I was very eager to read the 2nd book in the Burgundy Club series, but I'll admit I was a bit taken aback when I found out it was about Iverley. For a men who was so hated upon in book 1, I was worried that, A, the character was going to be unlikable, or B, he was going to do a complete character switch and become the generic Mr.Perfect. If there is one thing people should know about me, it's that my paranoia is most always wrong. This books gives us a complex and original romance between the akward, sweet, smart, yet perfectly stupid Iverley and the worldly, strong Diana. This book, while romantic, didn't really have me at the edge of my but had me laughing off it on to the floor. I really like the book and would suggest it to other HR dorks like me needing a lighter read.

So the second in the Burgundy Club series. This book is about Iverley. The woman hating, nerd from the first book tells his story. He has a reason to not trust women and tries anyway only to be hurt again by a woman that actually loves him. Diana is smart and strong. This book reads different from other romance novels since poor Iverley is the virgin and Diana an experienced widow. It does not have as many steamy scenes but he does get a lot of ideas from his books so Diana at least enjoys that...it is it funny and a bit naughty. I liked it and our nerd Iverley.

Revenge of the Regency nerd is award-winning author Miranda Neville historical romance The Dangerous Viscount which released September 2010 by Avon Books. You will not find any pocket protectors the THE DANGEROUS VISCOUNT. What you will find is a shy introverted hero who would rather collect his rare editions in peace and quiet. Sebastian Iverley is your typical nerd who is not fond of hunting, fishing and riding. In fact, if you asked him he has a horrible seat. And you most certainly will never her find him a Gentleman Jacks or Whites. But if you need him.which he hopes you don't. Just head to your local library and search for a stunning raven haired main, with spectacles with his head buried in a book. I think Sebastian Iverley is one of the most marvelously crafted alpha male characters that I have come across in a long time. He is wonderfully sincere and wouldn't think of hurting a fly. For this very reason Sebastian has been the butt of jokes since childhood. It takes the initial appearance of our dastardly heroine, the beauty herself, Lady Diana Fanshawe to shake Sebastian's world. But that is crazy because Sebastian Iverely cannot abide woman. Since child hood he has been raised to believe: "Wives. Sebastian knew what wives did. Not from first hand observation. His upbringing and education had been blessedly free feminine interference. But he had numerous male acquaintances and sometimes he couldn't help hearing about a female appendage that most of them had to endure. Wives nagged. They demanded. They spent too much money. They wept when they didn't get their way? A wife was nothing but trouble." Widowed Lady Diana Fanshawe is a spoiled beauty who unforgivably goes along with Sebastian retched cousin, Lord Blakeney( whom she has wanted to marry since she was a child) in a bet. The bet. Get the reclusive shy and untried twenty-six year-old Sebastian to kiss her. She will win five hundred pounds for her trouble. Innocent enough, right, but Sebastian unleashes a longing she has not felt in a very long time. At first glance you really want to hate Lady Diana Fanshawe. I know I did. But I realized through the mastery of Ms. Neville's writing that Lady Diana was crafted that way. Yes she was honing her wiles on Lord Blakeney but like ever proficient writer knows you need to craft a cleverly flawed character to bring them up to scratch. So I give all the credit of my disdain for Lady Diana to Ms. Neville. But don't worry she redeems herself and you fall madly in love with her as she tries to get Sebastian's attention and love. THE DANGEROUS VISCOUNT is plus with lush and interesting characters. Take Lady Dina Fanshawe family.please. Her father has a weighing scale contraption in the front hall way where he weights everyone that enter. I kid you not. Her family is eccentric and anything but a conventional Regency family but they are so bubbly and lovable that you cannot help adoring the. The one stand-out character for me was Sebastian Iverley himself, because I could relate to him even though I am a woman. He might be a stumbling, bumbling highly intelligent fool at times, but underneath all that entire gruff exterior beats the heart of a shy romantic. He might bully his way through because he is uncomfortable with the feelings that Lady Diana stirs. He is not out typical confident alpha male, but by the end of the story we see booth he and Diana blossom and see just by the merest look that they've lo

In 1819, Lady Diana Fanshawe has one goal in life, which is to marry a man whose background is impeccable as her family is filled with scandal. She chooses Lord Blakely and prays he proposes to her at a house party he hosts in Shropshire. Blakely's studious cousin Sebastian Iverley attends the gala too. Though she knows better, her bloodlines come through when she accepts a bet that she can get Iverley to kiss her. Sebastian has already noticed her and is attracted to her. However, he becomes angry when he finds out about the wager. Sebastian decides to teach the twit humility when it comes to feelings of others. They have a night of lovemaking and each wants their relationship to work, but neither takes the first step so it is up to their eccentric families and rare books that the Burgundy Club collectors are fascinated with to bring them together. The second Burgundy Club (see Wild Marquis) Regency romance is a wonderful pairing of two people with the twist of the male behaving as the innocent. With the interweaving of rare book collection enhancing the fine story line, readers will enjoy the adventures in love of the Dangerous Viscount. Harriet Klausner
