    3. I read the sample chapters to this book, first time reading this author, and I was hooked For once, the cover didn t grab my attention, and from the way that Luca towered over Patience the cover doesn t do the story justice I read this book in two sittings, I tried for one sitting but it kept me up WAY past my bedtime so I had to put it down The very next day I picked it up though and HAD to see what happened next.I have to be careful with romance novels because some books look innocent and then [...]

    7. This book is like a delight Having not read a good romance about a gypsy, this definitely was an amazing introduction The depth that love can lead one to is rare and well shown in this novel I have been introduced to this author s books this week and gladly so as this was the second book and every book so far seems like it would also make a great movie This is a very talented author with amazing reads

    8. Luca Boldor is a man stuck between two worlds Luca has rejected his English heritage after what he believes is his father s abandonment but, while the gypsy band of his mother s family has for all intents and purposes made him their leader, the elders are always suspicious of his half English heritage Recently widowed, Lady Patience Blackwell has trouble trusting men after years of abuse at the hands of her husband Even though the marriage contract was written to provide her with a comfortable l [...]

    9. This was a good read with an original plot Patience is a non grieving widow who is dealing with her new situation, though she gives off the feeling of the situation being much older than six weeks Luca is a gypsy lord, angry at his half English heritage and unwilling to depend on anyone Their characters, though interesting, seem a bit inconsistent While their overall goals and desires seem fairly explicit, their actions are very contrary with no ease of transition Their romance is good, but I fe [...]

    10. A romance with a Regency flavor, this novel introduces a contemporary theme with an historical flavor Countess Patience, now a widow and threatened by a malevolent stepson, rescues an injured gypsy leader Over the time she treats Luca, each has an increasing attraction to the other, yet their different cultures seem to destine them to be apart The plot is complicated by her strong Christian beliefs, which he denies Over a period of months as his injuries fail to heal and she faces threats from s [...]

    11. The Gypsy hero was a new one for me and I liked him very much I liked the heroine even better She was consistent and brave I did have some trouble with the hero trying to live in two worlds and was never clear on his childhood It was also difficult for me to believe his injuries would take so long to heal and that his people would continue to follow him when he was gone so long and so physically handicapped Nevertheless, the story was well enough told that I enjoyed the read.

    12. If ever there were two people who are so different, yet so alike, it would be Patience and Luca The author writes with skill and passion Part heartbreak, part heartwarming, I devoured Seeking Patience Fine job, Ms Rivera

    13. This book was a satisfying read I found myself considering the often overlooked or vilified Roma people in regency novels Rarely have I read about gypsies being heroes in a novel Patience and Luca provide a compelling story that is almost too painful to read, yet I couldn t put the book down.

    14. Great read I loved reading and listening to the audio of this romance book And although I had never read a book by this author before, I really liked the book and I look forward to reading books from her and maybe finding out what happend in lucas twin brother s life and with lucas new family.

    15. I enjoyed reading Seeking Patience, and it was an easy, quick read I read all types of books, some long, complicated, and very deep in character and plot This book and its characters are very simple, sweet, and easy to follow When reading a book that takes place in a different time, I imagine myself in the story as the character, in this case, Patience I can only HOPE that I would be as sweet and strong as Patience was She was 21 years old, widowed, and had endured some painful and brutal things [...]

    16. Note I was given a complimentary copy for an honest review.This is a story with a lot of layers From the very first chapter, I was drawn into the story It s a story of opposites, yet similarities Of people who have been hurt and seeking something to heal that hurt Of people who are full of anger and revenge and those who forgive and love Of those who protect, yet also need protection Of one particular person who shifts from anger and revenge to forgiveness and love Luca Boldor is a man without a [...]

    17. Lady Patience is a widow who is scraping by on her measly allowance given to her by her cruel husband s even crueler heir, who also happens to be her stepson Yet, she somehow manages to run her estate as well as can be expected It isn t without its stresses though as her stepson watches her relentlessly, waiting for her to make a mistake so he can use it against her So when a handsome gypsy lands at her doorstep, broken and bleeding, she must make a choice Does she help the Gypsy man and face th [...]

    19. What a treat this book turned out to be This is a new to me author and I will most definitely read her books again I haven t read a book with a character that was a Gypsy so this was very interesting to me If you would have asked me before reading this book if I were interested in reading a Gypsy book , I would have said no but now I know better This book was fascinating Maybe the author s writing had something to do with it Her writing was very good and I enjoyed the characters and storyline ve [...]

    20. A great and yet modest love story between an unlikely pair Intelligent witty and filled with vivid imagery which entwine with the narrative, enhancing the visual quality of the story The story engages all the senses and often reflects on taste and texture Seasonal and atmospheric the setting played well into the romance I liked the characters and they grew well The reference of the Romani culture and its details were accurate and did not reflect any of the romantic cliche often used when depicti [...]

    21. I rec d this book as an ARC I ve not read any books by Josie Riviera before, but after this one, I ll definitely track down other books Half Romany, half English, Lord Luca Bolder lives as a Gypsy Lady Patience Blakewell, widow, lives under her cruel husbands roof, but is basically being held hostage by her step son, who feels she killed his father How do their paths cross, do tgey fall in love or hurt each other How will they both come out on top, or will the sink.

    22. Luca Bolder who is 1 2 gypsy and half English blood is an outcast He is seriously injured and seeks refuge at Lady Patience Blackwell a widow from a cruel husband she despised and left her with a puny allowance and an even meaner stepson who is trying to pin a murder charge on her So does Lady patience take in Luca or turn him away Read the story to see how it all turns out A very surprised ending too.

    23. There was one instance of blasphemy, which I didn t appreciate, but on the whole I really enjoyed this story of a widowed Countess and a Romany Gypsy, set in a very familiar county to me It made me smile to read of Portman s Field, as I think that s probably today where Ipswich Town s Football Team play.

    24. I am happy that I won a copy of Seeking Patience in a Good Reads giveaway I have a tendency to read the same type of books and might have overlooked this one I was drawn in to this story from the very beginning and did not want to put it down It was not predictable and I was pleased with how the story ended I look forward to reading stories by Josie Riviera
