    I enjoyed this Regency romance more despite the closing circle of love in which every available male in the books is eventually a subject of his own novel in which he meets his unknown beloved and falls in love with her. This book introduces Amy de Lacy, a fabulously beautiful girl who is nobility fallen on hard times. This has made her a bit bitter, being the only practical member of a very impractical family. Amy decides give her family an opportunity for suitable finances by becoming a fortun [...]

    I have never read a Jo Beverley novel. I'm not sure this was her best work. This is a really short regency period historical romance. Published in 1991, this is a part of a series. However, it can be read as a stand alone.Amy's family has fallen on hard times. She is determined to marry a very wealthy man so her entire family can live in the style they once did, and her sisters will have dowries so they can also marry well.But, Amy meets Harry after getting caught up in a rain storm and seeks sh [...]

    Although I have read a lot of trad regencies lately and I have read quite a few of Beverley's novels in the past this is the first time I read her traditional regencies. They are part of a series and due to publishers rights these two that were reprinted now are the last two in the series. Although I am very curious about the secondary couples, that are presumable main characters in previous books, I found that these could be read as standalone so all is well.The first story was about a young be [...]

    I was really disappointed in this book. I don't think the author did a very good job accurately portraying this time period. There were so many times I just wanted to shake some sense into the main character. I wasn't happy about how the two love interests were so mean to each other and then all of a sudden end up together. The plot just didn't intrigued me like some of the other books in this series. I am glad it was a clean romance, something you have to be careful with from this author.

    Nice read. Short and sweet. Heroine thinks she has to sacrifice all for her family (not sure where the thoughts come from) and because she's the pretty one, she figures she has to marry pots of money so the others don't have to. How she arrives at these and other conclusions is never really explained, but it's an entertaining story nonetheless. I liked it a lot.

    This one is okay. I don't get why they got so mad at each other in that fight where she refuses him and he gets so insulted. She was honest, and he gets all offended and then insults her. I am glad it all worked out, but I didn't understand their problem.
