1.0 out of 5 stars Romance Not Regency, 10 May 2011
This review is from: His Wicked Kiss: Number 7 in series (Knight Miscellany) (Paperback)
I am quite surprised by the number of good reviews that this author has received for this series. It's billed as a Regency romance but in reality it's not much more than a Mills and Boon with a historical picture on the cover. It's about as Regency as..... well to be honest - as Regency as me, sitting here, typing this in the 21st Century. It just don't cut the Regency mustard. Both the hero and heroine have incredibly 20th Century sensibilities and throwing in a random (and sometimes incorrect) reference to a 19th Century mannerism or custom or outfit description quite frankly doesn't work. In fact it makes it ridiculous and that is pretty much my opinion of this book. Another thing that I find quite staggering is that the small synopsis of the plot on the back doesn't actually happen in the book. I honestly don't think I have ever come across this before nor can I fathom such a glaring error would escape notice but I think it shows the level of publication that we are dealing with. In summary: If you want an accurate (and delightful) Regency romance novel then I suggest Heyer who got it so right. If you want a steamy, adjective laden sexploits where the hero and heroine writhe around in uncontrollable passion whilst still managing to spout paragraphs to each other about how deep and pure their love is all set loosely (and I mean loosely) about 200 years ago then this is the book for you.
