    1. Levi is on a mission. Ever since the untimely death of his beloved sister, he's made a goal to tracking down and exposing the illegal gambling dens and their corrupt masters from causing any more innocents from being driven to ruin, as was done to her. His base of operations is his loan brokering business, an establishment which alongside his Jewish background don't make him popular in 19th century London. But however unsavoury his business may be to some, it one day brings a chance at exposing [...]

    2. First of all, despite its fancy cover, this book has been around for quite awhile. It was originally published in 1981. I'm wondering if the character development that Ashford used was indicative of the decade in which she wrote, or of her personal style.The novel is written in the third person limited viewpoint. It's as if we sit on the shoulder of the heroine. We know only what she knows and only what she feels. Throughout the course of the novel, there are may three complete pages of material [...]

    3. ok the summary looks great and i was really expecting SOMETHING!!! to happen,like maybe he ignores her and she gets fed up with his attitude and decides to make her self in to the Belle of the Ball but does she!!!! NO!!!! SHE DOES NOT!!!!!i'm sorry but this was just not what i was wanting to read in the end. i think the only reason i was able to actually finish the book was because i was expecting something new to happen!.Seriously it begins with the guy saying how he's proud that be got himself [...]

    4. This book shows its age. The trope of the mature hero who marries and tolerates a young, unseasoned woman? Not exactly easy to pull off today, where Eliot comes off as a distant control-freak and Laura as an insipid milquetoast. There's a pair of villains who are unbelievably black, Laura's rambunctious younger sister and the heir to a dukedom in disguise rounding out the romance's share of ridiculousness. You don't really believe that Laura and Eliot connect at a rushed and unsatisfying conclus [...]

    5. I should have saved my money. This book is full of unlikeable characters and has a ridiculous plot. I would have thrown it against the wall, but I read it on my iPad. The story started off in a promising fashion when the couple is marooned at an inn during a snowstorm. They have to marry to save the woman's reputation .The heroine, Laura, is a colorless, timid idiot who makes one bone-headed decision after another. Eliot, the "honourable man" is cold and unfeeling until the very end, when he dec [...]

    6. I enjoyed reading Man of Honour but it could have been better. Why oh why do good books fall aparrrrrrrt in the last few chapters? Drives me crazy.

    7. It's a good thing this was one of Ashford's first (if not the first) books. Eliot is an unemotional hero. I rag on possessive alpha asshole characters but I think I might have preferred that to Eliot's casual bullshit. Women have no sense of humor? Men have no real companionship with women except sex? I have endured vapors, hysterics, etc? He's such an unpleasant person right from his first PoV scene and his casual misogyny is so unpleasant and uncomfortable and I really absolutely hate him alre [...]

    8. This was an interesting read, and definitely not as bad as other reviewers made it out to be. I wouldn't say this is this author's best, but I haven't read many of her other books, to make a comparison. Given that it was written in the 80s, and it follows the standards of the traditional Regency Romance, as inspired by Heyer and Austen, it has a different tone than something that might be published today, with no explicit scenes, and a heroine that is more naive in the ways of the world, as wome [...]

    9. This book is terrible. You can tell that she's going for some strange mix of Darcy (someone with good intentions that continuously messes up) and Anne Shirley (so many hijinks that backfire!). Both characters are dumb, their motivations unbelieveable, and the final "but I've loved you since the beginning!" falls flat. They have hardly spoken to each other at all through the whole book. Where does this mysterious super love come from?

    10. I just couldn't bear to read on I don't usually stop reading a book when I'm more than halfway through, but I just couldn't take anymore. Another relationship on the rocks through failure to communicate I can take, but a seemingly intelligent heroine bound and determined to make each and every stupid mistake she can I'm done. I'm sure there is some kind of implausible happy ending to this book but I can't bear the journey to get there, I'll go try something else instead.

    11. It was a struggle to finish. An immature childish naive bride and a sophisticated husband who barely speaks to her except to issue orders, there is no romance in this and the book is based upon a series of secrets and lies. Her sister and sister's friend were even sillier.

    12. AWFUL. There is not one sympathetic character in the book, which reads like a chunky string of shallow stereotypes in implausible situations. This deserves to be put out to pasture.
