    One thought on “Unlacing Lady Thea”

    1. You think I am a trifle old for the grand tour I disagree At twenty eight I will appreciate things The cat sneered, lifted one hind leg and began to groom itself intimately Stop that A gentleman does not wash his balls in the study Louise Allen quickly throws the reader into the heart of the action and humor with our hero Rhys, Lord Denham, drunk, and planning and talking to the kitchen cat about his Grand Tour while Napoleon is on Elba.Then a sudden visitor knocks his plans some what astray.La [...]

    2. Unlacing Lady Thea is a truly charming road trip story featuring two well drawn and engaging protagonists who had known each other as children, but drifted apart following the hero s aborted wedding Long standing friends who fall for each other is a trope I particularly enjoy, which obviously predisposed me in the book s favour but when, in the opening pages, the drunken hero strikes up a conversation with the kitchen cat and utters the immortal line A gentleman does not wash his balls in the st [...]

    3. This was a charming romance set in France and Italy, with a strong heroine and some wonderful dialogue, provided by the publisher through netgalley.So what did I like The heroine is spunky, determined, curious, rather on the plain side and believably vulnerable She s not an idiot, she understands what she s getting herself into, and still takes the plunge Her joie de vivre is a blast of fresh air for everyone around her The setting, in a kind of early 1800s road trip way, really brings the story [...]

    4. A sweet and lovely romance, Unlacing Lady Thea was a fantastic historical romance read I really enjoyed this book, from beginning to end It was just wonderful and I absolutely loved it Thea was a lovely heroine After years of being quiet and meek, a forced betrothal was the last straw and she decided to take her life into her own hands She was the kind of heroine that was strong in a quiet way Not through obvious defiance and sass, but with her resilience through any situation she was put in I r [...]

    5. Originally posted HERE.I love Louise Allen s writing I love that her characters are both fun and also feel truly British I love pretty much everything about how she constructs her stories.Which is why I picked up a review copy of this one even though I tend to despise the set up mentioned in the blurb the heroine who sneaks away in men s clothing.Firstly, that particular piece of storyline is dispensed with very fast Secondly, the way it was written in Unlacing Lady Thea was just fine.Friends to [...]

    6. Sparklingly wit So I was ready to give Lady Thea 5 stars before I d even finished the first chapter The rest of the novel did not disappoint I am captivated by Allen s dialogue Her dry humour leavens the story Smart and amusing lines such as when Rhys, in his cups, scolds the ginger tomcat for ungentlemanly behaviour is just one example Rhys Denham, the third Earl of Palgrave is a rake, though capable of redemption He has decided that it s time to do his duty and marry, but first he will do the [...]

    9. What a fun romance I always love it when the female character maintains her strength throughout the romance novel, and doesn t suddenly crumble under the emotions she feels about the man imagine that, a woman is able to be strong AND have a relationship with a strong man This was a cute story, with witty conversations between Rhys and Thea, and I was pleasantly surprised at Rhys taking Thea s beliefs and discussions seriously rather than finding her fluffy and amusing I would definitely recommen [...]

    10. Actual rating 3.5 stars.Out of all the Louise Allen books I ve read, I liked this one the best Sure, it has its moments where I would have wanted to bang my head against the wall since the characters were kind of unbelievable, but at the same time I found myself really liking this novel It had its funny moments and a bit serious moments and by the end I reached the conclusion that Allen s writing keeps improving with time.More of my thoughts can be found HERE

    11. The H h take a lovely trip through the south of France and along the coast of Italy Would it ever have happened Well, maybe not, but I sure would like to have done it myself This story reads like a novella I don t think that s a criticism It is a charming light read.

    12. Definitely a good read Thea and Rhys have a fun courtship, found on their friendship, and their adventures are great Definitely recommended

    13. Road Trip Road Trip I m doing another project I love starting projects don t usually finish them It seems lately that I m been underwhelmed by some of my auto buy authors It takes me a long time before I stop buying my old stand byes, but it has happened So, what s a person to do when their list of favorite authors start to shrink Why, they start looking for new ones In this case I m not talking about debut authors, although I do keep an eye out for new and exciting authors No, what I ve decided [...]

    16. My first M B, and not my last No doubt this could become a guilty pleasure Allen provides a narrative possessing a fun fast pace She manages to hold the readers attention providing entertaining characters struggling with just enough sexual tension leaving a soft sensuality lingering as you turn pages.Rhys and Thea with their quips, failings and strengths capture your attention as you hope their attraction materializes as the build up increases.Rhys was appealing, at times repulsive He took notic [...]

    18. DESAF O HIST RICO L de Los desvelos del amor 6 6 Termin el reto En general, se lee pero no atrae en ning n sentido Si no lo dej es porque no ten a tiempo para otra cosa El romance es lo soso que me ha tocado leer No es malo, es plano Rhys, un prota para nada atrayente, se pasa toda la historia record ndonos que Thea era su amiga sin curvas, m s chico que chica y cuando justo la toca y encuentra carne se pone de los pelos cual perro en celo No funciona as.Thea no cae mal, pero siento que al lado [...]

    19. Perhaps I didn t need a cappuccino and a chocolate croissant this morning, but I wanted them, the same way that last night I didn t need to read about heaving bosoms and hardened groins, but I wanted to, and thoroughly enjoyed both last night and this morning.The oft told tale of the lady and the lord, perfect for each other but taking a long time to figure that out, was a delightful treat here, both in the characters, the setting, and some good old fashioned escapism.

    20. Another good un from the pen of Louise Allen As the title suggests, it s a racy Regency novel Lady Althea runs away from an arranged marriage and begs long time friend, Rhys Denham, to take her with him on the first stage of his Grand Tour In a drunken moment, he agrees to take her to her godmother in Venice but when Thea s independent spirit causes friction between them, he regrets doing so His doubts increase when, to his surprise, he begins to desire her At the risk of spoilers, I won t say [...]

    21. Besides for the fact that I would have liked to read of Rhys thoughts, I really liked this novel A great travel story, with wonderful characters I especially liked the scene where the two of them went to the fair, as this is the first real bit of jealousy we see.I can t wait to read by this author.

    22. Allen s plot reminded me of the classic Clark Gable movie It Happened One Night The action takes place while on a journey to Venice and Allen maintains focus on her two lovers, which is a very nice change of pace.

    23. A friends to lovers story mash up with a road trip story, plus the oblivious guy who couldn t recognize a tender emotion if it bashed him in the head A lovely story that wasn t too much of a travelog, but still made me want to visit Ravenna.

    24. I loved this book.It was so brilliantly written and I actually loved all the characters I couldn t stop reading it to find out what would happen next between those two friends It was a very enchanting love story.
