Marshall Hawekesworth makes this book worth reading. A true hero he sets out to eliminate all threat to his sister, falls for the woman responsible, then fights for her reputation and her hand.
If not for such a well written hero the book would have fallen flat. The story line is amusing, though difficult to picture this innocent Lady Athena capable of going through with her venture. She is written as a smart mouthed fiery woman, but at times you just want to shake her.
The first and last chapters are written in the perspective of the building and it was a cute way to introduce and say farewell, for now that is.
