Here is an enjoyable story combining intrigue & romance. It kept me wondering how the mystery was going to be solved. While there is some tragedy, there was still the expected happy ending that was brought about quite neatly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Filled with danger, excitement, and betrayal... 30 Sep 2003
By Detra Fitch - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Brandon Pellidore, Marquess of Hartley, had to be careful. His family line was reported to have insanity. All who died due to it did so by age thirty. Therefore, Brandon would only receive his inheritance if he lived until age thirty without showing any of the insanity symptoms. Thirty was only a couple months away. Because Brandon was so careful and stand-offish around others, the Ton gave him the title "Lord Heartless". It gave Brandon the reputation he preferred. Then he met Celia Rider.
Celia was drawn to Brandon, even though she was promised to another. She was able to see behind his mask. Her title for him was "Lord Oberon". Brandon learned that Celia had been informed that her late father had left her penniless. Knowing it to be untrue, Celia was on a quest to locate her missing inheritance and find the thief. Brandon insisted on helping. Their investigation began to make someone nervous enough to attempt murder.
***** An incredible romance filled with danger, excitement, and betrayal. There is much more going on than my synopsis reveals between the main hero and heroine. In addition, there are several secondary characters that captured my attention from the start. Tantalizing sub-plots keep the story moving along at a fast pace. Read this! Can I make it any clearer? *****

4.0 out of 5 stars Great story, but complicated connections 2 Oct 2012
By Jennie - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I really enjoyed this story. The characters are well written, and I cared about what happens to them in the story. There is an element of mystery concerning whether the hero will succumb to a mental illness that seems to run in the family. The mystery is resolved by the end of the story. I was not able to figure the mystery out ahead of time, which is always nice.

The reason I cannot give five stars is because the family relationships between the characters were hard to follow. I actually started sketching a family tree on a piece of paper in order to understand how the characters were related. There were both relationships of blood and marriage and sorting it all out detracted from my enjoyment of the story. If the author could put a simple diagram into the story, explaining relationships, that would be wonderful!

This story does not contain any sexually explicit scenes. My teenage daughter read this story and also enjoyed it. (I gave her a copy of my relationship diagram, to help her avoid confusion).

I really do recommend this story. It is a keeper and one that I would re-read. I have the paperback version.

I do agree with one reviewer that said the family relationships were a little confusing but as I kept reading I understood it.

Mr. Arlington is demanding that Brandon Pellidore, Marquess of Hartley, tell him where his fiancee, Miss Celia Rider is. When Brandon discovers he most likely is a guardian to the Rider siblings, he decides to find her and learn more about her supposed fortune.

Secrets and mystery unfold as Brandon and Celia learn of the missing fortune. The pace picks up at the second half and I found myself intrigued as to who likely is stealing her fortune and the motives behind it. Very well developed characters and the story contained a few twists and turns. The Marquess of Hartley is even keeping his own family secret and can not inherit his fortune if he succumbs to it.

The romance was nicely developed as well with even a secondary romance. I liked how the main characters must learn to trust each other.

Entertaining, clean Regency read

2.0 out of 5 stars CORNY ENDING 27 Jun 2014
By thatrater - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
I read somewhere that Regina Scott writes Christian books; so I decided to give Perfect a try. It is free of supernatural elements and profanity. ***SPOILERS AHEAD*** At one point the heroine, despite being engaged to somebody else, threw herself at the hero, and soon after realized that, thanks to his gentlemanly behavior, she kept her virtue. Later she ended up at a wild party (i.e., she got her fanny patted by the paid help, couples were,copulating, and she had a close encounter with Death). For some reason, though, I trucked on through.

Because the heroine & her nemesis both seemed like clever women, I had great hopes for this book. I found the ending very disappointing, though. The time that elapsed from when I figured out what the problem was to when the hero & heroin put their heads together and figured it out seemed very great, especially in comparison with the time from then to when they dealt with the problem, which suddenly seemed to become very (as in fall apart) easy. I felt very unsatisfied.
