    Lucy Dawlish and her mother have just returned to their home in England after spending some time in Italy to help Lucy recover from the murder of her fiancé, Mark Ravenscar. The Ravenscar family estate borders her family’s estate and she has grown up with Mark and his brother, Paul. Upon return to her home, she discovers that Lord Ravenscar, a widower, has taken ill and it is not known whether he will survive or not. Since Mark’s death, Lord Ravenscar has had sole responsibility for the estate. Captain Paul Ravenscar had been summoned by the Duke of Wellington to serve for some time in the war. While he felt guilty being gone, he felt it was his duty to his country to serve. However, now that he has learned that his father is ill, his has resigned his commission and has returned to Ravenscar to take up the reins of running the estate.Secretly, Lucy has always loved Paul but never felt that he would ever return her love. So when Mark proposed to her, she accepted knowing she could never love him more than as a brother.Lucy’s cousin, Judith, a wealthy young widow, comes to stay with her family. Just out of her mourning clothes, she has decided to spend some time in London and get on with her life. She and Lucy become close friends and enjoy attending soirees. Lucy is introduced to several men who show interest in her. Paul attends these events as well, but Lucy feels he is not truly interested in her when, in fact, Paul has always loved her.When a jealous suitor of Judith’s kidnaps her just after announcing her engagement to another man, Lucy is beside herself with worry. However, Paul steps in to search for Judith. Will Judith be found unharmed? Will Lucy and Paul realize their mutual love for one another?This was a sweet story with a nice plot and great characters. I look forward to reading more of Anne Herries’ novels.

    I wanted to enjoy this book and read it for a break from all the heavy reading, but it didn't click. It starts off strong and from Paul's POV, but then continues with Lucy's which is messy. Lucy is engaged to be married to Paul's elder brother, who is murdered. Paul always was in love with Lucy. But Lucy mourned for his brother for a year leaving the country. When she comes back, she realizes she's in love with Paul, who is now the heir to the Earldom. Midway her cousin Judith joins them and Paul lavishes all his attention on her. Another Earl Daventry comes to purchase horses and he pursues Lucy. So for three fourths of the book, everyone seems to be pursuing a love interest contrary to the main protagonist. It's a proper love square that has an HEA, but has a very convoluted journey getting there. The nice bits are Paul's angle and his devotion and admiration for his brother, the struggle to maintain his brother's nice boy image. That's the bets part.

    Captain Paul Ravenscar and Lucy DawlishUnknown year, Regency EnglandThis was pretty awful. The writing was terrible with unnatural and stiff dialogue that unnecessarily carried the role of exposition and background description. The basic premise of the conflict between Paul and Lucy too was a forced misinterpretation of what each was feeling. That kind of amateur angst grows old fast particularly where the characters swing wildly from one extreme ("I love him and I think he has feelings for me!") to another extreme ("Why is he so cold to me now, he must not love me, I hate him!"). Also, for those who care the book was chaste and clean for 99% of the book and then bizarrely tacks on an uninspiring but explicit sex scene in the last pages. So it should satisfy no one.

    Wow, I can't remember the last romance I read where the main couple was so damn boring.Oh wait, yes I can. It was the couples in Anne Herries's other Officers and Gentlemen books.I'd be much more interested in reading about Lucy's cousin's romantic history, since she's the only character in this entire series that actually has a personality, but I suspect that Herries would manage to retroactively make that (and her) bland and boring as fuck too.(And before you hop in and ask "if you hated them so much WHY DID YOU KEEP READING THEM," I just don't know. They were there, and I was desperate. It happens a lot with me, where romance novels are concerned.)

    Paul Ravenscar feels guilty for always wanting his brother's fiancée and feels guilt as well for being a little glad that his brother is dead and no longer in his way, now all he has to do is talk to her.Lucy Dawlish was having her doubts about love and her fiancé and now she has to face life without him, Paul is attractive but he seems to be avoiding her, should she look elsewhere?It's a pretty predictable romance, readable but nothing spectacular.

    I was in the mood for regency novel, and picked this book at random. I enjoyed it. Easy read, finished in 1 evening. I will keep the book and definitely reread in a few years.
