This is apparently Lisa Kleypas' favorite of all the heroes she has written. While I can't go so far as to say I prefer him over Sebasian from 'Devil in Winter' (swoon!), I do understand the appeal. Derek Craven is fascinating -- he's risen from nothing, built a gambling empire, even managed to hide his cockney accent. I do wish the heroine had been sliiiiiiightly more well-drawn, but she's compelling enough in her own way, albeit a bit of a romance trope, and watching them fall in love is extremely satisfying, even if the end result feels slightly inevitable? (I know it's a romance novel, but still.) All in all, an extremely readable and enjoyable Regency, so long as you don't think too hard about it.

I just hate this idea of a doe-eyed, intelligent (b/c spectacles and poor fashion sense must mean she's smart, right?), innocent and completely oblivious heroine getting together with the dark, broody hero. Oh, but this hero is special b/c he has a heart of gold who can't let a lady be inconvenienced. But the rest of woman (and man) kind is fair deal, I guess? I mean it's not like he had to use and abuse, and go about doing shady things to rise to the top, eh?

Good historical romance. The storyline pulls you in from the first few pages. A great page turner!
