This Regency gets a B+ from us. It's an deftly plotted romantic suspense story. Our reviewer wrote:
I really appreciate that Leisure publishes romances that are different from the tried and true Regency historical glutting the market today. The Spare is the story of a Regency house party, but with enough twists to make it unlike any other romance I’ve read. The suspense subplot was tightly drawn and integral to the story itself. Readers who are expecting from this author another book just like Lord Ruin may be disappointed, but readers looking for a good story will not be. I can’t wait to see what kind of story Jewel writes next.
