I'll admit it. I've grown tired of Regency romances. Too many of them feel like ones I've read before, but Mary Gillgannon restored my enjoyment of Regencies with her first Lords of London story. Combining romance and adventure with intriguing characters, she hooked me from the first page and kept me reading far too late, simply because I had to learn what happened next.

Earl of Northrup, Devon Langley has sold his title and his own hand in marriage to the daughter of a wealthy merchant. Caroline Beaumont feels degraded at the idea that her father has essentially sold her off to the Earl who has only agreed to marry her for the money her father has offered him. Devon is surprised to discover that Caroline is also unhappy with the situation they've both been forced into due to circumstances beyond their control. When love starts to bloom between the reluctant spouses a murder threatens to destroy them both. Devon must find the murderer before Caroline is lost to him permanently.

I really enjoyed this even though Historical Romance is not my typical fare. The description blurb drew me in and I'm so glad I gave this a chance. Caroline and Devon are a very sweet couple; I thought they were adorable. I do understand that in a great deal of romance novels, it's necessary at times to get over the whole "they fell in love too fast" feel about the pace the relationships progress at. This is one of those cases for me, as I did have to get over how quickly the tide turned but I was willing to let it go because they were so cute and likable.

The mystery, the murders, and the blackmail were all really great plot devices to further bring the characters together and cement their feelings for each other. Not only that but it was actually an entertaining mystery. I don't think there were enough clues for the reader to figure it out for themselves convincingly. I know that can be a peeve so I thought I'd mention it. It didn't bother me personally though.

My only issue with the mystery part of the story was how quickly Caroline dismissed the possibility of Devon's involvement in pure faith despite the very incriminating circumstances.

Warning-this review will have spoilers in it. This book had way too many unbelievable events in it. Caroline thinks she can buy her way out of the marriage-after her father offers Devon 100,000 pounds? Then she just decides oh well, I'll just get married. Devon has a bastard son, he doesn't tell Caroline. She follows him to a cottage-looks in the window, sees him with his son. She runs back to her horse, after falling twice, and manages to get into a sidesaddle alone-even though she isn't that good of a rider? No one notices her? When she tells Devon she knows about his son, his response is "well, I was going to get around to telling you"? Then they decide they have to have sex-even though he has never seemed overly attracted to her? Now he can't keep his hands off of her? And how many men actually say "My word" after what they deem to be great sex? Caroline gets stuck in London slums not once, but twice, and makes it out just fine? She believes Devon is not a murderer mainly, it seems, because an innkeeper thinks that way. While they are in London, the son he can't stay away from isn't even mentioned, or thought of. Oh, then there is the party while they are in mourning. (Yes, I understand it was a ruse, but it was just not done.) I think those are enough examples. Serendipity seems to run helter-skelter through this book. Nothing bad can really happen to Caroline and Devon, no matter how many dumb things they do. It would have been better if there had been just a bit of real tension between Devon and Caroline, not just a cold shoulder for a few days.

I couldn't put it down until I'd finished reading it. I thought the elements of romance and mystery were well done and believable. The only thing I had a problem with was Caroline's maid, Jeanette. Even if she'd been with her a long time, her familiarity just didn't seem appropriate, especially in that period of time.

I read the reviews and decided to give this one a chance anyway. Honestly - I couldn't even make it past the halfway point. From unbelievable plot twists to unlikeable main characters to just plain badly written dialog, I just found way too much wrong to entice me to keep going. Unless it's free, pass this one up...maybe even then.

This book gets off to a good start, then just sort of falters. The characters are unlikeable and change their personalities continually throughout the story. It's implausible, it's illogical, it's wrapped up suddenly. I'm glad it was a free selection at the time I downloaded it because it definately would not have been one worth buying. I guess it's the first of the London Lords series....don't think I'll be moving on to the next.

This is a historical romance / mystery set in London is 1819. It starts off quite intriguing, with a impoverished nobleman being coerced into marrying a chit, the daughter of a businessman, for financial reasons. The story progresses and they are married, fairly quickly. The plot moves along fairly fast from there, except for some excessively long (for my tastes) love scenes. There were parts of the plot that were hard to swallow or where I thought to myself, how utterly foolish you are. For example, to trap a killer after one or both of them, the newlyweds throw a huge ball in their home (inviting 200 people), hire extra help for the ball (and thus have lots of extra strangers in their house ) but tell very very few people of the danger, because the murderer could be anyone. How likely is it that something bad is not going to happen? So, this is good if you want some adventure and romance together and you don't mind suspending belief.
