A very silly book

Would give this no stars if that were an option. Cardboard cutout characters, silly plot, puerile humor and way over the top narration. The kind of facile treatment that gets historical romance a bad name.

Indeed,DON'T judge a book by its cover. Least, not this one!

I have enjoyed Karen Hawkin's style of writing in both ABDUCTION OF JULIA and A BELATED BRIDE so when I found out Kim Bennet was one of her pseudonym, naturally I was pique to read this one book under that name. However, I must admit, I was very hesistant at first cuz the front cover looked very silly to me. The guy looked weak and sheepish-not fetching for my kind of hero at all. I don't know exactly what made me change my mind but I am truly happy I ordered it in the end. This book provided me with a wonderful LAUGH all throughout my day off. After a long week of hectic work load, ONE LUCKY LORD is a perfect company for days off like today. In addition to the Editorial Reviews and Kim Bennet's words herself... I'd like to add how much I enjoyed both Fia and Thomas. Their love story was convincing and heart warming to me because it took time to develop. All the secondary characters ( & the comical animals) contributed a lot of spice to the story. Oh, the dashing, smooth talker Robert ~ I wish Karen Hawkin's would write a book just for him. I also love Duncan. A book just for him would also be an interesting read. My gosh, truly, how many books have made you smile, chuckle, giggle and then laugh out loud all in just one chapter? For me, It's "NONE" till this one.... I have never read such an all-out-amusing book, yet manages to be romantically touchy at the same time. Julie Garwood also holds a lot of humor in her works. That is why she is my top favorite author. I have enjoyed and loved her style eversince I begun reading historical romance novels but so far, base on this one, Karen Hawkin's/Kim Bennet's ONE LUCKY LORD simply topped it all in HUMOR. A lot of unbelievably comical and laughable scenes! Can't wait to lend this book to my sister. Oh, Umm... perhaps I should just ask her to buy her own copy. Can't part with this one just yet :-) Do yourself a great favor and read this book. Afterall, Laughter is indeed the best medicine.

Wonderfully Funny!

Delightful story about an infamous Earl (Thomas) who's good luck is legendary and a young lady who tries his patience at every turn (Fia) - and makes him doubt that his legendary good luck is holding! Thomas is on a secret mission to Scotland where he was to steal a "letter" that could cause/prevent a war from the Laird (DUncan). As it's a "secret" mission, he has to steal into Duncan's home to search for the letter and that's when he falls for Fia - literally - or rather Fia pushes him out of the window. Entirely by accident of course! Fia is Duncan's ward and is also on a mission - of a personal nature - she's determined to be a London playwright...And she's a kind soul who collects old/stray animals in need of TLC - the author did an excellent job of giving personalities to these woebegone animals. Their many abuses to Thomas' good nature will have you smiling! I found one of the secondary characters, Robert, quiet interesting - there's definitely anoter story there! Robert is a reknowned coward (throughout Scotland), a dandy - and once very briefly impersonated a regal "lady."ONE LUCKY LORD is a Keeper!

A laugh-out-loud love story

This lively tale has it all--from two unlikely fugitives camping out in the Scottish wilds, to the high seas, to Queen Elizabeth's court to a tavern where spies and intrigue lurk. And did I mention a really cranky horse who hates Englishmen? This romance is certainly not love at first sight. The story opens when the spirited heroine, Fia, shoves the Earl of Rotherwood out a window. Although it takes a few chapters for love to develop, the laughs begin on the first page and continue all the way to the last. It's the only book I can remember reading lately where I actually laughed out loud during the epilogue! I can't wait for Kim Bennet's next book, and, as another reader mentioned, I'm really hoping that she'll give us a book about Robert soon!

I am not a romance reader, but . . . . .

I laughed, cried, got angry, and rooted for (and with) Fia and Thomas. I am not usually moved by romance books, but this one is a real winner. I loved it. I will read this one again. I hope we hear more from Thomas and Robert. They were wonderful, warm characters.

What a wild ride!

Kim Bennet's madcap escapade is a laugh-a-minute adventure! Our hero is an earl who possesses the famed Wentworth luck, which immediately deserts him when he meets our heroine, Fia, cousin to a Scottish Laird. This book has it all...a soft-hearted yet spunky heroine, a handsome and charming hero, a cast of amusing and very human secondary characters--especially Robert! (I'm hoping he has a book somewhere down the line...) Added to all this is a political drama set against the backdrop of the reign of Elizabeth I. If you want to laugh and enjoy a tender love story at the same time, this book is for you. This author also writes for Avon as Karen Hawkins.
