I HAVE FOUND A NEW FAVORITE REGENCY AUTHOR! SHE PUTS A STRONG WILLED WOMAN AGAINEST A STRONG-WILLED MAN THAT HAS NEVER LOST A "LOVE WAR."
I LAUGHED OUT LOUD AT THE EVENTS IN THIS BOOK AND WAS SORRY THAT IT ENDED. I HAVE THE NEXT BOOK IN THE SEQUENCE ON THE WAY! IT IS THAT GOOD. :}
This is the first book in a series of 7. The first I have read by this author and will not be the last! I thought this book was great! The characters were smart, funny, and witty! Will have you laughing out loud! I throughly enjoyed it and can't wait to get the next one!
Enjoyable read but not worthy of the gushing reviews. All the characters speak to each other in a manner that seems very frank and with overt sexuality that seems out of place for the times. There was too much of the girls in Jane's family, including Jane herself, telling the hero how "manly" he was and how overwhelming he is to women. It was a little too simpering and creepy. The characters were cute but the resolution dragged on forever without a lot of payoff. I did enjoy the introduction to the rest of the Boscastle clan and liked the book enough to read others in the series.
The English Scoundrel started out at a slower pace then I enjoy, however once the story began to unravel it was highly enjoyable and the characters were easy to fall in love with. I look forward to following the Boscastle Family through the rest of the books in the series. However I have a feeling that this book will remain my favorite.
Generally speaking, I liked this book. Sedgecroft's struggle with taking the helm of his family was meaningful and his interaction with Jane entertaining. However, I did not get was why it was necessary for Sedgecroft to feel so betrayed by Jane's secret. At this point, the story gets too macho and Jane's plan for fixing the situation somewhat frustrating. Fortunately, I enjoyed most of the book.
When Lady Jane Welsham is left at the alter the groom's cousin,Grayson Boscastle,steps in to salvage Jane's reputation and save her from ruin. What Grayson doesn't know is that the Lady Jane and her ex planned the wedding no show.
This is the first book for the Boscastle family written by Jullian Hunter. You learn about the family and their passion for love. The men are talk dark and handsome with blue eyes. The Boscastle men can't deny their passion for women. Where there are Boscastle is a scandal. I had to read the entire series after reading this book. There are descriptive sections of passion but it's the story that draws you into each book.
It would have been the wedding of the year, if the bridegroom would have showed up that is. Lady Jane Welsham is left humiliated at the altar, but for some reason doesn't seem to be to upset about it. But the partiach of the family, Grayson Boscastle, the Marquess of Sedgecroft, cousin to the absent groom, can't stand for that and must offer his protection with a whirlwind affair.
