    One thought on “The Savage Lord Griffin”

    1. It was an enjoyable read, as all Joan Smith's books are, but the largest part of the book consists of the hero mooning over anyone but the heroine it seems. He only realizes in about the last half-dozen pages that Sal is the one for him, and the attraction seems largely based on his sudden awareness that she has adored him all the while. Definitely not the most convincing romance I've ever read.

    2. Is it just me or was Lord Griffin kind of a jerk and a fool? He wasn't exactly good romance hero material.he seemed genuinely in love with our heroine's insipid sister, he chased and flirted shamelessly with another nasty debutante and he just seemed clueless in general about women. Our heroine certainly deserved better than a tacked on epiphany that she was really the woman for him.

    3. Every ten years or so, I go through my "classics" piles of books. These books have survived the test of time as I've grown and matured. No one else may consider them classics but they still resonate with me. My classics pile contains of a lot of Regency romances. The Savage Lord Griffin will be staying in my classics pile.Even though I originally bought this book when I was in my 20s, it still resonates with me. I think it's because Alice, the heroine, is wise beyond her years while her sister w [...]

    4. The hero is OK but the heroine is a vapid non-entity and, while the secondary characters are amusing, they aren't enough to make this a good read. I did admire the courage of the timid duke and his beloved. They are a nervous wreck but they don't give in to the threats of the [theoretically at least] larger than life hero.

    5. It was interesting. When I read Joan Smith's novel I have often the feeling that she was wiser than one would expect from an author of Regency romances.Here we have a here who I was tempted not to like. Some could call him a fool. There were also moments that I almost didn't like. I couldn't believe that in such short story would be a place for a good and credible change of Griffin's feelings. And now, in my opinion, it is the only one weak point of this novel - it is too short, it should be lon [...]
