Reading Challenges: Summer Romance – Historical

A most enjoyable read!!!  Definitely a most read for fans of Regency romance novels.  Usually I find faults with historical romance.  Often there are the tired cliches: the rake, the virginal damsel, the villainous cad, the overbearing governess/sister/mother/aunt.  Thankfully, those weren’t present here.  Well not really.  Balogh does a wonderfully job at introducing the reader to what seem to be the standard characters.  These characters are anything but standard.  The books begins like a cliche, but we start to see something more going on.  There’s a nice weaving of present and flashbacks.  The characters, all of them, are intriguing.  The books isn’t filled with unnecessary sex scenes.  overall its a great read.  I don’t want to give too much of the plot away… so I’ll just say that I recommend to fans of good historical romance!
