The hero was illegally impressed onto a Navy ship as a regular seaman (It was apparently illegal to impress a gentleman, but "regular" men were fair game.) and forced to serve for several months. The experience has changed his life--given him a respect for the "lower classes," and for hard work. He's also been injured, and now that his relations have found him, they've arranged for him to recuperate at the country home of a gentleman. He's in pretty bad shape when he arrives, so the heroine is p ...more

Con esta historia tarde demasiado porque me resulto tediosa la forma en que la autora escribe, entre más seguía leyendo me resultó pesado y poco entretenido. Si bien, el romance no me pareció la gran cosa, quizá porque Amanda no causo una buena impresión en mi ya que no la saque de quejica y de que no quería tener serca al protagonista pero era la primera en ir y buscarlo, simplemente esa contradicción me fastidiaba junto con su actitud. Por otro lado, Greville, era un personaje normal que

The characters had me at first glance. Greville Anders, the most disreputable gentlemen of the title had me as he got out of the coach at Ashton Grove although Amanda Neville took me a little longer to warm up to—forgetting the way young ladies of that age were brought up and the class differences. Of course, in little time, I took to rooting for Greville to overcome Amanda’s idea of what she should do and convince her to do what she wanted to do. I often am glad I was not born of that time with ...more

IS ONE NIGHT WITH AN INFAMOUS RAKE WORTH THE RISK? Wounded in action courageously fighting pirates, the notorious Greville Anders returns to society with neither the dress nor the conduct considered proper for a gentleman. Even more scandalous is the fact that well-brought-up debutante Amanda Neville finds this rogue irresistibly tempting… It was her mama’s last wish that her beautiful daughter should have a glittering London Season, shine on society’s stage and marry a lord… But now Amanda’s gr ...more

"Society's Most Disreputable Gentleman" is a most charismatic gentleman indeed! Julia Justiss has created a charming character study of Greville Anders, the only son of a nobleman's younger son. Without a title, and a clear ambition, Greville lives a life of seemingly carefree debauchery. After serving a minor role in the battle of Waterloo, Greville returns home and is made the manager of one of his titled cousin's minor estates. Willingly turning over the management duties to one of his associ ...more

Obviously I knew it would work out well given the category, but I still liked the book. It was a fast, simple read that kept me engaged for a few hours without having to worry about work. I enjoyed the depth of the characters and the way they interacted with each other. Some of the characters were annoying, and I felt like a few of the conflicts had no resolution.

I don't remember reading anything about Black John after he takes Amanda captive and then leaves her. Do they catch him?

I have fallen in love with this series and just can't seem to stop myself from reading them. However, I just did not love this book. It was a slow read for me. There was nothing that really pulled me in.

Very, very enjoyable book! :D

Amanda Neville is a country bred lady set to finally have her first Season when her father agrees to house Greville Anders--a gentleman illegally impressed into the Navy and wounded in battle--during his recuperation. What follows is a charming tale of two people who each think they want one thing, only to realize that their desires had changed.

I love the way that both characters show great emotional growth during the course of the book,and both were immensely likea

Rather unique in that our hero was an impressed seaman and, although possessed of connections, untitled. It was interesting to witness Greville's character growth and his desire to amend past wrongdoings. However, the story really doesn't take off until at least halfway through when Amanda goes to London for her season. It was also nice to revisit prior characters. A decent read but not very exciting. 3.2 stars.

Não há grande coisa a dizer dos livros Harlequin... As estórias são semelhantes, personagens tipo para praticamente todos os livros.
Estes romances servem para uma pausa entre livros sérios.

De notar que neste livro não notei os tipicos erros a que já me habituei nos livros Harlequin.

Though it started slow, ended up really enjoying this! Just a simple and cute love story, with two very like-able protagonists, well worth a snowy morning read.

The best historical romance novel I've read so far. It has everything one hopes to find without many exaggerations. Great book.
I read to Chapter Four. DNF. Not my style of writing. Off to pluck another from the TBR.
