Oh Yay! What a wonderful book! The Mysterious Miss M by: Diane Gaston is very close to a trad. Reg. if it isn't one. I'm not sure if the subject matter disqualifies it or not. There are love scenes plenty since the heroine isn't a virgin. They aren't explicit in any way, though. This beautiful love story revives the romantic in me. After reading too many contemp. suspense/erotica titles it was needed.
Madeline (Maddie) is as innocent as a gambling prize can be. Devlin is a wonderfully real man making some foolish mistakes out of love and lack of experience. He scrambles for all he is worth to find solutions to the problems of those he loves. I had to go kiss my husband in his sleep at the thought of him facing a similar situation.
There is very little angst between the h/h. Some but very little. The enemies are from outside. A Harl. Hist. Regency, I probably would never have read it if it hadn't been recommended to me.

An excellent and emotional read about a woman caught up in protitution and the soldoer, back from the Napoleonic War, trying to save her.

I really enjoyed this.

Not your typical regency. Miss England is a lady who's fallen from grace. She's working as a prostitute when she meets Devlin - who rescues her. I could have skipped reading this one. Not my thing. Not cause her lifestyle, she was just so downbeat.

Author: Diane Gaston (aka Diane Perkins)

Interesting bk, though not a keeper for me. The heroine is a prostitute, very unusual for a romance. My copy is a Mills and Boon edition.

"The Regency underworld-- sex, scandal, and redeeming love! The Mysterious Miss M is a living male fantasy-- alluring, sensual, masked. But when Lord Devlin Steele finds himself responsible for her-- and her child-- he comes to know the real Maddy: the loving, passionate woman who drives away the nightmare of the Waterloo battlefield.

But the aristocratic soldier can't support his new family. He will only inherit his fortune on marriage to a suitable lady-- and Maddy is far from suitable. With the dangers of London's underworld closing in, how can he protect the woman he has come to love?"

Great Read!!!

Have not been disappointed by any of the Gaston aka Perkins books yet.

Read them all!

They are not easy to find, in my area anyway.

Harlequin Historical romantic fiction..set in Regency England 1812

A very intense book, startling and a bit shocking in what looks like an ordinary regency historical. I was very caught up in it, and though afterwards I had a few waitaminnit moments, it certainly held my interest. We see a bit of the seedy side of regency town life up close -- forced prostitution, gambling addiction, alcoholism -- matters Georgette Heyer couldn't have gone near in her day. To say more would be spoilers.

Good story, altho I would've liked Gaston to tie up ALL of her loose ends!
