Ein Roman für faule Tage und Abende mit leicht zu lesendem Englisch. Die Charaktere sind liebevoll gestaltet und man kann sich sehr gut in sie hineinversetzen. Neben der eigentlichen Handlung, die auch ein bisschen Spannung bereithält, sind die Dialoge der vier Freunde spritzig und witzig, sodass ich mir den ein oder anderen Lacher nicht verkneifen konnte! Macht auf jeden Fall Lust auf mehr!!

HASH(0x9b2cb21c) von 5 Sternen Caution: contemporary language and historically impossible situations 14. August 2013
Von Penny Black - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
The description of this book was intriguing enough that I picked it up without reading the sample. My mistake. Having read many well written British historicals, I prefer plots that take into account the morals and mores of the historical period in which they are set. To me, that is where this book came up short.

Contemporary phasing kept me from getting into the story, but I kept on reading until I got to the scene, in which a "winded" butler interrupted the new duchess in the middle of her conversation with her erstwhile housekeeper because her neighbors - a vicar's wife and an unmarried miss - had come to call.

Given her superior rank, it was up to the duchess to make the first round of calls to persons she deemed worth knowing socially. Her being "at home" to persons, who'd put themselves forward in an unseemely way a way would have been unlikely. And if she were unaware of the impropriety of their behavior, the ducal butler certainly would have been and should have quelled their pretensions by denying them entrance.

The heroine was supposed to be the daughter of a social climber, who went to great pains to ensure she would one day become duchess, so his failure to prepare her for the role made no sense to me. Simply put, this wasn't "my kind" of historical romance.

HASH(0x989d97d4) von 5 Sternen Modern story disguised as a Regency 23. August 2013
Von Sandy Milan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This kind of book is my pet hate since I can't work out why the author decided on a Regency setting. The premise of the story is a good one and if the execution had been up to scratch, the book could've been really good. Basically the H is forced to marry the h, who is a commoner because of an agreement his father made with the h's father over a gambling debt. The H is very angry when they marry and abandons her for a few months on his country estate. He returns to fetch her and take her back to London with him. There are problems with a villain and the h's dreadful family.

So what was wrong with the book? ***Spoilers***
Very little was authentic to the period and it grated on my nerves eventually. I'm certainly not a stickler for period details but honestly so many things were wrong. I hated the way the H and h called each other 'Duke' and 'Duchess'. There was no observance to any of the rules of that period and characters behaved in very modern ways. Some of the scenarios were incredibly unrealistic like the h going to a few balls and then the H declaring her to be an established figure in the Ton. Extremely unlikely as she was a commoner and hadn't done anything to establish herself. The H and the villain dueling at the ball on the terrace was ridiculous. The story with the h and the puppy was unrealistic too. The dialogue was very simplistic and modern too. I could go on and on and I don't want to be unfair but I suggest that the author read some Kleypas or Balogh before she writes another Regency.

HASH(0x989fccb4) von 5 Sternen Grammar errors pull the reader out of the story 2. September 2013
Von L. Starkey - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This sweet Regency is a forced marriage narrative with an appealing hero and heroine. It's a good entry into the format, but the writing suffers from the writer's misuse of words. Example: "I should have realized society would conjure up several nasty inflictions for her...." Obviously, the word the writer meant was "afflictions." And here's one of her recurring misuses of nominative case in place of subjective: "... she had to if she was to keep both he and Reggie safe," when obviously, the word needed was "him."

These errors are forgivable in narrative but less so in spoken speech, because a duke and duchess of the era would have been schooled in proper grammar. Each time, it pulled me out of the story and forced me to think about the grammar.

Nonetheless, I was rooting for Daniel and Eva and was pleased with their happy ending. I also really enjoyed the dowager grandmother.

HASH(0x9b2cb264) von 5 Sternen Good idea, poorly executed 23. September 2013
Von minnie winnie - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition
I purchased this book because the synopsis really appealed to me. I liked the idea of the characters being forced to wed early in the story and the feelings gradually growing so I will give the author points for concept.

Sadly the story was so poorly executed that it spoilt the whole thing for me. I won't belabour the plot as it is pretty much as set out in the synopsis: duke, Daniel, forced into marriage with Eva due to an agreement his cruel father made to avoid a gambling debt. The pair get off to a rocky start but feelings quickly (too quickly) develop.

I didn't really feel any connection to the characters as I didn't think they were particularly well drawn; I had no real sense of either other than Daniel: grumpy Eva: timid. It made it hard to invest in the story.

Another issue was the lack of attention to detail and historical accuracy. At one point, Eva-now a duchess-is informed that she has a guest which apparently her servants let in without getting his name, finding out if Eva was 'at home' etc. I know this seems minor but little things like this really big me. The more ridiculous detail however was that said guest was a friend of her fathers who apparently decided to drop in to try and force himself on her. Randomly. And this is the first of a number of attacks on poor Eva, I really had no idea duchesses were quite so vulnerable.

The story races through a rather limited and rushed plot involving Eva's horrible family trying to extort money from her. Of course being a sensible female, and aware of her exalted position in society Eva promptly informs her powerful husband and it is speedily resolved. No wait, she stupidly accedes to every demand and tells the Duke nothing, for apparently no reason but to create unnecessary drama in the story.

Things go from bad to worse when SPOILERS......
her estranged family and her earlier attacker decide to have the Duke killed. At this point I was ready to abandon the story completely. In what possible world would this be a remotely sensible plan? An even cursory knowledge of the British rules of primogeniture would tell you that this would not do Eva or her grasping family any good. The Dukes assets, possibly save for a small stipend, would pass to the next male relative-something her family would be well aware of.

Finally the whole thing descends into farce whereby her family is dealt with by a few punches from the Duke and the evil attacker is dispatched following a duel which takes place in the middle of a house. With a ball going on a few feet away.

All in all very disappointed in this story. I really can't give it more than one star, and that is more for the idea than anything else.

HASH(0x9891c03c) von 5 Sternen Not horrible, not great. 18. August 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
For me, the author's writing style was a bit stilted and didn't really bring me into the story. Several parts were kind of boring and didn't hold my interest. Also, it drove me crazy how the H & h constantly referred to each other as Duke and Duchess, Hello, Duke. How are you, Duchess? Do you like my kisses, Duchess? I'm fine, Duke. etc... There were a few other things that kind of threw me, like the butler serving and attending them at their meals, refilling their teapot, etc... I'm pretty sure that wasn't a butler's job. Also, only a handful of servants at the huge country estate of a wealthy Duke, huh? I think the plot was a fairly good premise, but the overall writing style and inaccuracies kind of ruined it for me.
