    This is the first novel I’ve read by D.L. Rose… if she continues to improve in her writing I think that eventually she could write some really great Victorian romances. This one needs improvement.

    The overall plot is fantastic, the idea behind the story is quite exciting. There’s a damsel in distress – Lillian St. James, daughter of a Duke whose father is being hunted for Treason. Definitely more than the usual scandal. With no protection or family members and her official guardian (the next Duke) who the heck knows where, she’s forced to go into hiding. Coincidentally, the household she ends up joining as a kitchen assistant happens to belong to the man assigned by the crown to hunt for her, Dominic, an Earl. He’s a handsome rake and more than a bit of a rogue. There’s danger, because her step-father is still hunting for her as is the Crown, there’s humor when it comes to her friends and there’s a pretty decent amount of sexual tension.

    The biggest problem with this story (other than the occasional verbal anachronisms – seriously, no one in the Victorian era called his friend “Buddy”) is the fact that nothing is fully fleshed out. The dialogue is good, but there’s a huge lack of descriptions of people, places, body language, and thoughts. When we do get to see into someone’s head, the writing tends to be a little stilted, as if the author isn’t comfortable trying to actually deal with the characters’ emotions and thoughts.

    Things are also a little too rushed. Dominic is after his kitchen maid in a big way, even though he knows it’s wrong and it makes him feel like a “monster”. Personally I thought the romantic/sexual tension would have been better served if he’d kept his hands completely off of her instead of ambushing her and kissing her senseless constantly. It makes him and her look bad, because he knows he’s doing the wrong thing but does it any way, even though she’s begging him to leave her alone, and then she looks bad once the romance really gets going and he knows who she really is and she apparently is okay with the fact that when she was a kitchen maid he wasn’t behaving honorably. This character flaw of his is never discussed and it never seems to worry her once she’s no longer masquerading as a maid, which is both unrealistic and slightly disturbing.

    This book has all the bones of a really great story, what it needs is some muscle, some skin, some teeth. Looking at the price… I feel like I overpaid a little considering the quality of the story, but I can always hope that eventually the author will come back with a more fully fleshed out edition and I’ll be able to re-download.

    Absolutely terrible!, February 3, 2013
    This review is from: Mine, All Mine (Kindle Edition)
    If I could have given this book a zero I would have. First, the language in this book is completely current and not at all in keeping with the time in which the book should have taken place. The conversations between the characters are excruciating to read. A true fan of historical romance will cringe at all of the mistakes, the grammatical errors, the flaws in names. A casual reader will be bored to tears at this utterly predictable and overused plot. There is nothing memorable, endearing or even interesting about the characters. Usually I won’t review a book unless I’ve finished it but by 72% I couldn’t take anymore of this drivel. Truly the worst book I’ve read this year and I’ve read close to three hundred. Truly terrible.

    This was a very good book, that was hard to put down. I finished it the same day and I’m looking forward to the other characters in this one to having their own stories. I will be looking out for this new author.

    Another reviewer is posting reviews on this author’s free stories, based on her aversion to same-sex love, so don’t let the one star review put you off this author. This is just a little extra sample of another book written by this author. It, along with her other freebie, was enough to hook me on her work. She writes very sweet m/m period romances that not only touch you, but are also sizzling hot (almost more than I like). This little short story is a good sample of her work, and I have purchased several novellas written by her since then. They’re very well-written and these, as well as other characters, are well-developed, and she really fits a lot of detail into the novellas. I unsually don’t like series, but I’m really enjoying hers. They are all separate and stand alone, but the characters have “cameos” in the other stories.

    I have all the books of the Bound series and this is a nice addition to a story about two people in love, if only for a chance to see Oliver in charge!

    Normally, I’d have given this short a 3.5 or even 4-star rating, but perhaps this might help balance the obviously harmful and biased review elsewhere.

    This book is pretty good for a freebie. At first I was worried since it had such low score but then I read the other reviews and understood why. This book made me want to read the other books in the series.
