From My Blog...[return][return]Amelia Grey sweeps the reader back to the Regency era where within the ton, all ladies are proper and men are gentleman, or so it appears. Appearances can be quite deceiving and deception is well played in Never A Bride. Lady Mirabella Wittingham has been quite the talk of the ton, first her fiancé Viscount Camden Brackley up and leaves her for America, and worse is Lady Mirabella’s obsession with kissing all the eligible men in the ton. True, Lady Mirabella has just cause for she is searching for the rogue who lead to the tragic end of her young cousin’s life. However in so doing, she may destroy her reputation unless her wayward fiancé is able to assist her in the quest. Never A Bride is a fairly predictable read in one sense and a delightful mystery in another. Grey does an excellent job combining mystery and romance amongst the Regency era backdrop. Grey’s characters are without a doubt interesting and quite unconventional, especially the main characters Camden and Mirabella. Overall, Never A Bride makes for a charming afternoon of reading. Her next Regency book A Viscount to Wed will be released in the spring of 2011. Fans of Regency romance novels with strong and unconventional characters will most likely enjoy this novel.
