LOVED THIS BOOK 25 Sept. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book I have read by Ms. Butler and loved every word. Diana Exeley is very different from the mealy mouth missish types in so many books. Who couldn't love Romulus Perrin with his gentle strength. Her story is out of the ordinary, from the usual Regency and has some secondary characters that will surprise you. I highly recommend this book and hope to find more written by her. Loved her unexpected ending.

Since Nancy Butler's first book, LORD MONTEITH'S GIFT, was released last year I've awaited another one from this marvelous author. KEEPER OF THE SWANS is no disappointment. It is the story of a very real human being and how life can deal you a hard blow, but also how the touch of another human being can help heal your wounds. Allegra/Diana is delightful in her innocence and worldly in her instinctive ability to know what needs to be done.
I commend Nancy Butler on a wonder second book, an extremely enjoyable read and characters that will stay with me until her next book. Get this one now, you'll keep it forever.

An Exciting Regency!!! 30 Dec. 1998

Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
If you like heroes wounded in body and spirit, heroines with soft hearts and solid characters, adorable critters, enigmatic gypsy matrons and poachers on the Thames...and villains to hiss at... you will love this romance novel.

a regency to get carried away in.... 21 Dec. 2005
By retroredux - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I loved this book. The story was unusual as it's set in the quaint cottege, of the tortured hero Romulus. The heroine, Allergra, is well written and caring.

Most of the other reviewers pretty much summed up this lovely book. But I disagree with two reviewers points.

1-was racy-while this book did have more intimate scenes than most regencies, it was no where near as explicit as most historical or contemporary romances. The scenes are very tastefully written, with love and not just sex, and should not offend MOST readers.

2-the book was melodramactic-I found that it was exciting, and that the action helped to pull all the characters together and finish the story nicely.

This the the second book I've read by Ms. Butler and I highly recommend her.

Great setting, lost points only for being too melodramatic 9 Nov. 2002
By Cilla - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am a sucker for sentimental, touching romance. I really loved the setting, and the parts about the swans were unusual and interesting. The only thing that kind of spoiled the whole effect was that I found the abduction and incarceration of the hero to be too melodramatic for me(and I usually tolerate melodrama well!) It just didn't ring true for some reason. I felt that it was over-done. I do like the writing style of the writer, and will try some of her other books. I probably will keep this book, just because it is unusual, but is isn't one I would tend to re-read as often as some of my other "keeper" books.
