    delightful quick read

    I love period novels and this one is perfect for a rainy weekend. The author does a great job at making it seem like you are really there. I actually got teary eyed a couple of times. I was shocked when I finished and realized it was a Harlequin book. I don't normally read those and am glad I didn't know because I would not have bothered to read it and would have missed out on a very well written book. I will definately look for more books from this author.

    Redundant and obnoxious

    Yes, this was free download on the Nook (a good thing too because I would have returned it to get my money back); and yes, it's a Regency romance - those are the only 2 things this book has going for it. The characters are so... unremarkable and annoying. They same 5 pages of "angst and drama" are repeated about 100 times. The heroine (and I use that term loosely) is meek and lets just about everyone stomp all over her and the hero (again loosely used) is an ass and frankly kind of moronic. I do not recommend this to anyone and I probably won't be reading any of the author's other work.
    BEFORE anyone says "you just don't get romance," I'd like to say "you're wrong." I LOVE Regency romance. I totally dig Julia Quinn, Sabrina Jeffries, Lauren Willig, Susan Enoch, and so many more romance authors. Elizabeth Rolls, however, is NOT my cup of tea or shot of tequila (which is what I'll be downing if I ever get it into my head to read her again).

    The characters are so strong and perfect for each other...I loved this story from the first page and was hooked until the end. As a lover of historical romance I look foreward to more from this author...

    Worth Every Penny.

    Writing style seemed like it was trying to be period but just came across as convoluted, characters by the end had had SO many "misunderstandings" that I could only assume they were both morons, and the plot clearly relied solely on their constant misunderstandings instead of something - anything interesting. Seriously, had this not been an e-book, I would have thrown it at the wall, repeatedly. There are a great number of historical and regency romances out there that are so much better than this. It's tripe like this that help give the genre a bad rep. At least it was free.

    trust to love

    I stumbled upon this while browsing through ebooks and I figured, why not. The beginning was a bit hard to get through, since the English was so butchered, but the author did a wonderful job with the accent. This was an adult romance that had my arms tingling and tears in my eyes. I had no idea that adult romanced could leave me with such feelings. Normally the ones I find are not as elaborate as this, but I was truly amazed at how caught up I became while reading through the book. I must commend the author for being able to draw the reader into the story. It was very descriptive and pretty much left you feeling what the character felt. The switches between the two characters was a nice touch. It was a bit disorienting at first, but after realizing the technique, it was appreciated. Enjoyable for a quick pass time.

    Loves this Free eBook

    This was my first free ebook so naturally I thought it was going to be dull. Boy was I wrong. This was a fantastic read. I will be looking for this author in the future. Never judge a book by its cover or PRICE.

    his lady mistress is an awesome book

    I read his lady mistress and i thought it was wonderful. I could not put it down until i finished the book. i smiled at parts. I cried at parts and i even sat at the edge of my seat at some parts. i would recommend this book to everyone i know. i would even read it again. I was not aware how life can be for a child that looked so much like her mother and her father can not look at her because her mother's ghost haunts him. I really liked that Max was an outrages man and even his brother was sexy in his own way. I did not likethe Faringdon's. When i read this book i was reading it as if i were Verity. I like to leave my world and go into the books world. I was falling in love with max. I wanted to pull the cousin's hair and i would have done the same thing verity did when she was at the breaking point.

    An easy read

    As a romance novel it was fine. A nice easy read with not a lot of thinking. I enjoyed the escape. It will definitely look up other novels by this author. Her characters were well developed, and interesting enough to care what happened to them. The plot included a lot of frustrating miscommunication, and sometimes you wanted to yell at the characters, but that just made it that much more funl

    Great Read!

    I absoluetly loved this book! I read it once and then went back and read it again. I loved Verity and all the other characters because they were real and well produced. This is definitely a book I would recommend to anyone looking for a good romance novel. A little sexually detailed but other than that it was perfect :)

    Dragging Story

    I have to say the plotline drags on in this story. While it made for good tension in the beginning, after the first 150 pages or so, you were ready for it to be resolved. I give it three stars because of the price - what do you want for free?

    Free Nook Read, and I am very Happy I downloaded it.

    I read this book and the anxoiusness and tender underlying affection captivated me from the first page. There was quite a bit of see-saw frustrated, emotional miscommunication that added to the impossibility of the story. Over all, A+ and I would def buy this in solid form.

    So sweet !

    Verity Scott has had it rough. Her father kills himself in the next room, all of his posessions taken by the crown. She lives with Aunt and Uncle, not to mention her nasty lecherous cousin as a servanr not even allowed the use of her own name.
    Max, Lord Blakehurst served under Verity's father who lost his arm saving Max's life at Waterloo. He seeks Verity out only to be told by her uncle that she too had killed herself. Seeing the servant Selina being abused by the family he offers her a new positiion, as his mistress.
    Max and Verity's story is filled by misunderstandings. And a tender sweetness that is beautiful.

    I loved this book. It kept me interested throughout the whole thing, always wondering what was going to happen next. I have to say, I usually got it a little wrong. :D This is the first book of Elizabeth Rolls that I've read, but it definitely won't be the last.

    It grips you from the beginning

    Rain, superstition, taboo of suicide, a fresh grave...and those are just the first paragraphs! This was a lovely book with a unique plot. Sortof a Cinderella story but the "Prince" is an arrogant stubborn male who refuses to admit he has fallen in love!

    Gripping and sexy (spoilers)

    But a warning: this is more of a victimized heroine, and the tension arises largely from her unfair treatment. There is eventual remeption, though much later.
