The Regency Era

Guest Author - Elizabeth Darrach

Hello, and welcome back! Old Man Winter hasn't quite given up his hold yet on our weather, but with the wind howling outside and the temps dipping into the 30s again, it's best to have a well-stocked TBR pile at hand. This week, I have the last of the March romances, and Regencies at that, so let's get started!

First up is Glenda Garland's The Unexpected Sister (Zebra). Lord Thomas Dashley returns from France, suspected in the death of a friend, determined to meet with the man's sister, a woman whose letters gave him hope during the war. Yet, while she's unwilling to believe him, her sister Caroline is. Caroline is even willing to help him uncover those behind the crime, and even more willing to give him her heart, despite her sister's beliefs. So much mystery packed into such a short book. Not a keeper for me, but an enjoyable read. This one's earned three of Cupid's five arrows.

Next up is Jo Ann Ferguson's Digging Up Trouble (Zebra). Lady Priscilla Flanders and her fiancee Sir Neville Hathaway are preparing to wed at his home--where ancient Roman remains have been discovered. Add in some smugglers and a curse, and you have plenty of mystery to keep this pair busy. What I didn't realize when I started this one is that it's part of a series. I'd have preferred to know that when the story finished, this couple would get their happily ever after, but that may be just my personal preference. This one also gets three arrows.

Donna Simpson's Lord Pierson Reforms (Zebra) is next. Miss Amy Corbett is to chaperone Lady Rowena Revington, the object of Dante Delacourt's desire. Of course, Rowena turns out not to be such a wonderful catch, but Viscount Pierson finds himself in deep before too long--and longing instead for Amy. This one was fun, and you'll be rooting for Amy and Dante, too. This one gets three and a half arrows.

Finally, we have the anthology My Favorite Rogue (Zebra), with tales from Lynn Collum, Victoria Hinshaw, and Debbie Raleigh. In "Reforming a Rogue," Serena Morgan feels she must stop her cousin Jane from becoming involved with Viscount Durwyn, a terrible rake. Though she doesn't plan on becoming involved with this rogue herself, hearts do as they will. In "The Tables Turned," Anne Talcott is certain that rakish Lord Daniel Dashworth can't make her admit she wants adventure. She just wants to wed and be settled. Dash isn't expecting to realize he wants what she wants, and with her. In "Marlow's Nemesis," Charlotte Rowe has been a thorn in Lord Robert Marlow's side since they were children, and now she's trying to convince the woman he wants to marry that he's unsuitable. This anthology is fun, though at times, it feels as if the stories could be longer. I'm giving it three and a half arrows as well.

Until next time, happy reading!
