Jane Feather 'A Wicked Gentleman'

Jane Feather has always been a hit or miss author for me. She writes well, but sometimes she crafts a really good story and sometimes she just doesn't. I liked Lady Cornelia but the first half of the book was really slow, both from a relationship development standpoint and a plot perspective. The hero and heroine do manage to spend some time together but there is very little sexual tension or even any spark, leading me to wonder why they end up in bed together when it finally does happen. I even questioned Harry's incredible intellect (he's a spy and a code cracker) when he doesn't pursue the issue of the missing nephew more thoroughly.

This is an author who can write, and can craft reasonable character development. This story had neither a spark between the two protagonists, nor did it have a compelling enough plot.

Historical Romance 2007: 2 out of 5 stars.
