This 7th, an final, book in the 'Fallen Angels' series is, in my opinion, the best! I loved the characters ... and the surprising ending!

Putney writes such good stories in this genre. She captures our interest and keeps it throughout the moves of the plot, and gives us main characters we either love or love-to-hate. The story of Stephen, a good man (and a handsome one, too) and his voyage of self-discovery as he lives through what he knows will be his last days on earth is such a story. With wit and compassion, delightful humor and wry cynicism, Putney tells a story of upper class and middle class and what each learns from the other. You, too, will be caught up in the tale!

I really enjoyed this twist on the traditional romance formula much more than I thought I would. It's a bit of a tearjerker, so have a few hankies handy...

Last book in the Fallen Angels series is the best! Keep the kleenex handy.

I'm still trying to make up my mind about Mary Jo Putney. She was recommended to me as being similar to Brenda Joyce, which, after 2 books, I really can't agree with. Still, this book was enjoyable, exciting, romantic and held my attention. That's worth three stars, in any case.

The plot was unusual as well as highly dramatic: a terminally ill duke runs away from all responsibility, and joins an acting troupe, where he falls in love with a actress who is really [spoiler alert] a lost French duchess.

Cheesy? a little. Gothic? definitely. But my biggest knock on the book was the total lack of development of the female character. The male character had lots of flaws and the progress of the book was taken up with correcting them, while the female character started and ended "perfect". I had the exact same issue with The Marriage Spell, so I'm wondering if it's actually the author.

This is the last book in the Fallen Angel series. I didn't realize that until I was quite a way into it. There were references to characters that I knew had probably had their own stories. However the book is readable on it's own. I enjoyed that the characters liked each other from the beginning versus the standard conflict of wills story line.
