Barbara Metzger is the author of more than two dozen Regency romances, and the proud recipient of a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award for Regencies. When not writing Regencies or reading them, she paints, gardens, volunteers at the local library, and goes beachcombing on the beautiful Long Island shore with her little dog, Hero. She loves to hear from her readers, care of Signet or through her Web site.From Library Journal:
Jacelyn (Jacey) Tremaine, a 17-year-old hoyden, is the indulged child of a sickly, widowed father. Lord Tremaine's bosom beau, Squire Bottwick, suggests a London season. After all no gentleman wants to wed a feisty young woman who is a bluestocking to boot. Enter Leigh Merrill, Earl of Claibourne, 32, fair-haired, impoverished. The villain is the hero's Uncle Fenton, a slave-trader. Metzger has provided enough diversions for three or four Regencies. As usual she writes with a dry wit; however, Jacey is a bit too obstreperous and the Earl too much of a high stickler for a rake. There is a bit more sex than in most Regencies. The ending goes on forever, but this is much better than what usually passes for Regencies today. Recommended.Paula M. Zieselman, Sarah Lawrence Coll. Lib., Bronxville, N.Y.
