A Matter of Class by Mary Balogh

Setting: Regency

Summary:

Reginald Masson is wealthy refined and by all accounts, a gentleman. However, he is not a gentleman by birth, a factor that pains him and his father. Bernard Mason, with the Regency society that upholds station love all else. That is, until an opportunity for social advancement arises, namely, Lady Annabelle Ashton. Daughter of the Earl of Havercroft, a neighbor and enemy of the Mason family, Annabelle finds herself disgraced by a scandal, one that has left her branded as damaged goods. Besmirched by shame, the earl is only too happy to marry Annabelle off to anyone willing to have her.

Though Bernard wishes to use Annabelle to propel his family up the social ladder, his son does not to marry her, preferring instead to live as the wild, single life he is accustomed to. With this, Bernard serves his son an ultimatum: marry Annabelle, or make do without family funds. Having no choice, Reginald consents and enters into a hostile engagement in which the prospective bride and groom are openly antagonistic, each one resenting the other for their current state of affairs while their respective fathers revel in their suffering.

So begins an intoxicating tale rife with dark secrets, deception, and the trials of love-a story in which very little is as it seems.

Trailer

Review:

A romance novel with its own website? And not a full length romance either? It must be worth the effort!

I confess I was reluctant to purchase the book as it was in hard cover and seemed so pricey for a novel that was under 200 pages. But I put away my doubts and placed my faith in Balogh’s talent for writing touching, unforgettable books. And while I cannot say the book was worth every penny, it certainly was worth reading-this was an interesting, engaging, well-written story with a very unexpected twist.

Both hero and heroine have been forced into an unwanted marriage-she to escape ruin and he to rise up the social ladder. At first you expect a marriage of convenience story as both characters make their dislike for each other obvious. But, without spoiling the story for you, you will be pleasantly surprised at how things end up.

As usual, Balogh’s talent for writing emotionally moving plots and her insights into the human heart are here in top form. This is a wise, touching portrayal of two people who find love despite their different social classes.

The only thing I wish this book could have improved on was its length-it was a bit too short I felt for a story that would have been brilliant if there was more time to flesh out the characters. We barely get to know the hero and heroine, though their chemistry is not in question-it’s obvious they are good together. I only wish we had more time to see them interact.

Still, in such a small number of pages, Mary Balogh has managed to create a wonderful, unpredictable story, one you will definitely need to pick up and read again.

Sensuality Rating: Warm (Love scenes are short and non explicit)

Verdict: A short, and very surprising story. Not to be missed.

Rating: 4 and a half out of 5 stars

Tempted By His Kiss by Tracy Anne Warren

Setting: Pre-Regency 1809

*Book 1 in Byrons of Braebourne series*

Summary:

Orphaned beauty Meg Amberley never planned to pose as Lord Cade Byron’s fiancée.  Caught in a snowstorm, she takes refuge at his estate. Stranded together, Meg soon finds herself falling under Cade’s spell. When the roads clear, she intends to leave, but fate intervenes.

Haunted by his past, Cade Byron has buried himself in the country. Then Meg—with her lush curves and soft, blonde hair—invades his house and his life. With her reputation compromised, he proposes a pretend engagement and a London Season where she can find a husband.

But as their charade deepens, Cade can’t let her go . . . vowing to tempt her with a kiss that just may lead to forever.

Review:

I wanted to like this book and expected a great deal after reading some of the favourable reviews on Amazon. The plot sounded good, even if it’s been done before. But what could have been a sweet, sizzling romance between two strangers fate has brought together, turned out to be very predictable, a bit unbelievable, dull and lacking in chemistry.

The hero and heroine meet by accident on his estate during a snow storm. The hero is only just recovering from horrifying events that took place during his stint as a spy in the war. The heroine is young but also mature for her years. Naturally, there is an attraction and before long, they end up in a compromising position, by accident.

The thing is, I never quite felt the spark between them and them falling into bed soon early on in the book robbed the plot of a lot of good old sexual tension. Cade was supposed to be still madly in love with his first love and yet he is all too eager to bed Meg from the start. To be honest, I wish there was more of a struggle with his feelings for his fiancé versus his new feelings for Meg, but no, after the ‘compromise’, he suggests a Season in London to help her find a husband. Really? When she hasn’t even been compromised that badly and it was an unintentional mistake? I felt like the fake engagement was used more as a weak excuse to keep the H and H together, rather than a good twist. It was unbelievable to say the least.

And from there, the story is boringly predictable-Meg goes about meeting new men and getting to know Cade’s family, while Cade resists falling for his fake fiancé. I confess I was about to give up right there-even a worn false engagement plot can be interesting with the right plot to pull it off, something this book was without. The sex scenes weren’t even that great despite their length, content and number and I felt myself rushing through them.

Luckily things did pick up and there was a bit of intrigue with an unexpected villain that saved the book. Pity it didn’t come sooner. I thought Cade was supposed to be dangerous, worthy of his name but he was just wounded. I did like Meg’s maturity but at the end, she kind of annoyed me with her unfounded behaviour. The author also has this annoying habit of inserting ‘mayhap’ every few pages and I started playing a game just to see when it would pop up next.

So, an average hero, a likeable heroine who ended up being annoying, a barely passable plot, boring sex scenes and little chemistry. This book is a lesson in how NOT to write a romance novel.

I just hope her other books are better than this one.

Sensuality Rating: Hot (Love scenes are long and explicit)

Verdict: Not worth your time. Skip this one.

Rating: 2 out of 5 stars
