Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Stunned when the lovely lady he is painting suddenly comes to life on the canvas and talks to him the Duke of Caswell can only conclude that his mind has finally snapped. But when his search for help sends him to Sir Osgood Bannister, the noted brain fever expert and doctor to the king, he ends up in the care of the charming, na ve Miss Lilyanne Bannister, and his life suddenly takes on a whole new dimension. A frustrated, artistic rake, a lively heroine who knows that life has more to offer than she has experienced, and a sassy, outspoken painting add zing to this traditional Regency, which features witty dialog, a clever plot, and a large helping of humor. Metzger is a popular writer of lively, humorous Regencies (Miss Westlake's Windfall) and lives in Long Island, NY Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Amusing Regency romance

    Duke Kennard ¿Kasey¿ Cartland prefers painting portraits to attending the acceptable and winked at events of the Ton though he has had mistresses. However, Kasey realizes that he needs a wife so he can have a male child because his current heir, his younger brother Junior, would gamble away the estate. His choice for a spouse is Lady Phillida Granleigh, who thinks his painting is childhood dabbling. <P>However, his latest portrait of a phantom lover talks to Kasey. Feeling he is losing his mind, Kasey visits Sir Osgood Bannister, known for helping the Ton with their ailments. There Kasey meets Osgood¿s niece Lilyanne, who believes that the artistic aristocrat has seen a vision that wants to assist him in reconciling his secret life with his patrician life. As Lilyanne and a reluctant Kasey begin to fall in love, the weird other dimensional matchmaker continues to bring them together. <P> THE PAINTED LADY is a well-written, amusing, but weird and different Regency romance. The story line is fun as the two lead characters struggle with their growing feelings for one another. However, what makes Barbara Metzger¿s novel distinct is the humorous lady in the portrait who serves as a matchmaking psychologist forcing the male protagonist to take a close look at his desires. <P>Harriet Klausner
