I love how Evangeline Collins writes! I think I picked up this book at the 2010 RWA National Conference, but I’m not sure. I brought home at least two dozen books and accumulate hords of romance novels from friends, book stores, and library sales so it’s really hard to say exactly from whence it came. Maybe it was hidden in the depths of my goody bag from the Southern Lights Conference. However it arrived in my house, I’m thrilled to have lifted it from one of my TBR stacks.
The writing is suberb and the setting descriptions are so well executed I feel like I’m in the carriage with the h/h, or in the garden, or hot house, etc.
The emotions, actions, and reactions of the characters are perfect and plausible. I wish I could live in their world with them. The only thing that depresses me about this story is that it will come to an end. 😦 I’m trying to read it slow, to savor each and every page.
This story definitely gets a 5-star rating from me. 🙂
