Signet Books was an imprint of the New American Library (NAL), which was established as an autonomous American publishing house after branching off from its British-based parent company, Penguin Books. Signet had the longest running Regency series, beginning in the late 1970s and ending in February 2006. It generally published three books each month, though this varied over the years. Signet also produced reissues, both of their own previous releases as well as those of other publishers.

Having lived her life in the shadow of her older sisters, Elizabeth and Henrietta, Alissa is certain that Lord Ives will not even notice her

Emily has outdone herself in this masterful work. The setting, the plots, and the characters were all magnificently portrayed, with a sense of humor along the way. The hawks and the settings on the moors make this book truly unique. The novel was clean and quaint. I loved every moment of it. I wish Emily would write more Regency romances. They are true gems!

A charming and sweet story of an innocent and shy young lady who falls in love with one of London's most handsome men, Lord Ives. This was one I liked very much! I loved how the young lady slowly overcame her shyness around the Lord the more time they were together and watched their love bloom.

I can always count on Emily Hendrickson to keep me entertained. I have two dozen of her books and counting. If you are a Georgette Heyer fan, you will lover her books.

I get a bad feeling about a book when the back cover does not match what's inside. That seems like a sad editing problem or whoever wrote the "teaser" couldn't make it through a synopsis! Alissa ffolkes is the OLDEST daughter of the Baron ffolkes and as such should marry before her sisters. But she is shy and having "not taken" during her first season was sent home early. Will she have to endure another season? The next oldest sister Henrietta is not a shrinking violet - beautiful, accomplished and nasty - she would like Alissa out of the way since her plans involve capturing a handsome nobleman for herself! Elizabeth, the youngest, is sweet and adds a dimension of youth and innocence to the storyline.

This starts out so well. I loved that Alissa was different - raised falcons but suffered from severe shyness. But this didn't seem to last and although shy at first, once Lord Ives has finagled his way into the family situation, she has no problem talking to him. Lord Ives was different and attempts to help Alissa with her various ailments. (She suffers a fall in the beginning of the book and has trouble walking for a while). I just felt he was so intrusive! Did he fall in love with her at sight? Again the book indicates it is Alissa that falls in love immediately but the storyline does not portray that.

"Duffy," Lord Ives friend who becomes the love interest of Elizabeth is rather unique. He spouts proverbs constantly - actually I began to wonder about his sanity since most didn't seem to match what the discussion was about. Other secondary characters are bizarre to say the least. Baron ffolkes only talks of dogs and sheep. Baroness ffolkes strides around like a man and interested only in flowers. Neither seems interested in their children - except perhaps "daddy's girl" Henrietta.

I had to skim through the end of this book since I could not stand to read it closely anymore. I have read several Hendrickson books and I have not found them to be keepers - yet I have a couple more on the shelf that I will have to wade through and see if my mind is changed. This book may be enjoyed by others but I found it very tedious.

Backflap:

The oldest daughter of the Baron Ffolkes, Alissa had far more than her odd last name to contend with. For she lived in the shadow of her sister Henrietta's dazzling beauty and her sister Elizabeth's glowing charm, and had lost all hope of outshining them in the sphere of society or the eyes of any man.

Thus when Alissa lost her heart at first sight to the splendid Earl of ives, she tried to hide her feelings even from herself. The handsomest lord in London would never notice much less want a shrinking violet like her...unless love's magic worked a miracle to make both her beauty and boldness bloom......

This is a refreshing romance which takes place in and around Salisbury. The main character has grown up in a rather eccentric family and has become unwittingly the cinderella figure of the household, who holds it all together but gets nothing but remonstrated for her efforts. This turns Miss Alissa into a very insecure girl, at least socially.

Enter the Earl of Ives and his friend Duffy who've come down to check on the Baron's sheep.

From that moment on ensues a slowly moving romance between the two of them ( and a few other secondary characters...) that is more based on friendship and therefore wholly believable.

The household characters are also very believable and Ms. Hendrickson as always has a astute way with words in making the reader not only accept what she pens but be willing to swear it is so. I know at least two people who the characters in this book could have been based on and that always brings a book home to me.

My reasoning behind the 3 stars is solely based on the ending. I am firmly allergic to the heroine's continuing on the road of self-flagellation when it has long ceased to be relevant. Unfortunately, this is exactly what happens here in the last 50 pages and that did sour the story for me just a bit, I must admit.

Emily Hendrickson is a fantastic regency writer and if you can accept the rather long-winded ending...you'll be happy you read this book.

It was a good storyline, but too slow & many grammatical errors that it damped my reading enjoyment!! The only sense of life it seemed to come off the pages was with her vile middle sister! I'm glad she got her due, but would of love to see the unloving parents get theirs for the shoddy treatment of their eldest daughter! Glad Lord Ives was very kind & seemingly handsome! It was a good storyline with hawks & pottery in the regency era with the lovely fair description! All despite its slow monotone throughout most of the bok!
I would recommend if one likes regency, but personally would not be reading again or placing on my must keep list!
