Overview

First in the "Three Disgraces" Regency series

Lady Catherine Harcourt, the daughter of the Duke of Whitgrave, tries to escape her cold, repressive family by eloping with a rake. Foiled in her bid for independence, she is exiled to her aunts' cottage in a secluded but picturesque corner of the Lake District. There she meets Philip Woodmere, a gentleman farmer as kind as he is ruggedly attractive. She warms to his lively family, so different from her own, and is drawn to his quiet strength. At the same time, she fears that if her father caught wind of a romance, he would do anything to prevent such an unequal match, without caring whom he hurt.

Philip has been looking for a bride for practical reasons: to care for his numerous younger brothers and sisters. But he is moved by the mysterious lady who is living with his elderly neighbors under what he suspects is an assumed name. He senses passion beneath Catherine's elusive manner and sets out to earn her trust and love. But their chance for happiness is soon threatened by a secret from her past.

THE INCORRIGIBLE LADY CATHERINE, the first in Elena Greene's "Three Disgraces" series, was originally published as a Zebra Regency. Length: 207 pages. Sensuality: kisses, one sex scene.

Reviews:

"Regency readers will no doubt enjoy this sweetly tender tale which gives further good evidence of Elena Greene's blossoming talent."
-- Romantic Times

"Philip Woodmere makes a wonderful Beta hero, strong, tender, a lover of family and beauty, just the right sort of man to heal and complete a wounded heroine like Catherine. Ms. Greene paints Catherine with deep, vibrant colors to match her passionate nature, and if, sometimes, those colors weep, well so did this reader.

The story gives fresh new twists to traditional Regency plotlines and introduces a well-drawn cast of characters, three of whom cry out for their own tales to be told - the notorious Lord Verwood and Catherine's two school friends. The Incorrigible Lady Catherine follows Lord Langdon's Kiss and a novella in the His Blushing Bride anthology in this author's too-short list of works. Elena Greene is a talented writer to watch for when looking for a pleasurable, meaty Regency romance."
-- Jane Bowers, in Romance Reviews Today

"The Incorrigible Lady Catherine is a fun book, even if it is a bit of a guilty pleasure...Philip is a great beta hero, and it's simply impossible not to like him. He's honest about his feelings, his patience with Catherine is infinite, and he's willing to love her and believe the best of her no matter what. No jumping to conclusions for this guy, thank goodness. Somehow he pulls all of this off without coming across as a doormat. He makes a nice foil for Catherine, who is basically good hearted but makes some dumb choices...Since I liked these people, I was interested in what happened to them, and a lot happened. The book is fast-paced, with plenty of action and dialogue...
I would recommend The Incorrigible Lady Catherine for Regency fans who like a plot with some action and a hero who's one of the good guys."

    Okay

    This was my first book by this author. The story started well about the lady being sent to the country to live. It could have evolved into a great romance but did not. No intimatecy until p. 500 and that was nothing. The writing seem not to flow well.

    Young love

    Catherine is young and insecure, her emotionally abusive father has left her feeling unlovable. But of course true love triumps. A delightful story, about 500 pages.
