Overview

Livia Lacey came to the house she inherited in London's Cavendish Square with her two friends, Lady Cornelia Dagenham and Lady Aurelia Farnham, to experience the excitement of city life. With Cornelia now happily married, Livia and Aurelia are on their own. But dashing Prince Alex Prokov, a newcomer to London, seems enchanted by Liv the moment they meet. Disarmed by the prince's determined pursuit of her, his exuberant joy of living, and the desires he awakens in her, Liv agrees to marry him.

But while night is a time for passionate embraces, Liv discovers that her irresistible husband can be as autocratic as he is extravagantly generous. While Alex balks at Liv's independent ways, he refuses to explain his own comings and goings. When Liv learns one of Alex's secrets she only loves him more. But when she learns the other secret, will she feel wickedly betrayed?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Feather follows her well-crafted debut (A Wicked Gentleman) with this second installment of her Cavendish Square trilogy. Livia Lacey, the enchanting and witty daughter of a vicar, has been enjoying the 1771 social whirl while living in the London home she inherited from a distant relative, but is surprised when Prince Alex Prokov of Russia ardently pursues her. Feather hints at Alex's steely nature even as she paints him as the consummate gentleman, especially during the sizzling high note of a secluded picnic together, the courtship's sizzling high note. After their marriage, Livia discovers hidden facets of her husband's personality and begins to suspect his motives for their marriage and for his stay in England. Feather slowly reveals Livia to be a most formidable heroine. (Apr.)

    Bored to tears

    WORSE. BOOK. EVER. This book was so boring that a year later it still sits on my night stand halfway read. I've had several attempts to give it another read but the plot was so bland that I couldn't torture myself.

    Blah.....

    Thought to give a new author a shot instead of my usual's authors. This story was dragging on and on. The prince had no personality at all. Shame, I thought it would develop but it was just a bore.

    In Book 2 of the Cavendish Trilogy, it's Lady Livia Lacey's turn to find love, and it's an impetuous one.

    Wealthy, handsome and charming Russian prince, Alex Prokov, a newcomer to the London scene, overwhelms and charms Livia by his vigorous pursuit. His motives are hidden from her: he's the son of Sophia Lacey (!) and his father, Alexis Prokov; he's working undercover against the Czar who is aligned with Napoleon; he needs a wife to enable him to mix with the ton and learn things about the British vis a vis the war with his country; and the house on Cavendish Square actually belongs to him. Given Livia's belief in honesty and openness, Alex is headed for deep trouble. But they fall head over heels in love and marry quickly (which suits Alex's timetable), and he takes over the house on Cavendish Square (installs his butler and cook, but can't quite displace Sophia's staff and dogs). Livia is crushed when everything comes to light, but when Alex is kidnapped, beaten, and ready to be sent back to Russia, she comes to his rescue. Alex realizes that he won't make the same mistake his father did, so all ends well, if a bit abruptly.

    Feather is at the top of her game with this superb historical

    In 1807, although still feeling like a country mouse, Lady Livia Lacy enjoys the London social life now that her recently inherited house has been somewhat fixed and her best friend widow Nell Dagenheim has fallen in love (see A WICKED GENTLEMAN). Livia has one concern she cannot understand why sophisticated hunk half-English, half-Russian Prince Alexander Prokov pursues her as there are so many prettier and obviously more urbane women than a rustic mouse like her. When he proposes, she has doubts, but in love with her handsome suitor plus encouraged by Nell¿s relationship with Bonham, she accepts.---------------- Unsure of herself, Livia begins to question who is Prince Alexander, why her, and who are all these Russian aristocrats hanging around him. She also begins to think her beloved is hiding something from her that she assumes is his real reason for being in London and perhaps courting her. When she finds incriminating old letters that answer much of what she pondered, Livia is heartbroken and prepares to rusticate in loneliness. Alex is caught between his country and his beloved wife.------------- The second Cavendish Square Regency romance is a wonderful tale starring two likable protagonists caught between their love and international intrigue. The story line is fast-paced from the moment the pair meets and never slows down as passion battles with duty and loyalty to one¿s love wars with to one¿s nation. Jane Feather is at the top of her game with this superb historical.---------------- Harriet Klausner

    Just Like All the Others

    This book is just like every other mediocre romance that slips through the editorial cracks. Repetitious and inconsequential, the dialog leaves much to be desired. The language is mixed from different eras 'Ex. 'She refused to let anyone take the wheel in her life.' when such an expression would not have existed in the time period presented.' The plot could have been extraordinary if handled properly. Unfortunately, the mystery of the hero is lost in the mundaneness and un-likability of the main characters, who really have no redeeming, quirky, or endearing qualities. In short, independent, ahead-of-her-time woman impulsively marries a seemingly harsh man with secrets and, through unfailing perseverance, ferrets them out while preserving her 'unique' spirit. Also distracting is the writing itself. The language used by the characters is very much how an untutored American would imagine a Brit to speak, not how one actually would. (Lots of 'my love', 'I trust', 'Aye', 'our dear friend', etc. The only thing missing is that old standby, 'old chap'.)
