    DNF this is one I can see for miles ahead with vague sign posts all along the way, barreling at me 100 mph, but I am not willing to waste any time waiting for the inappropriate scene to hit me smack in the face I m just gonna call it good or evil as it were and be done with it before it even begins Readers who like clean novels don t even waste your time.

    Nice romance Like the other reviews I agree that the ballroom scene was a little over the top and the plot at the lawyers was a bit overdone However, I loved the one on one interactions between the hero and heroine It was nice change to see a story where the heroine was a virgin, but didn t make a big deal about it It was also nice that the hero didn t realize she was a virgin during the act those scenes are always cringey Overall a nice pleasant read.

    I liked it well enough, though I admit to skimming in spots I would have preferred there be angst about the heroine s supposed plainness and stutter neither had any role in the story really, and weren t mentioned , rather than the drama centering around the mystery Also, view spoiler for a shy, secluded virgin, she sure was brazen af about getting laid hide spoiler

    I simply love it I ve already read it several times, and I still feel like coming back It has a classic plot, but with some interesting twists, good characters, captivating dialogue and a credible romance I know some get annoyed by her stuttering, by I don t mind at all.

    This one of three Harlequin Historicals I got in a recent order and I was pleased with all three of them I will be giving brief reviews on all.I have always been fascinated by the idea of a member of the ton in disguise as someone far beneath him This is the first book in Ann s Rakes in Disguise series.Lord Robert Mountford is a devil may care rake of the first order, dallying with widows, married ladies, gambling, everything that is required for the dissipated life of a rake He goes a step too far and finds himself shunned by his peers and kicked to the cobblestone walk by his imperial father His older twin brother offers to help monetary wise, but proud Robert will have none of it.Cut to three years later, and Robert has been working hard these last years, trying to save enough money to pay back his debts He secures the job of assistant gamekeeper at the Wynchwood Estate It is here he comes across Frederica Bracewell, niece of the owner She is treated as a servant than a beloved member of the family, because she has a cloud of shame over her head, she was illegitimate Frederica is no raving beauty, and she stutters, but the beyond handsome Robert sees something in her that appeals to him greatly.Federica is like no lady Robert has ever met, she draws, quite well in fact, and after seeing Robert shirtless, asks if he will pose for her One thing leads to another and sparks ignite between the two When the story stayed focused and Robert and Frederica in that small gamekeeper s cottage, I was enchanted Wonderful couple, so much to overcome And the love scenes sizzled.But I found the conflict near the end of the book that took place at a masked ball somewhat convolutedand predictable, but it did not take away from the overall enjoyment of the read.Well written, well developed characters, the heat between the hero and heroine was sensual and lush, and the story worked best when it stayed focused on the two in that small little cottage.3.5 stars out of 4 for the book

    This is a light, fluffy historical romance, the main characters Lord Robert Montford, the second son of a Duke and Miss Frederica Bracewell a lady with some doubts about her birth, are both likeable and sweet.Robert has been banished by his imperious Father after one escapade too far, although I do feel he is a little misunderstood He is not in favour with his peers either and leaves London in disgrace Finding employment as an assistant gamekeeper on the estate of Frederica s Uncle, he settles down to a simple life, intrinsically an honourable man he is determined to one day pay off the debts left behind after his flight Frederica is an accomplished artist and likes to sketch in private on her Uncles estate, albeit without his knowledge as he disapproves of this pursuit She is building up a portfolio of her work so that she can escape her Uncle and his plans to marry her off to her cousinhis heir, for nefarious reasons that Frederica is unaware of Frederica plans to travel to Italy to study her art as soon as she is able On one of her sojourns to a special place of hers, she meets Robert and is struck by his beauty eventually she plucks up the courage to ask him to sit for her What follows is sweet and romantic but Frederica is ruined, although Robert does not realise that she is an innocent and she does not correct his assumption, they are very drawn to one another and against his rakish nature Robert finds himself starting to champion her.There is a plot although like the story it is fairly light and fluffy and quite predictable There are quite a few characters introduced, too many really, but on the whole an enjoyable easy read Not too taxing but sweet and romantic.

    has some very commonly found plot elements which is why i thought i might have read it before hadn t.i thought it was actually good, esp that maggie the ow is not a vicious cat at all and the hero, who s been tomcatting since 15, has been celibate the last two years in exile from family ofcourse, he thinks the h is not a virgin and la di da di da there is some amount of groveling in the end which i liked could ve been better but hey, beggars can t be choosers.also, villains are not ott the H s main rival actually turns out refreshingly rational.i d have rated it 3 stars, but it was better than that not quite 4, but still book opens with H and ow i m glad i ignored it and continued reading

    The Gamekeeper s Lady is a traditional Regency Romance with a black sheep, and virgin heroine, but with a lovely touch of historical feminism Much of the heroine s journey is working to overcome social barriers to become a respected artist.Ms Lethbridge has created two wonderfully flawed characters, and whilst they are among the cr me de le cr me of ton society, each stand out, not for their fair appearance, but rather their honesty, honor, and individuality.See the full review at Heroes and Heartbreakers

    This was surprisingly one of the best Regency romances I read I tend to find them too stiff upper lip and droll but picked this one up because the premise seemed a bit different illegitimacy and a disowned lord getting together But, I was pleasantly surprised by the first half of the book Towards the end I felt that the plot was getting a bit too thick and full of characters for my liking but it still held together never the less, so I ve given it 5 stars instead of 4, for pure enjoyment.
