The Pleasure of Bedding a Baroness Review

The Pleasure of Bedding a Baroness ~
Tamara Lejeune
Publisher~ Zebra Historical Romance
Published~ 1 November 2011

My Rating~ 4 out of 5 stars

Set in Regency times, 20-year-old identical twins Patience and Prudence Waverly sail from Philadelphia to London to claim their inheritance when their last relative dies. As the elder, Patience is now a Baroness and legal guardian to her sister. A stalwart American, Patience wants nothing to do with her title. She wants to get the paperwork settled, sell the estate and head back to America. Prudence, however, has other plans.

This was an amusing story told successfully from several viewpoints as the sisters find their feet in England, so far from home, in such a very different way of life and unwittingly involved in several plots against them and a man named Purefoy, heir to the Sutherland Dukedom. Well, except for Prudence who knowingly plots selfish mayhem. Jeez, how many times did I want to smack that bratty twit? Many. However, she makes a good foil for Patience.

This is the first book I’ve read by Tamara Lejeune, but it won’t be the last!
