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

  • Searock

    Update! I'm finished and feel "topped up". It was wonderful.

    The whole series is fun, but Seelye's story has it all: Fab banter between all the characters; brilliant scenes between the horsemen; one of my favorite heroes of all time; some of the best side characters (I'm looking at you, George!); a bit of "road romance"; some shocking turns, and the loveliest denouement ever, ever. *sigh*

    (Question: Is there such a thing as an Oxford semi-colon?)

    Real review to come!

    Someday.

    Soon.

    *snort*

    Some quotes:

    "Such a man had to gamble that his efforts to impress ... would ... pay out before the bailiff plucked the peacock's plumage from his backside."

    "Oh Exmoor, he'll starve to death and be found in dirty linen, stripped of everything Gimlet can pawn."

    It's here! It's here!

    The GR Amazon link isn't working yet, but it IS over there. You can find it here:

    Today's the day!! It's 3:30 pm on Christmas Eve. Merry Christmas everyone!

    What is this, you ask? Well, let me tell you, it's the next book in a series I love and I have been waiting about 4 years to read it! Has it been 4 years?

    *checks watch*

    It feels like 4 years.

    But Santa is on his way!

    And he is adding a little something special to my stocking this year!! Yahoo!

    The first two books series have been on my keeper shelf since way back and Seelye’s story is finally, finally, finally, FINALLY coming out … Christmas Eve.

    How appropriate for such a sweet, thoughtful, perfect prezzie! I'm getting a little callous on my reload button finger and *sigh*, it's still not here, but any moment now ...

    I know my fellow Goodreads readers will understand the nutty thing that happens when you have a series you love and the next book is on the way. I’ve been sneaking back in here every few months

    to find out if there’s an update on the progress of THIS book. I’ve been like a specter haunting this poor author’s GR homepage just poking and hoping.

    *Checking old threads*

    “Anyone know if there's a new blog post?”

    “Hey, does the author have another website somewhere I could check?”

    “Hey, has anyone seen any updates?”

    “Anyone? Anyone?”

    So, maybe I’m a just a freak (entirely possible). Or! Or maybe there’s just a certain kind of fizzy charm to Miranda’s writing that’s utterly irresistible.

    My life has not been complete without this book.

    If anyone else is waiting for this gem, let me know. I'm down for a buddy read. I’ll just be over here, counting down the minutes …

    Lord Sealy's turn at matrimonial blundering. This is a clash between a witty, elegant dandy and the sister of his childhood friend George, the Duke of Bath. Lady Jane has turned into a diamond of the first water and has been rejecting suitors right and left waiting for Lord Sealy's return from the war. Unfortunately war is what she gets when she meets him again after 10 years. How this involves a bear is an amazing thing to discover as you read through

    Lord Sealy's turn at matrimonial blundering. This is a clash between a witty, elegant dandy and the sister of his childhood friend George, the Duke of Bath. Lady Jane has turned into a diamond of the first water and has been rejecting suitors right and left waiting for Lord Sealy's return from the war. Unfortunately war is what she gets when she meets him again after 10 years. How this involves a bear is an amazing thing to discover as you read through the fast paced action in this most original plot.

    This series has been filled with original circumstances that occur in no other Regency Romance. Not only is the author 's mind brilliant in casting her poor characters into thorny problems but the dialogue is witty, sharp and sometimes hysterically funny. Each of the Horsemen have distinct personalities and quirks which of course conflict with their future intended. Of course love will win out in the end. Now we have 3 of the Horsemen attended to. One more is left. Can't wait, but of course I will anyway.

    While this didn't have the punch that the first book did, it was still fun in a lot of ways. Seeyle has come back from the war a different man and Jane has become a differnt woman than the imp that Lord Seeyle knew. We met Jane in the first book and she wasn't a nice person and she hadn't changed a bit. She has her reasons, misguided though they are. It took our hero awhile to see the error of her ways and it took Seeyle awhile to see the error of his. There were some laugh out load moments espe

It took our hero awhile to see the error of her ways and it took Seeyle awhile to see the error of his. There were some laugh out load moments especially when Seeyle would beseech the heavens...it was pretty funny. The bear incidents were too funny. George talking to his "Bump" about what to do about Seeyle and Jane was too cute by half. If you haven't read anything of Miranda's, start with the first book and work your way to this book. There is some needed background and character development. I know Miranda went through a lot of personal situations in order to bring us this book and I for one am grateful that she didn't give up. Can't wait to see how the story turns out for Ms Shyboots and the Shister aka Lord Percy(or is he???) :-) Happy Writing Miranda!
