1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly Flat, 28 Jun. 2009
This review is from: A Country Miss in Hanover Square (Mills & Boon Historical) (Paperback)
The backcover reads:
Lord Pendleton's Society Wife
In her first season in London, country girl Susannah Hampton is confused by the attentions of the dashing Lord Pendleton. Wealthy, but undeniably arrogant, he is certainly not the kind of husband she had in mind. Although she can't help but find him attractive.
Soon Susannah gets what she hopes for - a marriage proposal! She may be an innocent country miss, but now Susannah is determined to inflame her husband's passion - and melt the ice around his heart.

This is the most exciting bit, unfortunately. I've read many of the M&B Historical Romance series and I have to say that all of them are quite bad. The titles promise so much but the stories are overly long, over-explained, and disjointed. The characters are clumsily and not at all well developed. I think what the editors might have in mind are readers who are new to the genre. But even then, it doesn't explain why the writings are often clumsy and not very sophisticated. The difference is quite remarkable when you read their better crafted Regency High-Society Affairs, or the now defunct Regency Lords & Ladies Collection.

This series from M&B is not worth the money and I have stopped buying them.
