If you love feisty heroines, then Cat is for you! Laurie Bishop is gifted at mixing romance with witty banter, and I love how Lord Weyland "helps" her find the perfect husband. This is a really fun book.


just read this book last's a very quick read, pretty short. anyway...this book is pretty cute, weyland sure is a likable character, and cat is your untypical regency character. the romance was slow to come which is nice...but i can't say i really liked how cat came onto him and not the other way around so much. also there was pretty much no sensuality in this novel, which was surprising. it would have been more fun with that ;) that's why i took away a star. ah, also the ending seemed really rushed...

If You're Looking for a Wickedly Witty Regency Romance . . .

If you're looking for a wickedly witty regency romance, look no further! This book is a delight! The heroine is a bit annoying at first, but, once you get to know her as you proceed in the book, she quickly grows on you. Her love interest one is easily fond of right away because he is SO charming a character! It is an extremely funny book and very romantic! Both of the main characters have these little quirks that just match up with each other very well. Catherine has a list of eligable men to get married to. Unfortunatley when she meets up with Jack, he is not on her list. So, she pushes aside whatever attraction she has for him, goes along with her plans. Luckily, it's not so easily put aside. Jack lives close to where she's staying at her cousin's house. Jack is attracted to Catherine, but has the ability to hide it and does so as much as possible because he has an astute sense of pride and dignity. Catherine, though into clothes, remains a practical character who would not shy away from lifting up her skirts way past the ankle to prevent it from dragging in the mud or water. The two principle characters also engage is an almost, unwittingly, flirtatious banter which grows increasingly heated as the story goes on and their attraction to each other increases! : "'She is too young.' [Catherine says] 'She is old enough, it seems.' 'Not for you.' 'What? You would have me bowlegged and gray at eight and twenty?' 'Do not be absurd. It is your age relative to hers.' 'And I suppose your own age is of no consequence.' Cat straightened her shoulders. 'I am two and twenty.' 'I now see.' 'Do not attempt to make fun of me, Lord Weyland. Miss Millington is eighteen at most and very inexperienced. I am quite different, and well you know it.' His eyes narrowed slightly. 'Do I?' 'If you do not, then you have not the perception I thought you possesed.' 'And if YOU are wrong about my perception, might that say something of your own discernment?' Cat drew a shaky breath. The man was driving her quite mad. He stood so close, and stared at her in such a way, and persisted in bandying words with her, when all she wanted from him was to assist her to mount her horse! She wanted nothing more of him. Surely, she did not." One of my favorite moments is when Jack (Lord Weyland) has to take Catherine across the river or stream, whatever it was . . . On his horse and it's a hard path to negotiate. Catherine has to sit in front of him. Throughout the entire incident, Jack desparatley to concentrate on his task, but Catherine's closeness was very distracting. It is so funny to visualize, which the author gives just the right amount of info so it is possible, Jack fighting his . . . *ahem* manly urges: "Miss D' Eauville reached down and grasped a handful of her skirt, gathered it safely above the rising water, and pressed aga
