Well the story line for me wasn't too bad. But like a few of the other reviews here I would say that they are right in the fact that the cultural mistakes were of the simplist and therefor very offputting making it seem that no research had been done at all. I also felt that the story was beefed up with non essentials making it too long.
Would I recommend the book? yes if you take into account these things and comments by other reviewers.

Please consider writing your delightful romances set in a venue you know. It throws one quite out of the story to have so many historical and social errors! An English gentleman going for a sheriff? Ladies hobnobbing in kitchens? Servants with absolutely no concept of manners? Ladies scrabbling on a ballroom floor to pick up food? What is going on?

This was not the worst romance I've ever read, but it does have considerable flaws. The main one is the glaring lack of historical authenticity. Not only do the characters sound like 21st century Americans doing a clumsy approximation of how they imagine 19th century English people spoke, but the author plainly doesn't have the first idea about 19th century manners, customs or social etiquette either. An unmarried gentleman and an unmarried young lady of the upper gentry do not address each other by their first names, and would NOT be left alone in a room together, under any circumstances. And three young, unmarried sisters would not be left to run a castle* by themselves with no mature female supervision, such as a maiden aunt or other appropriate chaperone. Brothers and sisters do not dance with each other (the author never read Jane Austen's 'Emma', obviously). Young ladies do not scamper about kitchens baking cookies, and CERTAINLTY don't go handing out said confections at a ball like servants! Nor does a young lady gnaw a chicken leg in a carriage like some common oik.

*Do Americans believe that all the English nobility live in castles? And how is it that in three families of the upper nobility, all of the older generation has conveniently died, leaving the young twenty-something men to inherit, and all these young unmarried ladies galavanting about without supervision?

All that aside, it was a fluffy, easy read. But it did drag a little in places. The first third of the book tries to be an Austen-esque comedy of manners, as the love-struck pair meet again after many years and strive to overcome all personal, familial and societal objections to their union.

A wonderful easy to read book with a great story. Even though it was quite a long read it wasn't too drawn out and flowed lovely. Although the villain a little obvious the reasons for them being so never materialized until the end. The romance and love scenes were very heart warming. This was one of the nicest books I've read in a while. Well worth a read

Another brilliantly crafted tale by Lauren! The characters are so believable that you laugh and cry alongside. I lived the constant twists and turns of the storyline, Lauren is a master craftsman! This is a beautiful romance studded with intrigue that has your heart beating! Thank you!

This is the first Lauren Royal book that I have read. It is the first in a trilogy set in the Regency period, although there is a much longer series set in an earlier era. It is, however, a totally stand-alone book. The hero, Tristan, was a long time friend of Alexandra's brother. Son of a younger son, he had to go to Jamaica to oversee his uncle's properties there when Alexandra was just fifteen. He always had her heart, but she knew - as the daughter and now sister of a Marquess - that he would not be deemed suitable for her. When she met him again some seven years later he had, through a series of deaths, inheritied his uncle's marquisate. However, he was shunned by society because of a dark secret.

The plot is quite good, the writing is reasonable, and I loved Tristan. Alexandra took a bit of getting used to (why was she so willing to put her feelings for Tristan aside and marry quickly to oblige her brother?) However, she grew on me, and I was happy to follow the twists of the plot. This tale is told almost entirely from Alexandra's perspective. I always prefer novels where there are chapters told from the two differing viewpoints - but that is just a quibble! There were no mistakes in the form of the titles, and there were no glaring Americanisms. I would definitely recommend this book for a holiday read. However, be aware that the blush factor is quite high - although appropriate within the story.

liked the storyline, and the way the plot works out. good reading. reviewing this after reading most of the regency chase series. I have enjoyed them all but the characters sound a bit 21st century and a bit too modern to fit in in the period the books are supposed to be set in, young ladies of any breeding would never be alone with a male they're not related to, a family member or maid would always be with them. having said that the srotyline was good, and I will read other books by this author
