"The Dream Dancer" was a sweet, fast, mostly uncomplicated read. Mostly, because Bryce and Rowland both start out problematically: Bryce is a bit spoilt and Rowland is the stereotypical chauvinist rake. It worked, however, because if love is like a battlefield, these two really duked it out and it was entertaining to watch them do so. I wasn't quite sure who to cheer for, which made it all the more fun.
Sticklers for historical accuracy may want to steer clear - the whole thing reads a bit anachronistically, but for the average reader out for a good time, it's not a deal breaker.
