The Pursuit of Lady Harriet by Rachael Anderson.

This book is just as good as the earlier ones!

The Pursuit of Lady Harriet by Rachael Anderson is very entertaining. The story starts just after where the last one left off.

In The Rise of Miss Notley, Lady Harriet is left at Tanglewood while the newlyweds go on honeymoon. A friend of Jonathan shows up while they are still gone and this is the story of what happens.

It was a really fun read. I did think Christopher needed to be slapped a few times, but eventually Lady Harriet does convince him to be more considerate. Too bad she waited so long, but I guess better late than never. I enjoyed the way she told him off too. She was actually pretty nice about it.

Really liked the way that happened. She climbed a tree! That was cool. I love the way the characters in these books seem like folks you might meet just anywhere.

Good read!

About the book:

When wills clash and hearts collide, who will reign victorious?

Termed an Incomparable during her first London season, Lady Harriett Cavendish is beautiful, spirited, and confident, capturing the attention of a great many suitors. Unfortunately, they all failed to capture her attention, and she concluded the season as unattached as she’d begun it.

Only weeks prior to her second season, Harriett encounters Lieutenant Christopher Jamison while visiting Tanglewood Manor. Recently returned from war, the lieutenant is everything that Harriett’s previous suitors were not. He’s arrogant, ungentlemanly, irritating, and challenges her at every opportunity. When he goes too far, Harriett decides that it’s time to turn the tables on him. But as she sets out to put the lieutenant in his place once and for all, she discovers there is more to him than meets the eye, and when it comes to matters of the heart, she has no control whatsoever.

EXCERPT

Harriett looked at what remained of the cake. Appar-ently, he didn’t intend to finish it off after all, so she collected their forks and stood. “Forgive me for saying so, but you look quite done in, Chris. If you do not go up to bed now, you will probably fall asleep here. Only imagine what Mrs. Caddy might say if she discovers you here with the mostly-eaten cake. For your own sake, you ought to retire. I will do my best to tidy things up.”
Before she could move away from him, he grabbed her hand and guided her to sit back down, keeping hold of her fingers. “Not so fast, my lady. I meant it when I said that I’m in desperate need of the distraction that only you can provide. Thus far, all I have done is burden you with my troubles.”
“I do not feel at all burdened, sir.” Indeed, Harriett suddenly felt breathless and somewhat giddy. The effect this man had on her was something of a wonder.
“Sir?” he asked. “I thought we were beyond that.”
“I thought so as well, but you only just called me ‘my lady.’”
He frowned and blinked as though he hadn’t realized he had. “Forgive me, Harry. I fear my exhaustion has muddled my thinking.”
This time, she did not let the name slide. She snatched her hand free and frowned at him. “Obviously it has.”
He laughed—not a tired attempt at a laugh, but a real one filled with the richness that warmed her straight through. Only this time, it did not bother her at all. In fact, it felt wonderful, almost like a compliment.
“I knew you’d come through for me,” he said, leaning close enough to touch shoulders with her. “You have no idea how much I needed to laugh or how good that felt. I could honestly kiss you right now.”
Harriett tried her best not to blush or appear astonished by the suggestion—he had obviously made the comment in jest—but when his smile widened into a devilish grin, she knew she’d failed. He leaned in closer, and his gaze wandered briefly to her mouth before returning to her eyes. She could smell vanilla and lemon and a hint of something else—leather perhaps? A delightful pulse whipped down her arm, and she was hard-pressed not to shiver.
“Admit it,” he said. “You have missed me.”

The corners of the man’s eyes crinkled in a mild show of amusement. “Lady Harriett, I presume?” Rather than look at her with appreciation as most men did, he appeared amused.

At her nod, he tucked his hands behind his back, remaining a few steps above her. “I am Lieutenant Christopher Jamison, an old friend of Jonathan’s.”

“I was expecting you days ago,” she answered. “Lord Jonathan charged me with the unhappy task of informing you he and his new bride are currently away on their wedding trip. He is sorry he cannot be here to meet with you and has asked that I relay his apologies.”

“May I inquire as to how long they will be away?” he asked.

No, you may not, she wanted to say. Her neck was beginning to ache from looking up at him, but she forced her gaze to remain steady. “They expected to be gone a fortnight, sir.”

“And they have been gone how long, exactly?”

She felt an unaccountable hesitancy to tell him. “A week.”

“Ah.” He sounded disappointed but seemed to take the news in stride, glancing at Charlie as though wondering whether he ought to retrieve his horse or not. Harriett prayed that he would.

When his gaze strayed back to her, he took the unwelcome, and ungentlemanly, liberty of perusing her figure. When his eyes met hers again, his lips twitched into a slight smile. “Forgive me, my lady, but you appear to have had a run-in with a mud puddle and lost.”

How kind of him to point that out. Harriett kept her hands at her side rather than attempt to brush the dirt from her face and pelisse yet again. The damage was done, and no amount of brushing or shaking would remove the muck. What she needed was a hot bath and a change of clothes.

“Actually, sir, I was merely an innocent bystander.”

“Indeed?”

She picked up her skirts and ascended the steps, stopping on the stair above him so that she was eye level with him. “Are you always such a reckless rider, sir? Do you not pay heed to your surroundings?”

“Of course I do.”

“If you had, you would have seen me standing at the side of the road and, I would hope, thought to slow your animal down so as to not splash mud all over my pelisse.”

Her chilly set down did not have the desired effect. He did not appear the least bit repentant. Rather, he looked ready to burst into laughter. “And your face, apparently.” He leaned forward and squinted. “If I’m not mistaken, there is a splash or two of mud on your bonnet as well.”

Harriett glared at him. “How observant you are, Lieutenant Jamison. One can only wonder why you didn’t put that skill to good use earlier. If you had, perhaps my pelisse, face, and bonnet would still be clean.”

“I am always observant, my lady,” he said. “But might I suggest that if you would like to be noticed at the side of the road, you should wear a color that does not blend so perfectly with your surroundings. That particular shade of green looks quite lovely on you, but only someone with the eyes of an eagle would have spotted you in front of a landscape of evergreens.”

Harriett opened her mouth to respond, but no words were forthcoming. The man did not even attempt to behave like a gentleman. How could he be so . . . so . . .

“Have you no apology to offer, sir?” she finally spluttered.

“Oh, did I not apologize? Forgive me.”

“For what? Forgetting to apologize or for not doing so in the first place?”

Romancing Daphne By Sarah M. Eden Review

Cover of Romancing Daphne by Sarah M. Eden.This is a good book! It is well written and the characters are very likeable. Except for one, but there is always at least one bad apple. Every family has one. If they are lucky it is only one.

It is a regency romance, but don’t let that put you off if you haven’t ever read one of those. Or even if you have and didn’t care for it. This book is good enough that you won’t really notice the historical stuff.

I liked Daphne. I used to be as shy as she is. She has more courage than I did. Not sure I could have gone to parties and actually had conversations with people, but she does a good job of it even though it scares her. I admire that.

The other characters are pretty cool too. Reading Daphne’s story, got me wondering how she got to be the Dukes ward, so I am reading Seeking Persephone and Courting Miss Lancaster. Those are about her older sisters and I expect they are good too.

I’m hoping there will be more in this series. There is one more sister to write about, and a brother, and all the kids. Lots of good stories!

I hope the Duke has a daughter, they were expecting a child in this story, and watching him guard her would be even better than the way he did his sisters-in-law. Poor man will probably go nuts.

About the book:

As her first London Season looms before her, the thought of the impending social whirl fills Daphne Lancaster’s timid heart with dread. She hasn’t her sisters beauty nor their talent for conversing easily. Even her family’s enviable connections may not be enough to prevent disaster.

But Daphne’s misery turns to surprised delight when the first event of her Season brings an unexpected visitor to her door—James Tilburn, whose tender kindness stole her heart in her youth. When the handsome young gentleman expresses his desire to court her, Daphne is elated. Their feelings for each other quickly grow, and it appears that, much to Daphne s disbelief, her happily ever after is within reach.

Yet nothing is as it seems. The couple finds themselves caught in a tangled web of greed and deceit, leaving James and Daphne to determine whether they are willing to risk everything for true love.

Lord Trowbridge’s Angel By G.G. Vandagriff Review

Lord Trowbridge's Angel cover picture.I love historical romance. Especially regency romance. If you also like those types of stories you should love this book.

It was really good. The characters are likeable and the story will keep you interested.

The characters get into a bit of trouble and there is a romantic tangle to sort out as well.

One thing I really liked is that you don’t know until the end exactly how it is all going to get straightened out. The author keeps you wondering (and interested) the whole way.

About the book :

The very handsome and very bored Lord Trowbridge knows something is missing in his existence. When he is asked by a friend to escort the seemingly quiet Miss Sophie Edwards to her first ball, he has no idea she possesses the key that will unlock him. It is her secret weapon.

Once he sees his own inner workings, his life unfolds in a different manner. He will do anything to capture the love of his “angel.” Unfortunately, his old life and the shibboleths of the ton stand in his way. As he wades through these afflictions, Sophie is courted by another man. Who will she choose? How can he possibly show his love for her in a way as original and unique as she is? What are Sophie’s feelings for him?

You can get your own copy on  Amazon.

From the Author : Picture of author G.G. Vandagriff.

I realize that I am one of those rare people in the world who gets to live a life full of passion, romance, suspense, angst, fulfillment, humor, and mystery. I am a writer. Every day when I sit down at my computer, I enter into a world of my own making. I am in the head of a panoply of characters ranging from a nineteen-year-old Austrian debutante (The Last Waltz) to a raging psychopath (The Arthurian Omen) and four women at once in The Only Way to Paradise. Then there are the feisty heroines of my Regency romances . . .
I am a traditionally published,award-winning, best-selling writer who has recently gone Indie. I enjoy genre-hopping, having published a genealogical mystery series, two women’s fiction novels, an historical epic, two suspense novels, five Regency romances, and a couple of non-fiction offerings.
With a BA from Stanford and an MA from George Washington University in International Relations, I somehow stumbled into finance. But, once my husband was through law school, I never wanted to do anything but write and raise kids. Now the kids are gone, but (even better) there are four grandchildren who provide my rewards for finishing a manuscript.

Aside from the grandchildren, my favorite things include: Florence, Italy; snow storms; Oreos; real hot chocolate; sweaters; Sundance Resort; lilacs; and dachshunds.

Cotillion by Georgette Heyer Review

Cotillion by Georgette Heyer Review

This is a wonderful book. I think it is my favorite of her books. I like all the characters in it even the “bad” guy.

The good guy is one of her Mark II heroes. He isn’t thought of as being really smart but he turns out to be smart enough. He is a very rich and of course high ranking.

His name is Freddy and he does not need a rich wife and doesn’t at all want to be married, but he agree to become engaged after his great uncle decides to leave his money(a lot of it!) to his ward Kitty, if she marries one of his great-nephews. And if she didn’t marry one of them…to leave her penniless.

Of course Kitty was only trying to make his cousin Jack jealous because she expected him to ask for her hand in marriage.

This is a really fun book to read. The ending is really wonderful too. Everyone learns a lesson especially Jack.

This is a comfort read for those rainy days when you want to just cuddle up with some hot chocolate and escape from the world.

From the back cover :

                                       A most unusual hero

Freddy is immensely rich, of course, and not bad-looking, but he’s mild-mannered, a bit hapless–not anything like his virile, handsome, rakish cousin Jack…

                           A heroine in a difficult situation

Yound Kitty Charing stands to inherit a vast fortune from her irascible and eccentric guardian–profided she marries one of his great-nephews…

                                       A sham betrothal

No sooner does Kitty arrive in London than the race for her hand begins, but between confirmed rakes and bumbling affections, Kitty needs a daring scheme.

About the Author : Georgette Heyer (1902-1974) wrote over fifty novels, including Regency romances, mysteries, and historical fiction. She was known as the Queen of Regency romance, and was legendary for her research, historical accuracy, and her extraordinary plots and characterizations.

A Civil Contract by Georgette Heyer Review

A Civil Contract by Georgette Heyer.A Civil Contract is a really good book. It is the sort of book you can read over and over. I know because I have! This was I think the 7th time I read it.

I like having books like that for when I’m sick or really tired and have trouble concentrating. When you are feeling bad you don’t want something that you have to think about or that takes a lot of energy. You want something comfortable.

This is one of those books. It is entertaining but doesn’t require a lot of thought. Perfect for snuggling up in the recliner for an afternoon.

This one is about a Nobleman who’s father dies suddenly leaving him with a lot of debts and a couple of sisters to provide for. He is going to have to sell his ancestral home and will still have debts.

His “man of business” tells him he should marry a heiress to keep from losing everything. He doesn’t like that idea. The father of the girl he had planned to wed agrees with this though and sends a rich man he knows to talk to him.

He marries the rich mans daughter and in the end that turns out to be the best thing he could have done. There is lots of interesting story before you get to the end though.

I love most of Goergette Heyers  other romances too. They do not have any heavy sex scenes and her characters are almost all likable and the few are that not are the bad guys. Which makes it fun to dislike them.

If you like clean romances check this book out and any other of her books you come across. Most libraries have a few. She wrote some mysteries that are pretty good too.

Are You a Georgette Heyer Fan?

If you are a Georgette Heyer fan you should go visit Laura’s Reviews. She is giving away a couple of Georgette Heyer books in honor of the Royal Wedding. Tomorrow (May 6th) is the last day to enter.

 

In case you don’t know…Georgette Heyer wrote a whole bunch of Regency Romance books. She also wrote a few mysterys.  I have read quite a few of her books and I liked every one. She makes her characters seem like people you might meet anywhere. She makes them seem real and likable. She also had a great sense of humor and it shows in her books. If you are looking for something different to read Georgette Heyer is a good choice.
