Spell check at its worst. Tons of wrong words due to word completion and whoever set up the digital copy not paying attention. I will be requesting a refund. Story was ok but characters not believable. Not happy with my experiences buying digital copies of Cameron on Amazon so far.

Love Stella Cameron and several of her series of books of which More and More is a book in a series.
Daigrel
A mysterious personage wishes to rid his/her family home of *gasp* boarders so he/she devises a plan to have the young people married off and out of the house. The first in this series involves Finch More, who, along with her brother, runs an antiquities business. Viscount Ross Kilrood is the next door neighbor who has retained the services of More & More to secure some packages that, when united, comprise an artifact very valuable to a small foreign municipality. Both the interference of this mysterious personage and the villains who wish to secure the artifact for their own purposes complicate this matter.
Although this plot seems quite straightforward, the various personages involved do not always act with cohesive motivations. It seems the characters change their behavior in order to advance the plot, and not in a way that one would expect from the established qualities of their personalities. Also, the final climactic scene was confusing, as motives and connections were revealed that I felt had not been at all hinted at. For instance one individual who had acted quite villainously was revealed to have been a good guy all along, which didn't really play for me. However, the intrigue did wrap up at least satisfactorily with few ends still loose.
In addition, Stella Cameron writes some of the best sex scenes I've ever read. As I've gotten older, I've tended to skip those parts, but I read straight through every one of hers.
To address the aforementioned `mysterious personage:' Cameron has employed the device of revealing this person's thoughts to the reader through a series of italicized chapters written almost in the style of a letter. This was confusing as I thought this person was employing other people, possibly another character in the story, to assist him/her in his/her goal. However, I currently believe the missives are directed at us, the readers, although I am still not sure. Also, Cameron includes some `historical' information at the end designed, I believe, to induce us to regard this series of tales as `true.'
I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series, especially as the identity of this mysterious personage, as that was not revealed in this first volume.
Mysterious Wrench
In the past, I have read a number of Ms. Cameron's contemporary novels and enjoyed them. Preferring historicals, I picked up More and More, but I just could not get into the plot. There were many times I was so frustrated with the writing style that I was tempted to not finish the book at all. I persevered, hoping it would get better, and it didn't. There was very little cohesion between paragraphs, let alone chapters. I found myself jumping from place to place, trying to figure out what happened or was currently happening. The relationship between Finch and Ross also confused me. Hot, cold, professional, lovers and all within a few days. True, they had known each other for a few months, but only in passing. Their relationship only grew in the few days which the story takes place. Virtual strangers who partake in some pretty hot, explicit sexual preludes, but when the time comes to make love, he carries her off to his room....and awaken the next morning. From what preceded this scene, I was vastly disappointed.
One redeeming feature to the story is the structure of the characters themselves. Finch and Ross are fairly well developed and we get to know each one, their motivations and indecisiveness. Finch is refreshingly open about herself and her feelings, though I can't help to feel that she is a late 20th century woman plunked into the early nineteenth century. Her behavior is not well suited for the setting of the story. Although we learn what makes Ross "tick", I never feel like I get to know him. Whereas in most books I feel like I know the lead characters, am somehow become their friends, that feeling of familiarity is lacking. The secondary characters, those at number 7, number 8, and Hayden add spice to the story and compliment it well.
I thought our narrator of the story quite an interesting twist, but once again, disjointed and uncomfortably written. You never quite knew what was going on until the end. Who was this disembodied voice? The author, a character, and how did they know what was going to happen? Though a fascinating literary device, I did not like its execution. All in all I do not recommend this book, stick to some of Ms. Cameron's other novels.
