Highly engaging historical romance set in the mid Georgian period Thorpe s writing talents are excellent, and if you can find her books sadly out of print , they are well worth the investment of time for the fan of fun, clean historical romances. Lady Robin is, IMO, Thorpe s best heroine As much as I have always enjoyed reading a Thorpe romance, she veered too far on making her heroines meek, mild and dependent on the hero to save her from her scrapes which probably had to do with the time she was writing them, during the 1950 s and 60 s Not so with Lady Robin, who is fiesty, spunky, daring and lovable yet with plenty of character flaws like impatience and foolhardy impulsiveness My only quibble with this book is the absolutely deplorable cover of this one It does not remotely resemble Georgian whatsoever in appearence The first half was interesting, although the heroine Lady Robin a, was annoying most of the times She values her freedom so much that she doesn t care about the effect her behaviour has on others, on people she cares In fact, it is as if she cares for no one The hero loves her from the beginning, but how this happens, is a mystery The second half is mostly adventure with certain stolen emeralds. I read this book because this author was compared to Norma Lee Clark who is my new favourite.
