#1 Bestselling Author in Regency Romance! 

One morning, along the wild Dorset coast, Sir Bertie is bewitched by Lady Catherine Redmayne. Smugglers intervene, and soon her life is in danger. Of course, Bertie feels compelled to protect her, but initially, Catherine believes him to be the menace. It doesn’t help that she is heartbroken and the subject of a scandal. 

First, Bertie must convince Catherine of his innocence, then uncover the real threat. Will she yield her injured heart to him? Several forces are at work to separate them, and, after all, he is only an ordinary baronet and she is a marquess’s daughter.

My Review

NOT AN ORDINARY BARONET is a sweet romance between a dashing rogue and a damsel in distress. Those familiar with the series, will be reunited with beloved characters from the other two books. Those who haven't read the other books, will still easily follow this story and enjoy getting to know these characters. There is a nice element of suspense and a wonderful family dynamic. Overall an enjoyable read.

There was quite a bit to enjoy about this story. I really enjoyed the beginning of the story when Bertie and Catherine first meet and the whole mystery that surrounds their meeting and what follows. I also thought their friendship was really sweet. Some of their misconceptions about each other added some tension and difficulties for them falling in love, but I knew they would get there eventually. My favorite character was Bertie. he seemed consistent and I loved how he came to Catherine's rescue and also how he adored his niece and nephew. He was just a great guy. Catherine was a little more finicky, but I did like her as well.

I also had a few issues. I was surprised that Catherine's former fiance was allowed near her by her or her brother, under the circumstances. It seemed they wanted to continue the scandal instead of quelling it, which seemed off to me. There were also a few areas where the story was slow for me. It did pick up again about two-thirds of the way through and then kept steady to the end. I thought the suspense could have been kept more consistent and the end of that was actually kind of anti-climatic.

In the end, was it what I wished for? I enjoyed this story for the most part. I would have liked more development in areas, but there were also parts that I really enjoyed.
