    I really loved that Return of Scandal’s Son by Janice Preston is a believable and relaxing read. It is not over the top, which was a nice change of pace for me. There was still some adventure and the storyline was interesting and kept my attention. It flowed nicely for the most part and the writing is fantastic. I love how the author captures emotions so perfectly. It is all so beautifully written. The hero is an honourable and charming character. I was very drawn to him.

The heroine was very likeable and strong character, though a little calmer than I prefer. Overall a pretty wonderful read!

    Although I’m not a big fan of Regency novels, I know from past experience that I enjoy Ms Preston’s take on the period. Somehow she manages to capture the social mores of the time, the speech and the mannerisms that bring the period alive for me. Her knowledge of and research into the period is impressive. In this novel, the first in her Man About Town series, Eleanor is a Baroness in her own right, a rare event in any period.

In this novel, the first in her Man About Town series, Eleanor is a Baroness in her own right, a rare event in any period. When she and her companions are rescued from a coach accident by merchant Matthew Thomas, it becomes obvious that she has become a target for someone bent on causing her serious harm. Matthew swears to protect her even though he has scandalous secrets of his own and he knows he can never be worthy of her love. We follow the pair through a series of exciting adventures until a final, and very satisfactory resolution. The dialogue between Eleanor and Matthew fairly sparkles and I was easily drawn into their world. The second in the series ‘Saved by Scandal’s Heir’ is already ordered!

    This was an excellent Regency. I thoroughly enjoyed the story, which has an unusual heroine who is a lady in her own right. The author's research was excellent and she successfully brings the period to life. The hero is also unusual in that he's not apparently of the right status to be falling in love with the heroine. I loved the background history of both characters and thought the motivation was believable. The underlying mystery gave a touch of intrigue, and the resolution of that was done v This was an excellent Regency.

A relative newcomer to the genre, Janice Preston promises to become a stalwart and enjoyable addition to the Regency stable. A very worthwhile and enjoyable read. I thoroughly recommend it, and will be looking out for more from this author.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this Regency romance by Janice Preston. As always, the author's research shone throughout the story, and I found myself learning all kinds of things as I read. I loved that the main character, Eleanor, wasn't dependent on finding a husband for her security, and it was a great twist to have a male character trying to restore his honour for once. I loved the feisty relationship between the two main characters, and enjoyed the resolution to the story as well. I thoroughly enjoyed this Regency romance by Janice Preston.

    A romance wrapped in a mystery. Loved Eleanor and Matthew, they went through a lot to get their HEA. Not to mention a first look at the Duke of Cheriton and his family. And of course Hugo. I recommend it.

    Lady Eleanor Ashby goes to London for the season with her aunt after a suspicious fire in her home left it under repair. Along the way there is a also suspicious accident with their coach. This is where she meets Matthew Thomas. Matthew had been disowned by his father many years before and had just returned. He has many secrets and doubts as he is a merchant while Eleanor is very well off. Very interesting historical book to read. I received this book for free through Goodreads First Reads.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I found that I was truly able to enter this world so different from our own due to the excellent writing and research. I LOVED that the heroine was used to being in charge and indeed was titled in her own right. This is different from the unusal set-up. The chemisry between hero and heroine was great, very satisfying, and the pacing was good so that I was very motivated to keep reading right to the last page.

    I really enjoyed this book - right from the very first word. It really had a great flow between the characters. And I loved both the hero and heroine. I suspected who the "villain" was long before the ending BUT there was a lot I didn't "know" before it was disclosed at the end. I liked how the characters grew and we got to know them as the story progressed. Would definitely recommend. I really enjoyed this book - right from the very first word.
