His Lordship's Last Wager: A Regency Romance Between Bitter Enemies Reviews

  • Christina ~ Brunette Reader

    As with the previous two books in The Horsemen of The Apocalypse series, Miranda Davis had delivered another delicious Regency romp and another lovely romance smoothly blended together.

    It’s a match of wits, wills and hearts. Lady Jane and Lord Seelye, the feisty heiress and the impoverished dandy make for a very engaging couple, leading the reader on a merry chase from London to Ireland and back and punctuating their mad-camp adventure with sparkly banter and amusing interactions.

    As with the previous two books in The Horsemen of The Apocalypse series, Miranda Davis had delivered another delicious Regency romp and another lovely romance smoothly blended together.

    It’s a match of wits, wills and hearts. Lady Jane and Lord Seelye, the feisty heiress and the impoverished dandy make for a very engaging couple, leading the reader on a merry chase from London to Ireland and back and punctuating their mad-camp adventure with sparkly banter and amusing interactions. The zany mood and the polished writing both contribute in recreating the atmosphere of a classic screw-ball comedy, while the imaginative and smart narrative is to savour line by line as much as the characters’ antics.

    A fun ride from start to finish and once again an original read in this author’s unique voice, deftly combining a more “modern” pace and spiced-up love story with a fine wordsmithery harkening back to the best genre’s tradition.

    The long awaited third instalment of Miranda Davis' deliciously, quirky Horsemen of the Apocalypse Regency Romance series in which the previously dreadful Lady Jane Babcock gets her comeuppance when she clashes with the secret object of her affection, Lord Seelye Burton. A ridiculous journey ensues concerning one brown bear, a crazy boat trip across England's canals and the seemingly mismatched couple finally putting aside their differences to find glorious love in true Miranda Davis style with

    The long awaited third instalment of Miranda Davis' deliciously, quirky Horsemen of the Apocalypse Regency Romance series in which the previously dreadful Lady Jane Babcock gets her comeuppance when she clashes with the secret object of her affection, Lord Seelye Burton. A ridiculous journey ensues concerning one brown bear, a crazy boat trip across England's canals and the seemingly mismatched couple finally putting aside their differences to find glorious love in true Miranda Davis style with wit and aplomb.

    A tad convoluted at the beginning and at over 400 pages it probably could have done with a little bit of editing and trimming of some superfluous scenes but overall another enjoyable and witty romp. And as Ms Davis herself describes it.. not just another run of the mill Regency romance.

    3.5 - 4 stars.

    Wow. Anyone interested in canals and locks and how they all work in England? If so, this is the book for you. I struggled to maintain my interest and barely made it through to the end.

    There was only one really interesting part in this book, and that was when the hero told his war story (rescued his mate in Spain). That was fascinating. But the whole bear rescue/canal trip and so-called "wagers" regarding getting people hitched by the end of the season was just a bit boring.

    I didn't find the story very romantic, either, and the scene where the heroine

    hopes to prevent the hero from participating in a (ridiculous) duel was beyond believable. And simply wrong. And kind of

    .

    The author is fascinated with many historical aspects of the time. Perhaps she could write a non-fiction book about these things. (She writes really well.) But Historical "Romance"? A misnomer for this book, I feel.

    Well, wasn't this a tremendous letdown. Seelye was my favourite Horseman, and this book ruined him beyond repair for me, partly for the terrible story the author gave him and partly for the horrible heroine he got hitched with, who was already shaping up to be unpromisingly obnoxious in past installments, but whom I'd not have thought of as

    And no, the backstory of Seelye's exploits during the Napoleonic war isn't enough to redeem the book; if anything, it fleshes out the hero a bit, and not much at that. Given how long it took to complete this, one would've expected a better story, and definitely a better romance than what was delivered.
