I have to say that is was a very light and entertaining read. Nothing deep. Some tension but very flippant. There is a bit of commentary about how defenseless a woman is especially due to her station in life. It doesn't come off as didactic and nicely woven into the story.
The hero, Harry, is not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer but not the dullest either. It almost makes for a change for the general characterization of the alpha male hero though Harry does have alpha male tendencies. The dynamic is pretty amusing. It reminds me the show, Moonlighting with Sybil Sheppard and Bruce Willis - the smart female and the not as smart male.
This is my first Loretta Chase novel and I enjoyed it as a light read and would certainly give another one of her novels a try.
