I love Regency romances I am a Georgette Heyer tragic from way back but many of today s efforts are very weak and formulaic This one is neither of those things and I was in my reading element The two main characters were delightful, the conversation was witty and the formula was thrown out the window Guess what no misunderstandings between our purported lovers to separate them and lead them astray In this book our hero and our heroine understand each other from the start and have eac I love Regency romances I am a Georgette Heyer tragic from way back but many of today s efforts are very weak and formulaic This one is neither of those things and I was in my reading element The two main characters were delightful, the conversation was witty and the f

Review UpThere she goes again, Gideon warned his mother You had better stop her quickly unless you want the conversation to revert to fossilsSo I generally try to stay far away from bluestocking heroines in HR, specifically the eccentric kinds simply because they are typically not always written to such a slanted degree that it comes off obnoxious and to be completely honest historically inaccurate Such was the case here My first Amanda Quick book and I can see she likes to g Review UpThere she goes again, Gideon warned his mother You had better stop her quickly unless you want the conversation to rever
A very amusing, entertaining HR read The heroine annoyed me a bit at first, but then I warmed up to her and ended up really enjoying the book.
