It is hard to consider seriously an author who names her aristocratic Regency hero Tanner Blake. Tanner? A tanner being probably the second ot thirg most smelly occupation in Regency times. Is it at all likely that a Duke would be called Tanner. To modern eyes that is likley as beliving in a hero called Waste Operative.

A shame as otherwise the novel was adequate. ( )

HOW TO BEGUILE A BEAUTY by Kasey Michaels is a delightful Regency historical romance/mystery set in 1816 England.It is well written with details and depth. It has mystery, wit, betrayal, romance, sensuality, murder and forgiveness. The heroine is devastated when her fiance dies in the war, she is quiet, reserved, well mattered, the she realizes there is more to life and learns to enjoy life and falls in love again. She is strong,determined and charming. The hero is handsome, strong, just as determined as the heroine, he is after all the one who brings our heroine the bad news of her fiance's demise. Her fiance is his friend and is asked to take care of her on his friend's death bed, and as things progress he falls in love with her and the adventure begins. Everyone it seems know they are in love except for them of course. They can/t seem to believe this could for true, for our heroine also believes herself to be sly and undesirable. Our hero believes his dead friend will always be between them. This is an exciting, fast paced, page turning story. I would recommend this book. This book was received for review from Net Gallery and details can be found at My Book Addiction and More and HQN. ( )

Book description
When her beloved dies in battle, Lady Lydia Daughtry assumes she'll never love again. Until a deliciously handsome duke awakens a part of her she never knew existed. But how can she have such feelings for Tanner Blake, who is a constant reminder of all she has lost?

Tanner Blake, duke of Malvern, promised his dying friend he'd take care of his "dearest Lyddie." So how dare he covet the lush, lovely young woman for himself—especially since he is all but betrothed to another? His solution: find Lydia a suitable husband immediately. But when both their lives become fraught with mystery and danger, Tanner's vow becomes intensely personal…renewing his desire to keep Lydia by his side forever.
