By Adele Ashworth
This got a B+ from us. We wrote:
The sexual attraction between Natalie and Jonathan is as intense as can be. The attraction is there from page one and just builds and builds throughout the book. There are two love scenes in Stolen Charms and they are powerful and sensual and written without a trace of purple prose. Aspiring writers would do well to study those scenes to see how a truly passionate love scene should be done. Despite the sometimes clumsy plot, Stolen Charms gets my vote for one of the best historical romances of 1999. Adele Ashworth is a crafter of beautiful prose and memorable characters. She is a writer with a unique and distinctive voice and one that I predict we will hear more from in the future.
