There was only one review on the Amazon system when I bought this book and there is still only one so I decided to add my evaluation. I do not give out 5 star ratings lightly. I am hard to please as a reader, perhaps sometimes too much so. But the point is that I pay money for the privilege of reading a romance novel and I much prefer that the author give me something worth my money. Kate Huntington has done just that.

I really like the plot of this book. Christopher has spent eleven years in a succession of French prisons because no ransome was ever demanded for his release and his grandfather had received information that Christopher and his tutor had died at the hands of the French. Without knowing this, Christopher had erroneously thought that perhaps his grandfather had chosen not to pay for his release. When he returns to England he is, naturally, a very different person. Not being willing to fall in with the wish that he marry Cassandra he rides off to London to enjoy life for a while before looking for a woman to be his wife. Cassandra is not in the picture as far as he is concerned. So who does he meet up with almost instantly? The widow Caroline Benningham of course, portrayed as "the other woman" so very well by this author.

Cassandra really got on my nerves for a while with her constant whining about being expected to marry Christopher. Once she and her guardian got to London she wasted no time in looking around for a suitable match. She had been denied her London season several years ago and she meant to make the most of her time now. She quickly became the object of interest for Lord Whitby, the answer to any maiden's prayer. A titled gentleman from a very wealthy family. Could Cassandra be any happier? Well, actually, yes. Maidens need to look very closely at men who seem to be too good to be true.

I liked watching Christopher and Cassandra find their true feelings for each other. I always liked Christopher more but Cassandra began to be a likeable character before the midway point in the book so I have no complaints about her. A nice little twist in the plot kept things moving right along. All in all, an enjoyable read which I would recommend.

With "Town Bronze," Kate Huntington (again) shows how adept she is in taking a much used and very basic storyline and turning it into a very amusing and charming Regency-era romance novel.
Ever since they were children, everyone has expected Christopher Warrender and Cassandra Davies to make a match of it. At least that has always been Lord Adderly, Christopher's grandfather's, plan. (Lord Adderly is also Cassandra's guardian.) And the very fact that both Christopher and Cassandra get on like oil and water, has not caused the old man to rethink his grand plan one bit over the years. Nor has he ever considered the notion that either Christopher or Cassandra may have dreams or desires of their own. So that even when Christopher was taken prisoner by the French while he was on the Grand Tour and was thought to be died in one of their prisons, the old man kept Cassandra (who had always cherished dreams of having a London Season and living in the city) firmly ensconced in the country.
Now, however, it looks as if news of Christopher's death may have been premature. For with Bonaparte's final defeat has come the realization that Christopher has spent the past 11 years being moved from one French jail to another. Lord Adderly is ecstatic: at last his dreams of marrying Christopher and Cassandra off to each other are coming true. But Cassandra is livid: now she will have to marry spotty, chubby and fatuous Christopher after all. What neither expected was that Christopher would put his foot down and refuse to marry Cassandra, and that he would take off for London in order to have some fun and acquire some "town bronze." And the last thing Christopher expected was for Lord Adderly (with Cassandra in tow) to give chase after him.
It is still Lord Adderly's hope that the pair will make a match of it, even if it is fast becoming a dwindling one. For Christopher and Cassandra are soon happily sampling the many entertainments and diversions that the city has to offer and making new friends. It doesn't take Christopher long, however, to realise that he is actually very much in love with Cassandra. Unfortunately Cassandra has other ideas, and seems to have fallen for a handsome titled lord. What will Christopher do? Try to win Cassandra's heart? Or try to help her achieve exactly what (and who) she desires?
"Town Bronze" was a rather fun read. Christopher Warrender was my kind of romance hero -- intelligent, charming, funny and masculine without being the type of alpha-male that many sensible women would just long to hurl bricks at! Cassandra, on the other hand, took a little longer to warm to. But this was mainly because she did not come across very well in the first few chapters -- ranting (and sulking) at a man who had just come home from hell as if it was all his fault that she had to marry him! Fortunately, the authour rehabilitates Cassandra fairly early on in the novel so that I was able to settle into liking this romantic pair and rooting for their happily-ever-after ending. I liked the manner in which Kate Huntington depicted the relationship that Christopher and Cassandra have, as well how she portrayed the deepening of this friendship, and how it blossomed into love. And I liked all the different kinds of gambits/obstacles that she threw at the pair so that I actually began to question if and when Christopher and Cassandra would find their way to each other. Also nicely done were the characterisations of the "other" woman and gentleman in this story: Mrs. Caroline Bellingham, a beautiful and fast widow that Christopher finds himself attracted to, and Lord Whitby, the handsome gentleman-about-town that Cassandra falls for. All in all, even though much of this novel was quite formulaic, there was much to appreciate and enjoy in "Town Bronze." A truly fun read.

Description from the book back cover:

AN INCONVENIENT ENGAGEMENT: If life were fair, beautiful Cassandra would be on her way to enjoying her first London Season instead of having an awkward breakfast with the man she was promised to long ago. Christopher Warrender's years as a prisoner of war in France have done nothing for his table manners, though they have given him a bold, defiant spirit that Cassandra finds oddly compelling. In fact, she doesn't know whether to feel relief or indignation when he angrily informs her that he has no intention of leaving one prison only to be trapped in a loveless marriage. She is free to pursue her Season in London while he in turn will entertain himself with a bevy of society beauties ... A TIMELY GAME OF LOVE: Christopher has been accused of many things, but failing to expire at his fiancee's convenience truly nips at his pride. He understands what it is to be held hostage, and he has no desire to keep Cassandra from finding true happiness with some perfectly faultless gentleman, even if he has to run away to London to free her. He never expects her to follow, or for her beauty and charm to capture his heart. And when Cassandra falls for a fortune-hunting cad, the only way Christopher can possibly save her from a disastrous mistake is to insist on his right to marry her first ...
