Y. Gabriel. 8/10
Free Regency iBook. Not perfect, but still a wonderful book. The two best features of this book are firstly the sense of humour and banter between Gabriel, and his artist love interest, Polianaise, and secondly their very tender love scenes. The storyline is Regency ridiculous, yet I really enjoyed the book. He met her when he went into hiding after numerous murder attempts left him with a severe back injury. She was hiding the fact that her sister's daughter was in fact her own daughter, since she was seduced by her sister's disgusting husband when she was 15. The love scenes between Polly and Gabriel, who is in fact, a marquis, are very moving, and tender. Delightful stuff! Storylines built on misconceptions and people not saying the truth are tedious, but I still enjoyed this book.
