Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Hawkins concludes her sensual Just Ask Reeves Regency series (following Her Master and Commander) with a hint of mystery. Former highwayman Christian Llevanth, Viscount Westerville, is determined to discover who falsely reported his mother as a traitor, leading to her imprisonment and untimely death. Convinced that the duke of Massingale was his mother's betrayer, Westerville plans his revenge, deciding to gain entry into the duke's household by romancing the duke's granddaughter, Lady Elizabeth. But Lady Elizabeth is an enigmatic woman, a forward thinker who doesn't wish to marry and even affects a stutter to discourage would-be suitors. Neither Westerville nor Lady Elizabeth expect emotions to become involved during their saucy, witty flirtation, but as they join forces to unearth the mystery behind the fate of Westerville's mother, excitement and passion bring them closer together. While the novel lacks the emotional intensity and taut romantic tension found in the best of this genre, the protagonists' frank, intelligent dialogue and a twist of suspense carry the novel through to a well-plotted conclusion.

The storyline is just too trite and immature.
retroredux
Author, Karen Hawkins gives us two lead characters that are intriguing, believable and very likeable and the dialogue between them is sharp, witty and provocative.

Though this book wasn't exactly boring, it did little to grab my attention and keep me reading.

Title says it all, I was pleasantly surprised. I read Her Master and Commander, didn't like it, and was going to pass this book by. But, I felt I needed to give this author another chance since I liked her previous books before HMAC, so picked it up. I read it in one sitting, and for a book to hold my attention, it's bodes well.

Quick synopsis, the book's hero, Christian, has an agenda - REVENGE. First, he must find the person responsible for his mother's incarceration for alleged traitorous activities, and subsequent death. At the young age of 10, he was separated from his twin brother, and forced to live off his wits. He began with stealing, which evolved into becoming a highway man, dubbed "Gentleman James/Jack". As an adult, he finds himself with a title, a big fortune, and an inherited butler, who's role is to teach Christian how to become an aristocrat. Christian has evidence the Duke of Massingale, (whose name "Massingale" sounds somewhat like that brand name woman's feminine product hawked on tv), was involved, if not responsible, for his mother's imprisonment. To get to the duke, Christian attempts to seduce and win over the Duke's beloved grand daughter, Lady Elizabeth "Beth".

I liked both characters. Christian was bent on revenge, and in the end, comes to the realization that revenge isn't worth true love. As Beth and Christian's relationship evolves, the reader can see the change in Christian's attitude, his regrets of using Beth, and his appreciation for Beth's persona. I quite liked Beth, she was spunky, witty, and good hearted. Hawkins did not overdo Beth, she created her without making her seem to good to be true. The scenes flowed, and the dialogue was smooth.

After having read and enjoyed; HER MASTER AND COMMANDER, the first book in Karen Hawkins's two book mini-series, I was eagerly awaiting the release of HER OFFICER AND GENTLEMAN ~ And I must say, the superbly talented Ms. Hawkins's delivered a charming, engaging and highly entertaining romantic tale; that met and exceeded my expectations. I thoroughly enjoyed this heartwarming story!

All alone from the age of tender 10 - tormented by the death of his mother, loss of his twin brother to a ship's press gang and total abandonment by an uncaring father -- Christian Llevanth grew up on the streets of London, forced to depend on fighting, cunning and his wits to survive. As an adult he became a daring and mysterious highwayman; known to the Ton as Gentleman James for his suave manner with the ladies. Now, due to an unexpected inheritance, the handsome, charming, wealthy and newly titled: Christian James Llevanth, Viscount Westerville ~ regardless of his mysterious background, is welcomed everywhere by the cream of London society.

However, Christian is on a quest and has vengeance on his mind. He's waited more than 20 years to solve the mystery of who betrayed his mother and caused her to be falsely accused of treason; then left to die alone in prison. He won't rest until the guilty person is apprehended ~ and held accountable. From evidence he's gathered, Christian's thinks the elderly and reclusive duke of Massingale is the villain responsible; and he's determined to gain entry to his home to prove it. Even if that means he must charm, sweet-talk and if necessary ~ seduce the duke's only granddaughter to do it.

Lady Elizabeth Westover or Beth to her family and friends is lovely, kind, caring, thoughtful, and loving.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I cannot believe I bought this book. This was so boring and worst of all the dialogue was cliche and predictable. I am only writing this review because I saw how high this book was rated and I needed to inform readers out there that this book is not what it cracked up to be although the synopsis sounded interesting. Don't buy it unless you have insomnia and need to fall asleep quickly. 1 diminsional characters and lack of humour and wit plague this book. If you want a book with facinating characters and unpredictable humor - a breath of fresh air - get Terea Medeiros "After Midnight". And also, another turn off is that this book, unsurprisingly, is insipid, dull, and lacks any sensuality. What this book needs is a generous dosage of viagra and intelligent humor. To the trash can its fate lies with all the rest of its ill-written lack lustre cohorts.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
While the first book in this 2 part series was only fair-I had already purchased this book and was determined to give it a chance. Wrong!

The author took what seemed to be a "bad guy on the verge of redemption" in book one, and drops him right back to bad as book two starts.

This author shows no continuity with her characters. The H/H both start the book as seemingly OK characters, but quickly turn vengeful and mean spirited.

I quit the book in disgust 100 pages in when the hero refers publicly to the other gentlemen interested in the heroine as "fleas" and the heroine thinks it's funny:(-all the while his horse is trying to bite the other mens horses, yet he tells THEM to control their horses? This would have been unacceptable in Regency England and the hero would have been the one to control his horse or leave.

The author seems to be going for "rakish" with the hero, but it just comes off as a bully and a boar. The "revenge" storyline is always a difficult one to execute and if tried the hero had better have more going for him than Christian. Another irritating point was the rehashing every other page at how really, really good looking the Hero and Heroine are. It seemed they were all style and no substance.

This author has both characters behaving completely inappropriately for the time period. While I can overlook historical inaccuracy to a point-when it's nearly every page then it's just poorly written and researched.

The storyline is just too trite and immature. Like the previous book it just seems as if the author/publisher rushed to get this book out based of the author's past popularity. Which is the quickest way to lose faithful readers who do not like to be sold such a poor bill of goods.
