Do not bother buying this book as the story had many flaws and was poorly written.
There are many better authors of historical romances.

What are you, Yankee or Englishwoman? 6 April 2001
By "ketera" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
What are you, Yankee or Englishwoman? Damn, that's a rum touch to have an enemy for a daughter. But Henrietta was no one's enemy. She came to London from Boston in search of her father-a father thought lost to her until she discovered her aunt's treachery. Now armed with her mother's marriage papers, she set sail for England to prove her identity and, unknowingly, to gain a fortune-and a love-she had never dreamed of. Henrietta was too beautiful to ignore. Her wealthy father was enchanted with her. Her stepmother hated her on sight. and her stepbrother Cedric was an enigma. But nothing would stop Henrietta from becoming the talk of London society. At all the elegant parties, at fashionable Almack's, at masquerade balls, everyone was agog with the lovely young American girl. There were a few, however, who longed to see her ruined...
I very much recommend this book to those who love the regency period. A wonderful read and a fine example of regency writing!

so-so historical romance 5 Aug 2009
By Caroline Lamb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this because I have liked some other books by Hodge, and someone said this one was her favorite. I was seriously disappointed. The heroine is too naive to be believed, walking into one mess after another because she's just so good hearted and trusting. She's lived all her life in America, but she cheerfully goes to England while the two countries are at war and never spends a minute homesick for her native land. You might gather that I didn't think much of her, and therefore didn't care what became of her. As to the hero, [plot spoiler] he's barely there--shows up smiling once or twice, then is suddenly The Man of Her Dreams. Really, she's written way more interesting books than this.
Eh... 26 May 2012
By Misfit - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Henrietta makes an unexpected discovery upon the death of her aunt - it turns out her father is very much alive and a powerful Lord at that. With nothing to keep her in Boston, she packs her belongings and proof of her identity and despite the rumors of war looming between England and the States, manages to get herself passage to England. She eventually finds her father after a few ups and downs along the way, and Lord Marchmont is happy to find a daughter (and heir!) that he never knew existed. Lord Marchmont's new wife and her son from a previous marriage are not too thrilled at this turn of events, since Henrietta's status as heir kind of upsets their financial applecart. That's the basics of the story. There's a bit of a mystery here and there, and most of the main players in Henrietta's new life as the toast of London society seem to have secrets within secrets - all of which are waiting for the somewhat clueless Henrietta to wake up and smell the coffee.

Sorry, but this was a bit too predictable for my tastes and it was fairly easy to guess what all those deep dark secrets were. I think the author tried too hard to make the dialogue sound authentic to the period with a bunch of "do you know", as well as an over abundance of commas (although I've been told that's a common thing on that side of the pond). I've heard a lot of good things about Jane Aikens Hodge, but I think I should have started with something different. Perhaps I am just doomed to never find a Regency novel that will work for me. I'll keep on trying...
