I really enjoy Joan Smith books. I have read almost all of them available electronically, and a few on paper, but,while there are many that I adore, there are also some that I think are less successful. I found this book very different than all the Joan Smith books that I have read. It is hard to put into words. The focus seemed different. The characters and writing seemed different. The perspective switches seemed odd. It Started with the heroine, then went to the hero's cousins, then to the hero, and took so long to return to the heroine, that, combined with some unflattering interactions with the heroine, I began to believe she was not the heroine afterall. There was interesting information about the Vienna Congress, but the intrigue was primary, the romance barely secondary, perhaps even tertiary to the crazy cousins. Sex, though still not graphic or overt, was a more prominent factor in this novel, versus Smith's other books. I felt a bit cheated out of the development of the romance, although there was enough to hold me to finish the book. The intrigue was interesting and complex, although it seemed too easy and quick when the villans were finally caught. One man with a gun versus two of them? They had been shown to be so resourceful and clever, I found it hard to accept that they didn't fight a little harder. The cousins were pretty over-the-top, and not in an endearing way, but rather, kind of a disgusting, selfish, pleasure-seeking, hedonistic way. I have no doubt there were people like that (and still are), but I definitely disliked them. ("Google wants...", babytalk, multiple lovers, gratuitous luxury and expense, etc.)

Overall, I'm not sorry to have read the book, but it will not be one that I re-read.

I never thought I would toss out a Joan Smith book, but this one goes straight in the rubbish.

The hero is lukewarm, the heroine is shallow. The secondary characters were the most enjoyable - the heroine's father and godmother, and the hero's cousins. Unlike the previous reviewer I enjoyed the cousins' excesses because they were the ultimate illustration of unworthy aristos.

There was too much political detail at the expense of the romance. Social events were just sketched in and only seemed to be there for the hero to investigate the story's intrigue plot. I stayed with the book because it was Joan Smith and I was convinced it would get better, but it didn't, and after a while I just became fascinated that a book could fail in so many ways.
