Her grandmother, the intimidating Dowager Duchess of Atterbury, is sure she'll make a brilliant match. But to everyone's dismay, Sonia's affections alight on Darius Conover after he saves her dog's life. Darius has been plagued by rumors for at least a decade, and spends as much of his time as possible at the war front where he can avoid them and be useful besides.
But an old leg injury, and Sonia's appealing eyes, keep him in town Sonia Randolph is the beautiful youngest child of minor gentry. But an old leg injury, and Sonia's appealing eyes, keep him in town longer than he intended Sonia and Darius are each charming, likable main characters. They face actual conflict, but each behave like sensible human adults instead of losing their heads. I almost rated this lower because I thought that telling the whole story through Sonia's dog was clunkily done, but Mar 06, Kathleen rated it really liked it Shelves: animals , regency , humorous , romance-historic.
Love dogs, wounded soldiers, and maligned heroes?
How about a strong heroine and an entertaining cast of secondary characters? Like humor and witty dialogue, but not too much nonsense? Most of all, want to see the wrong made right for a hard-pressed hero? Then you might like this. Despite the doggy POV. It was okay, but a historical romance with a dog narrator who philosophizes against the existence of God is too much for me.

I skipped those sections for a while, but they did eventually grow on me. The heroine is very young and beautiful and rich and defies convention right and left, but the ton adores her anyway. The hero is a w 2.
A Loyal Companion
The hero is a wounded soldier accompanied by a loyal familiar batman with a scandalous reputation but a heart of gold, who has just unexpectedly inherited a title. I rather prefer to watch disinterested, if not downright hostile, parties actually fall in love over the course of a novel. I know, those are routine for these romances, but I find them really annoying.

Sonia was going to pick her own spouse, not get matched up with some high toned gentleman who wanted her money. She was going to marry for love. However, that was never going to happen if her grandmother had anything to say about it… This book is set in Victorian times, when the ton could make or break any member of society.
She was just like me and her antics and softly spoken snide comments made me grin. When Sonia let his prize dog out during heat and the prize dog from the farm next door impregnated her, he was furious. But Sonia saved the puppies from death and even claimed one for her own. Here's where the book gets really good: The new puppy, Fitz, has his own contribution to the story.
Have you ever read a book where an animal tells the tale? Fitz tells you about how a dog views life and how silly humans are. With all that goes on in this story, you almost have to agree with him. The author introduces Sonia to a wounded war veteran that has been slandered and is scorned by the ton.
She then takes her main character through a variety of attempts to help clear his name. Amusing and heart-warming, this tale grabbed me. In fact, I liked this story so much I have purchased a copy for my library.
Any story that leaves me with a big smile on my face is a winner in my book. Jan 11, Annette rated it it was amazing. I received this book from the publisher on the understanding I would give a fair and honest review.

He is going to inherit an Earldom because of the death of his elder brother. He would rather be in the country.

Sunny and Darius share a similarity of character and interests. They both love the 3 little girls who Darius is raising since the death of his brother and his sister-in-law. They both laugh together and that helps them fall in love with one another. Barbara Metzger is a wonderful writer. She has developed a good plot that is developed along the line of a mystery as well as a romance. He is wise beyond his years and very involved in making sure that the lives of the people he loves go in the correct direction. Fitz is capable of solving nearly any problem.
His life was saved by Sunny when she was a child and later on his life was saved by Darius.

He takes charge and things work out eventually just as they should. The main characters in this book are people who are interesting and entertaining.
The secondary characters add to the atmosphere and help move the story along. This is a terrific book and I hope you enjoy it as much as I have. Feb 07, M. This was adorable and managed to take a unique approach to historical romances. While most of the book is told in third-person, it does begin and end each chapter with an unusual first-person narrative from the heroine's dog. That sounds strange, but it was actually quite well done and interesting. The dog plays a role throughout the book as a substantial side-character and has quite a hand paw?
I was quite skeptical about it when I first got into the book, This was adorable and managed to take a unique approach to historical romances. I was quite skeptical about it when I first got into the book, but it was so entertaining and well written that I positively enjoyed it. There is a quality to the writing in this story that is very engaging.
The whole first chapter explains how the heroine and got her dog and his background and I found myself wondering what the point of the rambling exposition was, but mostly I was enchanted by the writing and enjoyed it too much to care about where the story was headed. It's hard to explain what it was that was so wonderful about the writing, but it really grabbed my attention and held it. I loved the characters. They weren't as well-rounded as I usually like to see, but they were so likable that I just found myself engaged in their story.
This is a quirky book and I would have given it 5 stars, but it did resort to a melodramatic twist that was a bit incongruous with the rest of the story a kidnapping? I love a good bit of melodrama, but the story was so well done that the over-the-top ending was a little disappointing. It didn't ruin the story, but it just left me wishing the author hadn't resorted to it. Feb 28, Noelia rated it really liked it. Enjoyed this story.
Loved Hero and heroine.

Overall not as funny as I had expected. Maybe a tad bit too much dog narration for me. Dec 05, Katie rated it it was amazing.
