1.0 out of 5 stars Nope, can't give this a 5-star rating! July 8 2004
By SusieQ
I read lots of historical romance novels, and I find that the ones I like best are when the authors have done their homework. I think it's essential that a book with its plot set in a certain time period, or historical setting, has its facts straight.
That being said, this book was riddled with errors from page 2 on...If the author had read just ONE biography of Edward VII, she would have realized that he had a very strong sense of "lese majesty" and never allowed himself to be treated with familiarity even by his "friends"; plus his name was ALBERT Edward, Prince of Wales, during the time period when this story takes place; not Prince Edward Albert (he only became "Edward" officially after Queen Victoria's death)...well, you get the picture, I could go on but won't for the sake of brevity.
Just let me mention that the heroine, during her presentation at Court, refers to "Prince Edward Albert" and Queen Victoria, to their faces, as "your majesties", not once but twice. That's the kind of sloppy historical fact-checking/editing that's going on in this novel.

But worse, even if you put the historical boo-boos aside, this book is really stiff; hard to pick up again once you put it down, and downright dull. Its characters are stock figures with no depth aside from their good looks; they are not unique or original.
This one will be going into my library's donation bin with all speed. I gave it one star because it was NOT as dull as "Flight of Fancy" which is the prequel to this story, but that's not saying much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic portrait of the Gilded Age! Aug. 12 2002
I loved this book! The heroine is Lily, an heiress being sought for her wealth. She was very sympathetic, and the hero, Alexander Drake, was amazing. Lots of interesting period settings, too, with the Ascot races and Prince Edward himself up to all kinds of shenanigans. A great read!
