She even shuns Lord Phillip's attempts to court her. When she's plagued by financial troubles, Lord Phillip may be the only person who can help her, if only she can overcome her pride. It made me feel more than a little uncomfortable as the stories progressed. Jul 08, Kim Power rated it really liked it. A heir to Heyer This set of Regency romances at its best is as good as Heyer. The first and third are a level above the second, where the arrogance of the hero makes any finer feelings somewhat unbelievable.
The writing is competent, the period is well rendered but it is disappointing to find typos in the Kindle edition. The other slight disappointment is that the heroine's are all tiny and referred to as 'chits' all too often. Surely even in the Regency period there were men who did not have to A heir to Heyer This set of Regency romances at its best is as good as Heyer.
Surely even in the Regency period there were men who did not have to be won over from misogyny to propose. Though the hero in the first novel is an exception. Certainly I will look for more by this author. Jul 07, Pontiki rated it really liked it.
Very entertaining read, a bit of folly, some romance, and even drama. Intelligently written, a great series starter. He finds them in his house, hiding from their guardian, an evil man who wants to kill his nephew, the underage earl of Endale, age 9. Leslie, the oldest sister, saves the siblings, but meets her match in Drogo. Excitement, fun, and grudging romance in this tale. I love the aunt, a bluestocking ready for adventure. The Random Gentleman- KU Feb 11, Angela rated it liked it.
Nice storylines I enjoyed the stories. Only the last was not tightly wrapped as the others with a younger friend of the main character having an evil mother, who is really never dealt a conclusion. Overall this was an a just above average read.

Instead, she sounds pretentious. An expanded vocabulary and a sense of contextual appropriateness regarding diction would greatly benefit this author. These novels border on being classified as purple prose.

She also has only one description for every time a character encounters stairs: My ocular muscles are strained from rolling my eyes so often at Chater's contrived language and plots. Oh, and everything is "outside of enough. I guess people are giving this collection high ratings because they don't know any better.
Today's readers seem to lack discernment and taste. Maybe they have never had literary "filet mignon," so "dog food" tastes good to them. I blame our K educational system. We are churning out graduates who can neither understand nor appreciate good literature--or even good chick-lit.! Oct 21, Marlene rated it it was amazing.
