And another new to me author to end this week of traditional regency reading. I'm happy to say it was a good read and I hope to read a few more of her books in the future.

She was no better than she should be, according to the Duke of Buckingham's uncle. She had somehow tricked the Duke's ne'er-do-well cousin into marriage under havey-cavey circumstances and now refused to hand over her son to his grandfather's custody after her husband's death. Still, she certainly would be no match for the powe

Wow! Intense, angsty, fantastic. A real emotional punch packed into a short "traditional Regency". The 2 main protagonists start out with a strong dislike towards each other, mainly the fault of the hero, who starts out as an extremely unlikable character, but they both change, reveal their better sides and grow towards each other. The hero almost throws it all away near the end in a very nasty and mostly unjustified rant at the heroine, but he manages to redeem himself quite nicely by the end.

An emotional story of a young mother's struggle to withstand the power of her vengeful father-in-law to gain custody of her children. Wrongfully adjudged a "strumpet" and a "doxy", the heroine's genuine goodness and innocence ultimately shines through the veil of lies and wins the heart of a wealthy Duke.

Well written, but I disliked the hero.

A well written regency. Quite angsty with the heroine a really nice woman continually misjudged by the hero. If any book ever needed a good grovel this would be it, after the hero wigged out near the end. I feel that this book was let down a bit by the lack thereof. I did enjoy it though.

Who does angsty bitterness better than Lange. Mix up pride, darling twins, a proud, impoverished widow and a powerful duke and you have an absorbing tale indeed.

Even though this is more a 4 1/2 stars, it's very much on my re-read circuit.
