Ten Lords a’Leaping — a quiz.

Anne here, and because it's the tenth day of Christmas, the phrase "ten lords a'leaping" came to mind.
1QuadrilleAlmacks And since it's a new year, I thought I'd try something a little bit different. So here, in the spirit of indoor games at holiday time, is a quiz about heroes who are lords (or dukes or marquesses or earls or barons, or perhaps even the sons of lords.) Unfortunately the technology I tried to use didn't work properly, so you'll have to write down your answers and check them on a different page. Nevertheless, I hope you enjoy it.

    a) Lord Bromford in THE GRAND SOPHY

5) Which badly behaved, ugly and dissipated lord was tamed by a fiery heroine?

  1. I read every one of these books, each is a favorite author. I still missed about 4. Didn’t disappoint me just reminded me it was time for a reread. What a Pleasure it will be to delve into a loved book, Thank You for the quiz. Re-delving (probably not a word LOL but it should be)will lead to rereading the entire series. I know, I know, I am the bain of my favorite authors.

  6. Peggy, don’t apologize — making up the quiz had the same effect on me. I’ve now got a pile of old favorites sitting beside my bed,w aiting for the umpteenth re-read. I could easily have extended it to twenty lords or more — I had to miss out on heaps of my faves.
    Glad you enjoyed it.

  11. I got all of them except the Julie Garwood one, since I’ve never read any of her books.
    Actually, I haven’t read the ones by Johanna Lindsay or Elizabeth Lowell, either. But the Lindsay one I’ve seen discussed a number of times, and I’ve read the wrong answers for Lowell, so I still got them right

  16. I only got 7 out of 10, but that was in spite of having read only 3 of the books in the group. I have no idea how that happened. Fun quiz, thank you.

  21. Margot, they’re oldies, but goodies — worth reading, I think.
    Janice, I deliberately mixed golden oldies with some more recent gems. But I think some good deductive work was going on to get 7/10 when you’d only read 3 of the books.

    Great fun, Anne! Missing Lords??? The only one I can think of is Devil Cynster, one of the very first rakish Lords I ever read and one I frequently return to 🙂

  31. Beebs, I love Devil’s Bride, too, and in fact I had a question about him, but when I was listing alternatives, I found it was too hard to come up with a definitive clue that applied to Devil and not the other Cynsters. In the end, I left him off the list and will save him for another day
    And I think you might enjoy Venetia. Damerel is a very fine rakish hero and the humor is delicious.

  36. What fun, Anne! I love book quizzes, and this one reminded me of many of my favorite romances. I got nine of the ten correct, not too shabby since I’ve never read the Elizabeth Lowells.
    I thought about additions, and the lord who came immediately to mind was Bey Malloren, Marquess of Rothgar. I recalled many other favorite heroes as well, a long list of lordly one but also a surprising number who aren’t lords.

  41. I only missed one, but I guessed at a couple of others. Some of the books were read long ago and I don’t remember characters names as well as I remember authors and titles. I enjoyed the quiz.

  46. Janga, yes, Rothgar is a superb hero, I agree. As I said, I had to miss out on heaps. The ones I chose were not so much the top ten as the ones I liked who I could think of a good quick question for — in 150 characters or less (which was the restriction of the software I was trying to use.)
    And yes, many great heroes aren’t lords at all.

  51. Beverley, you did very well — nobody has picked all ten yet. That surprises me — I didn’t think it would be as hard as it is, but I suppose the mix of golden oldies and recent gems makes it tough.
    Joanna, I hope you enjoy the authors you missed. Thanks for dropping by.
