    About “Claudia Dain

    • Claudia Dain

      It was while writing a descriptive essay in seventh grade English that was the assignment, to write a descriptive essay that Claudia first fell in love With descriptive essays Boys being what they are in seventh grade, there was hardly much choice By her ninth grade year, Claudia was spending hours each week in her bedroom writing descriptive essays that heavily featured older boys eleventh grade She also practiced her kissing technique on a pole lamp next to her bed It was less than satisfactory, but the writing was fun She attended the University of Southern California as an English major She d mastered kissing by this time and writing, strangely enough, was still fun Strangely because while it had become obvious to her that almost everyone enjoyed kissing, it was equally obvious that very few people enjoyed writing This was as peculiar to her as, well, not enjoying kissing Clearly, something had to be done The idea of combining kissing and writing seemed the obvious course of action While Claudia does not claim to have invented the romance novel, she certainly has a lot of fun describing kisses and inventing men to bestow them upon And not a one of her heroes looks remotely like a pole lamp And don t act like one either Claudia was first published in 2000, is a two time Rita finalist, and a USA Today Bestselling author Which just goes to prove that you can make a career out of kissing and writing about it.

    • It should be a criminal offense to put the word "Duke" into the title of a romance novel, just so the reader could be lured in, only to come away from the experience feeling betrayed. How an earth could an author have written sooooooo many words and not have one interesting thing to say?


    • I don't know why I like Claudia Dain so much. Her books are just fluff with really little story unless you've been reading the entire series. But I do enjoy them a lot. So far, Sophia, Lady Dalby, has matched three couples, none of whom ended up with the person they had supposed. This book is no different. Penelope Prestwick wants to marry a duke and she specifically wants the Duke of Edenham. So she begs Sophia, a famous former courtesan for help. Hours later she's in the same room as him but a [...]


    • As usual, I loved Claudia Dain's witty dialogue and reparties. I wasn't overly impressed by Iveston's person (described as a beautiful man, but otherwise his personality was a little flat, imo) but I truly enjoyed Penelope. What a wonderful girl and with such an unusual personality! She was very enjoyable and so was Sophia, as always, although I wish we'd seen more interaction between her and Lord Rohan. Also, 4 stars instead of five because the action of the whole book, bar the last chapter, ha [...]


    • This was a bodice-ripper, but it was handled differently than most. An arch, very humorous tone was maintained throughout, and the entire first section takes place in one continuous scene, which was very well done. It is not as steamy as most, but our prim and forthright heroine, Penelope Prestwick, is perfectly lovely in her determination to marry a duke. Her intention to marry a specific duke even though she has caught the attention of anther one, makes for many comic interludes.One note - thi [...]


    • What a delightful Historical Romance Novel. As you read here is a story that reads like one is watching musical chairs. A very young determined women wants to marry a Duke. She incorporates help, but also takes things into her own hands. There are two prospects. Wages are made and the ending may surprise you. The setting is in England. At first I had trouble following the conversation because of the style of language, but after furthering myself into the story line, it was quite entertaining. Th [...]


    • The story was decent, although jammed into a much smaller time period than I expected. My big pet peeve was the author's habit of ending one scene with a sentence and opening the next with a similar sentence. (For example: e hoped so. ~ "Dare I hope") The first time I noticed it it was cute and clever. After 75 similar uses, it just freaking bugged me. A lot. While I don't exactly rue the day I read this, I don't think I'll be reading the rest of the series.


    • Everything happened supper fast! i was intrigued by the pace of the story but it was so very thrilling to read. I love this book so refreshing to read! i can't help but wonder if the couple will separate someday because it felt unbelievable that they fell for each other in one day! Nonetheless it was impossible for me to put the book down!


    • LOVED this book. Same awesome, sharp, realistic dialog I have come to expect from Claudia Dain's books. I will probably end up buying this series and reading and re-reading it!!! I mean, if you know what's coming and you STILL enjoy every moment of it, that is good writing. Kudos Claudia Dain! Now to get my hands on your fifth book.


    • This is the book I liked in the series so far. I liked the characters and it never fail to amaze me that the plot just happened in 1 day. I like Penelope and Iveston. They're perfect together Im excited about Duttton's book!!!!


    • This is my favorite of the series. The heroine is as headstrong as the others, but so much less whiney, and we learn much more about Sophia's past and why she's doing what she's doing. Hurrah!


    • By far my favorite of the series thus far; practical, forthright heroines and peculiar, seemingly mild-mannered heroes are the best.


    • Unlike most romances, this one took me a long time to read. It stays in your head and is not very sensual. I only finished it because I bought it.




    • I started this Regency series by local author Claudia Dain and I feel compelled to finish it, even though the quality is not as good as the first few.


    • This book is absolutely charming! I was giggling and swooning constantly all at once. This is light historical, regency-era romance fun, sensual and sparkling with intelligence.


    • I really liked Lord Iveston in the last book so glad this was his story I also wasnt sure of Lady Penelope but she really changed my mind in this book
