The first few chapters are carried over from the previous book. I wasn't sure whether this was a new book or one I had read before. When the story finally gets going, Lady Constantina Roworth is being badgered by her mother to go to London for the Season and find a suitable husband. Connie knows she can never ever marry for a childhood accident has left her scarred. She would much rather stay and care for the wounded Captain Frank Ingrham. He's an amusing companion and she enjoys badgering him t ...more
Captain Ingram's Inheritance follows on from the two previous stories in this trilogy, Miss Jacobson's Journey and Lord Roworth's Reward. They are Regency romances in the traditional vein, but a bit more tongue in cheek than someone like Georgette Heyer. The best comparison would probably be with some of the Regency stories written by MC Beaton - if you like them, you'll love these.

English readers may know Carola Dunn from her Daisy Dalrymple books, but she is originally English and has written
I didn't realise that this was the last of a trilogy. It made no difference whatsoever to my enjoyment of it, Dunn's a good storyteller and all the information I needed was there, so that it didn't occur to me that I should have known anything more about the characters.

When Felix Roworth comes home from the wars, he has made his fortune and suddenly, his two sisters who have been rusticating genteelly, have the promise of seasons and husband-hunting. Unfortunately, the elder, Constantia, doesn'

The final part of this enchanting trilogy and my favourite out of the bunch. The story starts towards the end of the previous book, retelling the events through the eyes of the brother and sister of that novel's hero and heroine. Frank Ingram has survived the war on the continent and is recuperating back in England, but believes that the scars on his chest will scare away any bride who has been able to look beyond his lack of connections and fortune. Then the family lawyer who has pursued him an ...more

Review - I wish more had been made of the scars of Constantia and Frank, and I wish that the story had continued a little further after the end. Aside from those little things the novel was excellent, the best of the series. I loved Constantia and even after three books I still love Felix, and in particular his relationship with Fanny Ingram.

Captain Frank Ingram is recovering at the home of Lord Roworth, (some of this overlaps with the end of Lord Roworth's Reward but not a lot).
Frank finds that he and hi sister are the heirs to a fortune and 2 estates. Deciding to visit them Constantia and Victoria accompany, Frank Roworth and Fanny to their inheritance.
Connie and Frank were starting to fall in love at the end of the last book, this carries it on and involves a money grubbing Duke, a week Marquis various aunts and horrible relation

I have enjoyed all of Carola Dunn’s regency books I have read so far. They are a nice, quick, easy read and they have a Jane Austen feel to them. Each book is different enough from the others to feel fresh and her enjoyable writing style is consistent.

Always entertaining, but the characters' behaviour is even more unbelievable than usual.

Brilliant! the characters are great form Roworth's sister to the captain; they are vividly described, full of humour. I couldn't put it down! A real page-turner!
