When I read about this book, I thought it sounded too good — an Pride and Prejudice-y retelling, but with magic! AND YET. So far, it is an absolute delight brightening my dreary day.

The way Sebastian grows this relationship gives me all the warm fuzzies. I've read so many books where the couple comes to an understanding in Book One, and Book Two opens with already a misunderstanding and separation -- a will-they-or-won't-they forced to drive reader engagement that I find vexing. But Leo and James are utterly different here.

esurient It's a romance in a mix of 'I don't deserve to be so lucky', 'and now what do I do', 'but wait, he wants... the same?' that I found utterly charming. 8h
esurient And I found that I heartily enjoyed the mystery angle here, too. Every part, which almost never happens for me -- mysteries are not my preferred genre. 8h
esurient All in, very solid cozy pick. I'm laying bets that Book Three (more) involves a spying angle. 8h

This is my pick for 1985. Yes, for me this was another re-read. I haven‘t read it since…gosh, 1999 when we lived in England. I fell in love with it all over again! This is without a doubt one of the best romance books penned. This title made me fall in love with historical romance novels way back when! Love the characters, the setting, the humor. It‘s got it all. #19822022 #romantsy @Librarybelle

Spent the evening reading, because spending time with a romance novel was what I needed. I felt both Violet and Sebastian, and I'm very glad everyone is this book found each other.

@TheSpineView 1. And 2. I read pretty much exclusively on my phone, unless the book has elements that work better in print. I used to use my kindle but it was a pain to keep up with multiple cords and devices. It was also heavy and large. I just love the ability to access millions (billions?) of books within seconds and have them with me at all times. And It‘s so easy to toggle between ebook and audio that I can keep reading while in the car.

Going back to 1994 for this read! I adore Andrea Kane and her historical romances are by far my favorite. I love this story. She truly had the broody alpha hero down pat! Super fast read. #19822022 #romantsy @Librarybelle

I picked up the first in this series (tagged) on a whim from Hoopla, and quickly moved right onto the second book. I finished both of these in only a handful of days. I really enjoyed the characterization of the love interests and buildup of their romances. I didn‘t mind that they weren‘t particularly steamy, but I would have appreciated more description of their love scenes compared to the way the author “yadda yaddas” completely over the sex.
