Feb 12, 2020 rated it really liked it
Regency romance is one of my favorite sub-genres of historical romances to read. I have said this often, but I love imagining what it was like back then. I have a fascination with the English ton, the Lords, and Ladies. So, when I saw that this book was available for review, I jumped on it.

Lily for My Enemy is the 2nd book in the Lockhart Sweet Regency Romance series. It can be read as a stand-alone. As always, I do suggest reading book one to familiarize yourself with the world. But in this

With an original plot that showed a side to the Regency Era I haven't much thought of, this book not only gave me a fun glimpse into history, but the romance was so great! Felix is a member of the House of Lords and heir apparent to his father's revered title. Jocelyn is the very informed and opinionated daughter of a prominent member of the House of Commons. With a bit of a Romeo and Juliet/Westside Story vibe, this book was so interesting as it showed how hard it might be for a titled ...more

This is the second book of the Lockhart series and I loved it just as much as the first! Perhaps even more actually, so this is really 5.5stars haha
I love the interactions between Felix and Jocelyn. We first meet Felix in book one and we get to learn a bit of his backstory in that one so I definitely recommend reading that book first, especially since a lot of the characters from the first one are mentioned again throughout this one.
The character development throughout this series has been

This story had elements to it that I don't often see in clean regency romance. At least not the ones I read. It was very much based in politics and the love interests are very much opposites in political beliefs. So it was fun to watch how they navigate those differences and then you also get a Romeo and Juliet element because the families of course hate each other. Their relationship seems doomed from the start.

I liked both characters and enjoyed their banter and the growth in their

I loved this story, it was so romantic and sensitive. When Lord Felix Lockhart, Earl of Sutby and heir apparent to the Marquess of Ramport, first saw Miss Jocelyn Hunt it was at a musicale. He had hoped to hear some good music but that was not his lot in life. They had gotten into an argument. She had run into him again at the hot house where flowers could be gotten. She loved flowers especially Lilies.
Her father was the Head of Commons and his dad was very influential in the House of Lords.

Felix and Jocelyn are from two different worlds, almost. Felix will eventually take his father's seat in the Lords. Jocelyn's father has a seat in the Commons. These two houses have never agreed and have had a contentious attitude towards any that don't agree with their philosophy.

When Felix and Jocelyn first meet in London, there are sparks from their bantering, but the more time they spend together, the more their feelings change and the more time they want to spend together. When their

This book was received from the Author/Publisher, in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I loved this story and I finished it in two days.  Even though this is the second book in the Lockhart series it can be read as a stand-alone. So far it appears that each book will focus on a different sibling in the Lockhart family.  This is A Proper Romance novel.

I really liked how this book wasn't just about how the Lady wanted to be loved for more than her dowery or

Wonderful story just up my alley. I love enemy to lover type books as well as some playful banter. Lord Lockhart was raised in privilege and to a certain way of thinking. He was challenged by a beautiful, outspoken women with a completely different viewpoint. Although both wanted to improve England they had very different ideas on how to accomplish that goal. Jocelyn and Felix got to know each other while putting aside some of their differences. They came to value each other in ways they didnt ...more

I really enjoyed this second book in the Lockhart Regency Series. Miss Hart and Earl Sutby really shouldn't have any reason to spend time together but their first conversation caused a spark of interest. On opposite sides of the parliament divide there's trouble for both of them if they spend any time together but their 'chance' encounters are so enjoyable.
I enjoyed the characters and the depth of thought and the way they both developed through the course of the book. I was on the edge of my

To say Jocelyn had an unusual upbringing would have been an understatement. Her House of Commons father had no qualms discussing politics with his daughter. Felix is the heir apparent to an Marquise, but has never taken an interest in politics or following his father. Sparks fly in more ways than one. What do you do when the young lady you wish to pursue father refuses to allow you to court her? Felix does get creative. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading about Cassandras ...more

Overall, I give this a 4 star because I was able to stay engaged, I was curious how the h & H would resolve their issues and would they come together. I like family series and it was nice to see what happens to other members of the family. Lud & gads wasn't used as much as in the 1st book & I appreciated that. I did still wish other words were used besides those two. I think the story was creative and original. The book showed pride can come from all sides. Those with title and the ...more

Witty, tender and compassionate

Please this is not a simple Regency romance although it does have a happily ever after traces the journey of a couple from the opposite sides of the political spectrum with wit, compassion and understanding of political reality. I was tempted to call this review Romeo and Juliet we visit us, at and here and here are well Im not immature adolescents and intelligent young people who grapple with the reality of the situation to find their resolution. The characters

My favorite thing about L. G. Rollins book, Lily for My Enemy, was the characters ability to see past their own beliefs and listen to someone with a different viewpoint. I think the characters were well-written and showed diversity and strength of character. This was a sweet and clean love story between two people who started as political enemies. The progression of their relationship was lovely with a wonderful happy ending. Great book!
I received a complimentary copy of the book. All opinions

I was entranced with the story of Jocelyn and Felix. What a time to have lived in.... Jocelyn was very advantaged to have a father who allowed her the liberty of being educated and to speak her own mind. This made for sparks when she met Felix who was raised to be a lord and her father was a member of the House of Commons. But those sparks lead to challenging and entertaining conversations! Read the book to see if flames ignite😀. I received a complimentary copy of this book and chose to write a ...more

This is a great story thatll have you rooting for Jocelyn and Felix. Jocelyns father is a member of Commons and Felixs father has a seat in the House of Lords. Can two people with different political leanings and backgrounds find a way for romance? They both have obstacles to overcome, but isnt romance a great motivator? I loved the characters and the interesting world they lived in. This is the second in this series and I enjoyed it as much as the first one! ...more

I loved these characters. Jocelyn Hunt is intelligent, beautiful and loving with a little bit of sass. Felix is loyal, kind and smart. Sparks fly when they meet, sparks of an argument. Their fathers are on different sides politically. When chance meetings become more than chance, a romance starts to bloom. I found this book so good I read it in a day. I love how this author writes.

I LOVED this book. I stayed up till 2 A.M. to finish it. I enjoyed hearing about the Lords Vs. the Commons- I didnt know much about them before reading this book. The characters were funny and relatable. It had a happy ending which I always want and also a intro to an upcoming book (I hope). I would recommend this book- it was a very good read. ...more

Really nice regency era unlikely-friends to more story. This is one of those stories that shows how hard it was to live under the rules of such a structured society.

Little slow, but a fun story as they grow to love each other.. I like how strong and non-beat around the bush the conversations are- no big misunderstandings, good clean read

Enjoyable read!  This is the second book in the Lockhart series and although it can be read as a standalone, reading the first book provides more background to the characters.  I really enjoyed this book as much as the first one!  I loved how Felix and Jocelyn's relationship grew and it was a very believable and natural progression. I also enjoyed watching Felix grow as a person throughout this novel.  I am looking forward to the next book in the series!   I would recommend this to anyone who ...more

This lovely story boasts witty banter and earnest characters you sympathize with.  The conflict, that of being together seeming impossible, is well handled.  The characters' growth to deal with this challenge, as well as growing to fulfill their responsibilities, makes for a satisfying conclusion. 

While the story is self contained, it is best when read as part of the series - references to minor characters' backstories are sprinkled throughout.
Feb 19, 2020 rated it it was amazing
Such a fantastic regency romance! The writing is crisp, the characters are engaging, and the plot is unique. It has a great mix of humor and romance and the dialogue between the main characters is so refreshing. This is a clean and charming read - I can't wait for the next book in this series!

I received a complimentary copy of this book but am voluntarily leaving a review of my own opinions.

For L. G. Rollins, conversations regarding Schrodingers cat, the effects of scientific advancements on politics, and whether Infinity is better categorized as a number or an idea are all quite commonplace. To be short, she is an unapologetic nerd. Mix in her love of whimsy and the unusual, and you get Steam and Shadow, a steampunk series of science, sweet romance, and unexpected adventures.
