Very good book. When Ashe returns home after his father's death he is dismayed to find out that to have control of the estate, he must marry Genevra. He doesn't want to marry, but he will do so to save his home. He and Neva are immediately attracted to each other but there are things keeping them apart. There is also the mystery of why the estate's funds disappeared so rapidly, and who is behind the problems. I really liked both Ashe and Neva. Ashe had stayed away from the estate and his father...more

Oh, you’re going to love Ashton Bedevere. Estranged from his father for years, a rake of the first water during that time, a man who knows how to seduce and pleasure a woman, returns home when he learns of his father’s death, realizing he wasted too much time in making things right between himself and his father. On top of that, his older brother, the rightful earl, has had a break with reality and cannot take over. Then what Ashe learns once he arrives at Bedevere Hall only fuels his ire and hi...more

It's been on my shelf for a year, out of nowhere I just felt like reading it and I loved it!
I didn't realized it's a second book of the trilogy. Why, I bought it merely because I liked the title and the cover. Hah!
Ashe's brother, Alex, reminded me of Ian Mackenzie (the asylum thing, not the character. Both Alex and Ian were totally opposite). I was kinda hope there'd be a story about Alex, but in the end, it vanished. Why? Why?
Anyway, I loved both Ashe and Genevra and their characters. Their re...more
Pretty good short read

This was pretty good, but I must warn that the cousin is perhaps one of the most irritating characters ever written.
There isn't much to say about this novel, good characters, good plot, good standard regency romance.

Good. As I may have mentioned. Just good.
Ashe and Genevra (American)

3.5 out of 5 rounded UP to 4.

I was thoroughly enjoying this up until the end. When the book focused on Ashe and Genevra, it moved at a brisk pace. The chemistry sizzled, and I loved Genevra did not bother to fight the attraction. Ashe was a wicked rake carrying his own pain. I found the ending rushed, and the subplot fell a little flat, but that's me. Love the cover (I gushed about it on FB) and I do recommend~the H/H make this a very good read, too bad the bit at the end deflated me a little~
I absolutely enjoyed this book! I loved the hero and heroine, and I must say its nice to see an American character in a regency that isn't the butt of jokes. Neva was everything a lady should be and brought some of America's best ideals back to England with her, making her a very interesting match for the scapegrrace Ashe. Ashe was also a wonderful hero, secretly sensitive in a way that made me adore him. Highly recommended!

I really liked Ashe Bedevere. He's got a few different sides to his personality which come together to create a very interesting person. The romance between himself and Genevra felt realistic and I liked the relationship with his lovely brother Alex. (That ending, why?)
In all, a solid, entertaining read.
