Recommends it for: braindead people who want extra light wallpaper historicals (NTTIAWWT)
You know when someone has a good joke and doesn't expand upon it and just tries to stretch this same joke as long as they can til it stopped being funny, oh about twenty minuted ago? Well, that's Rules of Engagement by Kathryn Caskie in a nutshell. In this specific instance, playing on the saying "All's fair in love and war." Caskie takes the cute idea of using a military text as a how-to manual for getting engaged and stretches it, stretches it . . . wait for it . . . and stretches it some more ...more

Mmkay, right of the bat I have a problem. I wasn't aware any self-respecting Scotsman said "Dash it all".
The "rules" before every chapter are cute and funny but it seems to be taking me a long time to get into this book.
Oh how I really wanted to get into this book but I just couldn't. There just was no story here.
Annoying how Magnus says "ye" every time, just once say "you" Please! I know, I know, he is Scottish but saying "ye, verra, canna," seem to be the only time he resembles a Scottish man.

I see now why this book won Ms. Caskie a RITA award for her debut novel! I loved the love story of headstrong Eliza & great hulking & romantic to boot, Magnus! Delicious love scenes and heart stopping declaration of love will make you not put this book down til you finish!

Recommends it for: Regency Era fans
I really enjoyed this light hearted romance. I actually didn't mind all the mixups and misunderstandings that can get a bit old after a while. I loved the h/h and were glad when the heroine stopped fighting fate and the hero never wavered from what he wanted. Very cute.

Well, I don't read historicals anymore simply because at one point it pissed me off that woman were held to different rules than men. But for some reason I was in the mood to dive back into this genre and just grabbed this book.

Surprisingly it got me hooked. I was drawn into the story and couldn't stop reading, because I really liked the bickering and dancing around that Magnus and Eliza did. I always like men in historicals who doesn't quite fit in and I always like woman who don't care much a

Very drawn out and overly dramatic.

The premise was interesting, applying war strategies into romance, and it had its moments but for me the story missed the mark. Most of its characters are shallow and two-dimensional, a couple are downright unlikable and the descriptions of some scenes didn't make much sense or weren't very well executed.

It took me a long while to get through and I'm usually a pretty fast reader and if I read another of the author's books (this was my first one) it will not be

Everyone said how funny this book was, but I didn't think so. The premise and the scenes were just dumb.
