Before I get into my review, here's the synopsis from Goodreads:


Even infamous duelist and poet Vaughn Everard has qualms about dragging an innocent lady into his quest for revenge. But Imogene Devary is the daughter of the man suspected of murdering Vaughn's uncle. Surely that makes her fair game in order to uncover the truth!

Can the man who writes such moving verse be beyond redemption? Imogene can't believe so. In taming Vaughn's heart and healing the rift between their families, she's sure she's found her calling. Then his mission to unmask a killer reveals a terrifying plot. Only together can they safeguard his legacy, their newfound love and England's very future.


My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars. 

Disclaimers: I received a temporary electronic copy of this novel from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for my honest opinion. Thanks for letting me review this novel. 

My Overall Thoughts/Impressions: I will be honest. I really didn't expect to like this one all that much. I thought it would be cute but forgettable. I was dead wrong.

This book was hilariously funny and brilliantly written. I found myself laughing hysterically the entire time I read this novel. I love this era and I love it when I find a good book in the Napoleonic Era.

Imogene Devary has enough spunk to keep anybody's interest. And then there was Vaughn. I love a rogue who is really a good guy and that describes Vaughn perfectly. He wasn't society's perfect gentleman, yet he was a good guy who had his priorities right.

A novel full of intrigue, love, scandal, and betrayal set in the Regency era is bound to capture my attention. This one was hilarious, cute, and entertaining. I think fans of Austen and fans of this era in general will absolutely adore this book. 

In Summary: Scott's writing is beautiful. She creates characters that capture the reader's attention and combines it with a wry sense of humor set against a Napoleonic era. I loved this novel and definitely recommend it. 

The Wrap-up: I will definitely be reading more from this author. This was the first novel I've read by Scott and I can assure you it won't be the last. Check this one out. It's a cute read that I loved. 

Love,

Danica Page
