    " Charming historical romance by a reliable author. I enjoy related books with known characters and their friends, a nice alternative to sequential series. "

    " Cassie Fox, half French & half English, lost her family to the Terror. To defeat Napoleon, she becomes a spy. As one of her missions, she rescues Lord Wyndham, imprisoned for over 10 years. Cassie rescues Grey physically and emotionally. Balanced, competent characters in a well realized historical setting. A keeper. HEA. "

    " Mary Jo Putney is an excellent tale spinner. No Longer a Gentleman is not only a rousing adventure with a strong, brave and intelligent heroine (shero?)but it gives a powerful account of the psychological results of solitary confinement on a prisoner. Mostly, though, this is a fun romp of spies, subterfuge, and sexual attraction in Napoleon's France as (insert names when I find the book)rescues (name) and smuggles him back to England only to find more plots and mysteries to be solved before true love can triumph. "

    " In the last book of the Lost Lords quartet, the missing lord, Greydon Sommers, Lord Wyndham, was located and rescued from the private dungeon he had been locked in for the last 10 years. He would have gone mad if not for a fellow prisoner, a Catholic priest, who kept him sane by educating him and singing with him. But in those 10 years, he saw no other person. His rescuer was Cassie Reynard, sent by Kirkland. The rescue was easy. The recovery was not. You don't just leave solitary confinement without a few mental issues and Grey's were about crowds and temper. Cassie helped with both. This was equally Cassie's story. Although Cassie's family, half French, had all been killed during the revolution, she had escaped with the help of a nursemaid and though a child of wealth, was remade into a peasant of no consequence. She can't help Grey regain his place in society without accepting her own which she had been loathe to do. It turns out to be easier than expected. And more loving. Many things about this book were too easy. But the characters were so right for each other that it was easy to over that. "

    " Entertaining enough for this genre. Newish plot twist and some action/adventure keeps this steamy regency interesting. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Carolyn | 1/2/2014

    " It was good I think I just wasn't really in the mood for it "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Milena's Book Corner | 12/22/2013

    " I got to laugh a little and live in another time and place. "

    " Stayed up all night reading. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julia | 12/9/2013

    " This romance suffered in comparison to Meredith Duran and Joanna Bourne's rich, thrilling stories. Bourne's spy masters definitely trump Cassie, and for romance between troubled individuals, Duran did it better. Still, the moment when Grey hugs Cassie was lovely, and I was happy for them in the end. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jennifer | 9/2/2013

    " I feel like damaged characters like Cassie and Grey would have a much harder adjustment to society. It's also a bit creepy that he loves her so much - I wonder if he's mixing up his gratitude at being rescued with his idea of love. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristine | 8/26/2013

    " Very enjoyable. So many books from this era contain virginal blushing brides. Not that I have anything against them. But it's nice to have had characters who've had a life before they have loved. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 4/7/2013

    " First two thirds were very good, although predictable. But the final bit was just a bit unbelievable. I did enjoy it, so probably more a 3.5. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary Lauer | 9/19/2012

    " Liked the h/h relationship, got tired of the spy stuff. I did like that they rescued each other in the end. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robin | 9/19/2012

    " Loved it! Another winner for Mary Jo Putney. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Margali | 9/7/2012

    " Not enough interesting conflict between the characters. It's Putney, so it's readable, but definitely only once. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Julie | 6/7/2012

    " I was exspecting better and so I was a little bit disappointed. It should have been listed as an adventure book and not a romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer Eckel | 5/7/2012

    " Better than the Last Lost Lords book, a good story. Serious editorial lapses. When did London develop a skyline(?)and what church dominates it? Saint Peter's(?) I kid you not. What skyscraper did the editor fall out of? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Emmy Neal | 5/1/2012

    " I just love spy stories! This one seemed to run unnecessarily long, but the plot had great pacing! "
