Reseña del editor

It's 1763. Career diplomat Alec Halsey returns to London and the shocking news his estranged elder brother, the Earl of Delvin, has not only killed his friend in a duel but become engaged to the woman he had hoped to marry. To learn more about the suspect duel, Alec reluctantly attends a weekend house party to celebrate his brother's engagement. House guests get more than they bargained for when a lady's maid is murdered, the bride-to-be attacked, and a guest is shot dead. Alec uncovers a connection between these sinister acts and his brother's duel. He must also confront a cruel twist of fate that explains why his brother loathes him and will go to any lengths to discredit him in Polite Society.

Thoroughly enjoyable introduction to this type of historical fiction. Brant has a deft palette of Regency detail and which contributes to a strong backbone for the narrative. The characters are larger than life and its not hard to read with a visual image in mind. I like the way Brant herself describes the book as crimance... a perfect genre description. The plot twisted and turned beautifully and I can honestly say I had no idea 'whodunnit' until it was revealed. I loved and hated certain characters... and look forward to the end of the year when the sequel is released. Brant's writing is filled with freshness and wit and Deadly Engagement is highly recommended.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas PART I OF AN INTRIGUING NEW SERIES 21 de marzo de 2011
Por MARIA GRAZIA - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle
A truly intriguing one. A real page turner. It's Part I of a two-part mystery series set in the Georgian Era, in England. If you dream of a book with a gorgeous hero, thrilling emotions, romance and intrigue, wit and elegance, silk and powdered wigs, you won't be disappointed, you'll find it in Lucinda Brant's DEADLY ENGAGEMENT.

1763. Alec Halsey, being a second son is not going to inherit his father's title. nor his properties. His boasting, wicked brother, Edward, is the heir to the title, Earl of Delvin, and to the family patrimony. But it seems Alec will have to renounce even more in favour of his brother: his dream to marry young beautiful Emily, his godmother's grand-daughter.

Coming back from his service as a diplomat in Paris, he discovers she is betrothed to Edward. who has also just killed one of Alec's friends, Jack, in a duel. The rivalry between the two brothers - or better the Earl of Delvin's jealousy and hatred towards his younger brother - is the driving force behind many of the events of the gripping plot. Edward and Emily are going to announce their intention to marry soon to friends and family during a grand party at St. Neots House . The party will be ravaged by unexpected events, bloody ones. During the engagement celebration the guests will be greatly shocked by a lady's maid's murder, an attack to the bride-to-be , and a guest shot dead.

Alec will have to face revelations about his own family, to cope with meeting again his first great love, Selina Jamison-Lewis, now a widow and an even more attractive woman, and he will uncover the connection between those mysterious sinister events , his friend's Jack's killing in a duel and a recently raided male brothel.
Will he find a way to conquer Emily's heart before she marries his elder brother? Will he, instead, woo his old flame, Selina, now she is a widow? What did his own mother write about his birth in a crucial letter to Selina's aunt, Lady Margaret, one of her best friends? In his investigations Alec will be helped by his bizarre republican uncle, a MP, Plantagenet Halsey, and by his loyal friend, Lord Cosmo.

You can't miss Lucinda Brant's two-part Alec Halsey Mystery series, Deadly Engagement + Deadly Affair , a perfect blend of history, romance and mystery. The first novel is now available as an e-book at all the ebook stores (Apple ibooks, Kobo, Barnes & Noble, etc). Here's a direct link to the Kindle edition on Amazon( [...] ). [...]

A reviewer recommended this novel if the reader was a fan of Sebastian St. Cyr or Julian Krestel. Those two names were all I needed to purchase this book and I am so glad I did! Having read all of the Sebastian St. Cyr series and searching for Julian Krestel novels until they are published in Kindle format, I have been searching for similar works and happily stumbled across this wonderful novel after doing a "historical mystery" search.

Twist and turns abound in this historial mystery set in the late 1700's. Alec Halsey, second son has returned after performing diplomatic work overseas only to discover that his elder brother has become betrothed to his intended. To say that his elder brother despises him is an understatement and it appear early on that that Lord Delvin will do whatever it takes to discredit, ruin and run his brother out of town. Murder abounds at a house party to celebrate Lord Delvin and Emily's engagement, where no one seems to be as they appear. Wonderful mystery, attention to detail and lush descriptions take the reader back in time. I will definately check out this author's other works. If you are looking for something new to read until the next Sebastian St. Cyr or Lady Julia Grey book is published. Take a chance and add this to your wish list. You will be glad to find another series to become enamored with. I know I am.

Por C. McClellan - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle|Compra verificada por Amazon
This book drops the reader abruptly into the action, a fairly common device when introducing new characters and settings in a novel. However, this book never stops throwing in new characters, new plotlines, new events, and so much more until you are overwhelmed and confused. The author seems to have dragged in every device ever used in approximately this time period in every mystery she has ever read. It is just too much! The novel needed a good editor to strip out the extraneous materials and subplots, or at least have the author relegate them to other books in the series. Not everything single possibility has to be dragged out in book 1! I tried to describe this book to another person when I was near the end of it, and we found ourselves laughing hysterically by the time I was halfway through. It's ridiculous. Short of a deus ex machina or an alien invasion, this book has everything: runaway servants with complex and suspicious histories who move (more or less without question) from one lead character to another to another; possible horse thievery; a hero who is confused about whom he really loves; engagements across family lines; family members (too many to list) at odds for various extremely complicated reasons; illicit affairs of both hetero- and homosexual varieties; rape and near rape; dead bodies strewn about; brothels of all sorts; beatings; blackmail; financial chicanery; bastards scattered about--you name it, it's in there. It was all just far, far too much and overwhelmed a halfway decent story. It's really too bad, because I think it could have been a pretty good book. With everything and the kitchen sink, it's a sorry mess.

4.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Had Me Guessing Until the Very End! 10 de marzo de 2011
Por Megan Miranda - Publicado en Amazon.com
Formato:Versión Kindle
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Usually with "crimances" you know who the guilty party is halfway through the book and then spend the other half being frustrated that the good guy isn't figuring it out as quick as you did. This one had me turning the pages as fast as I could to figure out who the murderer was because I couldn't figure it out! In the beginning of the book I also had no idea who Alec was going to end up with since he was teeter tottering between two females. I am satisfied with his choice of a mate and can't wait to read the second book in this series (which is not out yet as far as I can tell.) Once again, Lucinda Brant has met all of my expectations in a great historical novel author and then some!
