Now for the first time in a single volume: two long unavailable yet beloved romance classics from a New York Times bestselling favorite.

In these two delectable novels, someone craves to be married and loses sight of the joys of true love-until their heart is opened unexpectedly...

Lovers and Ladies
This is actually two separate novels - The Fortune Hunter is the first, and in this case it is not some down at the heel rogue seeking to marry a heiress, but rather the heroine seeking a fortune. She has decided the only way to help her family is to look very high, or perhaps deep, to find someone - no matter the social circle- be it in trade or the aristocracy- wealthy enough to get her family back on their feet and allow her sisters to marry for love.

Two books in one! Such a deal. I liked both of them. They were the end of a series of related books by Ms. Beverley. Not only did we get the stories of these two characters in this set, but we were brought up to date in the stories of the H/H's of the other books.

'The Fortune Hunter' told the story of one poor, but beautiful heroine and her quest to find a rich hero to pull her and her family out of the fire. The hero was handsome, but not particularly rich-the number one priority of the heroin

This is not really a review, just my scattered thoughts on finishing the book.

So, I'm not a huge fan of Jo Beverley's heroines. Almost all of them tend to be very...shrill. They think they know best, which is cool, but they often form their opinions on nothing but misguided spite, malice and stupidity, which makes it hard for me to root for them. So it goes with the heroines of this book, a double book comprised of two of Jo Bev's traditional regency stories, I'm left wondering: why would *anyo
S Jo Beverley mám společné minimálně dvě věci: obě milujeme knížky a především pak Jane Austenovou, jíž autorka touto knihou vzdává hold. Kniha obsahuje dvě novely, kdy se postupně seznamujeme s postavami, které nás provádějí svým osudem - a nebyla by to pocta autorce jedněch z největších romantických příběhů, kdyby nešlo především o lásku.
This was a combined edition of to f the authors previous works. I had a little trouble getting into the first story, and I found that heroine a bit tedious, found myself thinking that the hero might be better off with out her.

I liked the second story better, I really enjoyed the supporting characters as well. Both mothers were delightful. It had a sweet plot.
2 nice stories made better by the connections of people from previous stories making the world seem real and full of people. I appreciated the cleanliness of this book very much.
2 nice "traditional Regency" stories. The way the hero fell in love with the heroine in the second story didn't quite work for me, however - it never seemed believable.
Two books in one. The Fortune Hunter was better than Deidre and Don Juan but they were both pretty clean, historical romance novels.

This is a re-print of two of Jo Beverley's first Regency romances & they're pretty good.
Za první povídku jsou 3 hvězdičky, za tu druhou, která se mi líbila o trošku víc 3,5 :)
Nice pair of stories. I enjoyed reading them.
