Book Description

Never, in all her twenty years of life, had Star Berkley seen the likes of Sir Edward. He was so damned arrogant, so damned fashionable, and so damned insolent—and he was the most handsome man she had ever come across!

Sir Edward, for his part, could do without the pert country airs of a chit like Miss Berkley. She was impish, plain-spoken, and obviously not his sort, which was just as well, for it seemed she had stolen the heart of his closest friend.

Then Sir Edward stumbled onto a most sordid secret: the Berkleys’ estate teetered on ruination, and brother and sister were being brutally blackmailed by a vile den of thieves.

Sir Edward meant to save them, if Star would allow him, and he was a determined man, determined that she would allow him … everything.

4.0 out of 5 stars As good as any other Claudy Conn book February 9, 2014
By amtmcm
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Star Berkley and her brother, Lord Vern Berkley, are in dire straights and close to losing their beloved home, Berkeley Grange. Vern becomes involved with local smugglers to earn some money to pay their immediate bills. Obviously, this goes badly. Their neighbor Jules Stamford is smitten with Star and brings his friend Sir Edward Denton on a visit to Berkley Grange. Sir Edward doesn't think the hoydenish Star will suit Jules' need for a wife with political aspirations, but he falls under Star's charms himself.

There are several likable characters to root for in this story. Jules and Vern are both very good natured, handsome and everyone likes them. Star is lively, outspoken and gorgeous. Sir Edward is sophisticated, the best looking man Star has ever seen and he's trying to redeem himself from his bad behavior in the previous book, Wildfire Kiss. The plot moves along at a fast pace, Claudy Conn always writes well and the tone is generally upbeat, even with the looming financial problems for the Berkley's.

Did you sense a "but" was coming? I waited a couple days to write this review because I was torn between 3 and 4 stars. This is the eighth Claudy Conn book I've read, and while I enjoy her writing style, it can be formulaic. This is not a criticism. I've read several dozen Dick Francis novels and they are all formulaic, but I still enjoyed them. However, every one of Claudy's book I've read has the heroine having sex with the hero before he declares his intentions and then she doubts his feelings for her and she feels bad about what she did (maybe not Myriah Fire, but the other seven heroines felt remorse). Ugh! I hate this plot device. I guess I keep reading her books to see if she'll change it up one of these times.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lady Star by Claudy Conn February 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Lady Star is the kind of woman we all want to be like she has passion and is smart , sometime the heroines are not the smartest , not so in this book. The story line is done in a way that flows so you want to stop reading but can not you have to see WHAT is next. Lady Star is with her brother Vern who has made a mess and is in debt due to their fathers doings when he was alive . There are other characters that are secondary characters other that are part of this story, BUT it a story in it self The . Enter Sir Edward , he is healing from a love loss he meets up with Jules who also is licking his romantic wounds. Jules has plans for our Lady Star, Sir Edward is surprised that while trying to keep Jules from Star he wants her himself . So the story unfolds. It sounds simple yes but this author has as usual written a story that you would not think would be engrossing from the storyline, BUT she has done it again. This is a must read and I give 5 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars To lose at love... January 29, 2014
By Jutzie
Format:Kindle Edition
Lady Star by Claudy Conn
Sir Edward Danton has lost the girl he thought he loved and is going off to hide for a while. In Rye, he runs into his old friend Jules, who is also coming to hide out with his supposed broken heart after being thrown over for another. Jules has a plan though, Star Berkley. Edward didn't think the gal was any good for his friend, what surprised him was that he wanted her for himself.

Star Berkley was in the country with her brother Vern instead of taking London by storm. Not only was Vern ill, he was burdened with money issues their father had left behind. In his desperation Vern had turned to the wrong people. Seems there could be worse things than losing your home, much worse.

If you read Claudy Conn's book, Wildfire Kiss, you would have already met Sir Edward Danton as he thinks that Lady Babs might be the love of his life. She thought different. This story has some exciting secondary characters along with the main ones. Her brother Vern, Miles Denning who is lover of all women, Jules and Georgina. There is romance and intrigue and a storyline that grabs hold of you from beginning and does not let go until the very end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invigorating embers burn to an explosive climax! February 4, 2014
By Spanky
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Superb writing! Riveting storyline! Lifelike characters! The imagery was very well-defined and the voice was delightfully articulate. I would love to give Lady Star few more stars! :) The love between the hero and heroine is achingly beautiful and wildly passionate! I was fully involved in the story from start to finish. I kept reading because I NEEDED to know what was going to happen next. Claudy Conn's style is captivating! She has cost me many hours of sleep. I know this is a books that I will read again and again. I look forward to spending more time with the characters. I will defiantly be eagerly waiting more from her!
I highly recommend this book!

2.0 out of 5 stars Where are the Punctuation Police when you need them? February 20, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Actually, I didn't give this book 2 stars because of all the misplaced and missing commas or the multitude of ellipsis marks. Nor for the use of "I" instead of "me" as an object. Not even because the author says things like "deducted" when she meant "deduced".

Nope, this story gets 2 stars on its merits as a story. It's pedestrian, repetitive, rather silly and not very historical. The characters are not well drawn and most seem to have been taken from my local high school, dressed up in period costume, and sent off into this story to do whatever it is they're doing here.

There's a hero who I assume was a bit of a jerk in a previous Conn book and now will be given the chance to redeem himself in this one. He almost blows that chance, but in his defense I must say he may be the best character in the book. (But that's not saying a whole lot. Remember the rest of them came from my local high school. He's at least a graduate.)

The heroine is a young, beautiful, innocent but adventurous (kinda) young woman and her best friend is ditto all this plus being a women's rights advocate (somewhat). There's also a rather useless brother of the heroine, who is trying to keep their estate from financial ruin and going about it all the wrong way. Plus a bunch of suitors for the lovely girls. Suitors who, BTW, seem to fall in and out of "love" with one or another woman just whimsically, making all final declarations of love much less convincing.

We also have some bad guys doing bad stuff, with an attempt by the author to do authentic period lower-class speech for them. Their nefarious doings plus all the romantic mix-ups are the gist of the whole story.

This may be worth the price I paid ($0.00) but I regret the time I spent reading it.
