I love Amanda Scott's books. I don't think there is one that has been a miss for me. This one did take me a bit to get into but I did love it once I did.
I really liked Daintry. She was such a strong and vivid character in a not-overbearing way. She was a feminist and she was smart. I wonder how Daintry ended up so sensible with her blockheaded family. I really made a connection to her and I really didn't expect to. I loved Gideon as well. I didn't quite make the connection to him that I did to Daintry but I did like him and he was a great hero. Perhaps not a favorite but definitely good.
I was surprised at how much I loved this book once I got into it. It did take me a while but that was my fault. It was very stop and start reading and I am, quite frankly, not used to that. I loved Daintry and Gideon together. Both characters individually were great but together they were amazing. I also loved the historical accuracy in terms of women and how they were treated and expected to behave. I always appreciate a good bit of historical accuracy in my historical romance. In fact, Dangerous Illusions read to me more like a historical fiction and I really really liked that a lot.
I don't know if this goes on my favorite book list but I did enjoy it.
