Way too repetitive...
I hadn't even gotten to the fateful game, but it was repetitive. The heroine could have made at least 5 better choices before she even got there.
One of the author's favorite writers -- Georgette Heyer. She was the woman who kicked off Jane Austen's legacy in the 20th Century, and is a master at the whole Regency (and Georgian) genre(s).
She has a pleasant voice, but should differentiate the sexes a little more clearly. Repartee doesn't work when it's the same intonation.
