A.M Westerling's "The Countess' Lucky Charm" is a keeper. Combine "Pygmalian" (with a happily-ever-ending), throw in a smidgeon of "Oliver Twist," add a healthy dose of love and passion, a trek through the Canadian wilderness and a host of finely drawn secondary characters, and you'll find a terrific read. Westerling paints a picture of Regency Era English values and its cruel hypocrisy to dramatize the chasm separating Simone, a charming East End pickpocket, and Temple, the younger son of a pee ...more

It's a good read and a very engaging story, the author has a sense of style same with Johanna Lindsay one of my favorite author in historical romance. I'm looking forward for more of the author's books.

A Regency which travels all over the world, from the East End of London, where the hero accidentally finds a pretty, grubby pickpocket hiding in his trunk, to New Caledonia (Pacific Canada) and then back to the high life in London. I thought this novel was polished, always entertaining, and a far step beyond the usual Jane-Austin-Lite Regency fare. The dialogue was crackling, and the hero and heroine were well-matched, believable characters from their particular time and place. There were perhap ...more

5***** that was quite an adventure. I loved it. There were times I wanted to smack the hero. Very self centred he only seemed to see things from how they affected him. Lots of lessons for him to learn. The heroine has so much courage but no self esteem. The journey goes from London to Canada and back a lovely book.

The beginning was slow, but it was a cute little story. I grew quite attached to the characters.

Could have done without the epilogue (sometimes it's better to let me dream up my own continuation of a happy ending), but it was reasonable.

Quite a pleasant regency romance. I never find ones where the noble marries a guttersnipe from the east end to be that believable, but a good tale nonetheless. I did like the ending and the epilogue.
It was ok, nothing especially original. Some inconsistencies that were pretty obvious, even to me.

"From vikings to viscounts, join the adventure, live the romance."

Living by the motto "You don't know unless you try", A.M.Westerling started writing historical romance because she couldn't find the kinds of fun stories she enjoyed. After all, she thought, who doesn’t enjoy a tasty helping of dashing heroes and spunky heroines, seasoned with a liberal sprinkle of passion and adventure?
