Yet another contemporary in regency clothes but I couldn't manage to finish it The heroine's husband worked for the hero's secret service agency which is known as the Nexus which makes me think of Android products rather than the early nineteenth century and in conseuence didn't see his wife for several years straight which I guess is supposed to make us okay with the fact that his boss almost immediately starts romancing his wife and his wife is interested but really just makes all the interpersonal relationships in this book feel as thin as cardboard There are just too many anachronisms and tone problems and the characterizations aren't strong enough to overcome that DNF
