Overall I absolutely love this book and want to get my hands on some more by this author, however it took me three tries to start the book and get into it. The first chapter/intro is too long and overwhelming with too many characters and titles all going on at once, but once you get past the first chapter it all starts to make sense. Some real great comic twists and sensual moments. Overall a fabulous read, just give it some patience.

A lovely historical romance set in Bath has it all: an English Lord, spunky Irish Heroine, love, sex, danger and various misunderstandings. But wait! This Lord is no spring chicken, has only has one arm, and is rather uptight. Our Heroine is not what she seems and can twist a story (and also a Lord) around with Irish eloquence and panache. Unexpectedly I laughed, and enjoyed each surprising turn of the plot. I am a romance addict, and this is in my top 10 of all time favorites. And I mean that I read a book a day and this is it. While set in the formulaic romance pattern nothing in this story is as expected or predictable. Buy, laugh, be surprised and enjoy.

Ok here is why it is a mixed review - At first I could not stand the introduction of so many character and the weird conversation at the society parties. Then I started to love the book when knew all back stories for all the character it all did fit and some great lesson were learned. The main story was about Cosima Vaughn who is Irish with lots of English Ton connection. She meets Benedict Wayborn who you love to hate. Benedict want to marry so he starts looking and asking everyone who might say yes. He falls for Cosima/Cherry and that is were starts to get interesting. I found myself wanting to get back to book to find out what the cast of characters were up too... Take a chance.

I would also suggest; Simply Scandalous (Zebra Debut) and Surrender to Sin.

I thought that the beginning was a bit far fetched, but it had me laughing and I did enjoy the way that the heroine took the hero down a few pegs after he was so pompous. I liked the way that he loosened up and couldn't help but fall in love with the heroine and I liked the fact that the heroine didn't pretend not to like or love him. I thought at the beginning that it did have some flaws, but then I couldn't put it down until I finished it, so I think that over all it was pretty good!

I think it takes a certain gift to write a romance novel that contains such comic parlor antics and some historical facts of interest. Oh yes it's still quite sexy and not for the faint of heart in that respect. The perfect mix. My only regret it ended too quickly. Laugh out loud fun.

i usually don't last long with regencies since most are boring and have hypocritical rake heros and stupid virgin heroines, and this book, yes doesn't have an admirable hero since he wants to make the heroine (who he mistakes as a servant) as his mistress, but i couldn't put the book down. it was very funny!!! It's like the "Barber of Seville" comedy opera mixed with "who's on first" with mistaken identities galore and the heroine who is refreshingly not being written as being so pure and noble but much more human in that she takes the hero's money and robs him blind, of course but to help her poor family. The hero is none-too-bright but still can't stay away from the heroine. I couldn't put the story down and this is saying something considering I usually like fast-paced stories and this story is definitely fast paced and keeps you right in the heat of the action. It is well-written by the author. If the hero was a bit more admirable, I'd give it a 5 star.

I really wanted to like this book, but it didn't happen. For one the title really has nothing to do with the book and that annoys me when they just use a title that will draw attention rather than something that is related to the book. Secondly, there was way to many secondary characters in this book that in the first couple of chapters I got lost trying to figure out who everyone. The plot well I think it started out well, but the book needed to focus on them and not them and every other person. There was just a lot of unnessary "twists" that just distracted from the main overall picture that I believe the author was trying to convey.

The end was crap as well. Overall the book I believe had potential, but didn't go in the right direction with this book. I wish the author luck on the next one. Just please don't feel the entire book with people. Short and simple is the best way to go especially if you have a decent idea.

I found this book in a box of books from a friend whose friend was cleaning out her summer cabin. I wasn't expecting much. Was I wrong! I was laughing out loud from the very beginning at the vivid characterizations, the descriptions of the appearance of the various characters, all sorts of dry observations made with a tongue in cheek attitude. How is it I've never read anything by this author? How could I have missed her so completely? Well, no more. I'll search out more by this author! She is a treasure. I even found fewer grammatical mistakes than I'm used to... there was a bad patch of "lie" and "lay" late in the book.

Now, of course, I can't give a totally positive review. It is against my crabby nature. I thought the plot element that included the illegitimate half sister "Cherry" was a little forced. I kept wanting to say, "R-i-i-i-ght." Still, Cherry served her purpose in the end. So, I suppose she was OK. I still loved the book, and I never expected to.
