Overview

Commitment-phobic Sam Carson has only dated model-gorgeous women. But one stolen kiss from a plain-Jane schoolteacher and he's hell-bent on stripping away her floral dresses and teaching her the art of being bad. If only her good-girl ways didn't make him want to be a better man...

Ally Giordano is at the end of her rope. Her beloved grandmother actually believes that she's living in her favorite romance novel in Regency England and Ally doesn't have the heart to set her straight. But now Granny Donny's last wish is for a retreat to the country and Ally can't refuse her...until she demands that Sam accompany them. And though his smiles turn her knees into jelly, Ally knows better than to trust a playboy...and she definitely knows better than to try to change one. Or does she?

Meet the Author

I love to write. That's pretty much all I do. Ask my family about the undone laundry, the unbought groceries, and the fact that I rarely find time to get dressed in the morning. Actually, if you train your family right, they won't notice any of these things. "Popcorn for dinner again, Mom! Cool," say my filthy children. God bless them, they don't know what panty hose are. Oh, my poor husband. What else is there to know about me? I love kids. I love cats. I love chocolate (not necessarily in that order). And I love to hear from readers. So you can log on to my Web site at www.dianaholquist.com and let me know what's on your mind!

    This is a whimsical contemporary romance

    Her beloved grandma who raised her following the desertion of her parents suffers from dementia; Grandma believes it is the Regency era in England. Although she is leaving New York for San Francisco, high school teacher Ally Giordano wants to do something fabulous for her beloved Granny Donny.

    Ally hires a horse drawn coach to take her grandma to a luxurious estate in the country. The driver Mateo and even the horse Paula persuade Granny Donny that they are in the Regency era. However, the final nail to her belief is Sam Carson, whom she believes is a duke. Matchmaking her granddaughter with a duke, Granny Donny works on her reluctant relative and even more reluctant beau planning the ball of the century.

    This is a whimsical contemporary romance that brings the Regency Era into a modern day environs that will remind readers of Frank Capra's A Pocket Full of Miracles. Sam the rake cannot help but fall in love with the two women who have turned his lifestyle upside down when they made him the heroic prince of Ally's fairy tale as written by Granny Donny. The key characters are fully developed which turns Diane Holquist's quirky romance into a charmer.

    Oh Yeah!

    Author Diana Holquist is as entertaining as her books. According to her, she is a cat person, a horrible cook, hasn't owned a television since 1999, owns only two pairs of earrings and dress shoes, and has a philosophy degree from Columbia University. Other titles include: Hungry For More, Sexiest Man Alive, and Make Me A Match. She resides in upstate New York with her family.
    Ally Giordano was raised by her grandmother after her parents abandoned her for more interesting prospects. Spending her whole life looking at strangers faces in the off chance they may be them, she has now decided to relocate from New York to California, accept a teaching position, and move on. Except, her beloved grandmother most recently thinks she is living in her favorite Regency romance novel, and her doctors aren't sure if she'll ever know reality again. Worse, Granny Donny is positive that she has found Ally a Duke to save her from spinsterhood and intends to have a great ball in the country to woo them together. Commitment-phobic Sam Carson is intrigued by Granny Donny but not at all interested in good girl, Ally. He likes his women naughty and disposable. That is, until he kisses her, and now he is determined to strip away her layers to see the real woman underneath. Can a playboy and a good girl hit it off and find love? Granny Donny sure thinks so.
    If you want a feel good book to bring you out of your normal life, whether it be the kids, work, or anything else, this book is it. If chapter two doesn't have you rolling on the floor laughing so hard you're in tears, then there is something very, very wrong with you. As ridiculously funny as it is clever, you won't be able to put it down. The sweet moments were endearing, the dialog crafty, and the setting was catching. Lovers of historical romance will get a kick out of this and contemporary romance fans will find it delightful. I can truly appreciate a book where the secondary characters are as lovable as the main ones. You'll fall in love with Granny Donny, June, and Mateo. Guaranteed. From a medical standpoint though, I'm not so sure about the reason for Granny's delusion or the medical advice to heal her. Just a thought.
    How to Tame a Modern Rogue, by Diana Holquist, is a wild, wacky, grand flee from reality.

    Would have been better as a Lifetime movie of the week.

    The book was okay. The whole time I was reading it I felt I was reading a script for a Lifetime movie of the week. I kept stopping to think, could they get a permit to do this when filming? The situations were silly and over the top. I can suspend reality just as well as the next person, I read romance novels for goodness sakes but for some reason I could not do it with this book.
