Song for a Lady: A Regency Romance by Jacqueline Diamond

A Regency Cinderella fights back!

Unfairly blamed for her mother's sins, Lady Deborah Martin can't please her father and offends the handsome Lord Foxborough. Treated as little more than a servant, this spirited young woman, gifted with a lovely singing voice, plans a life on the stage, and if that stirs trouble, the men had best watch out!

"Clear and crisp ... Elevated above the ordinary by the inclusion of some delightful dialogue and some very funny scenes."--Library Journal

Full of period colour and scheming young women trying to secure the same prized lord for themselves. I enjoyed the obstacle course that the two sisters navigated to engage their men and the karmic kick back their sister and cousine received for their scheming plots.

My first take on this book is that it is another “Cinderella” story. That does not mean, however, that I did not thoroughly enjoy the read. This is the fourth of Jacque’s books that I have read. Author’s who write series books tend, naturally, to have similar elements that can be found in each of their books. I’ve run into series of books by other authors who tell nothing but the same story with different characters. This book, however, I feel is the most different from the other three books that I have read. While there are many of the same elements: “One of the daughters is 'bad ton', daughter becomes good ton, lots of mis-understandings with greatly delayed explanation and insight, a nasty 'other woman' out to smear the daughter's reputation, girls both get boys, blah, blah,” as quoted by C. Mattoon from a review on Amazon. These elements are not what is important so much as the story and how the story is told. Yes, all of Jacque’s books have these elements… However, as is different in this story it is not love that seems so impossibly out of reach as it is the means by which the heroine is to reach that love, the obstacles that she must overcome. Different from the first three, the love between the heroine and the hero is never doubted. There is more action and more bravery in this story then in the others where scandal and disgrace are the primary modes of conflict. In this story, Jacque takes the conflict one step further to a desperate chase and daring rescue with injurious consequences. Yet justice leads to a happy ending, and as much as I LOVE a happy ending, this is much more like a Brothers Grimm fairy tale then the fluffy “happily ever after” of Disney.

"Ugly" half sister hated by father and a sister. Sent as a companion, in disgrace. Silly but amusing characters. Will try some others of authors book.
