Lord Richard's Daughter

Lord Richard's Daughter - Joan Wolf

Lightning Review:

 

  • Typical Joan Wolf Trad Regency = well written, real history included, smart romance
  •  Heroine dragged to Africa as a missionary by her zealot father, rescued by Hero from being sold into a Harem
  • Back in England just wants to settle to a Normal Life
  • Yeah, Right
  • Felt kinda bad for the sacrificial fiance
  • But connection b/t H/H too well established & palpable
  • Couldn't stop giggling every time they referred to Muhammad Ali -- yeah I know, but still kept mentally picturing Cassius Clay
