The Dangerous Debutante
Kasey Michaels
0373771517
April 2006
Mass Market Paperback
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Unlike many of the RITA-winning author's nearly 90 romance novels, this winning Regency tale (second in a series) is no cheerful high society romp awash in amoral comedic characters. While the tone's definitely not dark, the mood is more mysterious in this story, which centers on the magnetic attraction between dashing and disreputable Ethan Tanner, earl of Aylesford, and wild would-be debutante Morgan Becket, whose unconventional family is unconnected by blood but united by terrible (sometimes criminal) secrets. Readers who enjoy Michaels's festive knack for exposing the foolishness and foibles of early 19th-century London's high society may be disappointed at the short shrift given the ton, as Morgan's debut season is cut short after a single delightfully scandalous ball. Substituting for the social...


The Quiet Gentleman (Harlequin Signature Select)

From AudioFile
To his stepmother and stepbrother's dismay, Gervaise, the new Earl of St. Erth, has survived Waterloo and returned to take his place at the family seat. His reception is less than welcoming. Here is classic Heyer, with a minimum of romance and considerable suspense. Indeed, there's murder in this rarefied Regency air. Heyer fans rejoice in her understated writing. To play the stepmother with a warbling falsetto and the story as a drawing room comedy detracts considerably from the characterization and historical authenticity for which this writer is known. Garrett is an admirable actor; his theatrical command of projection and accents is remarkable. A more measured reading would have sufficed to let Heyer's humor come through.

As governor of Nova Scotia, Sir Robert Kerr has worked hard to bring order to the Canadian colony. So when he receives word that a "bride ship" is sailing into Halifax Harbor, he plans on sending the shipload of strumpets back from whence they came. Mrs. Jocelyn Finch, the chaperone accompanying the ladies, not surprisingly takes offense at having her girls being labeled as "loose," and challenges the governor to a duel. After successfully beating Kerr at a game of chess, Jocelyn wins Kerr's reluctant cooperation for her plans to arrange suitable matches between her girls--all poor young Englishwomen--and the single men of Nova Scotia. Jocelyn does her best to include him in all the upcoming social functions, never once suspecting that Kerr might eventually change his mind about not being in the market for a wife himself....
