Fun Regency Romp, Sweet Romance

From the very beginning, we¿re hooked. Someone wants to kill the Prince Regent, and he¿s called England¿s top spy back from Portugal to investigate. There¿s only one problem. Captain Jack Dryden, the second son of a country squire, has no ties to the ton. So, the Regent...
From the very beginning, we¿re hooked. Someone wants to kill the Prince Regent, and he¿s called England¿s top spy back from Portugal to investigate. There¿s only one problem. Captain Jack Dryden, the second son of a country squire, has no ties to the ton. So, the Regent throws him together with Daphne Chalmers, a plain, but well-connected spinster. Her society connections are impeccable, and she doesn¿t gossip. She¿s the soul of discretion.

This is not the usual stiff Regency romance. The heat builds relentlessly between two unlikely characters. The handsome spy, whom she refers to as Captain Sublime in private, makes an unlikely proposal. They should pretend to be engaged to explain time spent together while they search throughout the ton for likely assassins.

The older, on-the-shelf sister of the wife of the regent¿s cousin, Daphne scoffs at the idea of passing herself off as his fiancé. He convinces her no one will question why a penniless young gentleman would want to ally himself with the daughter of a wealthy earl.

In spite of realizing a liaison between them cannot be, these two improbable lovers lose their hearts to each other. The romance fairly sizzles off the page as the two succumb to a relationship based on honesty and passion.

So wanted to like it...........................

So didn't! Couldn't stomach Daphne. She was indifferent to her sisters tears when she found out her husband was having an affair. Chided her for acting low class because she cared. Was blase that her father had mistresses and probably several illegitimate children....
So didn't! Couldn't stomach Daphne. She was indifferent to her sisters tears when she found out her husband was having an affair. Chided her for acting low class because she cared. Was blase that her father had mistresses and probably several illegitimate children. She did feel bad that Jack was of a lower class then her and therefore they had no future. After all she was an Earls daughter. And he was a lowly second son of a country squire. Oh and a gallant army officer. Isn't that where true love is supposed to come in? Frankly she was a snobby elitist who thought morality was something practiced by the lower classes. She called Jack stodgy because he had a moral backbone. She felt bad for him because he was her social inferior. I hate to not finish a book but I finally gave up at page 144. I'm sure they had a happy ending but believe me Jack got the short end of the stick.

    Fun to read, escape into royal past

    Spies, plots to kill the regent and his daughter and mysteries galore set among the "ton." Will Captain Dryden maintain his personal honor while spying on the lives of the decatant ton to protect the regent? Has Lady Daphne - uniquely funny,friend to all, but besotted with none - finally met her "noble" match? Truly enjoyable read.

    Heyo Hawkmoon

    How you've been? Can you advertise AshClan (of course), The Elite's training camp, and LightClan?<p>
    AshClan: well, as a fellow member, and once member (Myntlight), to another, you should know all about them.<p>
    The Elite's training camp: it is at 'power systems' all results. Director is Darkness and one of the trainers is Striking. Only for the best of the best and ought to be active with at least semigood spelling and grammer. And little to no powers.<p>
    LightClan: it is at 'carcal' all results. Leader is Wingstar, but Mossstar is taking his place until he gets back. Temporary deputy is Suntail. We need a medicine cat, and everything from kits to elders.<p>
    Thank you. Myntlight, Striking, Mossstar/Duskclaw and co.

    LOVED IT!

    This was a very good, fast read. I enjoyed every minute of it, fast paced, entertaining good read. Very well written book, the characters were well fleshed out, felt like you could be friends with them, if you were in that time, I will buy more books from Cheryl Bolen, based on this one. Good choice!
