CELIA'S GRAND PASSION
I've put Kerstan on my WL after reading Lord Dragoner's Wife, that was a MOC story between a titled gentleman and a cit's daughter and I greatly enjoyed it. Celia's Grand Passion is completely different but it was also a nice story.


It starts in a surprising way with a lady of the ton hiding in a closet to spy on the gentleman of her dreams. Naturally she couldn't be an ordinary lady and Celia does have a strange story behind that we get to know as the action progresses. The

Lady Celia Greer, recently widowed is determined to cut a dash in London for the first time in her life.

Lord Kendal's first meeting with Celia is awkward and embarrassing and she asks him to forget it ever happened. He believes that will be an easy task, however, forgetting Celia is not easy.

Two books in one...reads like one. Celia's Grand Passion is James Valliant, the Earl of Kendal and Lucy in Disguise is the woman his brother, Christopher "Kit", loves. These are the first books I have read by Lynn Kerstan. I like her writing style and her stories. I liked the James/Celia story more than the Lucy/Kit story. The former was more realist; the latter was an adventure/fantasy tale. There is something to be said for both. The only thing that always stands out in Period novels is when a ...more

Celia's Grand Passion - 4 stars - nice angsty "traditional Regency". Lucy in Disguise - 3 stars - cute story but it didn't engage me somehow.

2 out of 3 books I've read so far of Lynn Kerstan's are 4-star keepers - will be keeping an eye out for her books in the UBS in future - I don't think any of hers are still in print.
