"Reliable Veryan, mixing romance, humor, light mystery, and a satisfyingly noisy finish with just enough touches of period diction and mores to add the right Regency flavor." - Kirkus Reviews
"Veryan deftly balances romance, mystery, comedy and - with special poignancy - the conflict Marietta must face, torn between love of country and love of a dashing man." - Publishers Weekly
