Lord Perfect continues the tales of the Carsington brothers, sons of the Earl of Hargate, and stars the eldest, Benedict, Viscount Rathbourne, widower, businessman and political activist. His behaviour is so far above reproach that he is nicknamed Lord Perfect. So perfect, in fact, that when a friend has a problem with Lord Lisle, his unruly son, Benedict looks after him whilst his parents decide on their next move. Things become a little less pristine, however, when he meets Bathsheba Wingate, member of the dreadful DeLucey family, a widow with a young daughter, Olivia. They meet when their young charges get into a fight at an exhibition of ancient Egyptian artifacts; they both initially ignore their mutual attraction due to Bathsheba's unfairly dreadful reputation, but pretty soon Benedict is rationalising that Bathsheba would make an excellent art teacher for Lisle. Struggling with poverty after her noble family and in-laws all reject her, she rationalises that it would be foolish to refuse such welcome income. All very well, but then Olivia and Lisle run away to find hidden treasure. Olivia is clearly a chip off the old DeLucey block, and the sub-plot between her and Lord Lisle is delightfully comic. Bathsheba and Benedict are thrown together when they chase after the children, and it is not long before the sexual attraction between them becomes harder and harder to resist, and soon Lord Perfect is being very far from perfect, to Bathsheba's guilty pleasure.

What makes Loretta Chase so special for me is her idiosyncratic way of writing and her wonderful humor. For example, Bathsheba and Benedict repeatedly bump into each other.

Review taken from my Blog Post (#78) in January 2011, after borrowing from the local library.

It was so nice to read another Loretta Chase work ........... sheer genius ............ I love her style.

Although I have only read two others before, both of which were stories of this hero's brothers.

This time it was the turn of the "Perfect" (and so different from his brothers) Lord Benedict Carsington, heir to the Earl of Hargate and beautiful widow Bathsheba Wingate.

Bathsheba is determined to provide a worthy upbringing for her daughter, but the hoyden Olivia has other ideas.

Bathsheba's first meeting with Benedict is at the British Museum where Olivia lays about his young Nephew, Lord Lisle, with a sketchbook. Things go from bad to worse when the young pair then strike up a clandestine correspondence and run away to find the Disgraceful DeLecey family treasure.

It falls to Benedict and Bathsheba to bring them back without falling into the trap of their own utter attraction to one another, and causing a scandal ......... as if!!!

A worthy 5 Star read as always with this author. I need more of her books, but sadly some of them are out of print and not available at the library, so fingers crossed I can track them down - I especially don't want to miss the stories of the other remaining brothers.

Format: Paperback
I adored all the Carsington Brothers series with Mirabel and Alistairs story vying with Daphne and Rupert's for top spot. (Don't get me wrong- I also adored Charlotte and Darius' story.) However, I got round to reading Lord Perfect last.

Lord Perfect a.k.a widow Benedict Carsington, Viscount Rathbourne is a model of perfection. I can imagine how strenuos this is for him so its a reliefe when all his collected cool unravels after meeting widow, single mother and raving beauty Bathseba Wingate of the Dreadful DeLucey's. Both the hero and the heroine are strong characters and as usual I was particularly drawn to the heroine but what made the book outstanding was her little terror of a daughter- Olivia and Benedict's brother in laws son Lord Lisle.

Little Lord Lisle is a logical, little man who needs order and rules and who dreams of wonder going to Egypt and uncovering its secrets. Olivia Wingate is a whole different animal- she's a Dreadful DeLucey, a wondeful mimic and trickster, she can unpick locks, cheat at cards, act out any scene and she's fearless. She views people as Marks, is constantly coming up ith Ideas and is always in search of a Noble Quest. She's a joy and her letter in particular are a thing of beauty. After the deathof her father- a nobleman who was cut off from his family for marrying Bathseba she is determined to help her mother and in her opinion the way to do this is to travel to Bristol to discover her ancestors treasure. Somehow she strong arms Lisle into going with her.

As the two adults chase after the children- and just as a note if I had a daughter as skilled as Olivia in getting from London to Bristol I'd be a wreck.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the third book in a quartet of Georgian romances in which each book is better than the one before.

The first book in the series, "Miss Wonderful (Carsington Quartet 1)" is a better than average regency romance.

The second, "Mr Impossible (Carsington Quartet 2)" set in Egypt just after the end of the Regency period, is a highly entertaining romp which is a bit like a version of the film The Mummy [DVD] [1999] set 150 years earlier and with the supernatural bad guys replaced by mortal but evil and dangerous gangs of tomb raiders.

The third and fourth volumes, this book "Lord Perfect" and "Not Quite a Lady," are very funny and intensely moving respectively.

There is a fifth story following on from the Carsington quartet and set a few years later. The central characters are the two children from this book who by that time have grown up: it is called Last Night's Scandal.

Lord Hargate, a distinguished politician, had five sons, which we are told was "three more than he needed". The first two were sensible and responsible and soon married and settled down.
