The Dangerous Debutante by Kasey Michaels

A debutante deceived…is dangerous indeed!

What makes a lady? Morgan Becket wouldn't know. The scandalous debutante is being sent off to London to have her first Season in hopes a gentleman will finally tame her. Yet shortly into her journey she meets Ethan Tanner, Earl of Aylesford—of noble blood, but surely too wild, too unprincipled, too unsuited for Morgan. Or perhaps too well suited.

Since Morgan has always wanted anything everyone else says she can't have, Ethan is perfect for her. But upon arriving at Morgan's Romney Marsh home where Ethan wants to ask for her hand—he's already had her body—she realizes her suitor may have an ulterior motive for making her his wife. And a deceived debutante is a dangerous debutante…Lord Aylesford, beware!

The second Beckets’ of Romney Marsh is a wonderful Regency romance starring a wild female daredevil and the Earl who matches her zaniness (after all it is in his blood)! His mother Lady Tanner is fabulous and I would so love to see her get a story of her own. I can’t think of a couple more suited and more entertaining than Morgan and Ethan. Morgan is stunningly beautiful, brave, strong-willed and free spirited. At the same time she often she can be vulnerable and innocent. Ethan's delectable good looks along with his wit and charm make him the perfect match for Morgan. These two major characters, both wonderfully drawn, are supported by a cast of characters that are as real and lifelike as everyone else. Kasey Michaels is two for two so far in what is turning out to be an intriguing, well written series.

In 1812 her adopted father Captain Ainsley Beckett sends his oldest daughter Morgan from their home in Romney Marsh to London to have a season sponsored by his oldest adopted son Chance and the lad¿s wife Julia (see A GENTLEMAN BY ANY OTHER NAME) though he fears for the Ton when the outrageous high spirited woman takes the city. On the trek, Morgan decides she needs to ride her horse over the objection of her servant. This break from societal rules enables her to meet an Earl, Ethan Tanner of Tanner¿s Roost.------------------------- Attracted to her beauty, intelligence and élan, Ethan persuades her to come to his estate so that she can prepare properly for her arrival in London with him as her escort. In fact he wants her to meet his eccentric mom who runs off any eligible female with her zany behavior. Instead Morgan and Lady Tanner hit it off as kindred sisters. As they make love and fall in love, Ethan wants to marry Morgan, but she refuses as she feels she is beneath his position in society as he an Earl and she an adopted street urchin.------------- The second Becketts of Romney Marsh is a wonderful Regency romance starring a wild female daredevil and the Earl who matches her zaniness (after all it is in his blood). The story line focuses on their relationship as everyone including Ethan wants Morgan married to him that is everyone except her. She assumes that you can take the girl out of the street, but you can¿t take the street out of the girl. The tale focuses on Ethan¿s efforts to convince her that he does not care using his eccentric mom as his proof. Kasey Michaels is two for two so far in what is proving to be an amusing well written historical series.--------- Harriet Klausner

I enjoyed this novel because Ethan was honest right from the beginning about his feelings and love for Morgan. A refreshing change to most regency romances. I was surprised that Ms. Michaels kept my interest throughout by the way she unraveled Morgan's high-spirited personality. It was a different concept and I am disappointed that other readers didn't seem to understand it.

I wouldn't sit here and write this review if i hadn't taken one for the team and read this book to completion.. it was hard to stay focused, on a story that was DRAGGED ALONG... But nonetheless, I finished the book and threw it across the bed, thoroughly disappoint at the entire day I could of devoted to a more appealing book. The characters had some depth to them, and the storyline even piqued my interest for a second, but the bare honest truth is that it is OVER-written and CONTRIVED. A novel wouldn't be a novel without vivid imagery to make the reader not only connect with the characters but the setting as well, but there is such a thing called 'OVER-KILL'. Miss Michaels was reaching for something I couldn't quiet grasp. Not that the language was difficult or the words to 'BIG', but the way they steamed together just didn't do it for me. I wanted to get into this book so badly.. a great concept and the character that were unique provided the ingredients to an awesome story, but when they came together, they must of been left on the stove a bit too long because it came out all wrong. Picture the story of a premisquious young miss who lives with her family in isolation from the TON with the intentions of laying low. Their country way of life bores her and it is time she has a proper season in London. Her father sends her to stay with her recently married brother and sister-in-law, but on the way there she encounters a devilishly hansom Earl who (taken aback by her beauty) offers to escort her the rest of the way to London. The earl, with sufficient bones in his closet, works for the war offices and unbeknownst to him at the time, is becoming smitten with his next mission. The young Miss and her family's dark secrets come to pass and true, stabilizing love has to put up a fight to remain effervescent....sounds like a smashing hit.. too bad it just didnt translate well in Kasey Michaels version... pity.. see if you can brave the storm of boredum and get to the esscences of this surprisingly complex book. Something tells me this book would be a favorite of mine if only is was written a bit better.... P.S. The end is SOOO anti-climatic!!! a perfect cruddy way to end it off.... about the book I recommended below: This book has a somewhat similar plot lines (war office, and falling inlove with the prey so-to-say) like 'Dangerous Debutante' ,but is written better. The story flows and gives you something to 'AWWW' about. Not that i am trying to dismiss michaels, but I can't beat around the bush when I describe what her writing was like (in my opinion). I did connect somewhat with the characters and the plot was fabolous, which says something to her imagination.. but execution is everything..its one thing to have a great vision, its another to make others see it =) ENJOY

I have been a fan of this author for years but not so much anymore: she used to write stories with a little sex; now she writes about sex with a little story. Most of her more recent books seem to start the "panting" on about the 3rd page. I wish she would go back to her old style of writing. It was wonderful, full of humour and terrific characters. Oh well, I guess sex sells.
