Rivals of Fortune / The Impetuous Heiress

Jane Ashford delivers two lovely traditional Regency Romances with this Historical duo. With Rivals of Fortune we meet Joanna Rowntree a broken-hearted young woman who although at first glance is rather dramatical circumstances help her to transform into an impressive young woman. I will honestly admit that I was not a fan of the young woman in her first few scenes but her personality grew as the story unfolded. Jonathan Erlen impressed me from the first words he spoke and I appreciated his maturatey and authenticity. In the Impetuous Heiress we encounter a sexy Scot and really what romance fan doesn't love a stubborn hero. And what does every stubborn hero needs a spoiled heroine and Lady Alicia Alston is definitely that. The interactions between these two are the perfect combination. I enjoyed the little historical details in the stories that brought the timeline to life without overpowering the story and drowning the reader in details. This author writes with an impressive vibrancy that I look forward to experiencing every time I read one of her stories.

Readers get a fabulous two for one in this book with two classic Regency romances. In Rivals of Fortune young Joanna Rowntree believes she is heartbroken when her neighbor marries another but then she finds herself being wooed by not one but two gentlemen. Who will win her over the dashing London dandy or the sensible Continental suitor? In The Impetuous Heiress Lady Alicia Alston finds herself expecting proposal from the Earl of Cairnyllan but Ian MacClain has no plan to give the spoiled duke's daughter what she wants. How can these two ever find a compromise?
