    1. Joan Smith is a graduate of Queen s University in Kingston, Ontario, and the Ontario College of Education She has taught French and English in high school and English in college When she began writing, her interest in Jane Austen and Lord Byron led to her first choice of genre, the Regency, which she especially liked for its wit and humor.Her favorite travel destination is England, where she researches her books Her hobbies are gardening, painting, sculpture and reading She is married and has three children A prolific writer, she is currently working on Regencies and various mysteries at her home in Georgetown, Ontario.She is also known as Jennie Gallant

    2. ugh I dunno MC did not resonate with me, because she s just annoyingly naive she gets swindled at least twice in the first three chapters and stubborn when given a chance to escape her predicament she was like, NO IMMA SOLVE THIS MYSTERY I guess the style first person narrative, a bit like a journal with characters butting in to give their input on events would ve worked if I liked the MC, but eh.

    3. This is one of my favourite Joan Smith books It s first person, written in a memoir style, with occasional interjections from the other main characters as they feel they need to correct the record The heroine is a somewhat prickly and independent spinster, who has recently come into a large inheritance She occasionally gets the wrong end of the stick The hero is a duke, but is of an unpolished diamond than a Corinthian type They spar than they flirt Well, with these two, the sparring is the fl [...]

    4. I love Joan Smith novels This one had witty dialogue, a bit of mystery, and understated romance I love books with those qualities These are the same qualities that have me reading Georgette Heyer books over and over Joan Smith isn t quite a Georgette Heyer, but GH is the benchmark and Joan Smith isn t far behind.

    5. He called her a termagant she called him a rakehell And so it began a tender and furious tale of love that would simply not keep to a straight line A little deception here, a bit of smuggling there and some unpleasant, pushy relatives keep Priscilla and her Duke up to their feathers in larceny and love This is another gripping story from the doyenne of Regency romantic novelists So the flap reads And having never read Joan Smith before, I picked it up with not a little trepidation It sounded li [...]

    6. 4 4.5 Who says I hate first person POV, with Joan Smith I can take almost anything This is oddly romantic Read this after Endure My Heart, so the recurrent theme of smuggling could have felt overused however it was anything but Readers can see what Clavering is doing from miles away, but that does not detract the fun of the story.

    7. Great light readloved the wit and the humor The interaction between the heroine and the hero was so amusing and entertaining Perfect little read.

    8. Oh manMiss Slack s chapter in the middle where she sets the reader straight about everything was possibly the best part of the whole book.

    9. I don t think this was her best work It may have just been me I might have not been in the mood for this so I gave it a better ranking that I ought.

    10. Probably not the best Regency Romance I ve ever read but still a fun read with a few unique twists.

    11. There are any number of amusing moments in this book, which is about all you get I didn t much like the heroine and I don t think the hero did either.
