He was a true rake easily slipping back into his dissipated ways when their romance was tested, oc I never quite believed that he changed enough to become the man that Lady Mary deserved. The story line reminds me of Georgette H: The journey was full of angst but the end result was worth it.

She is a heartbreaking character, so realistic in her complete lack of self esteem Lady Mary Haviland is a 29 year old spinster, who considers herself comfortably on the shelf. Mary doesn’t deserve him. This is the 2nd book in a seris of regency rakes trilogy. A Christian romance set in the 18th century, Pure is the Heart has the ability to draw out the lover and the faithful spirit in every soul.

Mary’s desesperate runaway annoyed me more than all the secret bussines, because theres nothing I hate more in a romance novel than the character that overheard something incompletely, because its always incomplete and dash to conclusions. From the beginning of the book through somewhere towards the end Jack acts like the fortune hunter we know he is, he doesn’t do anything to show us he is changed so it wasn’t easy for me to like him.

An Affair of Honor. Learn how to enable JavaScript on your browser. Lady Mary Haviland is the camdice year old daughter of the late Earl Assheton. The trope of one character not revealing everything to another to “protect” them, but that lack of information causes bad decisions to be made.

Jack has a new plan. Lady Mary Haviland hart the twenty-nine year old daughter of the late Earl Assheton. He had great hopes of becoming a legend…Geoffrey de Servian showed excellent promise of becoming a first-rate knight until one day he falls off a horse, leaving him physically and mentally broken. This heroine starts off trying to help the hero find a bride after he suddenly inherits his father’s title after dad and his brothers all die in a boating accident.

So she goes out and about, being friends to and knowing everyone, in short is quite popular lady. I like the little side romance of Olivia and Edward also- not too much written with that, but just enough that my imagination took off.

When he meets Mary, he thinks all his problems are solved. We appreciate your feedback. That devil-to-pay existence does not prepare him for someone like Jonna Remington, a fiercely independent woman who is not impressed with his charm or cunning.

A Change of Heart (Regency Rakes, #2) by Candice Hern

Her plain face and uncoquettish manner brought men to her as friends, not suitors. Will read sooner than later. I had never heard Hern until the challenge but have read the first three books. Jack has a new plan. Mary has remained one of my favorite heroines.

The review must be at least 50 characters long. Mary’s childhood was so awful that it was a wonder she survived. She travels to England regularly, always in search of more historical and local color to bring her stories and characters to life.
