Well, you can definitely tell that it was her earliest. Much more juvenile and cliche. The villain? Much too romanticized. The man carried her off against her will to marry him against her consent. Not romantic. Not proof that he loves her. Exactly the opposite. And even the estranged brothers bit was not enough to salvage this one. Sheer melodramatic teen fluff in an historical setting. It is not bad as such and still rather remarkable to think that she wrote this at 16, but seeing as how I had just finished some of her best, this is not one that I would strongly recommend, especially if you are just starting Heyer.
