Good heavens-I've gotten myself into a scrape! Mere weeks ago, I was simply Jenny Penny, a lady's maid, a lord's illegitimate daughter, and a lover of fine frocks. But my credit at the shops of Bath has been cut off, and I am forced to sell my homemade facial cream at night, without my employers' knowledge. Who knew it would become the sensation of the ton?

This was a silly, poorly-written book. The main character was vain and shallow, and never redeemed herself. In fact, none of the characters developed or evolved in the book, and all of them bugged me as much in the end as in the beginning.

I was disappointed with the book. After reading the synopsis on the back I was expecting this book to be so captivating and intriguing but it was very lacking. Agreeing with what I read in other reviews, Jenny was VERY shallow and self-centered. It was all about her and how good she looked in whatever outfit or accessory she was wearing. It aggrivated me to no end and I got sick of reading about it/her. It very much took away from the book. Lord Argyll on the other hand, I very much enjoyed. I l...more

Ironic, really. I had bought this book several, several years ago and attempted to read the novel. This is ironic because then, like now, I never did finish the novel. In fact, I didn't like it for the same reasons I do not like it now.

One, I found the heroine Jenny to be annoying and shallow. I found the hero to be completely void of any relate-ability. Were it not for my irritation with the characters, mainly the heroine, I would be of the opinion this book had a very potent...more

The first Regency era romance I ever read and I loved it! I picked it up from a bookstore shelf and then bought it because I was fascinated by the story premise and book jacket summary. Though I had never read a Regency historical, I decided to try the book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and have bought another of Caskie's books since.
The writing in this book is somewhat awkward. Makes me think that this is one of the author's first. I have read some of her newer stuff and it is much better.
I give this three stars because of Jenny. She is a fascinating character. Definitely not your typical Regency trashy romance novel heroine.
cute story- a bit different then the average historical romance.
Engaging quick read. Not bad for a romance novel.
