Comments Lucretia: or The Heiress and the Dandy

  • Book Gannet

    This was great fun. Taking a lot of inspiration from Georgette Heyer and capturing something of that master’s magic, this is a light, enjoyable romantic comedy of manners, with a rather perfect heroine and a surprisingly unlikely hero.Lucretia is exceedingly likeable. She’s also beautiful and witty and smart and made even more glorious when she laughs. It would be easy to dislike her, except she’s not the least bit vain, is solicitous to her friends and is intelligent enough not to let all [...]

I didn't think I would like Lady Rutland, but I actually became fond of her despite her haughty tyrannical ways. And Arnold was fantastic, so carefree and funny, but a quite cari [...]

However, I was impressed by her pitch of the book and decided to fit in into my schedule.At the time it was also available (and still is at the date of writing this post) available as a free Kindle Unlimited download.Now to the book was excellent and thoroughly enjoyable. Markedly so, comp [...]
