I enjoyed this one, although it reminded me a lot of Lord Perfect by Loretta Chase, only this time the adventuresome couple are adults and the protagonists of the story. I liked Maxie and Robin together - although I think it would have been better had "Maxie" not sounded so closely like "Maggie", since part of the story is Robin's getting over Maggie/Margot (Petals in the Storm. And that part of the book I could have done without. It kind of bothers me that Robin still had such intense feelings ...more

Loved this one! Terrific road story of the hero and heroine wending their way down to London from Yorkshire, trying to evade some apparent villains who want to return the heroine to her uncle dead or alive, and also being chased, unbeknownst to them, by the hero's brother and the heroine's aunt (who have a delightful secondary romance during the course of the story). The heroine wants to find out why her father died in London, and the hero, whom she stumbles across on a path in some woods, decid ...more

A spy introduced in the second book of the series, Petals in the Storm Lord Robert Andreville earns his own novel as a retired spy bored with life until he meets the unique American-Indian on her way to London to investigate the death of her father. Along the way they run into highwaymen, avoid the relatives searching for them, fight tooth and nail to escape the tough customers determined to keep them out of London, and manage to fall in love and solve the mystery. The adventure is good, the rom ...more

I guess the main problem I have with this book is that I absolutely hate when one of the main characters is still brooding over his ex-lover or something like that. The beginning of the book is amazing. A master spy Robert Andreville and a half Mohawk Maxima Collins meet in the woods and like each other at first sight. He is simply bored and sick of his past (and kinda heart-broken) and she wants to find the truth about her father who died in suspicious circumstances. Everything was fine until ( ...more

Review of Kindle Edition of classic Regency historical romance

Lord Robert Andreville (Robin) is in his early 30s and has become extremely burned out and depressed from two causes: The woman he wanted to marry, a fellow spy who for many years worked with him for the British government against Napoleon, has married another man, and after over 12 years of spy work, now that the Napoleonic wars are over, he doesn't know what to do with his life as the younger son of a noble family.

He is staying with

Olvasgattam itten az értékeléseket(moly). Meggyőződésem, hogy nem ugyanarról a könyvről beszélünk. :)))
Kevés ez az öt csillag, hogy elmondjam, mennyire tetszik. Nem titok, mindenik MJP könyvet szeretem, de ez magasan viszi a pálmát, legfeljebb a sorozat hetedik kötete veszi fel vele a versenyt.
Maxima személye nem zavart, nem is izgatott különösebben. A történet kelléke, érdekes színfolt, félvér. A problémát, amiért Londonba ment enyhén szólva is mondvacsináltnak érzem, de tény, hogy nekem nem h

I gave this book 5 stars because of how right Robin and Maxie were for each other. Their imperfections and flaws fit together like a puzzle, and they were better together than apart.
The spy-ish background in this story was more satisfying to me versus a few other titles in the Fallen Angels series (which I still loved, though); Robin's background made him interesting and human. Maxie's history of being from two cultures and the wisdom it produced was beautiful-I am a sucker for intelligent heroi

I love Mary Jo Putney. One of my favorite authors. However this one did not resonate with me like some of her others. The heroine was delightful, a half Mohawk and half aristocratic English girl who comes to England with her father to meet with her father's brother. he goes to London on business and dies there. She is determined to go there Walking! and find out why. she meets up with a young former spy, Robin and he elects to go with her to protect her. They are being pursued by several people, ...more

The prologue of this book does not do the rest of the book justice. I almost abandoned it after reading the prologue. It just seemed melodramatic, almost cartoonish, and ended with the heroine deciding to mask herself as a boy and walk to London to get to the bottom of her uncle's treachery. I did not want to continue, but I did because I loved Robin in a previous book in this series and wanted to at least see his character enter the story. Robin saw through the boy act immediately so that helpe ...more

Mary Jo Putney is a mixed bag for me, but I love this story. Robin, a charming, well-born, adventurous former spy running from his own demons meets a young woman searching for the answers to her father's mysterious death. Raised in the America by her loving, scholarly wanderer of a father, Maxie is innocent, but has not been sheltered as English damsels are. Though her uncle takes her in after her father's death, she is despised by his spiteful wife and daughters as a half-breed hoyden. Jealous ...more

Heavens above this was a wonderful book. I felt so bad that Robert "Robin" Andreville didn't get Maggie in DANCING ON THE WIND. He so needed someone to love and care for him. I am sure the spying is never easy but in the time period of this book had to be brutal. Robin was a spy for twelve years and the things that he had to do for God and country left him at the breaking point. Ms. Putney does a very good job of showing how bad Robin's emotional state has become. The torture he went through at ...more

Historical English road trip romance with PTSD healing for the hero. The two main characters literally bump (fall) on each other and become traveling partners, then friends and in the end more... There are definitely little traces of this story in the last book, One Perfect Rose by Mary Jo Putney which was also a road-trip to Scotland which is the opposite because Robin and Maxie are traveling to London. I learned a lot of travel for the common person during this time because all to often an aut ...more

The "Fallen Angel" series has a long sequence and Mary Jo Putney comes up with some interesting variations on the usual Regency themes. In this one, we are reintroduced to Robin who was a character in the book chronicling the romance between Rafe and Margot. Robin was also in love with her and when we meet him he's still nursing a broken heart and haunted by his actions as a spy for the English government.

He finds a purpose when he meets up with Maxima, also known as Maxie is an American whose f

This 1990 Signet Regency Romance was lurking in my basement. When I recently stumbled on it during a ruthless book-reduction project, I realized I had never read it. I went through a decade-long love affair with Regency Romances in the 1990s, but their appeal has faded for me. I thought about tossing it in the donate pile, unread, then changed my mind because the premise of the story was outside the usual scope of a Regency. I noticed right away it is longer than other Signet regencies, clocking ...more

The heroine was, at least at a few points during the book, almost too silly to ensure her continued existence. Lord Robert, however, made up for that oh so much. From now on, please imagine that any time I write "Lord Robert" I do so with a big heart drawn around his name. *sigh*

So Maxie Collins travels with her father to England, but he dies in London and she gets stuck with her uncle and (extremely officious) aunt in the north of England. When she overhears a conversation that possibly makes h

Ohhh! what an interesting book! with a Native American lead heroine. This is my first from Mary Jo Putney and I already loved this book. A tortured hero and a "savage" heroine is an interesting mix, not that I'd call Maxie a savage, expect the fat that she has some bloodthirsty instincts of violence. I also love Giles and Desdemona and how they seem to go after Max and Robin. such a feisty couple! 5 stars!
Patricia Kate
This is a road trip romance, which is good in that the h/H spend a lot of time together. But the story sometimes strays too much (for my liking) from the romance to the road trip aspect and the accompanying adventures.

I always like Putney's heroines though, and Maxima is no different. I'd probably give the book 3.5 to 4 stars overall.

El principio era entretenido, sin embargo el final fue totalmente desconcertante y ridículo -.-
En fin no gasté mucho en el libro pero si fue una decepción el desenlace. Incluso la tía de Máxima y el duque o marqués no recuerdo que era xD fueron más entretenidos y tuvieron mejor química.

This was a fun read, I liked that there were multiple stories going one that were woven together very seamlessly and made the story very interesting. Strong female character that is wonderful! Enjoyed how they work together and helped each other to become better. Great read.

Wonderful historical- one of the best I read so far. Robin is my perfect hero- he is more sweet than alpha, although he has his alpha-moments as a fighter. His respect for the heroine runs deep, and I like his unconventioanl ways. Maxie is intelligent, courageous and authentic. Their love story is tender and heart-warming...there's absolutely far more than desire between those two. I liked that there are some conflicts and doubts, but they aren't over the top, and both TALK about the things that ...more

Half-Mohawk Maxima Collins is determined to learn the truth about her father's death. Ex-spy Robert Andreville makes it interesting.

Another excellent historical romance. Our hero is Robin Andreville, a retired spy from the Napoleonic Wars who returns home with his charm intact but his mind in turmoil. On a lark he follows Maxie, a half-Mohawk orphan, on her quest to find the truth about her recently-deceased father. Both main characters are thoroughly delightful, and unconventional for the genre.

"One Perfect Rose" (with a fun Shakespearean flavor) by the same author is also outstanding.
Kim
Love the Hero in this book! I could totally see Brad Pitt playing the heros part. Liked the heroine a lot also, but the hero is just awesome. I even like the secondary romance, which was short. I can honestly say this is the ONLY book that I liked the secondary romance. Great Book!!
Sherri
I loved this story! There was just something intriguing about Robin that kept me fascinated to the end. I think that the dual love story w/ Giles was a sweet complement as well. As I finished the book, all I could do was smile and sigh. (The hubby just rolled his eyes.)
Cary
So I'm guessing that I read this book long before I joined Good Reads. It was too familiar almost all the way through! On the other hand the ending was something I do not remember at all! That being said it was a fun romp with a strong heroine and tortured hero.

Putney does have a way with words. Enjoyable tale of Robin, ex-spy and Maxie, part mohawk part British aristocracy travelling by foot across England. Pleasantly down to earth resolution to the big mystery - I was expecting far more dire deeds, wicked uncles etc.
