Table of Contents

Everyone in the ton was talking about the adventurous exploits of two notorious men - Mr. Felix Blackstone and Captain Brendan Kincaid. One, an anonymous writer; the other, a decorated captain, newly returned from India. Everyone, that is, except for Miss Henriette Purcell. She had enough problems of her own - namely, avoiding marriage to the distasteful Reverend Cecil Thwacker. Besides, she'd already met the arrogant captain - and so what if he made her heart race? She was much more interested in the identity of this mysterious writer…

Brendan Kincaid was disgusted. Mere days after he arrived home in England, he was informed that to inherit a title and lands, he must marry one of three women chosen and approved for him by his cousin. And to make matters worse, he seemed to have fallen for a whimsical wallflower who detested his very bones! But he had a funny feeling Miss Purcell was hiding some secrets of her own…. He simply needed to convince her that he was interested in her - and that their love wasn't just a game.

    Like the rest of the ton, Henriette Purcell had found her imagination captivated by two notorious rakes, Captain Brendan Kincaid and the mysterious, unseen author Felix Blackstone. Though Captain Kincaid was clearly dashing and debonair, Blackstone held more appeal really. Henriette was sure that as a fellow author, they had much in common, despite the way the arrogant Brendan was able to get under her skin. Brendan is on a deadline that demands he get past Henriette's passion for this mystery man and win her heart. He has agreed to play his late half brother's game, the rules of which state that he must in roughly a montth's time find three women to court and then settle on one to marry in order to gain his inheritance, title, and not be cut off from the family fortune. It will also keep his young nephew and by proxy, the boy's mother, away from the title and fortune. In all this, he must keep the game secret, despite the fact that his coming wealth would swing Henriette's father's decision about whom she is to wed in his favor, hopefully. To be honest, Brendan does not want Henriette to know, lest she believe his very real love to be a sham. ..................... This complex tale is marred by a couple of factors. First, Henriette's own novel is woven into the narrative, which is distracting. Secondly, scene transitions are not as clear as they could be. However, if you can overcome these quibbles, it is a very entertaining read.

    Intriguing Regency

    After several years in India, Captain Brendan Kincaid returns to England to obtain his inheritance. However, he quickly learns that his situation is not quite that simple as a stipulation for him to inherit is that he must marry one of three chosen eligible females. Miss Henrietta Purcell flees the countryside to avoid the amorous advances of Reverend Cecil Thacker, who arrogantly demands she marry him. In London she meets the handsome haughty captain, but though attracted to him, refuses to deal with another overly-opinioned self-aggrandizing hunk. Brendan wants to ignore the exasperating rustic, but cannot get her out of mind. He knows selecting her means overcoming her rejection of him, her infatuation of the writer Felix Blackstone, and forfeiting his inheritance no wonder he believes love is a lot of trouble. --- Henrietta is a refreshing lead protagonist as she flees the illicit advances of one male only to meet a hunk, but her desires reside with an author she never met. Brendan has his own dilemma as his inheritance leaves him no apparent wiggle room, but his heart (and his betraying body) says Henrietta is the woman for him in spite of her denial that he is for her. Though the story line becomes typical Regency, RADIANT is a fun tale due to the loving battle between the lead couple. --- Harriet Klausner
