    The Double Wager

    I'm thoroughly enjoying catching up with Mary Balogh's early works. Once again it's very clearly inspired by Georgette Heyer. This one has borrowed chunks of characters and plot from The Grand Sophy and April Lady. Mr Ridley is very clearly related to Charles Trevor in Frederica. However the whole comedy works delightfully.

    Mary Balogh / Georgette Heyer

    This was not exactly a classic Balogh novel, but instead much more like a classic Georgette Heyer, only with a few added sex scenes. Since I adore both Heyer and Balogh, I greatly enjoyed this story. The male lead had the classic droopy eyes and soft drawl characteristic of Heyers heroes, and the female lead the sort of childish silliness also found in Heyers heroines. The adventure and storyline were also very in line with Heyer. It does lack the degree of self reflection and relationship development Balogh is so good at, although its not entirely absent. Balogh does this wonderful companionship to love thing that is missing, but its still a lovely, fun and entertaining story.

    The double wager

    Fun story and yet sad as well main character was special and had spunk and an independant and yet very compassionate streak.
