    1. I’m not sure why I enjoyed this one as much as I did. I guess I just loved the interactions and relationship of Ross and Addy. Addy has decided that she never wants to marry and in her spare times helps gentlemen learn how to behave like gentlemen. Ross is sent to London in the midst of war directly to Addy’s care, she is to help turn him into a proper gentlemen. I liked that their relationship grew at a natural pace. While they were attracted to one another from the beginning, it wasn’t o [...]


    2. More of a 3+ story. On the better end of the traditional Regency spectrum. Ross is a great H who lacks pretentious lordly airs, but carries a natural nobility and commanding presence following his many years in military service. He's also not afraid to go after what he wants, and his pursuit of the seemingly reluctant (but secretly delighted) Addie is enjoyable. The romance plot is set against a historically stretched recall vote of Wellington, for which Ross (newly and reluctantly named viscoun [...]


    3. This was a fun book with fun characters. I like the leading lady to have spirit and the way she fights back is great. I like the story line and the execution was well done. It is a simple love story with a little irritating bad guy that our hero and heroine has very little trouble with. I like my regency's to be very clean and this one had a scene where the couple go a little farther then kissing and I was so sad. I can't really recommend it because of that.


    4. I read this after /book/show/2 because I had heard they were similar story lines. This one wasn't as clean or proper. It tried much harder to be closer to a steamy romance novel with lots of military talk and terms. I liked Ross and even Addy more or less but not much happens in the story as a whole (despite its length). Found myself curious about some of the other characters back stories but you never find out details about them. The idea that this entire novel is with Addy only in the company [...]


    5. Note: This is a review of an E-book edition of 2000 release under the name Carolyn Madison. This version of My Fair Lady with genders reversed and thankfully, no high pitched wailing over taking a bath, is absolutely wonderful. I did not want this book to end. Is there a more eloquent praise, if so, it eludes me. His uncle had no grounds for breaking the entailment so Sgt. Maccailan IS Viscount St. Jerome, whether he wants to be or not. Ross is definitely a man that understands strategy and hold [...]


    6. Ross MacCailan is a soldier fighting in Spain when he learns that his uncle has died making him the new Viscount St. Jerome. At first, Ross wants nothing to do with his uncle's wealth or title but when Wellington commands Ross to go to London to fight in the House of Lords, Ross has no choice but to obey. Wellington commands Ross to an A. Terrington in London, who will help Ross learn to be a gentleman. Ross has no interest in becoming a mindless member of the ton, especially not when he learns [...]


    7. PG13, surprisingly.I'm a behind the scenes, fade-to-black type of romance reader. I'm just not interested in where mouths and hands go, and arching backs. This was my first Joan Overfield book, and I'm not going back. I didn't think it was that well-written, the editing was off (I read it on Kindle, a lot of missing words, miss-spells), and I didn't appreciate the sexual details, however slight they might be. (I generally stay away from romance books where the author's name is written in larger [...]


    8. Warning, this does have one to two paragraphs 3/4 of the way in with brief improper kissing and petting that was truly unnecessary and quickly interrupted. Thus only four stars because the fact remains that this is a delightful story and clean in every other way.


    9. I thought this one was cute and I enjoyed reading it. There was nothing amazing about it but it was still an enjoyable story.
