    Too hideous for love.. Tragedy has left Lady Lydia disfigured and charged with the care of her younger brother and sister following the death of their parents. Until William is old enough to assume his duties as the Duke of Dorset, Lydia must learn to run the estate and handle the financial affairs. In only two years, she has changed from a beautiful though silly, thoughtless girl into a competent force to be reckoned with; socially and in business. She has resigned herself to spinsterhood knowin Too hideous for love.. Tragedy has left Lady Lydia disfigured and charged with the care of her younger brother and sister following the death of their parents. Until William is old enough to assume his duties as the Duke of Dorset, Lydia must learn to run the estate and handle the financial affairs. In only two years, she has changed from a beautiful though silly, thoughtless girl into a competent force to be reckoned with; socially and in business. She has resigned herself to spinsterhood knowing that no man can now look at her face without cringing. Lord Humphrey, Earl of Somerset, is home from his travels. At the insistence of his father, he has assumed his title. As a second son, Humphrey received no training from his father so if he wants to succeed in the handling of his estate and tenants he will need to find someone to teach him. When his friend, Lord James, relates how successful Lady Lydia has been in running the Dorset estate following the death of her parents he realizes that she may be the solution he is looking for. This is a beautiful romance about two people, each damaged in their own unique way, who are afraid to love. There was excellent interaction between the characters. Lord James is the type of personality you love to hate. Another excellent Fanny Finch historical romances.

    Good sappy romance So, this book was well-written and overall I enjoyed the read. However, I just could NOT like the main male character much. He was wimpy and honestly came across as a bit of a loser. He had no self-confidence and somehow just nothing to make me love him. Rather a disappointment. Especially in Victorian romances, I expect to read of a dashing very masculine character who, if anything, is a bit too self-confident and knows how to get what he wants. Sorry, this man was like a cudd Good sappy romance So, this book was well-written and overall I enjoyed the read. However, I just could NOT like the main male character much.

    Trust is necessary in the best relationships Humphrey had no trust even in himself, having been treated as less than worthy by his family. Lydia had trust in her business relationships but none in any man as they treated her as less than due to her scar. Both felt unloved and did not expect to find it for themselves. Their journeys to self acceptance and love were hard fought. Well written with relatable characters that made for a delightful story. Received ARC in return for this, my honest review Trust is necessary in the best relationships Humphrey had no trust even in himself, having been treated as less than worthy by his family.

    A very different twist for the Regency period, a strong intelligent young lady running a Dukedom for her younger brother. Not only running it, but having a reputation of running it well. The true Regency attitude shows itself in how she is treated as far as her looks are concerned. Lord Humphreys shows his true colors by his treatment of Lady Lydia. I enjoyed this book, it is full of humor, interesting characters and romance. Thank you, Fanny Finch.

    Wow…… ok. I love clean regency romance. I read a lot of them. This was one was of the lower par. What kind of author would make you give them your email in order to read an epilogue? I did like this story. The main character was strong and for the most part intelligent. The hero…. Weak. He kinda grew a backbone. but, not really. I didn’t get to read the epilogue so…. Who knows. It would take a lot for me to pick up another book by this author.

    A delightful and entertaining story with a twist This is another wonderfully gripping story, with a plot that is quite unique in its conception and full of emotional turmoil. The characters are portrayed beautifully with the strength and determination to overcome their Fears and detractors to achieve their happiness. The extended epilogue is a great devise that gives us an amazing glimpse into their future live and expectations. I read an ARC copy.

    Training Lord Somerset I read of peoples insecurities and wonder if I was ever like that. As an older more seasoned adult I can't imagine someone not speaking up for themselves and losing valuable time because of their doubts and fears yet I may have done the same thing at sometime but my confidence level has not been as low as this character's.

    From vain beauty to scarred overseer to a deep abiding love I enjoyed this one very much because I think most have a time in their life they feel the underdog. Few find true love. Highly recommended for all readers. Sweet, clean, and honestly told with great lessons to be learned.

    Lydia - strong young woman with lots of responsibilities Humphrey Earl - with no self confidence Lord James - love him or hate him, maybe both? This emotionally clean read has characters who come to life, you feel for them, and with them, you cheer for them, cry for them and jump for joy when the "villain" gets served. Some scars are on the outside, some carry them on the inside.

    Scars don’t hide beauty Ms Finch never disappoints… The story of Lydia and Humphrey is a beautiful telling of how great communication can be… one can overcome any obstacle when you have love and faith in each other.

    Lydia lost her parents and childhood on the same day. Humphrey gained his Earl's title as a young man; as a second son he was not trained for these duties. He needs someone to teach him which makes for good reading! 3 1/2 stars. Lydia lost her parents and childhood on the same day.

    A good book. Even though I was given a copy of this book by the author, it in no way influenced my opinion and this is my honest review.

    Two for One I am glad to have read "Training Lord Somerset" and "An Unexpected Love" by Fanny Finch at the same time. They are book ends to the same story and complete each other. Both follow the romantic life of one of two lovely sisters, Lydia and Angela. This was a great way to see how the author wrote the two books and made parts that were closely tied together make better sense than if I had read one and spent months before reading the other.
