    One thought on “Rescuing Rosalind”

    1. Fans of regency romance will fall in love with Fanny, aka Rosalind, from the first scene in Rescuing Rosalind. When Fanny meets Captain Buckingham (Buck), Marquis of Deal, as she playacts the character of Gannymede (As You Like It), readers will know they’re in for an adventurous and entertaining story. Unfortunately, Fanny is only seventeen, or in Fanny’s words “a great many months older than seventeen,” and Captain Buck is only on a short leave before returning to sea. Fast forward thr [...]

    2. This has a cute beginning and follows Rosalind (Fanny), an aspiring actress, through her mishaps in London society as she acts different parts in her day to day. Captain Buckingham, Buck, sees through it all and falls for the real girl, and the two together are at different times funny, sweet, confusing and confused, a bit juvenille, and drawn to one another. They had things settled between them more quickly than I expected. It seemed a little instant once they flipped that switch. I could have [...]

    3. I am totally enjoying this series from G.G. Candagriff. i have enjoyed having characters return from previous tales and the resulting inter-relationships. Good storytelling and solid writing. I'm onto the next in the series already.

    4. Cute but unresolvedThere was a suspense element that was never answered. Other than that it was a nice book she wasn't particularly smart. Their meet cute was really cute.

    5. Fans of regency romance will fall in love with Fanny, aka Rosalind, from the first scene in Rescuing Rosalind. When Fanny meets Captain Buckingham (Buck), Marquis of Deal, as she playacts the character of Gannymede (As You Like It), readers will know they’re in for an adventurous and entertaining story.

    6. Fanny is an adventurous young lady whose desires do not fit in with civilized society. She wants to be an actress, but the structure of her station make that an impossibility.Buck has recently returned to London after serving in the Kings Navy as a Captain. He was enchanted with Fanny when he met her three years prior, at which time he nicknamed her Rosalind. Marriage and romance are not part of his immediate plans, but with a feisty young lady like Rosalind, they become a necessity.Rescuing Ros [...]

    7. Really liked this fourth novel in G.G. Vandagriff's rogues series. This novel tells the story of Fanny who uses Shakespeare to escape from the abuse she received from her mother. At the age of 17, she is awaiting her debut in society and is staying with her sister Elise who is married to a Duke. Fanny meets the somewhat jaded friend of the Duke's Capt. Buck while playacting a scene from As You Like It in the garden. Buck falls for this spritely girl and from that point calls her Rosalind. The tw [...]

    8. RESCUING ROSALIND by G.G. Vandagriff is an interesting Regency Historical Romance. A fast paced tale of love,passion,secrets,scandal,the theater,and a damsel in distress. An interesting story of a sea captain,Captain Buckingham Kernow-Smith (Buck) and his lady actress, Fanny, aka Rosalind. Of course you have a bit of Shakespeare,"As You Like It",and Covent Garden theater,with a headstrong Rosalind and secretive Buck readers can't go wrong with this intriguing Regency. If you enjoy Regency romanc [...]

    9. Fanny can't stand society norms and continues to bristle against them. Her mischevious ways are nearly her ruin.Buck is a navy captain who is very bored with the ton. He has no idea what to do since the war is over but he can't keep his mind off Fanny, his Rosalind.Together they get into mischeif and eventually fall in love. They are perfectly suited.Quite a few things keep them apart including a duel, a very sick sister ( reminded me of both Little Women and Sense and Sensibility), and Buck bei [...]

    10. Excellent bookThe only drawback to this book is that the hero and heroine were only together for roughly the first half to three quarters of the book. The rest of the time they were separated for somewhat false allegations. The heroines sister and her husband the duke have become a little pretentious in this book as opposed to the way they were in their own story. Nevertheless I enjoyed it and am looking forward to the last book of this series which is the story of the third sister, Sophie.

    11. This was a different twist to the Regency-type romances. Captain Buckingham Kernow-Smith runs into a girl dressed up as a boy and pretending to be Rosalind from a Shakespeare play. ‘Rosalind’ ends up being the beautiful, but rambunctious, Fanny Edwards. Three years pass before the two characters meet again, and the Captain finds that ‘Rosalind’ snubs the rules of the ton and dances on the edge of what is proper. He is intrigued by her, despite his aversion to marriage; but they seem to d [...]

    12. This was a fun story. I liked Rosalind, she's a very interesting character, very unconventional in a very conventional world. I also like Buck, he's a very manly man, sailor of the seven seas, never planning to settle down anywhere. Most of the time, the story line moves right along, but it does seem to drag a bit in the middle. Regency romance is one of my very favorite genres, especially when done right, and G G Vandegriff is one of the best at this genre. You won't regret picking this book up [...]

    13. Well formed characters. A slim read but believable. Well toned, and despite not many pages I am hard pressed to say what could of been added because the story flowed effortlessly and concluded at the ending as this type of romance usually ends. I enjoyed the interplay between thw characters and couldn't put this book down. I am grateful there are oher books rounding out this cast of characters. I shall look them up to read.

    14. I really did enjoy this book loving both of the main characters, the plot, and particularly the writing style - very appropriate verbiage and regency-era slang. The drop to 3 stars resulted from a rushed ending with large periods of time suddenly glossed over and a few unfinished plot threads: who shot Buck and what happened to him. The final chapters should have been better developed and fleshed out; after all, it isn't all about the chase but the catch, too. All too suddenly it was over.

    15. Although this was a short book it read like a long one. There were at least 4 spots where I thought the story could of ended but no there was additional complications. Rosalind was annoying in the choices she made. Saved once she goes and does the same stupid thing all over again. This book has great potential but too much plot if there is such a thing.

    16. 4.5 stars. A fun Regency story with a very feisty heroine! It was interesting to get a sense of the "rules" of the upper society and what types of things were acceptable for women. I haven't read any of this author's Regency stories (which I understand have some characters in common with this one), but I will be checking them out!

    17. Rescuing Rosalind sweeps the reader into the distant times of propriety, balls and English nobility with well-written prose, believable and engaging characters and descriptive scenery. Read full review in the 2013 May issue of InD’tale Magazine.

    18. As a fan of G G Vandagriff, I loved this book as much as the others I have read in this collection. Fanny is a great girl with fire and imagination, and Buck is just the man to keep up with her latest scheme.

    19. A sweet romance. Nothing super unique but it is well written, with a decent cast of characters. I do wish that Rosalind wasn't *quite* so impetuous, but since she did suffer for her mistakes, I am not as annoyed as I am by most books with flutterbrained damsels in distress.

    20. This wasn't the best of the "Six Rogues and Their Ladies" books, but I still liked it. It is a "clean read" - nothing sexy, but there is non-descriptive kissing. I thought it ended quite suddenly; I wasn't sure who directed the bad guy action towards the end of the book.

    21. Of course I love it. This is my best Regency!"Regency romance in the style of Austen and Heyer. Love as it's meant to be written!"--InDtale Magazine"Another Regency Delight from G.G. Vandagriff."--Meridian Magazine

    22. This heroine bugged me. She is annoyingly thoughtless of her actions and how they effect others. She should have been written as a blond with ADHD! Then there is the fact that the book should have ended just over half way through. I forced myself to finish.

    23. I loved this book. I can't remember if it was a freebee or it only cost .99. I loved the characters of Fanny and Buck, the only problem I had with it was who ordered the hit on Buck? Ms. Vandagriff never did say and that bothered me.

    24. Delightful easy readI enjoyed this book and the series. It is nice to visit old friends and see how their lives are progressing while being entertained with the new stories

    25. Another thoroughly enjoyable Regency romp by GG Vandagriff. Clean, romantic, dramatic and funny. Loved the storyline as well as the main charactersd supporting ones as well.

    26. I got to read an advanced copy of this one and I loved it! Lots of fun, some great romance with some solid character growth to give it depth. One of GG's best regencies so far.
