This is my favorite of the series (so far). I found Joseph and Louisa to be well-matched - too often the hero is so "perfect" and the heroine a bit of a twit in comparison, but in this book they are both intelligent, loving, affectionate, honest people. There's a conflict, of course, but it's ultimately a bit more "Gift of the Magi" than big, huge, dramatic gestures. I found their romance mature and refreshing.

9/4 - This was pretty good; not great, not worth returning to the library unread. Louisa and Joseph's affection for eachother wasn't very clear, possibly restricted by the fact that they called eachother Husband and Wife more often than they used eachother's names (how is that romantic?) or any other term of endearment. According to the series it's included in it's the 3rd in The Duke's Daughters series, but if you look at the family tree inside it shows that it's the 6th book to do with the Morelands, starting 30 years back with the original Duke and Duchess. Whether it's 3rd in an offshoot series or 6th overall, it's clear that it's best if you read the preceeding books first. There were a number of pieces of family history that weren't described very well, Burrowes obviously assuming all the readers would have read all the previous books first. To read books in series order is my usual choice, but my library website often doesn't give any details on whether a book is part of a series or not. I've got to start researching the books I intend to borrow, here, so this confusion doesn't keep happening.
