Lord Humphrey has a plan..find an heiress with the one hundred thousand pounds he needs to setup a respectable gaming hall.
Lord Humphrey has found an heiress...he only has one problem...
Lord Humphrey has a conscious.... he has nothing in common with the heiress but great admiration for her companion.
Mary Kingwood has created wonderful main characters that has the reader cheering for a happy ending for all involved.
I was provided with an ARC copy and was asked but not required to provide an honest review. I have read both books in this series as well as all of the books in the original series, The Daughters of Allmont Hall. I can honestly say Lord Humphrey is one of my favorite characters. I look forward to reading the next book in this series, Lord Augustus.
Ms Kingswood is one of the few who has accomplished just that. While no one can ever be Heyer, Ms Kingswood is certainly as close as a mere mortal can be. Her series all feature unique characters and the situations are new and inspired. I always sit and read them in one sitting anxiously awaiting the next.
In this we meet Lord Humphrey who is looking for a rich heiress to fund his dream of owning a gambling den. He quickly narrows his choice down to just one lucky lady and this is where the fun and intrigue ensue.
Connie, Lord Humphrey sis-in-law invites the object of his affection to a house party. However, it seems the more Lord Humphrey is drawn more to his heiresses companion than the heiress herself. He finds himself caught between true affection and sensibility.
This was such a fun story and I fell in love with each and every character. The story comes alive for the reader and you are anxious to become more immersed in their lives. I look forward to the next Mary Kingswood book.
In this like in each of her books within a series, Mary Kingswood focusses on her two main protagonists. Their characters usually undergo some development, but just lightly and more for them to understand that they are meant for each other; the others in that particular book are just as they are (and usually have to wait until it is their turn to become main protagonists for a change in attitude or circumstance). Don’t expect high drama. But Mary’s descriptions are profoundly pleasant, like an afternoon walk in one of those lovely English summer gardens that one of the heroines may take. There is always some nice side story about the greater family or village or so, and very quirky supporting characters. Different from some of the books I have found in this and other entertaining genres, the text is well written and seems to have undergone some proofreading.
Now usually I enjoy Mary’s books, but in each of them I have difficulties to find the flow and come to be interested in the people during the first quarter of the book; nice to read, but I only get hooked later on. That means, during the first part of the book I tend to compare it with the one before and find it lacking; that only changes later on. In “Lord Humphrey” that was different, I got interested right away. That may partly have been because I had just finished “Lord Reginald” and was in the flow, but possibly because I can sympathize better with the couple in “Lord Humphrey”. Definitely a very nice book. I won’t tell you more not to spoil the fun.
Can you read it out of order? Yes, you can read it perfectly well without knowing the other characters of the Allamont/Marford universe, but it is nicer to start from the beginning and get to know all the family, and to be better able to follow the side stories.
The heroine in the story was really fun and spunky. It was fun to watch the two protagonists get to know each other and fall in love.
