amusing historical romance

In 1831 England, Isadore ¿Izzy¿ Temple thought she was having an erotic dream until she heard her bed companion moan. She realizes that a drunken Eppingham Rowley is sharing her bed. When other members of the Ton catch them in bed, the innocent Izzy claims a lover¿s spat to ease the pressure off of the alcoholic sautéed Eppingham. She also knows she is ruined as far as the Ton is concerned because everyone now believes that she is a FALLEN woman of no virtue except for Eppie, who knows the truth.

Regardless of her defense of him, Eppie does the right thing and marries Izzy. However, he soon finds his intoxicated turn into the wrong bed may have been the best thing that ever happened to him. Izzy brings light to his worried soul and soon he is besotted with love for her.

FALLEN is an amusing historical romance that stars two wonderful characters and secondary players who add depths to the layers of misinterpretation of feelings and relationships. The story line is fun and filled with double meanings and tongue in cheek (not saying whose) retorts that add to the delectation. Celeste Bradley satirizes her sub-genre in a mirthful manner that should bring acclaim and a large contingency of readers to this debut author.

i really enjoyed this book until the end when the friction between Izzy and Julian just kept on and on and on and on and on, etc., etc., etc. I finally put it down sometime before the last chapter and never finished it. Conflict in love stories is good, but when it goes on too long it irritates and bores. Time to move on to another book.

    Izzy makes my day!

    Having read perhaps five romances in the course of my life, I am far from an expert on the genre; I'm glad to have had the good fortune to find this one! Amusing and passionate, the story of Izzy and Julian has a spark of real, human honesty that so many stories lack...I strongly recommend it to those who enjoy not only a good romance but also a good read. (in addition, the tasteful cover makes this book quite acceptable in public!)

    Cute book

    Good book. Simple read. The characters were very like able. Without giving away too much of the plot, hated the resolution to the main character's "problem." That was stupid. I would recommend this book.
