Overview

Gypsy Lover by Connie Mason

"You are nothing but a gypsy!" So the haughty Lord Lonsdale accused Dante at the reading of his grandfather's will. To the astonishment of the ton, the late marquis had disinherited the petulant lord, leaving his vast estate to the darkly handsome Romany horse trader. Acres of land, fabulous wealth, rich manor houses - all these were his for the taking, provided Dante would also take the bride his grandfather had specified.

�You stole a kiss from me the first time we met.� So claimed Lady Esme Harcourt. The arrogant gypsy had swept her into his arms at a country fair, awakening both her desire and her disdain. Though her hand might be promised to the new Marquis of Alston, she swore she would never agree to wed a man whose birth put her so far beneath her. But no matter how she protested against Dante as her husband, her heart had already accepted the free-spirited Rom as her wild � Gypsy Lover.

This book was great I loved the adventure and the drama. I liked how it ended happy and not dramatic.

In the beginning, Esme does refer to Dante as a Gypsy, but if you read her thoughts very early on, she actually has feelings for him. The name calling then comes from Dante putting words in her mouth and due to lack of communication she does not correct him. I enjoyed this Connie Mason love story. Her books start out right away. You don't have to work your brain to follow the story plot. Steamy!

CAN'T SAY A WHOLE LOT GOOD ABOUT THIS BOOK FROM MS. MASON. ESME SPENDS NEARLY THE ENTIRE BOOK CALLING DANTE A FILTHY GYPSY UNLESS SHE'S CALLING HIM A DIRTY-THIEVING GYPSY. ALL AT THE SAME TIME SHE IS IN RAPTURE OF HIS LOVEMAKING-COURSE SHE WAITS UNTIL HE IS FINISHED MAKING LOVE TO HER. CAN'T FAULT THE AUTHOR--WITH SO MANY-MANY GOOD BOOKS WRITTEN BY HER--THERE WILL BE A STINKER SNEAKING IN EVERY NOW AND THEN.

In 1785 England, a gypsy woman dies in childbirth, but the boy Dante, sired by an aristocrat, survives. His grandfather the Marquis of Alston hides the birth of Dante from his son, Alex, the lad¿s biological father and pays the kid¿s maternal grandparents to raise him................. Lord Alston regrets his decision of three decades ago; his son died ten years ago with no other heir and his nephew Calvin is a gambling wastrel. Alston knows that if Calvin becomes Marquis, the proud name will quickly dissolve into bankruptcy. A desperate Alston modifies his will recognizing Dante as heir with the stipulation that he marry Lady Esme Harcourt within six months of gaining the title................... Dante wants nothing to do with his paternal grandfather and his title. However, when someone kills Lord Alston, Dante accepts this as a blood debt; he needs the title to walk in the exclusive circles he must step into to complete his quest of bringing the killer to Romany justice. Dante accepts the rider that Lady Esme be his wife especially since he has previously tasted her lips though he loathes that she is a purebred aristocrat; in turns Esme scorns gypsies................... This solid Georgian amateur sleuth romance is loaded with action but it is the lead couple who makes the tale so much fun to read. Dante and Esme may love each other, but each is loaded down with the heavy chains of prejudice. He detests the upper crust while she disdains the Romany. As they fall in love, Dante¿s investigation leans towards Calvin as the prime suspect but he has new concerns when he places his beloved Esme in danger. Fans will enjoy Connie Mason¿s delightful landlubber historical tale.................. Harriet Klausner

In Bedfordshire, England, 1785, a dying gypsy woman gave birth to Lord Alex' illegitimate son and named him Dante. Alex never knew about Dante, because his own father (the Marquis of Alston a.k.a. Lord Alston) kept the information from him. Lord Alston had Dante's Romany grandparents, Sandor and Carlotta, raise the child. Lord Alston gave them gold to help care for Dante and insisted that Dante be sent to Cambridge at age sixteen. ............................................. Now, in 1813, Lord Alston wishes he had spent more time with his grandson, no matter Dante's heritage. Lord Alex had died ten years before with no children. Thus Lord Alston's nephew, Calvin, is next in line for the title. But Lord Alston did not trust Lord Calvin with the family fortune. Calvin gambled too often and spent money he did not have. Therefore, Lord Alston changes his will and makes Dante his heir. In a codicil of the will, Lord Alston demands that Dante wed Lady Esme Harcourt within six months of becoming the new Marquis of Alston. ............................................. As Dante steals a kiss from the beautiful lady at a country fair, he has no idea that her name is Lady Esme or that he is to meet her again in the near future. Dante intended to deny the title, wealth, and estate that his English grandfather is pushing on him. However, when Lord Alston is murdered and set up to look like suicide, Dante cannot let the murder of his kin go unpunished. He will accept the title and use everything in his power to locate the killer. As for Lady Esme, no matter how prejudiced she may be toward gypsies, she WILL become his wife. After all, she has already proven that she is not immune to his charms. .................................................................... ...................... **** This story is filled with obstacles for the main characters to overcome, as well as danger, suspense, mystery, and romance. Author Connie Mason does an excellent job of making the characters come alive. Marvelous! ****
