Kurzbeschreibung

Although this book is part of a trilogy, each book is a stand-alone story in its own right.

Lord Michael Dunham is bored of Society, bored of fickle women, but above all that, he is afraid. His father suffered from madness and Michael is terrified that he will inherit the same affliction. He scrutinises his every mood swing, his every expression, to see if he can detect any signs that he is developing the symptoms. It blights his life. He has determined that he will never marry, putting a wife through the same that his mother suffered and he certainly will never have children. The disease will die with him.

Miss Elizabeth Rufford is a young lady who is more comfortable managing an estate as far away from Society as she can possibly be. She would rather being planting crops, than dancing a Quadrille, rather be building walls, than playing cards. She did not seek a London season when she came out of the schoolroom and would be happy never to visit the capital.

A line in a will force the two together. Lord Dunham is Elizabeth’s guardian whether she likes it or not, and she really does not like it! Bounding into his life in the most outrageous way possible, Elizabeth makes an impact she never intended to. Michael is drawn to the feisty woman and suddenly finds that it is hard to fight one’s demons when Elizabeth Rufford is a part of your life.

in der tata waqr das lesen dieses buches unbequem. die rezensenten auf amazon.com haben recht, es ist ein ungewöhnliches buch, aber wenn halbe sätze fehlen oder hin und wieder das verb, wenn kommata willkürlich gesetzt werden und der sinn des satzes dadurch zum rätsel wird, kostet das mindestens einen stern.
die serie ist für jeden interessant, der nicht an solchen kleinigkeiten hängt.

Dies ist ein sehr durchschnittliche Geschichte. Wer sonst nicht viel liest und einfach nur gemütlich abschalten möchte, dem könnte das Buch gefallen. Man braucht etwas Geduld beim Lesen, denn das Tempo geht sehr gemächlich voran. Wer allerdings viele Regency-Storys zum Vergleich gelesen hat, wird hier nichts aufregend Neues entdecken.
Hier verliebt sich über einen Zeitraum von ca. 5 Monaten der 27jährige Lord Michael Dunham in sein Mündel Miss Elizabeth Rufford, der noch ein halbes Jahr zur Volljährigkeit (mit 21) fehlt. Elizabeth ist eine ehrliche, aufgeschlossene und tatkräftige Person mit Witz und kleidet sich entgegen der gesellschaftlichen Etikette in Hosen.
Bei etwas einem Drittel des Buches merkt sie, dass sie sich verliebt hat, doch sie wird von Dunham immer wieder zurückgewiesen. Das geht wirklich bis zum allerletzten Kapitel so. Er will nicht heiraten und keine Kinder, da er Angst vor einer bestimmten Sache hat, mehr verrate ich nicht. Bis auf zwei heimliche Küsse gab es keine Leidenschaft zu lesen, darum konnte man die Chemie zwischen den beiden bloß erahnen.
Nach zwei Dritteln tauchten auch noch geldgierige Verwandte auf und bedrohten die Idylle. Das sollte für etwas Spannung sorgen, hat mich aber zwischenzeitlich in Versuchung gebracht, das Buch abzubrechen. Ich habe zwar doch noch bis zum Ende durchgehalten, doch richtig fesseln konnte es mich nicht. "The Captain's Wallflower" von A. Harrison hat mir da viel besser gefallen und war origineller.

I've only got to the fourth chapter so far but there is precious little happening. They've met and they've obviously already fallen in love. I've read most of Georgette Heyer's regency romances and I like the story and the characters to develop. So far I've seen neither in this novel. The characters seem likeable enough but everything else which makes a book nice to read is missing. There are no descriptions, for instance, the reader gets to know nothing about the surroundings or the people, they just pop onto the scene. I sincerely hope that there is something else to come because I bought all three books. If it goes on like it started I'm not going to make it through the first.

After reading it through it still hasn't convinced me. The love story is the centre of the story, everything else is cut very short. There is no developing of characters, a lot of misunderstandings which don't seem very probable and too many of the persons' thoughts are laid open. Nothing is left to imagination and I personally think that the characters don't even stay true to themselves. The heroine changes from a shy country girl to a passionate, sexy woman and back to an insecure and unhappy country maiden - this is not convincing.

i bought this book today, hoping for a nice reading afternoon in the garden. I read a third of it and then deleted it from my kindle.
If you learned to appreciate Regency romances by reading Georgette Heyer, the emptiness of this book is hitting you over the head in a very short time. There is no character development, no athmosphere, no real insight in the time she is writing about.

(Not to mention the blatant lack of proofreading. I am German, but even i could see that grammar and punctuation leave a lot to be desired.)

I am not going to touch any of her other books.

***

Ich habe dieses Buch heute gekauft, weil ich auf einen angenehmen Lese-Nachmittag im Garten gehofft habe. Ich habe ein Drittel des Buchs gelesen und es dann vom Gerät gelöscht.
Wenn man durch Georgette Heyer zu Regency-Romanen gekommen ist, ist dieses Buch ein Gegenbeispiel dafür, wie ein solcher Roman eben nicht sein sollte. Es gibt keine Entwicklung der Charactere, keine Athmosphäre, keine spürbare Vertrautheit mit der Zeit, über die die Autorin schreibt.

(Die vielen Grammatik- und Interpunktionsfehler hätte ich bei einem gut geschriebenen Buch gern übersehen - hier nicht.)

Ich werde von dieser Autorin nichts mehr lesen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Surprised me in a good way 28. Juni 2014
Von katie kofemug - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Gorgeous covers, engaging characters, well paced story telling, creative dialog, attention to detail, plus darling secondary characters with villains that are really rotten earn these books Precious Space on my Keeper's List.

Opens in January 1815 with these words: "Lord Dunham was bored. In fact he was bored, bored, bored." First line made me laugh. How many times have we read this in Traditional Romances? Usually it's implied, or tarted up as ennui ::yawn:: In Traditional Romance, this is an air horn proclaiming: Already fitted for the parson's mousetrap and hasn't a hope in hell of avoiding it!

Ms. Harrison starts off with the feeling of a romp, despite the subtle mention of madness and a woman wearing breeches. But before the first chapter concludes you know she's teasing you. Elizabeth wants to return to the country, to have an estate of her own instead of managing her cousin's since he inherited her father's title, estate and married; the new wife does not like or want to be burdened with Elizabeth. Michael by virtue of his name has inherited guardianship but after a hilarious initial interview with is new ward, suggests a compromise. A season in London and if at the end she still wants the estate more than marriage, they will work it out. Seeing the reasonableness of truly knowing what is out there versus dismissing what she thinks society is, Elizabeth agrees. She doesn't ram her opinions down his throat. He doesn't come over arrogant and superior.

They discuss the issues. They come to an accord. They laugh together. I wanted to weep with relief! I liked this book, mostly for the delightful friendship that develops between Elizabeth and Michael. They were exceptionally well attuned and not willing to let go of that, even if it hurt.

This is a cute book. It was easy to read, clean, and entertaining. Don't hesitate to buy this novel. It will be a nice way to spend your afternoon! Read this one first and then follow up with the next two books in the trilogy.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Very Cute Story with Great H/h 1. Juli 2014
Von Judge Tabor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I enjoyed reading this story and thought the primary characters were somewhat interesting. I have a weakness for the Guardian/Ward historical romance novels so decided to purchase this one and become familiar with this writer.

In this story, Lord Michael Durham's deceased father had suffered from a case of assumed madness. Of course in those days, little was known about the mind and the causes that led one to have mental issues. Therefore, it was widely held that the offspring of these folks, were also susceptible to what was often termed madness. Although many people in society were aware of Durham's father's issues, he had been dead for some years, so little was made of it. For Michael, he enjoyed his country home, didn't care much for the London Season and had decided he would never marry lest the same issues which befell his father came upon him.

Then, the lovely Elizabeth entered into his well ordered and well thought out life. He didn't want this ward foisted upon him but it seemed the guardianship of Elizabeth was part and parcel of everything else he inherited from his uncle including his title. For Elizabeth's part, she was accustomed to running her cousin's estate, had a small dowry and when her cousin's wife pushed her out, the thought foremost in her mind was to persuade her guardian to allow her to spend her dowry on a small estate in the country that she could call her own. Accustomed to wearing breeches and taking care of the land, entering London Society was quite a chore for Elizabeth.

From the moment Michael met his ward, hoyden though she was, he was more than interested in her and found it difficult to hold to his earnest intentions to never court a woman with the intention of marriage. Even though he was tasked with the job of finding suitable candidates for a potential husband for Elizabeth, he did promise her that if she couldn't agree on a candidate, he would help her purchase a small estate. Of course, Elizabeth fell hard for Michael but he was warm and then cool, warm and then cool, hot and then cold, because he couldn't bring himself to put her in the position of having to nurse him if madness should descend. He withheld his reasons for his cool behavior and this brought some angst into the storyline. It actually became a bit much. When villains descend with intentions to harm Elizabeth, Michael has to make some hard decisions. But, he comes through like a champ.

unimpressive. Potentially interesting story lines, but they don't hold up--the story ends up in illogical places. The characters are bland and not well drawn. The pacing is uneven-- sometimes not enough detail, and sometimes it takes too long to get to the conclusion. I read the second in this trilogy, as well, because I was mildly interested in the main characters of the first story (Inconvenient Ward) but they barely appeared in the second book--very disappointing. I do not recommend.
5.0 von 5 Sternen He didn't expect to have a ward and she didn't expect a guardian 24. Mai 2017

This was an entertaining Regency Romance story. The H is a Lord (the book did not explain what kind of Lord he was) who out of the blue learns he is named in the will of a man who had been a friend of his uncle who he had inherited his title from. Since they have the same name legally he becomes guardian to a young lady. They have conflict from the very beginning. She doesn't want to live in the city or become involved in society events. He feels obligated to make her stay for at least one season so he can see her married and no longer his responsibility. He asks his married sister to assist in teaching the country girl how to act like a lady so she can attend balls and other events. She soon realizes that the only man she is attracted to is her guardian. And, he starts to realize he is developing feelings for her which he has to try to squelch because he can never marry or have children due to a family secret he can't tell anyone about. He is even afraid to talk to his sister about it because he is afraid it will bring up painful memories and he doesn't want to make her sad.

The suspense really heats up when the h's cousin and his wife show up and claim that the family estate she had run for three years after her father died, and the cousin who was the heir had no interest in until the h left to meet her guardian, was losing money (it had been profitable when the h was running it) and they wanted the h to give them a portion of her inheritance to help pay the bills. You just know they are plotting something to get the h's inheritance and use it for their own purpose.

Will the ward and her guardian ever declare their feelings for each other? Will the evil cousin and his even more evil wife succeed in getting the h's money? Will the guardian arrive in time to stop the h's ruination? Will the h accept the marriage proposal from the man considered the catch of the season or wait for her guardian who may or may not love her?

This book is well written, there are a few editing errors but they are easy to ignore, there is one almost sex scene so the story would probably be a "PG" rating, and overall a very good story.
