Overview

Miss Beryl Wentworth is silently, desperately in love with her childhood friend, Finian Fitzwilliam, who unfortunately still treats her as if willing to shove her into the nearest mud puddle. It’s infuriating now that she at least has grown up, leading to uproarious and horribly public arguments between them, and it seems he’ll never treat her as a woman grown, never look at her that way… until a quite charming rake asks her for the first two dances at the Hanover Square assembly room. Dare she hope that His Grace, Ernst Anton Oldenburg, the Duke of Cumberland (and some say a foreign prince) is serious, even if Fitz is not?
Fitz can’t believe it. The man’s a rake, he ruined Anne Kirkhoven only weeks ago, and now Beryl agrees to dance with the villain? Strong-willed she might be, but there must be something Fitz can do to extricate her from that ducal clutch. Even if it means interrupting them behind the shrubbery in Hyde Park.
How can the Scoundrel of Mayfair bring two feuding hearts together without setting off the final argument that tears them apart forever?

I thought the concept of the Duke was really smart, but it wasn't executed well. His point of view being thrown in was way too confusing to the story, especially at the end where it had nothing to do with the main plot. The first half of the book was very confusing as a result and at some points I felt that the writing had just been spewed forth and not really edited down. It was alright, but I'm not sure I'd pay the $0.99 again for it.

Jane Austen fans will find "Mischief on Albemarle" an absolute treat, as Vivian Roycroft takes us back to a time of Lords and Ladies in Regency England in this romantic tale. Her father wishes for Beryl to marry, and with her being in love with Fitz since their childhood, one would think this was easy--if he would just grow up already. When a Duke enters the picture and effortlessly sweeps her off of her feet, it just might be the eye-opener Fitz needs, if he's not already too late. Roycroft's writing style pulls you in and keeps you there, with vibrant and fun characters who come to life off of the page. "Mischief on Albemarle" is a quick, highly-enjoyable romantic read to cuddle up to on a sunny afternoon.

There is not very much going on that is original in this story. If you have something else to read, read it. This is okay if you're waiting in a long line or on a long trip. But, if you aren't taking an e-reader, don't waste space in your luggage for a paper version. There are a lot of other stories far more interesting to read. I've tried to read stories a lot worse than this one. If you read the first chapter and the last one, you know the journey.
