    Unexpectedly engrossing

    Different perspective and beautifully written, the story opens with an unusual lead into a really charming and engrossing story. A courtesan, a notorious rake and his licentious friend would seem to make for an obvious storyline but this is a cut above.... The timeframe stretches over years and the characters develop accordingly. I will miss Becky and Hugh and Aldridge, particularly Aldridge...."being Aldridged" had me laughing out loud...what a rogue......A very grown-up Regency novel

    What to say that can sufficiently describe this story? It seriously tore at my heart and I almost could not continue to read a couple of times as the story turned unexpectedly. Jude Knight has an amazing gift and her words always bring forth emotions that I have to remind myself, this is fiction. She makes it so real though, and I always become vested in her characters. They are imperfectly perfect with their scars, hidden and visible, with a history that is often almost unbearable, that come out gradually. Becky had such a hard life and did what she had to do to survive. The daughter of a librarian for a peer, she was extraordinarily smart and knew how to comport herself. But when he father died she was on her own. I know you have read the blurb and other reviews so I will not go there, but her unexpected meeting with Aldridge was the catalyst that changed her and her daughter Sarah's life. Through him, she met Hugh, the most emotionally wounded of all who in the end might bring her what she longed for... All I can say is to read this brilliant book by Jude and I do mean that sincerely, because it is far beyond just a simple historical romance. Beware though because your emotions are in for a roller coaster, but it will land perfectly as it should.

    Beautiful story!

    Let me say, Love love love! I absolutely ate this story up! I only put it down to eat dinner! Lol, I ate lunch reading. I adored this book. Though short, at 157 pages, there is an entire story here. Not just a short thought. Becky, also known as "The Rose of Frampton," poor dear, was put through so much! I literally teared up at one point in the book. Starting out as the book did was a great way to introduce characters that would play a role in the story. A man passed out in a garden house, a woman in desperate need of escape! Her rescuer is a sensible man, though he has lived the life of a rake, he is kind. which is shocking to her. Becky has been tossed around like a possession most of her life. But Aldridge takes her and her daughter in and treats them both well. Keeping the details of their relationship away from the daughter. Aldridge's friend Hugh Overton is a rake of the first order! He has no direction since his wife and child passed and only his 2 step-daughters to worry about. Aldridge comes up with an idea that may benefit everyone. We will just have to see if the people most affected by the plan agree! There are characters to despise in this book, and characters you feel for. A true emotional romp.I love the way Jude Knight writes. You can almost see some of the settings and room decor that is described. I also appreciated the " cleanliness" of the story. Usually, a story of a kept woman gets fairly dirty. But I was happy it did not. I must say, the author has given us another beautiful story! The only thing I would wish for was more of Aldridge's story! *I received a copy of this title in exchange for my honest review.

    A Baron for Becky, A Well Written Story

    This is the first book by this Author that I have read.I found this story to be different from most regency stories that I have read which was a really nice change. So much happens within this story. A book that is well worth reading. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
