    1. I was captivated by Amanda Grange's amazing talent for writing and capturing the regency era perfectly when I read her series of diaries when she told the story of the much loved Jane Austen novels from the heroes point of view. And then I decided to try some of her other regency romances, starting with this one (also know as 'The earl next Door'), and I was not disappointed!She once again caught the style of period perfectly, and with a very interesting and intriguing plot, some wonderful 'unco [...]


    2. Note: This book was originally published under the title of "Anything But A Gentleman."Marianne is delighted when the empty estate next door is rented by an earl, but she soon finds that Luke, Lord Ravensford is anything but a gentleman! And yet with his dark hair and his dangerous air, she finds herself irresistibly drawn to him, despite the rumors that he has ruined her missing brother. When the secret of Kit's disappearance is exposed, she finds herself drawn into an adventure which will test [...]


    3. This was an easy-to-read romance set in 1793. There were elements of the plot that I found a little hard to believe and others that were entirely predictable, but this didn't affect my enjoyment of the book too much. I did find that the continual repetition of the title phrase 'anything but a gentleman' did grate somewhat, but overall, a pleasant read.


    4. If I didn't read so much Regency romance, I would have probably given this book 3 stars, but as it is, I felt that this book didn't quite catch my heart and imagination as many others I have read. Overall, this book is a good, quick read, romance. I just felt that things between the characters got really intense, really fast- like in the movie Twilightese people don't know each other, insult each otherd oh now I want to kiss you passionately just didn't work for me. Also I felt that so much of t [...]


    5. It took me three months to finish this short story - you can tell how captivating it was. At times it was difficult to figure out what was going on, other times, I found myself skimming (near the end) with all of the He wants Me, I want him, he's in love with someone else. This was surprising for Amanda Grange, as I have quite enjoyed your other books - particularly her JA Hero diaries. Oh well



    6. This book is a quick read, I started reading it about 9pm on the 30th of June and finished it around Noon on July 1st and managed to sleep a customary 6 hours between. The premise is rather typical of these sorts of books, girl with her own mind in a time period where that sort of thing is not usually welcomed meets with a dashing man who is anything but a gentleman. Throw in some sort of drama, some trite reason for there to be danger and action and a little romance and you have a story. That b [...]


    7. Open the scene in historical English countryside with the terror burning through France on the other side of the ChannelMiss Marianne is out riding with Tom her footman/factotum and finds a man trapped in a mantrap (imagine a metal teeth bear trap). She quickly releases the stranger and takes him home to help heal his leg. So the next day she storms over to her new neighbor's mansion to complain and demand that they take away the mantraps. Miss Marianne is pretty lovely, but head strong and naiv [...]


    8. What a fun quick read! Finished it in one evening as I wanted desperately to see what would become of Marianne and Lord Ravensford. Marianne is managing her fathers estate and is passionate about getting traps removed off the land that she seeks out her new neighbour without a proper chaperone. As Lord Ravensford is anything but a gentlemen he misunderstands her intentions at visiting and starts off on the wrong foot with Marianne. Marianne is a bold, outspoken, beautiful woman and tells him exa [...]


    9. Finally! A good, clean romance at last. With just enough mystery, angst, and adventure.At first the heroine annoyed me at the end when she took bits and pieces of information and assumed the worst then cowardly refused to talk to the hero. But I decided to forgive her, as we've all done stupid things when we're in love and terrified of being hurt. An epilogue would have been nice as well. I love a good epilogue.The author is British, so it was written and edited in British English with different [...]


    10. This was an entertaining read with a good storyline. My only complaint is with the ending when Luke and Marianne discuss all their misunderstandings and everything is so quickly resolved. If their communication can be that good then there shouldn't have been any misunderstandings in the first place! Well, but then there wouldn't have been a story, I suppose. Overall, the pace is good and the plot moved along nicely until the ending which felt a wee bit rushed. A good way to pass the time though. [...]


    11. Amanda writes fun story's with little depth. Her story's are always just for fun and romance. This is a clean regency read about an unconventional Lady and the rouge Earl. When we first meet him I didn't know if I could keep reading, I was really put off by how he acts. The writing was a little irritating bouncing back and forth points of view in the middle of everything. This would be a PG rated book with no religion.


    12. This was an enjoyable read. I liked the dynamic between Marianne and Lord Ravensford. I especially liked their meeting where he mistakes her for a light skirt. I would have liked to read more about their growing relationship instead of her just avoiding him. She also fell in love a little too easily. For an earlier novel, I still like the story. There are so many possibilities of expanding characters and events for a fan-fiction writer.


    13. Hmm lumayan, lumayan. Lumayan bagus maksudnya :) *aih, mulai kehabisan kata-kata nih*di dalam ceritanya ada sedikit petualangan, sedikit misteri dan suspense, banyak aksi dan romansa yang awalnya berusaha kuat dihindari si hero terhadap heroine karena sense of duty dan honor bound ke kakak laki-laki si heroine yang juga teman dekat si hero~ :)


    14. Rated 3.5 stars.Reading this one on my kindle under another title The Earl Next Door, I am 76% done and so far it is a clean read! Love it when you don't have to put a book aside because of the content!


    15. Wow! What an intriguing book! I really loved it! The last chapter when the misunderstanding is over and everything is settled between those too was really intense and I was se relieved at last!4.5 stars from me!



    16. Not quite as good as the author's other books but still couldn't put it down. Didn't care for the characters as much either. But enjoyed the suspense, and the tension, however predictable.





    17. I read this over night during one of my many bouts of insomnia. It was very entertaining and predictable with plenty of humour to lighten an otherwise heavy subject. Pleasantly silly.




    18. This one was a little more passionate than her other novels. It had some very passionate kisses. The plot was ok. There were a few dangs and hecks.


    19. This is a Regency "just kisses" story. It is a very well put together and rather enjoyable read. A little bit ballroom, country weekend, and a hop over the Channel story. Good fun!!


    20. One of her earlier novels, and you can tell. Amanda Grange has really progressed as an author since then. It was ok but nothing special.


    21. the writing was shallow and needed editing desperately. although the concept of the story was good, the writing made it hard to bear
