"An Honorable Gentleman" by Regina Scott is a book that is a sequel to "The Irresistible Earl" but is a stand alone book. This book the first time around when I read it, was read before "The Irresistible Earl" and, honestly my first introduction to regency era books. I wasn't lost the first time around, and I didn't realize that this was the continuation of Trevor's story until I read the note from the author at the end of the book. After reading this story a second time, I enjoyed it a great de ...more
(3 1/2 stars.) An Honorable Gentleman was a sweet and quick regency mystery from one of my favorite authors. It didn't quite grip me as Regina's others have, but it had a heartwarming-small-town (or village, in this case) feel to it, and endearing characters. A nice & easy "weekend read", and I enjoyed it's unique simplicity.

*Update to 4 stars 1/24/15* I think I would have enjoyed this novel all the more if I had read The Irresistible Earl beforehand, as that is where you first meet Trevor,
I liked this book much more than the Irresistible Earl. It contains a mystery, that though I figured out really quickly, had me interested to see how the characters would figure it out. The characters are more appealing than Chase and Mercedee too. Sir Trevor has a slightly roguish air about him that I find attractive. He's not overbearing like his friend though he is rather cynical at first. Gwen is an appealing heroine because she's strong and intelligent. She's also very very good and incred ...more
We'll call this one research. Christian historical fiction romance with a touch of mystery. As far as genres go, that's a lot in one book. It's interesting to me that there was probably a good deal of Christian/Biblical teaching that people would have had back then that we lack today. When the hero has verses popping into his head, even though we're told his mother read him the scandal sheets, not the Bible, for bedtime stories, it strains belief. And yet folks back then probably knew a lot more ...more
When the owner of ramshackle Blackcliff Hall arrives, the locals have high hopes that Sir Trevor Fitzwilliam will set things to rights.

The decaying estate is just another reminder to Trevor of his noble father's rejection. Abandoning it for London could restore his cheer…but how can he

Lovely read

The story had a great deal of mystery to match the budding romance. A great who done it tale. If I could have asked for more it would have been a deeper peek into the couple's future, an epilogue of sorts. But all in all a great read.
Gwen is an insufferable busybody who's interference with all things around her knows no bounds. The author tried to place this predilection for meddling as kindness. It never came across that way. Then there is the lack of connection between the two main characters. Sure, they smile at one another and talk- or rather one talks most about practically forcing the man to stay where he feels trapped- and occasionally and quite suddenly the temperature of the room varies. Apparently, they are suppose ...more
At 30, Sir Trevor Fitzwilliam is the new owner of Blackcliff Hall. He is surprised to see the property, which was bought for him, will bring in no income quickly. Miss Gwen Allbridge is determined to have him stay there since the residents are in financial need.

There is some mysterious happenings in the Hall, which I wasn't expecting. I would have liked a little more interaction with the hero and heroine. I did enjoy how Gwen prays to God to see her through some difficult situations and Trevor w
Rather unimpressed by this one, really wanted to like it but the storyline was a little slow...

Agree with Jeanne "as far as genres go, there's a lot in one book". I wouldn't want to turn anyone off this book, it wasn't terrible, just a little muddled trying to pack everything in. Also, I think our heroine was given a lot more(modern?) leeway than she might have historically had with the master of the house. I gave it 3 stars because it was interesting enough to finish and I would give this author another chance.
Great book. A mixture of romance and mystery at Blackcliff Hall in Cumberland England. Things are not what they seem. Can Trevor and Gwen figure out the mysteries and find a way to stay together?

I liked Trevor in The Irresistible Earl, I look forward to reading his story.
Christine Johnson
Very enjoyable read! Ms. Scott captured my interest from the opening page with her dashing hero and sprinkling of suspense mixed with delightful humor.
Clean - no erotic sex. Interesting with a plot that was new but a tad too much religion for me.
Great read, Regina Scott is fast becoming a favorite author of mine. :)
Charming and wonderful characters, plot!
Also I loved the suspense and mystery!
You get mystery,a red-headed heroine and a cute story. Good read.

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn't actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first nove ...more
