    Also posted HERE.This is fairly good Regency romance fare, and I m sure many fans of the subgenre will really enjoy it It has likeable characters though the mean beautiful sister has been DONE TO DEATH but at least she wasn t blonde , a nice feel, and all the things a person goes to the Regency romance subgenre for.I did have a problem with the style though, and that s because while the author clearly has an image of each scene in her mind, it doesn t always translate well to the page.A Also posted HERE.This is fairly good Regency romance fare, and I m sure many fans of the subgenre will really enjoy it It has likeable characters though the mean beautiful sister has been DONE TO DEATH but at least she wasn t blonde , a nice feel, and all the things a person goes to the Regency romance subgenre for.I did have a problem with the style though, and that s because while the author clearly has an image of each scene in her mind, it doesn t always translate well to the page.An example at the beginning, hero and heroine meet and exchange a few words The whole thing is only a minute or so with them together Then we jump to the next chapter, and we re hearing about how much the hero likes her, and how people are imagining them as a couple, and we re told how well he understands her personality.When did this happen Did we skip a few scenes and catch up with them later I think the author knew what she wanted to convey, but I m not sure it worked for me.Another example there are scenes where the heroine is in the room one moment, and then the next moment the men are talking about her Here I am, wondering how they could be that rude, but it turns out she d actually left the room and even though the author knew it, she forgot to tell us.The men exchange a couple of sentences of conversation, and then the heroine suddenly reappears, carrying a tray of tea and cakes WHEN did she have time to prepare that Time is an odd thing in this book.I have no particular objections to plot or characterisation I think this book slots nicely into a very popular genre, and that the author has promise, even if it isn t quite realised yet.I also feel the need to warn people that this is historical romance, not a fairy tale Some readers seemed to be confused by the title, the blurb, and the opening scene, and expected a fantasy romance.Nothing really objectionable here Review copy provided by NetGalley.

    An Unexpected Wish by Eileen Richards is the first book in The Lady s Wish series.Anne Townsend and her sisters live quietly in a small cottage, just making ends meet 5 Years previously their brother kicked them all out of the family home he inherited and didn t give them another thought He gambled away all the family money, and the only reason he kept the house is because it s entailed.With Anne s help they are just able to have food on the table and the occasional new dress for one of the si An Unexpected Wish by Eileen Richards is the first book in The Lady s Wish series.Anne Townsend and her sisters live quietly in a small cottage, just making ends meet 5 Years previously their brother kicked them all out of the family home he inherited and didn t give them another thought He gambled away all the family money, and the only reason he kept the house is because it s entailed.With Anne s help they are just able to have food on the table and the occasional new dress for one of the sisters rather than all 3 Anne wants to give her two sisters a season in London but there is no way she can afford it Her daily constitutional walk takes her to the Fairy Steps A steep set of rocky steps that lead up to a spectacular view of the countryside Myth has it that if you can make it to the top of the stairs without touching the walls you will earn one wish granted On one such constitutional walk Anne without even realising it makes it up the steps without touching the sides When she reaches the top she swears she hears a voice telling her to make her wish She wants to think about her problems, but the persistent voice makes her make a wish in haste just to shut it up She wishes for a very rich handsome husband who will be able to afford to give her sisters their Season in London.Nathaniel Matthews isn t worried about finding love himself, in fact he is visiting with his God Mother in order to find outabout a woman his brother thinks himself in love with and wants to marry That woman is one of Anne s sisters On his way to getting to the house, Nathaniel loses direction and he is the first man that Anne sees as she is coming down the Fairy Steps Immediately he feels a pull towards Anne that he didn t expect could happen especially as he was actually visiting to stop his brother marrying.From there the story goes on to tell about men who previously had no time of day for Anne now fawn all over her She is only interested in one of them, Nathaniel, but refuses to give in to that attraction because she now believes her wish has come true, but that when it wears off Nathaniel will wonder what on earth he is doing stuck with such a poor plain Jane as her.What is so great about this story is that it not only has light hearted moments, and the perfect amount of romance, there are devilish deeds going on in the background that we don t even realise until the very end It gives a good twist which makes for a very enjoyable read which I definitely recommend.I was given a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review

    No s muy bien por d nde empezar Le he encontrado muchas inconsistencias como para disfrutar de la historia.No tiene apenas precisi n hist rica El comportamiento de los protagonistas es imposible para la poca, hubiesen sido escandalosos tan s lo los paseos, de lo dem s ni hablo cada vez que tienen un momento ntimo los pilla alguien, pero la protagonista piensa que a n no est arruinada no creo que eso funcionase de esa manera.Otro problema que he tenido es la transformaci n que los secun No s muy bien por d nde empezar Le he encontrado muchas inconsistencias como para disfrutar de la historia.No tiene apenas precisi n hist rica El comportamiento de los protagonistas es imposible para la poca, hubiesen sido escandalosos tan s lo los paseos, de lo dem s ni hablo cada vez que tienen un momento ntimo los pilla alguien, pero la protagonista piensa que a n no est arruinada no creo que eso funcionase de esa manera.Otro problema que he tenido es la transformaci n que los secundarios sufren de un cap tulo al siguiente Las hermanas de la protagonista son extremadamente opuestas La mayor es ego sta, egoc ntrica, manipuladora y realmente desagradable La peque a es dulce, madura, comprensiva y el apoyo de la protagonista pero esto no es as durante toda la historia, de repente, la hermana mala se convierte en una fuente de sabidur a y comprensi n y la peque a en una persona inmadura a la que echan de la habitaci n cuando, seg n ella, empieza lo bueno y qu decir del hermano este personaje se pasa toda la historia borracho y apostando y al final, no s ni c mo ni porqu , se redime y es el prefecto hermano mayor no me lo creo Pero lo peor ha sido lo larga que se me ha hecho El conflicto entre los protagonistas ha sido tonto y se ha alargado cansinamente en el tiempo La protagonista se mete en un mont n de problemas porque es TSTL y al final el romance pierde toda su fuerza porque ambos protagonistas est n ciegos, sordos y son cabezones y son los secundarios los que los obligan a tomar decisiones El final se me ha hecho eterno y el conflicto ha sido una tonter a No me ha gustado Y eso que empez bastante bien ARC provided by Kensington Books via Netgalley.I don t know where to start I have found many inconsistencies to enjoy the story.It does not have historical accuracy The behavior of the MC s is impossible for that time, it would have been scandalous just to walk alone, not to mention about kissing and Whenever they have an intimate moment, someone catches them, but the heroine thinks that she still is not ruined I don t think that would work that way.Another problem I ve had is the transformation that undergoes the sisters from one chapter to the next The heroine s sisters are extremely opposite The oldest is selfish, self centered, manipulative and really unpleasant The younger is sweet, mature, comprehensive and the support of the protagonist but this is not true throughout the story, suddenly, the bad sister becomes a source of wisdom and an understanding one, and the younger becomes an immature person that is kicked out of the room when, according to her, the fun begins and what can I say about the brother This character is always drunk and gambling and putting his sisters in mayor danger all along the story, I don t know how or why, at the end, he is redeemed and becomes the perfect brother I don t think soBut the worst has been that I feel the story had been longer than it needs The conflict between the MC s has been silly and tiresome and it has been dragged for a really long time Add to that a pair of TSTL moments that suffer the heroine and at the end the romance loses all its strength Both MC s are blind, deaf and stubborn and are the side characters who force them to make decisions I think the conflict between the MC s has been silly and the story has been too long.I ve not liked it

    A adorable, catching, funny, thrilling and sooo sweet novel There is just one plot choice I don t embrace here, and I would state it immediatly because this is a romance to be praised I would have reduced or simplified the antagonistic part of the story to be clear I d have cut down the traumas, it felt a bit like a loop in the end Apart from this the rest is amazing I loved the characters, all of them, they are not excessive in any way, they perfectly wear their roles, there aren t false n A adorable, catching, funny, thrilling and sooo sweet novel There is just one plot choice I don t embrace here, and I would state it immediatly because this is a romance to be praised I would have reduced or simplified the antagonistic part of the story to be clear I d have cut down the traumas, it felt a bit like a loop in the end Apart from this the rest is amazing I loved the characters, all of them, they are not excessive in any way, they perfectly wear their roles, there aren t false notes, it s easy to fall into the story and be kept there wanting to know what happens next I adored the relationship between the protagonists, the tension is skilfully built up and is not tiring at all, the author manages to satisfy the reader expectations, adopting a perfect timing for every turn and development Nathaniel, the hero, is so sweet, protective and passionate, he is thrillingly attractive but not overly dramatic or sullen The heroine, Anne, has the kind of personality I like to see in a female protagonist, strong but also insecure, very rational and practical on a general basis but with a bit of a dreamer in her as well, responsible, strongly witted and ironical A great work was made also in creating the side characters, they are as interesting and fully portrayed as the protagonists, I sympathised with pretty much all of them, I obviously can t wait for Tony and Juliet s story and hopefully for Sophie s happy ending as well, her growth is in fact very credible and promising They are all very different one to another and therefore very interesting for various reasons I ve also highly enjoyed the fairytale component, was quite the charming twist.Eileen Richards style is amazing, it s clean and measured as well as entertaining, romantically very balanced and so good for daydreaming The romance definitely doesn t seem a debut novel Can t wait for I received an Advanced Reader Copy ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
