Inspiring read!

I loved the uniqueness of the story. Bree is the perfect herione to enchant the reader. She isn't the run of the mill Ton character but completely loveable. Her hero has no idea how quickly she will work his way into his heart but once she does, he will stop at nothing to wed her. But, the fact that he may still be married to a wife he hasn't heard from for years throws obstacles in his way. The missing spouse hasn't drawn money from the bank account for long enough for him to ass

What a great book! Exactly the type of story I like--an unconventional heroine and a nice guy hero who is utterly masculine. These characters do exist and I want more of them.

If you look closely at the cover, the hero is wearing an earring in his earlobe. The cover is incorrect. The stud he wears is not in his earlobe. Read the book for a good laugh when you find the stud's location. Talk about totally unexpected and a great deal of fun.

What a good read.

Bree Mallory is between two worlds. On her mother's side are well placed relations and her step-brother, James, is well into the ton. As for Bree and her brother Piers, they are in trade. Their mother remarried for love after the death of James's father. Now that James is getting married, they must be seen more socially and be accepted for his sake.

The Earl of Penrith, Max Dysart, has allowed his cousin to get into a race with his carriage and horses. Suddenly a stagecoach is in

Louise Allen's books are often set during the Regency time period but they tend to offer something a little different from the norm - in this case, a heroine whose background walks an uneasy line between aristocracy and Trade.

Bree Mallory's half-brother is a viscount, but her mother's second marriage was a love match, and she married a tradesman. As a result, Bree's brother has inherited a half-interest in a stagecoach company which Bree helps to operate. This hasn't been too much of a problem u

No esperaba mucho de este libro y me ha encantado.
Es una novela rosa, concentrada casi exclusivamente en la relación de Max y Bree, aún así en ningún momento la lectura se vuelve pesada o sosa y eso se debe a la peculiar protagonista, Bree. Que decir de ella, me ha encantado es decidida, sabe que es lo que quiere y lucha por ello, es divertida, sensata, toma decisiones lógicas, es sincera, es fuerte y definitivamente no es una damisela en apuros.
Es una novela sencilla, ligera, fresca, con perso

Bree and Max are wonderful characters and the plot, their romance and the people that help and hinder it are so well written. I really enjoyed seeing them fall in love. Bree's business is so unusual and interesting. I adored how she tried to be dutiful and proper yet was also so much the hoyden. A fun read.

Louise Allen does it again. A highly enjoyable story of a woman wanting to continue to contribute to the family coaching business, but being restrained by social convention as she is pulled more and more into the ton and away from her life in trade.

another one that i think i have read before... hmmmm. well it was a very nice read anyway so i guess i can forgive myself.
only 282 pages in this edition.
reminds me of a Heyer Regency only with explicit sex.
Rolig och lättsam. Skön avkoppling utan krav.
