So I played this game a while ago, I'm quite frustrated and can't believe that I actually didn't comment on this?
Regarding the history and the setting of the novel, I found it to be incredibly realistic. I enjoyed the choices you were given and how you could essentially decide what type of personality you wanted in Sophia. A lot of the choices were very true to the time period as well, rather than slang phrases etc.
Also, I'm a huge sucker for historical romances idk why.
Based on my memory (from the last time I played it), I pursued Lord Isaac first. Idk he seemed like a real man like real beef so I went ahead and got him. Personally, I liked his story the best. It was 100% more in depth than the other characters, and there was a lot of backstory towards his character, which I really enjoyed. It was clear that a lot of thought was put into this, and his story provided a lot of details. AND REALLY CUTE SCENES BUT THAT'S BESIDES THE POINT.
The second character was Captain Guy Blake, and although his route was interesting and sweet, it felt kind of cliche. The whole, "i work hard but not accepted" plotline was relatively mild compared to Lord Isaac. There was also a time when I was really frustrated at him because he became stoic af again?????????? Like I was really annoyed like pls you are not the only one with problems here. Overall, Captain Guy is 100% boyfriend goals and 100% sweet husband goals. As a character, pretty well rounded.
I want to apologize because I'm so sure that your team puts so much time and effort into cranking out another special route for Amesbury, but I honestly really disliked his storyline. But I must commend your ad(?)/announcement poster for him. It was really spicy LOL. His route was so predictable :'( There was a really great storyline happening and it was really dramatic, quite more dramatic than the other ones, but the predictability of him being that secret sneaky mugger (I can't remember his secret name! I'm sorry!) was way too out there, and I personally felt myself a little irked when Sophia couldn't put two and two together. What I really did like at the end was (I can't remember his name for the life of me, I think it was LAwrence? Laurent?) But the other extremely attractive man that was trying to keep Sophia away from Amesbury-----I enjoyed that plot twist when another person came out and posed as Amesbury, effectively injuring Arabella. That was a really nice twist, and although I kind of saw it coming from him, I didn't know why he did such a thing. I honestly thought he was gay for Amesbury but that's another point for another time.
Overall, The Lady's Choice is definitely something I'd read again, and something I have recommended many times to my friends. Kudos to you for accomplishing such a wonderful and well-rounded project!
Cheers to more historical VN's like this!
