    I would recommend

    I enjoyed this book very much. But what I really loved about it was that it belonged sandwich between to other books w the same characters which made this book a very intriguing piece to an amazing series. The books r considered stand alones but these three books contain the same characters n share a timeline. The first is "when dashing met danger" then this book "pride in petticoats" n finally "lord n lady spy". Again these books accumulative kept me up reading to well into the early morning laughing. I give pride n petticoats 4 out of 5 stars. Big cheers for author shana Galen. Now only if her publishing company can market these stand alones right it would go much further. On a hush hush note I laughed so hard that it actually interested my husband enough that he too read them n liked it more then he would have liked to. Now that says something don't it, but shhh I promised to never tell.

    A Lyrical Historical Romance

    Freddie Dewhurst is a dandy, with a capital D-A-N-D-Y. Attire, attitude, and appearance are everything. Appearances, however, can be deceiving, and behind Freddie¿s puffed-up façade is a loyal British spy. Who, then, could be a worse match for him than an uncouth, uncultured, unfashionable American? Charlotte Burton has no love for the British. More like raging hatred. They are, after all, responsible for the deaths of her father and brother. It is only under the most desperate of circumstances that she ventures to London to make one last effort to restore her finances. On the day of her arrival she gets caught in the middle of a spy-hunt. Her family friend--the sought after spy--escapes, promising to return for her but leaving her in the custody of two British spies. Namely Freddie and his cousin. Freddie¿s mission is to capture the escaped spy before the traitor can sell vital British codes to the French. Charlotte¿s is to protect her friend--and herself--from yet another British-inflicted fate. Freddie¿s superior at the Foreign Office comes up with a plan to draw the spy out: Freddie and Charlotte will pretend to be married and madly in love. Though neither likes the idea, they finally agree that this is the only way for both to get what they want. Freddie will get the spy that holds British lives in his grasp. Charlotte will get one thousand pounds for her troubles and the assurance that Freddie will give her friend a fair chance at proving his innocence. The sham marriage soon turns steamy as Freddie¿s kisses make Charlotte forget why she hates the British and Charlotte¿s fire and vitality make Freddie long to break rules he¿d always held so sacred. Despite meddling mothers, battles of wit, and years of pride and prejudice Freddie and Charlotte draw closer and closer as the charade continues. And when it comes down to it, each will have to make the choice between love and country. A sensual and seductive tale, Pride and Petticoats weaves together intrigue, passion, and a nobly flawed hero and heroine that come to life and beg to be read with the same investment of emotion that both characters must make in the end. If you are looking for a masterpiece of historical romance lyrically told and fiery enough to singe your fingers, then look no further than Pride and Petticoats.

    enjoyable boudoir War of 1812

    In 1813, American Charlotte Burton arrives in London to see hometown friend Cade Pettigru and to save her family firm Burton Shipping which is in near ruin due to her father¿s gambling and womanizing and now the death of her sire and her brother caught smuggling. Several men burst into Cade¿s room he kills one before fleeing. Cousins Sir Sebastian Middleton and Lord Alfred ¿Freddie¿ Dewhurst take Charlotte prisoner until they can figure out where she fits in this espionage case. Freddie, who is immediately attracted to the Yank, insists that Cade stole coded messages that he plans to sell to the French if he obtains the code definitions. His Foreign Office boss Lord Edwards directs Freddie to pretend he married the colonist so they can use her as bait to catch Cade. Freddie says no one would believe a dandy like him would marry an uncouth Yank, but agrees to try it. Charlotte agrees when he offers her money and the chance to prove Cade is innocent. --- They make the perfect couple. She scorns his heritage and he knocks American freedom limited to white males. At breakfast Freddie tells Charlotte he is her master so she dumps coffee on his lap. As his mom screams annulment, the combatants fall in love, but Cade remains a thorny issue between them. --- The sequel to when DASHING MET DANGER is a superb Regency romance due to the strong lead couple and interesting multifaceted perspectives on the War of 1812. The story line is at its best whenever the prime duo tears down the other¿s most sacred institutions with simple logic. Though the anticipated confrontation with Cade is anti-climatic, fans will enjoy the boudoir War of 1812. --- Harriet Klausner
