Kurzbeschreibung

Threatened with an unwanted marriage, Lady Josceline Woodsby escapes London to take a position as a country governess. When she discovers the job is no longer available, Josceline vows she will do anything to avoid returning to her previously dismal life - even if it means coercing the ruthless Captain Sharrington into providing her with employment.

Spurned by a father he never knew and sent off to sea at a very young age, Christopher Sharrington leaves a promising naval career determined to make his own mark on society as owner of a shipping enterprise. The only problem is, hiring the alluring Lady Woodsby as governess for children he doesn’t even have, is definitely not part of his future plans.

Josceline soon realizes Christopher is under the mistaken impression her social connections will help him attain his dream. Will he cast her out when he determines she is more a hindrance than a help? And what of the devastating secret he harbors? Will it destroy any chance they have of building a future together?

5.0 von 5 Sternen so macht Lesen Spaß :) 3. November 2012
Von emdawi
Format:Kindle Edition
"Her Proper Scoundrel" war mein erstes Buch von A.M. Westerling und es hat mich nicht enttäuscht!

Die Kurzbeschreibung gibt genug von dem Inhalt preis, daher hier von mir keine Erläuterung.
Die Geschichte ist witzig, flott und einfach zum Dahinschmelzen :)

Empfehlung für jeden, der starke Frauen und Romantik mag!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Everything a romance should be. 22. Juli 2012
Von NancyD - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Westerling delivers with a hunky rogue hiding a dark secret, a plucky heroine who can think on her feet, and a million reasons why they can't be together. Add easy-to-read, snappy writing, a palpable setting that immerses the reader in another time with its own set of rules, and this story becomes a perfect escape for a summer day. An enjoyable, low-stress read with characters you'll root for.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Readable Regency 6. August 2012
Von J. Hopkins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The writing is smooth and the dialogue flows in this Regency romance, but the language doesn't have the flavor of the time period. Neither would the housekeeper have a patchwork quilt in England in 1798. Any quilts would have been whole coverets, like a chintz quilt, and Newgate Prison was in London, not Bristol.

This book also had the most explicit sex, both before and after marriage, I've ever read in a Regency. The first time was in the library on a desk. I think the novel would have been much stronger without this. It detracted rather than enhanced.

The storyline was interesting, however, and got better as the story progressed. Josceline tried to find a position as a governess, because her father had become a drunk and was trying to sell her in marriage, for she was the daughter of a duke. Christopher wanted to be accepted by the ton and start a shipping business by procuring investors. When their lives meet, nothing will be the same again.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A well written journey into history. 23. Juli 2012
Von Ionia Martin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed this book immensely. The single thing that impressed me most was the dialog. I have read previous historical novels where the author seemed to have no grasp on the language spoken during the featured time period. This was not the case with this beautifully written book. The author made the conversations within these pages come alive. I found there was a perfect balance of humor and romance to make for an exciting and pleasant read.

The story itself was unique and pleasing to read and I found the characters to be engaging and three-dimensional. I would certainly recommend this book to anyone searching for an excellent summer romance read. I will look for more works from this author in the future.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Uneven and a bit odd 25. Dezember 2012
Von loves2read - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Josceline is the daughter of a disgraced duke. Christopher is a would-be merchant captain desperate for acceptance by the ton. When events bring them on a collision course, nothing in their lives is safe, especially their hearts.

I found this book a little odd. Overall, the writing is very smooth and the language isn't jarringly modern, which is nice. The main characters are decently interesting, if not exactly groundbreakingly original--the heroine is spunky, the hero is brooding and roguish. The villain of the piece, however, was a little too one-dimensional, and didn't even get a very satisfying comeuppance in the end. However, what threw me off was the historical inconsistency. On the one hand, the author seemed to be trying to maintain the Regency flow of language, and had clearly researched some aspects, such as the shipping angle. On the other hand, it drove me nuts every time someone referred to the heroine as "Lady Woodsby." As the daughter of a duke, her courtesy title is "Lady Josceline." "Lady Woodsby" implies she is married to Lord Woodsby (ie, her father, the duke). After her marriage, since her husband has no rank, she should still be addressed as Lady Josceline, NOT Mrs. Sharrington (although this is forgivable for characters who have not previously met her), and definitely not Lady Woodsby. More crucial to the plot, Josceline's social standing is all over the place in this book. She's accepted, but not marriagable in the beginning, then too high to be a companion, but acceptable as a governess (What? Those positions are pretty much equal on the social strata--jobs for impoverished gentrywomen in a shadow class between society and servant.) Despite being employed as a governess, she is invited to a ball...and then only a few pages later declares herself to be a complete social pariah because of her father, yet on several occasions relies on her influences "as the daughter of a duke". Occasionally, these inconsistencies are given a handwave, such as her relying that the person she's talking to doesn't know much about the Duke of Cranton, but it gave me a headache trying to figure out just what Josceline's relationship to high society was, which is a huge issue in the book. It felt like the author was making it up based on whatever was most convenient for a particular scene.

I wasn't a huge fan of the story. It started off strong, but it seemed far too plot-driven over character-driven. Although the book takes place over a decent chunk of time, the couple fall for each other very quickly. While they don't confess their feelings, there is little doubt that that they will stay together. The majority of the book is more about Josceline and Christopher trying to get out of various scrapes. It's fairly interesting, but not very emotionally compelling, nor terribly funny.

I will say that the book made me believe that Josceline and Christopher could make it work in or out of society, which I feel is rare for a Regency. Usually, if a book stretches my belief that the characters wouldn't get kicked out of the ton for their stunts, I won't really believe the HEA. But in this case, I felt that the characters' relationship went beyond their social status and that they would find a way to be happy together even if they ended up penniless.

The plot was a little beyond the pale, but the dialogue was wonderful. I enjoyed this book and would read this author again.
