Review: I've read only Courtney Milan books and didn't enjoy them. But when this popped up for free on my kindle, I decided to give her one more try. I'm glad I did. I greatly enjoyed this book. Yes, the heroine's secret is a bit far-fetched, but the characters overall are well-done. In particular, Milan's secondary characters add much to the story (which makes sense as her secondary characters become mains in other books). I found the Duke's idea of reform a bit naive, but I'm not sure if that is the writer's fault or actually, part of his character. As for the heroine, I thought her flaw was well-done and realistic, and added depth to her, as did her way of thinking in tactics. My only qualm was that they fell in love awfully quick - over the span of a few weeks. But this is typical of most romance novels, and not something that shall be held against Milan.
