Kurzbeschreibung

A JOURNEY INTO PLEASURE…
The night before dissolute Lord Denham is about to embark on his Grand Tour he meets an unexpected complication. In boy’s clothes that barely conceal her delectable curves, his childhood friend Lady Althea Curtiss – desperate to escape an arranged marriage – arrives, demanding free passage!

Rhys accepts his unlikely travelling companion with great reluctance – the scandal is sure to blow up in his face – until he finds there is far more intimate territory Lady Thea is curious to explore. Soon he realises that he is in danger of awakening not only Thea’s sensuality, but also his own
long-buried heart…

Historische Romance der Regency-Zeit.
Napoleon wurde soeben auf der Insel Elba zwischen-entsorgt, so dass der männliche englische Adel erneut auf "Grand Tour" auf den Kontinent reisen kann. Bevor sich Lord Palgrave auf Ehefrau-Suche macht, will er dieses Erlebnis geniessen. Kurz vor seinem Aufbruch verspricht er in betrunkenem Zustand einer alten Freundin aus Kindertagen, sie bis Venedig mitzunehmen. Lady Althea flieht vor einer ihr von ihrem Vater aufgezwungenen Heirat zu ihrer grosszügigen und fortschrittlichen Patin, die sich gerade in Venedig aufhält. Auf dem Weg dorthin gilt es, ihren Ruf zu bewahren. Doch ist sie seit Jahren in den Lord verliebt.

Die Geschichte ist gut geschrieben, eine Regency-Geschichte, wie sie sein soll. Schön beschriebener Beziehungsaufbau, schöne romantische Szenen. Aber leider doch sehr vorhersehbar, alles kommt ziemlich so, wie wir es erwarten. Insgesamt für mich zu eintönig.

5.0 von 5 Sternen another lovely story from Louise Allen 24. April 2014
Von Miz Waller - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
This was a delightful story. Different in tone and very sweet. The pace felt slow but in a good way. I truly felt that I was on the journey that is the backbone of the story.
Louise Allen is an automatic purchase for me and I have spent many delightful hours with her. I'm bad about titles but this story ranks among her very best. I finished it with a smile on my face. Thanks Louise.
5.0 von 5 Sternen Louise Allen is in a class of her own! 1. Juni 2014
Von Julie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Unlacing Lady Thea is a vivid, compelling and wonderfully passionate Regency romance from the inimitable pen of multi award-wining author Louise Allen!

Lady Althea Curtiss is under no illusions about her looks. She knows that she is plain and ordinary and not like the other simpering ladies of the Ton desperate to catch the eye of a suitable husband – and she has got absolutely no problem with that. Thea wants adventure, excitement and to be her own woman unhindered by the archaic conventions of society. She will only surrender her independence if she can find a man who loves her and respects her for who she is – and who does not have his eye on the fortune he will be entitled to once he becomes her husband. Nobody is more surprised than Thea when she starts being courted by one of the marriage mart’s most eligible bachelors. Swept away by love and rosy visions of a romantic future together, Thea’s resolves to be an independent woman begin to crumble – until she realises that her Prince Charming is in fact a merciless fortune hunter who had been colluding with her father! Heartbroken, furious and betrayed, Thea realises that she doesn’t want to stay under her father’s roof for a moment longer than necessary, so she flees his house – dressed as a boy – and throws herself at the mercy of her childhood friend, Rhys Denham, Earl of Palgrave.

Rhys has got enough problems of his own – the last thing he wants or needs is to get embroiled in yet another scandal! He’s already given the Ton plenty to gossip about when his fiancee had jilted him for another and since then his exploits and many casual romantic liaisons have shocked and titillated debutantes and dowagers alike. Sick of drinking himself into a stupor night after night and determined to put the upheaval of recent times behind him, Rhys decides to head off on a Grand Tour of the Continent to rest, recuperate and forget about England for a couple of months. Rhys hadn’t been planning on having a travelling companion, but when Thea turns up on his doorstep begging for his help, he knows that he cannot leave her to her own devices and reluctantly agrees to let her accompany him on his journey to Europe.

Thea has been in love with Rhys for most of her life, but she is very much aware that he’s never seen her as anything other than a friend. With his brooding good looks and generous spirit, Rhys was the kind of man who could have any woman he wanted – and he usually preferred beautiful and sophisticated young ladies rather then spirited and average looking girls like her. But thrown into close proximity together by circumstance, Thea is surprised when Rhys begins to look at her in an entirely different light…

As Rhys and Thea’s friendship gives way to something deeper, will they finally have the courage to face up to their feelings for one another? Or will their reticence and their fears condemn them both to a lifetime of loneliness and regret?

Louise Allen is on top form once again with Unlacing Lady Thea. Sparkling with searing emotion, delightful humour, authentic period detail, scandalous passion and nail-biting romantic drama, Unlacing Lady Thea is an outstanding historical tale that once again confirms Louise Allen’s position as a consummate storyteller who is in a class of her own!

Louise Allen’s gift for creating characters that leap off the pages and take on a life of their own from the moment they set foot on the page is unparalleled and readers are sure to love feisty, fiery and independent Thea, who is determined to be her own woman at a time when this was frowned upon. On the other hand, Rhys Denham is a deliciously saturnine hero with a heart of gold and a wicked sense of humour whose charisma and magnetism is sure to have readers reaching for their smelling salts!

Exceptional as ever, Unlacing Lady Thea is a first-class historical romance from a writer who just keeps getting better and better: Louise Allen!

So I was ready to give Lady Thea 5 stars before I'd even finished the first chapter. The rest of the novel did not disappoint!
I am captivated by Allen's dialogue. Her dry humour leavens the story. Smart and amusing lines such as when Rhys, in his cups, scolds the ginger tomcat for ungentlemanly behaviour is just one example. Rhys Denham, the third Earl of Palgrave is a rake, though capable of redemption. He has decided that it's time to do his duty and marry, but first he will do the Grand Tour he missed out on due to the war years. After all, as he solemnly confides to his cat, he is twenty-eight and will appreciate it more.
Lady Althea Curtiss, daughter of the Earl of Wellingstone, has known Rhys forever and appears at his bachelor household dressed as a boy. Rhys is five sheets to the wind, and 'thoroughly foxed not drunk' he reassures the cat. Thea is entrancing, winsome and a madcap! She is fleeing an unwanted marriage and wants to travel to the continent wIth Rhys and onto Venice to find their mutual Godmother, in order to gain control of her inheritance. The 'foxed' Rhys agrees. Of course their journey is littered with distractions caused by Althea's sense of adventure and wish to sample something of life, all assisted by a variety of humorous misunderstandings.
The thing about being an author is that you can locate your characters anywhere you want to. So Paris and then onto Venice! What a treat for us readers!
The dance between Thea and Rhys is highly amusing, each trying to ignore the pull of attraction they feel. As is their abortive attempts to not imagine each other unclothed.
Later, imagination became unnecessary. The witty interactions between Rhys and Thea remind me somewhat of some Heyer's writing with overtones of the ugly duckling.
As the swan emerges we applaud!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Unlacing Lady Thea 22. März 2014
Von Clare O'Beara - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Now Boney has been locked away on Elba, Rhys Denham, an Earl, is looking forward to the Grand Tour of Europe as an escape from boredom. He doesn't expect a childhood friend, Lady Thea Curtiss, to arrive at his home dressed as a youth.

LADY THEA has three seasons behind her, she's of intellectual enthusiasms and average looks, and she has a dowry but refuses to marry eager young men who don't love her. I liked the girl immediately. She's determined not to obey her father and sit as a spinster in the country so she hopes to join Rhys, unchaperoned, and travel to her godmother in Venice. Aged 22 she claims to not care if her name is ruined. Rhys is 28 and he agrees provided she travels incognito with her maid and tells her godmother she had been respectably chaperoned.

The journey is anything but easy, though relatively luxurious. Carriages, inns and boats help the two friends cross lands littered with returned soldiers wearing cast-off uniform. The worried maid mutters about "murdering Frenchies, sharpening the guillotine" but the innkeepers prefer to bring in money. The wreck of a diligence, a heavy French coach, shows how travellers were constantly exposed to danger on poor roads. Paris and Venice are glamorous cities returning to gaiety.

Thea is a sensual young woman who has read about marriage and has no intention of ending up as a lonely companion to her hypochondriac mother. She has money of her own, though access to it is tricky, and wishes for a life outside the constraints of society. She wasn't expecting to fall in love, and Rhys may be a good steward of his estates but he has a rake's reputation with women. Thea fast learns that being imprudent is dangerous.

I loved author Louise Allen's 'Tarnished Amongst The Ton' which also developed themes of travel and unconventional ladies of advanced ideas. This adult romance brings the European settings beautifully to life. It is great fun and explores the period interestingly so I highly recommend UNLACING LADY THEA.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Sweet and Lovely Romance 18. März 2014
Von Farrah - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
A sweet and lovely romance, Unlacing Lady Thea was a fantastic historical romance read. I really enjoyed this book, from beginning to end. It was just wonderful and I absolutely loved it!

Thea was a lovely heroine. After years of being quiet and meek, a forced betrothal was the last straw and she decided to take her life into her own hands. She was the kind of heroine that was strong in a quiet way. Not through obvious defiance and sass, but with her resilience through any situation she was put in. I really liked her. I thought she was a kind, quietly strong, and wonderful character.

Rhys was also great. He was very sweet and loyal to those he cared about. Beneath that shallow exterior of a rake, he was quite clever and strong. But, I frequently wanted to knock some sense into the blockhead. He was so blind to what was in front of him, which led to Thea getting hurt. He didn't just not see how Thea had grown from the girl he left behind, he was kind of derogatory about her when he had to remind himself that she was a plain woman who couldn't possibly evoke feelings in him. It bordered on being mean. That bothered me enough to affect my enjoyment of the book, so that's where I took off the rating. But, despite that, I still liked Rhys overall. When he finally saw the light, he was rather adorable.

The romance was good. Despite Rhys's stubbornness, it was obvious that these two were meant for each other, just in how they interacted. I thought that was sweet. And, the attraction between them was there from the moment they reunited. That let to some sensuous scenes. I thought they were perfect together.

The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way through. I really enjoyed the story and I thought the ending was lovely.

Unlacing Lady Thea was a fantastic historical romance. I loved this book! It was a sweet romance that I really enjoyed. Romance lovers, you definitely need to check this book out.
