I liked the idea of the heroine's mission of spiriting away female servants away from horrible employers to better situations. However, it just doesn't seem believable the way it was developed. The male hero, Deverall stalks Phoebe. Their courtship has a lot of moments that just don't sit well with me for some reason. And the storyline is not as well developed as previous novels.
With that said, if you can get past those hurdles, it is again an enjoyable read. Deverall (as with all the male characters in this series) have to figure out how to reintegrate into Society and their unexpected titles and responsibilities post Napoleonic War.
