4.0 out of 5 stars 4stars overall, 24 Nov 2010

This review is from: The Devil's Delilah (Hardcover)
In a nutshell: The daughter of a notorious member of Society is determined to stop her father from publishing his scandalous memoirs. To help her in this goal is a bookworm who seems far too muddled to be a proper hero.

My opinion: Not your typical run-of-the-mill romance hero, Jack Langdon is neither dashing nor scandalously improper. Not until he meets Delilah Desmond, that is. She seems to bring out his wild side in a delightfully amusing way. She is the daughter of a man known as Devil Desmond, a man who was scorned by Society for marrying an actress. Having been given the example of two very unconventional parents, she is predictably unconventional herself. And yet, I did not find her to be annoyingly belligerent, or "know-it-all" as so often happens with heroines of her nature. These were two characters I quite liked and found myself rooting for. Delilah's father is one of the best "dark" characters I've ever read.
4stars overall. It is very well-written, with plenty of little historical details. This story is connected to Viscount Vagabond, the heroes being friends, and I found that, while I really enjoyed Jack's story, comparatively it lacked something that I can't quite put my finger on...

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, 25 Mar 2013

Although not Ms Chase's best, this in an enjoyable read and the seemingly muddled, head-in-a-book hero works very well - as does Delilah with her difficulties over correct behaviour. I'd have been happy to have seen more of Delilah's father - I got the feeling that, twenty years ago, he'd have been rather good hero material.

Enjoyed myself. Was quite well written and had a nice, amusing plot with a twist. Kept me reading, wanting to know how it would end, although it was obvious, of course.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good old fashioned Regency, 12 Feb 2013

This review is from: The Devil's Delilah (Mass Market Paperback)
A little old fashioned by todays standards but the characters well drawn and sympathetic.The name Delilah i am afraid kept bringing on mental images of Tom Jones which maybe coloured my appreciation of the story!
