Having read a lot of historical romance over the years, I am always on the lookout for books that are set in non-traditional countries (and by this, I mean, France, England, Scotland – which I would guesstimate make up about 85% of most historical romances)…so when I saw this one was set in Austria, I was immediately intrigued. Added to that, since I studied the French Revoluation in high school (and my mom being a French teacher) I am interested in various periods of history where France/french personalities play a significant role. So this book was a winner for me. I was immediately draw into the story of Greta and Oliver as their relationship developed. The historical period made a suitable backdrop for Greta’s "talents" and Oliver’s past and present positions. I will definately be looking forward to more books by Ms. Lofty in the future.
