I reviewed this book for Romance Reader At Heart website:RRAH's THOUGHTS AND PONDERINGS: In The Golden Feather, we¿re introduced to Justin and Caroline.Caroline Aldritch is the owner, by default, of The Golden Feather, a gaming house she inherited upon her wastrel husband¿s death. She¿s left with no choice but to run the place herself, put some money to the side, and eventually get rid of it and start living the life she always wanted¿as a Lady. In order to do that, it was necessary for her to wear a disguise. After four years, she feels that the time has come to sell the place, pick up her sister Phoebe from school and start living her life as a respectable lady. On her last night at the club, she meets Justin and his rowdy younger brother, Harry.Justin Seward is a middle son of the Earl of Lyndon, a rake and a scoundrel of the first order, who, upon getting shot at a duel, gets banished to India. Four years later, Justin¿s father and brother are both dead, and he becomes the new Earl. Upon his return, he finds out that his younger brother Harry is fast becoming a rake of the first order himself, so Justin decides to accompany him to The Golden Feather in order to keep an eye on him. This is where he meets Caroline, and the sparks start flying for both of them.This is a fast paced, very sweet and delightful romance that grabs you from page one. Caroline was such a great character, strong and poised, while Justin complemented her with his charm and wit. I just fell in love with the secondary characters of Harry and Phoebe. His love of brightly colored attire, and his attraction to Phoebe and her fashion of the same, were priceless! If you¿re in a mood for a lighthearted romance with very few complications and a lot of fun, you won¿t go wrong in reading this story.In The Rules of Love, we¿re introduced to Rosalind and Michael.Rosalind Chase, a widow and a headmistress of a school for girls, is supplementing her income with writing a book, A Lady's Rules for Proper Behavior. She¿s also a sister to Allen, an irresponsible young man who¿s been piling up gaming debts.Michael Bronston, Viscount Morley, is a very well-known poet; a charming, laid-back rake and a rule-breaker. All of London¿s Ladies, and especially the girls at her school, are reading, quoting, and following the rules. In order to help pay her brother¿s debts, Rosalind keeps coming up with more ideas for her books of rules. Lord Michael Morley¿s sister, Lady Violet, is one of her students, and on the day when he arrives to pick her up for a holiday, Rosalind can¿t help but be brash with him as she believes that he¿s the one that is leading her brother to ruin. The encounter between the two leaves Michael confused as he glimpses a side of Rosalind that even she¿s not yet aware of. The chemistry between the two leads was electric.Michael¿s a bit irritated by the whole ¿rule following¿ book, so he decides to break as many as he can, and here¿s where the fun begins. Misconceptions and misunderstanding are the order of the day through most of this witty and fun story.Again, I got taken in by secondary characters of Michael¿s sister Violet, who was such a sweet girl; and Allen, Rosalind¿s brother, who cleaned up quite well.Ms. McCabe had too much fun setting these two up, and I had to laugh out loud reading the antics of these two totally opposite personalities as they slowly come to realize that they¿re perfect for each other.If you are looking for a romance filled with humor, wit and charm, IMPROPER LADIES is for you.I loved both of these stories so much that I went and bought SPIRITED BRIDES, SCANDALOUS BRIDES and ROGUE GROOMS. All three feature two stories each, and I loved every one of them. Melanie
