This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here It was an enjoyable read, as all Joan Smith s books are, but the largest part of the book consists of the hero mooning over anyone but the heroine it seems He only realizes in about the last half dozen pages that Sal is the one for him, and the attraction seems largely based on his sudden awareness that she has adored him all the while Definitely not the most convincing romance I ve ever read. Is it just me or was Lord Griffin kind of a jerk and a fool He wasn t exactly good romance hero material.he seemed genuinely in love with our heroine s insipid sister, he chased and flirted shamelessly with another nasty debutante and he just seemed clueless in general about women Our heroine certainly deserved better than a tacked on epiphany that she was really the woman for him. The Savage Lord Griffin started out pretty good Lord Griffin took off for Brazil right after proposing to Myra, the most beautiful lady in London, and has only now, 5 years later, returned to find his fiance engaged to another, Lord Duns Myra s sister, Sal, befriends him and tells him what he must do to regain his fiance s love, despite her being in love with him herself Myra gets them to allow her some time to decide and goes with each in turn to the parties, balls and routs at the end o The Savage Lord Griffin started out pretty good Lord Griffin took off for Brazil right after proposing to Myra, the most beautiful lady in London, and has only now, 5 years later, returned to find his fiance engaged to another, Lord Duns Myra s sister, Sal, befriends him and tells him what he must do to regain his fiance s love, despite her being in love with him herself Myra gets them to allow her some time to decide and goes with each in turn to the parties, balls and routs at the end of the London Season This part of the book was interesting and engaging However, the writer sends them all back to the country where Myra, Sal and Lord Griffin have grown up From here it is just plain silly and boring What happened to Joan Smith Joan Smith l ideale per l estate Rinfrescante, direi La storia tenue e bizzarra, ma salvata dal giusto humor.

It has its moments of funny, but overall the romance falls a little flat
