Tired of being beholden to relatives, Sarah Compton jumped at the chance to gain a life of her own -- even if, in exchange, she had to guide her cousin through the Season and into a successful marriage. But Sarah never expected that her unconventional ways would attract the eminently proper Lord Malcolm Breckonridge -- and challenge her heart in surprising ways.

Lord Malcolm Brekonridge, Parliamentarian crusader for reform, is in need of a wife. She must be capable of running a good household, intelligent and able to assist him with his work. Love has nothing to do with the matter, he doesn't believe in silly emotions, or so he thinks. At a ball in his honor, Malcolm is bowled over by the Incomparable Miss Persephone Compton, but before he can take his dance with her, her chaperone, cousin Sarah butts in. Sarah, almost thirty, had a disastrous first Sea ...more

The Incomparable Miss Compton by Regina Scott
Uncommon Courtships Series Book Two
Sarah Compton lost more than her parents when they died...she lost her future. Between taking care of her sickly cousin and aunt...she became a spinster. And her cousin became self-absorbed along the way. This Season was showing her how selfish the younger girl was. But hopefully she'd find a husband. And then Sarah could move on to being a teacher. And a spinster.

Malcolm, Viscount Breckonridge, had the perfect woman
"The Incomparable Miss Compton" is a good story. It's a bit light on substance, has characters that occasionally make silly decisions, and contains some of the less-than-appealing cliches - such as a villain secretly bent on revenge and an initial focus of "I love you" being said rather than shown through action. But it's also a quick, fairly amusing read without mistresses or other drama. It's sweet to see the political-obsessed hero slow down and court the on-the-shelf heroine more and more, a ...more

There were some great dialogue and the charactets are great but I was bit annoyed with Sarah near the end and the end was a bit cheesy to me. That's just my preference though. I'm sure others will be perfectly alright with it.

Traditional Regency

Not quite up to the first volume, but an enjoyable story. The early chapters are rather too much call nicer ed with Parliamentary detail and the villain is rather one dimensional. Sarah is a great character. Malcolm could do with rather more wit.

My favorite part is his first marriage proposal. He's so arrogant and she gives him a great set-down. It's a very Elizabeth vs. Darcy moment, and very well done. The rest could have been better I think, though.

A lovely Regency tale. Though part of a series (I did not know this when I picked it up), it reads as a great standalone book. The ending is a bit cheesy and made me roll my eyes, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Very good reading

Great story, believable characters, plot is enticing and hard to lay the book down. Characters are very believable and human.

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn't actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing such as vocabulary, sentence structure, and plot. After numerous short stories and articles in magazines and trade journals, she got serious about her novel writing. The Unflappable Miss Fairchild was her first nove ...more
