Enjoyed all 4 stories, a lot of comical interaction between all characters. My only complaint would be the phrase used in all books "he/she ran their tongue along their teeth". Not an attractive description but that's really the only thing negative about the entire series.
for well written stories with unique and interesting characters who actually both make sense and evolve. Thank you for your creative premise for this series and your thoughtful back stories. I read a lot. Before finding this series, I had begun at least six regency romances that I gave up on after 20% or less because they were trite, unimaginative, or just poorly written. These books are delightful! Please continue to write. I will happily read anything you have published.
When I began reading, I hoped that the heroine would be an update of Georgette Heyer's omnicompetent Sophy Stanton-Lacey. As I continued reading, I found this was not the case, but became concerned about the plot's growing implausibility. To other and future Alissa Johnson fans: don't wo rry. The HEA works out quite well, at least in the world of Regency romances. (Aside: why do publishers insist on putting women in dresses from the 1870s on the covers of novels about the 1810s?)
This novel contains the usual funny mistakes of usage, including the hilarious mixing up of "askew" and "askance." On the other hand, AJ knows the difference between "staunch" and "stanch," and that is MAJOR.
As usual, I recommend this book highly, and I only hope that some future AJ novel centers around the further adventures of Sophie and Alex. Perhaps their young family could find itself in Brussels for the battle of Waterloo....
Alissa Johnson never disappoints. I’ve read all this writer’s books and kindly request more. What a relief to find an author who allows our imagination to provide the details in the romantic situations our main characters find themselves. Author does not rely on porn to pad the page count. Dear Author: we anxiously await your next series. Get busy!
Alissa Johnson is an author you will want to read often. Her book As Luck Would Have It kept me interested throughout and sitting on the edge of my chair a few times. I enjoyed her style of writing tremendously.
I loved the banter between the main characters the plot a little convoluted but discovered the fact the cousin had easterly plans. The antics of the knife throwing, room breaking heroine had me smiling. A truly good romantic read. Thank you
