The first in a series of three. Not your typical romance novel, it is funny and quirky, and I actually laughed out loud in a couple of spots. Plenty of plot, with a spunky heroine.

The second novel in Coulter's trilogy is a delightful Regency romance brimming with drama, sex and colorful characters. It's 1814, and the young, brooding Lord Chilton is on his way from his Cornish castle, Mount Hawke, to London when he stops at an inn for the night. There, he meets the feisty 19-year-old Caroline Derwent-Jones, who is en route to the Cornish home of her aunt, Eleanor Penrose. Coulter's witty dialogue and bawdy, eccentric characters add up to an engaging, fan-pleasing story nonetheless. Great love story of the 1800's.

I love everything this author and Bertrice Small write.
At one time I had all their books in collection but time and space are now a premium so I must make room for the children and their needs.

These are excellent reads and like I said before Catherine Coulter really knows how to write to keep you titillated enough to speedily turn the pages and then sad when the story is over because you actually feel like you know the people or you were there too! Love this author!

Oh my goodness. I don't remember which of her books I read so many years ago, but I always remembered Catherine as one of my favorite authors - I used to laugh a ton with her dialogue. However, the last two I read, including this one were disappointing. This wasn't as bad as the last. I read the whole book. There was an awful scene at the end that just went too far with a character's speech. It ruined what good might have been in the rest of the book, and I felt I needed to wash my brain out with soap. Yuck. I have two more of Ms. Coulter's books that I actually purchased, and I'm not sure I'll even read them. Sad.

Second book in a three book trilogy - follows The Wyndham Legacy and precedes the Valentine Legacy.
Carolyn Derwent-Jones is at the eve of her 19th birthday, chomping at the bit to get out from under the control of her smarmy guardian, the frieghtenly obsessive Roland Ffalkes. She escapes him to find herself in the fascinating company of Frederick North Nightengale, Lord Chilton.
Mysteries and murders old and new abound. Misogyny is rampant in Lord Chilton's house, Mount Hawke, filled with only men. But to heis surprise, Lord Chilton finds he wants nothing more than to have Carolyn Derwent-Jones in his life.
