    One thought on “Taming Lord Renwick”

    1. Although not my style of romance novel, this was well written. I’m not a big fan of soft looks and accidental touches leading to a sweet kiss on the last page, but the book has a number of good points.The main male character, Lord Jason Renwick, was blinded in India saving a young prince. The author doesn’t take the easy way out and have him recover his sight or grow new eyes by the end of the book. True, with the encouragement of Eustacia (female lead) and the power of love, he is a happier [...]

    2. Taming Lord Renwick by Jeanne Savery was a recent reread for me. It is a Regency Period Romance novel published under the Zebra Regency label. Eustacia is the daughter of a Vicar who as passed away, leaving her in a precarious financial situation and in the care of her stepmother. Her stepmother, liking the finer things in life, has found the perfect husband for Eustacia, Mr. Weaver, a fat, elderly, smelly man. As Eustacia and her step-mother are discussing (okay, the step-mother is telling Eust [...]

    3. This is a traditional Regency with a not-very-villainous villain, poor heroine, blind hero and, of course, the tiger.

    4. One of my first (and favorite) Regency romance novels. I will admit that it is not one of the best out there, but what it does do, it does well. For starters, its very well written and Savery does a fantastic job fleshing out all of the characters. Every character was unique enough that it didn't really matter that there is not a huge cast. In many books, there is a large supporting cast (parents, siblings, servants, friends, etc.) who all have to get screen time. This book cuts all of that out [...]
