This was is wonderful book about a young woman coming of age that was pretty much tossed away by her aunt and sent to a boarding school and forgot about. Chelsea is young innocent little minx, who says whatever is on her mind most of the time. Her best friend is Sam, I love the way they tease one another all the time. But who will she chose her best friend or the rogue of a man who was assigned to escort her around?

I’m a huge fan of Regency Romance books and I have to say I loved Claudy Conn’s book. The plot flowed nicely together to make a wonderful story. Once I started Runaway Heart I had to finish it. I was done the same day I started. The characters are wonderful and well written. Chelsea is defiantly my favorite. She reminds me of my self sometimes as she does not have a filter and says things she should sometimes keep to herself Hehe. You really fall into the book and time period. I’d recommend you reading it if you haven’t already.

Good Read

The writing flows well it pulls you in but it is crude in the romantic scenes. When I got to those parts felt like I was reading a story from a nudey magazine. Otherwise, contains good humor and created a good visual for the reader.

    Fine but not too developed

    This was quite a short read and it would have been nice to explore the characters more thoroughly, but overall it was pleasant.

    Just OK

    This book was just ok for me. The romance seemed rushed, and I could have done without the vulgarity.

    So-so read.

    While I love most of the books I've had the pleasure of reading, I didn't fully enjoy this book. The writing itself is not terrible, but the characters bothered me. Chelsea is apparently a girl that is very sweet but feisty and says anything that comes into her head. She can ride a horse very well, is a paragon of kindness (saving a kitten, then a gypsy girl from abuse) and apparently a great shot with a pistol. It felt like she could do everything and it seemed so random. Brett wasn't as interesting as I originally thought. The only upside for me was Sam. Out of all of the characters, I felt that Sam was someone I could relate to and seemed real. Brett and Chelsea felt entirely too contrived. Still, it was an okay book considering it was free.

    Ok

    Over all it was a good story. Thought language a little off, some to modern and some to old (14th century to old). And yes ended way to early. Needs at least one more chapter.

    For free it is a good book. It is not even 348 pages like some reviewers wrote, because it skipped pages, is less than that. That said, it started really good but a little slow and the main couple get together just once and soon after it, the book ends. This let me to archieve the book,
    I was really disappointed with it.
