Tag Archives: Risky Read Along

I’m going to make an executive decision, half of the commenters suggested Edith Layton. Her name came up the first time, too, so let’s find a Layton

At least some of her books are also available for Kindle so I presume they are likely to be available in other digital formats as well.

So, what looks good? Any suggestions, favorites or what have you?

Opine in the comments.

I’m filling in for Megan today. I can’t hope to match the elan of Risky Megan, so you’ll have to man-up (or whatever)  and soldier on.

We need another Risky Read Along.

To that end, what book should we read?  I’m looking for specific authors and titles.

Hit me up in the comments for your suggestions and we’ll have a poll later in the week.


I’m sure you all recall my brilliant post from this past Wednesday in which I wrote the definitive guide to Regency cant, set down a method for desktop cold fusion (all you need is a rubberband, a paperclip, three pennies and Strontium 32), and cured the common cold.

You’re very, very welcome. It’s just something I do in my spare time.

Read Along

For the Risky Read Along, the choice is To Wed A Stranger by Edith Layton. So, go get your hands on this book, paper, borrow, or eBook and we’ll start a read along Wednesday July 20th.


I think the only Risky I saw was Megan and mostly I was checking out her shoes which she swore were comfortable. They were definitely cute. I had lunch with Jo Bourne, drinks with Grace Burrows, breakfast (I had coffee) with NYT Bestselling author Courtney Milan, and Post-RITA drinks with RITA winner Sherry Thomas. I’m hoping none of the glow wears off. Historical Romance authors are awesome.

Did you go to RWA? What’s your fav story?

If you didn’t go, what’s your best made-up story?

Questions to Address in Comments

1. Did you like the story overall? What did you like and/or dislike about it?

2. What did you like/dislike about the heroine?

3. Same for the hero.

4. Things you LOVED?

5. Anything that irritated or annoyed you?

I will add my 2-3 cents in the comments, too.

Short post today because I have spotty internet access!

I started To Wed a Stranger by Edith Layton in order to prepare for Carolyn’s Risky Read-Along. I intended to read a little each day, like I usually do, and I expected to be behind in my reading as I usually am.
But I literally could not put this book down. I can’t wait for the Read-Along to begin!
While I was poking around the internet for information about Edith Layton, I came across this write-up on Wikipedia. Subject: Regency Novel: “Georgette Heyer, Barbara Metzger, Joan Smith, Marion Chesney, Mary Balogh, Jo Beverley, Nancy Butler, Lisa Kleypas, Stephanie Laurens…. Amanda McCabe and Julia Quinn.”
Our Amanda in such exalted company!!!! Now that’s just where she belongs.

What was the last book you read that you could not put down?

Are you prepared for the Risky Read-Along?
