    1. Excellent. The plot hinges on the machinations of a mynah bird no really, the plot is about two willful, intelligent people who don't really know what they're doing. Great fun. Wonderful over-the-top villains. And some great secondary characters who set many a plot in motion.


    2. Poor Alice is in love with Gerald; but as it is the Regency her parents want her to make a better marriage and the Duke of Ferrant is a superior groom. Lucy is trapped in an arranged marriage. On her wedding day her pet Myna reveals her unrequited love to her groom. And their marriage in name only begins.As her loveless union is revealed to London society many people want to split the couple to their own ends. Will the Duchess and Duke realize that they are truly in love.


    3. Written in a style I now identify with MC Beaton. There is some dark humor. Not a typical Regency romance read in any way, though.





    4. In a nutshell: Alice is in love with Sir Gerald. Her parents orchestrate a break-up and marry her off to the new peer in town, the Duke of Farrant. A talking bird starts off the controversy. Misunderstandings and general nuttiness ensue.My opinion: Quite an amusing reade first time. It's still funny, even six reads later, but if it is re-read too soon, it's just annoying. The talking bird isn't even the funny part. The silliness of the main characters and several supporting characters is what in [...]


    5. Alice Lacey is in love but her parents have other ideas for her future which do not include marrying the man she loves. The Duke of Farrant is unmarried and when Alice meets him she gets on well with him. If she hadn’t already been in love she just might have fallen for him. When her parents arrange a marriage between the two of them Alice reluctantly agrees. But things don’t turn out well and a year later Alice is unhappy.I enjoyed this entertaining Regency romance which includes some of mo [...]


    6. This book was written with a lot of short sentences, and that made the plot seem very shallow. Also, everything was so convenient that you could guess with a 100% precision who would die next (and yes, there are a lot of deaths in this book). I thought the idea was good, but the main character was a bit too childish and that the Duke was a bit too boring. Everything was very black and white in this. The ending was a bit out of nowhere, especially because the plot had already been resolved and su [...]


    7. Even though this was a light romance, the characters were so well developed and likable, that I stayed up to read it all night just to see what happened to them. After reading over 100 of this author's books, I realize that some can be formulaic, but then some of her characters are among the most memorable who draw me in.I thoroughly enjoyed this book. For some reason, it reminded me of the book, Dancing on the Wind--even though that book was more serious in tone, they both have such well develo [...]



    8. I totally loved this historical. It was short and cute, I'm going to have to go back and read the rest in this series.
