*Update- Just saw this has been republished and is now available for Kindle (under authors other name Alexandra Ivy) yay! **Not sure if the new versions are clean. I’ve heard they are not, but haven’t had a chance to look into it. I really enjoyed this one. It started out great, lots of tension between Molly and Hart. I actually would have liked if their dislike for each other was stretched out a little longer. It was entertaining seeing how they were trying to get the other to back out of the m...
Oh I love and have a weakness for a good clean traditional regency era romance where the hero and heroine go at it sparring in battle back and forth with determination because of their erroneous prejudices about each other and stubborn pride to only fall in love with just as much strength. This one definitely fit the bill *sigh*! This is a Zebra Regency Romance republished as an eBook under one of Debbie Raleigh's other pen names of Alexandra Ivy that she usually uses for her steamy titles. Sens...
Easy to read. Even though I love regency romance, I prefer Ivy's paranormal series.
I don't understand the mediocre rating of 3.58! This book is fun, funny and fabulous. I enjoyed it very much! I wish every book I picked up was as good as this one. The Hero and Heroine were both stubborn and chose only to see what they wanted to see about the other. Just loved it......ended so romantically! yay
I love the conceit of this novel: a meddling grandmother leaves her inheritance to her companion and her grandson, on the condition that they marry Christmas Day. Except they hate each other. There is a lot of potential to this plot, and for the most part, it came through for me. However, I really had a hard time liking the hero, Hart. He is constantly described as "very large, very male" (which doesn't really give me a good description) and he was just so unpleasant, all the time, that I couldn...
short and fun
I think this is a delightful read. I love the play between the two main characters. The ways they devise to try to get the other to cry off always make me laugh. The romance and situations are believable and leave you feeling good. Good side characters really make up the plot and story and fill in the gaps. I would recommend this to anyone with a little sense of humor.http://cleanromancereviews.blogspot.com
The Wedding Clause by Debbie Raleigh. Lady Woodhart's will Has Molly her companion in a dither. She gets half of 30,000 pounds if she weds her employers grandson Viscount "Hart" Woodhart and the entire 30,000 if he doesn't show up to marry her. He gets the same deal in reverse but he really doesn't need the money, but he believes that she is a gold digger.
Lovely funny sweet story! Loved it!Loved it! Fun story to see them go from enemies to their HEA. Very entertaining and funny. I really couldn’t put it down. I loved the monkey! Yes there was a monkey in the story (like all good books should in my opinion). I loved the fire in Molly’s demeanor and how she fought for what she loved. This was a battle of wits on who could outsmart the other and come away with the inheritance. The marriage clause made it all the more interesting. Once I finished thi...
In the forward, the author says this is reprint of one of her favorite books. The repartee and wit between the two characters who can only get the 30,000 pound inheritance if they marry each other makes this a much different regency romance. Also no irritating sex scenes....real romance, real hearts, and two characters who come to life more and more....and learn their pride and prejudice have blocked their vision. Molly is a solid, down to earth, practical lady, a nice change from all the belles...
3.5 stars I am mostly a dark romance reader nowadays, but every so often, I need a good historical, and this one didn't disappoint. I believe that my mood slightly brought down my enjoyment level, because it certainly had all things I love about these types of books.
This is a cute Regency romance. Ha! A fun plot. The picture doesn’t seem Regency exactly so don’t be deceived.
Historical romance story where they both overcome hurdles.
The idea was great, the execution was tedious. The writing is so formal and it is very difficult to believe the MCs' growing lust and love.
It was fun for light-hearted reading.
A Truly engaging storyThe battle of wills between hero and heroine sees sparks flying on a regular basis. The plot twists are novel and the characters delightful. Terrific story.
2.5 starsDespite some fun hijinks and a cheeky monkey, this was entirely too saccharine-sweet for my taste.
Quick, clean, enjoyable read. I read the version that was published under the name Alexandra ivy.
Well written, interesting and I didn't want to put it down. Loved the main characters! A slow burn romance to the end.
reread for the third time last night, no new books came in mail, public library still not open, spending far too much money over last 8 weeks. this genre is pure escape since Trump entered our lives.Heyer was a passion and know them by heart. but this loss of concentration of usual subjects from geology to physics/philosophy, linguistics, much history, has been eliminated. I even own a rare book and scholars bookshop and my preference remains regency romance. Some of it. Just finishedok, so afte...
Molly Conwell's life has been quite unremarkable - until she learns the startling details of her late employer Lady Woodhart's will: the sum of 30,000 pounds will be divided equally between the deceased's grandson, Viscount "Hart" Woodhart, and Molly if they wed. If one or the other fails to appear, then the present party receives the entire fortune. Molly has no intention to wed Hart, but if she inherits the money she could help her brother regain his proper place in Society. Besides, she's con...
Regency romance is one of my favorite genres. I enjoy Debbie's writing style, the emotion she evokes and her distinctly drawn characters. Loved the battle of wits between Hart and Molly. I was hoping there would be a book about Hart's cousin, Thorpe. I haven't yet seen if there is one or not. Definitely recommend.
Light and fun.
Clean and funny romance, I loved the sparks between Molly and Hart. Quite a bit of swearing in this book.
