Lord Will and Her Grace Reviews
I liked this book even though it suffers from an excess of misc action and not enough character development. Many of the misc events don't add much except confusion. The hero's sad backstory is excruciatingly related by his 'dashing' older brother - which turns out to not be enough to have blighted his very existence but, at 35, still does!! About the heroine's background we learn very little. She has made many stupid blunders and gotten a tattered rep but not much is explained about this either and at 29 she's way too old to have no common sense or dignity, but lacks both. In the end she's just not very interesting. They do completely enthrall each other, tho. So there's that.BTW these are the last lines of the book. What does it mean?"I am certain, my love, patience and formality will never be known as the chief assets or —she leisurely tugged loose his neckcloth—"Lord Will and Her Grace."
The cover of the edition I read was a period plate drawing. I have found that the kind of regency fiction I enjoy has this kind of cover art more often. Alas, this book was more romance than regency. The plot was also a bit trite; the heroine feels deceived by the hero and drama ensues.
A quick read that seemed to be forced. There was a sadness to the relationship of this rake with behaviour caused by a pitiful past experience and Sophie who listened to wayward maid.
