    2. his was a wonderfully modern regency that really was a fun read. There were so many colorful characters; Brandy, her sisters Constance and Fiona, Grandma Adella, Ian, Felicity and so many more. Its one of Catherine's first books too, and it really shows you how talented she was from the start.The only gripe I have is that the blurb doesn't quite suit the story. Brandy didn't really try to change her appearance until the very end of the story. Most of the time she kept herself looking dowdy becau [...]

    3. I don't really care for romance novels that double as mysteries (and especially murder mysteries). Either the romance, the mystery, or both always seem to come up short in such combinations. The ending was predictable. In fact, the obvious villain (the Red Herring) was so obvious that it made the reader instantly assume that he was, in fact, not the villain. If you make someone stand out too much, it's virtually guaranteed that they did do it. =/ As for the romance, I was disappointed. It was an [...]

    4. I read this book the first time many years ago. It even has a different cover. But I loved it then and I loved it this time. I thought Ian and Brandy were great characters and even the frosty grumpy grandmother and the strange Uncle. The fiancé was the typical witch. A great read. But I was disappointed in the real villain of the story. Especially how it affected Ian's first wife. But a super love story.

    5. I wasn't sure if I would like this book, but the characters that CC created were all so imaginable that I couldn't put it down. You could really hate the fiancee, and want to strangle Percy and Grandmama. I think maybe Brandy fell in love with the dude a little fast, but at least the book didn't drag. CC threw in a few twists that keep the story interesting. If you like romances you will like this one.

    6. This a Catherine Coulter book, the plot was twisty enough where you were never bored, the dialogue was the best part, the pacing made putting the book down hard, and the characters were all cute as hell.

    7. This is probably my favorite of the CC books. Hands down. I like the characters. I like the plot. The book seems tightly written with fast pacing and witty dialog.

    8. I really like this with all it's intrigue and mystery, I never saw dear cousin Giles as a murderer of the dukes wife and attempted murder of the duke.

    9. For a time back in the 80’s & 90’s, my reading material of choice was frequently bodice rippers, historical fiction, and regency romances with a few contemporary best sellers thrown in for good measure. Most of them were pretty steamy (blush) &/or overly romantic, but I read them during a time in my life when I found myself as a single parent, and these books fit the bill. I found them to be highly entertaining. I recently donated a slew of them, but I wanted to catalog them all the [...]

    10. I rate this book -0 Stars and relegate it to my too awful to Finish shelfThis book is supposed to be based on earlier, shorter Signet Regency Romance "The Generous Earl," and the Gen Earl is Much Better!Initially I was exited about the Duke. I had high hopes because I thought I would be getting more of what I loved in TheGenerous Earl--and I did love that book. I have reread I many, many times over the years. I liked it so much that I tried to find old Signet regencies by this author written bef [...]

    14. sorry to say this, but this is probably one of the weakest stories ever written by ms. coulter. the plot is quite unremarkable (and i really didnt feel much for that thing about them being cousins), and the romance is sadly lacking. i felt too that the secondary characters were given too much roles or dialogues, thereby resulting in a story that is more of a family drama than a romance tale. i feel bad about reading this one coz i was hoping to find a better novel by ms. coulter after reading a [...]

    15. I have to admit that this was not one of my very favorite Catherine Coulter books. Once I got into the plot however I enjoyed it a little more. At first, I really didn't care for Brandy very much. She seemed very young and naïve and not Innoway the readers might find appealing. I think my favorite character was Fiona, sister. He does not appear but when she does it's enjoyable. In conclusion, though this was not one of my favorite books by the author, it was worth the read.

    16. The chapter splits in this book made me keep reading. There were lots of typos and grammatical errors that really made me mad by the end of the book. Not bad for my first romance novel. I tried the genre because romance novels are so popular in the public libraryd that's what I'm gonna do I figured I would familiarize myself. I will be reading more romance novels, just not from this particular author.

    17. I've read a couple of Catherine Coulter's books before and really enjoyed them. I picked this one as part of the March author challenge. It was a pleasant read, but not as enjoyable as Sherbrooke BrideThe Sherbrooke Bride

    18. Beyond old skool what an old-fashioned Regency, with lashings of some really hoary old cliches: she thinks her figure is too full, she's Nurse Jane to the ailing duke and gives him some hands-on cure I read it to the end but it's definitely a share, not a keeper.

    19. Sorry but I hate this book. I just don't know why I hate it. I think maybe because I always fell asleep while reading this book and it feels like it plain torture to finish it. Maybe it was just that I got sick of the old romance novels which keeps within the same plot.

    23. Well it's a light-hearted frivolous bit of nonsense. It's ok for a rainy day or tedious journey despite the irritating attempt at rendering the Scottish dialect!

    24. This is a pretty entertaining book, with an interesting subplot that had me guessing "whodunnit". Not a book for anyone who hates skanky scenes, but it's easy enough to see them coming.

    25. I did like this book, it is a easy read. It takes a number of pages to get in to it, rather boring at the start.

    26. I liked this book, I especially liked Ian. For a duke he was down to earth, willing to learn. The rest of the characters were not outstanding. However the story was enjoyable.

    27. Well, I usually enjoy Catherine Coulter's books but this one fell flat. Probably because the translation is dreadful. It was a great pain to sort through what was going on!

    29. I'm a Coulter fan but I must be honest and say that I found the heroine of this tale a tad bit too unaware of herself as a woman. Other than that it was a good read and another keeper.
