*Beauty and the Scarred Hero* is a great read for those who love traditional Regencies in the style of Georgette Heyer. It features Harriet, a hapless young girl running away from an arranged marriage who has the good fortune to meet up with Isabella, the heroine. Isabella is a bit older than the usual twenty-something misses found in romance novels and she has decided to remain a spinster. That is, until she meets Major Reynolds, the battle-scarred and supposedly frightening betrothed of her ward. No need for highwaymen, smugglers, or evil cousins--the plot of this Regency focuses wholly on the principals, and it's a delight. Wonderful dialogue, lots of romantic tension, and sympathetic, likable characters make this a just-about-perfect Regency.
