No Regrets has the dubious honor of featuring the most annoying heroine I've encountered since Bella Swan. Yay ... Small victories ... This poor book is a cliche-ridden fiesta of magnificent proportions. Everything is thrown into the convoluted plot, including the proverbial kitchen sink. I don't think I liked a single character in this book. If they didn't singularly offend me, then I don't remember them. This is bad. Very bad. And that's sad, because perhaps with a quarter of the plot tumors, ...more

I read this book because it has so few ratings on Goodreads, sort of like a wallflower at a dance. My hope was that it was ignored because it was unseen, but alas! alack!, as the old poem says. The characters are flat, and there are more cliched situations than any one book should hold. Add a heroine who's ridiculously naive and yes, TSTL, and a hero who pretty much lies to everyone, and that's it.

In the opening scene, the Hero makes a bold move. He swoops in and contrives a situation that forces his old friend, Caroline, to agree to marry him- a suit he had pursued for some time.

However from that moment on, there is miscommunications and misunderstandings that, despite the couple's obvious attraction, never gets resolved til the end of the story.

This book had a number things going for it. Fresh characters that we don’t see in your average Regency, sexual spark, kidnapping, intrigue,- but

This book taught me that there is never really any need for consistency when you're writing a novel. The heroine is named Caroline! (or Carolyn! not really sure!) She is smart! (But she makes mothing but stupid choices and cries approximately every other page.) The hero and heroine have been friends forever! (But they have no shared jokes, memories, etc.) He finds her sooooo attractive! (But she is, according to the book, fat and ugly. Gee, authoress, projecting your hopes and dreams onto the pa ...more

"Vomit. Vomit, vomit, vomit. I'm going to have to go and read something else to get the taste of this one out of my mouth. Yuck." I have to steal this from another reviewer because it so true about this book. The premise was good but that's about it. What a waste of time! If you like stupid, boring, virginal heroine with low self-esteem and no confidence what so ever (much less a brain cell) or a stupid, boring, cad of a "hero", or a stupid, boring, one-dimensional villain and you feel like tort ...more

I quite enjoyed this one, although I felt it was lacking something to make it really good.

The hero and heroine are a great pair of characters, who grew up together, and were firm friends. They both have issues with their families.

Having said that, the plot was a bit convoluted at times, and although the heroine's insecurities about her appearance were obviously important to her, it was overplayed, I thought.

Things I liked about this one:

- The hero and heroine are very likeable. They both have th

A fellow Georgette Heyer fan recommended this book and after finishing it I frankly question whether she's actually ever read a Heyer novel. This book doesn't even come close to the glories of a Heyer novel... about the only thing they have in common is that they take place in the Regency era. This is really no more than a romance novel with very little charm or wit.

I'm not as fond of straight romance novels as I used to be (I lived for the next Sidney Sheldon when I was in junior high school a

Tertarik baca buku ini karena heroine-nya ga kya yg biasa.. ndut gitu loh.. ^--^

Heroine-nya Caroline, biasa dipanggil Caro, dideskripsikan sbg cewe bertubuh gede, berkacama mata dan karena kondisinya itu merasa tidak menarik bagi cowo.. dr kecil udah berteman ama si hero, Lucas, yg dideskripsikan spt hero2 biasa, tampan, kaya dan ber-title..

Gw suka awal2 cerita pas Lucas nyari2 Caro buat menawarkan pernikahan ala MOC, wkt itu Caro lg bantuin temennya yg jd pelayan di pesta org kaya, tau ga dlm

Ah, I really liked Caro and Lucas but they frustrated me to no end. I really couldn't understand how their strong childhood friendship didn't transfer into a stronger foundation for their marriage of convenience. However, for as much as they claimed to be honest with each other, they had a hard time communicating their love. Each was afraid; Caro because of her poor self-image and Luke for believing that loving her would mean being under her control. Their constant misunderstandings got old rath ...more

**POSSIBLE SPOILER**Damn this book! It was so full of ridiculous drama! All I could wonder is how Lucas and Caro could claim to be such great friends when clearly they really had no idea about the other! I mean Lucas couldn't tell how Caro really felt about him, Caro couldn't tell that Lucas really thought she was beautiful and desirable. I mean these were two of the ditsiest people possible! Lucas not telling even Caro about his music school was foolish, Caro running off to Paris and always wai ...more

Not a horrible story, but not memorable. The key point that could have elevated it from an ok story to a good one is making it believable that these two characters were actually friends once upon a time. Aside from a couple of little scenes that attempted to establish that the H/h were friends as children, I couldn't believe that these two ever knew/cared for each other at all, and it made investing in their story hard to do, since the premise is that they were good friends is what is supposed t ...more
Paula
I agree with another reviewer in that I feel this book could have been a memorable one. Something is lacking in the fleshing out of characters, and development of the story line. The opening chapter had such promise, but sadly the rest of the novel went steadily downhill. There was an Austenesque feel about it at first, but the author misplaced those qualities somewhere along the way, especially in the graphic love scenes. I am no prude, but there is a lot to be said about subtle romance than po ...more
Celia
I would have given it 4 stars except that a large portion of the character motivations was based on one really important thing that the hero, for absolutely no good reason, never mentions to the heroine. Worst plot motivator ever!
Krissy
Another romance with a slightly curvier heroine. And she wore glasses. But for the life of me I just can't seem to recall much about the book. I guess it wasn't that good after all.
Fay Ann Hollcroft
Very pleasant love story! The one thing I am irked about Regency novels is that most of the time there is only one sensual scene.
PNR
Chubby, insecure heroine and rake hero. Misunderstandings and angst ensue. That's my jam.

This girl biggest fault was being annoying.
