Not my cup of tea

This is a profoundly silly book, set firmly in Romancelandia. The plot unfolds like high school summer camp (only in costume): silly contests, talent shows, practical jokes, unconvincing angst, skinny dipping, fumbly heavy petting, tortuously theatrical confrontations, ...
This is a profoundly silly book, set firmly in Romancelandia. The plot unfolds like high school summer camp (only in costume): silly contests, talent shows, practical jokes, unconvincing angst, skinny dipping, fumbly heavy petting, tortuously theatrical confrontations, and lots and lots of exclamation points. Not my cup of tea.

    WHAT A DELIGHTFUL WITTY DEBUT REGENCY HISTORICAL ROMANCE!

    WHEN HARRY MET MOLLY by Kieran Dramer is a funny delightful historical romance set in 1816 London. It is the first in THE IMPOSSIBLE BACHELORS series and this author's debut book. What a delightful, witty debut into Regency historical romance.It is well written with details,depth, fast paced, and a page turner. It has wit, humor, romance, love, sweet sensuality, laugh out loud scenes, courageous witty woman, a romantic wager from the Prince Regent involving mistresses and marriage, and last but not least a sexy hero. The hero, Lord Harry Traemore is sexy, handsome, in pursuit of pleasure,one of the five "Impossible Bachelors", self-indelgent and in for a delightful treat. The heroine, Lady Molly Fairbanks, is TROUBLE, homely to some, independent, witty, speaks her mind even when it gets her into trouble and roped into the ridiculous "Impossible Bachelors" wager to help a "foe".For she and Harry have been enemies for years due to a childish prank that got out of hand. Sending Harry to the military and Molly to her aunt and the country. Harry is in need of a mistress, his has run off with Molly's supposed betrothed. So Harry enlists Molly to be his false mistress. Then the fun begans. Molly has never even kissed or been kissed by a man before, must less been a mistress. Whichever mistress is declared the "Most Delectable Companion" will her lover another year of freedom from marriage. This book is pure entaintment with a few twists and turns thrown into the story. Will true love blossom and lead to "happily ever after"? You will have to read the story to find out. I would recommend this book especially if you enjoy laugh out loud scenes, wit,women coming together to help each other and friends coming together to stand up for one of their own. This book was received for review from the publisher and details can be found at St.Martin's Paperbacks and My Book Addiction and More.

    Funny romping regency

    It all starts when Molly, a then 13 year old girl, madly in love with Roderick, her perfect sister's fiance. When she sees Penelope kissing Harry she writes a love poem, artfully changing the names so no one will know who she was talking about. The plan backfires and she is sent to boarding school and Harry is sent to the military.

    Fast forward and Molly is an adult, Harry is out of the army and they are both stranded in an Inn. Harry needs a mistress to beat out other men of he acquaintance to win a year free of the Parson's mouse trap (as decreed by Prinny) and Molly needs to get home before her father returns and realizes she is gone. A proposal arises, she becomes he 'fake' mistress, and he will get her home safe and scandal free.

    What begins is a journey of self-discovery and at times humorous situations that can make you laugh out loud. We discover how much both Harry and Molly suffered for one juvenile act while the rest of their family is oblivious to how deeply they were affected.

    At times, this story does require some slack given some subtle historical inaccuracies. But, you know, it works for the story. The resolutions outside the romance seems conveniently wrapped up, but I didn't care, the story was sound, the characters likable and definitely worth the read and mention.

    Neat little debut, can't wait to see what else she brings out.

    a wild amusing Regency romance

    In 1808 thirteen year old Molly writes a love rectangle to her beloved Lord Roderick that in spite of changing the names accuses his fiancée her sister Penelope and his brother nineteen year old Harry of a tryst. Their families are outraged with Harry the spare exiled into the army for disloyalty to his family and Molly sent to Yorkshire to learn to behave at the Providence School for Wayward Girls.

    In 1816, Harry is back enjoying high society when the Prince Regent names him and others as "Impossible Bachelors" and places a wager on who of these rakes has the most delicious mistress. On her way to Gretna Green to marry milksop Cedric Alliston, Molly meets Harry at a seedy inn with piss poor beer. Both are stunned to watch his lightskirt Aphrodite leave with her fiancé. Desperate as his sure shot win at the Most Impossible Bachelor competition left in a coach, Harry suggests to the enemy whose mouth left him in army for five years that she replace Aphrodite as his pretend mistress. She agrees reluctantly but as remittance he must find her a suitable loving husband. He agrees to her stipulation as he muses let the games begin to see who survives the single the royal contest.

    This over the top of Big Ben (even with the clock not constructed for several decades to come) is a wild amusing Regency romance starring two likable protagonists who holds the other culpable for their exile. The story line is ultra fast-paced with the audience laughing at the gender war and the competition. With villains causing further humorous havoc, historical fans will relish this jocular look at who will be the last rake surviving the island.
