Another story by Claudy Conn, so easy to fall in love with. This book review has been a fight for the world, and finally I got it up!

Chelsea was so very easy to connect and fall in love with. She has to live with her cruel guardian, (Who is easy to hate.) she's sharp and witty, what else can a heroine need to be amazing? A plot line that can amuse you through the night, a quick read worth picking up.
If you want a Regency Historical Romance this is a read to look at.

This was is wonderful book about a young woman coming of age that was pretty much tossed away by her aunt and sent to a boarding school and forgot about. Chelsea is young innocent little minx, who says whatever is on her mind most of the time. Her best friend is Sam, I love the way they tease one another all the time. But who will she chose her best friend or the rogue of a man who was assigned to escort her around?

I’m a huge fan of Regency Romance books and I have to say I loved Claudy Conn’s book. The plot flowed nicely together to make a wonderful story. Once I started Runaway Heart I had to finish it. I was done the same day I started. The characters are wonderful and well written. Chelsea is defiantly my favorite. She reminds me of my self sometimes as she does not have a filter and says things she should sometimes keep to herself Hehe. You really fall into the book and time period. I’d recommend you reading it if you haven’t already.

Claudy Conn has done it again...she sucked me in another Regency Historical Romance and made me fall in love with the characters and their world.
Lord Wainwright is now going on my list of FAVE sexy, male characters that I would to marry...Oops...do not tell my hubby. =)
Chelsea is wanting to make her mark in the world and find the man who will sweep her off her feet, just like her friends keep talking about. She's about to turn 19 and she wants to meet the one person who will make her happy for the rest of her life.
Unfortunately, she's dealing with Aunt drama who has not even been there for her since she received guardianship of Chelsea. She just wants Chelsea because of the trust money she has.
Chelsea runs to her Godmother's house to be around someone who really adores and loves her for who she is. Daisy, her godmother, wants to find a perfect suitor for Chelsea and enrolls her nephews help to get Chelsea out there in front of the eligible bachelors eyes.
Lord Wainwright does not want to watch over a child, at least that is what he thinks of her when he first sees her, until Chelsea has a make over and now Lord Wainwright cannot keep his eyes off of her. He knows it is wrong to have feelings for Chelsea, but he cannot help himself. There is something about the beautiful Chelsea that has him in a bind.
Augusta, Chelsea's Aunt, who is nothing, but a vindictive woman is even more angry with Chelsea since Chelsea seems to be stealing away Augusta's handsome rogue. Now Augusta wants Chelsea out of the way and she has recruited her brother to help her sweep Chelsea away from the man she has had her eyes on for awhile...and her brother is ruthless enough to do anything to have Chelsea for himself since money is involved and his greedy for more.
Chelsea is about to be thrown in a world she has to become adult quick and she finds herself in love with a man who may belong to another and a world where men will do anything to have her because of how much she is worth.

Seriously...I love Claudy Conn's regency romances. She has me fall in love with the rogue every time and she also has me loving the female characters as well.
Even the secondary characters are ones that I fell in love with. Not only is Chelsea having her moment of love...but so is her Godmother, Daisy, which is definitely a match made in heaven. Daisy deserved a happily ever after as well for everything she had gone through.
The villains in the story are ruthless and it seems it is a family trait. They will do anything to get what they want.
Claudy Conn definitely knows how to transport you back in time where men tried everything to sweep a woman off their feet so they can marry them. I will say this, Lord Wainwright can sweep me off my feet anytime. I'm jealous over Chelsea.
The steamy scenes between the characters will require you taking a cold shower afterwards though, so be prepared ahead of time.

I recommend this book to anyone who loves reading historical romances, is a fan of Claudy Conn, and loves to fall in love with a rogue who becomes tamed because of one beautiful young lady who changes his ways.
Claudy Conn even gives you a sneak into other stories that she has written after you read, "Runaway Heart", which will make you want more anyways.
I know I cannot get enough of Claudy's books. =)

It is no secret that I am not a historical fan but I am a Claudy fan, so I went in to this with an open mind and by chapter two I was hooked! Staying up into the wee hours to finish it.

Claudy's heroine's are always full of mischief and fiesty, which I adore and her hero's may be a little rough around the edges but when they fall, they fall hard. I have no complaints about this story at all, it was a thoroughly enjoyable tale and I think she's starting to convert me into a historical fan :)

My Opinion:

I wasn't sure if I would like this book, not because of the author or any other reasons but one its a romance book. I don't read romance books unless its a paranormal romance genre. I find romance books are boring and have no point to them well I think this book has changed my mind. Who knew this short story book would change my mind about romance! Anyways, back to the what the book was about. I first started out feeling bad for Chelsea and the life she was living by being by herself. No parents and what I call a pain in the butt aunt who doesn't care about her. Then Lord Wainwright comes into the picture. Even through you can't really see him because after all it's a book but you can tell he is sexy! Lord Wainwright is a ladies man who I think doesn't know how to love but after hanging out with Chelsea he is memorized by her.
Given some parts of this book you could see coming but the way Claudy had wrote those parts in was better then what I had imagine in my mind. I'm glad I was given the chance to read this book and that it was free for me to get it! The romance between Chelsea and Lord Wainwright is dreamy and charming. Also, how the author's writing was in descriptive and not run on was amazing. I will be reading more of her work for sure! And maybe I see some more romance books in my life.
Star Rating:

5 out of 5 stars

Review by: Katherine sowerby on Oct. 13, 2012 :
Another fabulous Historical Romance from Claudy Conn, had me hooked from the first page.

Chelsea a young beauty, high spirited and outspoken most of the time, finds herself taken under the wing of her godmother for her launch into London Society. Lady Daisy enlists the help of her very charming nephew Lord Brett Wainwright asking him to squire Chelsea around on her first London season, much to his dismay. Lord Brett has no interest in young maidens and marriage, prefering to dally with the more mature ladies. We meet Chelsea's best friend Sam,their playfull teasing and banter made me laugh. This story has some unexpected events, as the path of true love rarely runs smooth, I'm sure you will enjoy a wonderfull romance.

This book was beyond words to me, and definitely deserves 6 stars. :)

Claudy Conn definitely knocks another one right out of the park. From start to finish I was completely hooked. I totally fell in love with Chelsea and think that she is by far my favorite historical heroine so far. She was so relatable and I'm sure that everyone will find a little of yourself in her.

The story and characters that unfolded were amazing and I was totally pulled into their world. I definitely recommend this book and I know that you will love it as much as I did. :)

Thanks again Claudy for another amazing book!!

Chelsea and Bretton have great chemistry in spite of the fact that he thinks of her as a child. However, his eyes are opened when she is dressed like a woman and other men start to pay attention. A few unexpected expected twists, a dash of humor and a very good story.

Runaway Heart by Claudy Conn
Orphaned and neglected by her hateful aunt, Chelsea Halloway is still in the care of Mrs. Farthing at her boarding school, even though she’s almost nineteen. When she’s told that she will be returning to Aunt Augusta, Chelsea quickly gets her good friend Sam Martin to help her escape so she can find and speak to her trustee, Lord Rupurt Lytton. Before she knows it Chelsea is the belle of London thanks to her godmother, Aunt Daisy and Lytton.

Lord Bretton Wainwright wants nothing to do with marriage or debutante’s but when his dear aunt asks him to help escort Chelsea about so she will get noticed….he does. What the rogue did not expect was that the little minx of a girl will break down his walls and make him desire her more than he ever thought possible.

Set in Regency times our characters rub shoulders with historical figures such as Beau Brummell and Lady Jersey as well as sightings of Byron and the Prince Regent. As always you have the villains you want to pummel and a heroine with a heart for strays….animal and human alike. An enjoyable story with action, jealousy and of course….romance.

4.5 out of 5 stars, follow a wonderful story about how handsome rogue falls in love with "his brat." I loved the plot and all of the major characters (Chelsea, Brett, Sam, & Lady Daisy)!! Chelsea and Brett are so cute together! Plus, I thoroughly enjoyed all of the antics Chelsea led everyone (mostly herself) into!! Her antics were especially funny when she was helping some defenseless creature in one way or another. =0)

I recommend this novel to those who love historical romances!!
