Book Description

Come back to a time when manners are everything and rules are made to never be broken. Come back to a time when men are in charge and women do what they are told. . .
Yeah, that never happened.
Welcome to Megan Bryce's Regencyland, where ladies with backbone get what they want. Where a woman can thumb her nose at rules and care little for convention, and yet somehow, unexpectedly and most reluctantly, find love.

To Tame A Dragon

Lady Amelia Delaney is known for her sharp tongue, no-nonsense attitude, and sizable fortune. Numerous suitors have tried to win her hand for the money, for the challenge, and for a rather unfortunate bet. She knows the unflattering reasons behind her numerous proposals– can she ever accept that a man would want to marry her just for herself?

Jameson Pendrake is a devil-may-care dandy who cares for naught but fun and fashion. But behind his laughing green eyes lies a dark history, and he calls off his wedding because of his fear of repeating the past. He can not simply give up on the idea of marriage– a wife is the best defense against the yearly crop of scheming mothers and their frilly daughters. But to allay his fears he needs a woman strong enough to laugh in the face of his past. A woman unflappable, unwavering, and unbroken. He knows just the woman. The trick, it seems, is in getting her to accept.

4.0 out of 5 stars Light, feel-good romance November 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Similar to her book `To Catch a Spinster', this story is about a strong woman who has no desire to be tied down.

It is a light-hearted, feel-good book and perhaps not for history purists.

Lady Amelia Delaney is an heiress who values her independence, regularly turning down marriage proposals in a way that earns her the nickname of the `dragon'. She has been close to her brother's friend Jameson Pendrake since childhood and has no qualms about telling him what a cad he is when he cancels his wedding to the sweet Miss Underwood.

In the wake of his `scandalous' behaviour, Jameson suddenly realises that the perfect woman has been in his sights all along: his best friend, Amelia. He admires, respects and loves her; she knows all of his demons and accepts him for the person he is. The trouble is that Amelia finds his proposal utterly ridiculous.
His challenge is to make Amelia see how perfectly matched they are.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars December 1, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I was a little hesitant about reading this after being disappointed by "to catch a spinster," but when I saw I could borrow this book for free on my kindle, I decided to give it a shot. The overall story was better than "to catch a spinster" but it didnt have the magic the first half of "to catch a spinster" had with h/h. Although some silly things happened in this book, I was laughing out loud - it was just so funny, even if some scenes were unbelievable. One example was the four Underwood brothers proposing to Amelia - hilarious! Another is Jameson's horse and cane - lol.

This book though has something I wish the last book had so that the author had better reasons to fill up the pages than just focusing all the attention on h/h - this book had a second story with Miss Underwood - the woman Jameson broke up his engagement with. Amelia was determined to find her a more suitable husband and though it was predictable who she would end up with, it was a good choice.

***SPOILER - however, I think it was best to find Miss Underwood a husband first before Amelia married Jameson.***

Also this book had a very good reason why the bride should be reluctant yet unlike the heroine in the first book who should have given in sooner - this heroine did instead! I think Amelia gave in too soon after all she's been through and knowing Jameson. Also while the affection between the two was undeniable - I dont know if they were in love. I did like Amelia and Jameson together, even though I felt they were more friends than lovers - or maybe this is due to the lack of sex scenes - but either way you could tell they would be content in their marriage.

Overall, I though the story was ok.

I enjoyed it. It contained humor, romance, continuity of story without dragging. Will probably read more by
Ms. Bryce if this is an indication of her writing.

After reading the first book in this series, "To Catch A Spinster," I was left with an awful taste in my mouth. As much as I wanted to read a familiar, well-known author in an attempt to cleanse my Kindle pallet, I decided to give Ms. Bryce the benefit of the doubt and try the second book. I already had it in my library as a previous free selection, so what did I have to lose?

Oh my. I didn't "lose" anything, but I did waste precious reading time, which is even worse.

This book is just very poorly written. The plot is unlikely and frankly, nonsensical. The ending is just...well, odd and unsatisfying. The characters have very few redeeming qualities. There are so many historical romance books out there, even as free selections, that are head and shoulders above this poor attempt at the genre.

Amelia has been given the nickname "the dragon" by the men of the ton. Apparently, it is because she is rather assertive and turns down proposals with regularity. How this makes her a dragon, I'm not quite sure. I'd call it being choosy. At some point, there was some man that attempted to take advantage of her and get her in a compromising situation in order to gain her fortune, but the whole topic is only vaguely discussed. Why even bother? It doesn't appear to really have an impact on her personality.

After bailing out a long-time family friend from a potentially ruinous situation, she finds herself the object of his affection. Lord Nighting, although handsome (although he's never really described in detail so I guess we have to take the author's word for it), is irresponsible and often reprehensible. Not exactly a adventageous match.

5.0 out of 5 stars Different but fun December 17, 2012
By SamCat
Format:Kindle Edition
Not your typical tale but witty fun and charming. I picked it up for free but feel it is worth the small price. The removal of the underlying sadness which provided a happy ending for both was well done also. If you want to laugh and cry give this one a try.
