This is a Restoration-set romance with a noble, virtuous lady-in-waiting heroine and a highwayman hero. This is not Robinson's Lady Gallant. It kind of tries to be. It's not deep and it's very over-the-top, but Westin's touch is usually light enough not to be too annoying. However, coincidences just keep happening. At the end when it turns out that Lady Anne's evil noble husband is alive and spying for the Hollanders, I wondered, Why isn't this over yet?

Then I put it on my take-to-the-bookstore-downstairs pile. I'm sure they take care of her ex just fine.

It's not really a bad book. Just fluffy and long-winded, a combination I was not in the mood for.
