The story is just drivel. The dialog is atrocious. Nearly all of the problems between the characters could be solved with a simple conversation. Patience is supposed to be strong and in charge, which she is from time to time. The rest of the time she's a complete idiot. This book was not worth the cost and I will not touch anything else from the author.

Set in Regency times, 20-year-old identical twins Patience and Prudence Waverly sail from Philadelphia to London to claim their inheritance when their last relative dies. As the elder, Patience is now a Baroness and legal guardian to her sister. A stalwart American, Patience wants nothing to do with her title. She wants to get the paperwork settled, sell the estate and head back to America. Prudence has other plans. This was an amusing story told successfully from several viewpoints as the sisters find their feet in England, so far from home, in such a very different way of life and unwittingly involved in several plots against them and a man named Purefoy, heir to the Sutherland Dukedom. Well, except for Prudence who knowingly plots selfish mayhem. Jeez, how many times did I want to smack that bratty twit? Many. However, she makes a good foil for Patience. This is the first book I¿ve read by Tamara Lejeune, but it won¿t be the last!

Regency Era comedy of errors tale of 20 year old American identical twins set loose in English society. The twins are visiting England in order to claim their inheritance from their deceased uncle. The eldest twin, Patience, will inherit the title of Baroness along with the property of the estate. Unfortunately she dislikes everything English including the titled aristocracy. Patience is the "good twin" who unerringly and unbelievably defends her sisters' nasty plots and plans. Prudence, the younger of the two, takes on the role of the narcissistic "evil twin". She is not the most likeable of characters but if she were, the story would not have been as much fun. The story has many interesting and unexpected twists and turns as the twins make their way in English society and vie for the rakish hero, Max Purefoy, a future duke. The book is well written and I enjoyed the double entendres that Max was so good at. A fun and unique take on the Regency Romance genre.

Patience and Prudence Waverly have arrived in London from Philadelphia. The twin sisters are here to inherit their uncle's estate. Well at least Patience is, being the oldest of the girls. Patience is level headed and smart. She is prepared for London life and is determined to not allow their ways to intrude on her American heart. Prudence is another story. She is the lighthearted, trusting sister. Her head is filled with grandeur and plans to fully enjoy the ton. Max Purfoy is the nephew and heir to the Duke of Sunderland, one of the highest posts in England. He is also carefree, arrogant, and enjoys the highlife to the fullest, that is until he meets Patience. One bad experience and he is bound to change his ways, well most of them anyways. The Pleasure of Bedding a Baroness is a whirlwind! The plot is non-stop with misunderstandings and intrigue. While it is written so you don't lose the gist of the storyline, it is in constant motion and changing continually. I'm very impressed with the maze of scheming and maneuvering that Ms. Lejeune has written. She kept it well paced and flowing. I do have to say at times it was too much though. The story was easy to follow along, even with everything going on, but it just seemed too much at times. I enjoyed Patience's headstrong ways and how Prudence almost seemed childish compared to her. There were times even I wanted to bend Prudence over my knee. It was fun to watch Max grow as a man. He improved so much during the story and I enjoyed their meeting when Patience discovers who he really is and how he decides that she is the woman for him. It was lovely and cringe worthy at the same time. I will also have to say there was little or no predictability with this book. Yes, you knew there was going to be some sort of problem or yet another hurdle, but all in all there were many surprises for me. Very nicely done! This is most definitely not your normal historical romance. So if you would like something a little bit different and a whole lot of fun then be sure to pick up The Pleasure of Bedding a Baroness today. It's a fast and furious romp into the uptight and always devious world of the London ton.

Twenty year old American twins Patience and Prudence Waverly inherit titles and estates in England. They leave Philadelphia for London to see what they own. Although Patience has become Lady Waverly, she has no patience for the aloof inanity of the Ton. Her title-less sister Prudence has even less prudence willing to battle the entrenched aristocracy who seek scandals of others to titter over. Intoxicated Lord Max Purefoy assaults Patience the baroness, but ignores her when he is sober though he likes her bodacious outspoken manner. Meanwhile Prudence on the other hand wants a title like her sister has. She decides she will marry debauched Max although Patience to her chagrin is attracted to the rogue. However, Prudence's marriage trap sends Max to her sister demanding she marry him. This screwball Regency romance is a jocular comedy of errors as the twins manage to land in one mess after another. Purposely using character-traits hyperbole, the tale lampoons the rigid public ethical code and its amoral private code of the Ton, but the satire loses some of its sting because the humor never fully takes enough serious relief moments. Still fans who enjoy a zany over the top tale of siblings, suitors, switches, and suspense will want to read Tamara Lejuene's comedy of romantic errors. Harriet Klausner
