    1. If you enjoy a well written Regency that is layered with well developed characters who make you laugh and feel good this is the story to read.Jane Asford is a new author for me and this was the first, but not the last, of her stories I ve read She writes an involving story with a nod to modern readers of Regency while keeping with the s of the times I liked that Sometimes I feel that too many regency authors pack way too much sex into their stories at the expense of the story and totally disrega [...]


    2. Alan maybe a smart man, but to be honest where his woman is concerned the boy is stupid, and never says the right thing, he turned from the fire, checked slightly at the sight of her, then said, Good day You know why I am here, I imagine She allowed her brows to rise a little higher I thought we would marry next week, he went on I have inquired about a special license, and it seems easy enough to procure Under the circumstances, I don t think banns are really I enjoyed this book it kept my atten [...]


    3. If you don t examine this too much, it s a satisfactory story about an actress s daughter and a duke s son, who are polar opposites but also super attracted to each other But that s no way to read anything, so, behold a list of everything I found deeply irritating or disliked.1 Alan, the hero, is openly, almost proudly sexist, and he never changes At the end of the book, Ariel, the heroine, points out that she herself is a woman and she is intelligent and insightful and the very opposite of a sk [...]


    4. ARC REVIEW The Bargain was originally released in 1997 and was re released 2014 It s nothing what I expected and was pleasantly surprised by it I haven t read Jane Ashford before and really enjoyed it It has a little bit of everything I like romance, mystery, adventure It s a tantalizing misadventure between an unconventional couple, the youngest son of a Duke and the daughter of an actress It was an amusing read it s not everyday you read a romance where they are hunting ghosts at the request o [...]


    5. The Bargain By Jane Ashford is an intriguing, suspense filled historical romance filled with unexpected twists and turns throughout which made it difficult for me to pry myself from between the pages I absolutely loved these characters Ariel Harding is a very determined and persistent heroine with a strong sense of independence and a need to uncover the truth behind her mother s death Lord Alan Gresham is a man of science and reason but certainly has no clue about romance and emotions of the hea [...]

    7. THE BARGAIN starts out great, it s funny, sexy and has an intriguing premise Because he has a serious scientific mind, the hero s services have been requested to find the culprits behind a very annoying ghost Ariel is also determined to unmask the ghost because it has been rud it may be her recently deceased Mom s spirit and she wants to find out the truth behind her Mom s death It s not long before these two bump into each other, get locked in a cupboard together, experience all kinds of new ti [...]


    8. Parts of the plot are, well, glaringly absent But it IS a romance, after all However, the combination of all the minor characters makes the work hang together, and I ll grant it three stars for that alone.


    9. Cover The cover is pretty standard for a Regency romance I always love the dresses they show on the covers They are downright beautiful.Title I love the title It fits the book well Of course, the bargain was pretty specific but plans don t always go the way we plan, do they Characters I love Ariel She is definitely a strong independent heroine and those are my favorites Alan is a bit pigheaded and really doesn t understand women at all Of course, this provided me with amusement throughout the bo [...]


    10. I would have rated it higher especially since I really enjoy Ariel as a character , but I felt like Alan didn t really change his views on women I think it would have been a lot interesting if each interaction he had with the many different women in the book taught him about how wrong his convictions about women really were if he d learned how diverse and varied people of the female sex can be, instead of just admitting that there are exceptions to his stereotypes those exceptions being pretty [...]

    13.

    16. First reviewed at Keeper BookshelfI have been a longtime reader of Jane Ashford s Regency romances And I was delighted to see The Bargain reissued as a prequel to The Duke s Sons which premiers in January of 2016, which gives me of her stories to look forward to.Admittedly, there are times when our hero, Lord Alan Gresham is very difficult to warm up to let alone root for in this romance He is a scientist and a man of his times which means his opinion of women s brain power is rather belittling [...]


    17. Actual rating 1.5 stars DNF at 18%.I love historical fiction, England, and the Regency era and I m actually a romantic at heart, though my preferred romance in fiction is of the subtle, sweet variety But as a result, I don t read historical romances that often, which as a whole are often way sensual and explicit than I like Still, I want to give them a chance, and sometimes I do read them After having read A School for Unusual Girls, I was reminded of the best of historical fiction though I m a [...]

    22. What I liked I really enjoyed Ariel She s really funny and I like how she handles Alan and his brothers The search for Ariel s mother and the ghost is quite odd and isn t as well explained as it should be, BUT if you re looking for a light fun read The Bargain is for you What I didn t like Lord Alan, and the other Gresham brothers think women are complete idiots without the capability of thought or opinion I was generally able to laugh it off, as Ariel is a strong female, but I know some won t b [...]


    23. Good read The hero is a scientist called in to deal with a ghost haunting Buckingham Palace during the Regency The heroine is the daughter of the woman purportedly doing the haunting Her mother apparently committed suicide and the daughter wants to know why The hero doesn t believe in ghosts so he wants to catch the hoaxers and get back to his experiments in Oxford, and he could use information the heroine can get for him The bargain between them is good for both of them the heroine isn t so alo [...]

    27. A refreshingly original historical romance I loved the realism of the similarities between Ariel and Alan and Ariel s parents The way Bess story is woven throughout is beautifully done and tackles sensitive subjects in a quiet, powerful way Ariel s search for who she is in the world is one that is easily relatable The way Alan s world view is challenged and his character development is done so honestly To me, his studious nature is in perfect relation to his interactions with people I ve known a [...]
