Having had her recommended so often (by this list, inter alia) I tried to read "Regency Buck" and couldn't pick it up again by the time I was halfway through.  Is that one untypical of her work, or is there just something in her plotting that leaves me cold?

Than play a sanctimonious part with a pirate head and a pirate heart.
