I've never read this author before so I thought I'd give one of her books a try. I'm so glad I did! What a gem!

Great characterisation and believable characters. There is some sensuality in this book, but no overt sexuality, which I prefer.

I loved the heroine Hannah, who seems forever to be getting into scrapes and whose sister despairs of ever being a lady. I read this book from cover to cover really quickly, it had me hooked and I wanted to know what would happen next.

If you love Regency Romance and Georgette Heyer, then this book will pleasantly surprise you.

Another good tale ruined by poor research and lack of attention to detail .

"Good night , pumpkin"? In nineteen in century England? Even for most of the twentieth century they were only known from fairy stories, like Cinderella, and while "French kissing" (tongues) was known in Regency times, particularly in more "informal" relationships, it would certainly not have been tried by any gentleman on first approach to a gently bred maiden. I can remember my wife telling me about a contemporary of hers, even as late as the 1950s, who actually vomited the first time a boy tried to put his tongue in her mouth!

From somewhere near Oundle to "north of Lincoln" in under two hours? It's over 70 miles, for heaven's sake. No cartilage could average more than 35 miles an hour, even over modem paved roads let alone rural English roads in the early nineteenth century. Such a trip would have been a major expedition and taken the most of a day. Even a man on the back of a thoroughbred would not plan to do much more than fifty miles in a day.

Read the book by all means, but be prepared to be brought back to earth with a jarring thump every few pages.

A wonderfully charming book! I finished it with a happy sigh and a "feel-good" feeling. Very highly recommended!

Really enjoyed reading the whole of this book. I can't believe I've only just found this author. This was like a breathe of fresh air after the many badly-written so called regency romances I've read. I'm a massive fan of Barbara Metzger so immediately warmed up to this author who has a similar writing style. The story was quite sweet and delightful and I thoroughly enjoyed it. My only fault was the ending which I found a bit too abrupt. After going through the ups and downs with the hero and herione I always enjoy a sneak preview of the start of their happy life together whether it be the actual wedding or baby..or anything. That gives a nice conclusion to the story I find. This is the third book I've read by this author and once again my main complaint is the ending (hence I gave it four instead of five stars)!!

I couldn't finish one of her earlier books, don't recall the name. I read this one straight through. Wonderful story. It's as well written as any book by Carla Kelly or Mary Balogh.

I, like many others I suspect, have a guilty Georgette Heyer habit and crave more. This is a miserable imitation. Not only is it littered with Americanisms, 20th century behaviour and completely anachronistic sexual references, it lacks the most basic research. For example you cannot get from Northamptonshire to Lincolnshire by train or road in 2 hours now never mind by curricle in the 18th century and there are no grouse to shoot in Northamptonshire either. I did read to the end, Georgette should have made this into a wonderful comedy.

A quick read not to deep but the characters are well thought out. The story leaves sex to the imagination something I prefer. My only gripe is with the editing most of us can spell "Gentleman"

I bought this kindle today and I just could not stop reading until I had finished it. A truly delightful story with absolutely lovely, well defined characters. A very engaging story. Charming and funny.
I highly recommend lovers of romance to read this.
