Overview

Customers who enjoy the traditional Regency Romances of Georgette Heyer, Barbara Metzger, and Carla Kelly will enjoy this witty, award-winning Regency romp by New York Times bestselling author Candice Hern. Miss Rosalind Lacey has spent all her 26 years in the country, quietly managing the lives of her widowed father and five younger siblings. When she learns she has contracted the illness that killed her mother, she decides to spend her last few months doing all the things she's never had the time or opportunity to experience. With the help of her worldly and notorious aunt, the simple country miss is transformed into a dashing Town sophisticate who cuts a wide and wild swath through London Society. Since she won't be around to face the consequences of her behavior, Miss Lacey does and says exactly what she pleases, even becoming involved with the infamous rake, Max Davenant. It is an exciting and heady time for the one-time country mouse, until she receives a fateful letter bearing news that turns her glittering new world upside down. The ballrooms and gaiety of the London Season form a backdrop for this sparkling tale of a young woman who hasn't lived enough, and a man who's lived too much.

I really enjoyed this romance. Rosie was such a joy, and a great reminder to live as if you're dying! I cant wait to read another from this author.

Always gravitated to this era even though it had the Pride and Prejudice sensibilities connnected to it. Candice took those sensibilites but subtly added a "little" spice to attract the modern womens sensibilities. She struck gold with me! I had both in this book and I can hardly wait to read the others!

I quite enjoyed "Miss Lacey's Last Fling", one of Candice Hern's older regencies. It was a quick read with interesting characters and just the right amount of humor for the plot.Rosie is dying. She figures she's got about six months before the same disease that killed her mother takes her too. Since she put off her time in London and a season to take care of all her siblings, she decides to go out with a bang (pun thoroughly intended). So she sets off for London and a visit with her scandalous Aunt Lucy. There she becomes Rosalind, a vivacious and flirtatious woman who wants to experience all the joys and excitement London has to offer; she even has a list!Max is a jaded rake. His best friend committed suicide at the end of the last season and said in his note to Max, "Life is a bore." Max finds himself feeling the same way until his friend Lucy's niece comes to town. Arriving looking like a dowd, Max doesn't recognize the new Rosalind when he next sees her. Spending time with her and her lust for life energizes and entertains Max and before long he's falling under her spell.Yes, the plot is familiar. But Hern gives it her own special spin and I kept reading for the fun. After all, like Rosalind, getting there is just as rewarding as the destination, right?

I enjoyed this. It got rather trite at the end. But the storyline was rather good and at least different from boy meet girl. I'm getting rather tired of stupid people, though. I guess if the characters weren't stupid there wouldn't be a story, would there?
