I was so sad to read about Jo Beverley’s passing this morning when I finally logged onto the internet after several days of electronic vacation.
She is one of handful of authors whose books always made it to my keeper shelf to be read, re-read, and enjoyed over and over again. I am on my second and third copies of many of her books.
It was her writing that triggered my love of Georgian and Regency history, as well as all things English, when I began reading historical romance novels.
Lord of My Heart is the first book of hers that I read. As one reviewer said, it was “witty, slightly bawdy, [and] gently emotional without being overly sentimental.” The characters were wonderfully drawn and the story captivating, and by the time I had finished it I was well and truly hooked.
