WAS SHE FALLING IN LOVE WITH A MAN WHO COULD ONLY BRING HER HEARTACHE? Susan Henley had inherited the Highperch Cottage legally--if somewhat notoriously--and no insufferable baron would cheat her out of the dear old place! She would fight Valentine Montclair with every weapon at hand. But would she resort to foul play? Angry as she was, she most certainly would not.

    The third try is the charm! So after two attempts, finally a book that is perfect! The pacing, the length, the mystery, the villains, the romance. I truly believed that I already read all of Ms Veryan's goodies... Woah never been so glad to prove wrong. The third try is the charm! So after two attempts, finally a book that is perfect!

    Not my favorite Veryan, but still good. (view spoiler)[Too much jumping to the wrong conclusions about each other, from the hero and heroine. Also the hero never suspects he is being poisoned/drugged, when the reader suspects it from the beginning! (hide spoiler)] 3.5/5 stars Not my favorite Veryan, but still good.

    Although I enjoy Patricia Veryan's books, I often wish she would edit them down a bit. In this one, for instance, the hero and the heroine have misunderstandings about at least 10 different items. Laboriously, they straighten these out ONE AT A TIME. Come on, when they first realize that they misjudged circumstances, they couldn't correct more than one mistake at a time? 378 pages should have been 300. Enough said.

    3 1/2 Funny as always! I really enjoyed this, don't let my rating fool you. its just not as amazing as Sanguienet's Crown. But way better than most regency tales. Like other reviewers say, way too many misunderstandings, and at the end when you're starting your head wanting explanations for Adobe of the misunderstandings, the Hero and heroine laugh them off and everything is better. I was left still going, "wait, what? why did she do that?? why did he got over it so quikly?" I probably will get 3 1/2 Funny as always!

I probably will get it on a future reread Anyway, good continuation of the saga, I'm now rereading Lanterns as reading it out of order made me miss a lot. PG some swears, fighting, mention of mistresses and talk of furies.

    3.75 stars. After a run of lacklustre historical romances by Clare Darcy, I was so pleased to find Patricia Veryan. I forget who recommended her to me, but I'm really grateful to them! Historically well researched, the characters all have distinctive voices and personalities, and some of their antics had me giggling to myself as I read. The hero and heroine spend a large portion of the story disliking each other, but unlike with Clare Darcy's stories, this doesn't make one or other of them unlikea 3.75 stars.

I will definitely read more of Patricia Veryan's stories.

    4.5/5 Finally, a good regency romance after a string of disappointing ones. I'm glad to have discovered the writer. Had a good Georgette Heyer vibe, though a bit long-winded and over dramatic. I enjoyed characters, especially the villains. 4.5/5 Finally, a good regency romance after a string of disappointing ones. I'm glad to have discovered the writer.

    This really was quite a fun one to read. It was a fun adventure of pride, intrigue, murder and love. There was too many times to count that the characters had me laughing out loud (not to mention all the sighing over Priscilla's cuteness).

It was a fun adventure of pride, intrigue, murder and love. There was too many times to count that the characters had me laughing out loud (not to mention all the sighing over Priscilla's cuteness). Summary: The book starts out relatively slowly introducing you to Mr. Montclair and the little world in which he lives. You learn of his despicable relatives that have made living at Longhill Manor hell and that Montclair is suffering from a nameless illness of fainting spells. In enters Susan Henley, a twenty something widow of a suicide, with her five year-old daughter, brother, a ragtag group of servants and one cheeky Spaniard. She is claiming that Highperch Cottage belongs to her. Mr. Valentine Montclair thinks otherwise. Of course, a huge war for the cottage starts between the two. There is plenty of misunderstandings and their pride gets in the way. Upon their every meeting the complaints against the other become worse and worse. Susan thinks Montclair is a greedy, hardhearted ass while Valentine finds Mrs. Henley to be a graceless, rude temptress. Montclair, in mysterious events, is found on the verge of death by Susan and her daughter. Valentine's family ends up sticking her with the responsibility of taking care of him. He recovers... slowly. During his recovery both of them start to realize that the opinions they formed of each other were wrong. Characters: Oh god, how great were the characters. I loved that both Susan and Valentine had glaring flaws. They seemed very much like real people. There was even times during my reading that I wanted to reach inside the pages and slap both of them and make them realize how utterly silly they were being. I must say, though, that more so than the main characters I LOVED some of the side characters. Priscilla is by far one of the cutest children I have ever encountered in a book. Just read this:(view spoiler)[ "(Priscilla) lowered her voice to a confiding whisper. "The whole house is quiet. Hasn't you found yourself a wife, Mr. Val?" (Valentine) led her to the window seat in the front bay of the Gallery..."I've found the lady I'd like to have for a wife, Lady Priscilla. But I don't think she wants me, and at all events, the world won't let me have her." Still holding his hand, she gazed up at him. "why?" He answered slowly. "Oh-because it's a funny old world, my lady, and I must-play by the rules." She threw both arms around him and gave him a strong hug. "Poor Mr.Val. I heard the Bos'un say he wouldn't be in your shoes for any 'mount. Though I don't think your shoes would fit him, you know 'cause the Bo'sun's a dear, but he's got awful big feet. I'll have to tell him it's not you shoes that's giving you pepper...Starry says I'm not to say you name to Mama, so I 'spect Mama won't like it, an' we'll have to keep it very secret 'tween us. But I'd best sac'fice for you. Then at least you'd know you had a lady-somewhere..." (hide spoiler)] (Sorry for the long quote. I made it a spoiler just in case...and, by the way, when she says sac'fice she is talking about marrying him...) But can't you see how it's so easy to fall in love with her... Also, Angelo! Oh god Angelo. He is so darn cute and funny. I loved him as a character and thought he was so original and...well... odd. (In a good way. LOL) (view spoiler)[ His side relationship with Barbara, Montclair's sister, was so cute and refreshing and his surprise identity just added to his character (Even if I say some kind of surprise about him coming) (hide spoiler)] Conclusion The end for me was kind of rushed, but the mystery came together nicely and was explained perfectly so... I can't complain to much. I just felt that how the main characters finally came together was just a little disappointing. All in all, I loved this book though. The slow paced beginning and rushed ending were so small of complaints. The characters for sure did it for me with this book. I can't express enough how much love I have for Priscilla. I would definitely recommend this book, but especially to people that like a good mystery, like tension fraught romances, and the occasional laugh.
