What a fun regency romance. I am glad I gave these books a try. The four books in this series all contain kisses and thoughts about more intimate things to come, but they do not contain any detailed sex scenes. I found that to be very refreshing.

It is getting more difficult to find good old Regency romances these days. This one has ben re issued and I'm glad to have found it this time around. I especially liked the old matchmaker character Ophelia. She comes off as flaky at first but then you realize she's crazy like a fox! Im reading the second one in the series now. (I read the third one first, but it didnt spoil anyting. ) I hope the author keeps writing these. They're fun!
