Without spoilers, its worth noting that Lori resolves one of the thinly disguised secrets that was ought over from the first book, but I was disappointed that May was not a part of the discovery. Maybe we can imagine she will be now. We know there's no third book, but there's plenty of room for it. I'd like to see a story about Tim, or Denny.
