Publisher's Summary

Intrepid and outspoken, Blythe Culpepper is dragged against her will to London. To her dismay, her guardian enlists the devilishly attractive Lord Leventhorpe, the one man she detests, to assist with her coming out. Since their first encounter, hostile looks and cutting retorts have abounded whenever they meet, yet she cannot deny the way her body reacts when he's near. So perhaps it's no surprise that upon overhearing another woman scheming to entrap Tristan into marriage, Blythe risks all to warn him.
Haunted by childhood trauma, Tristan, the austere and controlled Marquis of Leventhorpe, usually avoids social gatherings. So why, against his better judgement, does he agree to aid his closet friend in presenting the Culpeppers? Might it be because one Culpepper stirs more than his interest? Blythe taxes him to his limits with her sharp wit and even sharper tongue. Yet, he cannot deny that her beauty fascinates him. However, when an old enemy comes calling, using Blythe to settle old scores, Tristan must decide if protecting his honor is more important than winning the heart of the woman he has come to love.

Great book and awesome narration..

Another great romance from Collette Cameron. I just loved all the “B’s”: Blythe, Brooke, Brette, Blaire and Blaike. And I loved the other players: Tristan, Raven, Whitehouse, Maddox, Francine and Hawk. I despised Burlington, Rosemary Sanford and Phillips, who got exactly what he deserved, but it would have been better if he’d died.

What little was told about why Tristan could be so cold and unfeeling was pretty awful, it just showed what a truly horrible his father was. BUT as he drew closer to Blythe the more his walls came down. This really was a very good love story but also a story showing just how depraved men could be way back then and how the “ton” were never held accountable for their wicked deeds.

There was no sex but there was love and affection and passion. You don’t need sex when you have all that. At least, I don’t.

As to the narration: Again, Stevie Zimmerman was fantastic. Her male voices are wonderful and her emotions are fabulous. I love listening to her.

Too much internal dialogue

What did you like best about Blythe: Schemes Gone Amiss? What did you like least?

The story line was good. The heroine does not immediately fall for the hero. She likes him and their relationship grows.
The issue is that they discuss so much internally. At one point the hero's internal dialogue indicates that it wants to slap the hero and I agree. If the h/h talked to each other, then they would have been together faster. The hero has some emotional issues and it would have been better to have them get together earlier and try to solve his issues through the evolution of their relationship, but the author did not go this way.


What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

There is always a HEA in a regency romance, so I am not sure why this is a good question to ask. If the h/h get together in the end it is usually okay.


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

There is always a hollow sound to SZ narration. I think this is the recording and not anything she does. Eventually it gets better and the recording improves.


Do you think Blythe: Schemes Gone Amiss needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Yes, there are 3 more heroines left in the family to get married ( as this is the only thing a woman in that era can do). I expect a few more books.


Any additional comments?

It could have been a little better if it was edited down. The author writes really good novellas and this could have been one of them, if it was cut.
