    1. As the blurb promises, this novel is a romantic farce, chock full of clichés, handsome dominating hero and reluctant hoydenish miss with a sharp tongue. Melwyn gets kidnapped at one point but handles it with such confidence and humour it made me laugh aloud.Readers should not take this story too seriously as with every line, Ms Scott Lewis pokes fun at late eighteenth century society and men in general. There is also a cheeky Cornish maid with an over the top accent who adds colour and humour. [...]


    2. This is a tad slow to start--or maybe I'm a tad slow to get with the satirical program. At any rate, if you've had it up to your eyeballs with Pseudo-Regency rip-offs all over the best seller lists, this book could be a perfect antidote.

    3. A hilarious romp through the eighteenth century, where every cliché is explored and exploited. For those of you who dislike formula romance, you'll love this satirical send-up. For romance lovers, there just might be a happy ending.
