    I really enjoyed this story set during the Napoleonic Wars There is a bit of angst which I like This was of a traditional regency as the people acted correctly for their times and did not hop in and out of bed with impunity Well written with good feel for the times very clear descriptions etc The plot made sense and the pacing etc was good The hero was very noble and I uite liked him and the heroine was a charming sensible girl thanks willaful for the recommend

    25 well written starsThis is an early one of L Allens not uite as enjoyable for me It has the dreaded Big Misunderstanding that isn't resolved in a timely manner unlike her later books

    I loved this book up to 80% Then I hit the wall with the death of a good story plot device of the Big Misunderstanding Up to then it was charming humorous and one of my favourite story lines a plain Jane who is a lovely kind girl who is viewed by the males in environment as just a friend that is until our dashing hero enters the picture Her confidence is boosted he is smitten The last 20% has the heroine suddenly going from a perceptive clever mature woman to a girl blinded by her own naivety and assumptions The last chapter was half way through before this frustrating impasse was over I would recommend it but I would have given it a much better rating if not for the weak ending even though it was a happy ever after

    I just have to start this by saying that Louise Allen titles when not downright eyerollingly bad are also usually inaccurateThat aside I did enjoy the story of Hebe Hee bee and Alex I thought their flirtations delightful their wit charming and Alex's attempts to be a gentleman being overset by his sudden overwhelming attraction to Hebe amusingHowever the whole view spoilerhaving delirious sex and taking her virginity hide spoiler

    Old school with some classic tropes heroine Hebe is a bit bookish but beautiful underneath it all The hero Alex is a spy AND a noble scion Hijinks and misunderstandings ensue Their initial setting and interaction helps to elevate the book above the sometimes overwrought elements of the storyline I did NOT like the plot twists in the last half to keep them apart It seemed to me as if the author ran out of steam on real plot and inserted some half baked elements to extend the tension long enough for a book

    This was the first ever penny dreadful romance I read over a decade ago after I nicked it from my mum's attic collection although I remember skipping most of the romance related stuff to get to the part about espionage getting shipwrecked climbing mountains and outwitting enemy soldiersThe plot is still as ridiculous as I remembered except for the downright rapey stuff which I somehow completely ignored as a kid However it's a perfect combination of almost every Regency romance trope I've ever encountered love triangles arranged marriage lots of miscommunication letters that are delivered too late dress porn constant mentioning of the hero's eyes huge amounts of pining and of course the feisty female side kick for which I have to give the author some credit It's amazing how many tropes and implausible plot twists she manages to cram into the story The plot hasn't aged well at all but it's one wild ride from start to finish keeping you entertained through a mix of cheesy dialogue and unnecessary drama It is literature written for women with boring 9 to 5 desk jobs like me who want to shut off their brains for a while and as such it fulfills its purpose to perfection

    The thing that I absolutely adored about this book was that the male character was not your standard jerk off Alpha Male ready to dominate every situation and the female protagonist was not a blushing virgin who was all Oooh dominate me nowAlex was a perfect cross between Mr Darcy and Mr Bingley bright happy perfect at smoothing over an awkward social situation but at the same time devastatingly wealthy and a bit intense in his role as a British spyI disliked the name Hebe and I thought her family situation orphan raised by her stepmother and soon to be stepfather sounded like a pretty convoluted excuse for her to be allowed to be unchaperoned so often But she was smart and determined a good match for AlexThis was a fun read If crazy misunderstandings drive you crazy long after the couple has agreed to get married they are both still sure that the other secretly hates them then maybe you should pass Also view spoilerAfter Hebe's shocking miscarriage which brings them closer again I was surprised that the story didn't end on a solid note with her happily pregnant hide spoiler

    Did i enjoy the novel oh yes well done This is one of those regencies that straddles two worlds historical fiction and harleuin romance I was completely impressed at the first 34ths of the novel and how excellently the plot the characters and the historical setting was handled It felt real The scene with the french soldiers felt downright menacing to me and the aftermath was written with details that were not romantic at all and gave the whole story a harsh light that made the story come to life But alas towards the end the story started to lee towards the rocks of the standard regency romance tactics which left me a little disappointed after all that great work I wish that story had sailed a bit farther I would have liked to have seen where it could have gone Keep going Mz Allen

    Would she be his bride?Hebe Carlton had little idea of her own charm until Major Alex Beresford arrived on the island of Malta She made no attempt to cast out lures and treated him with warm practicality showing an insight and ability to read him that few others had managed His attentions made Hebe blossom and her stepmother began to entertain hopes of a weddingThen a letter arrived for Alex The proposal of marriage he'd made to another before ever meeting Hebe had been accepted at last He should be happy But now Alex could only contemplate marrying one person—and it wasn't his betrothedThe twists and turns that bring about Hebe's and Alex's joining are the perfect balance This is another Louise Allen triumph
