Loretta Chase back on top form
on 27 April 2005
Ms Chase remains one of my favourite romance authors. Knaves Wager and Lord of Scoundrels are top of the list of favourite romances. Now they are joined by Mr. Impossible!
What a fantastic story! The characters are great, the pace is fast, the dialogue funny, the chemistry almost palbable.
Set in Egypt during the early 1820s, scholar Daphne Pembroke is looking for her kidnapped brother and when seeking help at the English consulate has the assistance of Mr Rupert Carsington thrust upon her, the Consul being equally determined to remove Mr Carsington as he is in helping Mrs Pembroke. Mr. Carsington is known for not being overly blessed in the brain department and Daphne reconciles herself to the fact that he will provide the brawn and she the brains in the search.
Mr Carsington (the brother of Alistair in Miss Wonderful) is one of my favourite heroes, he is funny and smart (as the reader gradually discovers), easy going, good humoured,kind to animals; and above all; likes women.
If you have never read Mr Chase before this is a good place to start. I promise you will be hooked.
