    1. 3.5 stars Anyone who could manage impropriety beside a colicky pony is determined than I am He grinned Well put This is hardly a spot for seduction Now, why had he said that Because once he said that word, her thoughts took wing Where could one pursue a seduction, if one were perfect and unmarred and blithe Ought it to be in a bed draped with silks On the velvet squabs of a bespoke carriage Would there be perfume and rose petals Curled against Rosalind, Sheltie took another drink, then let out [...]

    2. I think Theresa Romain is starting to really find her stride She is a fresh voice in the genre with her consistent ability to create emotional romances with character who are relatable, nice, and easy to root for.I am not a huge fan of horse racing so the details in the first 30% of the book were difficult to slog through for me, but once Nathaniel and Rosalind took center stage, well, let s just say I was in heaven Therefore, one less star for the tough beginning, but 5 stars for the excellent [...]

    3. I ve given this a B at AAR, so 4.5 stars.Even though Theresa Romain is one of my favourite historical romance authors, I did raise my eyebrows when I learned that she was writing a series of books which would be based around the Sport of Kings horse racing I know nothing about it or horses and wasn t quite sure I d be interested in reading stories about horse mad people but Ms Romain has never steered me wrong yet and I trust her to tell a good story in which the characters are front and centre [...]

    4. A Gentleman s Game the first book in Theresa Romain s new Romance of the Turf series has a freshness and quirkiness in style that sets her apart from a lot of others out there at present I confess to knowing nothing whatsoever about the world of horse racing, which is the basis for the series, but even though I had to concentrate hard to get into the story, my lack of knowledge didn t actually cause me any problems while reading.The characters, however, I adored immediately Was there ever a cha [...]

    5. Buddy read with Andrea you can find her review here review showThis was a really enjoyable book after a slow start, it picked up and became interesting Although I don t know anything about horses, it didn t bother me at all and I loved the change from the usual london season in other books I liked the writing and the characters especially Nathaniel who s the sweetest man ever The thing I loved most in this book, is the developement of the relationship between the hero and heroine I loved that th [...]

    6. I pray you, do not fall in love with me, for I am falser than vows made in wine So said Rosalind in As You Like It She never expected to live out these words I m not asking anything of you, Rosalind I know better than to ask for things I cannot have Stating what I want is risk enough His arm slid over her belly, her waist, then up her ribs Just touching he liked to touch things Maybe they seemed real when he did, an anchor to the world.When his hand settled, he sighed You push back every time I [...]

    7. 3.5 stars This was a different take on the Regency romance novel in that, the characters were basically just hard working folks.I liked that both leads had flaws and how the author dealt with them I felt her characterization of them was strong and yet showed growth by the end of the book For me, the villain just didn t live up to my sense of dastardly deeds Also, when we get to that part, it feels a little rushed hence the deductions of stars.I was not aware that there was a novella prequel this [...]

    8. Despite not having read the 0,5 my mistake I really liked the world Theresa has showed us in this book Its not your typical HR, since both our hero and heroine are both working class or less I love the world of the horses and derby and just how likeable our otp was The daddy issues werehandled correctly and even if Rosalind s conflict with her Aunt wasn t as good, the book never got to be too boring Now I m curious about the other siblings and ofc I ll read Hannah s story, even if its out of or [...]

    9. Following a glorious prequel, A GENTLEMAN S GAME is the real first instalment of Theresa Romain s Romance of the Turf series, and it is every bit as brilliant as I d hoped it would be Nathaniel Chandler travels all over England to buy and sell horses it s something he s good at, and just about the only thing his curmudgeon father lets him do, but still he doesn t get any respect from his pater, the Baronet The Chandlers will enter horses in the Epsom Derby, but nearing the date of the race, some [...]

    11. I received this book for free from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.Theresa Romain is a new to me author, but one whose name isn t completely unfamiliar And although this was my first Theresa Romain historical romance, it certainly won t be my last.A Gentleman s Game was slow to start, but once it gained speed and traction, it was difficult to stop Possibly why I finished it in an afternoon I had to see the story through, figure out who was behind the mysterious illness of Nathaniel s [...]

    12. 4.5 rounded up I adored this book This Regency is set among the backdrop of horse racing In addition, neither of the two leads are titled Rosalind is the daughter of innkeepers Nathaniel is the second son of a baronet, whose father got his title somewhat recently for military service to the Crown Both of these set this apart from most of the historical romance I ve read Rosalind was burned at 13 To save her life, her parents sent her to live stay with a family friend This friend paid for her car [...]

    13. 5.5 stars out of 10 for me I really enjoyed the author s previous books To Charm and Naughty Countess and It Takes Two to Tangle If you have not read this author, I can recommend either of those two books This latest offering, though, I found to be slow and lacking in any sort of interesting tension I felt like I was watching paint dry, and the book s 340 ish pages took me 4 days to finish The heroine here is keeping secrets we vaguely know what is going on because we are told about it ad infini [...]

    15. A Gentleman s Game was quite charming, with two protagonists both with secrets, both attracted to one another, with differing stations in life forming an unusual bond that grows as the story progresses I love the way that Nathaniel and Rosalie just kind of grew into their relationship and how the secrets that they ve been keeping from other people seems to just easily spill out when they ve been in each others company and aren t held against them in anyway They felt so wonderfully ordinary in th [...]
