I liked Mistress Mischief. Likeable characters, nice story. Young Frederica Barry's elderly husband died without providing for her in his will. Her middle-aged stepson threw her out of the house and she made her way to London with another destitute relation and two cast-off servants. Max Warfield is a distant cousin who steps in to help. (Four Stars)

I didn't really like The Lady Who Hated Shakespeare. I never developed any liking or tolerance for our heroine. I found her to be spoiled and incredibly immature. I can't imagine any man being interested in her.

Cordelia Renwick's father immersed himself in studying Shakespeare. Delia wanted him to pay more attention to her and hated Shakespeare for stealing her father away from her. Cousin Miles comes for a visit to study Shakespeare with her father. He finds her attractive. She fights her attraction to him because he likes Shakespeare's works. She puts bugs put in the bed to make him leave. And on it goes. At the end we have an attempted murder to spruce up the plot. All's well that ends well. (Three stars - well written, but not my favorite) ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0449223973, Mass Market Paperback)

Frederica had been left destitute by her late husband's relatives--and her own gambling. Would distant cousin Max Warfield accept her proposition to become his Mistress Mischief? And Cordelia was The Lady Who Hated Shakespeare during the long summer her father spent reading the Bard--leaving her with his insufferable and dashing cousin Miles. A Regency romance original.
