This is one of those books that you have to suffer through in order to finish. The female lead is one of 3 sisters who become Queens. Queen of Scotland. Queen of France and Queen of Spain. I hated them all before I was done. Especially Mary, Queen of Scotland. Not "Bloody Mary". This Mary is Henry the VIII" sister. Winey, entitled, "Bitch". My god how I hated her.. I enjoyed the book to begin with. But after I was done with it I simply could not get Alexa to stop reading it to me.

Kit, the marquis of Ashton, is in a sticky wicket. He married young and for love - how naïve. He discovered his mistake the very day of his wedding, but he is saddled now with a wife he's reluctant to trust. And however much evidence he gathers against faithless Jess, he can't seem to prove her guilt to the final judge - his foolish heart.

RITA finalist Julie Klassen has earned numerous awards for her popular historical romance novels. In The Maid of Fairbourne Hall, pampered Margaret Macy flees her home in London to avoid marrying a dishonorable man. Now, with no money and no place to stay, Margaret does the unthinkable: she takes a job as a housemaid in the home of two brothers - both of whom are former suitors. As an “invisible” observer, Margaret realizes she may have misjudged one brother and wonders if it’s too late to win his admiration.

The only thing inspirational about this story was to make me want to wash my ears. The most sanctimonious none sense I'm have wasted my time on this century.

He leads morning prayers with the servants every morning, spends a lot of time with his bible etc. He's forever praying.

Hugh Philemon Ancaster, seventh Duke of Ripley, will never win prizes for virtue. But even he draws the line at running off with his best friend's bride. All he's trying to do is recapture the slightly inebriated Lady Olympia Hightower and return her to her intended bridegroom. For reasons that elude her, bookish, bespectacled Olympia is supposed to marry a gorgeous rake of a duke. The ton is flabbergasted. Her family's ecstatic. And Olympia? She's climbing out of a window, bent on a getaway.

While I always rate I seldom review. In this instance a review is necessary. The story is funny, downright laughable and with Kate Reading narrating, there nothing to lose and everything to gain. Three drunks and a runaway bride. I could never see myself willingly wedded to a drunk. But the drunks are Dukes and marriage to a Duke is always a thing to which to aspire. The story begins with one of the Disgraces showing up to his wedding too drunk to stand. No, it's not because of a bachelor party the night before. He's always like...

There are worse things than being spectacularly jilted. Losing a leg, for instance, or getting shot - well, perhaps not: The bullet Alistair took fighting in the peninsula never landed him in London's scandal sheets. Captain Alistair Beaumaris never dreamed he'd be tossed over by Lord Fairchild's bastard daughter, losing both her and her fortune - a singular humiliation that should have taught him a lesson. But when your luck is out, you do foolish things, like quarrel with your oldest friend. Or mistake a perfectly respectable widow for a lady of easy virtue.

Sir Richard Kenworthy has less than a month to find a bride. He knows he can't be too picky, but when he sees Iris Smythe-Smith hiding behind her cello at her family's infamous musicale, he thinks he might have struck gold. She's the type of girl you don't notice until the second - or third - look, but there's something about her, something simmering under the surface, and he knows she's the one.

The Dowager Lady Worthington isn't quite sure what to make of country-girl Dorothea Stern. As the granddaughter of the Duke of Bristol, Dotty is schooled in the ways and means of the nobility. But her sharp wit and outspoken nature has everyone in a tizzy. Especially their cousin, Dominic, the Marquis of Merton. Prematurely stuffy, Dom was raised by his cheerless uncle to be wary of a host of things, including innovation, waltzing, and most perilous of all: true love. Still, there's something about Dotty, beyond her beauty, that Dom cannot resist.

Yes it is a Regency novel but there is nothing cheesy about it. The story is well crafted and the characters well drawn. The Marquis is as dry as the the stick up his rump. He was raised steeped in the belief that he is an aristo and entitled. All was as it was to have been until an unknown woman approached him demanding he listen and hls refusal to release her until he could determine what she was up to. She was only trying to warn him of a pending parsons trap but before she could do it he dragged them both into an unintended trap and she became his afianceed bride. She is also an aristo but from the other wing. She believes that to whom much is given even more is expected. Being an aristo just isn't enough.

There are no spoliers here. Just a lost boy, a couple of kittens, murder, kidnapping and your usual Regency novel fare.
