Thanks for the light reading and the other two books for releasing. I’m reading a couple of quite depressing books (Why Men Hate Women and Guantanamo Diary) so this will give me some much needed escapism from some of the awfulness of the world.

Perfect escapism.

I read these alongside Lemn Sissay's My Name is Why (which although interesting is also a very sad book) so these provided a brilliant counterpart to that book!

I expected since these are Mills and Boon romance books that they would be sugar sweet and "out of time" in character for Regency. However, these did surprise me on that front. There were 2 books here by the same author - The Secrets of Wiscombe Chase and Lady Priscilla's Shameful Secret.

The Secrets of Wiscombe Chase
When Gerald Wiscombe returns from war he's determined to claim what is rightfully his! But suspecting his wife has been less than faithful in his absence, he intends to seek the truth. Lillian has endured all she can and now must face revealing the terrible secrets she has hidden for years.

Lady Priscilla's Shameful Secret
Outspoken Lady Priscilla is the only woman in London brave enough not to simper at Robert Magson. As the Duke of Reighland he needs a wife, and has this captivating woman in his sights! But Lady Priscilla doesn't wish to marry - ever - for she hides a shameful secret. Surely a duke deserves more than ruined woman?

I am glad that Mills and Boon has advanced from the over sweet romances which bear no resemblance to the period of time in which they are based. This writer is accomplished in this and has a much better semblance to the period they are writing about, and to my surprise I found that I liked both stories in this book. Both had unusual 'heroines', though Lillian was a more difficult one to warm to, and both would have been shunned ‘ruined women’ in their time. But these people can still love and be loved in return as is evident in both the stories. I preferred the second story in the book, but I think that was because I found Priscilla and her ‘secret’ much easier to relate to.

I have a plan for this book but it will have to wait for now.

Goodness, what fun. Plucked this from my 'read next' pile as wanting some easy reading that could sooth my way toward sleep. During the festive period while my head is going in circles attempting to organise stuff, a read that would be simple to pick up and lay down seemed most desirable. Have to say, to my surprise, this read turned to be far from simple to lay aside and I agree with Flutterbies9 in her Journal Entry (6). Nicely put. Everything about the skill of the author and the quality of the plotting and the direction M&B Romance these days. Books worth spending time with!

REGENCY ROGUES : DISGRACEFUL SECRETS by CHRISTINE MERRILL (2020) | ISBN: 978 0 263 27853 5 | Publisher: M&B
An omnibus comprising of two novels by Christine Merrill:
THE SECRETS OF WISCOMBE CHASE (2016)
LADY PRISCILLA'S SHAMEFUL SECRET (2012)
---------------------

Looks like this is destined for a wild release as the usual suspects (BCers who read Regency) Poodlesister and Flutterbies9 have already enjoyed this. I'll give it some thought!
