My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The characters in this book were very entertaining, vivid and distinct. It was a true fairy tale. Gertrude, the American feminist, meets Blake, the English Duke. The two argue and love with passion. Gertrude finds her softer side and Blake discovers love is everything. He realizes he needs to connect with his children and let go some of the English traditions he has been raised to uphold. Yes, there was sex involved - not too explicit for which I am grateful. It was such a wonderful and exciting adventure that I was glad that it was over 500 pages on my iPhone. The wrap-up was so romantic, yet comical and new at the same time. Loved the characters - all of them - Holly Bush developed them so well I felt I was right there with them. And she kept things moving. There wasn't a page I would have skimmed. Good show, Ms. Bush!
