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.

More About the Author

Karen Hawkins is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of over 26 fun and lively Regency historical romances and two humorous contemporary romances. Like Sabrina Jeffries, Julia Quinn, Victoria Alexander, and Suzanne Enoch, Karen's books are renown for their sparkling humor, dashing rakes, independent heroines, and often include freshly retold fairy tales (Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, etc), daring rescues, runaway brides, marriages of convenience, Regency balls, and more! With vivid descriptions, strong characters, and captivating plots, Karen takes her readers from London's Regency ballrooms to the purpled moors of Scotland and beyond.

When not stalking hot Australian actors, pretending to do 'research' while looking up pictures of men in kilts from the Scottish highlands, or teasing her husband (aka Hot Cop) about his propensity to idolize chocolate cake over the other food groups, Karen is busy writing her next book while resting her toes on one of her three large rescue dogs. She lives in Florida and can be reached at

If you want information on Karen's new releases, sign up here for her amazingly fun newsletter, which she sends out only three or four times a year because ... well, we don't know why, but she never seems to do more than that. Probably because she's too busy with her kilt-watching. That takes up a lot of our time, too.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

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.

Her Officer and Gentleman is the sequel to Her Master and Commander. I found this one to be much more engaging and interesting than the first one. I didn't love it, but it was an easier read than HMaC and had more meat to the story.

Even though I didn't think HMaC was all that wonderful of a book, I was looking forward to Christian's story. His introduction in HMaC left me wanting to know more about him, and also wanting to know the resolution of what had happened to him and his brother Tristan's mother. Christian is a great dark and brooding.

Story-line wise, I liked how everything worked out. The plot was so much more interesting than HMaC, which seemed to have no direction and point and bored me at times. I wasn't really bored with HOaG. Hawkins creates a nice, plausible plot that reads well. It's not full of twists and suspense, but it fits the story fairly well.

Romance wise...well, for a historical, I thought it was lacking a bit in the sex-scenes area. Which is tacky to say, probably. But usually in historicals you get more than a little of the good stuff (*G*). In this book, though, you get only one full sex scene. And I will say that I thought it was unnecessary for Hawkins to put off the intimacy for so long in the book. Strictly on a romance sense, I enjoyed Christian and Elizabeth. They were nice counterparts.

Overall, I liked HOaG much more than HMaC. It was just a much more well-rounded story with more purpose and meat. I didn't love the book, but I didn't mind reading it and mostly enjoyed it.

Interesting sidenote - from the other reviews of HOaG I read, it seems as though those who liked HMaC hated HOaG, and those who liked HOaG hated HMaC. Just an interesting contrast.
