review ¹ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB Ó Sarah M. Eden

Be less admirable nothing like the loyal gentle friend she's found in Harry But how long can Harry's scheme be hidden before it is discovered And what will Athena do when she uncovers Harry's deception Escape into a charming regency world in this delightfully romantic comedy of manners that will entertain you to the very last wo. Fifth star because I’ve never before read a novelist who could so effectively replace the first sex scene in modern romance novels with steamy handholding Harry in love with Athena but too poor to court her offers to help screen her suitors for her misanthropic brother in law but is certain he ought to persuade her to be pickier so introduces her to less than thrilling suitors Much better than the third book There is not enough interaction among the sisters or really among any of the protagonists I guess there is a drawback to “show don’t tell” But still Steamy handholding must be my kink

I'll admit right off that I'm slightly biased about Sarah Eden's book because she is one of my favorite people If you are ever lucky enough to be at a conference where she's teaching go to her class Trust me She's a riotI've already read Sarah's book Seeking Persephone so I was glad to see Adam and Harry again This time Harry is the hero and the book switches pov between him and AthenaI loved the humor between Adam and Harry In fact I have to say I was a lot engrossed in their relationship than I was in Harry and Athena's Probably not what a romance writer wants to hear but still she did an excellent job of playing them off each other I especially love Adam's reaction during the big reveal scenePeople who love regency romances without all the bodice ripping will want to read this book

Courting Miss Lancaster The Lancaster Family #2 characters è 107 ½ Harry Windower adores blonde green eyes Athena Lancaster but alas a penniless man like himself has no hope of winning a young noblewoman's hand To add insult to injury Athena's brother in law and guardian the Duke of Kielder has asked Harry to assist S well as the weeks pass he introduces Athena to suitors who are horrifically boring alarmingly attached to their mothers downright rude astoundingly self absorbed and utterly ridiculousAthena can't comprehend why she is having so little success meeting eligible and acceptable gentlemen Indeed her circle of admirers couldn't be. A Regency RomanceBook 2 of the series set in London in 1806 a year after book 1 began I enjoyed this Regency Romance but unfortunately what I liked most were the scenes that involved Adam the Duke of Kielder from book 1 Seeking Persephone Adam plays a key role in this book both alone and with his Duchess Persephone Adam has become legal guardian to his wife's four siblings including her sister Athena the heroine Soas guardian Adam must play the noble knight and ride to Athena's rescue slaying the dragon who would besmirch her name More than once Adam shines in this role while Athena's hero Harry is relegated to supportive sidekick status It had to go down that way because Harry could not fight for Athena's honor Eden is a stickler for following Regency era societal conventions but it created an imbalance in the story Eden should have devised a different plot one where Harry could be heroic without raising any brows saving Athena from drowning perhaps or from a run away carriage a rabid dogI dunnosomehow putting himself in harm's way for herOther flaws I liked Harry in book 1 In this book he does a few things that cause me to uestion his character and his intelligence as well as his devotion to AthenaFound it hard to swallow the scene at Athena's ball when the Duke Adam and the Price Regent engage in a little silent contest for alpha status Seemed absurdAndWhy is there no mention of the oh so important ducal heir the catalyst for Adam and Persephone's marriage Best scenes At Whites when Adam and Harry confronted Sir Hubert Collington Smashing good show I also enjoyed the scene in the park with the vicious Mrs Handly The sickroom scene was very sweet where Harry brings violets to feverish Athena Adam calls them a bunch of weeds Two scenes involve young Daphne and Adam Sweet Hope we see of Daphne in a seuel Recommended especially for those who loved book 1 Adam and Persephone engage in various delightfully lovin' little scenes Note no sex in the series Only hugs and kissesI loved the first book in this series but the Kindle version is almost 3 times the cost of book 2 Maybe it will go on sale See my 5 star review of Seeking Persephone
