HASH(0x9b6c89cc) out of 5 stars Passionate 29 July 2005
By Viv - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I picked this book up and devoured it in a day. I am not a big Cathy Maxwell fan, but the premise seemed promising. The heroine was strong and beautiful. The hero sexy and enigmatic.

This is the story of star-crossed lovers seperated ten years ago by fate and family only to cross paths again. This is a story of unrequited love and passion that will keep you glued to it till the bitter, but happy end.

Miranda is forced to leave her American home and travel to London to save her sister's from financial ruin. In other words, find a wealthy and titled husband. She is reluctant because her heart has always belonged to her one and only true love, Alex. The two fell in love as teenagers but because he was half Shawnee Indian and she white, their love was doomed.

By a twist of fate, they are reuinted while docked in the same port. The best is yet to come. This novel is fraught with jealousy, anger, love, passion, and hope. Not your usual overused storyline.

Definitely one for the keeper shelf!

HASH(0x9b6c8b1c) out of 5 stars Historical Romance Lovers Will Find This Enjoyable 19 Aug. 2005
By Melissa - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
Miranda Cameron grew up as an American, far from the English ton.  But it's the ton she must conquer to achieve her goal of securing a better life for her sisters.  As the grand-daughter of an English earl with uncommon beauty and a small inheritance, Miranda sets sail for England in hopes of marrying an affluent aristocrat.

Alex Hadden, sea captain and enormously successful businessman, encounters Miranda, and his past, on his way to England.  He learns that the woman that once held his heart is now on the hunt for a titled husband.  Alex, however, as the grandson of a treasonous British General cannot offer Miranda the future she seeks.

Miranda soon becomes the season's Incomparable.  She is wildly successful as Alex watches from afar.  Miranda has her pick of noblemen, and the opportunity to fulfill her promise to her sisters or follow her heart.  Regardless of her choice, the price is high.

Fans of Historical Romance will enjoy this book. As a Cathy Maxwell fan, I wish I could say that this was her best effort. The miscommunication between the hero and heroine made me want to smack their heads together. In fact, I found myself rooting for Alex's main competitor in the race for Miranda's hand. While there is always a level of frustration and anticipation in the quest for true love, these two pushed my limit. I hope the next installment in this trilogy is a better reflection of Ms. Maxwell's talent.

HASH(0x9b6c8a8c) out of 5 stars Indiscretion??? More like indecision. 3 Aug. 2005
By Cowgirl Anglophile - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I like Cathy Maxwell, I really do, so I was a bit disappointed in this effort. He does, then he doesn't, she will and she wouldn't, the sisters push and then pull. The characters are too far-fetched, too 21st century to fit in a London high society scene, he being a half breed [and son of a traitor] and she a backwoods beauty. I'm hoping for better from Cathy next time.

HASH(0x9b6c8984) out of 5 stars Very Good Read 22 Sept. 2005
By TracyB - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed this book and cant wait for the next in the series...for the Duke and Miranda's Older Sister, Charlotte.

I liked Miranda and Alex. They acted how they did because of their own issues. Please remember Miranda was 15 years old when she met Alex the first time. How could we expect for her to leave her Father and Sisters and go off to live such a different type of life.

Very Good Effort!

HASH(0x9b6cc264) out of 5 stars fine historical romance 26 July 2005
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1805 New York, Miranda Cameron consults with her two younger sisters about her going to England to marry a wealthy aristocrat. Having fallen in love with a half breed Pawnee-Englishman, Miranda has doubts, but feels her indiscretion with Alex ten years ago hurt her siblings. So with no prospects and little money, she agrees to go with Lady Overstreet, who will arrange a match for a fee.

In the Azores, Captain Alex Haddon of the Warrior is shocked to see Miranda is here. He never forgot or forgave her for what happened between them ten years ago. At a party in her honor, he is nasty to her, but also insists they are married even if it is Pawnee style and they never consummated their vows. A drunken Alex abducts Miranda. As they sail to London they argue until they make love for the first time.

In London, Miranda resides in the home of Alex's business partner while he refuses to see her. Instead he tells the wife of his partner to find her an aristocrat husband. Miranda cries as he has left her again, but vows to marry well for her sisters' sakes.

The strong lead couple with a solid support cast enhancing the plot turns THE PRICE OF INDISCRETION into a fine historical romance. Fans will appreciate the dilemma facing the likable heroine as she must choose between responsibility and loyalty to her beloved sisters vs. her beloved. Although at times Alex's behavior seems confusing, readers will appreciate this fine early nineteenth century tale and look forward to the sisters starring in future novels.
