I enjoyed this one, although it reminded me a lot of Lord Perfect by Loretta Chase, only this time the adventuresome couple are adults and the protagonists of the story. I liked Maxie and Robin together - although I think it would have been better had "Maxie" not sounded so closely like "Maggie", since part of the story is Robin's getting over Maggie/Margot (Petals in the Storm. And that part of the book I could have done without. It kind of bothers me that Robin still had such intense feelings ...more

Loved this one! Terrific road story of the hero and heroine wending their way down to London from Yorkshire, trying to evade some apparent villains who want to return the heroine to her uncle dead or alive, and also being chased, unbeknownst to them, by the hero's brother and the heroine's aunt (who have a delightful secondary romance during the course of the story). The heroine wants to find out why her father died in London, and the hero, whom she stumbles across on a path in some woods, decid ...more

Review of Kindle Edition of classic Regency historical romance

Lord Robert Andreville (Robin) is in his early 30s and has become extremely burned out and depressed from two causes: The woman he wanted to marry, a fellow spy who for many years worked with him for the British government against Napoleon, has married another man, and after over 12 years of spy work, now that the Napoleonic wars are over, he doesn't know what to do with his life as the younger son of a noble family.

He is staying with

Road trip! Road Trip!
A long long time ago there used to be a publisher by the name of New American Library, or NAL, and they had this wonderful little branch called Signet Regency Romance. They started printing in the late 1970s and lasted until sometime in 2006. Many, many, many authors began with Signet. I loved these little books. I think they would publish

Along the way they run into highwaymen, avoid the relatives searching for them, fight tooth and nail to escape the tough customers determined to keep them out of London, and manage to fall in love and solve the mystery.

I enjoyed this one very much. It was really fun to read. It can be read as a stand alone book.

You can see love almost everywhere in this book. Max and her father; Robin and Maggie, Max and Robin, Max and her uncle, Max and her aunt, Desdemona, Robin and his brother Giles, Giles and Desdemona. I am probably in minority feeling comfortable with Robin and Maggie's love for one another. It is a different love.. a love born from trust, understanding, respect and shared experiences. Even though it was

Heavens above this was a wonderful book. I felt so bad that Robert "Robin" Andreville didn't get Maggie in DANCING ON THE WIND. He so needed someone to love and care for him. I am sure the spying is never easy but in the time period of this book had to be brutal. Robin was a spy for twelve years and the things that he had to do for God and country left him at the breaking point. Ms. Putney does a very good job of showing how bad Robin's emotional state has become. The torture he went through at ...more

Mary Jo Putney is a mixed bag for me, but I love this story. Robin, a charming, well-born, adventurous former spy running from his own demons meets a young woman searching for the answers to her father's mysterious death. Raised in the America by her loving, scholarly wanderer of a father, Maxie is innocent, but has not been sheltered as English damsels are. Though her uncle takes her in after her father's death, she is despised by his spiteful wife and daughters as a half-breed hoyden. Jealous ...more

This was my first Mary Jo Putney book, and what a winner!

Smartly written, with nice character development and a good weaving of history without being clunky. Putney did a wonderful job with the adventure/action writing. Usually I just skim those scenes, but it was so engaging that I read the entire thing.

The Robin/Maxie (I agree with Desdemona that this is a ridiculous nickname) storyline was really nice. The characters play off of each other so nicely. Robin may be almost *too* perfect at the

This book was written in 1990 but it feels quite modern. It is a enjoyable read.

Maxie, half-Indian half-British, came from America with her father to visit her uncle. Her father soon died in London and Maxie eavesdrops on her uncle's conversation that reveals that her father's death was not natural. The girl decides to go to London on foot to discover the truth. Soon, on her way, she meets Robin, a former ace of intelligence ravaged by the demons of the past, who insists on getting Maxie on her

I gave this book 5 stars because of how right Robin and Maxie were for each other. Their imperfections and flaws fit together like a puzzle, and they were better together than apart.
The spy-ish background in this story was more satisfying to me versus a few other titles in the Fallen Angels series (which I still loved, though); Robin's background made him interesting and human. Maxie's history of being from two cultures and the wisdom it produced was beautiful-I am a sucker for intelligent heroi

Wonderful historical- one of the best I read so far. Robin is my perfect hero- he is more sweet than alpha, although he has his alpha-moments as a fighter. His respect for the heroine runs deep, and I like his unconventioanl ways. Maxie is intelligent, courageous and authentic. Their love story is tender and heart-warming...there's absolutely far more than desire between those two. I liked that there are some conflicts and doubts, but they aren't over the top, and both TALK about the things that ...more

Another excellent historical romance. Our hero is Robin Andreville, a retired spy from the Napoleonic Wars who returns home with his charm intact but his mind in turmoil. On a lark he follows Maxie, a half-Mohawk orphan, on her quest to find the truth about her recently-deceased father. Both main characters are thoroughly delightful, and unconventional for the genre.

"One Perfect Rose" (with a fun Shakespearean flavor) by the same author is also outstanding.

Ohhh! what an interesting book! with a Native American lead heroine. This is my first from Mary Jo Putney and I already loved this book. A tortured hero and a "savage" heroine is an interesting mix, not that I'd call Maxie a savage, expect the fat that she has some bloodthirsty instincts of violence. I also love Giles and Desdemona and how they seem to go after Max and Robin. such a feisty couple! 5 stars!

When I begun this novel I was disappointed, could not get interested, almost deleted it from my Kindle, but decided a few more pages...glad I did! One of the best books I Have read for quite sometime. I love historical and recency romance..this one is worth anyone's time!

Love the Hero in this book! I could totally see Brad Pitt playing the heros part. Liked the heroine a lot also, but the hero is just awesome. I even like the secondary romance, which was short. I can honestly say this is the ONLY book that I liked the secondary romance. Great Book!!

I loved this story! There was just something intriguing about Robin that kept me fascinated to the end. I think that the dual love story w/ Giles was a sweet complement as well. As I finished the book, all I could do was smile and sigh. (The hubby just rolled his eyes.)

Re-read of an old favourite. I love how competent Max is and I really enjoy how the relationship between Robin & Max develops and how open they both are about their attraction and trying to ignore it as they travel together. Their adventures are fun and they are well-matched.

Very good and romantic!♥
Me gusto mucho mas esta trama de un pequeño misterio sin tanto reborujo y sin un cruel asesino.
Fue muy emotiva al final, divertida en su desarollo y el plus de leer a los personajes anteriores.

Olvasgattam itten az értékeléseket(moly). Meggyőződésem, hogy nem ugyanarról a könyvről beszélünk. :)))
Kevés ez az öt csillag, hogy elmondjam, mennyire tetszik. Nem titok, mindenik MJP könyvet szeretem, de ez magasan viszi a pálmát, legfeljebb a sorozat hetedik kötete veszi fel vele a versenyt.
Maxima személye nem zavart, nem is izgatott különösebben. A történet kelléke, érdekes színfolt, félvér. A problémát, amiért Londonba ment enyhén szólva is mondvacsináltnak érzem, de tény, hogy nekem nem h

This 1990 Signet Regency Romance was lurking in my basement. When I recently stumbled on it during a ruthless book-reduction project, I realized I had never read it. I went through a decade-long love affair with Regency Romances in the 1990s, but their appeal has faded for me. I thought about tossing it in the donate pile, unread, then changed my mind because the premise of the story was outside the usual scope of a Regency. I noticed right away it is longer than other Signet regencies, clocking ...more

Historical English road trip romance with PTSD healing for the hero. The two main characters literally bump (fall) on each other and become traveling partners, then friends and in the end more... There are definitely little traces of this story in the last book, One Perfect Rose by Mary Jo Putney which was also a road-trip to Scotland which is the opposite because Robin and Maxie are traveling to London. I learned a lot of travel for the common person during this time because all to often an aut ...more

Como los demas libros de esta saga, se lee muy bien y es muy entretenido.
He estado casi mas atenta a la historia de Giles y Desdemona que a la de los protas, que me han parecido un tanto insulsos.

2.5 stars. The first half of this book wasn't that interesting to me. I couldn't get into the story, nothing seemed to be happening, and Robert's not that great of a hero to me. (He does some things I'm leery about, especially at the start, like essentially forcing his presence on Maxima and lying to her).

The second half of this book, while better, still wasn't all that great to me. This is mostly personal preference. I enjoyed the secondary relationship between Robert's brother and Maxima's aun
