Do you ever feel like you ca n't wait to g home and snuggle into bed and read your book?

Yes, it was steamy at times, but his ha a thinking woman 's historical romance.

I liked that nove! Caroline is a otanist, she breeds roses and dreams of one day traveling to America to study at Columbia University to live her life long dream.

Caroline has no intention of remaining married to him, planning to run off to America and pursue her lov of studying botany and getting an annulment.

At first Brent seems like some obnoxious earl, but as we et to now him, he is not much more and we grow to love him and his interesting history.

Someone like Caroline faced many obstacles to be ble to become a botanist- it ould have been virtualy unheard of and impossible for her to chieve her dream in real life outside a romance fiction.

Caroline respresented the women of the mont, and Brent supported her, going against the typical male stereotype of keeping the little oman in her place, born to marry, have babies and tend their flower gardens.There is much, much ore to nove than I 've described.

Even their well kept secrets are ticking bombs that can and do rip them apart.

The h is not just your average bluestocking but a Mensa level genius, a female Gregor Mendel who grows and breeds flowering plants.

Her elder sister clears so many things at the end- for the H and the reader.
