Comments Only a Hero Will Do

  • Suzanne Rogers

    I enjoyed this novel very much. The characters were fun, and the romance between the hero and heroine developed at a nice pace. There were villains to overcome and even an adventurous, perilous sea voyage to increase the drama. Only a Hero Will Do is a sweet love story which is well worth your time!


  • Robyn

    Fun StoryI enjoyed reading Only A Hero Will Do and found myself anxious to get back to it any time I had to put it down. The characters were likeable and the storyline had one twist after another. Perhaps the dialogue was not always true to the era, but that didn't detract too much from the pleasure I experienced while reading the book. Also appreciated a nice, clean story!

    This was a pretty good Regency utilizing an exciting non-standard plot. The protagonists are likable with some quirks for interest's sake. I'm glad I found the author.

    This really was kinda bad. Bad in that it felt very amateur in the writing, plot and character development.

I would read to a point of thinking maybe this isn't so bad, maybe this is going somewhere but then I would find out that no it's not going anywhere with that lead, that was it. Cringe worthy moments were a plenty but none more so than the last paragraph of the book.The characters of Hettie [...]

    Although I opened this book with great anticipation, I ended up a bit disappointed. Hoping for a high seas adventure and forbidden romance, I was left with a much longer and convoluted plot. Characters that were as ever changing as they were shallow, I never really cared about any of the characters, main or side. The romance was barely touched on and I never saw any catalyst to change from frustrated strangers thrust together to those who care for each other. Technically, there were various gram [...]

    This is a delightful story set in the early 1800s. The scrapes that Hettie gets herself into are highly entertaining, yet she manages to remain an innocent. The different themes in the novel all play out very nicely as Robert Withington becomes the best ever protector. Regency romances tend to have their villains and this book doesn’t disappoint. It’s as easy to take an instant dislike of Hettie’s brother as it is to like Robert Withington. Getting herself out of a detestable betrothal isn [...]
