No, no, and again I say no. I’m sorry but this book just did not do it for me at all. There’s just too much going on, and yet at the same time there’s not enough going on in regards to the romance between Joanna and Tony.
I wasn’t going to review this book but after a chat with my husband I decided I should. The reason I wasn’t going to review it, is because it just isn’t a Traditional Regency Romance – but as my husband pointed out, it is being marketed as a ‘Regency Romance’.
I really struggled with this book and how to write this review. On the one hand I wanted to like the unconventional nature of the heroine and how she approached the issue of revenging herself on Lord Whitestone. But on the other hand, it was really too unconventional to be believable.
Marianne is 18 years old and has been brought up very conventionally in the country. Her biggest rebellion is publishing poems under a false name and receiving secret correspondence from Lord Whitestone about those poems.
A story about two childhood friends who might become something more if they can overcome their differences.
Kate Millbank had known David Merritt from the time they were children together. So she was thrilled to hear that the major was returning from the wars. What she hadn’t considered was that war might have changed David into someone angry and bitter. Or that she had no business pining for the illegitimate son of an illicit liaison. But Kate believed in miracles.
A traditional-style Regency Romance but sadly far too many errors in spelling, punctuation, plot and writing style for me to recommend. Miss Katherine Larch has the great disadvantage of beauty. To find employment seems impossible until Mrs Grey from Carrick St Agency provides her with a disguise, and a post in the house of Lord Peirce.
