This is a great little story and a good introduction to the Castonbury Park Regency series. The hero is divine and the heroine charming. The love scenes are, um, shall we say not Georgette Heyer style. A little bit of sizzle. We meet quite a few of the upcoming heroes and heroines in person or by hearsay. Looks like being a lot of fun.
I can't turn down a book offered for free on the Kindle set in Historical Romance Times Past by an author I mostly enjoy! Its a short book (really a novella), but there's a bit packed into it and felt like the set-up that it (probably) was. We learn just enough about Rosalind's friend Kate and her family to know that when next we meet this family one of the daughters or the feckless son shall be ensnared in love's crosshairs.Rosalind and Fraser are a fun match. Rosalind often felt the more exper [...]
Flirting with Ruin is the first in the Castonbury Park series by Marguerite Kaye. It’s a great introduction to the series full of romance and passion. Lady Rosalind is a widow who is looking for a little excitement in her life. Her husband was puritanical and felt the marriage bed should be endured rather than enjoyed. She meets Major Fraser Lennox at a country party and finds out that passion does exist and she’s more than capable of it! This was a great short story and introduction to the [...]
This is a very non-traditional type romance that I'm not sure I liked, but I enjoyed reading. The heroine, Rosalind, is a widow who has been seeking scandal. The story seems to imply that she's looking for passion and adventure after her staid and boring marriage, though background in this character is very scarce. Major Lennox (Fraser) is just out of the army and trying to figure out what to do with his life. These two meet and have an instant attraction and kind of do the one-night stand thing [...]
This was a free ebook I pick up. I think this could have been a great story; it just seemed kind of rushed. While visiting family friends, Rosalind goes to the harvest festival. While dancing, she keeps noticing this stranger across the room who is staring at her. Eventually he comes over to dance. Just Fraser and Just Rosalind dance and then go out side for some fresh air. They get caught up in the "magic" of the harvest moon but part company. The next morning Major Lennox comes to Castonbury t [...]
A nice little Regency novella which opens the Castonbury Park continuity series.An enjoyable and short tale, I really liked and engaged with the hero and heroine - but it did not seem to me really that Rosalind really flirted with ruin that much until she meets Fraser, despite her saying so. There are sensual scenes from the very start.As it is an opening to the Castonbury Park novels, there were quite a bewildering array of characters introduced and mentioned, but I understood why this had to b [...]
Great short story. Early 19th century A war Major and a 26 year-old widow have a chance encounter and think they will never see each other again. They, of course, do meet again and their passionate affair starts. Since they are both seeking adventures, they decide to travel the world together Cute, since it doesn't push the usual "we are madly in love after knowing each other for only 3 days" > but more "we are modern people and choose to embark on an adventure together because we have amazi [...]
I think this is the first Harlequin Historical Undone I've read, and I read this because it was free and because Kaye's an author I've heard good things about. The writing was good and the introduction to upcoming series characters/stories/etc. was handled far more gracefully than I usually see it, but I guess I didn't see the point of the book other than promo for the upcoming series: no emotional journeys or emotional growth, no plot, just well-written character interaction. It was, though, ni [...]
Embarrassing RuinRosalind and Fraser have an intense forest meeting. Stifled by an overbearing and and then husband, Rosalind finds her life dull and boring. She visits a friends in morning only to discover her future. Fraser is finishing his last Order of business for the military. He unknowingly meets his life dream in a back town in England. A short funny poetic story you will enjoy.
Short read on Kindle. A young woman, a widow who has never had much fun, goes to the village fete and flirts rather scandalously with a handsome stranger.Imagine her shock when he appears at her home the next day to deliver news of her cousin's death in battle. The stranger is an army officer who served with her cousin.It was a pleasant short escape into Regency England.
A descriptively lovely prequel, that left me wanting more, and actually willing to buy the Castonbury Park Series by this new author (to me).I liked her style, and the way the flow to the narrative. Just a bit naughty, but still believable.For me 4 stars and the series will be going on my Wish List.
What a surprise this novella was! It is a sweet and hot love story between a widow and war veteran in the post-Naploeonic war era. The sensibilities are quite modern, for all the historical setting, but it felt possible. A good, quick read. This was a kindle freebie.
A short story that is part of the Castonbury Park story but adds nothing of inportance to it.Story summed up here: they meet, they have a tryst, he asks her to go with him when he leaves the park, she accepts. No conflict, no proposal, no wedding.
cute, sassy and sexy but far too short
Very quick and thorouly enjoyable. Can't wait to read the rest of the series.
This was a great novella that I found I liked because it gave you a look at that tryst you don't hear about in a romance novel. I would love to read the first book of the Castonbury Park novel.
A nice enough snippet, but not enough meat on the bones to satisfy.
It was a short book, but definately a good book
Gotta love this book there is nothing more exciting than wondering if someone will follow their hearts or not
47 pages on my Nook, enjoyable, the introduction of characters for the series is well done.
Short Book sweet story.
I thought it was okay. It could have been better. Some of the characters where quite annoying.
This is a short read. It's an enjoyable way to spend an afternoon, especially if you like Regency Romances,and I do.
This novella works well as an amuse-bouche for a new series of Regency historical romances, Castonbury Park. I am looking forward to reading these books as they are released each month.
This was a very cute introduction to the series.
