Revue de presse

"Exceptionally entertaining...sinfully sexy."

-- Booklist

"London's love story is tense and tender, held aloft by endearing, dynamic characters."

-- Publishers Weekly on The Perils of Pursuing a Prince

Présentation de l'éditeur

William, the Viscount Summerfield, returning home from his worldly adventures, throws a month-long coming-out party for his sister at his Hertfordshire estate.
The shopkeeper presses Phoebe Fairchild, an aristocratic woman, to ask French seamstress Madame Dupree to take on the commission. But Phoebe is secretly Madame Dupree, and because of her position in society must hide her identity. The shopkeeper has long suspected Phoebe is actually Madame Dupree and blackmails Phoebe into fulfilling the obligation of gowns to Summerfield. Will is attracted to Phoebe's spirited, headstrong demeanour and Phoebe finds Will attractive and worldly. They begin to fall in love, but he pursues her only as a lover because he believes their stations in life prevent them from marrying. Then, at a grand ball Phoebe's deception is revealed in a very public, humiliating manner that forces her to flee back to London. Will she and Will find a way to reunite and fall in love all over again?

A little regency fun! 14 décembre 2007
Par J. Arena - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
If you are looking for a bit of fun with plot twists and a heroine thrown into impossible situations, then The Dangers of Deceiving a Viscount is definitely one to buy!

Phoebe is a "Desperate Dubutante" who was left penniless and needs to make some money. So, why not go out to make some by creating some gowns for the undeserving sisters of a Viscount. Of course, all the right people would frown on our heroine engaging in a trade. But, she needs the money. What to do? Go out in disguise as Mademe Dupree and, of course, complicate things by falling in love with the Viscount while living under outrageously awful circumstances.

I recommend this book highly as a fun bit of escapism sure to entertain!

major disappointment 12 novembre 2007
Par M. DETWILER - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I am giving this book 2 stars because I absolutely love Julia London's books. All of her books previous to this one have been keepers. This one won't be. I didn't like it--at all. First of all, it was boring. I started to read it, couldn't believe I didn't like it, put it down, picked it back up, and had to force myself to finish it. Not a good thing in a romance novel. I read Lisa Kleypas's newest and The Education of Mrs. Brimley both in one sitting. Couldn't put them down.

What I felt was lacking in this book were magnetic lead characters. Phoebe was just sort of bland and Will wasn't too likable. I really liked the previous 2 books in the Desperate Debutantes series. But, the idea of a lady masquerading as a servant, okay a seamstress, same thing, just didn't work. And, it went on right up to the end of the book. That means that the whole time they are playing around, the hero thinks she is a servant. That, to me, is not honorable and not the way a hero should behave.

Will's family was just positively horrendous. His sisters were awful and I couldn't stand them. I certainly have no wish to read any more of their exploits in future books. They were screeching shrews. And, his brother Joshua certainly doesn't have hero material written all over him. I found it hard to believe that this family could fall apart so quickly in Will's absence.

Anyway, for me, this book failed on several levels. I didn't like the premise of the heroine pretending to be a servant for so long into the story. I didn't like the fact that the hero seemed to be taking advantage of a servant while planning who he would marry. I didn't like the hero's family at all and, worst of all, the book was boring.

So, 2 stars for Julia London, because I know she can do better.

GREAT BOOK!! 29 octobre 2007
Par C. Hunt Smith - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
Great ending to The Desperate Debutantes trilog. Phoebe character was great and the Viscount of Summerland character wasn't too shabby either. Had a few tears in my eyes when Phoebe thought she had lost William. Enjoyed this book, as well as the other two, their on my book shelf to read again, another day. Thanks Julia for 3 great books.

A Sure Keeper! 28 octobre 2007
Par J. M. Crabdree - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Wow, I liked the first two quite a lot, but this one was Fabulous! I liked the characters, the story was good, and the H/H chemistry was really great. I like enough passion and humor mixed to make a great story, this book had that. I would have liked a little more info into his travels and a more in depth ending, but don't get me wrong, I Loved this book. The best I have read in a while.

Dangers of reading an irritating book . . . 11 novembre 2007
Par Constantreader - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
This book was a big disappointment. For one thing, nothing of interest happens romantically for more than half the book and what does happen is rather dull. For another,the premise is entirely unbelievable (an aristocrat with powerful connections being blackmailed by a seamstress into an untenable situation). The book had Phoebe constantly explaining to herself why she was accepting this, and the logic seemed unconvincing and contorted. This is, unfortunately, a book I would put in the category of having an "idiot plot". Meaning, all the protagonist had to do was tell the right people what was going on, and the threat would go away. Phoebe allows herself to get treated like a drudge, be insulted by servants and employers, and tolerates it all. None of the action seems believable. After coming to the wealthy Viscount's household as a modiste, she is handed a bucket and rags and told to clean her own room because there aren't enough servants to do it. HUH?!NEVER!! She is a well-bred 19th century virgin who is willing to accept having a rather sordid romance with an employer that tells her to do work that keeps her up most of the night, treats her as an inferior, makes it clear he is in search of an appropriate bride and she's not it, while still trying to seduce her. DOUBLE HUH? 3. After becoming friendly with Will, there's no good reason for her not to tell him who she is, and avoid a great deal of trouble. Even she can't come up with a good reason while constantly debating it with herself. Her behavior with him is, at all times, grossly inappropriate as either servant or social equal. WHY DOES SHE BEHAVE THIS WAY? I can't mention the other contradictions without giving away too much of the book, but there were many. Unlike Phoebe, Will's behavior is fully consistent with his position and times, so it seems as if London was just careless about creating Phoebe. I'm a fan, so I hope the next book is better.
