3.0 out of 5 stars The First Half is Terrible, The Second Half is Better 25 July 2008
By R. Crane - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I have read all of Claudia Dains' books. Her first ones were really excellent, and then, something happened, as often happens with authors who run out of inspiration. They started to be less fulfilling and pleasing, dragging and repetitive. This time, the poor quality was refelcted in the first half of the book where her writing style was awful I blame her editors. Phrases were so out of sync with ensuing sentences, it was like reading Latin, going from front to end to middle. Horrible. I was just about to give up on this book when suddenly it was like someone else took over the writing and voila! the quality totally changed. Did someone else write the first half?

The second half was very good with a good plot, and far less repetitious material. Claudia! Pay Attention!

5.0 out of 5 stars engaging Regency romance 6 May 2008
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In 1800 during her first season, Lady Louisa Kirkland fell in love with the Marquess of Dutton; but two years later he shows no indication of returning her feelings. Desperate to seduce Dutton, Louisa asks retired courtesan Lady Sophia Dalby for help as the woman proved a wizard when she manipulated her daughter's love match (see THE COURTESAN'S DAUGHTER).

Somewhat amused that her Machiavellian matchmaking skills are admired; the Countess agrees to help Louisa wins her heart's desire. However, she knows that Dutton would not look twice at Louisa, but Lord Henry Blakesly would look eternally at her though he tries to hide his regard behind a cynical demeanor. Although Louisa sees Henry as a friend, Sophia persuades her to kiss him in order allegedly to make Dutton jealous.

Humor abounds in this engaging Regency romance as the former courtesan steals the show from the lead couple. Louisa is a fascinating protagonist as her desperation takes her to her new hero, Sophia whose exploits with Caro and Ash are Regency legend. Henry is also an interesting character who hides his deep feelings for Louisa behind a mask of sarcasm, but Sophia sees through to the heart of the matter. Fans will enjoy the return of the matchmaking courtesan.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved IT! 18 Jun. 2008
By Jess Uptown - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I picked up the first book in the 'Courtesan,' series and immediately wanted more. I couldn't put that one or this one down. At times I even laughed out loud, (I know my dog was looking at me like I was one drugs). The characters are well rounded and not just flat historical romance characters who are insipid. Ok, well, the main character is a little insipid but she grows on you over time. The real reason I love this book is b/c of the courtesan herself. Her motivation, and her humor are delightful. This book is a perfect escape for a rainy day.

1.0 out of 5 stars Literally Unreadable 12 Oct. 2009
By Tamara - Published on Amazon.com
I have read and actually liked previous books by this author, which is why I was surprised to find the writing in this book so utterly bland. The story was so boring that I was yawning by page 60, and by page 90, I had to set the book down, never to be picked up again. The story is overwhelmed by the vast amount of redundant and boring dialogue abundant throughout this book. Readers, dont waste your time; there is better regency romance to be read by other authors ( Julie Anne Long's " Since the Surrender" being one of those novels!)

I like her books and do enjoy one that is in a series. I enjoy being able to look for series books on Amazon and the condition of the book was very good. P Pratt
