Really 3.5 stars. Loved the hero, Samuel. Emeline was the kind of heroine I really wanted to splash champagne on or perhaps stomp on her bonnet. Early on in the tale she was the typical English snoot but moved into just outright uncaring and I guess, due to my love of Sam, she just pissed me off.
It's really a good story and I'm a fan of Hoyt's. But, Emmie, ew.
