"Brockway's respect for her audience is apparent in her latest Victorian. The rare story introduces
social issues without preaching, characters who are well developed, and enough passion, humor and
pathos to satisfy most readers… Although completely different in tone from her broodingly intense
All Through the Night, this is another romance for grown-ups."

"If you haven't tried Brockway before, then this is the book to start with. A definite keeper. My
Dearest Enemy is a book that will make you laugh, cry, and leave you breathless with wonder at
the power of love! Brockway writes intelligent romance. Heartwarming and Glorious! Intensely
satisfying! My Dearest Enemy has wit, charm, and chemistry mixed with an intelligent love story
featuring characters that will leave readers begging for more. Avery and Lillian are a hero and
heroine to fall in love with."

"Lighter than the darkly erotic All Through the Night, My Dearest Enemy also shows
Brockway's range and versatility: she can write humor and delightfully witty repartees, too. With
a cast of interesting secondary characters and all sorts of possibilities for a sequel, I'm hoping
that this is the first of a series.
In my review of All Through the Night, I suggested that readers "try" Connie Brockway. I
think I should state it more plainly: if you're not reading Connie Brockway, you're missing one
of today's top writers of historical romance."
