    3. Hold on a minute! Bridget and Val?? Ring any bells? As in Elizabeth Hoyt shaped-bells? Specifically Duke of Sin shaped bells?Full disclosure - I haven't read this book, but wanted to note the er copycat similarities.

    4. After every Christi Caldwell book I think, “Oooh! This one is my favorite!” And then she writes another one that totally blows me away. Like all her previous stories, Beguiled By A Baron left me breathless, agonizing (in a good way), and entranced. And, as with all her books, I enjoyed a huge happy sigh at the end. Bridget Hamilton had spent her life cast out by her family. Her partial deafness and the birthmark marring her face had marked her as unworthy of the Hamilton name. She lived in [...]

    5. Beguiled by a Baron ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ written by Christi CaldwellIn this book, we meet Bridget Hamilton. Ms Hamilton has been the victim of ridicule all her life. She is partially deaf in her left ear and bears a large crescent birthmark on her left cheek. In 1820, any deformity was looked upon cruelly and the person with the deformity was hidden away. This was the life Bridgett lived. Her brother then cast aside his by blow and Bridget at 17 became the child's mother. Her brother A [...]

    6. 4.5*I love Christi Caldwells books and this one did not disappoint. Two people shunned by society and family meet under the guise of duplicity.

    8. I have read the whole Heart of a Duke series and have noticed an amazing growth in the character development over the course of the series. What started out as a light-hearted series of young ladies looking for true love has morphed into deep thought provoking stories of wounded people who overcome their problems and situations to find the love and family they need. If you are unfamiliar with Christi Caldwell's work this series is a MUST READ!In this case, Vail, Lord Basingstoke - the Bastard Ba [...]

    9. There is nothing that makes me happier then reading a Christi Caldwell book. Her stories pull you from page one and are written with such emotional depth and heart that you can't but help love her heroine and hero. Christi writes such endearing characters. Men and Women who have been scorned, shunned or ignored by their society or world for a perceived flaw that makes them unworthy. This makes her characters relatable because we all at some point have felt like we just don't belong or are not go [...]

    10. Another Excellent Read!The Heart of a Duke series is one of the best series to read in this genre. Each time I read one of these stories, I end by saying it's my favorite! Beguiled by A Baron is no exception and my most recent favorite by Christi Caldwell. Bridget Hamilton is a woman who has been taught by her family that she is worthless. Years of abuse and neglect by them for her physical imperfections should have made her as crazy and mean as they are. But she is a caring woman who just wants [...]

    11. A heroine worthy of a happily ever after!I so loved this book! This story of Bridget, born less than perfect in the eyes of her wealthy parents, her life is as a result, very "un": unfair, unhappy, unpromising. She is relegated to a life in the country alone, away from a family who abandons her with her nursemaid. But this "un" compromising, undaunted, and unflagging young woman makes her own life and family and supports herself using her mind. But there is a conflict with a family member who ju [...]

    12. I love Ms. Caldwell's Heart of a Duke series. This one is another WINNER by Ms. Caldwell. Beguiled by a Baron is #14 in her HOAD series. Ms. Caldwell again had me on an emotional roller coaster with Vail and Bridget. I sympathized with both Vail and Bridget. I got teary more than once. Which is normal for me with a Christi Caldwell book. I have a new 'Regency' book boyfriend in Vail Basingstoke. I loved how smart he was. He seemed to be a Regency version of a HOT nerd. Which are my favorite kind [...]

    13. Another magical book by Christi Caldwell. From the first words, I felt myself wanted to wrap protective arms around Bridget and Virgil and never let any harm come to them. Bridget is a strong, smart and talented heroine. She is beautiful, inside and out.Vail has a purpose in life. He works to build his fortune so he can do good and provide better lives for his family. Both are wounded in matters of the heart, yet, love always finds a way.Once started, I could not stop flipping the pages. I actua [...]

    15. This book was so beautiful! Bridget must make decisions that no matter what she does will leave destruction in her wake. Vail has been so focused in taking care of everyone that he refuses to open himself up to love. The story was a complex, beautiful study in the perspective of how you view life and all it's decisions. Each character was so well written with their emotional depth you couldn't help but connect to their internal struggles. The plot was so intense you were definitely left holding [...]

    16. Desperation makes people do desperate things.Bridget was an outcast in her own family. They turned their backs on her due to a birthmark on her face and lack of hearing. None of which was Bridget's fault.Bridget has made a meager living examining antiquated texts. Which just sounds super fun. I love books. She is my kind of gal!Her vile brother basically blackmails Bridget into stealing a valuable book from Baron Chilton. Her brother's threats put Bridget in an impossible position.The decision b [...]

    17. THE TENSEST SO FAR!There has always been an element of suspense in Christi Caldwell's books - will love come right, will the evil person get their comeuppance, how can a seemingly evil person (say, the Marquis of Rutland) be redeemed. This time, the suspense rather overshadowed the love story for me. The characters were, perhaps, stronger than usual. The evil brother - has no redeeming features. The task at hand is destroying the heroine, who is more crippled than usual (at least in her mind). T [...]

    18. Love It!This is a fabulous journey of a young ladies life. Being shuttered off to a cottage on her parents property, the four year old daughter of a Marguis, to live the rest of her life dead to society, because she is not perfect! A birthmark on her face, and hard of hearing. What possible use is she? Baron Chilton, bastard son of a Duke , and a whore. Vail grows into a wealthy business man, buying and selling priceless books, only he is nobody's fool! He lives to make more, and more money! Wha [...]

    19. This story had such strong characters in Vail and Bridget. Vail was all you would want in a hero, strong, noble and such a caring nature towards his siblings. Bridget, in spite of her dreadful family is also a caring and loving person. She is placed in an impossible situation by her despicable brother. Oh, how I hoped for her to have a happy solution. It was obvious how much research the author done into rare books and this enhanced the storyline. This was quite an emotional read at times but on [...]

    20. All I can say is Wow!Christi Caldwell had me from the first page. Bridgett, desperate not to lose her son, goes to work as a housekeeper to still an original Chaucer from Vail, Baron Chilton . She knows that her' s and the life of her son depends on this one act of deception. What she didn't plan on is a man like Vail. We all know where this is going to but the twist and turns to get there are engaging and at times frustrating but it is well worth the ride.

    21. Lies She's blackmailed by her crook of a brother to steal theirs edition of Chaucer in order to keep her son. He's a Baron who's a book collector/seller who's made a fortune in securing rare editions and selling them to collectors. How Christi Caldwell brings these two together is a journey through lies, deceit and secrets and a happily ever after! Another winner!!!

    22. Threads we weave!Ms Caldwell has added another thread to her tapertry of characters. Virgil was a wonderful touch to the story. Children quite often see the true character of an adult and for once we get to see an adult listen and act on a child's information. I love this story but so many of the previous thirteen novels were just as good.

    23. A loverly story A young Lady who is partially deaf and has a birthmark on her cheek is threatened by her brother. If she does not steal a certain book for him he will have her committed.

    24. Another story to make you smile!I'm not sure how Christi Caldwell had so many stories running around in her head! Yet each one is different! They all carry the same thing, however. Love and family are everything! Vail and Bridget's story will stay with me for awhile. Well done.

    25. This was perfect!!!You couldn't ask for a better story! I always liked the imperfect and this one was just it! To be deaf in one ear have a birthmark on her cheek but she was still beautiful and he saw how could you not love this book! This is an awesome author!

    26. Another brilliant book in this series! I like the plot of this one and I'd love to have all that knowledge of books. Chilton is the stuff of dreams! This book makes me want to re-read the 13 books that came before it!

    27. Intriguing StorylineBringing a. Baron with a colorful past and present and a deaf woman with a birthmark on her face together is brilliant . Ythl

    28. Bridget Hamilton has lived her life in quiet solitude with a son, his nanny and her beloved books; which having been ridiculed as deformed and deemed worthless by her family that is the way she prefers it. Until the day her despised brother arrives and threatens everything she holds dear. She will do anything to save her son even if it means going against everything she believes.
