I enjoyed this, but would enjoy it better if spelt correctly! Scottish Whisky - not whiskEy. And no one eats 'coon' in Britain. Quite simply, there aren't Racoons here! Research!

Sometimes you don't read the reviews until you have finished reading the book, this is one you wish you had read before, a book that gives fiction writing a bad name.

What can I say? This story has two romances happening and I think it suffers for this.
Also, there's a lot of talk about religion and Christian charity by Genie one of the heroines, yet this book is far from a clean read. In fact, this supposedly 'Christian' heroine happily has premarital sex with the rakish hero, apparently not even caring that she is doing so when he's so drunk he cannot articulate sentences. Yet some reviewers call the romance sweet! Losing your virginity to a drunk is sweet? Really? I'll be sure to share that with my teenage daughter.
The second set of lovers, the Duke and his grandmother's companion, are even more thinly sketched than Grant and Genie (which incidentally are ridiculous names for Regency characters). The addition to the plot of French spies and various romantic intrigues just clutters up the narrative and frankly isn't particularly well done.
The many separate strands of the plot feel like they have been badly cobbled together rather than woven into an engaging and skilful tapestry.
Also, the initial faux pas that causes Genie's social disgrace is highly unlikely to have truly been seen as so disgraceful, in those days people performed all sorts of bodily functions in public. I doubt a gentle laugh at someone breaking wind would have caused Queen Charlotte offense, even if she was offended, by that time in the Regency period, she had gained a reputation for being quick tempered and as such her irritation was often belittled or quickly passed over by many of those around her.
I admit boredom lead me to skip or skim pages. It was a free read, but even then not worth the payment in effort to read it.

I too wish I had read the reviews first. Then I would have expected the huge errors. If Grant drank whiskey because of his ancestry he should have been irish - scottish whisky (Scotch) doesn't have an e. Whiskey has more mentions in this book than anything an English gentleman would really drink in this period - the distilling of whisky becoming legal in 1823.
As for the faux pas - surely the girl was mistaken that the Queen (who died in 1818 before whisky was even slightly refined) was unhappy about her laughter. Surely the Queen was more unhappy about being addresses as Your Highness - when she was in fact Your Majesty.

I don't usually comment on books I've read, instead I just leave a rating. I feel this book deserves credit. It is wonderful, the characters are well portrayed, the wit is wonderful and the plot line is mad yet entertaining. I must confess I worked the majority of the plot line out fairly early on, and yet I still read on to see how everything was resolved. It was humorous and entertaining and I could not put it down. I have now purchased the other two in the series and am thoroughly looking forward to them. If you want a whimsical, entertaining tale with love and a hint of intrigue, give this a go.

This book was quite difficult to get in to. It's a period drama, hence took me a while to get my head round it. As the story went on it had intrigue, mystery and some quite funny parts as well.
If you're a fan of period drama you will definitely like this one.
