Picked this up between two rings for some comic relief. I continue to enjoy Chase's writing and style. Isabella was a bit confusing - still not sure of all the family ties and obligations. Maybe I was just too distracted to keep the Bertrams, Lathams, Markhams or whoevers straight. Predictable, but nice.
The English Witch took us back to Albania - an unusual setting which Chase has used in some of her other novels. It was interesting how Chase managed to salvage Basil who is the ultimate villain

3.5 stars. Rounded down, because ... well, because it calls to mind the later Captives of the Night, and (to my mind) it feels a bit underbaked as a result of the comparison.

This re-read was courtesy of willaful's suggestion.

Though I didn't see Behold, Here's Poison's Randall in Basil, however, I saw CotN's Ismal. Howsoever much Randall could easily have been cast as a villain (as were the others), I read him as a different type: metrosexual. Basil is written as more virile and charismatic lea

Both of these regency romances have good heroes and heroines. The problem for both books is sagging middles. The stories dragged. The beginnings were enticing, the ends really picked up the pace, but the middles were endless descriptions of nothing that moved the stories forward. Although Chase is a fabulous author these are some of her earlier works (published in the late 80s) and the short format inhibited her from creating the regency worlds she did in some of her later single titles.

These two books are linked, with the suitor who lost the heroine in the first book redeeming himself as the hero of the second. I much preferred Isabella to the second story, largely because I found the hero, Lord Hartleigh, more attractive than the roguish Basil. Still, Chase does a good job of making Basil grow up during his three-year sojourn to India, and I ended up believing that he really could mend his ways and be worthy of the heroine.

So, if you like your Regency heroes to be the sober,
I picked this up at the used book store several weeks ago. I hadn't read it before and was excited to add it to my collection. Chase has been a long time favorite, though not all her stories work for me.

While I enjoyed much about these stories, I did have a hard time getting into them. Something about the writing put me off. I'm not sure if it's the stories themselves, or just the way they were told, but I didn't feel the same connection to the characters I normally do when reading a Chase nove

I truly loved the first book, ISABELLA -- fabulous story. The second book, THE ENGLISH WITCH, took a little to get into. I ended up liking it, but not loving. I do enjoy seeing an author turn a villain into the hero/heroine in a later story and that's what we have here. I just didn't think the story developed into what it might have. Overall, gave the book a B -- B+ for the first one and a C+ for the second.

3 for ISABELLA, 4 for THE ENGLISH WITCH. Fun to read these very early Chase Regencies, and to see how witty and fun chase was, how enjoyable even sans the sex scenes that enliven her later works...
