About the Author

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing. Since her first Regency romance was published in 1998, her stories have traveled the globe, with translations in many languages including Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese. She and her husband of more than 25 years reside in Washington State with their overactive Irish terrier. Regina Scott is a decent fencer; owns a historical costume collection that takes up over a third of her large closet; and is an active member of the Church of the Nazarene.

Cleopatra Renfield has come to London for her first season and she is none too happy about it. It seems that her season is not for her to enjoy, meet someone, and marry. No, she is to be sold to the highest bidder with the highest title or best-case scenario forced into an arranged marriage to a friend of the family.Leslie Petersborough, Marquis of Hastings, is also in a predicament since he is the friend of the family. Leslie is the Godson of Lady Agnes DeGuis, Godmother to Cleo. Lady Agnes insists that Leslie promised her at his father¿s funeral that at the end of his mourning he would marry and settle down. In addition, Lady Agnes will choose his wife. Six months has passed and he has come out of mourning, not wanting to marry any more than Cleo. He remembers Cleo as a child either on a horse riding astride or at a stream with a fishing rod.He is surprised at the young woman selected to be his wife. At first, the young couple has a difficult time since neither is as the other remembers many years ago. It does not take long for them to team-up in an effort to stop the marriage. Cleo is naïve and the more she tries the more trouble she causes. Between the two wicked stepsisters, a swearing parrot, a butler with covert talents, despicable suitors and the conniving couple, the ton is up in arms.One either hates Regency romances or loves them. I happen to be one of the latter. I love the droll phrasing: ¿I told you the Season is a battle.¿ or ¿You heard the lady, you dastard.¿ or , ¿I love you. You are impertinent, incorrigible, and completely irredeemable." or ¿Have you gone maggoty in the brain, my girl?¿ are just a few expressions to have on hand when needed. Ms. Scott has called up Characters from previous novels. Leslie first made an appearance in The Unflappable Miss Fairchild. Various others have shown up in a variety of earlier works. If one wants a fast moving read with more than a touch of humor then I recommend The Irredeemable Miss Renfield.

An incorrigible, frustrating, ridiculous pair for hero and heroine, yet somehow they're endearingly sweet and sympathetic. They're both perversely naive and obstinate, with an annoying disregard for consequences and an improbable escape of most. But I liked their relationship, loved Lady Agnes and her parrot and respected the relationship between Cleo (ridiculously named Cleopatra) and Eloise (who has a shockingly imprudent and foolish past and remenants). Sad to see the exit of Leslie's father.

The Irredeemable Miss Renfield by Regina Scott Uncommon Courtships Series Book Three Miss Cleopatra “Cleo” Renfield just wants her old life back, before her parents died. She would be happy with the simple life of living in the country; riding, hunting, and fishing. And she had come up with what she thought was the perfect plan to get those things. Her godmother wanted her to marry Leslie, Cleo's childhood friend. Instead she would get him to help her get her dream of being single in the country. Leslie Petersborough, now Lord Hastings, Marquis of Hastings wasn't ready to step into his father's shoes. Even if a year had passed since his father died. His godmother wanted to choose his wife. He didn't want a wife. He enjoyed having fun though—and the young girl he used to know in the country was taking him on a big adventure in London. I loved this story and I'm enjoying this series. Leslie is the good friend of Chas from book one; The Unflappable Miss Fairchild. This story also starts out at the same scene, from a different angle, as book two; The Incomparable Miss Compton. Looking forward to more stories from the characters that have been introduced in these first three stories.
