    1. This book was such an exercise in frustration to me. I was constantly distracted by the writing style of the author to the point that it completely derailed my enjoyment of the book.The author seemed like she had a thesaurus open and was using it with abandon in every paragraph. In particular, the author had a style of using a different emotive verb for character's speech followed by an adverb describing a different manner of speaking to the point it was infuriating and crazy distracting!This is [...]

    2. I enjoyed reading this book. I think the writing style probably wouldn't work for everyone, but it has a trad regency feel that I like in a regency romance.Unfortunately, the title and blurb are a bit misleading. The hero, Ben, really isn't that much of a rake. He's illegitimate, and that has affected him so that he doesn't 'spread his seed' liberally. He has affairs, but he is discreet about it and careful to take precautions. Charlotte is a virgin, but she's not as young and naive as the title [...]

    3. RegencyVery entertaining. The play between characters is delightful.Charlotte is content with sitting in the background watching her charges but Benedict sees through her carefully chosen wardrobe and becomes a pest. I know it is an usual theme but it is written with just the right touch of wit and charm to make it well worth the read.
