    1. This is my first Chater. I liked the story, thought the characters were great, but if you are one of those people who would put down a book over a coincidence, you would put it down, and then miss the next two coincidences Too many. At least 3 big ones. I really liked the heroine, Griselda, except for her name. Who names a heroin Griselda? And all of a sudden, they call her Zelda at the end of the book, so I guess that saves it. Lots of plot, lots of shenanigans. I don't want to give away too mu [...]


    2. The Gamester by Elizabeth Chater is a clean Regency romance. It's the first book in the Elizabeth Chater Regency Romance Collection #2.Twenty-three-year-old Griselda Grant, known as "Zelda", is the wealthiest heiress in England. Since Zelda's deceased father was a merchant, Griselda is a cit, and isn't likely to be able to marry into the nobility, regardless of her extreme wealth. I loved Zelda's character!Griselda is the guardian of her younger brother, seventeen-year-old Sholto, who is very ir [...]


    3. Enjoyed this traditional regency romp about a young lady trying to preserve her family's honour while breaking into the minor nobility and an inveterate gamester living on the edge, with a colourful cast of characters. Black is black and white is white with nary a grey shade to be seen in the characters. The character of the weak feckless younger brother just didn't sit right - a person with almost no redeeming quality and no remorse or shame for his actions? Nevertheless in my quest for Georget [...]


    4. "The Gamester" is a wonderful, wonderful Regency Love Story. The main characters, Griselda Grant and Tim Fallon (Devil Fallon) are richly protrayed and reminscent of Rhett Butler and Scarlet O'Hara. The plot is filled with delightful suspense as the reader is invited to share the lives of a wealthy, beautiful and strong Griselda Grant and the attractive gamester, Devil Fallon. Even the supporting characters of faithful servants are richly drawn and enliven the unfolding drama. This one is a keep [...]


    5. I really enjoyed this book. The only problem is that I felt there were some things that were left unresolved, really I just wanted to see the heroine's brother get his ass handed to him, but I won't hold that against the author.


    6. Good book! I thought it was going to be a little cliché, but then it surprised me. Clean G-rated romance. Was left a little open ended with the villains, but in this case, I think it's alright. Happy ReadingFrankie
