    1. This was a very sweet tension filled story. I was curious as to the negativity and absolute hatred his father showed him. The couple and their love was so sweet and pure and it was sad that they were unable to share that love with people because their social standings were so different. I was so worried that they were going to be stopped on their way to Gretna Green. There were so many things going against them and so there were plenty of things standing in their way.


    2. The Earl of Welbourne of Welbourne Abbey, is looking for his son as he has skipped out of studies with his tutor. The staff covers for the lad which gets him away from his strict and mean father to enable him to spend time with the O’Rourke family. Simon Radley, Lord Woodbridge, age 15, lost his mother when he was age 5 and has been told nothing about her or her family. His father remarried and they have a son. His father has never liked him and his stepmother does not care for him either. She [...]



    3. I received a copy of the eBook from the author for my honest review.Simon and Claire a couple in love knew they were soulmates from a young age. Even though Simon was the heir to an Earldom and Claire the daughter of a horse trainer they shouldn't technical be allowed to be together. Although the Earl despised Simon he wasn't a true father figure to him, Claire and her family was more a family to him than the one he was born to.Simons mother had died when he was just a small child, and never kne [...]


    4. 3.5 stars Pretty much a mirror image story to A London Season. Both books explore class differences between a very determined pair of young lovers who will stop at nothing to marry, much to the chagrin of their parents/guardians. I thought A London Season was deeper and had better character development and simply sucked me in with more emotional investment. And well, that book had Jane who, i think at one point i described as "gangsta". But still I liked Simon and Claire in this book, enjoyed th [...]


    5. This was a well-written, enjoyable book. Clare is the daughter of the Earl of Welbourne's horse trainer and Simon is the Earl's heir. They have known each other since they were children and at 17 and 18 they are in love and want to get married. Their parents would oppose this unequal union, and the Earl has always hated Simon, his son. Simon learns that he has been left a trust fund from his mother's marriage settlement, and Clare and Simon decide to elope. These two had such a strong commitment [...]


    6. So many stories, so many years and still one of the top five in historical romance.I have every story that Joan Wolf has every written. I have loved them all! I doesn't matter what place in time it is from pre-history to contemporary. Joan can write them all.


    7. Lovely romance story about Claire and Simon, who want to get married, but come from two different worlds. Can it work, need to read the entire book to find out. You just keep reading, too much suspense otherwise to wait. Finally he has some funds on his own, but is it enough. Loved it


    8. Welcome back joanI have been a fan of joan's as long as she's been writing.I was so surprised this was out I thought it was a reissue , so wrote and asked her and she graciously replied it was new. It had a lot of suspense in it and kept my attention through out.


    9. It's like she took bits and pieces of her beloved regencies and came up with this story. It wasn't bad, but nowhere near as good as the original.
