Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Escapade" is simply delicious!! There were parts where I was laughing non-stop until I almost cried. It was done up in the style of "Indiscreet" although not quite so satifying.
Like all her other books, Micheals gave "Escapade" a strong, diverse, cutesy cast. There was the main protagonists, "Miss C." and Simon Rocksbury, Viscount Brockton. Sidekicks come in the package of Lester Plum, an overweight, peaches and cream to-die-for adorable bestfriend who shares a penchant with Imogene for chocolate tarts, and is always caught in scrapes not of his making. One scheme had poor Lester dressed up in a pink frock (not his best color, were told), masquerading as C's aunt Leslie! Theres also the Simon's mother Imogene, the outrageously tall, bulky Viscountess, and don't you dare add "dowager" to her title thank you very much mama! She is forever starving herself and laced up in corsets for the sole reason of finding a husband beofre Simon marries as to not be delegated to the dower house. Her real reason is so far from that! Of course Simon has to have his friends, in this case they are Bartholomew Boothe aka "Bones" an all together too thin, short, nervous man who hobbies includes expounding on the virtues of eating, last there is Armand Gaultier an American breed "ex-privateer" who is too handsome and smooth by half, with a nice fabricated history to share, and the fathers, brother, and the nasty villain.
This is a laguh a mile, revenge gone wrong story with both the hero and heroine out for revenge for 2 distinct reason, Callie's is revealed and you'll have to read to know Simon's. Definitley pick it up if you are looking for laughs, this book will keep you guessing in all the wrong directions.

This book failed to really engage me till about half way through and even then it didn't really grip me. I think it was because I personally found many of the characters irritating and their actions unbelievable for that time period. Caladonia is supposed to be smart but, in my opinion has the brains of a gnat. Her best friend is so easily led and stupid that he holds no attraction as a man or even as an overgrown boy, yet the reader is encouraged to "love" him because he wore a dress and eats a lot. The potential mother-in-law is so opinionated and outrageous to the point of unbelievability. As for the romance side, well I found myself thinking "Oh just get on with it will you". On the plus side I am in the minority because most reviewers seem to totally disagree with me.

I've read quite a few of Kasey Michaels' Regency Romances, but had previously missed this one.
In common with many of her other stories, this one features a selection of interesting and well drawn characters. She does specialise in characters that are somewhat zany and a bit exaggerated, but manages to make them believable and very likeable. While sometimes the situations she sets up are on the ridiculous side, they are enticing and manage to draw one into believing. The story is nicely humourous and has a real feel-good factor. An enjoyable and fun read.
The writing is quite elegant and knowledge of the Regency England context is good. And, as an added bonus, presumably because this Kindle version is a re-issue, the price was very low.

I found this book long drawn out, I didn't find a lot of warmth in the characters - you nearly wanted to shout at the book "just get on with it!" The beginning is good, getting revenge on a man but bring in the wrong carriage. But the endless waiting around in the house in the middle of the book. Then the sex scene at the end of the book - missing a bit of warmth there.

The writing is wonderful, the characters are people you think you've met and the plots are often too real. When reviewing I never know whether to précis the story or just give you my opinion, I am delighted to do both. This is just so well written and funny my advice is just read it.

I do have a few very minor complaints-
I thought the main characters were likable and entertaining. First, the book could actually be edited down 50 pages. There was too much inane dialogue (which I think was put there) to illustrate the wit or teasing banter of their conversations. Secondly, the heroine Callie was a trifle annoying with her stubborness and foolish antics. I could not relate to her, she was too young and immature. Finally, I can't help but feel that there could have been more.... description of the feelings they were experiencing, or twists to the plot. The plot was your typical formula, but all in all it worked for me. Overall a good book.
There are strong supporting characters. They offer us comic relief and add to the story. I thought the hero Simon, Viscount Roxbury was wonderful as the hero. But I hope that Ms. Michaels will not ignore Armand Gauthier (Simon's close friend). Armand would make a fantastic hero for an upcoming novel. I could have read more about him! He has sex appeal, character, charm and intelligence--all wonderful traits for an upcoming lead character.
I gave it 4 stars, because of those minor complaints. Good book.
