Good Story and Characters
Sweetest Regret - Meredith Duran

Georgina was the daughter of a diplomat - Sir Thomas Trent and is used to acting as his hostess. Then Sir Thomas has to travel travel immediately and leaves Georgina with house guests. To make it worse an important letter has been stolen by one of mentioned guests . Georgina must find said letter Lucas comes to help Georgina find the letter. Thus Georgina has to see Lucas again after he had broken her heart two years ago.Lucas had not only been handsome and charming Georgina could actually talk to him and they had spent a lot of time together until one day she found that Lucas was gone without so much as a goodbye. As they look for the letter Lucas and Georgina  find that they are still attracted to each other.

I enjoyed this story. I liked the plot a lot and this was well written. I also liked that we as readers got background on Lucas and Georgina. I like Georgina and Lucas and  was happy when the misunderstandings of the past were cleared up and the hurt is let go of. But I don’t think that  a lot of the flashbacks really added to the story. I liked the characters a lot as well as the ins and out of this story and I recommend.

A Lady's Lesson in Scandal - Meredith Duran

IN GRITTY, WORKING-CLASS LONDON, SHE DOES WHAT SHE MUST TO SURVIVE . . .

When Nell Whitby breaks into an earl’s house on a midnight quest for revenge, she finds her pistol pointed at the wrong man—one handsome as sin and naked as the day he was born. Pity he’s a lunatic. He thinks her a missing heiress, but more to the point, he’ll help her escape the slums and right a grave injustice. Not a bad bargain. All she has to do is marry him.

A NOTORIOUS LADIES’ MAN COULD TAKE HER FROM POVERTY TO OPULENCE . . . BUT AT WHAT PRICE?

A rake of the first order, Simon St. Maur spent his restless youth burning every bridge he crossed. When he inherits an earldom without a single penny attached to it, he sees a chance to start over—provided he can find an heiress to fund his efforts. But his wicked reputation means courtship will be difficult—until fate sends him the most notorious missing heiress in history. All he needs now is to make her into a lady and keep himself from making the only mistake that could ruin everything: falling in love. . . .

Fool Me Twice
Fool Me Twice - Meredith Duran

Olivia is on the run. She finds a place as a housekeeper in Alastair's house. Alastair is depressed and hiding in his house since his wife died and he discovered she had been cheating on him and spreading secrets.
I enjoyed this. The first part of the book is Olivia taming/coxing Alastair to learn to live again. And each coming to know the other. I liked Olivia's strength. She didn't care what anyone though of her. Her goal was be safe and find a way for her father to leave her alone.
The second part is solving the secrets that come out. There were moments I didn't like Alastair, I thought he was purposefully mean. I liked the Olivia could dish it right back and didn't take it.

Using this for the Virgin square.

Review: That Scandalous Summer (Rules for the Reckless #1) by Meredith Duran
That Scandalous Summer - Meredith Duran

This is my first Duran book. I picked it up from the NOOK store as a freebie....and now I know why. I wanted so much to like it, which is probably why I feel such a disappointment after finishing this book. I should have DNF it at the mid-way point, but I had a bad case of insomnia last night, so I read.

 

FYI: on GR, this book is often referred to as a Regency set romance (both in the book description and in some reviews). Uh, big old no there - the book takes place in the late 1880s, so that is definitely Victorian Age.

 

This book has more plot lines than it should. Plot line A is all about the Michael (the hero) hiding out in Cornwall, pretending to be a middle class country doctor when he is brother of the Duke and a well-known doctor to the poor and working class of London. Plot line B is that the heroine (Elizabeth) needs money to maintain her lifestyle and tenants/village, so she devises a scheme to host a house party with eligible bachelors for her to snare. Plot line C is a blackmail plan of Elizabeth's former lover to get money and rank from the Duke.

 

Any of these plot lines would work for the book, but the mash up of all three left this book in need of a purpose and direction. Combined with less than awesome characters and repetitive writing, and it was a never-ending drag to get through. I liked Michael. He had his reasons for hiding out in Cornwall and using medicine to help people. He was the only character I liked in this book. Elizabeth was a basic Samantha from Sex + the City with money problems and a BIG drinking problem that is never addressed in the book. The house party guests were horrible human beings, but considering their hostess was Elizabeth, I am not surprised. The writing was okay, with dialogue at times being actually witty and at other times just bitter sarcasm. Bottom line: I didn't believe in the romance or HEA.

 

1 star for the hero. COYER Challenge book 2. Summer Bingo square "book that has been on shelf for more than a year".
