Product Description

Product Description

Come back to a time when manners are everything and rules are made to never be broken. Come back to a time when men are in charge and women do what they are told. . .
Yeah, that never happened.
Welcome to Megan Bryce's Regencyland, where ladies with backbone get what they want. Where a woman can thumb her nose at rules and care little for convention, and yet somehow, unexpectedly and most reluctantly, find love.

To Tame A Dragon

Lady Amelia Delaney is known for her sharp tongue, no-nonsense attitude, and sizable fortune. Numerous suitors have tried to win her hand for the money, for the challenge, and for a rather unfortunate bet. She knows the unflattering reasons behind her numerous proposals– can she ever accept that a man would want to marry her just for herself?

Jameson Pendrake is a devil-may-care dandy who cares for naught but fun and fashion. But behind his laughing green eyes lies a dark history, and he calls off his wedding because of his fear of repeating the past. He can not simply give up on the idea of marriage– a wife is the best defense against the yearly crop of scheming mothers and their frilly daughters. But to allay his fears he needs a woman strong enough to laugh in the face of his past. A woman unflappable, unwavering, and unbroken. He knows just the woman. The trick, it seems, is in getting her to accept.

It didn't matter that the end result was obvious - Megan Bryce tells this story of how Jameson woos Amelia with humour, a good pace, and diverting characters. This was a funny, sweet story with strong female characters.

An altogether enjoyable story. A spirited heroine who is forever feisty and a hero who takes her bossiness in his stride tangle in several ways before finally realizing that they do love each other.

HASH(0x987b4804) out of 5 stars Light, feel-good romance Nov. 1 2012
By LaylaReader - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Similar to her book `To Catch a Spinster', this story is about a strong woman who has no desire to be tied down.

It is a light-hearted, feel-good book and perhaps not for history purists.

Lady Amelia Delaney is an heiress who values her independence, regularly turning down marriage proposals in a way that earns her the nickname of the `dragon'. She has been close to her brother's friend Jameson Pendrake since childhood and has no qualms about telling him what a cad he is when he cancels his wedding to the sweet Miss Underwood.

In the wake of his `scandalous' behaviour, Jameson suddenly realises that the perfect woman has been in his sights all along: his best friend, Amelia. He admires, respects and loves her; she knows all of his demons and accepts him for the person he is. The trouble is that Amelia finds his proposal utterly ridiculous.
His challenge is to make Amelia see how perfectly matched they are.

HASH(0x983aaad4) out of 5 stars Sorry, this one missed the mark even more than the first! Feb. 5 2013

After reading the first book in this series, "To Catch A Spinster," I was left with an awful taste in my mouth. As much as I wanted to read a familiar, well-known author in an attempt to cleanse my Kindle pallet, I decided to give Ms. Bryce the benefit of the doubt and try the second book. I already had it in my library as a previous free selection, so what did I have to lose?

Oh my. I didn't "lose" anything, but I did waste precious reading time, which is even worse.

This book is just very poorly written. The plot is unlikely and frankly, nonsensical. The ending is just...well, odd and unsatisfying. The characters have very few redeeming qualities. There are so many historical romance books out there, even as free selections, that are head and shoulders above this poor attempt at the genre.

Amelia has been given the nickname "the dragon" by the men of the ton. Apparently, it is because she is rather assertive and turns down proposals with regularity. How this makes her a dragon, I'm not quite sure. I'd call it being choosy. At some point, there was some man that attempted to take advantage of her and get her in a compromising situation in order to gain her fortune, but the whole topic is only vaguely discussed. Why even bother? It doesn't appear to really have an impact on her personality.

After bailing out a long-time family friend from a potentially ruinous situation, she finds herself the object of his affection. Lord Nighting, although handsome (although he's never really described in detail so I guess we have to take the author's word for it), is irresponsible and often reprehensible. Not exactly a adventageous match.

Readers are supposed to believe this rake has an epiphany and finds himself convinced Amelia is the woman he's destined to marry. After all, she can keep him out of trouble. Oh sure, that's a good reason to marry someone. He begins to pursue her and attempt to convince her to accept. Of course she refuses (this is, after all called the RELUCTANT BRIDE collection).

Suddenly, she changes her mind. An uneventful marriage follows. It is just one let down after another with this book. There really didn't seem a valid reason for me to push the "page forward" button on my Kindle other than getting this book over with so that I could move onto something better.

I'd suggest you bypass this book. Even "free" is too high a price.

I was a little hesitant about reading this after being disappointed by "to catch a spinster," but when I saw I could borrow this book for free on my kindle, I decided to give it a shot. The overall story was better than "to catch a spinster" but it didnt have the magic the first half of "to catch a spinster" had with h/h. Although some silly things happened in this book, I was laughing out loud - it was just so funny, even if some scenes were unbelievable. One example was the four Underwood brothers proposing to Amelia - hilarious! Another is Jameson's horse and cane - lol.

This book though has something I wish the last book had so that the author had better reasons to fill up the pages than just focusing all the attention on h/h - this book had a second story with Miss Underwood - the woman Jameson broke up his engagement with. Amelia was determined to find her a more suitable husband and though it was predictable who she would end up with, it was a good choice.

***SPOILER - however, I think it was best to find Miss Underwood a husband first before Amelia married Jameson.***

Also this book had a very good reason why the bride should be reluctant yet unlike the heroine in the first book who should have given in sooner - this heroine did instead! I think Amelia gave in too soon after all she's been through and knowing Jameson. Also while the affection between the two was undeniable - I dont know if they were in love. I did like Amelia and Jameson together, even though I felt they were more friends than lovers - or maybe this is due to the lack of sex scenes - but either way you could tell they would be content in their marriage.

Overall, I though the story was ok. I might be being a little unfair since I kept comparing Amelia and Jameson to Olivia and Nathaniel (the h/h of to catch a spinster) but it's just that their love was much more believable than Amelia and Jameson - even though Amelia and Jameson had known each other since childhood. (Although Amelia was definitely the more considerate, smarter, kind and loyal of the two heroines). But I just wish Amelia and Jameson's love was more developed - neither had secret feelings for the other - Jameson suddenly has this bright idea that they will suit because she has a backbone and he wont dare hurt her - not because he finally realizes he's in love. And Amelia eventual thinks they would suit because they do get along well and no one knows her better than him - not because she realizes she's in love either so it wasnt very romantic for me. I mean I think Robin - Amelia's brother - had more romantic feelings for Jameson - and neither one is gay - but Robin's fierce loyalty to Jameson, had me thinking at times!

In retrospect though I dont regret reading this series - despite some frustrations and disappointments. If a third book comes out, I'll most likely read it - this author does give us some moments worth reading about.

HASH(0x984b1414) out of 5 stars Fun and funny April 30 2013
By zenreader - Published on

Humor in a romance novel can be difficult to pull off. Oftentimes, what is construed as humor in a heroine can come across as bitter sarcasm and in a hero, makes him insensitive and cloddish, though if he's an interesting character, he might be forgiven his quirks.

This story made me laugh, at the witty, very funny verbal exchanges between not only Amelia and Jameson, but also the supporting characters of Amelia's mother and brother. The dialogue is laced with the affection and kinship of many years standing, as the relationship suddenly moved from bickering friendship to marital love.

The reasons I did not give 5 stars:
- While I enjoyed the storyline and the writing, I felt some depth of character development was shortchanged. The shift in Jameson's feelings towards Amelia came about rather quickly...a bit more self-reflective angst and doubt would have been fun to see.
- The jilted fiance, Clarice, provided a good backdrop storyline but I wished her character and the ensuing relationship with Amelia's brother were more fully developed as well.

Finally, a lovely romantic read that is uncomplicated by tortuous misunderstandings and overly gratuitous sex, is to be highly commended.

HASH(0x98824fc0) out of 5 stars I wouldn't recommend it- you might need to skip a bit May 6 2013
By Kate the Great - Published on

Not a very complicated or gripping plot but the ending was really cute. I always worry if a read will be clean and while there were no explicit sex scenes there were a few times in the story that I felt uncomfortable. Not squeaky clean but not a bodice ripping romance just so you know. I got it for free and I would be very hesitant before getting more from this author.
