This is the first book I read in the DeWarenne Dyansty series. After reading it I am eager to read more in this series. A wonderful romance novel, I couldn't put it down. 376 pages and I read it in two day!

not gonna lie did not think this one was as good as others in the series. I expected there to be more story, more struggle, more... just more. but still worth reading once if you are reading the series

I absolutely loved this book! Cliff de Warrene is one of my all-time favorite heroes, even with all of his flaws. They make him more realistic. Amanda Carre was raised as a total tomboy, but deep inside there is a perfect lady. They are perfect for each other.

Well-written, but ultimately disappointing because it was so completely predictable. A fast, easy read.

I really enjoyed reading this story. I loved that even though she grew up with a pirate for a father, she still had a sense of innocence and loyalty.

This is a revisit of the themes from Brenda Joyce's earlier works, "The Finer Things" and "Masquerade." This book is a quick read, but "The Finer Things" is much better.

A Lady At Last (de Warenne Dynasty) by Brenda Joyce is a great historical romance with some great twist. Cliff De Warenne is the 3rd son and gentleman privateer. Amanda Carre is the daughter of a pirate (about to hung) and a English lady. Her father will be hung in the morning and she only has her body to trade for her father life. Cliff De Warenne saves her and becomes her Hero! Wow what a great romance - pirates, great romance and the fun De Warenne family.

Publishers Weekly
The latest from Joyce offers readers a passionate, swashbuckling voyage in her newest addition to the De Warenne dynasty series. This installment showcases Cliff De Warenne, third son to the earl of Adare, gentleman, privateer, notorious lady's man and, most recently, rescuer of damsels in distress. One such damsel, free spirit Amanda Carre, is left alone in Jamaica to face an angry mob after her father is hanged for piracy. The strong-willed beauty turns to De Warenne to sail her to London for a reunion with a mother she cannot remember and a rigid society she feels certain will scorn her. On the course of their stormy voyage, Cliff instructs Amanda in the art of becoming a lady, determined that she make a successful debut and land a good husband. Along the way, Amanda recognizes that her feelings toward her captain go beyond mere gratitude, and Cliff wonders if his fierce loyalty to the young woman runs deeper than he dares to acknowledge. Romance veteran Joyce brings her keen sense of humor and storytelling prowess to bear on her witty, fully formed characters. (Dec.) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.

Read The Conquerer First as that begins the DeWarenne family. Then read Promise of the Rose. Read The Game which brings in the O'Neill's. Then read The Prize. Then there is the Masquerade; The Stolen Bride; A Lady At Last; and finally Rex's story in The Perfect Bride.

I greatly enjoy the DeWarenne stories!
