    3 StarsThis was far from a favorite Susan Wiggs, but it wasn't that bad. The story was interesting enough about a woman who can't remember who she is and two men who both claim to be her betrothed. It was an interesting intrigue story, and the ending was very action packed.What bothered me the most was some of the inconsistency in the book. Ian, one of the main characters is Scottish, and often times he speaks with a Scottish accent using Scottish words or slang. Then he won't do it again till a few chapters later. Its like the author suddenly remembered and tossed in those words and phrases. It was a tad annoying because I found myself stopping, wondering what was being said, then realizing it. All in all, not a bad story; but she has done much better historical.

    A sweet, intriguing story with some good bones and character development that was touching & made me smile, but overall a little too lascivious for my tastes. Content Advisory for those curious:Two graphic sex scenes (I don't know how graphic they got as I skipped them once they started), kissing, touching, groping, undressing- etc. you get the picture. There's plenty of sexual remarks & attraction throughout the book. Once Ian tells Miranda about a trick he learned in a brothel- safe to say I skipped over that part- like no-way, I don't really want to know what sex trick you learned in a brothel, buddy! That's just not my jam. The rape of a secondary character is mentioned a few times. There's an attempted rape- get's interrupted. As far as language is concerned, the characters swear a lot "offscreen", and when they do swear in print, which happened quite a bit, they took God's name in vain in various forms. In terms of numbers, I'm guessing around 20-30 times?Overall, I liked the plot- the characters were okay- they didn't wow me but I felt for their plight. I felt it could've gone deeper- but alas, that is not the point to every book, so that's that. Everything was too focused on the sexuality of a relationship, for me to really enjoy "Miranda" to its full potential. It felt unbalanced, considering how much emphasis was put on the physical side of their relationship- though I understand that Ian was doing it to try and get secret's out of Miranda, but still...it just didn't please me. I did appreciate, however, the character development took place in both Ian and Miranda. They grew as characters and their arc was gradual and satisfying to read. They ended off better than they started, despite the rather sketchy journey of their relationship.

    Just when I thought I owned all of Susan Wiggs' books, I discovered this one. What a wonderful read, one that I couldn't put down! I finished it at 3:30 am. Whether Ms Wiggs is writing a historical a contemporary or something in between, it is always magnificent! The first time I ever read one of her books, I told my husband, the difference between hers and other authors' books, is that hers has "substance". With as many as I've read, that opinion has not varied!

    The heroine of this story was super interesting and the backstory was mysterious and intriguing.

    Good story! Begins with a fire and a mystery, who and where is Miranda? As it enfolds and Ian McVane finally finds her after much hunting. After his investigation, he solved the mystery and all ends well after a lot of action!

I enjoyed it. It was a romance with a mystery.

    In Regency London, Miranda Stonecypher is rescued from a burning building by Scottish stranger Ian MacVane to realize she has no memory of herself or her life. The story takes us through their search for her history - -

    Lets just say Susan Wiggs has improved in her writing since this book came out 20+ years ago. I had to force myself to finish.
