Reading Journal Entry: The English Witch, by Loretta Chase

The Loretta Chase binge continues. The English Witch is a sequel of sorts to Isabella, wrapping up the villain on that piece with a nice romance of his own. The charming, rascally Basil spent three years in Greece earning money and redeeming himself, and picks up a gently bred Englishwoman in need of rescuing by way of Albania.

The local color raises this above the level of the general category Regency comedy of manners, but it's constrained enough that Chase's talent isn't really showcased.
