Overview

Being nearsighted in Regency London isn’t a crime—but it feels like one to a lady in disgrace.

Meg Linley has good reason to feel cursed in the ballrooms of Regency England. Though a beauty, she can barely see and is forbidden to wear spectacles. When she accidentally cuts the prince’s friend Beau Brummell at a ball, the scandal sends her packing to the countryside.

Her faulty eyesight causes her to enter the wrong coach, which delivers her to the estate of handsome Lord Bryn. He mistakes her for the governess who was due to arrive from London and, preferring work over a life of isolation, she goes along with the erroneous impression. She can’t help adoring his orphaned niece and nephew, a mischievous pair who’ve driven off their previous governesses.

Deception has a way of turning the tables, however. When Meg begins falling in love with the handsome lord just as he’s about to become engaged to another woman, she can’t see a way out of her dilemma. But then, eyesight was never her strong point.

This lighthearted tale in the traditional Regency style—no sex, but plenty of romantic complications and a happy ending—was originally published by Harlequin Books.

    Not recommended

    I should have been warned when I saw this author also writes in the "The Billionaire's Twin Babies and Harem Slave" genre, but I figured: hey, everyone has to pay the bills, maybe this is what she does best! I am very sorry to say I was wrong. Inconsistent, one-dimensional characters, blatant historical inaccuracies, and just pure unattractive silliness stopped me before I could get even half-way through the book. It takes a lot to make me put something down, and unfortunately this book had what it takes. Beautiful, attractive cover; excellent premise (with a near-sighted heroine); complete failure to deliver.

    LOVED THIS BOOK!

    Finally! A Normal person, with faults and all! Most writers of this type of book make their characters so perfect that it is hard to believe. The characters in A Lady's Point Of View have faults, like all of the rest of us. The main character, I find to be an endearing young-ish woman who seems older than she is.
    I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a nice Cozy regency.

    Once again, Jacque has succeeded in capturing my attention and holding it to the end. She obviously loves this time period and has done extensive research! Having worn glasses all my life, and gone through the rebellious phase as a teenager of not wanting to wear them, and though my eyesight isn’t quite as bad a Lady Margaret Linley, I can relate to her position. Jacque tells an excellent tale of overcoming the struggle of simple misunderstandings and unintentional mistakes.

    This is an engaging sweet Regency featuring two sisters who each have their own love story. The elder sister's mother expects her to find a suitable husband to shore up the ladies finances; however, her misguided mother refuses to provide her with spectacles so that she can see. Banned for accidently cutting Beau Brummell, she then, through a series of mishaps, arrives at a peer's home where she is mistaken for the new governess the household was expecting. The younger sister, who is more beautiful and outspoken finds herself interested in a mature gentleman looking for a wife that is all that is seemly and proper, which she is not. Both sisters find love and heartache but each relationship rights itself in the end.
