Fantasy-writer Melanie Rawn has taken a turn towards English Regency Romance in "The Rushden Legacy." In typical Rawn fashion, her female protagonists are willful and quick tempered and scenes are resplendent with witty repartee. This novella makes for a quick, enjoyable read for fans of Rawn, as well as those of lighthearted historical romance. It was especially amusing to observe the word choices and patterns of speech that appeared to be researched.

Fiery Diana is quickly approaching a matronly age without a suitable marriage prospect in sight -- she has spent her seasons in London charming all the eligible bachelors, but keeping them at an appropriate distance. When her father arranges a marriage with a neighboring heir (who happens to be boorish and rude), Diana is horrified and is only able to avoid the engagement by proclaiming that she is already secretly betrothed to her best friend's brother. Roger Rushden, the oblivious groom-to-be, is a reckless and headstrong playboy. Roger is preoccupied with his approaching thirtieth birthday and is eager to marry to create an heir for his family, as it is tradition that the male Rushden heir dies prior to his thirtieth in a freak accident. When Roger hears of her lie about his betrothal to Diana, he informs her that he intends to keep it, much to Diana's chagrin.
just one girl
This was my first book by Ms. Ellen Randolph, and I found it was a delightful read. I liked its unusual legacy, colorful characters, and its fine writing. I will not repeat the storyline here which one reviewer has done so well. But my only complaint is that although I liked both female characters--they were spirited, intelligent, not the tiresome milk and water misses-- but Diana's behavior toward her fiancee at the end of the book was somewhat baffling, especially when Roger came back from his military duty, I thought Diana would feel overjoyed and eager to go through with the marriage, but instead she became spiteful when Roger tried to kiss her, she scratched his face and bit him; She even viciously said to him " I hate you! ....I wish to God you had been killed in Portugal!" No one should say this to anyone that just returned from serving his country, let alone to one's future husband. Needless to say that turned me off. The only flaw. Still a keeper though.
