I absolutely loved this book - I can't even find the words to describe how much I enjoyed reading it. The last few days it has taken over and I've read it every chance I got and when I couldn't read I was looking forward to the next time I would be able to. This was the first Laura Landon book I've read and it certainly isn't going to be the last. I've recently gotten into historical romances and this was simply excellent. It had everything - a great storyline, great characters (I loved Griff), romance, passion, you felt a real connection with the characters (or at least I did) and it remained interesting throughout. I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Buy it! I know I will certainly be buying her other historical romances. I considered reading this book for such a long time and I wished I'd read it sooner......I've been missing out. I think that says it all. Fantastic read!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Fairly predictable fare but i was just in the mood for some Historical Will-They-Won't-They and this fitted the bill perfectly. Griffen is tortured and Anne has a mind of her own and I knew very quickly where it was all headed but that's all part of the fun of these types of stories...finding out how it's gets there. Plenty of misunderstandings and crossed wires which I usually like but only if it's not solely there for plot conveyance. I liked the chemistry between them both and the little mystery that was woven through it all held my interest. A good story and a fast read.

A romantic story that sweeps you along with a good narrative set among Victorian high society.

Laura Landon brings to feisty characters together in Annie and Griffe. He is charged with taking care of her when her brother dies and she, of course, feels she can survive on her own. They both need eachother's help to deal with life. He feels responsible for her brother's death; she falls for him, but doesn't want to marry a drunk just like her father. There is also a dastardly plot afoot as Anne's cousin, the evil Earl of Brentwood, tries to get his hands on her and her land. Great stuff.

There is one drawback in that quite a few American expressions are used in the story and seem rather strange to the English reader. It might have been better to edit the book more closely for British readers.

Not a bad read, well written with good characters, but storyline little weak and predictable. The heroine came out with some nonsense and the plot was frustrating towards the end but mainly ok.

Although I bought this is April, I only started reading it a couple of days ago.

Storyline - the usual hero wracked with guilt that everyone who live around him end up dying - result - drink oneself to death, if possible and also be guilt-ridden.
Heroine - a lovely spirited lady who had a father who was a drunk - see where I am going with this? Due to the premature death of her brother, she has to marry in order to support herself and her sister.

If I was just looking from the writing's point of view, LL writes well. She is coherent and gets her point across. Certain situations were quite believable. There is detail in the story, descriptive people and their surroundings. It does quite draw one into the story but makes one irritated with a few shallow and contrived bits - like misconstruing what the hero said or what the heroine meant - especially towards the end of the story.

If one can ignore these little niggling bits, it is an okay read.

I really must stop buying these "cheapies". This was as daft as it gets. If Americans are going to write historical novels set in the UK, why can't they go the extra mile and research the language. They would only have to read Jane Austen, George Eliot etc to get the gist.

I really enjoyed this historical romance by Laura Landon. I found the hero Griffen Blackmore a very interesting character, still tormented by the death of his first wife and child he spirals into alcoholism. Although this isn’t the first book i’ve read where the main male character is reliant on alcohol it was the first one that gave an in-depth look at how the hero and heroine deal with the hero’s alcoholism, rather than just brushing over it. For me this gave Griffen deeper characterisation and made me as the reader sympathise with him, Landon did a great job of portraying his torment and grief and as someone who loves angst this was perfect for me.
I also liked the heroine, Anne Carmichael and she definitely had some of the best lines in the book. She was a character who stood up for herself, and knew what she believed in but was still willing to show vulnerability. I thought the relationship between Anne and Griffen both realistic and well paced, growing from mutual respect and desire.
There were of course some elements of the book that I didn’t like hence the four star review. My main issue was how swiftly Griffen got other his alcoholism, certainly when they are married that problem is hardly mentioned again in place of the other main conflict in the book that I won’t mention due to spoilers.
Overall this is a really good regency romance that combines a bit of angst, some humour, good character development and plot.
