Set in early 19th century Regency England, and harking back in style to the heyday of Georgette Heyer and Barbara Cartland, A Very Merry Chase is a comedy of manners and errors that boasts empire fashions, dashing characters, verbal sparring matches and witty repartee mingled with just a hint of mystery, danger and intrigue.

Actually I wrote this book...35 years ago--during the original heyday of Georgette Heyer and Barbara Cartland--before Regency Romance novels contained sex. So it is indeed a genuine old-fashioned "clean" Regency Romance novel.

I originally attempted to publish it at the time it was originally written, but the editor who so enthusiastically requested to read it, left the publishing house before I could get the final revision completed and get it mailed off to her. It was returned to me with a curs

Last month I won an e-version of A Very Merry Chase, a fun regency romance written by Teresa Thomas Bohannon. I have to admit I admire Ms. Bohannon--in the intro of the book she tells that this was 30+ years in the making. Personally, I am not sure I would ever have that much patience with the process; however, I think the end result was worth the effort because A Very Merry Chase has memorable characters and fast moving plot. I particularly liked Sabrina St. Clair, the lead character in the nov

Recommends it for: historical romance readers
Thanks to the author, I have a personalised copy of this book now. I'm reading it and will get back to you on what I think about it. ;]
Let us begin by saying that it is a romantic fiction. Incidentally it's also a historical fiction. The heroine is fiery, passionate and headstrong, and the hero is charming, roguish and her match exactly.
It's really a formula that refuses to fail and if the author had not wanted to write a historical romance so badly it could have been

The well sought after and beautiful Lady Sabrina St. Clair was surprised when her coach was stopped on her way to London by highwaymen. How dare they, regardless that it was in the dead of night, her only companion the madenly Lady Bethany Danvers, and that they were riding in a hired coach against several tries to disuade them otherwise. It was a good thing that Sabrina was very skilled with a pistol. The experience, however, still left her upset mostly due to her injured pride and the attracti ...more
I was transported to the past when I enjoyed the pleasure of reading a Georgette Heyer or a lighter Carla Kelly for the first time.
This book was a delightful light Regency Romance that amused me from start to finish. Misunderstandings, witty dialogue, and plot twists were ready fare.

The heroine is a beautiful head strong lady who is used to having male admirers and doing as she pleases.
The hero is a man who has found his fortune and received his title after a harsh upbringing that made him of st
This was a fun regency read. I liked the story and thought that Sabrina and Branderly had good chemistry together. For the most part the story moved along nicely, there were few slow parts that I thought dragged a little, but overall it was very enjoyable. I liked Sabrina, but admit I got a little tired of hearing how beautiful she is and kind of thought she was a little conceited. I liked that she was feisty and stood up for herself, but at times it came across a little too harsh. I guess I wou ...more
This was an enjoyable, clean, spirited regency romance; Georgette Heyer-esque. Well worth the 2.99 on amazon for this story. I thought I would be able to guess the plot right off, but I was wrong! What a happy surprise! The punctuation formatting and editing left something to be desired. I remembered seeing things like "isle" instead of "aisle." All in all, though, a good book.
I loved receiving a personalized version of this ebook! The author captures the Regency voice well in this sweet Regency romance. I'm not a big fan of heroines swearing to demonstrate their "spunk", but aside from that, I enjoyed this fiery and spirited heroine. "A Very Merry Chase" is a welcome addition to the world of clean romance!

This is an old-fashioned book, clean and cute. I liked it. I only think that the plot has a lot of clichés. But it is good entertainment.
Very funny story.
