Kurzbeschreibung

***AN AMAZON BESTSELLER FOR 3 MONTHS STRAIGHT***

"Using wit and romance with a master's skill, Kasey Michaels aims for the heart and never misses." -- Nora Roberts

"Surprising twists, great wit, charming characters and an impeccable portrait of the Regency are features that have made Kasey Michaels a beloved author. ESCAPADE is a delightful romp." -- RT Book Reviews

Caledonia Johnston lies in wait inside the dark town coach of one Noel Kinsey, rotter, eager to exact justice in the name of her absent brother. It may not be the best plan, but it seems workable, at least until she realizes she has hidden herself inside entirely the wrong coach.

Worse, the man now being held at pistol-point is maddening, unflappable, condescending, and quite unimpressed that his would-be assailant holds his life in her hands. In fact, he seems to find her amusing.

Callie escapes the encounter, but not the man, as it falls out that Simon Roxbury also has a bone to pick with Noel Kinsey, and it would seem Miss Johnston and her bloodthirsty plans could serve him very well.

An unholy alliance is struck, the two conspirators battle each other, a matchmaking mama, two interested and not above interfering friends, and a poor soul (who doesn’t look his best in pink), in this delicious tale of revenge gone wrong and romance definitely gone right!

4.0 von 5 Sternen usual Michael humor 19. Juli 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
"Escapade" is simply delicious!! There were parts where I was laughing non-stop until I almost cried. It was done up in the style of "Indiscreet" although not quite so satifying.
Like all her other books, Micheals gave "Escapade" a strong, diverse, cutesy cast. There was the main protagonists, "Miss C." and Simon Rocksbury, Viscount Brockton. Sidekicks come in the package of Lester Plum, an overweight, peaches and cream to-die-for adorable bestfriend who shares a penchant with Imogene for chocolate tarts, and is always caught in scrapes not of his making. One scheme had poor Lester dressed up in a pink frock (not his best color, were told), masquerading as C's aunt Leslie! Theres also the Simon's mother Imogene, the outrageously tall, bulky Viscountess, and don't you dare add "dowager" to her title thank you very much mama! She is forever starving herself and laced up in corsets for the sole reason of finding a husband beofre Simon marries as to not be delegated to the dower house. Her real reason is so far from that! Of course Simon has to have his friends, in this case they are Bartholomew Boothe aka "Bones" an all together too thin, short, nervous man who hobbies includes expounding on the virtues of eating, last there is Armand Gaultier an American breed "ex-privateer" who is too handsome and smooth by half, with a nice fabricated history to share, and the fathers, brother, and the nasty villain.
This is a laguh a mile, revenge gone wrong story with both the hero and heroine out for revenge for 2 distinct reason, Callie's is revealed and you'll have to read to know Simon's. Definitley pick it up if you are looking for laughs, this book will keep you guessing in all the wrong directions.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good book, but but 13. August 1999
Von Ein Kunde
Format:Taschenbuch
I do have a few very minor complaints-
I thought the main characters were likable and entertaining. First, the book could actually be edited down 50 pages. There was too much inane dialogue (which I think was put there) to illustrate the wit or teasing banter of their conversations. Secondly, the heroine Callie was a trifle annoying with her stubborness and foolish antics. I could not relate to her, she was too young and immature. Finally, I can't help but feel that there could have been more.... description of the feelings they were experiencing, or twists to the plot. The plot was your typical formula, but all in all it worked for me. Overall a good book.
There are strong supporting characters. They offer us comic relief and add to the story. I thought the hero Simon, Viscount Roxbury was wonderful as the hero. But I hope that Ms. Michaels will not ignore Armand Gauthier (Simon's close friend). Armand would make a fantastic hero for an upcoming novel. I could have read more about him! He has sex appeal, character, charm and intelligence--all wonderful traits for an upcoming lead character.
I gave it 4 stars, because of those minor complaints. Good book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A very entertaing Regency Romance. 4. Juli 1999
Format:Taschenbuch
Escapade Kasey Michaels ISBN 0-446-60683-9
Warner Books - July 1999
How Sweet is revenge? Ms Caldonia Johnson, Simon Roxbury; Viscount Brocton and at least a half dozen other zany, inept, bumbling, funny funny characters are sure to find out. Ms Johnson wants to shoot the bad man in the knee so he will be sure and suffer whenever the weather is damp. Her first attempt goes astray when she mistakes the Viscount for her prey. From that moment on this hilarious book just gets better and funnier.
The Viscount's Mamma is a story on her own. She wants her son to marry, but not before she can find a strong virile, (with emphasis on the virile), man for her bed. Nobody is going to call her dowager.
Anyway Ms Michaels as per usual puts it all together in her wonderful style that will have you rolling on the floor with laughter, and unable to put the book down because you can't wait to see what kind of mischief come next.
Definitely a five star keeper.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I'd forgotten how much I like Kasey Michaels! 24. Juni 2000
Format:Taschenbuch
This book was witty and well-written. I laughed out loud several times - "Bones" is priceless. Kasey Michaels usually does well with her secondary characters, which I appreciate in a book. Simon didn't stand a chance of resisting the pull of his heart toward Callie, who is charming, if misguided. And Imogene's ploys to re-marry are a treat. I hope you'll buy this book and enjoy it as much as I did.

2.0 von 5 Sternen silly 9. September 1999
Von Ein Kunde

Michaels failed to persuade me of anything. I didn't believe in her characters or the period setting, and certainly not in the absurd plot. I gave up after a few chapters. With a book this limp, who cares how it ends?
