I didn't care much for this book. The heroine runs away from home, has all her property stolen and winds up living on the streets, dressed like a boy, and stealing for her living. Though she's been raised a lady, she can somehow pick pockets with the best of the urchins. And she picks the wrong pocket, stealing papers from a man working as a government agent. He takes her home and hides her there from the villain she ran from.
I had problems with a lot of this book. The writing seemed to veer fr
Intriguing beginning, with a mysterious ex-military government agent capturing a scruffy thief and then discovering the grimy boy is an elegant young lady fallen on desperate times.

The predictability of the romantic development is offset by a subplot concerning treacherous Bonapartists, but neither the romance nor the action is able to prevent the story slipping into a repetition of stilted dialogues, lifeless descriptions, and two-dimensional characterisations.

The last few chapters are particul

«Ma voi tornerete, Richard. Vi amo tanto che il mio amore vi riporterà da me.»
Mi è piaciuto molto, Georgie è una bella protagonista, impulsiva ma non stupida nonostante la sua giovane età; Richard è stato un soldato ed ora è una spia e l'amore che prova per la fanciulla che ha accolto in casa sua salvandola dalla strada lo mette nella difficile posizione di scegliere tra amore e dovere, infatti non crede di poterle offrire il matrimonio finché la guerra contro Napoleone è in pieno svolgimento ma

I enjoy the light romances set in Regency times. Especially hen the heroine is a minx or willing to stand up for herself. Georgie, here is more a minx getting in trouble & needing rescuing. As usual, the two lovers are at odds, neither wanting to admit their feelings, although his reasons made more sense to me. Still a good escape for an evening.
– The Homeless Heiress was completely totally and utterly…predictable. The back cover blurb is misleading in that the heroine has only been ‘homeless’ for two weeks and through her own inability to take care of herself, got robbed and ended up with no place to go. Sorry but its hard to have much sympathy for her in that situation. The characters are flat and the plot was predictable, The Homeless Heiress is more than out of a home, she’s out of luck too. ~ Cerise,
1,5 stars.
