I had to find out. Philip is so obviously madly in love with her, but she remains totally oblivious to it even though she’s very much aware of him too.


Overall, a light and fun regency romance. I rarely buy books full price as in, not at a thrift store or Goodwillbut on seeing the amazing reviews, I went out in a limb and bought it.

Do we have julinane heroine who has donaldsoon spasms? There were four main problems that I could tell in the book — one dimensional character, weak plot line, non-existent setting for being a period piece, and poor writing.

It did not disappoint me! I don’t really juliannne romance novels, so I lack a frame of reference.

It could easily have taken place anywhere at any time. Boy meets girl under harrowing circumstances. Darcy’s and Elizabeth’s from Pride and Prejudice; except the male protagonist is a lot nicer. Buddy read with Becca!

Philip and Marianne have an awesome love story, while there is an attraction, I loved that they actually build a friendship first.

NO, it is not. They’re is an easy report between them and you can really feel their connection. This one was so …more I am in a book club at my local library and the last 5 books have not appealed to me and I have only just read pages or less.

I am in love with Philip maybe even more than my beloved Mr. He even loved it. Self-admitting less attractive younger women unknowing to herself falls in love with dashingly handsome and rich heir to an estate. But she fumes a bit and then gets into the carriage WHY?
