    • This is a real regency themed novel, not a modern book with characters dressed up in regency clothing while talking and behaving like they had fire between their legs that needed to be put out! If you are looking for anything more than a close mouthed kiss, move on. The best part about this book is the character developments, no one is perfect and everyone has their own particular flaws which makes them unique.


    • DelightfulAnother charming story of the obstacles of true love for the privileged. Harry, Benjy and Lady Ainsworth are the heroes of the tale along with the long suffering, and principled, Leonard.


    • (Not sure about the H's v-status, but he's not "in the petticoat line", he's not a rake, so it's quite possible/reasonable that his vcard is intact) A rake is a licentious bounder who resorts to trickery and lies to get his way with women. Harry, on the other hand, is the most honest and honorable man I've ever known. That's the H's grandmother, who though not impartial, is certainly a good judge.There's abit lotof misunderstanding (h think H is a rake), a silly cousin (who keeps falling in and [...]


    • Definitely a FavoriteThe heroine, Kate is opinionated, stubborn, makes up her mind without recourse to facts and is generally a annoyance. The story opens with her storming into her parlor to berate Lord Ainsworth over a painting that he has stopped by to see, The Girl with the Persian Shawl. She insults and accuses him of all kinds of unworthy actions while the people around her attempt futility to tell her why he's there. This is only the beginning of the things that this girl is indignant abo [...]


    • This was just okay for me, it didn’t blow me away, but it also didn’t bore me. It has some nice moments and I did like our leading man, Lord Ainsworth. At times I felt like it was kind of jumping perspectives a little too much, I usually only prefer two narrators at most. Our heroine Kate isn’t the most likable characters, she gets a little better as the book goes on, but I had a hard time liking her at the beginning. Overall, it kept me reading and I will probably check out other books by [...]


    • I'm a little embarrassed because this is actually a romance, which I disdain unless there's a mystery or a lot of history involved, and because I actually enjoyed it. There is some history, but nothing special and perhaps not even accurate. The aspect that got three stars was that I kept imagining it as a play, a la 'The Importance of Being Ernest', full of twists and turns that could be comic with the right dialog and acting. In spite of being slight hokey, the plot was really quite good.


    • This had a surprisingly intriguing premise -- a sort of round-robin of romance -- but the execution was stale, flat, and conventional. The whole strong-minded-woman-learns-humility-and-finds-romance thing has been done so many times before, so much better; seeThe Clever Woman of the Family by Charlotte M. Yonge for a satisfying Victorian example.


    • I couldn't get through this one. It should be a nice fun romance, but I just got turned off by how rude the main character was. It seems like the author wanted to make her seem independent and modern, but she only seemed to pull off rude and annoying.


    • I enjoyed the book but did find the heroine unlikable for much of the book. It's not my favorite Mansfield book, but it was a quick read and I did chuckle at the humorous bits
