    "Ive just started to get into regency romances and have read several "classics" from different 'best of lists'. I noticed this novel came up on several lists and decided to give it a read. It is by far superior to all I've read thus far. It was heart-pounding, beautifully written and now one of my instant favorites. The two main protagonists are so thoughtfully and thoroughly crafted. Although the heroine frustrates me in the second half of the book and I sometimes don't quite understand her, I think the hero is masterfully crafted. Some reviewers who gave this less than five stars complained that it was hard to read - that's the point. The novel moves very quickly from her (Maddy's) perspective to his (Christian's), but it is in Christian's perspective; one that is seriously disabled by stroke, who has a hard time hearing, understanding and articulating language, where we see the author's true gift for prose. The reader is MEANT to be as frustrated as the hero in understanding what others are saying. We are allowed to see into the depth of his mind and his consciousness. We are suppose to struggle to understand, just as he does. It takes us to another level of reading that I have really not seen in other authors. Especially in this genre. This was far beyond some other historical romances and I would put it up there (maybe not equal, but not far behind) to other classics, such as Persuasion, Pride and Prejudice and Jane Eyre). My only complaint would when the plot turns close to the end **spoiler** where Maddy writes her letter and agrees to have it published. After coming to Christian's defense so many times and staying by him so he would not be embarrassed, I could see her wishing to leave, but would not see how could she come to shame him - even if she is herself ashamed. That part seemed out of character - but it also led to such a heart wrenching confrontation in the Quaker Meeting House - something that was so beautiful, heartbreaking and exquisite that I can't bring myself to give it anything less than five stars. Highly recommend (and I never write reviews, so you know how much I loved it)."

    "I will confess right off the bat that I’m one of those readers who never “got” you. I tried to read Pride and Prejudice years ago, but gave up after a few pages because of your writing style. What can I say – I had less patience in those days with long, indirect sentences which seemed to use 20 words to say what could be easily said in five."

    "Like all of Hoyt's stories, features a troubled male protagonist, a multi-layered heroine (in fact, Melissande seems to have more hidden depths than any of her other heroines, save that of her first book, "The Raven Prince"), and a plot with dark undertones of loss, betrayal, and rage. In this case, Lord Vale is determined to discover the traitor in his war regiment, a journey that takes him to unsavory places to meet with unsavory people. Melissande, in contrast, is suffering from her unrequited love for Vale, love she attempts to keep hidden, even after they marry and start a sexual relationship. This struggle is surprisingly heart wrenching, and it's easy to identify with Melissande's restrained longing for her husband"

    "A beautiful romance set in Georgina Era. What I love the most about this book is the sophistication and class that's depicted in the love triangle. This is no typical teenage love story, it's a wickedly attractive and dark romance that pulls you in. I would highly recommend this book, it's a beauty, in romance and its setting. "

    "I love period romance novels, and this ranks up there with one of the best I've read! It's wildly romantic and sensual, and the period setting completely pulls you in. It also keeps you on pins and needles to see how it ends. An excellent read!"

    "I'm a big fan of the Georgian Era so this book was a really fun read for me. It's a romance book so if that's not your thing then look somewhere else but I was into it despite the fact that I;m not typically huge into romance. The characters are good, there is a lot of depth to the story and you won't be bored as much as many other romance novels."
