    When her beloved sister becomes engaged to the man of her dreams, the heroine is beyond happy for her But never did she expect that with planning a wedding will also come with a dark family curse and a haunted house to boot The heroine never took any stock in silly things like ghosts, that is, until she stepped foot in the manor That first night she is visited by the family s ancestor who was wronged on the day of his wedding by his fianc and murdered Now, it s his responsibility to appear at every wedding day of his family line to proclaim whether the match is approved or not The heroine may not be beautiful or overly social but she bright and she is hell and determined to prevent anything from ruining her sisters happiness and the talk of ghosts is very unsetting to her sister So the heroine decides to put an end to it by discovering the mystery behind the ghosts death and allowing him to find peace therefore ending the curse She didn t count on the fianc s surly and antisocial brother being added to the mix and suddenly thanks to this interfering and silly ghost she finds herself caught in a compromising position with the hero and is forced to accept the idea of marriage She knows she will never go through with it but the heros painful past of his own betrayal is upsetting to the family and so she must play along There follows a story of betrayal, trust and mystery The hero and heroine, once enemies, soon become something but if they are not able to trust one another than the curse will really and truly win in the end.This book is very much a discounted harquin novel Meaning it is short, very uncomplicated and not exactly true to it s portrayed era The language of the time faded in and out as the author lost focus of the time period and repeatedly referenced modern phrasing and mannerisms The vast majority of the scenarios were typical historical but a lot of the time I found myself rolling my eyes at the lack of true character reactions Never would an unmarried female have any freedom of choice in marriage after she was caught in a mans bedchamber Never would she decide to ride along with a man without a chaperone These things threw me off and paired with the rushed tone of the book and sever lack of chemistry between the characters made this book rate low for me I felt no love between the characters and indeed most of the 250 page book was spent with them at odds with one another and having little to no private interactions I wasn t a fan but then again, I should not have expected a whole lot out of it.

    Once Upon a Time Little Lexie Reader fell into he Zebra Signet Regency Romance boom of the late 90 s early 00 s I fell on these like a ravenous wolf on a freshly dead deer I read A LOT of these Like so many I can t remember them all I d get them for cheap at the local used bookstore, ask for them for holidays, save my pennies to get the new onesit was a madcap adventure.That said a lot of these are just not great So I m doing a Regency Read project to weed out the ones I won t re read because guys, I have so many banker boxes of theseTHE WEDDING GHOST, which I haven t re read in at least 8 years, is one I have fond memories of because our hero, Roark, likes towell ROAR Salome, a maid at the castle, constantly interrupts his cuddly but mostly chaste sexy times with the heroine, Anna and it makes him frustrated It doesn t help Salome, who is in the family way but not married, though this book is fascinatingly forward in how the characters treat her , CHANTS AT A BANSHEE WAIL every prayer she can think of As one character remarks, its not like she s innocent so why is she freaked out by two consenting adults who are fully dressed cuddling on the bed under a blanket Yes I read this book so many times as a teenager that I remember whole swaths of it without needing a refresher Guys the banter between Roark and Anna is hilarious, the ghost Charles is hilarious and Anna loves to rib Roark about how everyone in his family thinks he s this miserly recluse that stares at the sky all day when he s practically a frakking rake who just happens to be mostly anti social with his family.So I went into this book with high hopes it would maintain its appeal to me And it did While I m mostly not convinced of the romance that had little impact on the overall enjoyment I had This is just a FUN book with some sexy times that were mostly chaste, but still surprisingly passionate A keeper

    I was so tempted to give up several times while I was reading it But I don t like to rate review a book that I did not finish And I wanted to review it Besides, I own a paper book, which is what frustrates me the most If it was an e book, fine, I could have deleted removed it But there are no Cindy Holbrook e books yet, and I honestly don t have spaces left in my shelf for paper books ha, as if I could stop buying I think I am going to leave this book in an empty seat of the bus or something.Where to start alright, the main points points I remember so far, but that may increase within the week 1 The love story B O R I N G It was already a bad sign when I decided to leave the book for a moment to go and eat something while Anna and Roark kissed for the first time The first kiss should be like, the climax of a Regency romance First epic fail.2 This is Regency, for God s sake But everyone was calling everybody by their first name No formality here This is Anna, this is Roark, this is Aunt Deirdre, this is Julian what were their last names Right, Julian was the charming villain , but even villains address the ladies by their last name Why, the first time they meet, Julian calls Anna Anna And she, Julian 3 There is a pregnant girl out of wedlock And it is like, the most common thing for all these characters Wrong In Regency era, just saying the word pregnant made the girls blush Imagine a girl pregnant AND single and the father gone nonetheless Anna and her sister Beth who was the epitome of everything good, nice, etc were not even shocked about this fact And Aunt Deirdre even joked about it Joked 4 Anna and Roark were caught in bed together of course, this is a clean romance, so nothing happened and no one is shocked Not even Virginal Beth I even asked myself if I was reading a regency or a contemporary love story 5 The story is so predictable is painful We have our MC, a plain Jane, who not only is beyond perfect for our hero, but she gets a suitor for the first time in her life, causing of course jealousy in our tormented hero Roark The suitor is, of course , charming, handsome, blah, blah So why does this charming young man, who can have anyone, fall for our heroine When no one in her twenty something has ever paid her attention Oh no, it is not because she is suddenly pretty, blah, blah, but because he has second intentions Predictable Of course our heroine cannot have another suitor without mean intentions involved.6 The story is as corny as hell Everyone has his her love, and everyone is sooo much in love Like, I cannot live without you in love For about 30% of the book, the only character I liked was the ghost Until he decides to become match maker along with everybody , because, of course, everybody but Anna and Roark, knew they were meant for each other yawn This is a clean romance, but it is very heated up and lusty I wouldn t have been so angry with this book if a I haven t the paper book and b I haven t read other books by this author I have to give up with Cindy Holbrook, which is really bad cause I thought I found another favorite regency author But 2 MEH books out of 3 its a sign.

    I thought this was a charming little ghost story I don t normally like ghost stories all that much, but the ghost in this, Charles, was fun He is a little busy body and decides he wants to play cupid with Anna and Roark, with some fun results I liked Anna and she knows how to speak her mind While I liked Roark, he was a bit on the worldly side for me It seems like a lot of these old school regency authors were requried to make their heros all rakes Roark isn t too bad though and he does respect Anna, and even wins me over along the way I was a little nervous at first, but this ended up being pretty clean just a few kisses The story was well written and there is even a mystery of what really happened with Charles and why he hasn t been able to move on Anna and Roark had a good relationship, despite Roark s inability to trust women, which almost causes him to miss his chance with Anna I don t know why I enjoyed this one so much, but I did It was lighthearted fun Content A couple swearwords and some passionate kissing.

    This was a very enjoyable book The ghost story works beautifully as he is one of the secondary characters rather than a distant device Each portion of the story served to parallel another story whether it was Charles story, Roark s story, Aunt Deidre or Anna s Everyone had intertwined stories The tone is very light but the intrigue was engrossing and helped drive the novel at parts where the character or relationship development seemed to falter I really enjoyed this novel and is by far my favorite one by Holbrook though Lady Megan s Masquerade comes a close second even if its for sentimental reasons.

    Nothing too serious, it s what I like to call brain candy This is a light hearted romp through a haunted castle with a typical tall, dark, and sullen and handsome male lead, countered by an intrepid and determined heroine The supporting characters add charm as well as laughter, and the situations the characters find themselves in can be quite humorous You don t feel the characters will jump off the page into real life, but they re fun to read about.

    While this is a truckload of tired romance plotlines, I did like the funky ghost You don t see a lot of ghosts as likable secondary characters in romances, and while Charles was quite the gentleman throughout, it did give me some inappropriate ideas about other things handsome ghosts might do in romances

    My mom mailed it to me in a package with a bunch of other books genealogy, mostly Easy read Pretty predictable Solid conclusion sometimes writers leave you to guess or assume at an ending after a reconciliation but this was a full conclusion.
