Daughter of Lord and Lady Danvers, minor aristocrats with great pretensions, Rosalind is promised to The Earl of Frinton. The Earl is young and impressively handsome but has the most wandering eye for many counties. Unable to find any attraction for him, Rosalind seeks to appeal to her parents to release her from any obligation, but they remain firm in their determination for elevated status. Heath Rutherford, Duke of Langdale and veteran of the Napoleonic wars is ten years Rosalind’s senior. He is jaded, cynical and determined not to marry.

Finding Heath more and more taciturn and disagreeable in public, his cousin Hector makes it his mission to take away the rough edges of the years of soldiering.

However, with every meeting, their feelings grow and, try as they might, Rosalind and Heath both struggle to hide their emotions. Can Rosalind finally find the courage to rebel against her parents? And can Heath overcome his cynicism and finally open his heart to true love?

There are no repercussions or anyone catching them even though many people saw Rosalind leave the ballroom. Then the next page is epilogue. The story arc should have continued. How did the Duke's mother react? How did they resolve things with Rosalind's parents?

    I didn't enjoy it as I expected I was a bit disappointed with the book. For me the plot had potential but the execution was quite lacking. The conversations didn't keep my attention, some of the sentences were very simplistic. Seemed very inconsistent. The book didn't hold my attention from the first page to the last one. And in the end the sex scene on my opinion totaly ruined the book. I didn't enjoy it as I expected I was a bit disappointed with the book.

    This is a historical romance taking place during the Regency era in London, England. Rosalind is a firey young woman suppressed by the controlling rule of her parents, who plan to marry her off to the first young man with wealth and a title that comes along, regardless of her feelings. Heath is the brother of Rosalind's best friend's fiancé, and when they meet sparks fly. She can't stand him and considers him uncouth, but something about him draws her to him regardless.

Will she be able to escape the future her parents plan for her, and still live happily ever after? Will she end up homeless and with no way to provide for herself if she stands up to them? Or will the man she detests be her only chance? I thought that this book was a quick enough read, but it was rather fanciful and predictable, like you were reading a fairytale and knew exactly what was going to happen next and exactly how it would end. Even though it is technically "historical" by way of its setting, it has very little actual history or even historical accuracy to it. I'd give it three stars as a light-and-fluffy fairy-tale-like romance, but I probably wouldn't read it again.

    A very engaging story of a woman coming in to her own. The Courage Rosalind shows in defiance of her parents to fight for the love she has for Heath, brings her hearts desire. Thank you for a most wonderful read, Danny Scott.

    The dialog in this story was fairly stilted and rough. Several times the characters would laugh out loud at something that I didn't find more than slightly amusing. The plot was okay until the end and then she rushed them into a completely unnecessary sex scene. That really ruined it for me. The dialog in this story was fairly stilted and rough.

    **Special note** I agreed to write a review in exchange for a copy of this book. If you've never read a regency romance before, I would say, "Start with this one." Bridget Barton doesn't make cardboard characters. She takes pains to make you feel somewhat engaged with them or at least in the same room with them. I loved the interaction between the Duke and Rosalind. Sparks go off between them and it's humorous. If I may be fair, it reminds me very much of Jane Austen's book, "Pride and Prejudice" **Special note** I agreed to write a review in exchange for a copy of this book.

Sparks go off between them and it's humorous. If I may be fair, it reminds me very much of Jane Austen's book, "Pride and Prejudice" where her two characters "Lizzy" and "Mr. Darcy" don't hit it off right away. The attraction is there. The chemistry. Everything! The dialogue is fantastic. You just KNOW that Rosalind and the Duke will eventually pair up. The Duke and his sister have an extremely close relationship (which also reminded me of Mr. Darcy and his sister). So while the two authors and their stories are different, I still find striking similarities and I love it. Rosalind's parents are embarrassingly desperate. It's ridiculous. Rosalind knows it. Her best friend knows it. The duke knows it. And dare I say it, even the guy that her parents are trying to marry her off to is fully aware of it. In a world of manners, airs, and graces, a good man is hard to find. The duke is a better man than most of that period. At least, he respects her. Sadly, Rosalind's parents have more respect for a playboy than they do for their own daughter. I don't know about you, but I'm already looking forward to the next book. P.S. To any Christian readers, there is a spicy scene towards the end of the book. But at least it's short-lived.

    A sweet story until the very end when it suddenly became a bodice ripper. There were edits that needed to be made throughout, from typos to overabundant dialogue and too wordy descriptions. I wanted to like it, but was especially disappointed at the end.

The book is well written, humorous, and heart warming. I'm sure you are going to love it. Rosalind Danvers is about to embark on her third season. Her parents have made it clear that she would find a husband this time. She is not so sure. Her best friend has found her soul mate but Rosalind hasn't found anyone. Her parents arrange a courtship with the Earl of Frinton. He is handsome but she hasn't missed his wandering eye. How can she get her parents to understand that he was not the right man for her? Her best friends boyfriend introduces her to his cousin the Duke of Langdale. The man is arrogant and cynical and has no desire to marry. They are instantly oil and water. They are unable to have an ordinary conversation, all they do is argue but are drawn to each other. The Duke of Langdale, Heath, is ex-military and jaded. He was forced to leave the military when his father died at an early age. His mother is trying to force him to marry a girl that is only interested in his title. He is intrigue when he meets Rosalind, she isn't like any other woman he has ever met. Her family is trying to force her to marry a man unworthy of her. Will she ever get the courage to stand up to her parents? A journey full of pot holes in an established society. Others are trying to force these two to do what they want them to do. Can they stand up to the people they love and still live their own lives?

Heroine? I liked Rosalind who was very much aware of the hand she had been dealt. Plus, she wasn't intimidated by the Hero and wasn't afraid to talk back. Plot? Love Story? I honestly couldn't tell you when those two actually fell in love with each other... And I have no clue why the Hero didn't stop judging the heroine. What a conceited a**. Also, no clue why the heroine fell in love with him in the first place? Cause he was right in assessing her from afar? Cause he insulted her every time the met? Cause he showed no empathy for women at that time? Obv. Writing style? A lot of gaps, one chapter would end at a na they were attending, the next start ten days later. A lot of dialogues, which I loved. All in all? The end was too rushed. (For instance, we have no clue what really happened between the MCs' supposed fiances or how Rosalind's parents would react or why in the hell the Hero deflowered the heroine in a freaking hay stack!) I didn't really know why they fell for each other. The hero never redeemed himself for acting the way he did towards the heroine... Yeah, not my kinda romance story...

    I rather enjoyed the sparring between the Duke and Rosalind. Of course, all that anger had to turn into passion. Rosalind must find the courage to defy her parents and go with heart. This is where a more mature female does not lack, that Rosalind does. She is just eighteen and still clings to her parents authority. My problem with the book, the duke could have demanded Rosalind's hand and it would have overrode anything that Lord Slyther had done.

But the Duke begs Rosalind to tell her parents, and won't have her until she does. Duke gives credit to a naïve teenage girl, especially in a day and age where men think they ruled the world and women were made to stay home and be ornaments. Well, enough of the preaching. I liked this book and the plot and storyline were well written with the above mentioned flaws. Rosalind was a confused girl, who did not want to except her fate. The Duke was brash and sometimes very abrasive. It did not seem he understood how society worked and women have no choice. Lord Slyther, the name says it all. The parent were more concerned with themselves than their daughters welfare. It seemed the only person who was not self serving was Rosalind and she spent most of this book in fear of the future. This book says a lot about the vaguaries of society, and most aristocrats who ran England were self absorbed.

The characters weren't even sure they liked each other during most of the book, hadn't done more than kiss, and even their one kiss flustered the heroine so much that she ran away; then when they realize they do want to be together they immediately have sex in a stable? And where was a scene of Rosalind informing her parents that she wanted the duke instead of the earl who had been about to propose to her? Of the duke's mother finding out that he didn't want the young woman she had been pushing him toward? Of the earl's reaction to being rejected? Of the earl getting his comeuppance for being a womanizer? Even of Rosalind's mother being excited that her daughter was marrying a duke instead of an earl? Like I said, the ending seemed rushed.

The animosity he showed toward's Heath was far more than the lame we went to school together excuse. Again I wanted his reaction to being thwarted. The ending needs a re-write. If you can throw in a scene or two with Eliza and Rosalind getting to know one another that would be an added bonus. And Eliza the heroine for another tale.

Needless to say a somewhat unconventional type of romance takes place and these two almost adversaries find that one passion becomes exchanged for a deeper one. I enjoyed the shortness of the story despite the lack of proper development of it's character beyond superficialities for the most part and the surprise romance was no surprise to me and also well matched to it's owners.

The rest of the book was very, very good, and I couldn't wait for the fairy tail ending. But what it really felt like, once the big reveal was made, was a couple of horses or dogs going at it in a barn stall. It totally killed the whole regency romance feel of the book.

It could have been amazing. Due to the other 90% of the book being so good, I'm still giving it 3 stars, but I won't recommend it to anyone.

    A Good read. I got my copy from the author. It has a few negligible editing issues on the first chapters and the word "intense" have become redundant and the descriptive phrase "...like in a cage" was repeated. In a novella, it would be quite easy to spot redundancies like these. Other than that ~ it was Good, interesting even.

    If your a voracious reader like myself, this story will be a quick and enjoyable read. i finished it in less then 24 hours. It is a feel good, romance with Regency wit. The heroine is definitely better developed in the story then the hero. In the end, its the happy ending we all like. Just be warned, if you are looking for a steamy Regency this is not for you. Although there is some intimacy, it is brief in the story, but is does not lessen the story. As promised, the happy ending is satisfying.

That was incredibly unnecessary and a bit out of character for the lead. And it made her seem stupid to compromise herself like that in that era, she didn't know him well enough to know he wasn't going to just have his way and say tata.

    this was a very quick read I'm one that I enjoyed for the most part. the ending though was completely rushed and I felt inappropriate for the times. Well bred people didn't run out into the Stables and make love because they decided they love each other. They waited until they were married, it was the Scoundrels and the bad guys that did things like that. It really irks me when authors seem to think that people in those days acted the way people do in our days . this was a very quick read I'm one that I enjoyed for the most part. the ending though was completely rushed and I felt inappropriate for the times.

    This was a pure, unadulterated chick lit Regency. The heroine, Rosalind, is in her third season and her social climber parents are determined to pick out a husband for her. Her best friend is being courted by a young man who introduces Rosalind to his cousin Heath, a Duke. Lots of feistiness and disagreements follow. Anyone who enjoys Regencies knows how it ends. Thanks to the author and publisher for an e-galley for an honest review.

    This book was okay although the hero, Heath, annoyed me in parts, mostly as he was condescending to the heroine Rosalind. He gives her advice about telling her parents she won't marry the man they pick as she's not happy but as he lives in the same class he should know that women don't have the same freedom as men when it comes to marriage. The scene at the end in the stable didn't seem to fit the rest of the book, I'd have been quite happy for the book to finish without it.

    For a book that's under 90 pages took me 3 days to read. Long winded description for rooms and decorations and the non connection between the characters didn't keep my attention, I've read many stories with ole English an donor have a problem but with this one It made me tired. This didn't hold my attention at all from start to finish. For a book that's under 90 pages took me 3 days to read.

    Honestly loved the storytelling. The language was beautiful and the pacing was quick (maybe a little too quick) but I could not put the book down. I am going to thoroughly enjoy rereading it. I would have loved more description and a subplot, but that is personal preference. The story was very beautiful and I am interested in reading more of Barton's work. Honestly loved the storytelling.

    The Honorable Rosalind's Heart is a Regency romance with Rosalind as a well-written leading female character whose parents are trying to marry her to an inspid titled man. The Duke of Langdale is a strong character who has a less prominent role until the end. I received a complimentary e-book of The Honorable Rosalind's Heart from the author. This is my honest opinion.

    Well written book with great storyline and plot. A sweet book that has great romance. Typical regency story. Sometimes confusing and other times really great. It goes up and down. Has a lot of potential. There is drama, family issues, passion, emotions and some twists and turns. Instant attraction. Nice chemistry and passion. I like the main characters and how they develop.
