Présentation de l'éditeur

The choice between adhering to a long-held pact and finally accepting love could prove Lady Tabitha Shelton’s unhinging. She is plump, plain, pleasant . . . and thoroughly unappealing to any of the men of the ton—apart from fortune hunters. A self-appointed wallflower, she has every intention of remaining one. Tabitha made a vow of spinsterhood with her cousins when they were girls, and she refuses to go back on her word. So far, she’s proven herself quite adept at warding off the blasted fortune hunters’ pursuits.

Noah deLancie, Marquess of Devonport, would prefer to marry for love and companionship—he’s a gentleman through and through—but circumstances have forced his hand: he needs money as badly as he needs a bride. When Noah’s brother-in-law suggests pursuit of his sister, Tabitha, a woman with a dowry large enough to cause even Croesus to blush and who is tantalizingly good company to boot, Noah stumbles into the future he hopes to secure. He’ll stop at nothing to convince Tabitha to marry him.

Nothing, that is, except perhaps the barrel of a dueling pistol, held to his face by his ladylove.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 Glad it was free 20 mai 2012

Oh my, this could have been a good book. But...

(1) The author introduces too many characters too fast, and then refer to some of them by two or more different names. It takes forever to sort out who is who, and that (for example) "Tobias," "Toby" and "Shelton" are the same person. Irritating at the least.

(Moderate Spoilers Below)

(2) The heroine's brothers, cousins and hopeful suitor discover a dastardly bet regarding the heroine in White's betting book. Do they warn her that two cads have bet that one of them will successfully seduce her? Noooo. And then she wonders why the brothers et al are falling all over themselves trying to keep the cads away from her. She even accepts an invitation to a picnic from the worst of the two. She ends up in a dangerous situation because of that picnic, which would have been completely avoidable if she had known that he was not to be trusted. Categorize this as one of those tiresome "huge intractable problem" plot devices that could have been solved with one simple conversation.

(3) The heroine holds onto a ridiculous pact made in her childhood with her two best friends. Keeping true to a silly agreement made before the age of reason is more important to her than acknowledging and accepting the love of a truly decent man. What? How dumb is this chick?

(4) A key plot point hinges around the heroine flinging herself onto a spirited horse and riding to the rescue, even though previously it was well-documented earlier in the book that she does not like horses, and she does not like riding. And then all of a sudden she can ride like a Valkyrie? I don't think so....

(5) Some other reviewers have expressed doubt about a wallflower suddenly blooming. I agree - it certainly is not impossible for a self-doubting person to gain confidence, but it does not happen overnight.

So glad this book was free.

Two stars.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 I stopped reading it. 14 juin 2011

I tried. I really tried to finish it but I was just too exhausted. There were so many names and characters to keep track of. I still can't tell you who all were siblings, who were cousins, and who were couples. I guess some of them appeared in other books; many more of them will appear in future books.

My biggest complaint is that you land smack-dab in the middle of a relationship five years in the making. It seriously took them this long to finally "see" the other person?

The heroine is an overweight, on the shelf woman who lacks self-esteem and self-worth. The hero is supposed to be a charming, pacifist type nice guy who has secretly lusted after the heroine for quite some time. Her brother is married to his sister. One day, he realizes that he needs money. The heroine's dad is dropping dollars on her dowry in order to entice some gentleman to marry her. Bam! Her brothers think this dude would be perfect for their sister so they plot to get them together. I don't know, but I felt betrayed reading the antics and comments made by her brothers and cousins. I just never felt like there was a connection between the hero and heroine; it was all about necessity for the both of them.

Small Spoilers
I didn't like the fact that I learned the color of the hero's hair in the second half of the book. I didn't like the fact that you learn towards the end of the book that the heroine had a previous lover. I just gave up on it towards the end. As another reviewer mentioned, the concept was good, but the execution was poor.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent story, good writing 29 avril 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Don't know what the bad reviews are about. I really like this book and I have zero tolerance for mediocre writing! The plot is complex enough to be interesting and the characters are believable and likeable. A little more steaminess than I care for but I can flip past that. Not offensive, just doesn't contribute to the story for me. That's just a personal preference. Even though I knew there was a fairly predictable happy ending coming up, the story still held my interest to the last page. Excellent regency style. I liked that the female lead was not too beautiful to be believed. The characters felt human, like someone you might have known. If you like regency and you like more depth in a story than a half-dried mud puddle, just get it and enjoy.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Boring read with way too much emphasis on graphic scenes.. 26 juin 2012
Par A. M. Edwards - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This book was tolerable. The writing was okay, but nothing to write home about. The characters were moderately likable, the male more than the female. It seemed that the story was long, drawn out and very boring and then bam, there would be an overly graphic sex scene. What happened to romance, to dialogue to suspense and angst? This book seemed to lack the good story telling and language and was really reduced to a cheap thrill. Not for me, and not for me to recommend.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Not what I expected 5 septembre 2012
Par Ronnie - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
I liked the hero much more than I liked the herione in this one. The whole book she's so reserved and absolutely shocked and flustered by a man trying to compromise her. Spoiler alert! After she finally accepts a proposal, she forces her intended to have her in a public place. It's then revealed she's no blushing virgin at all. She's had an affair with a former family footman! Really not happy with that revelation. A woman from that time would not be accepted so easily after something like that.
