HASH(0x8f885ab0) out of 5 stars fun regency romance 2 Mar. 2002
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1823 at 7 Mayfair Street in London, Latimer More knows he has found his love of a lifetime in Jenny McBride. However, the poverty stricken Scottish lass cannot believe he even remotely cares about her. Like his family and the other tenants, Jenny finds it impossible to believe that someone as successful in business and with women like Latimer could love a pathetic orphan like Jenny.

Jenny has other problems to deal with besides an alleged mooning suitor. She owes rent and her landlord wants her to barter sex as payment. She refuses his offers, but Mr. Bucket is not a man that easily accepts any denial of his pleasures. Can Jenny turn to Latimer or is he faking affection to get into her boudoir?

THE ORPHAN is a fun regency romance that follows the story of two middle class types. Latimer is a heroic individual, but THE ORPHAN belongs to the title character Jenny. Her struggles with Bucket while debating whether Latimer is her savior or a leap from the frying pan into the fire make the tale. The return of the Shakespearean-spouting ghost adds humor as Stella Cameron provides a fresh look at the era with an engaging yet simplistic tale.

HASH(0x8fafde1c) out of 5 stars Series starts to get back on track 9 Mar. 2011
By E. S. Anderson - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
The fourth book in Cameron's Mayfair Square series picks up a bit, at least in terms of plot. Jenny McBride is the titular orphan, working as a milliner's assistant. She is introduced to Latimer More of Mayfair Square by her inclusion in a club Sybil Lloyd (nee' Smiles) had formed in order to inform themselves of the particulars involved in romantic interludes. Latimer has decided to woo and marry Jenny, and she pridefully resists. The intrigue comes at the hands of Morley Bucket, Jenny's former landlord who plans to sell her as a mistress/slave to a very rich Client. The ghost of Sir Spivey is still interfering and causing trouble, but is in the process of a reformation, and his machinations are less disruptive than they've been in past volumes.
I had a little trouble understanding why, exactly, Latimer had set his cap for Jenny, but she proves to be a worthy match. However, I hate, Hate HATE the device of phonetically spelling the words uttered by someone with a Scottish accent, and thus found myself skimming everything uttered by Jenny. "Och." "Dinna" "Ye." Blech.
As I said, though, the intrigue in this novel was much better plotted than the last two novels in the series, and the villain was actually a surprise to me.
Hopefully the next and final book will continue on this trend.

HASH(0x8fb00228) out of 5 stars Great Story 9 Nov. 2007
By Cyirra - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was a great read. I didn't really care for the ghost and skipped almost all of his story line and some other parts were also not necessary but if you are looking for a great love story then you have it here. The hero and heroine are very sweet and likable characters and I enjoyed reading as they fell in love. The ending was strange and seemed only to be there to add another love scene. It seemed to be written in a style that reminded me of Georgette Heyer - minus the love scenes of course.

HASH(0x8f885f6c) out of 5 stars Horrible!! 26 Jun. 2002
By Anna - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
What a bore! I've tried three times to get through this book and it's all I can do to make it through a page. I just finally gave up and threw it away. What a shame that this formally-gifted author is now writing drivel.
