2.0 out of 5 stars Another one bites the dust! 29 Oct 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love a good historical adventure/romance. Sadly, this ebook has some annoying typos and although it attempts to ape Georgette Heyer's masterful use of Georgian phrases, it mixes them with erroneous modern terms.

The reasons behind the Hero agreeing not to marry were valid for the time, but the nature of the courtship between the two main characters fits into the supposed chaste nature of the heroine and the time period rather badly, not to mention that a young nurse of marriageable age and the daughter of a gentleman doctor would never have been left unchaperoned as often as she is. That would ruin her character, even if she was as chaste as saint. In fact the novel makes the same tiresome mistakes, novels of this kind often make in their attempts to appeal to modern tastes and often indulges in the same tired over used adjectives to describe the encounters between the two lead characters.

We live in the time of the pill and a time when most women don't guard their reputations any where near as much as they guard their pin numbers.

Austen was no fool when she referenced the value of a woman's reputation and the damage done if it were lost, particularly in a small country community as is the case in this story. The heroine is not rich, her father is a professional man relying on the patronage and respect of the community in which he lives. Yet he could lose all this if his daughter behaves badly. Of course silly girls do silly things, yet the heroine is portrayed as sensible, intelligent and aware of her fathers great need for patronage. So we must conclude the poor pitiful creature cannot control her passions.

4.0 out of 5 stars A delightful story 21 Mar 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Returning home from the war with a wounded leg, Lord Nicholas Huntington isn't expecting to find a lovely nurse on his father's estate. Not only does Miss Kittridge possess a most delicate touch, but something about her intelligent mind and fiery heart makes Nicholas want to take her in his arms, unfortunately he vowed long ago not to marry.
At 27 Charlotte Kittridge is considered and old maid, but in Lord Huntington's presence she feels like a schoolgirl again. Now Charlotte the daughter of a most talented physician finds herself nursing the hope that Nicholas will someday return her love.
Now if your thinking oh no not another man sworn off marriage..... don't be put off this book because the author has given him a real reason for his vow (a very real reason in those days).
Part of the plot includes a wicked stepmother, whilst light-hearted moments come from Charlottes cousin Alexandre Barclay now Lord Gaston who is ½ French and you have to adore him.
To me the authors 'voice' came across as very soothing, like the story was being told to me by someone who's voice I could listen to all day, as she mixes love, laughter and sorrow into a perfect blend.
And to top it all off everyone has 'normal' names which I found very refreshing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sophia Nash breathes life into her characters. 13 May 2005
By Detra Fitch TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Set in 1814. Lord Nicholas Huntington returns home wounded from the war in hopes of seeing his father who is near death. His father continues to live thanks to Dr. Kittridge, the most talented physician in all of Europe. As the good doctor cares for his father, the doctor's daughter takes care of Lord Nick. All Lord Nick wishes to do is return to the war and leave everything else to his half brother, Lord Edwin. Dealing with his stepmother and Edwin is just more than Nick can seem to stomach.
Miss Charlotte Kittridge is proud to be her father's nurse. She knows she is not pretty and accepts that she is long past her prime. She wants only to learn from her father and help care for his patients. When Lord Nicholas arrives unconscious and then slightly delirious, she jumps into her nurse role, even against her patient's wishes. Charlotte is attracted to the man, but keeps her distance and treats him like any other patient. She and her father are kept busy tending the two lords. Yet Fate gives them an added burden anyway. Charlotte's cousin, "Alexandre" Lord Gaston, arrives in all his flirting glory.
Lord Nicholas finds his eyes searching out Miss Charlotte far too often. Her delicate touch and intelligent mind keeps him fascinated. Even though he is drawn to the lady, he must keep his distance. He promised his father that he would never marry. Yet seeing Alexandre vie for Charlotte's passion is just too much for him to handle.
***** Once again author Sophia Nash entices readers to lose themselves within her latest regency novel. And once again I find myself extremely glad that I did. There is much more going on than I am able to reveal without spoilers and quite a few more characters, each with their own unique personality. The people are so believable that I feel as though I actually know them. Sophia Nash breathes life into her characters in a way so few authors can. Highly recommended reading. *****
