Book Description

Lady Diana Westover is looking for a hero. She intends to write a gothic novel, but having grown up shielded from the ways of the ton, she knows nothing about men. What better way than to explore the ballrooms of Society? During her first outing, she sees Edmond Terrington, Viscount Adderley. With his dark handsome looks, he is exactly the man she's been looking for. So Diana sets out to follow his every move, to study his manly form, and to experience the pleasure of his kisses . . . all for the sake of research.

Edmond cannot imagine why this chit would be following him, spying on his every move, and looking at him as if he is a fascinating bug in a science experiment. He's used to admiring females, but this is ridiculous! So he decides to turn the tables and pursue her instead . . . only to find that she is a disarming beauty whose wit matches his own. Soon all he wants is to be the hero of her dreams.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun Regency June 11, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
She spotted him across a crowded room.....and so the story goes. -- Lady Diana Westover, daughter of a duke, had lived a sheltered life with her reclusive father on a remote estate. While her upbringing was unusual, it did not lack warmth or love, and along with her father, she developed a love of books. It was also her greatest desire to one-day write a novel that could be published. It was towards that purpose that she studied the darkly handsome and suave Edmond Terrington, Viscount Adderley - as she needed a model for the villain in the novel she was writing and if the gossips were correct the Viscount purported to be a womanizer and rake of the first order would certainly fill the bill.
Edmond, feeling the hairs stand up on the back of his neck sensed he was being spied upon, only to turn and see across the room, the Lady Diana's brilliant and expressive eyes focused on him. From this auspicious beginning, it would be fate that would lead their paths to cross, again and again at which time the very outspoken and intelligent Lady Diana, would best Edmond in some absolutely outrageous conversations that were making him stand up and take notice of this most unusual young woman - a woman who neither swooned, nor simpered, and faced him head on. Each meeting became more and more enlightening and Edmond began to realize that here was a woman who was not swooning over his handsomeness but was seeing in him her very own kindred spirit.
This was my very first novel by this author and I LOVED it! It was such an unusual romance with a damsel who was not noted for her beauty, but very outspoken and extremely intelligent.

4.0 out of 5 stars A fun book with a pair of delightful leads February 22, 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is my first Margaret Moore book, but it won't be my last. Diana, an forthright wannabe author, is a refreshing heroine. Edmond's reputation as a libertine and ne'er-do-well is mostly the work of a schoolmate with an ax to grind. In reality, he's a charming, intelligent, honorable man. Only Diana sees past the gossip and the facade to the real man. Their early verbal sparring is great fun, and their growing feelings for each other usually come across realistically. These two will be great friends as well as lovers.

Edmond's friends are interesting and are noticeably set up as future leading men...something I'll be investigating shortly. Only the villain of the piece is also a good secondary character. Diana's Aunt Euphenia had potential, but she needed more space to achieve it. The other aunt was stereotypical. The excerpts from Diana's novel in progress were a nice touch, but there is something a bit off kilter about Diana's test near the end.

Moore uses a great deal of exposition in this book, perhaps too much. I couldn't stay focused, but I'm not sure if that is the fault of the book or other "real life" factors, so I'm not taking points off for that. However, Moore's grammatical errors -- especially prevalent early in the book--irked this English major. Nevertheless, the book not only has interesting characters in an engaging romance, but also an insightful look into the process of writing. Most writers will identify with Diana's struggles and though processes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Why you should pay heed to your fellow readers.. June 6, 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I went into this book knowing exactly what to expect. I found the characters of Diana Westover, her two aunts to be pretty endearing. Lord Adderley, Edmond Terrington is a sensual, caring guy who can belt out one-liners (especially when in the vicinty of buddy Brix). Though the characters never really reached out and grabbed me they were entertaining and yes last half of the book was rushed and the ending left me feeling let down.

2.0 out of 5 stars Where is the passion October 24, 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was at times witty but for me fell flat because the hero and heroine argue a lot and they also spend time apart which did not help further the romance.

Aspiring gothic writer Dianna is in Bath to do some research for her debut novel. She needs to find a dark, engaging man so she can have a clear idea what her villain should be like. She sees Lord Edmund Adderly who is incredibly handsome and according to her gossiping Aunts has a wicked reputation. Dianna instantly sets him in his place quickly with a few well spoken words. One thing that I did not like about Diana in the beginning of this story is that she believed gossip about others and based her opinion about people on hearsay. Edmund is intrigued by Dianna because she shows up in so many places, she even witnesses a tryst between him and his lady friend. Dianna is eavesdropping and watching Edmund many times but denies this when confronted by Edmund.

They constantly banter with little sincerity coming from Dianna. I was just not sure of Edmund; he both liked and distrusted Diana. Every once in a while they have a deep conversation but it would end rather quickly.

Dianna is pursued by another gentleman who is extremely jealous of Edmund and at first she allows this man to color her view. Fortunately Dianna comes to her senses about half way through the novel and really gets to know Edmund instead of listening to gossip.

The beginning of each chapter has a snippet of the novel Dianna is writing. What was confusing is the villain in her book, who is patterned after Edmund, this villain is arrogant, demanding and cruel and he never changes.
