The Tenacious Miss Tamerlane: Kasey Michaels

Part of Kasey Michaels “Regency Classics: Alphabet Series” I dove into The Tenacious Miss Tamerlane ready for a funny romp. This gem of a novel did not disappoint.  With laugh out loud funny banter, some very eccentric supporting characters, and a quiz of a heroine (Miss Tansy Tamerlane) you will love this book from start … Continue reading

The first I picked up to read was The Nonesuch, as I remember another reader saying it was her fave. What a wonderful (as expected) read!  Full of fantastic, interesting characters … Continue reading

Georgette Heyer: Cousin Kate

After a several month search for Georgette Heyer novels, my book buddy, Mom, finally came through with Cousin Kate. Heyer’s foray into the romantic gothic novel is every bit as delicious as Arabella, with a sweet and feisty heroine who becomes embroiled in a very wicked situation! Impoverished and forced to work, she must find … Continue reading

Georgette Heyer: Arabella

Could there ever be anything more perfect than Arabella?  Heyer picks up where Austen leaves off, presenting a charming and perfectly engaging story of a country miss (the eldest daughter of a vicar) who tells a little fib when faced with the snobbery of the Nonpareil. Our hero, Mr. Beaumaris, is really just a Corinthian … Continue reading
