Her late husband-Henry, Viscount Felsham-had protested faintly at the presence of a vast and motheaten bearskin on his wife’s chamber floor, but Bel, otherwise biddable and compliant with every stricture and requirement of her new husband, had stuck her heels in and Horace had stayed. Henry had always ostentatiously made a point of sighing heavily and walking around him whenever he made his twice-weekly visitation to her room.

Louise Allen has been immersing herself in history for as long as she can remember. She finds landscapes and places evoke powerful images of the past - Venice, Burgundy and the Greek islands are favourite destinations. Louise lives on the Norfolk coast.

I also loved Bel and Ashe.

As another reviewer noted - this is a refreshingly honest couple. They deal with each other the way real people should. Are there occasional misunderstandings? Of course. But when confronted - omgoodness the truth emerges immediately! And yet they also manage to maintain their pride.

There's a lot of great humor in this book, along with a wonderfully sexy alpha male in Ashe, a strong heroine in Bel, and some wonderfully sinful sexy scenes. Watching their relationship grow was a lot of fun and seeing both of them grow as people was even more so. Bel became stronger with every passing page, supported completely by Ashe, and the two of them together make a rather formidable team. It's nice to just be able to sit back and watch a romance organically happen without throwing a murder or blackmail into the mix in an attempt to keep things interesting. Of course there are setbacks (it wouldn't be interesting if there weren't) but the romance stands strongly on its own without needed any extra manufactured "excitement."
It is just a fun book. A widow dreams of a hero and to her surprise one walks into her bedroom. He is in the wrong house and cheerfully drunk. They do become lovers later, but through a series of awkward situations, the story is light and rather fun. It is one of my favorite books to cheer me up when life becomes a little too grim.
This was an interesting work about characters first described in other books. It was a lot of fun and satisfied the urge to know "what happended to Lady Felsham."
I am enjoying this book much more than the rather implausible Graustark/imaginary kingdom title, The Dangerous Mr. Ryder, that was the first in the Ravenhurst family series.

It does need a correction. Throughout the text, Louisa, Elinor's mother, is referred to as "Lady James" Ravenhurst -- the proper terminology for the wife of the younger son of a duke -- but on the family tree in front, Louisa's husband is listed as Lord "Henry" Ravenhurst.

It would probably be easier in the subsequent books of the series to change the family tree than the text of this book.
Louise Allen has long headed my Top 10 Best Romantic Authors list, for the consistent excellence of her writing, the creation of realistic characters in all of their quirkiness (whom you come to love, or at the very least, to understand), and her bias toward deep intelligence, wicked humor, & compassionate integrity. She really puts us as readers in touch with our own humanity.

For me, this story was nearly a condensation of all that's best about reading a Louise Allen novel.

Here we have an intriguing setup to pitch the story and the romance itself into immediate high gear. (The plot details can be read elsewhere; this is simply my response to the reading experience.)

For their own reasons, each of the two main characters is refreshingly open & honest with the other --- which, of course, provides a principal pillar of intimacy that will quickly add an important extra dimension to the thrillingly sensual romance already underway from nearly the beginning of the book. (Sidenote: as a reader, I appreciated the economy of building sexual tension organically into the storyline from the get-go, rather than having to wait until the 35% or 40% point to have artificially built up enough time & tension to get into some romantic action.)

But back to the story: our hero is an English officer & nobleman freshly returned from years of the horrors of war, ending in the meatgrinder that was Waterloo. Like many a veteran, his experiences have stripped his priorities down to the essentials and taught him efficiency in dealing with life & its relationships & obstacles. Add to that a naturally sunny disposition now tempered with compassion for the human condition, a sharp & well-ordered mind, and a background as the big brother to a housefull of sisters --- necessitating the development of seriously patient listening skills --- and you get the type of man who doesn't waste time calling a spade anything other than a spade. And who actually LISTENS. To men AND to women. And then THINKS about it. And then RESPONDS! ....... All conditions devoutly to be wished for, in a romantic tale, no? Oh, sure, he's also a gorgeous hunk with a great sense of humor, plenty of masculine boldness, wealth & a title, yadah yadah yadah, but here's the big deal: He TELLS THE TRUTH, as he sees it, to the heroine, his lover.

Now, how many times do you run into THAT in this genre? The heroine is also a delightfully open and candid person, but for completely different reasons: she is, as our story opens, at a major turning point in her development from life as a nonperson (a gentlewoman ignored as a child and raised as a pawn to be traded off for political gain by her family to the dullest titled human on the planet --- a man whose only interest in life had been drains) into becoming, after her freeing widowhood, a wealthy, independent woman finally able to express her own thoughts without having to echo others' or account for them --- or for her actions --- to oppressive mores, people, or institutions that formerly held all the power that defined every boundary in her life.

In her case, she's a bright lady with an inborn sense of mischief that immediately translates to a wicked wit when the lid is lifted from the pot. Well-educated but bereft of any real life experience, she is an innocent who has plenty of opinions & insights that she has simply never had any reason to share with anyone, since no one in her life has ever given her the impression that they might value her thoughts or ideas. Thus, she is quite ripe for candid, adult communication....of every type. (;

Of course, our heroine has all of the usual attributes required in this genre: beauty, charm, intelligence, feistiness, wicked wit, yadah yadah yadah, but there is a softness, an inherent sweetness to her that is rarely set so starkly in companionship with the fiercely logical mental processes that guide her speech & actions throughout.

Granted, her transformation from sheltered youth to precocious, rebellious, sometimes selfish & thoughtless teenager (figurately speaking) during the bulk of this story, to fully matured adult with the finely-tuned sense of responsibility to herself & others that necessarily underlies true independence, pretty much dictates that the heroine is going to be the designated cork in the bottleneck of progress when the romance hits the obligatory obstacle before all is resolved.

Nevertheless, be assured that this story has a much higher quotient of intelligence, common sense, wit, sensual sex play, and just plain sweetness, than the usual historical romance.

Just read it; it'll put a smile on your face and a tingle in your tummy.
Have read it for the 50th time and still love it. Very very well written. Wish there were more on this family
LA creates fabulous heroes and stories. Ashe and Bel were perfectly fine.

I liked Bel because she had grit, and I think Ashe found it endearing.

Ashe's visit home to see his family was kind of comical. His mother was remodeling the house and his sisters needed this and needed that. He couldn't wait to get out if there.
