There's no writer of historical romance I love more than I love JAL and her Pennyroyal Green series. So I was over the moon when I heard she was returning to HR. And what a return! Kristen: Yes! Since I'm a bit of a late joiner to Romancelandia, I read all of the Pennyroyal series as part of Ms. Long's back catalogue. When I heard she was releasing a new historical series, I was thrilled to be getting in on the ground floor, as it were. I eagerly read this tale in one greedy sitting and adored it pretty much top to bottom. Well, now that I've tipped my hand... ladies, what say you? Dabney: I too love this book. So many things about it are my jam--the wonderfully witty banter, the smouldering tension between the leads, the developed and integral cast of characters. And the writing is as good as any in Long's catalog. Alexandra: I couldn't agree more. I've always enjoyed Long's writing, but this book has to be one of my favorites. I particularly liked the character of Delilah, Lady Derring. She comes across as innocent and naive in the beginning, but then surprised me with her wit and, well, daring. Kristen: In my professional life, I spend a lot of time with women who own businesses and many who started ones because they had no other choice, much like Delilah. There is such an air of "right, let's get on with it" about this book that I found gorgeously authentic to the women I work alongside and gave me such a deep affection for the character. Delilah could have easily wallowed in her circumstances, emotionally anyway, and instead took a deep breath and made it work.
