3.0 out of 5 stars OK if there's nothing else around to read 8 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
For me, a Regency romance should be consistent: historically accurate, language of the period, characters to reflect the mores and opinions of their time, characters to act plausibly.

Sorry, but the characters and the outcomes are not plausible within the contexts. The plots are too predictable, and the writing just isn't good enough to make up for the conveyor-belt -like progress of events.
It's the sort of book you feel mildly ashamed of reading. Think Barbara Cartland and you won't go far wrong.

4.0 out of 5 stars More than one story in a single purchase 28 May 2014

I am not a big romance reader, but I am a great fan of Carola Dunn's other (mystery) writing. I also own an electronic reader, so I thought I'd try a couple of her Georgian romances, which are quite inexpensive. In fact, she actually makes her heroines less wimpy and more clever and sensible than the average romantic dishrag. I still don't really like romances, but Carola's are much better than most. And this one actually has two stories in the package.
