Lynn Kerstan has long been one of my very favorite writers of historical romance. It's tragic that her books never got the distribution and exposure they deserved. So I was thrilled to find this new e-book from her on Kindle. It lived up to my hopes.
Lynn Kerstan | LibraryThing
Kerstan writes brilliantly, with a level of style rarely met with today. Her heroine is dry, witty, and fun to watch as she contends with a classic rake bent on seduction. Reminiscent of the best of Balogh. Mar 20, Queenberly rated it liked it. He's presented as flawless but he's actually very selfish and spoiled. I just can't swallow that they'd have a HEA. She grew in the story, he didn't. View 1 comment.
