When American Tansy, or should I say Ti.., oh, never mind, arrives in England, all sorts of unexpected things happen. She brings out the soft side in a most intimidating Duke, strikes up unlikely friendships with the cook and a local barmaid, and blasts an innocent apple to smithereens. Beneath the angelic facade, she’s a survivor.
Ian is a survivor too, of a bayonet, a run-in with said Duke, and more meaningless romances than he can count.
Julie Anne Long’ s Between the Devil and Ian Eversea let’s us peek into the minds of this twosome as they find out just how much alike they are. The inner monologues are amusing as well as revealing.
This book is part of the Pennyroyal Green series. It stands alone just fine but certainly makes you want to read more about this entertaining village and its other characters.
