Reviews Anonymous I love it. Everything I have read or listened to by this author is full of well developed characters and the story just draws you in and holds you till the end. I love Paul Morey, he is an an excellent narrator. Thr only this that could have made this better would be, if he had used an english accents.

Shelves: gay-historical Theres a good story here, but it annoyed me as I was reading it, despite the fact the plot is decently formed and the structure was something I should have liked a lot.
The problem is with the pacing; it was very uneven. It spent a lot of time on some aspects that were sometimes less important than others that were frustratingly told not shown, and jumped about here and there.
Characters were introduced as if we knew them well, when Im scratching my head and saying whos this? Granted the other adoptive children in the story bully him but children do. I predicted that he would behave like an absolute horror in some way or other but really putting on an act until the day he inherited—but this did not happen. It was hard to see what he was, to be honest as he turned out to be a Nice Chap which seemed a bit odd.
Telling not showing was prevalent all the way through. Some of the sequences add to the disjointed effect. Sometimes Ashton speaks like aperfectly normal aristocrat, and then he suddenly lapses into cant that would do justice to any Heyer novel.

I thoroughly enjoyed her writing style. Overall, it was very easy to read and free from distracting errors. Her main characters are genuine, lovable guys, and her story is very sweet and romantic. I really liked how she used authentic historical verbiage and jargon. I felt like it truly brought the setting to life by giving it a strong sense of time and place. The light mystery surrounding the disappearance of the family gem known as the Flame of Diabul took some unexpected twists and turns that I never would have predicted and which made me stop and think for a moment on how that all turned out.
