So the other day I was bugging Sarah Eden on twitter about when her next book came out. That sweet girl told me she has several things coming out this fall/winter, which got me all excited. One of those things is a short story in the Timeless Romance Anthology. So I headed on over to their blog to check things out and came across the most beautiful cover for another book, MISS DELACOURT HAS HER DAY by Heidi Ashworth. Have I ever mentioned that I choose, like, 75% of the books I pick up based on their covers? So I skipped on over to Amazon to see what I could see and saw that MISS DELACOURT HAS HER DAY is actually the second book and that the first book, MISS DELACOURT SPEAKS HER MIND is free to borrow if you have a Kindle. Which I happen to have. :D You know where this is going, don't you -- regency lover finds free book ...

From Heidi Ashworth's site: When the dowager duchess of Marcross insists he accompany her niece, Ginny, into the country for the day to execute a special task, Sir Anthony is appalled, to say the least. Ginny, who thinks little of the fashionable Sir Anthony, is as eager to be done with the chore as he, but before they arrive at their destination they are stranded by highwaymen and launched into adventure. Forced into each other's company, Ginny begins to sense the passionate nature beneath Sir Anthony's mask of ennui, while his exasperation with the forthright Ginny turns into admiration of her wit and charm. Then beautiful Lucinda Barrington and Lord Avery, a poet, come onto the scene, sparking Ginny's imagination and revealing a way to unmask the true man behind Sir Anthony's frivolous facade. Meanwhile, the dowager duchess has plans of her own for this pair, and her special task turns into a battle of words, wills, and wit.

Audience: Adult (clean)
Genre: Regency Romance
Length: 270 pages

The Rating: *** (Liked It)

The Pros: Regency Romance. Duh. Fab characters, really! The forthright heroine, Miss Delacourt, reminds me of some of Georgette Heyer’s quirky characters, which I always love. Lucinda (the anti-heroine? lol) is so superb. She just absolutely cracks me up. And the Squire and Mrs. Barrington are just perfect. The hunt the slipper/linen closet scene had me giggling to no end. The every-thing-always-goes-wrong plot was great. They are the best kind of Regencies, in my opinion.

The Cons: The points of view switched during scenes without breaking them by chapters or scene breaks, which confused me. Sir Anthony, the hero, had some contradictory feelings both for Lucinda and Ginny near the middle of the book.

  1. I always love it when people get this book. It takes a discerning mind. Thanks for the great review!

  2. I loved both of these books! I think part of that was that it was so surprisingly enjoyable and humorous. I wasn't expecting that and I really liked the characters and that it was clean. Definitely both good reads. :)


About Me!

I've been writing since I was old enough to grasp a crayon--my grandma even has an early copy of a "book" I made her. I have a bachelor's degree in history from the University of Wyoming and will (hopefully) soon be starting a graduate program in English. When I'm not breaking up impromptu UFC fights in the living room or losing miserably to my boys at Uno, I'm ... well, writing or editing, of course! I'm married to my best friend, and we have three rambunctious but simply amazing little boys.
