I really liked this book. It took me a while to finish it but this had nothing to do with the book itself, it was due to lack of time to read.
After reading lots of paranormal/vampires in a row I really needed a good regency and I got that with this one.
It was original and unique.

The characters were well-developed and accessible .

A most entertaining Regency romance, complete with a missing brother, spies, a trip to dangerous France, footpads, thugs, dandies, and, of course, the feisty heroine about to marry for duty and position to a dreadful "gentlemen", and the rake hero so scarred by his father's foolish behavior that he's vowed never to marry!

When Dashing Met Danger by Shana Galen is a wonderful historical romantic adventure with characters that you can't help liking. Lot's of action, quick paced adventure and witty dialogue. I was laughing out loud while reading some of the situations the heroine Lucia and the hero Alex found themselves in. When Dashing Met Danger has spies, betrayals, burning passions and a cast of memorable secondary characters. Great read.

Holy wow! Shana Galen does it again! This one has one of the best endings ever!
As long as it was, I still wanted more. More tension between the hero & heroine, more empathy in the hero. Lucia seemed a bit immature but I liked her. I loved the story.

If you're looking for a main character that has you ramming the back of your head again the wall throughout the book, look no further!
Jennifer Rummel
This reminds me of Julia Quinn's Minx - great banter, a little danger, and of course romance!
Suzie Quint
A sweet little romance that kept me involved from beginning to end.
both main characters were annoying ~_~.
