Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Lady Grace Belmont is in town for her first and only season before she is married off to a nice but distracted neighbor. Although she begged for one chance to see London before getting hitched for life, her height and lush figure make her feel extremely awkward. David Wilton, Baron Dawson, takes one look at the beautiful Amazon across the room and is smitten. He’s in town to find a wife, and Grace fits the bill. They do have a rapport and share witty repartee, but they soon realize that their family history is a major obstacle. Grace’s father was jilted by David’s mother; Grace’s aunt and David’s uncle were kept apart by this scandal, and it looks like David and Grace are on the same path. Grace is also loathe to upset her father by leaving his choice for her at the altar, unless David can convince her to follow her heart in this sweet and sexy Regency tale. --Maria Hatton

I do get them from the library, I don't need to own my own copy.

I'll finish the book because I don't like any book to go to waist, but I will be very impatient for it to end.
Amazon Customer
Yes for a historical romance it was a great book for a Sally MacKenzie novel - it wasn't an 5 star.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
At twenty five years of age, Lady Grace Belmont is elated not to be at Blandon where her father is obsessed with marrying her off, but is unhappy to be on display during her first London season as the men stare at her bosom. She knows she is too old, too tall and a bit too plump to have anyone truly interested in her. Grace is especially grateful to her widowed Aunt Kate who is sponsoring and chaperoning her, which keeps Grace away from her father who has been arranging for her a marriage after providing no seasons for his daughter.

However David Wilton, Baron Dawson, observes Grace in a garden and thinks she is the loveliest woman he has ever seen. He tries to steal a kiss from her and plans to court her as he wants her like no one ever before. At the same his Uncle Alex Wilton sees his beloved Kate. Years ago when they were younger than Grace is now, he proposed to her but her martinet father gave her to someone else. Alex plans to try again to win Kate's heart, unaware he always owned it. He also wants to insure history does not repeat itself with his nephew and her niece starring in their former roles.

With two heated Regency romances, Sally Mackenzie provides her readers with a fun, often amusing, but always entertaining novel. The story line is brisk from the onset as the older couple seeks a second chance at love while hoping to steer their younger relatives to an easy landing in a field of love; only their efforts lead to scandal. Readers will appreciate THE NAKED BARON as humor and heat combine for an engaging historical.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
What i find confusing is that she already talked about Grace and Dawson in the previous novel 'The Naked Gentleman'. I hate it when an author does that. Why didn't she just write about Grace and Dawson first, then write about John Parker-Roth and Margaret 'Meg' Peterson? I like the first two books but every one after that has just left me bored and i just couldn't wait until the story ended. I hope this is the last in the naked series so that she can come up with some better stories. This series is not terrible, but it is lacking and i hope she does some better books in the near future. I have not given up on Sally yet, but only time will tell.

If you like Regency novels with a London setting, this one will do for you. Lady Grace Belmont goes to London for the Season for a last hurrah before she must marry the boring Mr. Parker-Roth. Grace feels there is no other choice for her since she sees herself as too tall and her bosom too large--hardly one to attract the attention of any of the titled London men. But she catches the eye of Baron Dawson, who is looking for a wife and rather likes tall women and certainly admires Grace's bosom. And so it goes, round and round and mixing in with Grace and David's merry-go-round of a love match is the problem of Grace's Aunt Kate (her chaperone) and Alex Wilton, David's uncle. They were once very much in love, but Kate left Alex years ago, because of a feud between the two families. Are you surprised to learn that all turns out just swell in the end? Ah, but it wouldn't be an English regency novel if it didn't, eh what? Good escapism.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I've read the other books by Sally Mackenzie and enjoyed most of them. This one was a struggle. I don't mind it when authors head hop maybe once or twice in a chapter (if done smoothly) but his was not and left me scratching my head as to whose head we were currently in. I also found the lack of dialogue tags to be a problem when more two people were in a conversation, especially when she'd use a pronoun instead of a name.

The storyline actually had two romances going on, which really should have been just one because neither of them were covered very well. As for the characters, they were stiff at best with very little conflict that made you want to root for them to make it as a couple--well except that she was engaged to Parks and would jilt him at the altar. But we already knew that was going to happen because of the other, the naked Gentleman.

Anyway, stiff read with lots of head hopping.

Basic Plot: Grace and the Baron see each other across a crowded dance floor and he decides he wants to marry her, but her father was once jilted by the Baron's mother and he hates the family and even influenced her aunt Kate to marry a much older man to keep her from marrying the Baron's Uncle Alex. Alex has always loved Kate and they sleep together and she gets pregnant and they have their love story. It's pretty straight-forward. Grace's father tries to force her to marry the man he chooses for her and drags her away from the Baron and she has to decide if she loves the Baron enough to disappoint her father.

I'm not sure I get why some of the other's were less than fond of this. Yes, the love stories are a bit superficial. For example, both the older and younger sets of lovers had only met a few times before deciding to love each other. In fact, for the Baron and Grace, he experienced love/lust at first sight. I didn't really ind it since none of the characters were particularly strident, amoral, or annoying. No, there isn't much drama involved in this story and that's one of my favorite things about the story. I also liked that the heroine is tall and statuesque instead of being either tall and slim, short and slim, or short and curvy. I can't think of any other similarly built romance heroines. I think Coulter had one years ago. I kinda liked that the Baron (his name is escaping me) liked her large breast since so many romances are about making women with smaller breasts feel better. 2 of my sisters have pretty huge chests and I bet they would definitely identify more with Grace than the typical skinny or hourglass heroines.

So in the end, this book is sort of middle of the road since it does nothing badly and also nothing well. It's proficient, but since it isn't offensive and didn't make me want to throw it across the room, I gave it 4 stars.
