    Sally Mackenzie has a knack for writing very loopy regency style romances They are overall fun to read and not be taken seriously So, if you want a good read with some outlandish scenes that will give you a good chuckle, this book is for you Robbie our hero has a small problem The least of his problems is trying to get tied down in marriage But certain parts of his anatomy won t work the way he wants it to The poor guy can t get over an embarrassing moment he had ten years ago, so he is Sally Mackenzie has a knack for writing very loopy regency style romances They are overall fun to read and not be taken seriously So, if you want a good read with some outlandish scenes that will give you a good chuckle, this book is for you Robbie our hero has a small problem The least of his problems is trying to get tied down in marriage But certain parts of his anatomy won t work the way he wants it to The poor guy can t get over an embarrassing moment he had ten years ago, so he is bereft that he will remain alone and never have sex again Lizzie is the sister of Robbie s childhood friend Her brother James was the hero in The Naked Duke She has loved Robbie forever and is ready for him to marry her Well, this almost happens as Robbie falls into her window naked trying to escape from a spinster harpy who wants him for his money Just read the first chapter and you will understand Because Robbie has these issues he tries to stop Lizzie from her marriage minded ways, but that doesn t stop them from kissing and touching everywhere and anywhere they can get their hands on Along for this ride is a secondary cast of characters that are beyond believable You will laugh and roll you eyes at their antics along with hoping Robbie can get over his trauma and be with Lizzie, a very sweet girl who adores him for just being him and not for his title or money One high point is that Mackenzie writes her heroes that are almost as innocent and naive as their heroines meaning no over experienced men who have a thousand women under their belts So for oversexed characters and campy conversations you will not find in any other romance historical, enjoy a few laughs with this campy story

    Men are very simple creatures They may be able to fight battles and build canals, but when it comes to emotions, they are hopelessly inept They go along merrily eating and sleeping and fornicating until something or someone interrupts them This book was cute but after a while it got really annoying The hero thought he suffered from impotence Yeah when he really got down to it, he was sorely mistaken.

    This was the story I had been wanting to read since book one and it did not disappoint.Robbie, Earl of Westbrooke, doesn t want to get married He will not be talked into it, convinced it s a good idea or tricked He would rather run across the rooftop naked than enter into a marriage unwillingly However, the window he chooses to hop through for refuge happens to house the very naked, slightly drunk and beautiful Elizabeth Lizzie , his best friend s younger sister When the naked man climbs in This was the story I had been wanting to read since book one and it did not disappoint.Robbie, Earl of Westbrooke, doesn t want to get married He will not be talked into it, convinced it s a good idea or tricked He would rather run across the rooftop naked than enter into a marriage unwillingly However, the window he chooses to hop through for refuge happens to house the very naked, slightly drunk and beautiful Elizabeth Lizzie , his best friend s younger sister When the naked man climbs in her window, Lizzie decides that she is done with being proper and won t be commanded to put on her nightgown I found that the idea of Robbie and Lizzie was a great one since being introduced to Lizzie in book one and her obvious attraction to Robbie I loved it since I first read it and wanted to read their story so I was super excited to pick this book up It did not disappoint.Robbie is hilarious as he does his best to avoid being caught in a marriage trap He even pushes Lizzie away when she is convinced that they will end up together, but doesn t explain why he says he will never marry Although usually a very happy guy in public it was nice to see another side of him where he had actual fears and doubts about his life I also loved how he did his best to keep everything a secret until circumstances forced his hand It was great I loved Lizzie as well She is a few years older in this story than she was in the previous ones and her attraction to Robbie is still strong She doesn t understand why Robbie keeps pushing her away and why he doesn t want to marry her, or anyone for that matter I also love how, even after events occur, that everyone has their hands in the relationship between the two of them It was hilarious and the way Lizzie handles it was great.Overall, I liked this story a lot and found that it was a great read I would read it again for sure

    Fun, rollicking read, but a few too many flaws to make this a reread or a series to continue Too many characters, too much going on, and what I think of as an old school romance trait scenes from the point of view of the villains, including sex scenes to make up for the fact that the hero and heroine can t have sex until they re married at the end Additionally, these scenes include the villain and villainess plotting the rape of the heroine, and later the villain attempting it, which wasn t p Fun, rollicking read, but a few too many flaws to make this a reread or a series to continue Too many characters, too much going on, and what I think of as an old school romance trait scenes from the point of view of the villains, including sex scenes to make up for the fact that the hero and heroine can t have sex until they re married at the end Additionally, these scenes include the villain and villainess plotting the rape of the heroine, and later the villain attempting it, which wasn t pleasant The excerpt from the sequel also involves the heroine of that book nearly getting raped The secondary romances a duchess married to an eighty something duke who s desperate for an heir and the man who s in love with her, and a sixty something chaperone who s been conducting an affair with her butler for the last forty years are farinteresting than the main characters On the plus side, the book moves quickly, and I really enjoyed the hero s reason for refusing to marry the heroine despite his love for her he s impotent I m not sorry I read it, but I won t be continuing
