1.0 out of 5 starsNot Anita's finest
Reviewed in the United States on July 1, 2015
Usually I love Anita Mills writing. Not sure what happened with this book. The "heroine" was totally stupid and I really disliked her. The ending was rather up in the air--would our hero inherit the money, or---? The entire story was lame and I could not believe one of my favorite authors actually wrote this book. My advice is to skip this book and save your money,
Thoroughly enjoyed this one. It has everything I like in a novel: romance, adventure, mix ups and a HEA. The characters are very likable an behave according to the mores of the time. Highly recommend it.
A very lovely Regency romp involving a rather hilarious mix-up of couple, several abductions, and two devilishly delicious rakes just aching for reformation. The writing is flawless, the dialogue effortless, and the plot devices exceedingly diverting. I enjoyed both heroines although I would have liked a little more clarification on their shared past, as well as the past of Tony' s wife. I almost feel like this book might be part of a series. The two heroes were yummy, although once Marcus strolled on to the scene Patrick rather came across as crass. I felt a little unsettled regarding the inheritance clause. I suppose it got dissolved but that seemed like a rather weak ending. It would have been more just if Patrick had won it and then agreed to dole out settlements or something. But I guess that would not have been romantic enough. Still, I thought it remained a loose end. All in all, a fantastic read. Very highly recommended for all Regency Romance lovers.
I liked this book very much. It was entertaining and light hearted and not to be taken too seriously. Our h is the neglected companion of one of the secondary characters, Juliana. Juliana's cousin is the H and he has a terrible reputation but mostly it is undeserved. The H needs to get married and have an heir within one year so that he can get his inheritance. Juliana suggests her companion but the h wants to marry for love. The H initially wants to marry her so he can get his inheritance but after the h refuses, a friend of the H kidnaps her so that she would be forced to marry the H. The whole thing backfires and the story gets quite involved but as I said it's entertaining and I can definitely recommend it.
The Viscount has to marry a respectable young lady and produce an heir to come into his inheritance. The lady has no money but won't marry without love. Well meaning friends intervene and delightful confusion reigns as everyone looks like they may end up with the wrong person. The story is complex and well done. The characters are inviting. The book was written in the days when a good plot was required in the absence of reams of explicit sex. A pleasant read.
I would have thrown it across the room at the end of Chapter 18. When the heroine agrees to marry a man she doesn't love because she's too timid to speak up. The plot is just too contrived for me. One request to Amazon: would it be too hard to show the original publication date in the description, in addition to the date it was released on Kindle? This book is from the early 90s, and Regencies were pretty insipid in those days.
2.0 out of 5 starsIs imitation the sincerest form of flattery? Not in this novel.

The plot of Devil's Match is a poor relation of Devil's Cub written by the incomparable Georgette Heyer but without the style, wit or warmth. I normally like this author's books but this plot was a pretty poor version. The hero and heroine in this book are not a patch on the originals. Suggest you read that version and skip this one.

I read Dangerous recently and loved it but I didn't warm to this one as much. It followed the line of a 'comedy of errors' and I'm not that keen on that premise, I find myself getting annoyed. I didn't think it was as well written either, so I took one star off for that and another, which you might think unfair, for not particularly liking the way it was written.
Anita Mills può scrivere un divertentissimo romance come The Rogue'Return, una storia intrigante come The Duke's Double, ma, evidentemente, anche un pasticcio ignobile come questo libro. Non so davvero se leggerla ancora
