Again, My Lord: A Twist Series Novel by Katharine Ashe

The eagerly awaited next installment of the Twist Series that began with 2015 RITA® Award Finalist My Lady, My Lord. The Goddess of love is trapped in a statue in Regency England, and one altar shy family is about to discover just how dedicated Aphrodite is to her work...

Historical romance... with a twist.

Six years ago, Tacitus Everard, the Marquess of Dare, made the worst mistake of his life: courting vibrant, sparklingly beautiful Lady Calista Chance--until she broke his heart.

Six years ago, Calista Holland made the biggest misstep of her life: begging handsome, wealthy Lord Dare to help her run away from home--then marrying someone else.

Now, trapped by disaster in a country inn, Calista has one day to convince the marquess she's worth a second chance, and Dare has one goal, to steer clear of déjà vu. But when the day takes an unimaginable twist, what will it take to end up in each other's arms?

This author rocks historical romance." Kathy Altman for USA Today (about I Loved a Rogue)

Love, love, loved it. I was not only enamored of the characters (as I always am with Katharine Ashe novels), but the plot, too. It's in the Twist series, so I won't reveal the twist, but you'll love it. It's not your typical Regency.

So unique

I was looking forward to reading “Again, My Lord” by Katharine Ashe, Book #2 in her Twist Series Novel. We met the statue Aphrodite in Book#1 where readers learned of her matchmaking powers, but Book#2 seemed like she would have her work cut out for her. Because the heroine, Calista Holland is already married. *gasp* Six years ago, Tacitus Everard, the Marquess of Dare courted the Calista for a month yet when she asked him to run away with her to London, he left thinking she was on her wait to meet another man. Present day, Calista and Tacitus are stranded at an inn during a horrible rain storm. What happens is a repeat of the same day until…I really wasn’t quite sure. I was expecting that last pinch point to be more conclusive, but I never felt it. And I think it was because “Again, My Lord” followed the plot from Groundhog’s Day too much. Let’s look at the characters Ashe included: 1) annoying classmate – Harriet 2) sick elderly person 3) learning new hobbies 4) Inn keeper 5) Repeating and annoying clock 6) Instead of the watery pot hole, Calista gets coffee spilled on her everyday – there was just so much going on that the romance between Calista and Tacitus ceased to become the focus of the story. And what I wanted to read was a romance, a developing/blossoming relationship between two people and I didn’t get that. It started out that way and ended up being a story of Calista cast in the role of Bill Murray. There were also so many other characters when the focus should have been on these two people fighting against falling in love a second time. There was also some disjointed prose scattered throughout the story that made me pause while I was reading and I had to re-read to understand what was going on. I was disappointed in this fan fiction. What this story taught me was to carefully consider each character in my story. What is the purpose for this secondary character? Are they a sounding board, contrast, framework for the hero/heroine?

Wonderful! This is the second book in Katharine Ashe's Twist series. The books in this series are historical romance but with a take on some comedic movies. This is Calista Holland and Tacitus (aka the Marquess of Dare) Everard's story. It takes place before the first book about her brother Ian (My Lady, My Lord). Their mother has a beautiful smallish statue of Aphrodite. Aphrodite loves to meddle with couples who need to realize they should be together. Calista and Tacitus met when she was 18. He is very proper and she liked to tease him. But her father had other plans. He forced her to wed a man of his choosing to whom he owed a great deal of money. Six years later, they meet at an inn while traveling. And the rest is a very good story you'll have to read. I really don't like writing plot spoilers.

Tacitus Everard, the Marquess of Dare–”I am Dare”–and Lady Calista Chance had a grave misunderstanding six years prior when suddenly, during his determined one month courtship, she asked him to help her run away. His refusal determined their fates; he became a confirmed bachelor while she entered into an abusive marriage. Calista is a woman in great emotional pain but this story is about her gradual realization of the pain of others. The name Calista is from the Greek myth, meaning “most beautiful.” Though it sounds modern, for this story and series, which contains some paranormal elements, it is appropriately unique and flirty. The story is loosely based on the Bill Murray film, Groundhog Day, and we witness Calista repeating the same day over and over. Indeed, at times, the repetition wears on the reader as much as it does on Calista. Her discomfort and confusion turns into brief giddiness, which then turns into despair and, eventually, resignation. It is only when she actively helps others and emerges from her own misery that the curse is finally broken. Tacitus is a lonely, awkward, but devastatingly handsome peer. He does not know how to comport himself around women which makes for some humorous moments and, when he meets Calista, he soon falls in love. But her flirtatious manner, bordering sometimes on rude, disarms him and turns him off at the very moment she needs him most. When Tacitus meets Calista again, at a small inn in the village of Swinly, they have a second chance. But she has changed into a subdued and passive woman, a far cry from the sassy and beautiful young lady he knew six years ago. But he doesn’t know her pain and anxiety. Over the days (really, weeks, to Calista), all is slowly revealed. Years ago he had seen in her eyes determination, deep affection, and bright, reckless joy. He had wanted to touch that, to taste it, to be part of it. Katharine Ashe writes with a passion and richness that infuses nearly every sentence and she is a pleasure to read. I like the way she fits the pieces of the story together in a way that is at once charming and romantic. I can’t say anymore without giving away the story. However, Again, My Lord doesn’t really feel like a true romance to me. Like Austen’s Mansfield Park, it is more of a novel of manners. The colorful and interesting secondary characters are as prominent as the romance; their love story more often simmers in the background. …he tried with every ounce of his imagination to devise a justification for continuing with her. Nothing occurred to him that did not shout roguish scoundrel. Calista is the brother of Ian, the hero of My Lady, My Lord, though the events here seem to take place before that book. Ian is also a former schoolmate of Tacitus’ and Peyton, his friend. While I enjoyed this, it is definitely not as romantic as My Lady, My Lord, the first book in the Twist series. Read this for the great writing and enjoyable story, but if you’re looking for burning, searing passion, the first book wins, hands down.

WOW! Just wow! Katharine Ashe is an amazing author and I look forward to everthing she writes. But this story has to be my favorite by far. I loved the character development of Calista and Tacitus and was cheering them on through their difficult path towards each other. Just do yourself a favor and read this book. If you don't find yourself smiling at the end while looking at your own life a little differently, then you've missed the message. Thank you again Katharine, your stories brighten my days.

This is book 2 in the Twist series. Six years ago, Tacitus Everard, the Marquess of Dare spent a month courting Lady Calista Chance. But she broke his heart and soon married another. When he is stranded at an inn because of weather, he runs into her all these years later. Calista can hardly believe that she has run into Tacitus again. After all these years, he still makes her heart beat faster just by looking at him. When she wakes up to find that she is repeating her day again, she does her best to first ignore him but then realizes that she wants him in her life. Is she destined to repeat this day for the rest of her life or can her choices break the "spell" that is setting her life on repeat? This story is similar to the Groundhog's Day movie where one day just keeps repeating itself over and over again. We see Calista grow as a person with each repeated day as she tries to determine what she needs to do to make the next day actually come. Is was a nice twist on the Groundhog's Day story! Thanks go out to Billet-Doux Books for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.

AGAIN, MY LORD is the second book in Katharine Ashe’s brilliant and innovative A Twist series, and as the first instalment, it is a total delight! Calista Holland is bringing back the statue of Aphrodite her mother loves so much, and at the same time she will pick up her beloved son; her mother and sister are taking good care of him while she’s away, and it’s all that counts. However, on her way to her back, she stops at an inn because the rain that had been falling is threatening to flood everything. And whom should she see but the man who refused to help her 6 years before: Tacitus Everhard, Marquess of Dare. Tacitus has forever been in love with Calista, who left him high and dry to marry someone else. But there are so many things that both ignore about that fateful day. And even though they will be stuck for one very, very, very long day, Dare will remain somewhat confused, but Calista has a lot of time to think about what went wrong. I refuse to give out any spoilers, but AGAIN, MY LORD is brilliant! The Great Katharine spins an exceptional historical romance yarn, based on a popular movie, and again as was the case with My Lady, My Lord, there is magic involved. AGAIN, MY LORD is in turns extremely amusing, very romantic, and tugs at your heartstrings. Calista has had a very rough married life, while “I am Dare” has more or less coasted along. Tacitus is in fact quite taciturn, which I thought was a very clever name for him; he is a Peer through and through, because it’s what he does, especially since Calista left. But to his dismay, Calista has lost her sparkle and it pains him. But because of some very peculiar goings-on, they have no choice but try to be civil to each other and… I will say no more on the story, except that it is riveting and captivating to the very end! There are plot twists I never expected, character development is absolutely stellar, and what to say – again – about Katharine Ashe’s dazzling writing! The prose is luminous, elegant, her attention to proper vocabulary is legendary; the dialogues are delightful and natural, and the banter between Tacitus and Calista is unparalleled, because it goes through the whole range of emotions as the book progresses. I had loved the first book, and AGAIN, MY LORD is just as good! What a great series! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
