    Lynsay Sands proves she is the writer to watch!!

    This tale is a delightful fresh gem....from the opening pages that finds the sensible, but somehow always in odd situations, Maggie dressed as the famous Madam X balanced precarious on the window ledge outside a Baudy House, she can little know her climbing back inside will be witnessed by her brother's friend, James. See Maggie's brother died at the battle of Waterloo saving James' life, and as he lie dying in James' arms, he extracted a promise that James would protect and take care of Maggie. Maggie has found herself in a difficult situation of the family money passing on to the heir, leaving her with a huge London townhouse and a large staff of servants she cannot turn away....so she is forced to 'moonlight' to keep everyone fed and housed. James is sure she is the famous Madam X, and woman of great allure and the current rage of the males of the Ton...and he is going to reform her and starts by kidnapping Maggie....for her own good, mind you!! It is one mad comedy of errors and one delightful read.

    Lynsay Sands is proving to be a powerhouse!!

    Lynsay is proving to be a consistently strong writer. She has a natural voice, that captures you from the first and keep you hooked till the end. She is fresh, humourous and one of the brightest rising stars in the Romance Field. The Reluctant Reformer has a knock out of a cover - hey, doesn't he look like Mel??? But it is Lynsay, doing what she has done time after time, delivering one enjoyable read. From the very first when our Mel look alike takes matters into his own hands and rescues our damsel not so in distress, Lynsay's natural voice catches and keeps you. Another Gem!!! WISE Writers and Readers Book of the Month for February.

    engaging Regency

    Lord James Huddleton promised to protect the sister of his now deceased friend. However in 1815 he never expected to learn from Bow St. that the sibling Margaret Wentworth is the notorious courtesan Lady X. As bad, the chit is heading to Madame DuBarry¿s establishment frequented only by male members of the aristocracy. <P>Not sure how to reform the fallen lady, who apparently has had sex with everyone but him, James kidnaps Margaret even though she denies his accusations. However, James soon finds himself falling in love with his captive who reciprocates his feelings. As he learns that she is not Lady X, James needs to keep his beloved safe, as someone wants her dead. <P> James is a caring individual who sticks by his word though no one but he knows what he vowed. However, he also learns that good intentions can prove a strange road. The identity crisis is amusing, as readers who like an earnest battle between the sexes will laugh a lot. Though Margaret¿s danger adds excitement, that subplot spins away from the prime theme of THE RELUCTANT REFORMER. Still, Lynsay Sands furbishes an engaging tale that the Regency crowd will find delightful. <P>Harriet Klausner
