The characters do things that would simply not have been done in Regency England by members of the upper classes. It is therefore very difficult for the reader to suspend disbelief at some of the incidents described. - The critical scene, where the virginal heroine is molested in her own home behind closed doors, could just not have happened. No butler worth his salt would dream of admitting a gentleman caller in the absence of the young lady's parents, much less leave them alone together. The excuse that the staff had been given time off is not credible either - when the family were in residence, staff did not have "time off".
The language feels all wrong too. In her attempt at "English" colloquialism, she attributes to her characters the idioms of the lower classes. No English lady would have used the word "Quid" (and still would not today), to quote just one example.
If, unlike myself, you are not so closely acquainted with English history, social customs and the peculiarities of idiomatic language as to be irritated by the author's style, you will be able to enjoy this story for what it is meant to be: fast-paced, romantic, humourous and adventurous with a murder mystery thrown in !
Jack Faraday is given the cut direct by Lilith as they are introduced. This infuriates him so much (NO ONE treats HIM in such a manner) that he seeks his revenge by intending to seduce her. Lilith, honoring familiar demands that she marry for a title and social position, looks for a husband from the ton elite. She strives to stay away from Jack who has suddenly made himself available at every turn. While he is a Marquis, his name is embroiled in scandel. This is a fact that would bother Lilith's family and had never actually bothered Jack, until he met Lilith. The electricity flies between them and I found this to be a genuinely fun book.
