This was a wonderful read: It started out with Viscount Weston's marriage proposal was turned down by Astera Claybourne, and the shocking rejection sent the viscount to view it as a challenge, while Astera wanted nothing but write her book and lives her own life...therefore, the battle of wits began.

The writing of this book was superb, the dialogue smart and funny, and characterizations insightful; there were also some endearing lines, such as when Weston's feeling towards Astere had repeatedly been misunderstood, he finally hotly said to her: "You shall someday discover, Miss Claybourne, that love is not something to laugh off....I played no games when I told you I loved you. I loved you when I thought you were immoral...I loved you when I thought you were a dowd...and I love you now, even now, when I realize you have a no heart!" What a touching, helpless, romantic declaration. Fortunately, it had a nice and happy ending. Highly recommend it.

Helen Argers takes the old theme of "vengeful lover" and spins it on its head. The Viscount Weston, determined to marry the woman his father randomly picked, is surprised to find the lady in question is not interested in marriage, but rather a career. His machinations, and the lady's ability to be un-wooed by them, play out against the late Regency and War of Greek Independence. Despite her "unfashionable manner", Astera, the love interest, disconcerts the high ton, her guardians, the viscount, and her would-be greek lover alike. The witty rows between Astera and Weston are worth the price of admission alone. A perfect book for anyone tired of heroines unwilling and unable to take care of themselves in the drawing room or the high seas. The writing is excellent, and the plot works nicely. Despite the "PG" rating, the tone is adult, as are the characters.

The hero is a wimp. The heroine is a know-it-all. The plot is not historically accurate, as far as portraying this era of history in England. The only reason that I kept reading was that I was sure there must be a great ending coming. There was not!
