Seeking: A Cad of a Father

The ton believes Miss Catherine Reynolds has come to London to find a husband. They would be surprised to know her real purpose, or that it was Catherine herself who stole the horse of the dashing Earl of Chatwin practically out from under him (it was an emergency, of course). Catherine has learned that her real father—the scoundrel who broke her mother's heart—is still out there somewhere, and she intends to find him.

Found: An Enchanting Earl

Irritated, intrigued, and highly eligible, John Fines, Earl of Chatwin, finds his name on the tongues of half the ton as they speculate about his mysterious lady horse-thief. Catherine needs to help to uncover the secrets of her birth, but if he becomes embroiled in her quest, he may be in danger of losing not only his horse and his reputation as a charmer, but also his heart.

' I won a free ARC of this book through Goodreads '

The Earl of Chatwin was racing his horse in the park when he literally runs into a woman. He is concerned about her so he puts her on his horse and she steals it. Rather then being mad he is intrigued. He is determined to find this woman and get his horse back. When he finally finds her he wants to get to know her. Not only is he after her affections but so is his Rival.

Lady Catherine was on her way to get her footman to help their groom who has fallen and hurt himself. As her and her sister don't want to be seen out so early she is trying to be quick about it. When a man and his horse run into her and knock her off of her horse. She tells him she needs to borrow his horse. He refuses but puts her on the horse so she borrows it anyways. She can't get the gentleman out of her head though. And when she see's him she makes plans to return the horse. Just in an unexpected way. She now has two men courting her. She only wants to be with one but that is not why she is in London. So she tries to enlist the Dukes help in her mission.

Is the Earl playing with Catherine or does he truly care for her. Will he help her with her mission?

I LOVED this book. I love historical/regency romances. I only planned to read a couple of chapters when I started this book. I ended up reading staying up all night reading this book because I just COULD NOT put it down. I highly recommend reading. I will be reading more of this Authors work!

3.0 out of 5 stars Actually 3-1/2* - Not exciting But Pleasant 7 Sep 2004
By M. Rondeau - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Everyone thinks Catherine Reynolds has come to London to make a match, but she's actually trying to find out which of three men mentioned in her deceased mother's journal is really her father. After three months of fittings for gowns in anticipation of the season, and no progress made in locating the three men who might be her father, Catherine needed to get out and ride to feel the wind in her face. When her groom's horse stumbled in a hole incapacitating him they decided that her sister and guardian, Victoria, would stay with the groom while Catherine would ride back to fetch a carriage. This would have worked out well if Catherine hadn't taken a spill when she ran into another rider. It was love at first sight for the stranger who was there to rescue her but as her later inquiries progressed, she discovered that there was a real possibility that he might just be her half brother!

John Wickenham-Thickenham-Fines, the Fifth Earl of Chatwin, was one of the more sought after bachelor nobles who had escaped being leg-shackled by the best of the matchmaking ton. He found himself clearly intrigued by the beguiling and cheeky miss that he'd almost run down. Her horse having run off, he endeavored to help her back to the stable to retrieve her carriage, but Catherine not wanting to take the chance of being seen before dawn in a gentleman's company had other ideas and ended up stealing his horse and leaving him stranded in the park. Catherine didn't know at the time that he'd been competing in a horse race and had all but forfeited the win to stop and help her. Furious, yet intrigued with the audacious chit who seemed immune to his charms, Chatwin was certain he would find her again along with his prize horse and regain his dignity if it were the last thing he'd do!

This was a pleasant read that had me thinking of another recent novel that uses the vehicle of a `gossip columnist' to fuel the protagonists actions. The search to locate Catherine's biological father in an effort to discover why he never married her mother, was interesting when it led to the door of the man who she fancied herself in love with, but then it seemed to fizzle out with no real joy or excitement generated over the ultimate discovery. The romance was sweet, if not earth shattering exciting, and the secondary characterizations, particularly Andrew (who I predict is soon to have his own story) and the lovely Lady Lynette who had a facial disfigurement, were interesting and well done along with the character of her older sister Victoria who would like a career as a ton matchmaker. While not an overly exciting read, it was somewhat predictable with a lovely romance that saved it with some very nice spicy scenes and cute dialogs. ---- Marilyn Rondeau, for [...] ----

3.0 out of 5 stars A Hint of Seduction 7 Oct 2004
By AK - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
After taking a spill from her horse on a dawn ride in the park, Catherine absconds with the horse that caused that spill. Although the horse's owner was less than copacetic regarding her version of borrowing, John, the Earl of Chatwin and one of the ton's most notorious bachleor's, is intrigued with the mystery lady. Soon, the gossip column is hinting at there being something more to the affair than it is, since the horse in question is John's most prized stallion. Though the earl never really wanted to marry, he begins to rethink things thanks to Catherine. There is just one tiny problem- he might be her brother.

*** Fans of Regency romance will find this a comfortable read with most conventions of the genre observed. For a light and pleasant read, this will not lead you wrong. ***

5.0 out of 5 stars First Taste of Grey 24 Sep 2005
By Angel Izzy - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Catherine Reynolds has lived her entire life in the country, delaying her season for two years while the man she has called father dies. During this time period, she discovers her mother's journals that state that the man Catherine has always called father, is not. There are three names of possible men. While she goes to London for her introduction into society, with the pretext of finding a suitable mate, Catherine determines she will discover the identity of her father.

John Wickenham-Thickenham-Fines (you'll get over it) is a handsome rogue, part of the Terrible Threesome, and consummate ladies man.

On an early morning outing, Catherine's horse nearly collides with John's award winning racing gelding, The General. He's in the middle of a race with a young man who feels slighted because John turned down the opportunity to marry his sister. Catherine is unseated, and when she makes sense of her situation, she "borrows" John's horse to finish her mission.

The incident is blown out of proportion in the scandal sheets. John becomes the laughing stock of the Ton at the mysterious woman seen riding his mount. Surprisingly John lost more than his horse, he finds he's also lost his wayward heart.

The cover of this novel stated that if you like Amanda Quick, Amelia Grey was the next author for you. I'll admit, I was leery of such a claim. Amanda Quick is one of my favorites, and I truly doubted Amelia Grey would contend. Much to my delight, I was mistaken. I loved this book. The characters are warm and genuine. I found several hours past and I was at the end of a fantastic read. I will be buying her backlist (I'll keep you posted if they all match up so well). This is definitely a Recommended Read!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another bestseller! 10 Sep 2004
By Deborah L. Kepler - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Catherine Reynolds is in a bit of a predicament. After riding in the park before sunrise with her half-sister; Victoria, their groom has fallen off of his horse and now Catherine must go for help. Racing back to the carriage, her path is cut off by a rider on another horse. Scaring her horse, she fell to the ground and in the process, got the wind knocked out of her. Mercy, what else could go wrong?!

John Wickenham-Thickenham-Fines, the Fifth Earl of Chatwin cannot believe what had just happened. Where the devil did this young woman come from and what was she doing in Hyde Park before sunrise? Jumping down from his mount, he helps her from the ground, concern clearly written on his face. Just what he needed, a damsel-in-distress! But what kind of distress...that's the question.

Ms. Grey brings us another delightful story of fun, mischief and romance. A Hint of Seduction is all that and more. Catherine and John are wonderful characters! You'll fall in love with their constant bickering, stubbornness and the bond that develops between them. Throw in a full cast of secondary characters, a ghost and a gossip columnist, that just won't give things a rest; and you have a soon-to-be classis Regency romp.

This story is a very easy read with a, "I just can't put it down" feel. This is a top pick for your fall reading and I highly recommend it. Happy reading!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winner! 30 Sep 2004

Hint of Seduction is another charming winner from Amelia Grey. The story is a wonderful Regency romp with a hero who is both strong and kind, and a heroine who is courageous and headstrong. No silly miss here.
