5.0 out of 5 stars Soft, elegant and warm., 24 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was very pleased with this item it was all of the above. It was like one of those ones you get at an expensive spa. It is soft to the touch and on my sensitive skin and feels like it will withhold multipal washes. It was well worth the price that I paid which was less than other dressing gowns on the market, I would recommend this to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple and easy clip, 5 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought the magenta and blue one of these clips and they look really pretty and not cheap and plastic. It holds my hair up well (and I have alot of it). I've also worn it with a low ponytail and put the clip on the top above it. The clips stay in well and are exactly the same colours as shown. Very happy with these.

4.0 out of 5 stars Colours, 5 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I brought three of these tops in different colours, the red and the blue were the same colour as the picture but the green one is a lot darker than the green colour shown. The tops are still nice and fit well. Makes a difference to a plain top.

2.0 out of 5 stars Short songs, not all the notes like the songs., 16 Jun. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I would say that although the chords aren't the easiest or even the best for the pieces, the songs were short some not a full verse and chorus, and some of the notes where lets say the singers always go up high when singing it, went low or not even sounding like the film songs, i would not recomend this book, i've seen some of these pieces in different books and they have been a lot better.


The Regency Lords & Ladies Collection Vol 2: My Lady's Prisoner / Miss Harcourt's Dilemma (Regency Lords and Ladies Collection)
The Regency Lords & Ladies Collection Vol 2: My Lady's Prisoner / Miss Harcourt's Dilemma (Regency Lords and Ladies Collection)
by Ann Elizabeth Cree
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Second in the series., 29 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first story 'My Ladies Prisoner' started off well and is quiet saucy for a regency book, the man she captures has her dead husbands ring and there is a lot of flirtation going on as she holds him prisoner in her home till he answers some question. I did enjoy reading this story.
The second story 'Miss Harcourt's Dilemma' was a spin off from the 1st story (in the collection) that Anne Ashley wrote and I thought that it was better than the first. Verity the lead meets again with the man from her early past as a very young lady and they are drawn together again with misunderstandings, heartaches but don't worry it all ends good in the end. Very good read.

The Regency Lords & Ladies Collection Vol 3: Lady Clairval's Marriage / The Passionate Friends (Regency Lords and Ladies Collection)
The Regency Lords & Ladies Collection Vol 3: Lady Clairval's Marriage / The Passionate Friends (Regency Lords and Ladies Collection)
by Paula Marshall
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as the others., 29 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first story 'Lady Clairval's marriage', was a little too violent and bloody for my taste and was more on the outskirts of society, I was glad when I finished that story. The second story dragged at the end and again had lots of violence in it, a bit too dark and dismal. If you like hitting, blood, evilness and murder in Mills and Boon love stories then you will like this book.

Meg Alexander writes a 'conclusion' (a follow on really) in the fourth book in the collection but is set with the children in the 1st story grown up and is a lot better, more plot less gore.

The Regency Lords & Ladies Collection Vol 4: A Scandalous Lady / The Gentleman's Demand: AND The Gentleman's Demand (Regency Lords and Ladies Collection)
by Francesca Shaw
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Both excellent stories., 29 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I can't really put too much more than has already been written, here is my review.

A scandalous lady had the leading lady risking her love and social life to support her family but managed to intrigue a handsome man who she herself was intrigued by. The story flowed and didn't have me thinking that it should of been wrapped up pages earlier.

The gentleman's demand was a darker plot, smugglers involved and high risks. Both worth a read and even a re-read.
Each story is about 280 pages long.

5.0 out of 5 stars A short review of book 5 of the collection., 29 Dec. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The previous reviewer has kindly written what is said on the back about 'The Poor Relation'. Here's what the back page says about the other story:

The Sliver Squire
by Mary Brendan
At twenty-seven, Emma Worthington knew the prospects of marriage were dim, but even that could not persuade her to marry an appalling rake in order to save her father from debt. But there seemed to be no escape from Richard De Quense, and Emma began to wonder: did she really want to hide from the Sliver Squire?

I thought that both stories were very captivating hence the 5 stars. The first is a lady who is doing good works in secret but the love interest gets the wrong idea which causes lots of angry word play exchanged between them. The second story is excellent, with the leading lady just slipping through the mans fingers every time, (the chase) quiet intense in a good way. This is the second best one I have read from the collection and I'm only on book 6.

4.0 out of 5 stars The regency, lords and ladies collection book 6., 29 Dec. 2010

This is what it says on the back cover:

Mistress or Marriage?
by Elizabeth Rolls
Viscount Helford needed to marry and wanted to choose a wife of nobility and decorum-untill his resolve was shaken by the fiery Miss Marsden. If he took her as his mistress, it would tarish her good name-something he knew she couldn't afford to lose. But could he afford to lose her?

A Rouguish Gentleman
by Mary Brendan
Viscount Stratton was renowned for his beautiful mistresses. Owed money by Lady Elizabeth Rowe's family, his only hope of repayment was through her sizeable dowry-and he would have to marry her to claim it! Lady Elizabeth had no desire to wed such a rogue, but had he really pursued their union for revenge...or love?

I liked both stories, both would bring you back to the era (although I wasn't personally there). The first story features a women and her orphaned nephew, both women leads are strong characters. The second story is of one of the characters (a roguish handsom man) taken from Mary Brendan's previous book (book n.o 5 of the collection, the sliver squire) but it wouldn't infringe too much if you hadn't read that one. Great reads although I have found with all of them so far (books 1-6) that it draggs a bit and could all have been a little shorter.

2.0 out of 5 stars A boring read., 22 July 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book is definitely for men although it does not say so. I found that the book tells you about types of seducers but doesn't really help you to become one. In part two of the book called 'the seduction process' it give contradictory advice and anyone trying to do all the things in part two would have an nervous breakdown. To try to explain better it's like reading a book about someone without find out how or why they are like that. I found it boring because of the way it was structured within the book and just too much jargon and not enough getting to the point.
