For whatever reason, this is my perfect comfort read It s light and fun, except when it s moving, and it was just what I was in the mood for I borrowed my battered old copy off Becca but we should probably have a copy each for future comforting.
This book had everything I search in Regency romance Wit, nice love story, funny and likeable characters.Rowanne blinked What would Gabe do, challenge the ex officer to a chess match It was a nice reading But Something wasn t right It lacked something, I don t know what Perhaps Metzger didn t spent enough time making the story the whole I really can figure out what made this novel not a better piece.
A sweet story but unlike what you expect from Barbara Metzger, it wasn t funny.
Although I liked the characters in this book, they didn t spend all that much time in the same place together The story follows them over several years which they spend apart, telling their independent storylines with some brief interactions together until near the end So it was unsatisfying in that regard My other main quibble is that there were some serious grammatical errors that should never make their way into a well edited book, particularly dialogue in a historical novel such as character [...]
a sweet, light story with lots of great characters and lots of references to battles from the peninsula war she writes so well that i did connect to the characters but one does feel that it could have been so much deeper her characters are interesting and touch on many issues and emotions, but so lightly as to resemble a farce.
I loved Carey as the hero He was a war hero that didn t have just a minor injury, but had significant injury and the scenes about the war in Spain were interesting and seemed realistic.Great romance
I don t know what it is, but this one is not nearly as good as the other Metzger novels I ve read There wasn t as much humor and I didn t particularly like or connect to the characters.
I was in the mood for a trad romance, and this fit the bill It was cute enough, but didn t really stand out.
As delightful on the 20th read as in the first U think this story and these characters are my favorite of all Barbara Metzger s books.
Delightful Every time I read this, I find it fun than the last time It is fun to watch the H and h get in and out of scrapes I read this about once a year just for fun.
