    an amusing yet poignant novel

    Everyone knows that Lady Nicole is the extroverted twin while her sister Lady Lydia is the introvert. Lydia likes the quiet cocoon and felt anchored and safe until her beloved Captain Swain Fitzgerald died at Quatre Bras last year.

    On the battlefield, the Duke of Malvern Tanner Blake promised his best friend Swain that he would take care of Lyddie. He now plans to keep his death battlefield pledge by finding her a suitable spouse. However, the problem he has is he wants to be that suitable spouse but also feels guilty that he is betraying his late friend. Meanwhile Lydia realizes she loves Tanner, but to get him to realize that Swain will be smiling in heaven if they marry in love seems difficult for him to grasp.

    Following up on older brother Rafe's story (see How to Tame a Duke) and twin sister Nicole's tale (see How To Tame a Lady) with the third sibling's romance, Kasey Michaels beguiles her Regency romance readers with an amusing yet poignant novel. Lydia is terrific as her preference is not to be the life of the party or even a wallflower, but to not attend the gala. Tanner is a bit more typical of the historical as he fights falling in love because he feels that emotion betrays his honor and pledge to his late friend. Although straightforward with a theme used frequently before, the refreshing mouse that roared turns this into another superb historical Daughtry family saga.

    Exciting Regency Historical Romance!

    HOW TO BEGUILE A BEAUTY by Kasey Michaels is a delightful Regency historical romance/mystery set in 1816 England.It is well written with details and depth. It has mystery, wit, betrayal, romance, sensuality, murder and forgiveness. The heroine is devastated when her fiance dies in the war, she is quiet, reserved, well mattered, the she realizes there is more to life and learns to enjoy life and falls in love again. She is strong,determined and charming. The hero is handsome, strong, just as determined as the heroine, he is after all the one who brings our heroine the bad news of her fiance's demise. Her fiance is his friend and is asked to take care of her on his friend's death bed, and as things progress he falls in love with her and the adventure begins. Everyone it seems know they are in love except for them of course. They can/t seem to believe this could for true, for our heroine also believes herself to be sly and undesirable. Our hero believes his dead friend will always be between them. This is an exciting, fast paced, page turning story. I would recommend this book. This book was received for review from Net Gallery and details can be found at My Book Addiction and More and HQN.
