    Okay so I only read 52 pages of this 150 page novel so maybe it's not fair to rate it but the writing was just so bad The characters were always contradicting themselves and were not convincing in the least The author seems to believe that piling together a bunch of Regency era cliches and a few dukes duchesses and maruises a regency novel makes but oh It was kind of painful to read and honestly an embarrassment to this genre

    Kate and Jack meet through a mutual friend Caro who Jack had just proposed to Caro thinks of jack as a brother but not husband material Both Kate and Jack need a marriage of convenience to get to their fortunes Will they make it that far with traitors shooting at Jack?

    I have lukewarm feelings towards this novel Neither of the lead characters are appealing Kate acts like a shrew the whole time and never gives Jack a break Jack's character changes abruptly after the initial introduction When he is introduced he seems like an immature boy We're then told he's a noted Corinthian and a rogue but I am not sure what makes him so because he's never seen doing anything that goes along with either of those personas Then all of a sudden he has his own sub plot that really doesn't seem likely for the young man the reader is first introduced to It confused me a lot and I had to make sure I didn't skip any pages or even a whole book Jack and Kate never talk about their true feelings even in the rare moments they have a chance The plot seems like it's the usual mystery involving spies and smugglers but it takes twists and turns that I didn't expect I liked the brief cameo appearances by characters from the first novel Another plus is that it's clean than the previous book in the trilogy There are some sensual scenes but nothing smutty Overall this story didn't thrill me I didn't hate it but I didn't love it I noticed a number of errors in the Kindle edition The third book in the series had better be the best or I will feel like I wasted my money

    35I liked this one; I thought it was a fun light hearted regency Our heroine Kate was likable Very headstrong and used to doing things her own way She starts out a little spoiled being the only child and pampered by her loving father As the story progresses though she is thrown into a different world and forced to see things in a new way I liked her relationship with our hero Jack Kate needs to marry to secure her fortune and to take guardianship of her brother She has little respect for English men and wants to find a marriage of convenience with a man who is easy to boss around Jack is definitely not that man He is courageous strong willed and doesn’t like Kate get by with much He is also crazy about Kate right from the start I liked that he loved her even though she could drive him nuts I thought they had a nice relationship I thought the story was good; it even contained a couple villains Although one of the villains left a bit to be desired I guess he just didn’t come across as “evil” as he was supposed to Overall a fun regency Content Clean There is some mild innuendo and the couple marries but any relations are kept vague and are behind closed doors

    Kate thinks she is still in love with her first love the Italian Francesco but her father's Will forbids her to marry him She could live without the money but if she marries Francesco she will leave her young stepbrother in the guardianship of her cousin Freddie who thinks he should be shipped off to Eton So she goes to London to find a husband Not believing Englishmen to be passionate like her beloved Italian Francesco she is only looking for a marriage of convenience someone who will be a kind guardian to her young stepbrotherJack needs to marry to receive his inheritance His dear childhood friend Caroline has refused him because she wants to marry for love So he is off to London and once Caroline introduces him to her friend Kate his life will never be the sameUnwittingly they put each other's lives in danger as Jack pursues traitors and tries to keep Kate in the dark about this other life of his But with danger comes the opportunity to save each otherContent PG Clean some innuendoSource com

    Kate is a great character and I really liked her flaws and all She's whisked away to London determined to marry uickly seeking only a convenient marriage so she can have custody of her step brother who is sent away to certain bullying at school She's a bit spoiled in a doting way from her late father plus she treasures her memories of time spent in Italy and she compares everything to it Enter Jack who has previously shown no interest in marriage except in wanting access to his inheritance His life is a little complicated with his work When these two show true interest in one another their initial motives muddle everything I liked the story and the way things go wrong before they're put right It's a story with a good first impression chase scandal marriage of convenience misunderstanding and a love match So there are no unwelcome surprises uite a bit of time is focused on the attraction between them with a fades to black after they're married

    G G Vandergriff has crafted a competently written light and frothy romance Somewhat different than her usual style Vandergriff admirably lends herself to the romance writers' craftRead full review in the 2012 Holiday issue of InD’tale Magazine

  8. Lisa Montgomery Lisa Montgomery says:

    Generally I liked the story and I would give it a 37 not a 4 There are two reasons for the lower scale First Ms Vandagriff works hard to have this tale follow Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew Sometimes different time periods mean the stories do not match up Secondly there were things out of place in time For example dance cards were Victorian than Regency The story is set at the beginning of the Regency in 1810 The Regency era began in 1811 when Prince George became the Regent for King George III Likewise the waltz as it was used in this tale was not brought over to England until 1812 According to Cheryl A Wilson Most dance historians cite 1812 as the year of the waltz’s entrée into London although waltz music had been part of the ballroom repertoire for several decades Indeed a number of popular country dances were set to waltz music such as “The Duke of Kent’s Waltz” which was named for ueen Victoria’s father and known to be a favorite dance of Jane AustenTerms such as soup kitchen feels too modern to fit the story There were also phrases that spoke of two peers running into one another First one another means three not two people Secondly the term again sounds too modern On my Kindle the story stops at 88% The rest is back matter

  9. Wendy Wendy says:

    Another fun book I like the author’s style and the adaptation of Taming of the Shrew The characters were somewhat two dimensional but I didn’t find it really annoying because it was just an enjoyable read with a lot of excitement—again a bit of a mixture of gothic romance and Regency romance I empathized with Kate and John because they both did think they were doing the right thing I love how impossibly weird things happen such as Kate’s Italian lover actually showing up and it works Actually both characters were pretty introspective and did go through change so they weren’t really all that two dimensional after all And I loved the ending It just showed how someone’s environmental situation can really effect their behavior The whole time Kate worried about Joey but And her insistence that John’s mother stay in the redecorated house so she could have happy memories there I loved their first meeting

  10. Cristy McCormick Cristy McCormick says:

    This book was written differently that I had initially imagined which was a good thing That being said I really felt a lack of emotion in the characters and the writing which made it difficult to relate to the characters I also found that the book was pretty cut and dry straight forward There were no twists or turns and it was really easy to predict what was going to happen It was a good book for being a free book that I got off bookbubcom but it wasn't one that I would pick up and re read again unless I was just out of material to read Maybe if I had read the first book I would feel differently but I was told that this one was ok to read as a standalone I never felt that I was missing anything from having not read the first book but I think there could have been substance in this one overall
