    One thought on “My Lord Murderer”

    1. The premise was interesting, and I was inspired by the overall rating. Unfortunately, the writing was little clunky and more tell than do.Skimming started by chapter two, and I did read the ending but that was about all I could do.I think I was hoping for an edgy hero along the lines of Ruthless, The Duke, or What I Did For a Duke.

    2. This is basically more of a spoiler filled rant than a review, but since its my review I can write anything I want. :Dso here goes-I gave this book 2 stars because even though the characters were generally ok, I hated the plot was the hero and heroine love each other practicably from the beginning, but there is an impediment to their love type plot. Since most of the cheap quality bollywood movies use that plot, I can't be blamed for disliking it.(side note:I admit there are a few examples were [...]

    3. A tangled plotReminds me of Elizabeth Bennet's capitulation when she realized Darcy's true character. Gwen was an idiot and I don't know why Drew loves her. Tom, Hazel, Hetty and Wystan are all delightful!

    4. If you can ignore the silly chit who is the h, and love-at-first-sight, this is a lighthearted, decent read.h thinks H murdered/shot in cold blood, her drunk gambler of a husband (against whom she sometimes had to lock her bedroom door, when he returned home drunk and having lost money). He pursues, she acts like a touch-me-not, he pursues her some more. He's nice to her brother, he's nice to her mil (the drunk gambler's mother!), and he insists on not making details of the duel public (he raise [...]

    5. I just love Elizabeth Mansfield's books. "My Lord Murderer" is no exception.This story has an unlikeable heroine, one filled with hatred and disdain for the hero. Personally, I thought he would be better off without her, but he was determined that she was the only woman for him. No matter how much he did for her, she was ungrateful and insulting.So, needless to say, Gwen was not your usual heroine, but her brother Tom was a sweetheart. Drew, the hero, was honorable to the point he didn't want Gw [...]

    6. Finally. I was starting to worry that the Elizabeth Mansfield that I had liked so much before was a fluke for her. This was good. This was more than good. It moved along well and it had plot to it. Plus the characters were interesting and charming. I actually liked a lot of them and approved of them and their logic/motivation/quirkiness. It was actually a FUNNY book, too. Mind you, it wasn't perfect and there were moments where I wanted to shake the hell out of the heroine because she was very s [...]

    7. I just couldn't find much too like in this book. The heroine was ridiculously stubborn about her views about the hero's involvement in her husband's death during a duel, and he is over-honourably stiff-necked about telling her that her husband (whom she didn't love anyway) was a complete bounder and fired before he as supposed to during the duel. It's all over-done and padded out by excessive dialogue and a romance between the hero's best friend and a poverty-stricken girl who is engaged to a ne [...]

    8. Murder, dueling, secrets and liesA pathetic duel ending in a accidental death. A secret is vowed by those who witnessed it. Then the man who lived meets the widow and falls in love. And the widow sees a murderer. Quite a plot, skillfully done will keep you turning the pages in this very unique Regency Romance.
