I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)

Currently reading

The Handmaid's Tale
Margaret Atwood
Trek Science - mit Warpgeschwindigkeit in die Zukunft? (German Edition)
Inga Nielsen, Stefan Thiesen

Very nice historical - with some Georgette Heyer deja vues.

Knaves' Wager - Loretta Chase

With Lilith I was reminded quite a bit of the female lead in "The Nonesuch" (Ancilla Trent). 

 

Also the storyline of the younger relative (of the male lead) who wants to marry a girl of bad reputation reminded me of "Faro's daughter" though the constellation was not exactly the same.

 

The

not happened elopement of her warden that brought them together again

(show spoiler)

reminded me also of "The Nonesuch" - and "Faro's daughter" again :-)

 

It was a well written and nicely constructed historical romance, even if it was not so very original.

 

It didn't have much steam - but the cast of characters was interesting and made for entertaining reading.

 

Especially Miss Glenwood who was really a gem.
