    1. 3 Estrellas. Es probable que la valoración no sea muy acertada debido a las condiciones en que he leído el libro, admito que ha sido culpa mía. Es lo primero que leo de Elizabeth Boyle y aquí viene el primer error. Compré el libro en oferta y porque era el único que tenían de la escritora en la tienda, cuando vi que era el octavo de una serie, de perdidos al río, dije que me lo leía sí o sí pese a lo que podría perderme.Lo primero que me perdió fue el enorme árbol genealógico al p [...]

    2. Ahhh, Lord Langley. We knew we'd be seeing him again-- the international diplomat and spy who passed off his titled mistresses as his daughters' "Nannies." Like a bad penny, he had to turn up eventually, and yes, rumors of his death have been slightly exaggerated (although not for long, if he keeps digging away at the past). But he's not without problems; having finally escaped a French prison, he IS still living under the taint of treason, and with no memory of what plot he had uncovered or who [...]

    4. Le daría tres estrellas y media.Me ha sorprendido porque temía que al ser la última novela de la trilogía de las viudas Standon fuera una historia un poco precipitada. La verdad es que me he reído mucho con los protagonistas.La historia de Minerva y Ellis cuenta con unos ingredientes recurrentes en la novela romántica histórica: secretos ocultos y dosis de espionaje. No por ser aspectos recurrentes hay que desmecer la novela. Para mi, la calidad de una autora consiste en como "juega" con [...]

    5. I really didn’t like this book. I can’t remember having read her before, although the little excerpt in the front of the book was like “whoa!” in a good way. So I picked it up a while back, and finally set to reading it last night. I’ll lay out a few of the reasons.1. I disliked Felicity and the “Nannies.” I couldn’t get past how such a seemingly nice Duke could appreciate someone who is so money-motivated (and there is no backstory that would make me feel otherwise.) Her treatme [...]

    6. Wasn't familiar with this author even though she's quite prolific but I really liked this book and will look for the others in the series. Likeable characters and smart dialogue.

    7. Author brain glomming glaze in effect.As much as I love Elizabeth Boyle, I am happy that Lord Langley is Back in Town is the last of the full-length books in the Bachelor Chronicles for me to read. My brain developed a Boyle glaze over for a short while. Now, that may not sound too good for Lord Langley is Back in Town, especially when one considers I wasn't too fond of it the first time around. But don't get too excited because this time I liked it. I think that my change of opinion on this par [...]

    10. First of all, i have to say that i really thought _ after reading the first pages and being introduced to the "nannies _ that this book was going to be a disaster.I was wrong.It was worse.An hero that although on his forty e two years old, "sounds" like he's twenty. His behaviour could be described as juvenile and i never saw anything that would correspond to the title of master spy. An heroine, Minerva, that has an unlikely _ and far-fetched _ secret. It just didn't work. I wasn't interessed in [...]

    11. A bit boring, to tell the truth. I didn't like the Heroine (bit too uptight), and the Hero's rakishness wasn't anything new to keep me interested. The Heroine has a great backstory/complication for her present (view spoiler)[She's actually illegitimate. Her sister ran away with her regular-person betrothed, so her father shoved the Heroine up the aisle to the nobleman under a different name. Now, she's being blackmailed by her regular-person brother-in-law because she stopped sending money becau [...]

    12. Dreck. Utter dreck. This is an example of me following a romance author's recommendation (Julia Quinn), only to find that surely, this must've been done solely on a self-serving basis. Because the writing is TERRIBLE. Utterly horrible. I want to gouge out my eyes and unread the last 63 pages. Truly abysmal.

    13. Liked it--did not love it. It was fun to have Lord Langley as a hero since we've known about him from the first book in The Bachelor Chronicles.Minerva was not a particularly likable character in the earlier books, so it was nice to view her more sympathetically.

    14. Another great book from Elizabeth Boyle. What I liked about this is that the hero is in his 40's and the heroine in her 30's. The love story is a bit haphazarded but still is great. I would have liked a little more of Felcity and Thalia to tie the story up at the end.

    15. A romp through LondonLoved this book! Just enough twists to satisfy. Loved the characters. Alot of smiles and out loud laughs,made it an enjoyable read. In fact I have read it a second time now. Elizabeth boyle is a favorite. May she continue to write to entertain us. Love this series.

    16. My review originally posted on Joyfully Reviewed: joyfullyreviewed/new-rAll of London believes Lord Langley to be dead…and a good number think he might be a traitor as well. Neither is true, though someone has done their level best to kill Langley and frame him for treason. Having escaped a French prison, Langley is back in Town, ready to clear his name and reclaim his life. To do that, he needs a level of respectability, and how better to attain it than to arrange an engagement to one of soci [...]

    17. I reviewed this book for Romance Reader At Heart website. RRAH's THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS: For the last three years, Lord Langley has been thought dead, a traitor to his country, and now he is ready to return and clear his name. There you go. That's the main plot. Minerva is one of the three, and the last one of the Standon widows who have been given an ultimatum by Lord Langley's daughter Felicity to `get themselves hitched' or be financially cut off by her husband, the Duke. Well, the other two [...]

    18. Thus begins my weekend of cleansing my literary palate. After this, I have In Bed with a Highlander by Maya Banks, Scandalous Desire by Elizabeth Hoyt, and Suzanne Enoch's A Beginner's Guide to Rakes just came into the library. Since I finished Heart Search, I've been jonesing to do a Robin D. Owens re-read, but I'm going to hold off for the moment. Historicals are my books of choice when I feel like I need a break because they all blend together in my head. Truly good historicals for me are the [...]

    19. Elizabeth Boyle found that she had three Lady Standon’s who became widows and were left out in the cold when their husbands died before inheriting the Hollindrake dukedom. None of the widows got along so she decided to put them all in the same house and then give each their own love story. Lord Langley Is Back in Town[Image] tells the story of Minerva Hartley, the last Standon Widow.The other two Standon widows have married and Minerva is enjoying the peace and quite now that she has the house [...]

    20. Okay, so I didn't dislike the book, but it didn't work all that well for me either. Minerva was a nice enough main character, though I thought she sometimes had a bit of too-stupid-to-live going on. But not the whole time, so I was somewhat accepting this. And Langley was odd, but well, he had been hit on the head (and no, not as a child). Overall, I thought it was a bit unlikely. I mean, four of Langley's former mistresses storming Minerva's house and taking up residence there because they beli [...]

    21. Published on Life Between Books on 8/9/11From : Lord Langley and Minerva, Lady Standon, began their faux engagement with three simple rules set down by the baron's all-too-proper (and utterly unlikely) bride-to-be.1. No more kissing. The intoxicating kiss Langley stole from her lips still has Minerva aflutter.2. She will not share his bed. (For if his kiss is that tempting, Minerva doesn't dare imagine what a night in Langley's embrace will do to her already addled senses.)3. No scandals during [...]

    22. A good solid romantic read for me. Was it silly and unrealistic in some places? Yes. But it wasn't unbelievable in the world she built so I was fine with it. I loved the banter back and forth between the characters. Lord Langley was a great hero, and I thought the heroine was a good match for him in that she was passionate, but she was cautiously reserved because of a secret in her past.I loved how anti-climatic the revelation of her secret was for everyone but her. Sounds weird, I know, but I l [...]

    23. 2.5/5No me convenció, lástima porque hace tiempo que le tenía ganas a la historia de Minerva.No me gustó el que:(view spoiler)[*Él la pusiera en una situación comprometida y la forzara a comprometerse en matrimonio con él (aunque después acepte ella, pero la idea en sí, no me gustó)*Que todas sus ex amantes estuvieran pululando por la casa, es una situación incómoda. *Que la única "piedra" de su atracción sea que él esté "en forma" a "pesar de su edad" (y sus sonrisas traviesas y [...]

    25. I love Elizabeth Boyle and this book is a continuation of her Bachelor Chronicles series. Lord Langley is a rake of the first order; he had romanced some of the most beautiful women on the continent during his years as a diplomat and spy. Lady Minerva Standon is a very proper widow who had no desire to remarry. Five of Lord Langley’s former mistresses arrive at Minerva’s home demanding to see Lord Langley. Minerva informs them he is not in her house and she had no knowledge of his location. [...]

    26. The last widow of the Standons is happy. Darn it. She doesn't have any money but the other two widows have married so she's got her own house. Sort of. It's just been invaded by the former lovers (aka "Nannies") of Lord Langley. Unbeknownst to Minerva, Lord Langley is there as well. He is trying to get his things out of her house when he accidentally stumbles into her chamber. When the nannies (all of whom took care of Langley's daughters at various points in their life,) try to break into the b [...]

    27. It takes a long time to get started. The introduction of a set of atrocious "Nanny" whatevers (Lord Langley's ex-mistresses who are all titled Continentals) just about killed the book in the first fifty pages. Then there is the not-dead Lord Langley and his amnesia/the rumor that he committed treason. Then there is the Minerva's secret subplot which was unnecessary considering that no one really cared in the end. Then some odd subplot involving Minerva's aunt's husband. By the time everything wa [...]

    28. 2.5/5Minerva es una viuda respetable, una mujer de moral recta y estricta que vive de acuerdo con las normas de la sociedad londinense. No es feliz, pero tampoco se siente desdichada; lleva una vida sosegada, alejada de cualquier hombre, que lo único que haría sería complicarle la vida. No tiene intención de cambiar su estado civil, piensa terminar sus días como viuda, y es que su matrimonio no la proporcionó ninguna satisfacción. A la vida de la última de las viudas Standon llegará lor [...]
