As for now, it was the best of Clare Darcy I have read.I don't understand why she seems to be little known, I mean amongst fans of witty Regency romances. For me, she and Joan Smith were the best (of course the very best was G. Heyer, but I need not to tell you that ;-) ). In Joan Smith's novels there are more historical facts (than in Darcy's), one can learn more about those times and also about human nature. Clare Darcy's novels are funnier than Smith's. But I couldn't decide which one I like [...]

I'm sorry, Allegra, but you're just too much of a twit for me to handle.I did enjoy this book at first for the author's somewhat arch tone, and the promise of a heroine who was not bland, perfect and saintly. However, Allegra's repeated social awkwardness came off more cringeworthy than endearing. I also found her reasoning way too TSTL for me to enjoy, and just could not get into the story very well at all. I could tell that the author was going for something similar in style to Georgette Heyer [...]

Re-read, because after Heyer's Bath Tangle I was wondering from where I had misremembered a long, humourous final scene where the real main couple are chasing elopers that hadn't really eloped. When I finished this, there was a bit of it, but not really what I remember, too short and not quite Maybe it's all bloody memory and I'm destroying them one by one. Fact remains that Clare Darcy is the ONLY of the thousands of copy cats who actually immitates Heyer's style and feel, rather than just her [...]

Allegra Harrington, spinster, age 29 has had it with living with her crotchety old aunt. The only other place for her is to join her younger sister Hilary as an unpaid servant in another aunt's household. Allie's godmother presents the perfect solution: marry Sir Derek Harrington, the cousin who has inherited Allegra's father's title and estate. Allegra remembers Derek as an arrogant boy but agrees to give him a chance, until local gossip turns her mind against him. Too proud to marry out of cha [...]

This one has spies!This is a low 3-star. i don't actually recommend it, but if you're somewhere, snowed in, and you've read the other books, or they're all boring-looking, this won't offend you or dissolve your brain. Allegra herself seems pretty daft, but it all works out in the end. There's subplot, so that's a development. The writing style doesn't improve much over the three (of first published 5) novels I've read, but it's not tragically bad. The places it's the worst are pretty funny, actu [...]

Allegra and her younger sister are orphans with only onery relatives to live with. When a distant relative asks for Allegra's hand in marriage, and gives her a chance to regain her childhood home, she intends to say yes. Until he actually asks. After emphatically refusing him, Allegra takes her sister and runs away to Brussels to teach in a lady's college. Unfortunately, or rather, fortunately, her former suitor is there as well.This story had a lot of similarities to a Georgette Heyer novel, bu [...]

Not enough description of clothes or thieves' cant! I wonder if the author was trying to make her books more accessible by not using the "Regency" vocabulary or just trying to avoid being accused of ripping off Heyer? I also missed the vivid characterizations of the minor characters. Hilary does not come in to her own until the end.Much more could have been done with the governess

Another good Recency romance. The author attempts more humor in this book.
