About the Author

Elizabeth Charles is a pseudonym for Canadian author Deborah Hale. Deborah's first novel, the Georgian-era romance My Lord Protector won RWA's Golden Heart award and was nominated for the RITA for Best First Book. Since then she has written more than twenty more novels in the genres of historical romance, inspirational romance and otherworld fantasy. Her books have been translated into more than a dozen languages and sold millions of copies worldwide. "Deborah Hale recreates mid-18th century manners with charming flair and the ending is deliciously cogent." - Romantic Times "Hale's characters are so finely created they become real in her readers' minds and hearts." - Sheryl Horst, syndicated romance reviewer "Yet another masterpiece penned by the historical mistress of romance. Don't miss this truly touching and tender story." - The Old Book Barn Gazette

(review by Cat, not Phil)

Readable story, quite interesting; but doesn't grab the reader's attention. Some of the US spellings are irritating, when this story is set in Georgian England! (draft, colored, paneled, practicing, skillful, favors, gotten) Other spellings are just weird (some'ut, haypennies - summat, ha'pennies) Even so, I reached the end, so it must be ok, hence 3 stars.

I adored this book - the writer cleverly writes using the pen name Elizabeth Charles - combining the happy couples names.Mrs Armistead is brought to life in bawdy,vibrant Georgian London . Charles Fox is one of her sponsors and together with the Foxites plot to make Lizzie the leading courtesan of her day.
The book takes us through Lizzie's affairs with men of importance - showing the glamorous but sordid life led by Cyprians during this era.
Charles Fox is brought to life and his sweet tolerant charm is a perfect foil for the kindly Mrs Armistead.
I hope this writer chooses other historical characters to write about - although we have quite a few books about Nell Gwynn I think this author could do her justice.
I felt as though I had been transported through history and greatly enjoyed reading of times where freedom and fun had not given way to modern po faced morality.
A wonderful love story where trust and loyalty are pitted against the morals of the day.

this book was written in such a way that you are immediately drawn in to the life of this woman, she really does live life with joyous abandon but it was not the life she imagined for herself as a child. This book draws upon factual evidence to give credence to what is essentially the authors rendition of Elizabeth Armisteads' life . I thoroughly enjoyed the way the relevant details of historical events and the documentary evidence of this woman's life and times intermingled with the novelisation of what could not possibly be known about events that went into building her character and lifestyle choices. Would thoroughly recommend this book and this author.

A well researched, fascinating book. Politics and personal relationships of some of the important people who lived in this era are very cleverly woven together to make an interesting and explicit read. Some very vivid sexual encounters but in today's age of enlightenment should not upset too many people, nothing violent or nasty.

LIttered with modern American slang - among many other anachronisms and inaccuracies - coupled with a turgid writing style, it seems unsure whether it is trying to be erotica, bodice-ripper or history. Not be recommended
