I liked that the hero was a Russian prince. I also liked that Livia wasn't really your run-of-the-mill miss from the ton. Those two things set the book apart from other regencies right away. It also has the characters get married in the middle of the book, which is a trope I like because it provides the characters with a way to get away from all the coquettish flirting and get down to the nitty gritty of what really makes a relationship work. The other trope I like is the pretty woman trope. I'm not sure what it is about women getting new wardrobes and servants that makes me happy, but it does. It was entertaining and I liked spending a few hours with a prince.
