2 Trad. Regencies

A Proper Marriage

Written by Debbie Raleigh & pubbed by Zebra in 2002. A classic case of opposites attract & then don't know how to get along. Enter Vicar Humbly, who married them, a drop in houseguest who pokes prods & asks gentle questions thus assisting the union of two truly happy hearts. Excellent portrayal of pastoral care & counselling, the terror of in laws & the need to loved as you are.

Devall's Angel

Written by Allison Lane & pubbed by Signet in 1998. A young woman has only one Season to find herself a husband because her brother's marriage is imminent & she refuses to live with their mother in the dower house. Does she marry the man the Ton deems the catch of the Season? Or the man everyone has condemned yet who seems to be around whenever she needs rescuing? Surprisingly deep characterization for a short format Regency.

Both are keepers.

A Proper Marriage sounds right up my alley. Love opposites attract stories.

I've tried several times to add your blog to my Blogline subscriptions and can't. Do you have the feeds turned on?

Hmmm. Bev, I checked & according to Blogger my feeds are on. Dunno why you're having trouble. Maybe Maili could help?

Yes, we shall have to ask her to wave her magic wand and see what happens because I have no idea what to do now. Hmmm.

Off to RN to ask.

When she's on, Allison Lane is great. I really like Rake and the Wallflower, that's probably my favorite one of hers.
