"A Creative Regency Romance"

Fresh Fiction Review

Tarnished Amongst the Ton
Louise Allen

Reviewed by Lee Erin Berryhill
Posted March 15, 2013

Romance Historical | Series

Ashe and his family have just arrived in England to claim their family estate. Needing a bride who is the perfect picture of English society is a priority for Ashe, as he is the heir to the family title. Phyllida and her secrets are not what Ashe is looking for, but he becomes intrigued by Phyllida anyways. As Ashe learns more about Phyllida, he realizes he is falling in love with her. Ashe must soon choose between love and Phyllida or duty to his family title.

Louise Allen has written a stand out regency romance. Though the regency theme is not unique, the plot of TARNISHED AMONGST THE TON is very creative, and established a unique setting for enjoyable characters. The hero of TARNISHED AMONGST THE TON, Ashe, is not the expected regency hero. He is handsome, slightly arrogant, and self - assured, but he is not a hero who has lived his life in English society, and the usual rules don't apply to him. Ashe also, has a surprising past, and unusual vulnerability. Likewise the heroine, Phyllida, has a different past. She also has a great sense of independence and a caring heart. The dialogue between characters is witty, and characters such as Gregory and Harriet made TARNISHED AMONGST THE TON even more agreeable. Readers who enjoy regency historical romances will like reading TARNISHED AMONGST THE TON.

SUMMARY

Having survived the scandal of her birth with courage and determination, the beautiful Phyllida has reached a precarious balance within the ton. And in just one moment Ashe Herriard, Viscount Clere, blows her world and her carefully made plans to pieces. Brought up in vibrant Calcutta, Ashe is disdainful of polite London society, but something about Phyllida intrigues him. There's a mystery surrounding her. A promise of secrets and a hint of scandal-more than enough to entice him!
