An Unlikely Countess (2011)
3.65 of 5 Votes: 1
Three and half stars. I think I was just in the right mood for a well written regency romance and this fit the bill. There's only so much you can do with the plots of these novels and I thought this one was at least a bit different. Where it fell down for me for some reason was toward the end. My...

It's been a while since I read anything by Jo Beverley and I had forgotten how good she can be.

Tenía expectativas con este libro, quizás por eso me dejó tan vacía. Hacía tiempo que no leía un histórico y cogí este con ganas... pero me dejó como si nada. Se entretiene en descripciones y diálogos totalmente innecesarios y que no tienen sentido. No necesito que cada vez (que son muchas) que d...

As others have noted, this book is nowhere near the quality of the earlier Malloren novels. A couple of the illustrious family members are brought in to keep the claim, "A New Novel in the Malloren World," from being false advertising. This may seem an uncharitable sentiment on my part, sorry.Th...

Lord Wraybourne's Betrothed (1990)
3.45 of 5 Votes: 3
This was Jo Beverley's first novel and is a decent start. The mystery plot would have been more interesting if I hadn't read some of the follow-up novels and already knew who the villain was. The denouement was really quick and should have been drawn out more. The romance plot was a bit boring. J...
