Présentation de l'éditeur

Daria Babcock believes she is perilously close to being put on the shelf. With all the young ladies she knows having found marriage and starting families, Daria feels green with envy. When a letter comes from her grandmother Mamie in Scotland asking for help, Daria decides it's the perfect opportunity to get away.
The Laird of Dundavie, Jamie Campbell, has just learned that his uncle has been giving away the family money and emptying the clan's coffers. When Jamie confronts the culprit responsible for swindling his uncle, an elderly English woman named Mamie, she shoots him. And when he wakes up, Mamie's beautiful granddaughter is taking care of him.
Intrigued by the lovely lass, Jamie kidnaps Daria with plans to hold her for ransom. What he doesn't plan on are the sparks that fly as soon as they're alone.

Charming leads make this a five star novel 27 février 2013
Par Melissa - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I adored Julia London's latest novel The Last Debutante. Set in the Scottish Highlands, this novel has rich characters and a romantic charming story.

Laird Jamie Campbell rides onto his neighboring clan's land to confront the swindler who stole his uncle's money. He is greeted by an old woman brandishing a shot gun who later shoots him.

Daria Babcock is the last debutante in her English village and she wants to escape all the happy couples so when her grandmother writes that she needs funds delivered to her in Scotland, Daria jumps at the chance to visit her. Daria is surprised her grandmother is living in a simple crofter's hut and even more shocked to see an injured naked man in her grandmother's house.

When Jamie gains consciousness he takes Daria with him back to his castle demanding that her grandmother must pay back the money owed to his family before she can return to England. Daria is treated as a guest in the castle and even though she is angry and rightfully worried about her grandmother she also takes in the wonder of Highland life. To be sure, the Campbell's are not happy she resides on their land but they are loyal to Jamie and Daria tries winning them over.

I liked Daria. She is optimistic and sincere. She is good natured and to the core a kind generous soul. She is a little shy with her feelings but also bold when needed. She is adaptable and not on a constant rant about her circumstances. She does not pursue endless arguments with the hero.

Jamie is a good laird. He is turned upside down by Daria and part of the charm of this novel is seeing Jamie trying to categorize his feelings. He broods a little but only because he really is trying to think through his emotions. He is forgiving and he also possesses a generous spirit.

This couple's romance unfolds in a lovely fashion. They respect and like each other and rarely do they use harsh words. The conflict comes more from their internal feelings. Both are uncertain of not only their feelings but the other's too. Both have charisma and both are self sacrificing. The final chapters of this novel move fast but not so fast that the reader does not appreciate the wonderful romance between the leads.

Definitely worth buying! 27 février 2013

What a delightful addition to the Secrets of Hadley Green series!

Daria Bobcock is the last debutante of Hadley Green. Her day begins and ends like most English ladies, with teas and parties, but as she sees all of her friends enjoying their martial lives and babies, she grows restless and thirsts for a meaning to her life, a purpose that will fulfill and define her. Having no wanted martial prospects in the vicinity, and with her parents' refusal to grant her a Season in London, she is eager to go help her grandmother in Scotland when her grandmother's letter comes requesting financial assistance. Of course, she never expected to encounter a naked, unconscious man in her grandmother's cottage.

Jamie Campbell, Laird of the Dundavie Campbells, was unexpectedly shot by an old woman when he tried to make her admit her thievery to his clan, that she had duped his mentally ill uncle for a much-needed thousand pounds. He woke to find the old woman's beautiful granddaughter, Daria, and after some confusion, decided to take her ransom in his clan's castle until the thousand pounds is paid.

What I enjoy most about this book are the main characters and the gradual love that is built between them throughout the novel. Daria may be a young English miss, but she is nothing if not cheerful and determined, with a sincere heart to want to help others. She makes the best of her captivity and tries to befriend the Campbells, all the while falling in love with their intelligent and kind Laird. Jamie may not like the English, but he cannot resist Daria's sunny smiles and the warmth she infuses her surroundings. Their relationship develops from admiration of each other's character to a gentle camaraderie and love. Jamie perceives the missing component in Daria's life - bravery to pursue her own happiness, and she in turn teaches him that love is more important than clan alliances and heritage.

The first 3/4 of the book moves pleasantly, mostly with the developing relationship between Daria and Jamie. There is an underlying mystery and intrigue aspect to the novel that is fully explained near the end when the secret of Hadley Green is finally revealed, along with some skeletons of Daria's family. The ending feels a little rushed, and not enough has been expanded on how the characters will eventually deal with these emerging problems, but the book's end message is a timeless one of love conquers all.

I have thoroughly enjoyed The Last Debutante. This novel is like a refreshing walk through the meadows, full of sweetness and poignancy. The cast of characters is interesting and dynamic, and the lush settings of the wilds of Scotland only enhances the reading experience. It's time to add Julia London to your auto-buy list if you haven't already done so!

Slow start to Scottish romance and then POW! It took off... 26 mars 2013
Par Ace Reader - Publié sur
Format: Poche
"The Last Debutante" had me very worried at first. This is my very first time reading a Julia London book. I wasn't sure what to expect. This story had a very slow start. It was mildly interesting and somewhat boring for the first nine chapters. I was saying to myself...if this doesn't pick up soon I'm giving up. I never give up on a book. So I soldiered on and low and behold this story bloomed right before my very eyes into an English Rose. A fine thing of beauty. This story took off and never stopped entertaining after that. I was shocked! I ended up really liking this book. It turned out to be pretty clean too, with only a few sex scenes near the end. This story is a romantic and enjoyable read about a beautiful English DEBUTANTE (a young woman making her formal entrance into society) named Daria Babcock, who finds herself held as ransom (in his Scottish castle no less!) by a handsome Highland Scottish laird who looks at her with fire in his eyes. These two characters are alive in this story sparking off one another, and kept me reading as fast as I could turn the pages! This story has highs and lows just like the Highlands of Scotland. I have to say this story did surprise me in it's ability to entertain me after chapter nine. But, that's 96 pages of wondering if this story was ever going to start going somewhere interesting. Because of this stories inability to truly engage me right away, I must deduct one star. So be advised...don't give up on this story. Just keep reading and everything will be alright! Recommended and surprisingly a keeper! Enjoy!

I really liked it 8 avril 2013

Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
It's hard to find an original plot when you've read a few hundred historical romances but an original plot is what this book provided. I loved the combination of English and Scottish customs and really loved the hero. This was a fun, quick paced and unique book. I would have liked a tad more humor in the dialogue but overall a well written solid book.
