5.0 out of 5 stars I can highly recommend this book.
I really enjoyed reading this book, as I have all of Gaelen Foley's other books. Set in the Regency period, but slightly different to the usual Regency romances, the story centres around England's top spy and an innocent young woman, who for once is not an empty headed miss looking for a husband. I particularly liked the way that the author gradually lets the character of...

2.0 out of 5 stars Laughably badly written
The characters are poorly written and the plot is terribly cliched. Add to that a host of anachronisms or Americanisms which should have been picked up by the author or an editor. For example, various references to eating muffins for breakfast; the balls of a billiard game being the type that would be used for a game of pool; saying the Gunpowder Plot was a Jacobite plot...

5.0 out of 5 stars I can highly recommend this book., 7 Feb 2002
This review is from: Lord of Fire (Mass Market Paperback)
I really enjoyed reading this book, as I have all of Gaelen Foley's other books. Set in the Regency period, but slightly different to the usual Regency romances, the story centres around England's top spy and an innocent young woman, who for once is not an empty headed miss looking for a husband. I particularly liked the way that the author gradually lets the character of Lord Lucien (the spy) unfold, allowing the reader to really get to know him, for he is not the person he first appears to be. The story is filled with secrets, seduction and scandal, the reader is also introduced to Damien, Lucien's identical twin brother who I am looking forward to reading more about in Lord Of Ice.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great read from Foley..., 19 Jun 2006
I think I'm becomming addicted to Gaelen Foley's novels as after reading THE DUKE, I couldn't wait to read this, the next book in her KNIGHTS MISCELLANY series. You don't have to have read THE DUKE first as each of these books stands on its own even though Foley is writing about the same family.

As with THE DUKE this is another very sexy read and Foley is great at combining strong sensual romance with a page-turning dramatic adventure plot...

Much enjoyed!Onto the next!

The characters are poorly written and the plot is terribly cliched. Add to that a host of anachronisms or Americanisms which should have been picked up by the author or an editor. For example, various references to eating muffins for breakfast; the balls of a billiard game being the type that would be used for a game of pool; saying the Gunpowder Plot was a Jacobite plot (the king being targetted was the great-grandfather of the James the Jacobites wanted to restore the throne!). I'll forgive using fish and chips as a password long before fish and chips came together, because it did make me giggle, but really the whole thing came across as a pastiche, rather than a serous attempt to write a regency romance

4.0 out of 5 stars great fun, 7 Nov 2007

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is the story of lucien knight and alice montague. They are thrown together and in true romance novel style instantly fall into bed together against her better judgement. lucien knight is a spy and his nemesis tracks him down and this puts lucien's family in danger. This mkaes both lucien and alice realise that they cant live without each other.

this novel also introduces lucien's twin brother damien and sets up his story in the follow on novel Lord of Ice. Although both novel can stand alone in their own right i would recommend to read lord of fire first as this will help with understanding so of the people, events etc mentioned in lord of ice.

great fun with spies, espionage, adventure, romance, some laughs and some very saucy parties, every thing for a great read.

A purchase on behalf of my wife. She is a great fan of these period novels and confirms that all the books are an excellent read with good storylines ( as long as you are a fan of period dramas of course).

4.0 out of 5 stars Exciting, 17 Mar 2003
By A Customer
This review is from: Lord of Fire (Mass Market Paperback)
The book tells about two people who meet in a mystirious way, Lucien and Alice, and fall in love. So many secrets and still love is possible. You only have to trust. It never becomes boring, and ties you up, if not indetifying yourself with the heroes themselves. The good thing is that not only sex but also the story itself is intriguing. All in all a wonderful and secretive book to read.
