Overview

Catriona was no stranger to scandal � but she was an innocent in love �

Only a girl as captivating as Catriona Maclan could have overcome the scandal of her birth to shine as the most sought-after young lady of the London season.

Only a girl as daring as Catriona would have played with the fiery attentions of suitors as different as the eminently eligible, handsome and proper Lord Wareham and the notoriously worldly and wicked Marquis of Hampton.

Only a girl as stubborn as Catriona would have persisted in adoring the one man she could not have � the brilliant and iron-willed Duke of Burford, the guardian who saw her every fault and was so blind to all else �

The Deception �
What with the resurgence of interest in Jane Austen, Regency romances are enjoying a renewed popularity. Veteran novelist Wolf (best known for her prehistoric The Reindeer Hunters), turns in her own delightful addition, one that combines sensuality and passion with a spirited first-person narrative. When Kate Fitzgerald's horse-trader father is killed, she's placed with her malicious uncle, who spitefully maneuvers her into marriage with Adrian, Earl of Greystone. Waterloo hero Greystone accepts the unfortunate situation, but Kate falls deeply in love. Against the colorful racetrack background of the running of the Guineas at Newmarket, she schemes to entrap the aristocrat who murdered her father.

The Rebellious Ward is one of my favorite Joan Wolf books. No, her characters don't rip each other's cloths off and have explicit lusty encounters...but Wolf stills tells a satisfying story for those who enjoy a character and plot driven romance.

Ok, so I liked how the author made it seem like the possibilty that maybe Catriona didnt end up with Edmund - it was done in a clever way but i hate that we never really got inside his head, yes it was pretty obvious that after not seeing her for nearly two years and coming back to finding her all grown up that his feelings for her had suddenly changed but i wanted more. I wanted to see his confusion and then the realization that he's in love and hurt and doubt that she loved him too. Then the pain to think she was in love with someone else, then the relief that it was not so - all this and more, i wanted to see in order to connect to him. Also it is true the way the secondary characters were written was beautifully done which gets me to the point i am most displeased about - the Marquis Richard Hampton (Edmund's rival). I loved him and he truly loved Catriona and was left heartbroken and on top of that he didnt get his own book so that we can see that in the end he too was happy - we dont even get a mention in the epilogue of what happen to him - my heart ached and I was just not content with that and i dare say i like him far better than Edmund (After all i knew more about his thoughts/feelings than Edmund;s)! So though the book was good and i read it all in one sitting, i was left disappointed. For me it's all about the details and would have given it a higher rating had i known what happened to Lord Hampton...
