Overview

Spirited Chelsea decided she’d sooner run away to London than return to her vain and selfish guardian, Aunt Augusta.
But in her wildest dreams, she never imagined her dear godmother would arrange a Season—or convince the ton’s most eligible bachelor to take her under his wing.

Lord Wainwright was a handsome rogue who was not interested in coy games and missish airs. He expected a country mouse with no polish, but instead he found a thoroughly engaging minx, and was oddly irritated by all the male attention she received.

Chelsea with her unspoiled eye saw beyond Wainwright’s pursuit of hedonism to the intriguing man underneath. But to her shock, it appeared his heart belonged to her horrid Aunt Augusta!

    This was is wonderful book about a young woman coming of age that was pretty much tossed away by her aunt and sent to a boarding school and forgot about. Chelsea is young innocent little minx, who says whatever is on her mind most of the time. Her best friend is Sam, I love the way they tease one another all the time. But who will she chose her best friend or the rogue of a man who was assigned to escort her around?

    I’m a huge fan of Regency Romance books and I have to say I loved Claudy Conn’s book. The plot flowed nicely together to make a wonderful story. Once I started Runaway Heart I had to finish it. I was done the same day I started. The characters are wonderful and well written. Chelsea is defiantly my favorite. She reminds me of my self sometimes as she does not have a filter and says things she should sometimes keep to herself Hehe. You really fall into the book and time period. I’d recommend you reading it if you haven’t already.

    Chelsea and Brett are the innocent and rake destined to be together. Sweet story but easy to predict. Story is 349 pages but this book goes up to 528 with excerpts from ogher books.

    Romantic Regency

    Orphaned and neglected by her hateful aunt, Chelsea Halloway is still in the care of Mrs. Farthing at her boarding school, even though she’s almost nineteen. When she’s told that she will be returning to Aunt Augusta, Chelsea quickly gets her good friend Sam Martin to help her escape so she can find and speak to her trustee, Lord Rupurt Lytton. Before she knows it Chelsea is the belle of London thanks to her godmother, Aunt Daisy and Lytton. Lord Bretton Wainwright wants nothing to do with marriage or debutante’s but when his dear aunt asks him to help escort Chelsea about so she will get noticed….he does. What the rogue did not expect was that the little minx of a girl will break down his walls and make him desire her more than he ever thought possible. Set in Regency times our characters rub shoulders with historical figures such as Beau Brummell and Lady Jersey as well as sightings of Byron and the Prince Regent. As always you have the villains you want to pummel and a heroine with a heart for strays….animal and human alike. An enjoyable story with action, jealousy and of course….romance. **Sexual situations

    Well thoughtout

    I really like this book the characters and storyline were realy well developed. When you first buy this book it says theres like 500 and some odd pages but it really isn't that long it skips pages, but unlike some other books it doesn't retract from the story any. The plot really drew me in and it was funny but romantic with some spice and suspence thrown in to make a really good read even if you haven't read this author or any books from this time period.

    Breathtaking Romance!!!! What a divine romantic story. This was my first regency romance and the first book I read by Claudy Conn. I loved the characters in this book. Chelsea is a very strong willed young woman. I love this because in this time period women are supposed to meek and let the man lead. I admire Chelsea who dares to be different. She is tenacious, sassy, and always speaks her mind. Her determination to seek what she wants gets her into some pretty uncomfortable predicaments. I also love the hero in the story Lord Brett Wainwright. Strong, rich, handsome, and an ego bigger than life. He is just as tenacious as Chelsea. He vows to never to be serious about one woman or get married. But all this changes after getting to know Chelsea. He finds her personality refreshing and sees it as a challenge he wants to conquer.

    Also what fascinated me was the descriptive storyline and that is was not predictable. There was mystery, action, and a beautiful yet funny love story. The details about the characters with what they were wearing and their surroundings made you see and feel like you were there in the book.

    Claudy delivers an eloquent and fascinating romance. This books really made me swoon. I will definitely be reading more regency romance and more of Caudy Conn's books.
