    One thought on “Miss Lacey's Last Fling ”

    1. I first read Candice Hern s Desperate Measures It was being offered free on Kindle and I wanted to try this author before reading her other books I was pleasantly surprised with this short story MISS LACEY S LAST FLING concerned a young woman who thought she was dying Both the oldest sister and a surrogate mother, Rosalind Rosie Lacey took care of her father s household and siblings after her mother passed away years ago Now, at 26 years of age, she looked and acted like a country mouse Believin [...]

    2. To be considered over the hill at age twenty six seems outrageous today, but in Regency times, young ladies married in their mid teens or became spinsters who cared for their parents and siblings children Tragically our heroine Rosie, eldest daughter of Sir Edmund Lacey of Wycombe Hall, Devonshire, did not have a choice to marry young and now resides on the shelf where Society places ladies who are not deemed marriageable.Since her mother s early demise ten years ago, she has quietly raised her [...]

    3. Miss Rosalind Lacey is dying, thank you very much So when she arrives in London at the ripe old age of 26, she s looking to have some fun Fun includes curricle racing, getting her drink on, and macking on cute boys, including the scrumptious rake Max Devanant Max, meanwhile, is, like, really bored With life Until Rosie shows up and turns his life upside downwith FEELINGS DUN DUN DUN 1 THIS WAS DELIGHTFUL.UNTIL IT WASN T 2 DELIGHTFUL because Rosie comes to town and has herself a grand old time He [...]

    4. 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 Luc [...]

    5. Candice Hern s Miss Lacey s Last Fling Nice Traditional Regency story about a woman who thinks she s doomed to die in about 6 months and decides to do all the fun things that have been denied to her in her role as her family s main caregiver, before she succumbs to her illness I didn t really get pulled into the story until the very end, though too many stock Regency characters and situations The heroine s instant transformation from country mouse into the belle of all the London balls she atten [...]

    6. Rosie goes to London to visit her scandalous Aunt Fanny and does all the things I d like to do if only time travel were real First she gets a makeover Then a whole new wardrobe She meets and flirts with London s number one rake, Max Davenant She goes to balls, drives a curricle, visits all the attractions, gets thrown out of Almack s for dancing the waltz without permission, and attends a masque dressed as a page boy She shocks all the proper little misses and their mamas and becomes the toast o [...]

    7. Candice Hern is quietly becoming my favorite historical romance author Uh, check that Still in second place behind Lauren Willig.Having read just about all of Ms Hern s period romances, this one is the best yet for me.Most admirable and deserving heroine Rosie Lacey has been busily and faithfully tending to her father and siblings on their country estate since the untimely death of her mother to a mysterious malady.At six and twenty, she is heading towards inevitable spinsterhood Not feeling qui [...]

    8. For some reason, I d remembered not liking Candice Hern As so often happens, it turns out my sieve like memory was way off base This was an utterly charming delight sweet yet not saccharine, funny yet not irritatingly silly, lighthearted yet not wholly devoid of substance Lately I find myself moving further and further away from self serious, angst drenched grimness and gravitating and towards frothy yet high quality fluff I had a terrific chat with someone here about how quality fluff is not [...]

    9. I enjoyed this premise If you lived in a different time what would be on your bucket list Poor Rosalind feels she has such a short time left to live and really turns London on its ear She attracts the biggest rake of em all No one wants a commitment or does that change That aunt fanny is quite a character As they say she might be old but not dead yet There is an intimate evening described.t in detail but it s there.

    10. Naturally, if you are a spinster during the Regency period which, through knowledge garnered by extensive reading of such things, seems to apply to any and all unmarried females over the age of 12, give or take ten years depending on your face and figure okay, to be fair, the heroine is well into her twenties oh, the horror , and you suddenly find out you have only a short time to live, you are going to shed your prim and proper attire and go live it up in London, with the assistance of your unc [...]

    11. She thinks she s going to die and he doesn t want to live any the beginning was promising g I never read or watched Love Story or Walk to Remember but appreciated the heroine s reason for behaving loosely very much in the outset Her constant wheeee ness and him calling her minx five times on each page grated quickly, and it became the usual boring Hern andmanyothers story with no actual development but endless repetitions of how they didn t suit but fancied each other There is actual premarital [...]

    12. This book was not for me I made it halfway before deciding that it wasn t worth it for me to continue I thought that pet names were distractingly overused minx and my dear seemed to appear in every paragraph I found the characters completely flat in large part because the writing was so stilted I enjoy a reformed rake story, but good lord had Max slept with every woman in London I found him smarmy and sleazy and not at all interesting Rosalind also did nothing for me and, strangely, I found the [...]

    13. This is the only book that made me laugh out loud and smile so hard Ever The plot was awesome and the dialogues were funny and interesting It did not bore me once Plus, it kept me on the edge of my seat Max Davenant, the lead male in the story, would be a new fictional character to me I would recommend anyone with this book I was disappointed when I finished the book I wanted their story to continue.

    14. This was delightful It was basically The Blue Castle which is terrific but the regency setting was fun It was a bit predictable of course but Rosalind was such a fun character that I didn t mind.

    15. Pretty well written overall, and a good plot concept A lot of telling, though If you like that style, I d give it a 4.

    16. This is essentially YOLO, the Regency novel Rosalind Lacey is convinced she s dying of the illness that killed her mother, and so decides to throw caution to the winds and to live, live, live To quote Auntie Mame I rewatched the film last night and I found it fitting to compare it to this little novel She goes to her infamous Aunt Fanny, who destroyed her reputation multiple times in her own youth, who transforms her mouse of a niece into a flirt that would nearly put Scarlet O Hara to shame Wha [...]

    17. DNF halfway in I wanted to like this than I was able to like it, and I liked the beginning than I liked the rest Heroine is a downtrodden spinster stuck raising her siblings and running the household after her mother s early death When she herself seems to be developing the same mystery illness that took her mother, she decides to have a last fling in London to fulfill all of her bucket list desires Hero is some guy I have already forgotten Wait, it s coming back to me He s bored and vaguely d [...]

    18. The writing style was excellent Anyone that enjoys period dramas will enjoy this book I wasn t expecting to enjoy this book as much as I did because the main character s motivation of live like their s no tomorrow is one I personally don t like But the author made such a motivation very believable without making the main character seem shallow If I had to change one thing it d be the final resolution It was a bit fast and required the main character to throw out certain beliefs she d been holdin [...]

    19. Truly a wonderful story I loved it Candice Hern is a gifted story teller This book was funny, and the character were oh so likable Rosalind was a fun loving, and fun heroine and the hero, though a rake, was a charming, caring man It was a refreshing change to have the heroine flaunt the propriety of the day and enjoy life, guilt free Very well written I m sad it had to end.

    20. I love these books for a quick escape from reading professional development or books with my students in mind I can read them in just a few hours So don t judge they are very sweet if you like Jane Austen and regency books with out having to read Rake and The Harlot.

    22. A wonderful read, which starts with a most unusual premise a girl who has been the downtrodden and unregarded homebody running her widowed father s country house discovers that she has inherited her mother s fatal illness and only has months to live Determined to experience everything she can before she dies, she takes herself to London to stay with her disreputable aunt, where she conducts herself outrageously and becomes notorious.Given this premise, the remaining twists of the plot are so bli [...]

    24. After a few twists and turns this month I managed to read the book for the Regency Romance Challenge The first book I read for this challenge wasn t exactly a success but this one was a delightful short story that I loved to read.The blurb says it all Miss Rosalind Lacey finds out that she is dying and is determined to do all those things she never had time and or inclination to do before Since she won t have a future she wants to try every exciting thing, every new experience She wants to dance [...]

    25. This book was absolutely delightful.I discovered this author and this title in particular due to SBTB advising of it being on sale 99c and thought why not I started reading and then lost a great deal of my day as I was hooked.The story of Miss Rosalind Lacey throwing all caution to the wind and living every day as it were her last or soon to be was fun Miss Lacey decides on this course of action because she truly believes the end it nigh Aiding her in her zest for life is her Aunt Fanny who cut [...]

    26. Just enough wow factor to keep the laughs coming Rosie is the house drudge who sacrificed all to ensure her younger siblings gained a proper foothold in their schooling or with their social entree She is the cornerstone over which the household operates until.Nobody can refuse she has a right to a season in London and although perplexed by her intention she packs herself off to stay with one of her most wayward and perhaps disreputable Aunts where her ugly duckling looks become of the swan.She [...]

    28. Anyone who likes Georgette Heyer s work will like Candace Hern One of my biggest gripes about recent Regency wannabe s is that that they make their characters say and do things that reek of this century and not the regency era This particular story does that a little Miss Lacey does something no well bred, self respecting young lady of the time would have considered But in general, Candice Hern manages to make her books deliciously like Georgette Heyer s Not quite as funny maybe, but still good [...]

    29. This book is very much light without being frothy, and fun without being silly it s also a sweet romance, so don t expect any heat here.This is first and foremost the story of a young woman who, in a very restrictive time, decided to take the reins on her life and get the most out of every day, as she believes that each may be her last Her behaviour might have been considered scandalous at the time it really wouldn t be now but there is so much life and enjoyment in this book that it never cross [...]

    30. This is my favorite of CH s Regencies on kindle but all share the same sprightly spirit and deft storytelling There s just something that sparkles in this story.Why I loved it I found myself rooting for Miss Lacey and enjoying her bold choices Don t we all have those take this ____ and shove it, I m doing what I want moments in life Well, having a Season, no holds barred, was at the top of Miss Lacey s bucket list She wanted to wear a daring gown, dance, say and do as she wanted, because she bel [...]
