An unexpected escapism box arrived on Thursday and as I was having pc problems I did not manage to journal the books before now. Apologies.

I am sure this will be read quite quickly and will be passed on asap. I do like the 'Henny' book label in this one, I'm not conscious of seeing it previously.

Well this book surprised me. There was more accuracy in the time period in this one than the previous book I had read! Not what I expected from a Mills and Boon. However, much as the time period manners were often well respected, the behaviour of the female characters was decidedly 'modern'. Both these authors I had read very recently in another book so there were no surprises to the writing quality.

That said, both these tales were enjoyable romps and pure welcome escapism.

Arrived by post this Monday with four other Regency treats for which, many thanks all, and an exciting surprise as not Halloween Spooky bookies like I was expecting! I recall reading a copy of this book many years ago, and believe I left it in Lochland Chalets, near Dounby on the West Mainland of Orkney. However I’m hoping it was so long ago another read through will be amusingly refreshing, we’ll see!

LORDS & LADIES (Miranda’s Masquerade [1995] & Gifford’s Lady [2002]) by CLAIRE THORNTON & MEG ALEXANDER (2006) | ISBN: 9780263844269 | Publisher: Harlequin M&B
---------------------

MIRANDA’S MASQUERADE by CLAIRE THORNTON [1995]
An entertaining hoot! Mistakenly believing Lord Adam Heston was about to propose, Fanny Gaysford in a hissy fit refuses to see him. Instead Fanny manipulates her identical twin Miranda into pretending to be her. Reluctantly Miranda agrees but after Adam insults ‘Fanny’, believing her to be a young miss on the make Miranda in a fury pretends to misunderstand his intent then [OK bizarrely] accidently finds herself betrothed! Finding Adam willing to call her bluff Miranda and he find themselves in each-others company repeatedly. In this confused turn of events, Miranda’s position becomes unbearable as she falls in love with the arrogant aristocrat but if she reveals her deception she would lose the one thing that now really mattered to her - Adam!

GIFFORD’S LADY by MEG ALEXANDER [2002]
A riot of drama that was rather endearing! Miss Abigail Summers watched in shocked fascination as a man leaped naked from the house across the way. Fighting his own nightmares, Sir Clifford Raven was a man of action, not comfortable in Bath's polite society. Yet impulsive Miss Summers intrigued him and he knew she could help him drive his devils away....

ADDED: SUN 09 DEC 2018 – OK apologies no release notes and those LATE reading notes above as a swift rummage for books to release at a meeting this afternoon found me stumbling upon this forgetting I hadn’t completed my BX admin on it but whisking it away none-the-less. So thanks go to earthcaroleanne [see below] for looking after it at the end of today’s BookCrossing meeting.

We weren't allowed to leave any books at the Filmhouse OBCZ this month so it's come home with me because I think I might know someone who might like this.
