Tangled Reins

Tch for any gentleman of the ton But one kiss from a dashing stranger changed everythin. 35 stars rounded upThat book isn t really special It s rather short the plot is uite simple and rather uneventful and the characters are a bit clich the older country girl convinced of her ugliness and future endless spinsterhood meeting a know it all obey me immediately rake However I really enjoyed reading it It was a relatively chaste story with only a few kisses here and there which I found refreshing Most of the story related the courtship according to the ton s reuirements and that was also a refreshing change from all the other books in which the leads would never adhere to society s strictures That romance was fairly reminiscent of Georgette Heyer s and could sustain the comparison with most though not Heyer s best

    I was pretty underwhelmed by The Lady Risks All by this author but thinking that there must be a reason she's such a big name in the field of historical romance decided not to give up after just the one sample Tangled Reins is a much earlier work of hers and I suppose could be termed a comedy of manners as not much happens and it's cast very much in the Heyer mould although without the same lightness of touch and humourTo say it wasn't b

    Featherweight old fashioned Regency not at all Laurens' usual bodice ripper; Heyer like it suited my mood perfectly for a lazy Sunday afternoon on the sun porch I understand from other reviews that this was apparently an early book for her but as I've only read her Cynster novels I'm no expert although this is

    Although the cover touts that this is the first time in hardback this book is actually a reprint of a book first published in 1992 Now I love Stephanie Laurens as much as the next reader of historical romances but it's obvious that this was one of her very early works before she polished her signature style she's known for today I'm not sure but I'd also guess that this one was once a series romance as it seems very formulaic I'd suggest

    I first read this over ten years ago I recently read another earlier Laurens and did not like it too much because it was not up to todays Laurens But this one I liked maybe not as much as the first time but only because Laurens has become such a better writer This one comes very close to her current books but the heroine is not as strong The hero is the same Machiavellian protective handsome hero
