    1. I started this book last evening, having read the first chapter online, and could not put it down. I recently discovered the Pink Carnation series by Lauren Willig and this was very similar in atmosphere and temper. Light-hearted, well crafted, and a very easy read. I think that fans of Georgette Heyer and Jane Austen will find this book a pleasant romp. Mr. Malcolm is reminiscent of Mr. Darcy, a bit rigid in the beginning but quite pliable in the end. I read this in a single sitting. It is a ve [...]

    2. Update 6/29/15 I'm knocking this down a star because, despite the fact that I read it 3 weeks ago, I can't remember a single thing! It's that forgettable. *****This book could have used a bit more fleshing out. At only two hundred pages, there was plenty more opportunity to delve more into the characters and spend more time examining their motivations. Particularly the second half of the book, it felt like things were magically resolved a bit too much.

    3. This is a fantastic study on how not to write a regency romance.Let me just start by saying that Selina is more than a tolerable main character. I liked her a lot. I don't think I would have been able to finish this book if I had to deal with an annoying mc on top of everything else.Let's just run through it.Setting: Awful.It's like Allain read one regency romance and then decided to write her own, with no knowledge of history or Britain. The language is so very modern. They might as well have s [...]

    4. This light romantic comedy is filled with the usual cliched characters and plot devices. I didn't like the relationship between Malcolm and Selina. I felt it could have been better developed aside from mere physical attraction. They are both intelligent and witty but most of their interactions are sparse on dialogue. Malcolm mostly comes across as a snob who doesn't really know what he wants. Selina is a bit too nice at first but she improves as her temper is tried. Another character experiences [...]

    5. After reading Ingocnito by Allain I had to see what other books she had written, which is how I found Mr. Malcolms List. This was probably just as fun as Incognito, both are lighthearted regency novels. I thought the story idea was fun, the characters likable and of course I love the regency setting. I admit, I did not love Mr. Malcolm, but he did grow on my throughout the story. I definitely think it’s a good idea to have a general idea of what qualities you look for in a spouse, I just didn [...]

    6. Very cute and many laugh out loud moments. It started out a 3 for me and got better and better as it went along.

    7. I've never actually read a book from this genre before. I know, I knowhave I been hiding under a rock? What can I say, Cliffs notes were my friend in school.After reading so many "romances" that are in your face with the content, I was wondering how I'd respond to the subdued nature of the the content of this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. In fact, I flew through the book finishing it in 2 days.It was well-written, and the dialogue was extremely clever. I really enjoyed the characters. Even the [...]

    8. Well, this was a super fun book! I quite enjoyed it! It's funny - I thought, after looking at the synopses, that I would like another book of Suzanne Allain's (Incognito) better, but this one was better, in my opinion.Essentially, this is a Regency period romantic comedy. Mr. Malcolm is the second son of an earl, but has inherited a large estate and a huge amount of money, so he is a popular guy with the ladies. To make sure he finds everything he wants in a woman (and protects his heart), he's [...]

    9. I was prepared for this to be not-Georgette-Heyer going into it. I wasn't prepared for the areas where we lose the big things that made upper class Regency society what it was. At one point, the heroine and hero are together, in an alcove at a balld when he tries to kiss her, she succumbs. Where was the hitting-him-with-her-fan for his advances? Assuming she didn't want to become his mistress, what was she thinking? Gentlemen don't take advantage of young women when their foot has demanded that [...]

    10. Hmm Well, I really liked the first half of the book. Allain does a nice job of incorporating almost satirical humor as the characters meet, and develop feelings for each other. The storyline follows as one might predict from the synopsis, with: the heroine being roped into a scheme to humiliate the hero, the heroine and hero falling in love with each other, the hero believing the heroine was involved in treachery, and then the fallout. It was this last point I wasn't crazy about, because Allain [...]

    11. I'm so glad I found this gem of a book on GR and would highly recommend this to anyone wh likes reading well written, clever historical romance with a lot of humour and a delightful cast of characters. In the beginning, we are introduced to Mr Malcolm, a fastidious eligible bachelor with a list of criteria of what he looks for in a bride. Unfortunately for him, one of the ladies he had turned down found out about his list, and with a bad case of sour grapes, she enlisted her attractive friend to [...]

    12. I really enjoyed this book! Suzanne Allain's style of writing reminds me a lot of L. M. Montgomery (her short stories, not A of GG). There is the development of characters, the conflict, and resolution complete with a moral. It's succinct, and a very quick read. I highly recommend this delightful book!

    13. I really love books about the Victorian era in which passion has to be suppressed by societal conventions and manners. This story is that type. I actually would give it two and a half stars, if that were possible, because it is not all that well-written, but it was "cute." There is some clever, laugh-out-loud repartee between the main characters. Not great literature, but an enjoyable read.

    14. Regency Wit and HumourA Regency Romance filled with devious plans and counterplans that leave our hero and heroine in confusion. Yet their witty dialogue carries the tale as they genuinely fall in love contrary to the manipulation of their friends.A sweet, clean love story told with humour. Light and fun.

    15. This is a well paced charming book that is built for farce! If a man were to be hung by his own petard it could only be by a woman without an agenda to her own cause. A light hearted read well stocked in follies that leave the reader with lots of laughs. Not a must read, however a good why not poke a bit of fun from this one?

    16. Typical Regency romance with spunky heroine, interference, misunderstandings, and resolution. A much sought-after gentleman has a list of qualities he expects in a woman. A spurned lady decides to turn things around by introducing another lady who fulfills all his requirements, but then have this lady reject him. Not a Georgette Heyer, but in that vein.Light and fluffy.

    17. Very Austen-ish, but without all her splendid detail about everything. The story was a fun, lighthearted romance. Mr. Malcolm has a list of requirements for marriage, and comes to find out that the person he loves is more important than any list.

    18. I really enjoyed reading this book. It was a very quick read and I found it to be pretty funny. I would recommend this book to those who enjoy reading Jane Austen. I also really liked this author and now I want to read some of her other novels.

    19. It was ok but I didn't feel connected with the characters nor do I feel that they had character. It was more of a series of events put together. Read it if you like plot centered stories.

    20. The plot is quite simple, the writing can be a bit too prosey, but the characterization is decent and it made me chuckle and sometimes laugh.

    21. The first time I picked the book up I wasn't hooked but I happened to pick it up again before returning it to the library and loved it! It was a cute no-brainer and fun to read.
