I read this a few weeks ago and thought that I had already written a review, but I see that I was wrong.
I loved Catalina and Iverson. I am a romance lover, especially historical romance. It is something about that times that draws me, even though I wouldn't trade the freedom that we women have today for nothing in the world. I would like to think that if I were living in that time Catalina is the woman I would like to emulate. She was intelligent, beautiful, and considering the time she lived

A Gentleman Says "I Do" is a magnificent book that showcases a true love that can overcome anything. This sweet romance will enchant.

The story is fairly straightforward. Catalina is a young woman whose author father is prone to taking off at a moment's notice, leaving her to finish his works so that they can get the necessary money. When she finishes a story about two scandal-prone twin brothers, one of the real life brothers comes to confront her father about the story. When she and Iverson beg

You guys know that historical romance is one of my many guilty pleasures right? Because they are. I love the romance and the drama and the dresses and the men being manly and ALL THE EMOTIONS. And it always makes me a little sad when I don't feel much of anything while reading them, and that's exactly what happened with this one.

First off, the summary is misleading. Iverson isn't out to destroy Catalina's father, he just wants to threathen him a bit to make him stop writing things about his fam

A sparkling love story from the core out, A Gentleman Says "I Do" has a hero and heroine who grab one’s heart and take it on a magical journey from antipathy to ecstatic love.

Threatening a young lady’s father with bodily harm does not engender trust—a truth Iverson Brentwood has to work around as he and the enchanting Catalina Crisp engage in a stimulating, on-going verbal scrimmage that verges on all-out warfare. Neither seems to gai

Catalina Crisp is the daughter of a poet and has found herself put in the position of needing to help finish some of her father’s work in order to get the money they need to pay for the house, staff, etc,. Her father is flighty, with his head in the clouds and tends to take off in a moment’s notice and therefore Catalina has had to become the practical one in the family and had to take over the books at the age of 16. One of the stories she had to finish happens to be a parody based on the Brent ...more

This book was cute. It took me a bit to get into it, just because I wasn't in the right frame of mind to be reading romantic fiction but once I cleared my head and started reading, I couldn't stop. I had a thing for Catalina and Iverson right from the very beginning of the book, right from the moment he barged into her house unannounced, livid and absolutely determined to see her father about the parody he wrote about about Iverson and his twin brother.

I could not seem to get into this book. No matter how hard I tried. It took me three pickups to actually finish this book. I bought this book November 13th 2015 and didn't get to it till now. Trust me I had plenty of time when my tbr shelf was low or none and I just looked at this book and decided not to. After buying it for some reason even the storyline held no interest for me.


So when I finally got into let me tell you... It took me over 3 weeks to finish this one book. It caused me to go into

You can read other reviews to see what the storyline is. I will tell you that I like the book. It was an easy read and a fast read. I finished it between many other tasks in a couple of days. I enjoyed my time reading it.

I was gifted the book by the author many months ago and I am sorry I did not read and review it until now. Because if you are in the mood for a good old fashioned romance, this is a story you will enjoy.

I had a problem with one aspect of the story, but considering the age of the

Iverson's story and the fifth book in the series is best story of the five...far and above the other four books. The characters are believable and likable. The story is full of activity to keep the reader engaged. The H/H didn't spend the entire book loving, but not loving; wondering and not wondering whether the other one loved the other one. There was some of that, but it was not the focus of the story. There were a few of those annoying interjections of lustful thoughts by the H/H just so the ...more

Amelia Grey really won me over as a long time reader with A Gentleman Says “I Do”. This was my first book to read by her and I was just riveted. The characters she created were each so three dimensional I want to have novels for all of them! From the flighty father, to the tipsy aunt, to the front door maid who used to work in a brothel this household is very dynamic and slightly scandalous for Regency England. No

This is the first Amelia Grey book I've read and will definitely not be the last. I found it to be a charming, entertaining read with the hero and heroine trading witty dialogue. Unlike some romance novels, it featured a very strong and confident heroine who was intelligent and proactive. It was a quick read with just the right amount of description, not overly laden with historical details, and tastefully written sex scenes.

loved the story set in an era of such proper etiquette that people feared what others were thinking instead of living their life.

I liked that the female (Catalina) was such a strong character standing up for her loved ones as well as herself, in a time that women were afraid to. that proved to make the story funny also.

enjoyed the story very much.

Deliciously charming and thoroughly unique, Amelia Grey's latest novel in the Rouge's Dynasty series is a hit! A GENTLEMAN SAYS ‘I DO' is a breath of fresh air and simply delightful.

Miss Catalina Crisp never expected to find a dashing young man on her doorstep furious with rage and demanding to see her father, Sir Philip, the famous and talented writer. Iverson Brentwood's recent discovery of Sir Philips' poetic parodies is certainly nothing to laugh about...well, at least for him. Brentwood kno

A Gentleman Says "I Do" is a charming romance read about a stubborn, protective rake who meets his match in a determined, capable woman.

I enjoyed this story, Iverson is overall a hot-headed person. He gets upset, and he acts, thinking about consequences later. When an article appears highlighting his family in a less-than-flattering manner, he is very upset and determined to make the author see the error of his ways. The aut

When I first saw this on NetGalley I immediately added it to my queue. I've had other books from this author on my TBR pile for quite sometime and I found myself very excited to pick this one up. I shouldn't have gotten myself so worked up because this book left a lot to be desired. Don't get me wrong, it wasn't really bad it was just okay. There wasn't anything that really stuck out for me with this book. It's just a book that has been done b

Iverson is gunning for the man who wrote an embarrassing parody about his family. He hopes to confront Sir Phillip and to extract a promise that such a story will never be published again. When Iverson knocks on the door, it's not Sir Phillip he finds, but the man's spirited daughter, Catalina, instead.

Despite his bluster, Catalina isn't intimidated by Iverson. In fact, she matches his fire and wit in a way no woman ever has. He makes his case to her in her father's absence. He will not tolerate

What he's returned to is being fodder for the gossip mill because of his similar appearance to a certain member of society who is not his father. Hope of the gossip ceases ends when a poet by the name of Sir Phillip Crisp writes a parody of the Brentwood Twins return.

Catalina Crisp's father is a well-known poet whose business and parenting skills leave much to be desired. In fact, his complete incompetence (or perhaps indifference) mean that Catalina has to run her household's finances and even complete his poetry for him in order to make money.

But when Iverson Brentwood shows up at her door threatening to break her father's hand if he publishes any more poetry mocking Iverson's mother's infidelity, Catalina knows she's up a shit creek without a paddle. Beca

I tend to read romance novels, especially when I am sick. I do not know if it is to comfort me, take my mind of my pain or simply because happy ending story are generally easy to read but I tend to over look them up in those moments when I want some lightness.

This is exactly the impression I got from reading "A Gentleman says" I do ". Easy to enjoy, with a slight plausible plot and characters with short temper and sharp tongue.

A GENTLEMAN SAYS "I DO" by Amelia Grey is a wonderful Regency historical romance, It is book #5 of the "Rogues’ Dynasty" series,but can be read as a stand alone.

This is a regency romance (I think that's the term for Victorian era bodice ripper), and apparently somewhere in the middle of a series.

I didn't notice, or it didn't occur to me that this wasn't a standalone book. I guess towards the end, I felt like Grey was paving the way for a sequel, but it worked just fine on it's own.

This is the story of Catalina Crisp, daughter of Sir Phillip Crisp, a poet and writer. The trouble starts because Sir Crisp darts from one project to another, leaving Catalin
A Gentleman Says "I Do" was okay. I don't feel very strongly about it either way, it didn't make me gripe that I hated it or get excited to get other books from the author, it was pleasant. I wanted to love this, because I honestly cared about the characters in the book - but I didn't. Both Catalina & Iverson's were sympathetic characters, and I liked that we got to see their motivations. I could understand where they were coming from, though I didn't always agree with what they did. I thin ...more

A sweet romance, a fairly believable plot, a heroine who spends her time taking care of others while neglecting herself, interesting quotes that open each chapter—all these elements make this book good, but not great. Even though there is nothing that detracts from the book specifically, somehow it is lackluster, just sort of mediocre. Perhaps the fault is in the development of the characters who seem formulaic in some ways. The themes are there—the irresponsible artistic father who neglects his ...more

This was a cute story of what can happen when someone gets a little too close to home with a tale written for the gossip rags. Though a bit slow in some spots it does hold it's own and is an enjoyable read none the less.

Catalina Crisp is the daughter of a famous poet and has need to finish her father's works more and more often now because her father just up and takes a walk that can last for days on end if not weeks. Catalina needs to pay the household bills and half a piece of a tale isn't goi
I always like finding a romance book where the Hero and the heroine don’t play stupid games with each other’s affections. Bonus points when they don’t lie to themselves about their feelings. Catalina and Iverson share a mutual attraction right off the bat, and as they spend more time together they each realize that it’s maturing into love. These are both intelligent characters that are able to work through the conflicts and small deceits keeping them apart. Iverson is a protective man, and seein ...more
The plot of this book is mildly interesting. Our heroine, Catalina, is holding together her household instead of focusing on finding a husband. Her dad’s a moderately successful poet, but completely irresponsible and with a bad habit of hiring help that no one else will take on. Her Aunt’s a drunk.

Our hero, Mr. Brentwood, recently returned from a stint creating a business in the United States to discover that the father who raised him may not be his biological father. His shock is compounded by

I was disappointed in this book. Grey sets up two very strong and likable characters. Each are very strong leaders and have overcome much in their lives. However, the first plot point (and this comes from the cover) of the heroine writing something under her father's name that is published, that the hero doesn't like is set up strong, but ends weak. There is no resolution, or hint of resolution later in the series of books, that was satisfactory to me. Also, the resolution of the main plot point ...more

A moderately good regency romance, the author did a nice job telling the story of a young woman who is caught up in taking care of her father, her widowed aunt and the rest of the household, so much that she has abandoned her own life and concerns.

Because they are short on funds, when her father wanders off without finishing a serial piece, she finishes it and submits it to get money to pay the bills. Much to her dismay, one of the thinly veiled subjects of the story comes knocking on her door,
