The first two thirds of this story was fabulous but then things got a little serious and mellow; that sort of almost killed the buzz from the first part. But overall, this was laugh out loud funny. There were some great main characters, an eccentric kleptomaniac old lady, an OW who was so frigid...

I liked this one more than I expected. It is unfortunate that at about 70% the story seemed to lose it's way.
The very beginning was a little confusing. It starts off with an older couple who are sneaking in a trysy at a ball. The woman, was not invited due to her reputation, so her lov...

All things being equal, I would have called this effort "a solid C". Except for the opening, there's absolutely nothing original in it, but it's well written and there's some good dialogue. The H/h are interesting, and I actually liked them quite a lot. However, once they have sex, the prose esca...

I read the large print hardcover edition of the book, which has a fairly major misprint on the dust jacket. It claimed the heroine as the hero's deceased father's illegitimate daughter, which NO. This is not an incestuous romance. She's the hero's deceased father's deceased mistress's perfectly l...

Sophie Winstead's mother, Constance (The Widow) Winstead was mistress to the 8th Duke of Selbourne. They died together, literally, when an inept servant opened the doors to the balcony where they were making love and shoved them to their deaths.
Four years later, Sophie shows up at Bramwell Seaton...

Reminded me somewhat of Georgette Heyer's The Grand Sophie.
Sophie and Bramwell's parents died tragically whilst having an affair AND illicit sex on a balcony at a house party. Each has learnt very different lessons from the experience.
Sophie has learnt never to give her heart to a man - her plan...
