Colin is in a very tight bind, with the bills stacking up and running out of time and money, he comes up with a mercenary scheme. Marry the richest heiress [...]


    2. 4 ½ stars – Historical/Regency RomanceIt’s been a while since I’ve read a regency historical romance, and although it’s not my favorite romance genre, I still enjoy them on occasion, especially when it’s a captivating story with intriguing characters that keeps me entertained, and Olivia Drake’s Seducing the Heiress, which is the first in her An Heiress in London series, definitely held my interest.Miss Portia Crompton is just a commoner, but she’s the hottest thing to hit the soc [...]


    3. This was a good book. It seems to be the first of a series, so there were some loose ends that weren't tied up, but that didn't actually hamper the story at hand.I have to admit, though, that the discord went on too long for me. I don't think we got to see them being together as a couple for enough time to really feel satisfied by the end. There just weren't a lot of scenes of them being together without it being all fraught with sexual tension. Now, I like sexual tension as much as the next gal [...]



    4. I adored this one! It was funny, sexy and quick to read. I loved both the hero and heroine. Though they put in the old love in India I really think that it could have stood with the same plot without it. But it did lend to some funny scenes regarding the said person. I am looking forward to the next for sure!



    5. this was a nice read. I had some troubles in the first half of the book because I could not quite get into feeling the attraction but that changed.Colin is viewed as a scoundrel and is cut from society for murdering his father. the first impression we get is that he is obviously gamling away his money and is not to be trusted. but during the book there are a lot of incidents which prove that he is more to him than society thinks. He is generous, loving and - as we experience through the book - s [...]


    6. This book annoyed me with its anachronisms. I don't care if a girl's family is 'in trade' or if she was raised in India, there is no way during regency times that she would be sneaking in and out of unmarried gentlemen's houses trying to recover lost goods. Especially as she was trying to be proper and not destroy her reputation (and that of her family). Regency romances that can't stay with the social mores of the time annoy me SO MUCH.


    7. I thoroughly enjoyed this book! A very entertaining page turner from start to finish. I thought both Portia and Ratcliffe were wonderful characters and that it had a very 'Pride & Prejudice' aspect. Very nicely done!


    8. What's the star rating for "I liked it just fine, but don't have any interest in reading anything else by the author"? Threeish?


    9. Short and sweet review. A good historical romance. This had a fster pace than Kleypas or Quinn. It felt like the book was constantly moving. And the hero was a bit more complicated than that of the other authors. Is this book better. Not necessarily but it reminded me of the pace my action romance novels. SinceI have read a few of the other writers books it was nice to read something that did have a different style. I will be looking for the next book in this series.


    10. When people talk about bad romance novels? This is what they mean. Ridiculous, racist, poorly written—this book is a What Not To Write



    11. This books iswell.ok. In the author bio in the back, Drake is a pseudonym for a best selling author. Well, that kind of makes sense. The dialogue is sharp, witty, and very entertaining. It is the plot that only gets one star. The book goes on until the very last little bit, then all kinds of devices are thrown in. Family issues are resolved, and frankly, the heroine was so smart, I'm surprised she didn't figure out the hero's secrets sooner. Basically, this only got one star because the angst wa [...]


    12. The reason I picked this book to buy was due to what the reviewer said about the author. She liked Drake's writing to Amanda Quick's. I love Amanda Quick, so I wanted to give this author a try. Soon into to the book I realized how wrong the reviewer was. Quick has a ton of humor in her books, which this one lacked, plus her characters were often not perfect in beauty, both characters were. I had trouble getting into the book until almost the end. I felt that there wasn't any real time spent with [...]


    13. I really liked this book. Portia has got to be one of my favorite heroines to date. She was head strong and no one could stop her from doing what she wanted to do. Along comes Colin to put a damper in all of her plans and steal her heart in the process. I am already looking forward to reading the next book in this series and can't wait for Lindsey's story.Anyway, I couldn't stand Edith Crompton or Lady Ratcliffe. I guess it was a sign of their time, because they were some very selfish women. I u [...]


    14. Okay so to me the book had a mellow flow I totally loved the plot and the passages are so descriptive. Im a fan of H/H alternating POVs but the fact that hmmm even if you dont read the decription about the other books in the trilogy something funny is going on with Portias parents. There was intigue and mystery, the tension between the H/H was palpable full of steaminess. Colin wasnt at all what he seemed and as you move along and get to know him better it feels like Colin is alot more worth tha [...]


    15. Though it did keep my interest throughout the book, it wasn't spectacular. The love connection and love scenes were a little lack luster for me. The ending was a bit of a disappointment as well. Arun finally returns to Portia, and he's totally cool with her being in love with another guy. He travels all the way from India to see her, and doesn't even put up a fight?! Just seemed a little unrealistic. The actual ending of the book felt to be unfinished in a way. Portia and Colin profess their und [...]


    16. Eh, I had a hard time getting into this one. I probably would've enjoyed it more if it was obvious from the beginning that the love interest, Ratcliffe, was taking the rap for someone else where his reputation was concerned. I never felt a real connection between the main characters until about 2/3rds through. There was also a mysterious visitor to the house hinting something about the mother's past. It doesn't come up again in this book, maybe in a future book? It was just confusing.


    17. Two thirds of the way through the book, I didn't know how I felt about it. I was frustrated with the turn of events and the development; with the characters and their personalities. Ratcliffe's relationship with his mother really got on my nerves. I would have told her to grow up, but that's just me.Arun's sudden appearance and his lack of emotion to surrender the woman he was in love with and has traveled so many months to marry made as much sense as Portia having no concern with and encourage [...]


    18. This book annoyed me with its anachronisms. I don't care if a girl's family is 'in trade' or if she was raised in India, there is no way during regency times that she would be sneaking in and out of unmarried gentlemen's houses trying to recover lost goods. Especially as she was trying to be proper and not destroy her reputation (and that of her family). Regency romances that can't stay with the social mores of the time annoy me SO MUCH.


    19. I started this book because I needed something fluffy and light after the last book I read. I wasn't expecting much, but I quite enjoyed it. The characters had good chemistry, the plot was interesting, the writing was good. The pacing progressed well, twists came at appropriate times - it's all around solid book. Perhaps nothing new, or mindblowing, or revolutionary, but I didn't getting bored or angry at it once, which I find myself doing too often these days.


    20. This book was just sort of average for me. I don't really have any big negatives, but I didn't really have any highlights, either. Portia and Colin were both likeable and I certainly wanted Colin to get the girl, but I found a lot of the plot line predictable and uninspiring. I found the duke's animosity and quest for "revenge" too over the top to be really believable and Colin's loyalty to his selfish, immature mother also lacked credibility.


    21. This book had moments I enjoyed but for the most part it was rather lackluster. The problems and resolutions were a bit contrived; nothing too exciting, nor terribly romantic. The banter between the H/H was mildly humorous; mostly they just lusted after each other. When they finally did hop into bed it was the standard flowery fare of a regency romance.


    22. Meh. This book is just okay for me. First half of the book is waaaay better then the another half of the book. I don't understand why the author has to drag and drag the ending, making more complications when she could have easily end the story happily and write a satisfying epilogue? Ugh. I hate it when a story doesn't end with an epilogue.


    23. I got this book as soon as it was out and was captivated by this read and its a debut in this name but a favorite author of mine, Barbara Dawson Smith. Loved this heroine of Portia, so independent and so know what she wants! And Colin, Lord Ratcliffe, he does have a huge heart! He's drowning in debt but too drowns in lust and love with her. I did too!


    24. A spunky heiress and a rake with a heart of gold make for a satisfying, if not particularly original, love story. It's a pretty cartoonish portrayal of the regency period and the plot can't be taken seriously but the dialogue is sharp and the writing goes down easy.


    25. This is a pleasant vacation read. It follows the standard formula to a T, but I did rather like the drama of the viscount's relationship with his mother. I think my boyfriend enjoyed my sporadic updates on said drama, told with flair.


    26. Enjoyed the story overall. Will be looking for the next bok in the series to come out this fall, Never Trust A Rogue. The three Crompton sisters (Portia. Lindsey & Blythe) will make for a delightful series.


    27. Loved the main characters!! There were times in the book that I didn't think they were going to make it. To my relief they pulled through. A very enjoyable read!
