    There’s a few things I can always count on when it comes to a Elisabeth Fairchild novels their always character driven while not seen so much now of days her characters are strong enough to pull it off Another is not only her way with words but her deep story she lays out for the reader In Counterfeit Coachman EF shows how the characters deal with their lost of fortune to the responsibility that comes with it To being rich in wealth and being rich in love Beauford and Nell share a common sad bond of the recent lost of their fathers whom meant so much in their lives While on one side Beau feels the weight of his new fortune and title with his stutter that turns women away or to pity him while his wealth draws them near Beau doesn’t want to just be judge on his status so in a sudden idea he decides to get away by becoming a common coachman this has it’s advantages and disadvantages One that instead of turning Beau off makes him learn from The good that can come from wealth and doing right by it but that not everyone will judge him by just his wealth but by the great man he is Beau is my type of hero whom I just love he has a great strength within him but also a great kindness that almost feels like poetry in motion when he falls in love Nell on the other side is dealing with the great lost of wealth after her father’s death and having her sisters and mother to take care of Nell truly believe in love but at the same time is dealing with being let down by her father whom said he would take care of his family and that she may have to marry up then marry for love She’s caught in this web when she starts to fall in love with Beau whom she thinks is just a common coachman She loves Beau for himself but because she has her family to think of knows she can’t be with him Nell had a lot of heart had a uick wit but felt had a responsibility to her family then to her heart Which I felt was on the mark due to the period of history While Nell’s character did waver a tad toward the middle of the book it was just another side the reader was given as she has to fight a lot of feelings between her heart and her head The interactions even when there wasn’t much to say really spoke volumes of how each of the characters were dealing with their new found love for one another It also showed how strong each character felt about their said love when Nell finding the truth while hurt didn’t just fall into Beau’s lap She felt hurt by being lied to but also felt she be a hypocrite because of the choice she made I wanted to shake her as she moped around but knew deep down I do the same thing Would I be any better going back on my word because things would be different for me? More Money? No I couldn’t fault Nell for her choice But at the same time she needed her own time and a little push for her to see it wasn’t about riches but about whom the person you love that matter I’ve always found character whom stutter very endearing to me as a reader but I noticed that others author always seems to have a magical cure all for the character as the story goes on There is no such cure all for Beau he still stutters but I never just saw his stutter but saw him which in the end made me love him all the and giving the reader a realist feel to this already great book EF has a way with her characters that they can not only show great strengths and weakness much relate to the reader it many ways

    45 starsThis was one of those books that deserves a round of “awwwwww” when it’s finished because it’s just so lovely Elisabeth Fairchild is one of those writers who can deliver on all counts – a good story well rounded characters and an emotionally satisfying romance – and maintain the reader’s interest without resorting to sensationalism or melodramaOn her way to Brighton with her aunt and younger sister Nell uinby is saved from an accident by the uick thinking and actions of a young coachman named Beau FerdNell feels an instant attraction to Beau who while not being devastatingly handsome as are so many romantic heroes has a kind face a beautiful smile and a thoroughly engaging manner He also speaks with a stammer which she can see embarrasses himBut as per the title this coachman is a counterfeit Beau Ferd is in actuality Lord Brampton Beauford fifth Duke of Heste Having acceded to the title upon the death of his father a year previously he is having trouble adjusting to the weight of his new responsibilities as well as grieving for the parent he has lost He is also weary of the young ladies of the ton who are continually throwing themselves at his wealth and title He knows that most of them ridicule or pity him for his speech impediment behind his back and he wants to get away from society for a while What he really wants is to find someone who will love him for himself rather than what he hasNell has also lost her father but unlike Beau who has inherited a great fortune Nell has inherited debts and a family her mother and sisters to care for Nell’s sister Aurora is a great beauty and her mother has hopes of her making a great match having planned to introduce her to none other than the ridiculously wealthy Duke of Heste who has mysteriously disappeared from LondonAs Beau and Nell become closer he begins to feel guilty at keeping his true identity a secret while Nell knows she could never be with him because of the necessity of providing for her family by marrying well She loves Beau for his kindness and generosity but he’s a coachman and while he may be able to support a wife in simple style she is unwilling to burden him with the care of her mother and sisters tooThe couple might never progress beyond a kiss on the page but there is no less emotional depth on display than in many a recently written book in which the bedroom door is left open; in fact I’d say that the romantic tension in this story runs just as high from the start as Nell is as much struck by Beau’s gentleness as she is by the beauty of his eyes and smile while he is confounded by the sudden pull he feels towards this attractive and lively young womanIf there was a false note in the novel it came near the end and was specifically to do with Nell’s treatment of Beau when she discovered the truth I could understand her fighting her attraction to him when she thought him a coachman because of her own impecunious circumstances but I couldn’t like the way she behaved towards him once she found out that he was in fact a Duke I have no problem with the fact that she felt hurt and betrayed and wanted some time alone to lick her wound but I thought she carried things too far I’ve read many a book where I’ve felt that perhaps the heroine should have made the hero grovel a bit because of some of the things he’s done andor the hurt he’s caused her But here poor Beau is put through the wringer for very little reason – in fact he didn’t deliberately set out to deceive Nell it was a misunderstanding that just sort of happened and she is so preoccupied with her own feelings that she doesn’t spare a thought to how he must be feeling or give him the opportunity to explain because she flat out refuses to see himIt takes a while but Nell does eventually begin to see the obvious – that despite the deception for a man in Beau’s position to have persevered without encouragement for so long he must really love her; and also to realise her own duplicity in pretending not to care for a man with whom she is actually deeply in love Fortunately Nell comes to this realisation in time to set things to rights and all ends well The Counterfeit Coachman is a beautifully written character driven romance featuring one of the sweetest heroes I’ve ever come across Beau’s generosity of spirit his gentleness and his strength of character shine throughout and even though I’m not uite sure Nell really deserved him I was happy to see him get the girl in the end

    Sweet romanceThe story is all sweet and heartwarming The H sounds sweet kind and very likeable So does the h except when she carries her anger and hurt for ridiculously far too long That puts uite a damper to an otherwise a very satisfactory end of a sweet romance


  4. Mary - Buried Under Romance Mary - Buried Under Romance says:

    455 starsThis is a wonderful read with perhaps the most amazing hero I have ever read Lord Beauford is a heartwarming thoughtful character with almost no visible vices As it was mentioned in the book and revealed by his own actions he has none of the traits that define most regency heroes of the time with a preoccupation for kindness that seems to seep out of his soul This story is very much character driven as there were no big misunderstanding hidden secret or even a villain just two people learning to fall in love What didn't work for me was the heroine unfortunately who I have found to be too much of a hypocrite Her behavior at times seems shocking for a young lady so preoccupied with propriety such as her episode at the beach Yet she is very much self aware of her charms and the visible effect she has on Beau Despite how she seemed to be attracted to Beau at first sight she kept on urging him on his suit knowing well some of his feelings and then pushing him away This is uite torturous for poor Beau Further she mentions many times to want to solve the mystery that was Beau yet when she noticed all the pieces around Beau she could not put two and two together when it was painfully obvious who Beau is? I find that to be disconnected from what was said of her person Further even after she read all of Beau's letters of love asking for forgiveness and thought that she could not stop loving him she pushes him away again After all that Beau had done for her; purchasing Boots accompanying her as a footman and helping her many times always being kind to her and even groveling to her when his station is so much higher than hers; Beau had discarded his station for love yet she in all her appearances to be a nonjudgmental person could not see beyond her own hurt feelings at the conflicted attraction she felt towards Beau to see his own reasons for masuerading For it was clear to everyone near Beau only a besotted man would ever go so far to ingratiate himself to woo a lady It seemed very unfair for Beau to suffer most of the uncertainty in not knowing whether he will ever be loved for himself and his wish to just keep living a happy existence with Nell who in my opinion seemed to hold only a fraction of the love Beau had for her I would have rated this book 5 stars if not for the character of the heroine so does not deserve a man as wonderful as Beau


  5. Nancy Nancy says:

    Favorite uote from this book Not physical beauty which suffers under the hands of time but a beauty of m mind and spirit that grows and matures with the passing of the years Hmmmmsomething to strive for in my own personal attributes??Though the plot was predictablethe story was still heartwarming


  6. Julie Julie says:

    I really enjoyed this one We cleaned out books from Edgar's grandmother's last summer and only found a hand full of Regency novels Turns out she only saved the good ones so I'm winning


  7. Karen Wilson Karen Wilson says:

    This is a short read so I'm glad the author did not put so much plot side arcs to resolve by the end of the book Of course that also means that it's very straightforward and there wasn't as much characterrelationship development as I'd like Aside from all the funny subterfuge Beauford did there's not much else to the story that's impactful or exceptionally memorable Don't misunderstand I LOVE the whole subterfuge bit It's exactly what I was looking for when reading Man of My Dreams or Mad about the Duke But I'd like than thatWe only get to see Beauford and Nell for a period of a few weeks? and so I am curious about the different aspects of their lives and how they would respondreact and grow to it together For example One Perfect Rose I was also a bit irked by the constant my lord or Lord as most other historical novels refers to a duke as His GraceI am not particularly fond of all the grovelling Beauford had to do and still he wasn't able to mollify Nell It seemed excessive but perhaps she's the type that reacts badly to over eagerness and needed space which she wasn't getting with his constant grovellingOne particularly uniue thing about the book is the part where Beauford is having trouble filling into his new role; recognizing the weight of responsibility without the cynicism Most historical romances with a Duke as the hero displays an authoritative persona


  8. Alice Alice says:

    Eminently Re readableA newly minted Duke decides to chuck his responsibilities for a few days and avoid his sister's matchmaking by disguising himself as a coachman and driving the royal mail coach as a lark There he meets the sister of the woman he was avoiding and becomes enad Unfortunately he continues to be entangled in the false identity and lies as he surreptitiously attempts to court her A very sweet romance the slow buildup of feelings and admiration between the two is delightful Yet lurking is the revelation of his false identity which you know won't be good I've just re read this story for the third time as Elizabeth Fairchild just added the 4th book to her Sweet Regency Romance Series A Fresh Perspective and I am reading the prior three


  9. Wendy Sparrow Wendy Sparrow says:

    This might have been interesting solely for the info on the setting of Bath but the author didn’t lay groundwork for some info and I felt confused but the damning problem was she was a huge jerk after the big reveal Hero is a duke who decides to pretend to be a royal mail coachman and flirts with one of the passengers and eventually become her private coachman It could have been good I wanted it to be goodbut the heroine was just a brat


  10. Hopefulpuffin Hopefulpuffin says:

    This was a sweet story with a great Beta in the disguised duke I do love a good Beta No great angst but some interesting thoughts on the responsibilities and privileges that wealth brings
