Coming to this thread after reading Miss Ruby Jones's Sweet Rocket review of Carla Kelly's latest, I decided I needed to check out her work, and just bought Reforming Lord Ragsdale. I've missed traditional Regencies since I wandered away to other genres; I'm really looking forward to reading this one!

I wasn't 25 pages into this book when I knew the writing was really special.

One little bit that I quite liked involved the use of "imprimatur":

"Don't you agree, John?"

What? What? Clarissa was gazing at him with something akin to adoration, and obviously waiting for an answer.

"How could I disagree with you, my dear?" he replied, hoping that would satisfy, and wondering to what he had just put his imprimatur. She appeared satisfied with his response, if he rightly interpreted the little squeeze she gave his arm.

Pay attention, John, he admonished himself, even as her voice rippled on and he thought about his departure that morning.

The good news: Reforming Lord Ragsdale is now available for the Nook! Hooray! The bad news : I checked Sony, Kobo, and Smashwords but it isn't available in those formats. Also, Marian's Christmas Wish and Carla Kelly's Christmas Stories are still only available either Kindle or directly through Cedar Fort. Summer Campaign (which just popped up on Cedar Fort's website in the past couple of weeks) is still only available as an ebook through Cedar Fort. I'll wait and see if the publisher decides to make it available through other sites. Off to download Lord Ragsdale Smile
