Publisher's Summary

Sir Clement Carnell was the most domineering and strait-laced of fathers, and his death has left his grown children, Louisa and Valentine, with a sense of release. While Valentine throws open the Devonshire estate of Pennacombe to their fashionable cousins from London, Louisa feels free at last to reject the man her father chose as her prospective husband - Pearce Lynley.

Soon the temptations of Regency London beckon - including Lady Harriet Eversholt, beautiful, scandalous, and very married, with whom Valentine becomes dangerously involved; while Louisa finds that freedom of choice is as daunting as it is exciting. Will the opportunity to indulge, at last, in a little folly lead to fulfilment - or disaster?

    Story
    "The story isn't as good as the narrator."

    I was looking for an heir to Georgette Heyer, this is sadly not it. Whilst Jude Morgan writes impeccably in the style of a Jane Austen novel, the characters did not really resonate with me, the plot seemed convoluted and rushed. I will give his writing another go, but mostly because Phyllida Nash reads them so enchantingly.

    Story
    "Regency Romance"

    A slow start, but stick with it. Jane Austen meets Georgette Heyer with style and wit. Excellently read too.

    Story
    "A joy to listen to!"

    I had known Phyllida Nash from her reading of one of my all time favourite Heyers- Cotillion. Again in this book she is an utter joy to listen to!
    I liked the book, thought it well written and refreshingly un-silly. I wish there were more of Jude Morgan's Rwgency available as audiobooks

    "Good Regency"

    This charming and well written story was a delight. Whilst the author has his own 'voice' comparisons to Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen are well deserved, unlike many who aspire to the ideal. Morgan has a light, sure touch with well constructed characters and an eye for detail. The narration was good. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
