Pretty darn good, classic Regency Romance, funny as usual with Barbara Metgzer's classic puns.
I will say I thoroughly enjoyed this latest book from the very witty and talented Barbara Metzger. No other Regency author I am aware of can write the sweet and tender scenes all the while making us laugh like Metzger. Highly recommended as a fun read and one that will touch your heart.
I was laughing so much, I had trouble reading it. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Lord Ty, our hero, has a horse with an attitude as well as a woman, Delia, with an attitude. We get to know what Ty did not say as much as what is did say...all in the name of honor. Great read.
This story is about a wonderful man who feels a sense of obligation to the family of George Croft (George valiantly saved Major Lord Tyverne's life -- at the cost of his own, while fighting the French).
After recovering from his injuries, Ty heads to Faircroft House. He has read George's sister's letters and sees that there are things that he can do to help the family. First, he can marry George's sister (who is in a family way) and help ease the financial worries of the family. Things were not as Ty expected; Delia turns down his offer of marriage immediately. She is forthright in stating that she wants a marriage based on love, not obligation or gratitude.
Shocked by Delia's attitude, Ty is never the less taken with Delia's strength of character and attractive person and personality. Never having considered marriage before, Ty realizes that his offer was probably too crudely stated for such a gentle woman. He wonders what he can do to change things.
Both the hero and heroine are people to admire. However this story really belongs to Ty. Major Lord Tyverne is that rarest of men -- someone dedicated to doing the right thing in all he does. He does not take his military rank or aristocratic standing seriously; he strives to serve and assist others.
Many of Barbara Metzger's books are funny and light-hearted. This one has a bit more serious tone; I enjoyed it a great deal.
