Kurzbeschreibung

A little Greek is one thing; the art of love is another. Only one man has ever tried to teach Lady Georgiana Hayden both. She learned very young to keep her heart safe. She learned to keep loneliness at bay through work. If it takes a scandalous affair to teach her what she needs to complete her work, she will risk it. If the man in question chooses not to teach her, she will use any means at her disposal to change his mind. She is determined to give voice to the ancient women whose poetry has long been neglected.

Some scars cut deeper than others. Major Andrew Mallet returns to Cambridge a battle-scarred hero. He dared to love Georgiana once and suffered swift retribution from her powerful family. The encounter cost him eleven years of his life. Determined to avoid her, he seeks work to heal his soul and make his scholarly father proud. The work she offers risks his career, his peace of mind, and (worst of all) his heart. Can he protect himself from a woman who almost destroyed him? Does he want to?

Even poetry is dangerous when you partner with the love of your life. In Regency, Cambridge, it can lead a lady quickly past improper to positively scandalous.

Not your usual historical romance - no rakes, no debutantes, no scandalous widows. Andrew and Lady Georgiana were torn apart when his schoolfriend and her brother Richard bought Andrew a commision, convincing Andrew he had no chance with his sister. She received no other offers and now in her mid-thirties lives only for her translations of Greek poetry written by women. Andrew has returned to Cambridge and she's determined to get his help with her translations, having been rejected and ridiculed by the Cambridge scholars. The power and reach of her family is intimidating, further hindering their plans.
I found the detail in their collaboration and brain-storming while translating the ancient poems quite interesting.
Overall very well-written. I could feel Lady Georgiana's pain of solitude and frustration. I will definitely read more of Caroline Warfield's works.

... ist die arbeit der protagonistin nur insofern, als es ihrem ruf schaden kann - wobei sie ob ihres alters eigentlich sowieso schon jenseits von gut und böse ist.
wie in den anderen "dangerous"-büchern ist auch hier jede menge 21. jahrhundert in den köpfen der hauptpersonen, es finden sich immer wieder sätze, die offensichtlich geändert, aber nicht richtig korrigiert wurden, so daß worte oder satzteile doppelt vorhanden sind und das lesen erschweren, aber es ist immerhin einigermaßen spannend.

HASH(0x8c66a6d8) von 5 Sternen DANGEROUS WORKS~ 7. Februar 2015
Von Coffee Time Romance & More - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have to be honest, I found it difficult to rate this book. On the one hand, the pace was quite slow, the desire-masquerading-as-animosity theme too prolonged, and the actions of the characters sometimes confusing. For example, Lady Georgiana portrays all the classic traits of a strong-willed woman, yet in the face of her aristocratic parents she reverts to uncharacteristic helplessness. On the other hand, the historical references were spot on, and the use of ancient Greek poetry in the plot, and as a mechanism for character development, was inspired. In the end, I was glad I persisted in reading through to the conclusion, despite the reservations I had.

HASH(0x8c66a72c) von 5 Sternen This is a new author to me and I really loved this book 5. Juli 2015
Von maryt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Struck gold! This is a new author to me and I really loved this book. I just downloaded the only other book (DANGEROUS SECRETS) that Amazon has by this author. I hope there are more coming by her.

I liked both the hero and heroine. The heroine is especially well written. She is a little older (mid thirties) and a scholarly, intelligent woman who is out of step with the times and her class (aristocratic) - and has suffered because of it - much at the hands of her own family.

I love romance and I love it presented in an historical setting. I read a LOT of these books. So many of the modern authors write heroines that you would think had been born in 1978 rather than 1798. They are strong, independent women who seem totally oblivious to the mores of the time.

Well I think strong, independent women have existed since the beginning of time. So has sex, married or otherwise. I think the difference is in how it is presented. The presentation in this story seemed much more realistic to the times. There is sex but it did not seem gratuitous to me.

I look forward to reading more by this author.

HASH(0x8c66aa08) von 5 Sternen A thoroughly satisfying read 19. März 2015
Von Jude Knight - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I bought Dangerous Works a few days ago so that I would be able to read it before the next in the series was published, and I devoured it in two bites (going and coming on my commuter train). It is one of those books where the writing is so good you don't notice it. I was immersed in the story, and time flew by. I dragged myself from the world of Andrew and Georgiana with difficulty, and couldn't wait to plunge back in.

Georgiana is a woman in her mid-30s living alone because the only man she ever wanted (and the only man who ever wanted her) left without explanation years earlier. She lives for her scholarship - translating and giving a voice to the women poets of ancient Greece. When she finds that her suitor - the only person ever to encourage her work - has returned, she seeks his help with her translation.

Andrew joined the army many years earlier because he couldn't marry Georgiana. Scarred and still suffering from his most recent injury, he is unhappy to find that the old feelings are still there, stronger than ever.

I sympathised with Andrew, I understood Georgiana, and suffered with them both as they faced gossip, scandal, her powerful family and their own misconceptions. Thank you, Caroline, for a thoroughly satisfying read. Now for Dangerous Secrets!

HASH(0x8c66a900) von 5 Sternen Delightfully Different - I REALLY Enjoyed it 30. April 2015
Von Linda Jean - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A book I actually finished – and totally enjoyed. This was a thoroughly engaging, interesting and delightfully different story that kept my interest through to the last satisfying page. I do love to discover a new author with a new voice. Speaking of new voices, that was the theme of this book.

Lady Georgina, daughter of a duke, finds herself 35 years old, unmarried, remarkably solitary and relatively unsatisfied with her life. She has discovered that she is practically invisible and does not have, nor ever has had a voice in the direction of her life. Her cold and distant family has ignored her, except for one brother who has manipulated her, and she has been relegated to the fringes of their lives.

When the story opens, it seems she has slipped from the powerful family’s immediate notice and has moved to an establishment of her own in Cambridge, where she intends to pursue her unorthodox scholarly research of translating poems of unpublished Greek women. Except she can find no resources to assist her and, while she is supported in financial comfort by her imperious father, she attempts in vain to gain use of a library or a tutor.

Her life seems unfulfilled – she is somewhat unhealthy, lonely, bored and frustrated – until she meets Andrew. I loved Andrew – he was a quietly competent hero, not a rakish bone in his body. He also wasn’t a member of the nobility, but he was most definitely noble. The son of an eminent scholar and a reluctant military man seriously wounded at Waterloo, we meet Andrew when he is at a very low point. He has returned from the war financially enriched by his service, but physically scarred and is attempting to pick up the threads of his life.

Turns out Andrew and she have a history – and a future – and the story of both is an absorbing, uplifting story. I really loved the characters in this well-written book and enjoyed their development. Of course, I loved the romance, as well. This was a wonderfully substantial, well-written, totally satisfying book and I’d certainly recommend it. Extra bonus that it was a Kindle Unlimited selection!

HASH(0x8c66af48) von 5 Sternen Translating love into real life. 28. März 2015
Von OLT - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
As a romance this book frustrated me at times since the H and h were often too stubborn and too inconsistent in their behavior. Yet I still feel it's a 4-star book because of the more unusual academic setting in Cambridge and the love of two scholarly people, united by their interest in the classics. (Not to mention I do like the way Warfield writes.)

Lady Georgiana Hayden is a duke's daughter and the sister of Richard Hayden, a young marquess with a bit of a stick up his aristocratic you-know-what. Long ago Georgiana had been close to Andrew Mallet, one of Richard's friends. Andrew was the son of a Cambridge scholar and he and Georgiana had their love of Greek and Latin in common. But when Richard saw their friendship turning into something more serious, he strongly "encouraged" middle-class Andrew to enlist in the army and leave upper-class Georgiana alone.

So for more than eleven years Georgiana, ignorant of Richard's part in Andrew's leaving, has felt resentment toward Andrew, not just for having lost his love but also his encouragement and help with her academic pursuits. Certainly no one, neither her family nor anyone else in the rarefied strata of the Upper Ten Thousand, believes that a woman should pursue knowledge.

Now Andrew is back from the war, scarred and badly wounded, finding walking difficult and painful and he's in need of more skilled medical treatment than he has received so far. He's living now in Cambridge and who should he meet up with but Lady Georgiana. Not good. He still loves her and knows, just knows, knows, knows that he must keep her away from himself.

I forgot to mention that Georgiana, in those 11 years of his absence, has been living alone and pursuing her academic studies as best she can without help from absolutely anyone at all. Apparently even a duke's daughter cannot find anyone to tutor her or encourage her and allow her access to library sources. For some reason, although I could sympathize with a woman's struggle to receive an education in the 1800s, I found Georgiana somewhat lacking in backbone and resourcefulness. If nothing else, couldn't she have taken up correspondence with one scholar or another, perhaps disguising her sex by signing G. Hayden, for example?

But she doesn't and so just muddles along on her own with her pet project, the translation of poetry by ancient Greek women. She still has issues with stylistics in her translations. It's one thing to translate literally. It's quite another to get into the style, art and spirit of the piece being translated. Not to mention the fact that much of this poetry has sensual/erotic hidden meaning (hence the "dangerous works" of this book's title) and Georgiana is a bit innocent. This lends itself to some great interaction between Andrew and her as they work together on the translations.

Well, now you know what will happen, probably. Andrew needs physical healing. Georgiana needs more academic mentoring. Pretty obvious, right? There's a lot to like about this story and the relationship of the H and h. Unfortunately, they headbutt just too much and the heroine has too many histrionic and less-than-bright episodes to allow me to give the story five stars. Yet it's a good read with some rather brilliant moments.

I read this after Warfield's Dangerous Secrets. WORKS takes place in 1816, while SECRETS takes place in 1820 and features baron Jamie Heyworth, a secondary in WORKS. Reading out of order didn't cause any problems. The stories are standalone, although there are recurring characters.
