From pompous to vain, the most unsuitable suitors courted Anne Fairchild. Tolerant of all foibles, unschooled in flirtation, Anne was the despair of her family. Worst of all, only Chas Prestwick, the outrageous younger brother of an earl, could bring a blush to her cheek. He made Anne long to trade in a life of propriety -- for one that promised a love filled with ...more

Love a good regency!

"Sigh" I love a good regency and this was just that. It pulled me in and I found myself completely lost in Chas and Anne's story even if they both infuriated me at times. Fun, clean romance with a few twists I didn't see coming. I loved it! Adorable ending!

I really liked this one. I liked our protagonists instantly and was totally rooting for them to end up together right from the start. Anne was a likable lead. As the title implies, she is unflappable and great under stressful situations. I think what I liked most about her though was her positive outlook on life and able to see the good in everyone. She treats everyone with respect and just seems like the type of person that you would want to be friends with. She captivates our hardened “rake

Oh I adored this book! I can not express enough how much I love a sweet, fun, witty story like this. I also love it when an author wants me to believe in a relationship and actually gives me interactions between the characters through out the whole book. I loved Anne. She was a character you really feel like you can be friends with. She was strong and yet not prideful. I adored Chas from the beginning. I loved Chas' best friend and thought he added something extra fun. I also loved every ...more
So fun:] I really enjoyed this book. I wasn't sure because it is a reformed rake story but you couldn't help like this rake, but it was the heroine I liked the most. This only took me a couple hours and I just loved the ending and wanted a little more. This was a clean regency with no religion and a couple great kisses:}

Anne Fairchild first meets Chas Prestwick when she accidentally opens the library door (thinking it is the card room) and discovers Liza Scanton trying to ruin what is left of Chas Prestwick's reputation! Her discovery of Liza and Chas effectively ruins Liza's chances of carrying out her scheme. When Liza tries to make Anne part of her scheme, Anne handles both Liza and Chas with amazing ease. Chas doesn't learn her name (when he asks for an introduction she says, "That would not be proper, sir. ...more

This book was quite cute. I really like a sweet clean regency romance. The main characters were charming and interesting. I liked how the conflict played out and was resolved. The relationship was very convincingly written. One big complaint is the ending. It seems way to sudden. I wonder if there was a certain page limit given by the publishers that prevented the author from giving a little more closure. I found this for $.99 on Amazon for Kindle. It is totally worth the price.

I absolutely LOVED this book. It's clean, yet undeniably romantic. And, best of all, it had me laughing out loud over and over. It has a great set of characters, and enough going in in the plot that it didn't feel flatly one-dimensional. Yes, the it's dramatic, and might seem a little impossible . . . but it you're going to suspend disbelief to read a book, why not thoroughly enjoy it? ;-)

Regina Scott is a new favorite author of mine--right up there with Julianne Donaldson.

This is a cute romance. It's a real quick read, and it's clean. A lady in the upperclass whose family is just about to go broke gets involved with a very wealthy questionable man. I can't say more, but if you just need a quick romance read, this would be cute.

A super cute regency read with a great hero & heroine, a good plot & storyline with a surprise twist at the end. Well written, but with minor editing errors. A delightful diversion!

4.5. This was a such a fun, cute, clean read. I loved our hero and heroine! It would make a really cute movie. ;)
Unlike the author's more recent books, this book is neither Christian nor inspirational, and it contains a few mild profanities.

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn't actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first ...more
