This is an entertaining read, but I would have liked it better if the romance had been more the focus of the story. The love between Philip and Joanna is declared fairly early in the book, which means the rest of the story focuses almost exclusively on the mystery/adventure of who Philip Digby is and what will happen when the new Earl of Varne arrives. I didn't think the deception at the center of the story was too difficult to decipher--in fact, I figured it out immediately, so that may have contributed to my feeling that the story dragged out over not very much at all. The subplot about the Star of Death felt especially tacked on--almost like a MacGuffin--but maybe the jewel figures into other Sylvia Thorpe novels? That might explain why it's included here since otherwise, it had little to do with the story. Overall, though, it is a well-written novel and the author's historical expertise is never in doubt.

No digs taken here on Philip Digby. He absolutely sparkles. Joanna is nowhere near his equal--something like Northanger Abby. It may be that she's just too young. Even if she NEVER becomes his equal, though, I do not begrudge her her happy ending since she DOES have some first-rate qualities. There are no supernatural elements to it. I skipped the swordfighting scenes; so I'm not sure how graphic the violence is. But, and as I've come to expect from Sylvia Thorpe, the language is clean and there is no promiscuity in it, **spoilers ahead** it is only threatened against Joanna's friend. Character development and dialogue are REALLY good. I found this offering of Sylvia Thorpe delightful!

Not as heavy on historical info. as some of Thorpe's other romances, it's still a light, fun read.
