    A fun follow-up read to the Earl?s Betrothal. Not only does our valet Lucas get his happy ending in a most unexpected way, but we also get to meet a whole new motley crew of characters. Looking forward to hopefully reading more adventures involving the Jennings family. I think Susan ...

    When you have a group of actors and a gentleman get together, anything can happen. In some aspects this book played out like a theatrical performance, you never knew who was waiting in the wings ready to descend and create a little chaos. I loved the characters, particularly the ove...

    While this is one of my favorite genres to read- Regency romance, I haven't read many with an actress as the main character, so I was intrigued to learn more about the details of that life. I found it interesting that Lavinia had to "escape" to a new life that is more respectable in or...

    I love to read Regency romances and was delighted at the twists that I found in this story, as it's not typical. Lavinia is the great stage actress named Ruby. She desires to escape the stage and find her true self. I don't recall ever reading a story about a Regency actress before and...

    Regency romance is a fun genre and one of my favorites- especially when it's a bit off the beaten path like this one is. I've never read a regency that places the main character in the role of a stage performer and it made this story all the more intriguing. The deceptions that fill...

    Having read Tuft's The Earl's Betrothal and loving it, I was eager to get my hands on this new book of her's. And it turns out this one is related to that one. Lucas was a friend of the main character in the other book. I found it delightful to return to a character already known. And ...

    Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive! That quote comes to mind with this book. There are so many lies, half truths, omissions from these characters that I got whiplash! Hehe! Lavinia Fernley, aka The Darling of Drury Lane, aka Ruby Chadwick is an actres...

    Awwwwwwwwww!!! *sigh* I loved this book, and to tell you the truth it was a pleasant surprise. Not that I had any doubt in Karen Tuft's spectacular writing, but the plot wasn't something I thought I'd overly care for. I love this kind of historical drama. Set in my homeland. Honour &am...

    Finally, Ruby Chadwick will no longer exist! As Lavinia was making her escape, things did not go as plan. Her cohorts were not at he planned destination. Oh, No! One of the Earl of Cosgroves minions was there and, even through her disguise, recognized her! Desperate, she threw h...
