    " Ancilla and Waldo are not names to spark romance but these characters still manage it. Despite the frustrating miscommunication, which I couldn't sympathize with at all, that prevents her accepting his first proposal, it was a fun read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moira Fogarty | 2/20/2014

    " Not my favorite Heyer - Tiffany is too much of an insufferable brat and marred my enjoyment of the tale; Lawrence, too, is annoying. I did like the heroine and hero, although their romance is quiet and simmering with too much reserve on both sides, and they are both obnoxious goody two-shoes. A governess who puts up with a female Damian, satan in satin, and a closet philanthropist who houses orphans with his massive fortune, but doesn't want anyone to know of his hobby? Yikes! Give me a rake and a fast miss any day. "

    " Definitely my favorite Heyer so far. It's the only one where I liked both the hero and heroine. "

    " Since Georgette Heyer is considered the mother of regency romance, and because Sourcebooks has begun republishing handsome new paperback editions of her books, I decided to try a few of her works. This one, one of her later books, features an older heroine (a governess/companion) being romanced by an older hero. But much of the energy of the novel focused on depicting (and condemning) the heroine's wayward charge, a younger, spoiled girl named Tiffany. Not one of Heyer's better novels, I'd guess... But Heyer's clearly a strong writer, one well-grounded in Regency period language and conventions. I'll have to try other of her novels before deciding whether I like her or not... "

    " I love georgette Heyer - her romances are fun and witty. The language and setting is much like Austen, but has a light hearted feel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 1/27/2014

    " Up there with my favorite Heyer books. The character of Tiffany is truly heinous - the perfect spoiled brat. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 April Reeve | 1/17/2014

    " Like Jane Austen. Fun. No surprises. Comforting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Megan | 1/9/2014

    " Ah, another witty and delightful Heyer book. Whatever shall I do when I have managed to read all of them? "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 K.V. Taylor | 1/5/2014

    " This book is actually really adorable and good fun, but it doesn't have much in terms of plot. I liked it more than the 2-star rating would seem to say, and laughed out loud more than a few times. Also, the characters were genuinely likable-- she definitely delivered there. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Erica Anderson | 12/29/2013

    " This is one of my favorite Heyers. It features an older, no-nonsense heroine, the classic sophisticated Heyer hero, and a young, spoiled chit to keep everything going and allow the heroine some clever one-liners. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer | 12/21/2013

    " I liked it a lot. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 12/17/2013

    " Had to stop reading this- just not as good as the other Heyer books. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Shirley Evans | 12/9/2013

    " It is quite a while since I read one of Georgette Heyer's books - they are so easy to read placing no strain on the intellect. However the characters in this book were pretty silly and a bit unbelievable. What tiresome lives they led. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nandita | 11/14/2013

    " Funny! and the second time you read it it gets funnier! :) Love Heyer! I always say, had I been born in her time we would have been BFFs! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joanna V | 9/26/2013

    " Enjoyed it very much. Really liked the main characters of Sir Waldo and Ancilla. Many interesting minor characters. Found the heavy use Regency era slang a little heavy at times but still enjoyed the story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marleah | 7/16/2013

    " Another 3 star Heyer. As with the last Heyer I read there was an extremely vexing, childish, spoiled, spirited and naive character, Tiffany Wield who just annoyed me. I was glad to see her get her comeuppance in the end. I could have used less Tiffany and more Sir Waldo and Ancilla Trent. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mia McCoy | 4/8/2013

    " actually reading for the second time...I can't help it, I love Georgette Heyer, yes they're romances, but i love the Regency era, and sometimes she has a great sense of humor...you just have to chuckle... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kim Ryser | 12/19/2011

    " I quiet enjoyed this Heyer romance. The romance was satisfying, with two likeable characters. I keep getting Heyer books that I think I'll read and then share, but I keep liking them enough to keep them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brenbren13 | 9/9/2011

    " Good book. It was slow in the beginning, but I got into it. I really enjoyed the dialogue and characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tressa | 3/14/2011

    " This isn't my favorite of this author's, but I really enjoyed it. I actually really liked the two main characters and how their relationship developed. There was also an annoying and selfish supporting character that gave things an interesting twist. I would read this one again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kathryn | 2/10/2011

    " A fun light read but not really memorable. "

    " Delightful comedy of manners. :) "
