I first picked up Viscount Vagabond in my local library while I was in high school. I fell in love with Loretta Chase's voice and style. Her characters are witty and complex. They are no just the typical hero and heroine. She writes with humor and a sense of fun.

I picked up this as soon as it came out. I'm glad that her back issue books are coming out.

If you like romance, you should definitely pick up Loretta Chase's novels. These earlier books are really sweet.

In Viscount Vagabond, Lord Rand is a reluctant hero to Catherine Pelliston. Through a series of unfortunate events, Catherine ends up in a house if ill repute. He saves her and takes her under his wing. Of course he is determined to send her on her way. He is in no way falling in love with her. At all. Of course, Catherine doesn't want to marry him either.

Viscount Vagabond is a delight I love how the characters dance around each other.

The Devil's Delilah continues with one of the characters from Viscount Vagabond who finds love himself.

Both stories are VERY enjoyable. If you are in the mood for great Regency writing, please pick this book.

Viscount Vagabound has a typical hero's character, handsome, rich, proud a man's man. In contrast, The DEVIL's Delilah has the most refreshing hero I have read in all of the romance novel. Instead of your typical handsome, sneering, brute we have Jack, an extremely shy, stuttering book worm who uses his intelligence to get his Delilah. This book his funny and is closer to reality than other romantic novels.

These two books are linked by shared characters. They are quite different but both very funny. I had expected to enjoy Viscount Vagabond more than the other half of this compilation, but ultimately, the scales tipped a little more to Devil's Delilah.

Plot twists and a lively group of characters - good guys and a few bad guys - moved both books into the can't-put-down category. I developed an affection for the villains of both books and would have liked to have seen the antagonist of the Devil's Delilah get his comeuppance and redemption in a subsequent book.

Both books had unusual, if not unique, heroes and heroines and well defined families - good and bad. Both books had some "the rest of the story" characters. One wonders if the author had written a book about the sister of the viscount of Viscount Vagabond, but we have the obvious shared affection of her mature marriage in this one. Delilah's father, Devil, and his beautiful wife are recognizable as the semi-reformed rake and his young bride from many Regencies who've grown older but just as wise and just as in love.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
While I have found some of her more recent work to be more routine, Loretta Chase writes remarkably well books with intricate plots. These two books are delightful. As the Viscount Vagabond works his way to realizing he is in love, and Catherine learns he's nothing like her father. The lead characters are supported by a fully developed cast of supporting characters, that we would like to learn more about.

Devil's Delilah introduces us to a rare treat, Delilah's father, a former romance novel hero type, now a somewhat reformed rake aging gracefully. Again, we know and understand the most evil of the characters. We wish for a prequel with Devil's love story and would like to see the woman who takes Tony, who never met a woman he didn't want to seduce except when his father wants him to.

Find it if you can.

I think I started at the top with Loretta Chase's Knave's Wager. In trying some of her other books, I have been more or less happy with the time and money spent. I liked the idea of the bookworm hero so I read Devil's Delilah first and really enjoyed it. Although, at first, I had high hopes for Viscount Vagabond as well, ultimately, I was seriously put off by the villain and his unrealistic-but-still-very-unpleasant ways (spoiler: how could he possibly be the h's father's best friend and return home after his actions in London?). I found ideas to earmark in both books, and I laughed and swooned at both, but I wouldn't buy, read, or recommend Viscount Vagabond now.
