Books by Jane Feather

B
The Silver Rose

While forced marriage generally isn’t my thing, I do often like Jane Feather’s novels and I love that she has often chosen less commonly used settings for her tales. Her 1997 novel, The Silver Rose, takes place in England during the reign of Queen Anne. The spirit of the time, and the lingering ...

Tempt Me with Diamonds

Picture the movie The War of the Roses as a romance novel set in late Victorian England and you have – in a roundabout way - Jane Feather’s latest novel, Tempt Me with Diamonds. If you enjoy reading about characters who like to fight each other and then hate-bang each other into oblivion, then y ...

Trapped at the Altar

Set in the waning days of Charles II's reign, Trapped at the Altar could have been quite a book. Jane Feather makes great use of her setting, and some of the court intrigue and general unrest of the time had me engrossed and flipping pages. Unfortunately, this book is a romance and so we had to spen ...

Twelfth Night Secrets

Jane Feather has been writing romances for what seems like forever; I remember reading her early in my romance reading life, before AAR existed. Though I vaguely remember some of those V books being good back in the day, the two books I’ve read in the last decade have both been underwhelming. ...

All the Queen's Players

There was once a time when I could point to Jane Feather as an author who successfully and consistently married descriptive settings with intriguing characters. This is no longer true and oh how sad that makes me. Rosamund Walsingham lives a quiet country life with her brother T ...

A Husband's Wicked Ways

Whew, this one is long. And, quite honestly, I can’t see a reason in hell for it to be quite so gargantuan a task to read. I haven’t read Jane Feather in a while - just too many books to read and too little time - and right now I’m not seeing any incentive to add her back onto ...

To Wed a Wicked Prince

To Wed a Wicked Prince features an enjoyable romance marred only by a marriage under false pretenses and a too-long page count. Lady Livia Lacey enjoys the independence she finds in owning her own home in London, a home left to her by an eccentric distant relation, Sophia Lacey. S ...

A Wicked Gentleman

One thing I love about Jane Feather's books is her ability to evoke particular places and times in her work. She is one of the few authors who sets her books in a variety of times and places and in each, the reader truly feels transported. This time around, she has returned to Regency England f ...

B
Almost a Lady

Jane Feather is a longtime favorite of mine. Even when her books are not complete hits (Almost Innocent and the Duncan Sisters trilogy, there’s something about the strength of her writing that gets me every time. When she is on her game, she skillfully intertwines historical fact, intrigue, and ...

B
Almost a Bride

I've had a love/hate relationship with Jane Feather's books for years. I have not once, but twice now given up on her only to be lured back by great buzz about one of her books. The last time this happened was with The Widow's Kiss, which I loved, but then she lost me again two books later with the ...
