Overview

Never, in all her twenty years of life, had Star Berkley seen the likes of Sir Edward. He was so damned arrogant, so damned fashionable, and so damned insolent-and he was the most handsome man she had ever come across!

Sir Edward, for his part, could do without the pert country airs of a chit like Miss Berkley. She was impish, plain-spoken, and obviously not his sort, which was just as well, for it seemed she had stolen the heart of his closest friend.

Then Sir Edward stumbled onto a most sordid secret: the Berkleys' estate teetered on ruination, and brother and sister were being brutally blackmailed by a vile den of thieves.

Sir Edward meant to save them, if Star would allow him, and he was a determined man, determined that she would allow him ... everything.

READ WILDFIRE FIRST! I didn't realize this book follows some character's from Wildfire. I disliked Sir Edward in Wildfire, and what he cause Lady Babs and couldn't believe the author made a book about him. I took me over 1/2 the book to care for Edward, but he did redeem himself with Star. I don't know if it was my dislike for Edward in the beginning, or what but I never felt a connection for the character's in this book as I did in Wildfire. But, the book as of now is free, so I would recommend it, but just be aware, if you read Wildfire, this one is about Edward.. There is a love scene, mild by most romance standards, but descriptive none the less. (ljb)

Five Stars for Lady Star!!!! Star Berkeley and her brother Vern are in dire straights and about to lose their estate. Vern has gotten into trouble with the wrong people and they are being blackmailed by thieves. They desperately try their hardest not to lose their home. Star is admired by her neighbor Jules Stamford hut when he brings his friend Sir Edward to his home for a visit, all.best are off. Sir Edward doesn't think Star is well suited for Jules. This is mostly because he want her all to himself.  I love the chemistry between the hero and heroine. This book had a variety of interesting aspects to it. It had a wonderful storyline and it keeps you captivated right from the beginning. Claudy Conn is one of my go to authors and I am never disappointed with any of her work. Her historical novels are nothing short of magical. I wish I could have given this book more than five stars. All Claudy Conn's books are a must read

Yet  another fantastic  book from author Claudy Conn. This is a very sweet and a little spicy ¿ Historical Romance.  The characters are strong and the book is well written.  Lady Star Berkley is not your typical woman. She doesn’t mind dressing in clothing made for a man and getting dirty cleaning up the stables. Her family is on the verge of ruin and her brother has taken Ill. Star is doing all she can to keep things afloat.  Then we have Sir Edward who is getting over his broken heart from Lady Bess. He can not understand why a woman would want to do things that Star has been doing but eventually he is smitten.  Will Lady Star accept his romantic ways? Well grab your copy now ¿  If you are a Historical Romance lover I highly recommend this book.

Lady Star Berkeley and her brother, Vern, are in dire straits and are in trouble of losing their Estate because of their deceased fathers gambling debts. Vern has made an alliance with smugglers to make some money to help them out of their debt. Sir Edward Danton has lost his love - or so he thinks - and travels to Rye where he meets his friend Jules Stamford. Jules invites Sir Edward to stay with him for a while. Jules happens to be enamored of Lady Star and he introduces Sir Edward to her. After meeting her a few times, Sir Edward realizes he's quite attracted to Lady Star and feels she won't do for Jules' political career, especially since he wants her for himself. Add to this mix we have Lady Georgina Madison who is Lady Star's staunch friend and Miles who is Vern's staunch friend. Will things work out for Lady Star and Vern with saving their Estate, who are the characters going to partner with? We have so many loveable characters, intrigue, twists and turns and hot romance! As her usual style, Claudy Conn pulls you into the story from the beginning of the story until the end. I haven't been disappointed with any of Claudy Conn's books yet. This is a lovely romp of a story and I so enjoyed it. I highly recommend it. (BO)

Lady Star is the kind of woman we all want to be like she has passion and is smart , sometime the heroines are not the smartest , not so in this book. The story line is done in a way that flows so you want to stop reading but can not you have to see WHAT is next. Lady Star is with her brother Vern who has made a mess and is in debt due to their fathers doings when he was alive . There are other characters that are secondary characters other that are part of this story, BUT it a story in it self The . Enter Sir Edward , he is healing from a love loss he meets up with Jules who also is licking his romantic wounds. Jules has plans for our Lady Star, Sir Edward is surprised that while trying to keep Jules from Star he wants her himself . So the story unfolds. It sounds simple yes but this author has as usual written a story that you would not think would be engrossing from the storyline, BUT she has done it again. This is a must read and I give 5 stars.

In true Claudy Conn fashion this historical romance did not disappoint and kept me thoroughly entertained. I really enjoyed getting to see Sir Edward come into his own and see another side of his story which was initially told in Wildfire Kiss, book one in this series. If you love historical romances you will absolutely love this book and the story that unfolds will keep you wanting more. :)

I really love Claudy’s historical books, she has a knack for making me feel like I’m in the era and I really enjoy that. The dialogue between Star and Sir Edward is such a delight and quite amusing. I love the way they connect. I also loved how Star was so willing to help her brother, even though he asked her to do something very dangerous and frightening right at the beginning! It showed right away how much she cared for him. Oh and of course the romance was every bit as wonderful as all of Claudy’s romances are. Claudy paints a remarkable picture with her words and I will continue to read all of her books! If you’re looking for a good historical, I highly recommend Lady Star as well as Claudy’s other titles in the genre!

Another heartwarming romance from Claudy. She let’s you travel with her to another place and you feel you are in the moment. This journey with Lady Star and Sir Edward was exciting. The era also has me wanting to live at that time. I love the whole image of life and her characters bring the story to a page turning race. You want to read on and on and never stop. Lady Star is caring for her ill brother Vern, he has put them in a bad spot and needs her help. Lady Star must do something no Lady should do, but to help her brother and herself she does just what is needed. When she takes on this mission she never expected to fall in Love…. Thank you Claudy for another keeper !!!
