    One thought on “Two Corinthians: A Walker Regency Duet, Book II”

    1. Claire Sutton has spent her entire 28 years being belittled by her mother and protecting her sister Lizzie from the same fate. Claire prefers cultivating roses in her greenhouse to society, but she is determined to find a husband for Lizzie so they can escape their awful family. When Claire falls and sprains her ankle, a handsome stranger rescues her and she thinks he will make the perfect husband for Lizzie. Lord George Winterborne is finally ready to seek a wife now that his brother's happines [...]

    2. I love a good Regency romance, but I find it difficult to find any that aren’t dreadfully silly, and historically inaccurate to boot. I don’t expect every last detail to be perfect, but some things are terribly easy to check, like correct forms of address for the aristocracy, and it’s a great irritant when the author hasn’t even bothered. However, I have no such complaints here. There is a great deal of detail of clothing, and the language is riddled with contemporary cant, but it all fe [...]

    3. This was a pleasant read with few, weak villains (mostly the mother who is cruel to her older daughter in favor of the younger) and very obvious pairings.I like Claire (older sister) and Winterborne's story much better than that of Lizzie and Bertram, for that Bertram kept waiting and didn't even know his own heart until one of Lizzie's plans had gone awry and landed him in a muddle, so to speak. Winterborne, on the other hand, knew whom he loved and was prepared to offer for Claire as soon as B [...]

    4. This was fairly good. And *didn't* have sex in it. Hurrah!! Regency romances should not have sex! It's just wrong.If I want porn, to quote a friend, I can get it for free on t'internet. I _don't_ want porn. What I want is a well-written novel, along the lines of Heyer. Sadly, I'm disappointed a lot of the time.

    5. Some great funny moments packed into a sweet, traditional romance that clean Reg Rom readers will enjoy.For my full review: regrom/2015/05/25/caro

    6. 3 1/2 starsCorinthian: A most desirable parti, a veritable top-of-the-trees. He was a leader of fashion, a superb driver (of carriages, etc) and probably very well connected and rich. He was also adept at several sporting activities and probably boxed with Gentleman Jackson at Jackson's Saloon (Bond Street). He was muscular and very fit.This was a fairly predictable story, but that’s okay… it was pretty much what I expected and wanted. I was a captive audience (laid up on my couch with a pul [...]

    7. Plain Claire Sutton never expected to marry (and now that she's in her twenties, she almost certainly won't), but she intends to give her younger, prettier sister Lizzie every opportunity to. She arranges to give her a Season in London. While there, the girls are pursued by Bertram (from Miss Hartwell's Dilemma and George, both eligible bachelors with considerable fortunes and charm. But each man is courting the wrong sister--when will they all realize who they truly love?By the end of this stor [...]

    8. I didn't realize this was a sequel to Miss Hartwell's Dilemma. It was fun.I have enjoyed all of Carola Dunn’s regency books I have read so far. They are a nice, quick, easy read and they have a Jane Austen feel to them. Each book is different enough from the others to feel fresh and her enjoyable writing style is consistent.

    9. everyone lives happily ever after. Which is why I keep on coming back for more of these simple romances - I just love happy endings!

    10. Read of a few of these regencies in November. Perfectly cute, perfectly clean, not as memorable as Georgette Heyer.
