Kitty Fairwell is finally living her dream, dancing at the finest balls of London society, but when a friend is ruined by a blackguard, she leaves everything behind and together they travel to the country and the home of her war hero, war damaged brother. Between taking over the organization of her brother’s estate and longing to return to London’s glamor, she finds an attraction to the estate manager, her brother’s best friend.

John Stanger is no regular manager. He and Ned F

The book was a light read, quite cheerful mainly because of the heroine, quite satisfying because of the hero. Maybe I would have needed something deeper characterising for thinking that I would like to read this again and again... I recommend the book for all the regency lovers.

To give you a frame for why it's incredible that I'm giving this book 5 stars: I'm not generally a romance fan, because I tend to find the MC (or, more usually, the love interest) a little too flawless. And historic romance often gets my hackles up because of the total inaccuracies. These things pull me totally out of a story. Add author-based wish fulfillment on top of that and I'm just ready to abandon the genre entirely. But A Good Kiss is Hard to Find exceeded my expectations in the best way ...more

I've been in a reading slump for the past month, and this amazing book shook me out of it. So thank you, Augustine Lang! Haha :)

I adore this book. If you've been following my reviews, you know that I'm a sucker for a best friend's sister trope, and Lang delivers beautifully.

Kitty is someone I'd definitely want to be friends with. She's bookish, she's loyal, she's funny, she examines her thoughts and actions and does what she believes to be right even when it's hard... I kind o

Rough Beginning but Good Romance

I am of several minds of this book. I enjoyed the family aspect of it. The Fairwell siblings are a varied and somewhat contentious lot, which makes for good reading. I liked that the siblings were so distinct and that there was a clear power structure within the family, even though some were chafing against it. I enjoyed the romantic aspect of this story, as I particularly liked the hero. It is fun at times to have a hero who is not wealthy or of the nobility, whi

I'm still trying to decide how this book sits with me. I loved the story, the dialogue was great. the setting was believable and fun to read about, the characters were intriguing with compelling stories; sounds awesome, right? :) I think what tripped me up was that this was the first Regency Romance that I have read that falls in the category of 'a bit more spicy'. I knew it wasn't going to be a 'romance romance' because it didn't have a racy cover photo, but I was a little caught off guard by t ...more

A historical novel with many moments where you get a smile on your face.

Kitty is the youngest in a family of 6 children, the oldest 3 of whom are her half-brothers and half-sister. As a well-behaved young woman, she has her season in London to find a man to marry. She finds this in Percy Wolcott. Although, when she kisses him she feels little. And she expected otherwise. It makes her think about love and passion. Then her friend comes to her. The man she felt lusted for and let go by hit her har

I loved the characters
Augustine Lang is a new author for me and I enjoyed her book a great deal. I loved the characters Kitty Fairwell and John Stanger. The attraction between them was engaging and had me wishing the best for both of them. Kitty has such a giving heart and really a person you would love to have as a friend. The ending was so well-written and I look forward to other books by Ms. Lang. I did receive a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.

3.5 stars. Not clean. This has one racy scene (Kindle location 2107 to 2124) that makes it more of a PG-13 rating. The rest of the book is adorable and fun.

This was a gentle, sweet romance. Even the Big Bad thing managed to seem not too bad with the interjection of humor.
I am especially excited for Ned and Louisa's story in book 3.

I write Regency romances in which the men act like gentlemen...even when they're not.

My books are sweet in tone but with varying levels of steam (always labelled in the description). Happily-ever-afters are guaranteed!

My intention is always to make my readers laugh and cry, but most important to me is that you will close my books feeling happy! There isn't enough happiness in the world and I'm try
