My enjoyment of this book was marred by poor proof reading. There were several printing errors in chapters 5,7,8 and 12. Words were incomplete and phrases and even paragraphs were duplicated 2 and even 3 times

2.0 out of 5 stars Chater's other Regency books are better 11 Dec. 2012
By Cindy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This sequel to "A Delicate Situation" is just boring. The hero and heroine repeat the same distrust issues over and over again. The protagonist never gets what's coming to her and the other protagonist gets to still be friends with the hero and heroine at the end. It is said throughout the book that the hero is immature and it is spot on true. The heroine is admirably forgiving and loving but her intelligence doesn't shine through. She never really stands up for herself and when you finally think she's going to "let the bad guys have it" she still allows all parties to save face. It bugged me. I think Chater is best at small, fast paced romance novels because she didn't pull off this sequel well. I have enjoyed all the other novels I've read by her quite a lot. Read something else she's written. Stay away from this sequel or you may never realize what a great story teller Ms. Chater is.

5.0 out of 5 stars review: The Reformed Rake (Book II) by Elizabeth Chater 1 Mar. 2014
By Dorothy Tucker - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The author, Elizabeth Chater, has penned an attractive, well-written novella in The Reformed Rake (Book II) with verisimilitude in capturing events, venues, characteristics of the peoples of the time. Those of us, like me, would feel comfortable and "at home," in
recollecting similar memories through past associations. Brava!

3.0 out of 5 stars Did not enjoy this book 22 Dec. 2013
By Granny - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one of my favorite authors but this book was full of mistakes, a number of the chapters had sentences repeated several times a number of misspelled words and horrible constructions , add to all of this there were not a satisfactory ending so many things was left hanging I guess there are going to be a (Book111). I would have like to know who the children we're did they arrest Baggs ?
4.0 out of 5 stars It's a well crafted tale because it's Chater, but I prefer her other books! 25 July 2016
By Marlene H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
"The Reformed Rake" Elizabeth Chater (1984, Fawcett) is a Georgian romance, and is also available in the third "Elizabeth Chater Regency Romance Collection." I immensely enjoyed all eight books within the first two collections, and now consider Elizabeth Chater to be one of my favorite authors. "The Reformed Rake" is Chater’s sequel to "A Delicate Situation" (1982), which was about the heroine in this book and how she deals with various challenges shortly after completing boarding school.

4 stars

Lord Phillip Sandron and Lady Thalia Sandron are getting along swimmingly, newly into their marriage. They adore each other, and are enjoying the benefits of marriage… quite a bit! However, just as in any romance I’ve ever read that starts off with a married couple, trouble lies ahead! Phillip is immature and has some real growing up to do. And Thalia has not known Phillip long enough to understand the depths of his affection towards her and to be able to rest in that. This, combined with some extremely annoying interfering external sources, sets the stage for a very angsty read.

What I didn’t like:

*I have to admit to being rather shocked at reference to Thalia’s breast and the marriage bed early on in the book. I had (happily) pegged Chater as a consistent author of clean romances! Granted, there is very little in the way of details, but marital relations IS a predominant theme in the beginning of the book. So I can’t consider it a clean read.

*The angst throughout the book made me feel as though I was riding a roller coaster. Up and down. Up and down. I’ve given this book four stars because I think it deserves it, but I was unsettled for most of the book. I don’t like angst-riddled books. However…...

What I liked:

*I liked how Phillip and Tally were able to successfully navigate the challenges, and there is no BIG MISUNDERSTANDING in place from beginning to end. So there is a redeeming quality within the turmoil experienced by the characters.

*I still really love Tally, just as I did in "A Delicate Situation." (I didn’t enjoy her as much in this book as in the first one, though.)

----------------------------------

I’d recommend this book to those who like Regency/Georgian romance novels as long as the fact that it is not quite a clean read is acceptable. I’ve now read twelve Chater books, most of which I loved. Even though "The Reformed Rake" is definitely not my favorite, I will happily keep reading Chater.
3.0 out of 5 stars Satisfying! 15 April 2014

Good continuation of first book...I assume the publishers made the author agree to two volumes, of what really is one story, not two...I was glad to find the h and H finally getting to HEA....good ending to a charming set of characters, and evil slimy villains...very good!
