The Scandalous Season Paperback – May 1, 1979. by Nina Coombs Pykare (Author). This was my first Pykare book, and I have to say, I'm not very impressed. The hero and heroine were completely forgettable and honestly have no depth. The heroine is a weepy, silly girl, very emotional - she could have been an emotional heroine who is also endearing, I have no problem with that - however she fails to inspire any emotion in me other than exasperation. The hero is - what do I say to best describe him? - standard.

This was my first Pykare book, and I have to say, I'm not very impressed. The hero and heroine were completely forgettable and honestly have no depth. The heroine is a weepy, silly girl, very emotional - she could have been an emotional heroine who is also endearing, I have no problem with that - however she fails to inspire any emotion in me other than exasperation. The hero is - what do I say to best describe him? - standard. He's typical of the aloof, pretending-to-not-be-in-love kind, (and it's not even written in a good way).
There was not nearly enough time for the hero and the heroine to have fallen in love for their HEA at the end of the book. Actually, it seems that the heroine (must have?) fell in love at first sight, because she insists many times in her heart, from the get-go, that she 'loves' him. Weird, considering he didn't show her any lover-like treatment at all. And seriously, she basically responds to all of her contrived misunderstandings about the hero with bouts of tears. Ugh. The plot was cliched, riddled with stereotypes, and very predictable, and the ending was a disgrace. I would have given this book a 3 star rating (because for all its faults I finished it, and honestly it was a passable read,) but I took off one star for the ending alone. It tried to tie off all the lose plot threads that were introduced in the book (and there were a number of unnecessary ones) but it failed miserably. Side characters were boring, boring, boring.
I have no love for this book at all, and I doubt I'll purchase Pykare's books in the future, if this is anything to go by. Not worth your money, go read somebody else - Heyer, Clare Darcy, Laura Matthews, Joan Smith, Gayle Buck, to name a few.

A Regency Marchioness who wears men's clothing and rides astride. Obviously I can't say that it NEVER happened, but it is hard to imagine a more cartoon-like depiction of Regency England.

I don't expect Heyer with regard to the language and social behavior in all my Regency romances. I recognize that sometimes the language used is not going to be an exact fit for the time period and some characters are going to display behavior that does not conform to that expected of persons living in the Regency period.

There is a limit, however, to the historical inaccuracies a "Regency" romance can contain without destroying the story's ability to transport the reader to another time and place. For me, the reason for reading Regency romances, as opposed to modern romances, is to escape to another time and place far from the dreary society of 21st century America.

In addition to the historical inaccuracies, this book is simply poorly written. The dialogue is stilted and trite. I have read other works by Ms. Pykare and have generally been pleased, but she should have put this one in the round file rather than having it published.

I rather liked this old-fashioned Regency novel. Pretty standard theme - marriage of convenience between an older (more worldly) man and a young country miss.

Robert and Rebecca are very mismatched. She somehow keeps getting into scrapes and he is never pleased with her. Very much an alpha male character. Early in the book, Robert punishes her disobedience by spanking her. It is more humiliating than abusive and since he constantly tells her she is nothing but a schoolroom miss, I chose to ignore it and enjoyed the rest of the book.

Both characters grow during the course of the book and we see Robert falling in love and not wanting to. We also get to see Robert in a different light and find he is not the monster Rebecca believes him to be. I liked the secondary characters including Robert's brother. I also liked that Rebecca rides like she was born on a horse and does not completely lose her mischievous ways.

Pleasant but dated (70ish) reading.
