While the first book in this 2 part series was only fair-I had already purchased this book and was determined to give it a chance. Wrong!

The author took what seemed to be a "bad guy on the verge of redemption" in book one, and drops him right back to bad as book two starts.

This author shows no continuity with her characters. The H/H both start the book as seemingly OK characters, but quickly turn vengeful and mean spirited.

I quit the book in disgust 100 pages in when the hero refers publicly to the other gentlemen interested in the heroine as "fleas" and the heroine thinks it's funny:(-all the while his horse is trying to bite the other mens horses, yet he tells THEM to control their horses? This would have been unacceptable in Regency England and the hero would have been the one to control his horse or leave.

The author seems to be going for "rakish" with the hero, but it just comes off as a bully and a boar. The "revenge" storyline is always a difficult one to execute and if tried the hero had better have more going for him than Christian. Another irritating point was the rehashing every other page at how really, really good looking the Hero and Heroine are. It seemed they were all style and no substance.

This author has both characters behaving completely inappropriately for the time period. While I can overlook historical inaccuracy to a point-when it's nearly every page then it's just poorly written and researched.

The storyline is just too trite and immature. Like the previous book it just seems as if the author/publisher rushed to get this book out based of the author's past popularity. Which is the quickest way to lose faithful readers who do not like to be sold such a poor bill of goods.

Even the title "Her Officer and Gentlemen" has nothing to do with the book as the hero was never in the military in the first place!

I wholeheartedly do NOT recommend this book.

I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first, but Reeves is still a hoot, and the mystery of the twins mother is finally solved.

Good story line, interesting, multi-dimentional characters - Reeves the butler is a hoot! Witty reparte; keeps you interested; recommended

Amere whisper of the name "Gentleman James" sends chills throughout the ton (and thrills the ladies who have heard rumors of his amorous exploits.) But the dashing brigand never dreamed that the passing of the father he never knew would leave him with a title, a fortune...and a mission.

This book follows Her Master and Commander and is the story of Christian Llevanth, the Viscount Westerville and Lady Elizabeth, considered unmarriagable at 25. A good followup.

Book #2 of the Butler series and just as good as the first one, "Her Master And Commander." Great read! I wonder where Reeves is going now? =)

No ordinary highwayman...

A mere whisper of the name "Gentleman James" sends chills throughout the ton (and thrills the ladies who have heard rumors of his amorous exploits). But the dashing brigand never dreamed that the passing of the father he never knew would leave him with a title, a fortune...and a mission.

No predictable lady...

Considered unmarriageable at twenty-five, Lady Elizabeth has the perfect life, happily snuggled among her beloved books while caring for her curmudgeonly grandfather. Or so she thinks until she meets Christian Llevanth, the dark and mysterious Viscount Westerville, and discovers the delicious ache of desire. Elizabeth finds herself longing for more -- more romance, more excitement, and definitely more passion. But when does "more" become "too much"?
