How to describe this one? It was not one of those typical historical romances and therefor I would not want to call it that. It was the book in between H and HR. Also with a dose of mystery, spies and suspense.The heroine, oh Emily, you were hard to like you ungrateful idiot. I get why she was like that, but she lived in a time where she had no rights so at least be civil to your husband and not a shrew. Yes I confess that at one time I wish Angus had throw that ungrateful strumpet out on the street to fend for herself. But I am not gonna be totally evil because she changes, there is romance there after all.Angus, awww Angus, he was so kind, he waited, he hoped, aww my heart. A perfect man. Sure he too had made mistakes before, but how he adored her.As you can see they really really have to work for the love to grow. It's not easy, it's hard, almost impossible. But slowly things fall into place and they find what they want.As for the suspense. There are spies, secrets, and the ongoing conflict between France and England. The book gave me a few surprises.A different sort of love story.
