    Honestly, it was Ms Bright s humor that snared me.She created delightfully flawed characters I adored Thomas and Frankie Even the secondary characters, right down to Thomas s butler and the dogs were truly likable.So, there were a few historical inaccuracies They certainly didn t detract from the clever dialogue, the hysterical introspection, or a beautifully crafted story I found it to be a romping good romance I also enjoy a heroine who is vulnerable and is torn That s real life.Lady B Honestly, it was Ms Bright s humor that snared me.She created delightfully flawed characters I adored Thomas and Frankie Even the secondary characters, right down to Thomas s butler and the dogs were truly likable.So, there were a few historical inaccuracies They certainly didn t detract from the clever dialogue, the hysterical introspection, or a beautifully crafted story I found it to be a romping good romance I also enjoy a heroine who is vulnerable and is torn That s real life.Lady Belling s Secret was one of the most enjoyable books I ve read all year

    Extremely rare that I find a book that has me suspended and rereading parts just for the visuals Truly some well written moments with such clarity of characters Men, if you truly do wonder what a woman expects, needs, wants, and longs for, then truly READ this book I wanted to toss it to my better half, a half dozen times orTruly a wonderful book with some really sweet moments and really sweet endings, or should I say beginnings

    Amylynn Bright s writing reminds me of an early Julia Quinn She has the same light, humorous touch A littlematuring and she will be a great writer.The reason though that I couldn t award the fifth star is because of the odd historical mistake, and the most egregious is right in the title the heroine of the story, the one with the secret, is not Lady Belling Her mother is in fact Lady Belling A better vetting is all that is required here and I will be happy to award the star.

    Let me start by pointing out the title of this book should have been Lady Francesca s Secret As the unmarried daughter of a duke, our heroine would have been addressed as Lady Francesca, not Lady Belling This hero and heroine was a couple I couldn t warm up to Lady Francesca was apparently allowed to roam London without a lady s maid or companion She needed a lotsupervision, because clearly, she couldn t be trusted to make smart decisions Our hero was far from honorable Who has sex t Let me start by pointing out the title of this book should have been Lady Francesca s Secret As the unmarried daughter of a duke, our heroine would have been addressed as Lady Francesca, not Lady Belling This hero and heroine was a couple I couldn t warm up to Lady Francesca was apparently allowed to roam London without a lady s maid or companion She needed a lotsupervision, because clearly, she couldn t be trusted to make smart decisions Our hero was far from honorable Who has sex the first day they re reunited with their childhood love And that scene when he helps her in the park Instead of taking her home to her mother, he takes her to his house and has a bath prepared for her Then, things get a bit steamy again Her mother brings a clean dress over and waits in the drawing room while Lady Francesca changes Not once do the servants gossip about the scandalous behavior of these two Cause this is all perfectly normal behavior for this time period, right I m sorry but, nope This was a hot mess that I didn t find entertaining at all Too many social norms were broken and not dealt with severely
