It's so easy
There is just nothing like a gifted author, and Anne Barbour is that!

I was quickly captured with this comment by our rake one dawn, suffering ennui following a rather demanding night: "Good God, he thought in dismay, had it come to this? Was he actually weighing his potential mistresses on a comfort scale?"

Our rake, Lord Bythorne, just doesn't stand a chance. He's beset by a charming, but recalcitrant ward, Chloe, and has his encounter of a lifetime with Miss Hester Blayne, England's premier feminist. He doesn't know it yet, but he's done for.

This tale is just perfect - fluid, graceful writing; witty narrative; humorous dialogue; LOL situations, and a sweetly developed love story.

We come to know the protagonists so well, and they're likeable. Even the secondary characters are explored in satisfying depth. The story moves at a spanking pace - not a single 'draggy' page.

And.....it is "period perfect"!

I must be in a certain mood to read some novels, but not this one. It's great! Right up there with my favorites. I hope you enjoy it - I did, immensely.

Exactly the type of story I love to read. I'm fairly sick and tired of all the same old, same old, sex filled regency romance novels being put out by some of the bestselling authors in this genre. Therefore, I'm continually looking for books that have a flavor of the Metzger/Smith/Heyer to them. Okay, I know that nobody compares with Heyer. But... there are some great authors out there who write really good stories that I enjoy. Anne Barbour is on the list.

In this book, we have our rake, Charles Trent, Earl of Bythorne (Thorne), who has the requisite wayward ward, Chloe. I actually liked Chloe and admired her efforts to try and do something about others' plans for her life - primarily that of selecting the man she would marry without giving her any consideration in the matter. When Chloe decided to run away, the fact she runs to Hester Blayne, tells you that Chloe was the type of young woman who was very discriminating about the type of person she considered to be a heroine.

Hester Blyne is not exactly a Mary Wollstonecraft who authored "A Vindication of the Rights of Woman," but she definitely has made a name for herself in her efforts to awaken women and men to the inequities of the social system of her day. I loved Hester. Although she would definitely be classified a radical for her day and time, she was at heart a woman of good sense and amazing values who decided to try and make a difference in her world by writing and lecturing.

When Hester reluctantly agrees to assist Thorne by becoming Chloe's companion for a few months, the foundation for the storyline is set up nice and tight. We then get to sit back and enjoy the fireworks, both minor and major as Hester and Thorne clash and come together again. There's actually a sweet secondary romance in this book - that of Chloe and a young man that she automatically disliked because he was her guardian's choice for her - but, eventually she sees his good qualities.

Lately, these types of books have become my reading staple. If anyone out there has recommends for me, I would appreciate hearing about them in the comments section.

This is my first Anne Barbour book and I for one like it very much. The attraction between the h and H was palpable and intriguing from the beginning. I thought it was overall very well written. The premise is a bit far fetched, a reformist and a rake coming together and falling for each other, but this is romance fiction so why not? I thought the circumstances that brought them together were plausibly presented, to the author's credit. I very much enjoyed the second and third love stories too! A small bone to pick, the end felt like another book to me. Here we see violence and chaos that felt forced and as if the author was overreaching to paint the H in a noble light. There were moments between the main characters that were very tender and I wish there would have been more of those, especially at the end.

Another enjoyable traditional Regency by this author. Whilst I'm not fond of 'feminist' hs in the Regency period, the author created a very likeable h in this book. Despite her views, she was still feminine and that isn't easy for a writer to get across. I wasn't always crazy about the H, he seemed a little too rash for me at times and what prevented me giving this book the 5th star was his stupidity towards the end. The h is the one who saves the day and this book is worth reading just because of her!

Good read. I enjoyed some of other work more.

I enjoyed Hester's character a lot, but her H isn't as likable. If it weren't for Hester's good sense this would have been a mess of a book. In the end I could understand why she was drawn to him, but I think she deserved a little better.

It was interesting read with a hint of dry humor. The author added some interesting topics not generally explored in a regency novel.

Rating: PG light innuendo, kisses (no sex)

The primary and secondary romances in this novel are delightful. Of the books by this author that I have read, this is by far my favourite. It is an enjoyable story with good romances and the hero and heroine are put through ridiculous misunderstandings. Also, while not without glancing references to sex, there is no sex in the story. A highly recommended read for fans off the genre.

The plot was very good. I get so tired of reading about feminist reformers that is so overwhelming it's nauseating. In this story it's such an intrinsic part of the plot it couldn't be written otherwise and, because it was so well written I didn't mind it as much.
It is a real good story. I give it 5 stars this one really deserved it.
I enjoy Anne Barbour's books for their humor, as well as for their portrayal of the regency era. A Rake's Reform is another in a series of light-hearted, entertaining books. The clash of new ideas, tradition, and a young girl trying to find her way in life are well represented by Hester, Thorne and Chloe. The author also does good job in painting the evolving nature of their personalities. Recommended for an enjoyable afternoon read.
