    Love Jennifer Moore’s books! I didn’t realize at first that this book ties in with the other two I’ve previously read. I love the characters and their interactions with each other. I hope there’s more to come!

  2. This is a sweet young adult Regency romance, with a feisty heroine trying to make her way through a season in London- conflicted by her family’s expectations of an advantageous marriage to save their failing business and her own dreams for her life. Her friendship with “Carlo” provides relief from the judgements and pretensions of some of the other guests in the duke’s home. While I didn’t think it was well-done of the prince to willfully deceive Meg, his intentions are understandable. The book reads like a storytelling, which makes it a little more difficult to experience the emotions of the characters. The intrigues of war add tension to the plot as the prince is caught between a desire to find the abducted members of his royal family and remaining safe for the future of Spain. Recommend for young adults and adults who enjoy clean historical romance.

    This is the first book I’ve read of Jennifer Moore’s and I loved it! I really enjoyed the different adventures that Meg and Rodrigo went on. It was really well written and I can’t wait to read more of her books!

    I loved this book!! Meg was a wonderful heroine! She was smart and charming and adventurous. Rodrigo was so perfect for her. I loved the fun, adventure, and playfulness of their courtship. I’m glad she got to see Rodrigo for who he was and not for his title. This is one I will be re-reading in the future!

    This is a really good story! It was different than I expected, but in a good way. I listened to the audiobook, which I think made it even better. The narrator’s portrayal of Prince Rodrigo’s Spanish accent made him sound so exotic.

    This book was clean and enjoyable. A light read. I think my favorite character was Colonel Stackhouse. He bluntly states the things that I longed to hear someone say. I also thought Meg’s relationship with Carlos was cute. And Lord Featherstone was as obnoxious as he was intended to be. I was annoyed by Meg’s brother Daniel. Why couldn’t he be the one to marry wealthy and save the family instead of feeding his sister to the wolves? It seemed that he would have had plenty of opportunity.
