Product Description

Product Description

Lady Kate Derramore and the Marquis of Northbrooke have one thing in common: In order to receive their inheritances, they must marry. Lady Kate, prevented from marrying the man she loves by her father’s will, determines to marry for convenience. With the forthrightness for which she is noted, she sets her sights on Jack—aforesaid Marquis. Jack, meanwhile, has tumbled into love with Kate at their first meeting. All might have gone swimmingly, were it not for his “other life,” the mysterious job that calls him out of town at the most inopportune moments. Unwittingly, he puts Lady Kate’s life in danger, and while attempting to rescue her comes up against her “reins-grabbing” nature. Will he ever be able to master Lady Kate? Will he ever be able to oust another man from her heart? And, despite Kate’s penchant for disaster, will he be able to save her life and his own?

If you liked The Duke's Undoing, you'll love The Taming of Lady Kate

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, Sweet Read and Free on KU 5 Dec 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
This the second book in the Six Rogues and Their Ladies Series. The first book is The Duke's Undoing (Six Rogues and Their Ladies Book 1). I actually read the third book Miss Braithwaite's Secret (Six Rogues and Their Ladies Book 3) before I read this one, so decided to fill myself in on what I had missed. After reading this book, although it was a cute story, it wasn't anything to roar about.

I did like Kate's personality. She was feisty, loyal and not afraid to stand up and be counted although once in awhile she did stand up for the wrong thing. Although she believes she has given away her heart to a young Italian who she met when her father took her on a trip to the Continent, she's in a mad race to get married. The primary reason being the pressing need to rescue her young brother, who stutters, from Eton where she believes he will be tormented socially and physically. Coincidentally, Jack, Marquis of Northbrooke needs a wife and when horror of horrors, Caro - his lifelong best bud and neighbor turns him down, he's at an impasse... until he meets the lovely Kate. At which time, Caro and thoughts of all others fly right out of his mind.

But, Jack has another life, in which he plays or works if you will, for the government. This job complicates his budding relationship with Kate in more ways than one. Eventually, their lives clash in such a manner both good and bad, it's actually laughable. Their shenanigans and personalities come through in a sweet and cute manner. I'm about to talk myself into giving this book four stars, but no, I'll stick with the three. Hey, if you have Kindle Unlimited, it's free to you and it's a good, sweet read.

3.0 out of 5 stars An Ok Regency Not as Good as The Duke 's Undoing 1 Feb 2013
By Becky - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I probably should have given myself some time between the prequel and this novel. I was much taken by The Duke 's Undoing and I found myself comparing the Heroes. Jack, the H of this novel, seems very very young at the beginning. I do not recall him from the first book and I found it very hard to equate him with Peter, the Duke. It jarred me out of the story because the sunny Corinthian we meet in the first chapter turns suddenly into a rakish spy-catcher leading a double life. I could never see the hero as a mature male, I kept seeing Peter instead. If I had been given some sort of age reference or had Peter make mention of being friends with Jack, it by which I mean describe their friendship with helpful anecdotes, it might have been easier to believe. I loved Kate. I didn't really love the Shakespeare references and the parallels were rather pointed. It wasn't a bad read in and of itself, I think making it part of this series hurt it because the characters come out of nowhere and have no references from the first book to assist the reader. Recommended for all Regency Romance lovers.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not So Great As I Expected 3 Mar 2013
By AUPoohBear - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I have lukewarm feelings towards this novel. Neither of the lead characters are appealing. Kate acts like a shrew the whole time and never gives Jack a break. Jack's character changes abruptly after the initial introduction. When he is introduced he seems like an immature boy. We're then told he's a noted Corinthian and a rogue but I am not sure what makes him so because he's never seen doing anything that goes along with either of those personas. Then all of a sudden he has his own sub plot that really doesn't seem likely for the young man the reader is first introduced to. It confused me a lot and I had to make sure I didn't skip any pages or even a whole book. Jack and Kate never talk about their true feelings even in the rare moments they have a chance. The plot seems like it's the usual mystery involving spies and smugglers but it takes more twists and turns that I didn't expect. I liked the brief cameo appearances by characters from the first novel. Another plus is that it's more clean than the previous book in the trilogy. There are some sensual scenes but nothing smutty. Overall, this story didn't thrill me. I didn't hate it, but I didn't love it.

I noticed a number of errors in the Kindle edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars really terrible 22 Aug 2013
By Trixie1 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I thought "The Taming of Lady Kate" was terrible. Filled with words that don't mean what the author must think they mean, and annoying over-use of Regency era slang to create pseudo-authenticity. But the real problem was the improbable plot and the ridiculous characters. It seemed like the author threw in every plot device that ever appeared in a historical romance novel. I am rarely moved to write a review, but this was so amateurish that I couldn't believe the other reviews that were posted, and I wanted put a dissenting comment in the mix.

2.0 out of 5 stars disappointed 19 Mar 2014
By Jonesy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In the past I have read a couple of G. G. Vandagriff's books with the genealogist protagonists and enjoyed them, so when I saw this book I down loaded it to my kindle. It was so disappointing that I wished I could delete it. The characters were shallow, silly and completely out of character for the period. The editing was sloppy--at one point the hero rides from London to Devon (Does she mean Dover?) in one night, arriving before midnight. I read that paragraph three times to make sure that I hadn't misread. Someone should have caught that. It was so inane that I didn't bother to finish it. I gave it two stars because writing any book is a huge undertaking and some of the problems should have been rectified by an editor. I also gave her good marks for lack of gratuitous gore and no graphic sex--at least none that I saw. I wish I could recommend this, but can't and I hope she returns to the standard of writing in her earlier books.
