A Clash of Hearts - Lucienne was positively outraged. The terrible collision with Lord Perry Wittenden's carriage had all but destroyed her own. But when the infuriatingly good-humored gent published a scandalous account of the accident in the local paper - in which Lucy was identified as a "shrew" - well, that was beyond bearing! Indeed, Lucy's every encounter with the man bred chaos, turmoil, disaster... And yet, Lord Perry was thoroughly enjoying himself. Lucy was the most temperamental, spoiled, and unreasonable young lady he had ever met. But her fiery spirit and captivating beauty drew him deeper into a raging battle of wits - and love was the grandest prize of all.

[...]This book is a keeper. Just imagine Meg Ryan as the heroine who is a sharp-tongued and fiery-tempered young beauty engaged in a battle of wits with Tom Hanks, the sweet-tempered and good-humored hero and you've got this comedy of love.
Lucienne met Lord Perry Wittenden when their carriages collided and her carriage was all but destroyed. She lashed out at him though the accident was through no fault of his. Later, he published a humorous account of the accident in which she was depicted as a 'shrew'. This was not to be borne! He became her avowed enemy. Naturally, at their every encounter,conflicts ensued. There was sparring and choas. Lord Perry enjoyed himself immensely by baiting the wilful, spoilt young lady. Unknowingly, he had fallen for this captivating beauty. How they both realized their feelings for each other made most interesting reading. This is one of Elizabeth Mansfield's best. I enjoyed this book thoroughly and strongly recommend it to all Regency romance lovers.Don't miss it.

A clash of hearts...
Lucienne was positively outraged. The terrible collision with Lord Perry Wittenden's carriage had all but destroyed her own. And when the infuriatingly good-humored gent published a scandalous account of the accident in the local paper--in which Lucy was identified as a "shrew"--well, that was beyond baring! Indeed, Lucy's every encounter with the man bred chaos, turmoil, disaster...
And yet, Lord Perry was throughly enjoying himself. Lucy was the most temperamental, spoiled and unreasonable young lady he had ever met. But her fiery spirit and captivating beauty drew him deeper into a raging battle of wits--and love was the grandest prize of all.

I read Heiress by Janet Dailey and I was moved. It kept me interested throughout the whole time. What was most interesting was the setting which is Houston, TX and I am very familiar with that setting. It's about these two girls that share the same father and one is illegitimate. Abbie Lawson is the legitimate one and she lives with her mother Babs. Rachel her half sister, was born on the same day as Abbie even though they had different mothers they were like Twins. Rachel has come to town to attend her father's funeral. There she finds out about the history of her father and his other family. Abbie is rich aristocrat who learns to be tame and down to earth while Rachel becomes self absorbed and in turn they switch places. Both of them fall in love with different men. They pursue their interest in horses which leads them to a devastating end.
