Indiscretion by Jude Morgan

A perfectly delightful regency romp in the styles of Austen and Heyer. With characters that jumped right off the page and some of the wittiness dialogue I've read in a long time.

I was very surprised to find out this was written by a man, but that was soon forgotten because you'd never be able to tell as soon as you got into the story that this wasn't written by a woman.

The characters were completely three dimensional. You can make out even the smallest of characters. The character of Stephen Milner has probably become one of my favorite characters in historical fiction. He was a bit eccentric and very droll and completely hilarious. Our heroine, Miss Fortune (that's right, you read that correctly) was a perfectly splendid character with a bit of the devil in her, but with also touches of affection and quick wit.

Fans of regency romances will be sure to love Indiscretion.

Hmmm Jude Morgan is a man. With that name seems like it could be either. Now I have that song going through my head...Hey Jude....! Hope you're having a great week and thanks for sharing the review!
