    Traditional regencies are simply not complete with a generous helping of comedy, and thankfully there is plenty of that in this story The opening was slightly confusing, but true to this genre, it had a great comedic effect Lady Letitia was visiting her widow friend in the country with a side mission to see her distant relative greatniece, I believe Lady Gloriana Hemsworth Gloriana and her mother, the Countess of Faussley, had been living with some atrocious relatives, mushrooms as they wer Traditional regencies are simply not complete with a generous helping of comedy, and thankfully there is plenty of that in this story The opening was slightly confusing, but true to this genre, it had a great comedic effect Lady Letitia was visiting her widow friend in the country with a side mission to see her distant relative greatniece, I believe Lady Gloriana Hemsworth Gloriana and her mother, the Countess of Faussley, had been living with some atrocious relatives, mushrooms as they were known for wanting to gain entree to the haut ton through noble connections , and after her mother s death Gloriana had a very poor upbringing by these people At the tender age of 15, she was seen as a giantess 5 ft 9 in height and sensing that she needed rescue, Lady Letitia packed her off to an independent spinster aunt with whom she received an education befitting an intelligent woman Twelve years later, Lady Gloriana is now Miss Anne Hemsworth, esteemed governess searching for a new position Under much pleading from her contractor, she accepted a post to the Marquess of Wylington and his brother, twin boys of age ten who have been called the devil incarnate They, of course, do not prove as devastating as their guardian, Lord Letham, who had returned after his travels to investigate if his manager is embezzling funds from the twins, and can t take his eyes off of the alluring governess Woven like a web, none of the characters in this story make an appearance for no reason There are murder plots afoot, rather bad ones at that, and Anne s grasping relations appear as well to further their own machinations The twins antics are especially adorable, and incredibly ingenious, as they come to love Anne so much they threaten the household with pranks in case she leaves Lord Letham doesn t actually make his acquaintance with Anne until past 1 3 of the book, but their attraction is developed nicely and with much delight.This was a great read and similar to books by Barbara Metzger, contain much humor in inter woven plot lines and ploys especially Lady Letitia s matchmaking along with romance and heroic justice to the villains If nothing else, read this book for the twins, who are truly a most ingenious pair for all of their antics and wisdom

    Once you overlook the strong overtones of the I am woman, hear me roar message, you can enjoy the comedic entertainment this story delivers, if you are not ready to strangle the 10 year old brats the plot seems to revolve around I liked that the heroine was tough, I didn t like that the Hero was made to grovel so much All in all, a fun book Not great, but still good.

    4.5 starsThis one reminded me so much of Georgette Heyer s books and what I love about them Perfect blend of comedy and romance I fell in love with the twins I really liked the cast of characters, both primary and secondary. each was so well developed and fit the plot perfectly As I finished the last word, I realized I had a big smile on my face.

    Well, this was fun, well told and well written 3.5Gist a noblewoman sick of singing for her supper with social climbing Cit relatives who ve taken her and her mother in for their own advantage has struck out on her own and become a much in demand governess She s hired to bring twin hellions into line before they re packed off to Harrow by their guardian in absentia, a baron who served in the navy as a captain His wards, a young marquis and his twin brother, raise rumpuses in the isolation of Well, this was fun, well told and well written 3.5Gist a noblewoman sick of singing for her supper with social climbing Cit relatives who ve taken her and her mother in for their own advantage has struck out on her own and become a much in demand governess She s hired to bring twin hellions into line before they re packed off to Harrow by their guardian in absentia, a baron who served in the navy as a captain His wards, a young marquis and his twin brother, raise rumpuses in the isolation of their Devon home but it s time to civilize them Anne, the governess, has just the knack needed, challenging them with unorthodox lessons in survival, natural history and scientific observation She also develops a strong antipathy for the feckless, no show guardian The captain has yet to meet with the purported governess, but he regards her with distaste, assuming she is a light skirt hired by his useless fribble of a cousin for his own pleasure This dandy has been hiring and firing staff in his absence with his tacit permission He has also been gambling and spending money so freely, the good captain has hired runners to determine if he s embezzling income from the young marquis estates So H h are on a collision course and each is supremely well equipped to raze the other to the ground if need be.By chance, the very tall governess lays eyes on a very, very tall man in town and is smacked upside the head by love at first sight Ditto for him This bit was the only thing I wished wasn t so But they have yet to meet officially When they do, sparks fly.So the three lords of the title are not rivals for her there are two friends of the captain introduced in the beginning that led me astray but rather the two young boys who charm and challenge her and the third, big lord she can t seem to ignore.There are several baddies stirring up trouble to add to the plot The beginning was delightful, the rest fine but not up to the great start for me.Overall impression, I enjoyed reading this but I m not tempted to re read it, so not a 5 star book for me

    Quite a decent read, surprisingly so I had no idea this was published by Signet Such a sad day this line ended.My only quibble was that the first chapter ran on and on about the background of Lady Gloriana, with the conversation taking place between two entirely unrelated people who just like to gossip It was filled with information that was unnecessary since I skipped it and didn t feel the lack I thought all that was necessary was to say that Lady Anne was the daughter of some dissipated Quite a decent read, surprisingly so I had no idea this was published by Signet Such a sad day this line ended.My only quibble was that the first chapter ran on and on about the background of Lady Gloriana, with the conversation taking place between two entirely unrelated people who just like to gossip It was filled with information that was unnecessary since I skipped it and didn t feel the lack I thought all that was necessary was to say that Lady Anne was the daughter of some dissipated Earl who did some dastardly deeds and was ostracized That s really all that was needed But there was background as to why Lady Anne was residing with these Cits and the whole history of the Cits, how all the women are named Rosa something, etc etc All turned out to be unimportant, because in the following chapter, it s years later, and Lady Gloriana is now Miss Anne, governess exemplar and of independent means

    From the title of this book you may, like me, be a little concerned it is an erotic, kinky sort of historical book But not to worry, it s actually a cute little regency story from the early 90s and not a skerrick of bed play to be seen, kisses all the way, perfect for readers who do not like a whiff of smex in their books Two of the lords are little scamps that help make this a very amusing story I enjoyed this very much I laughed out loud numerous times and it had a lot do with the two lit From the title of this book you may, like me, be a little concerned it is an erotic, kinky sort of historical book But not to worry, it s actually a cute little regency story from the early 90s and not a skerrick of bed play to be seen, kisses all the way, perfect for readers who do not like a whiff of smex in their books Two of the lords are little scamps that help make this a very amusing story I enjoyed this very much I laughed out loud numerous times and it had a lot do with the two little lords What a couple of naughty little imps A very enjoyable book, which did descend on occasion into silliness, which prevented me from giving it a higher score, but very, very enjoyable If you re looking for a well written, cute, amusing, enjoyable little book, this is the one to pick up

    This was actually painful to read The first thing I noticed was the lack of commas it was quite bewildering Also, it was glaringly obvious that Ms Dolan was attempting a pastiche of Georgette Heyer s novels by the use of terms that I have only read in Heyer s work, but it was so common though poorly used as to stray in plagiarism I was constantly distracted by turns of phrase that I would have worded differently to make it flow better, or information that I would have let the reader wonde This was actually painful to read The first thing I noticed was the lack of commas it was quite bewildering Also, it was glaringly obvious that Ms Dolan was attempting a pastiche of Georgette Heyer s novels by the use of terms that I have only read in Heyer s work, but it was so common though poorly used as to stray in plagiarism I was constantly distracted by turns of phrase that I would have worded differently to make it flow better, or information that I would have let the reader wonder about to make the book less ridiculously predictable In fact, you knew everything before it happened who did it, and why It was almost as if the author wrote the book in one sitting without any kind of planning outline, and then decided to forgo the post written editing as well, leaving no room to concoct plot twists of any kind
