Courting danger...

Lady Evelyn Darlington's first love was the law. But since a woman scholar meets nothing but ridicule from men, she has given up and chosen a future husband. Randolph seems adequate for the task: to provide intelligent conversation and not annoy her too much. Of course, before they can be engaged, she'll have to do something about the murder charge hangin

pertama kali tertarik baca buku ini krn covernya manis dan sinopsis nya bagus...belum lagi ceritanya yg tentang barrister..beda dengan HR biasa...
bagi yg belom tau, barrister itu semacam pengacara zaman HR dimana seorg barrister biasanya lulusan oxford...

cerita dimulai dari heroine kita, Lady Evelyn Darlington yg datang diam2 ke persidangan our hero, jack harding buat mencari bantuan. lady evelyn berniat menyewa jasa jack untuk mewakili calon tunangannya mr. randolph something (gak inget namanya

A good story. Don't be surprised if the villain is easily recognizable.

This novel had many components I enjoy about historical suspense: a barrister, courtroom drama, brawls, romance and action. The proses are beautifully written. However, one area I felt lacking was the hero and the heroine were too perfect.

What makes a novel more interesting is character flaws. Who wants to read cookie cutter characters! Despite the heroine stubborness, she could do everything perfectly. Another aspect that c

In The Barrister's Chamber introduces Jack Harding -- perhaps the best defense lawyer of his generation. As a young man, Jack never showed any inclination towards the study of law or for any study, for that matter -- but, after studying under Emmanuel Darlington, Jack found his calling. He is smart, successful and well-received in Polite Society -- all the things that Jack has worked towards accomplishing. He has decided that a wife and a family would be needless complications in the well-oiled ...more

Suka sama buku ini, kedua karakternya sama" kuat, intriknya bagus, orang" disekitar pemeran utama juga menarik untuk dibaca, ga sabar baca buku berikutnya.

Suka dengan Evie yang tidak biasa dan beda dengan karakter wanita di buku" HR lainnya, dia punya pendirian yang kuat, cerdas, tidak peduli pendapat kalangan masyarakat yg cenderung berpikiran sempit, mungkin krn dia dibesarkan dgn diberikan kebebasan untuk mengemukakan pendapat oleh ayahnya, sehingga ia menjadi karakter yang menarik.

This was on a recommended list and the first page sample was the best part of a disappointing novel. I wish the whole book( and yes I did finish it because I kept waiting for it to improve) was as intriguing as that sample. The guilty party was too easy to predict, the main characters never became anyone I cared about and the supposedly intelligent main character never used her brains to help figure out how to help her supposed fiance. Parts of the book sounded like they were written by a histor ...more

Lady Evelyn Darlington is a strong independant women who seeks the aid of the sexy barrister Jack Harding to help her find justice for her soon to be betrothed. Evelyn finds herself in hot water trying to clear her "betrothed" name, along side of Jack who was her crush when she was just a child. The more time Evelyn spends with Jack the more she gets close to losing her heart to him.

This is a romantic-mystery novel. It was interesting to read about the judicial system during the Regenecy period

Tina Gabrielle has created convincing three dimensional characters in her book In the Barrister's Chambers. The characters speak, act and seem to feel the way a real person would in a similar situation. The plot has many twists and turns that keep you riveted to your seat and turning pages to see what happens next.

Lady Evelyn Darlington loves the law. After all she was raised by her widowed father who was a professor at Inns of Court that took pupils under his wing for tutelage. One such pupil w

In The Barrister's Chambers was definitely a delight to read. It had an engaging storyline along with murder intrigue that kept me guessing until the end. There is also great character development. I enjoyed getting to know both Jack and Evelyn as they were very likeable characters. They are folks that I'd have enjoyed getting to know in real life. As for Randolph, he's not an unlikeable character by any means but I would definitely agree wi

Lady Evelyn Darlington knows law. She’s been reading her father’s law books for years. When she was twelve years old, she had a tremendous crush on Jack Harding, one of her father’s best law students. Being a precocious, charming, intelligent little girl, she’d done all she could to gain his attention, even learning Latin verbs as well as studying law books with even more fervor. Now ten years later, she watches Jack in court and know

I love the Regency period with all of its rakes and hellions. There's something about reading about spunky heroines taming the wild men of Society that's so appealing. This was my first barrister though and, I'll have to admit, I wasn't sure I'd like a lawyer hero at first.

I was so wrong! Gabrielle has created a whole new image of barristers in my mind with this novel. Jack Harding is hot and seductive and hot and intelligent and hot...did I mention hot? :) I also enjoyed the spunky Lady Evelyn

The story takes place in 1814, London. When Lady Darlington's future husband, Randolph Sheldon becomes the primary suspect in a murder, Evelyn enlist the help of a childhood acquaintance: Jack Harding.
The plot is primarily a murder-mystery, with a very sensual romance between Evelyn and Jack.

Mélange de romance historique et d'intrigue policière, j'ai été agréablement surprise par ce livre.
Les 2 héros sont agréables, le style également.
J'ai couiné, été embarquée, et j'ai hâte de découvrir les histoires des trois autres avocats.
Un bon premier tome prometteur.

I was listening the original soundtracks of Kiss of the Damned when I finished this romance book. Well, it was very refreshing~

Reading a book is like ransacking someone else's brain, and the truth will turn out to be the imagines pictured in your own mind.

A strange love that began in the early nineteenth-century court rooms, developed in the fish markets and taverns, finally distilled in the mausoleum with odd tombstones and sliver moonlight. A little peculiar but not bad.

An interesting start to a series. While I did like the first book in the Barrister's series I wasn't overly satisified with the hero, for me there was something I couldn't quite figure out with his character to let the heroine pretty much make him do what she wanted. He was portrayed as a strong demanding male but caved when she asked him to do anything for her with very little argument.
I think that at least two of the other three barristers have the potential for real good stories, not sure ab

I was in my local Barnes and Nobel and Tina Gabrielle was there signing books. SO I absolutely HAD to get one and I found out she lives near me! Awesomeness! Anyway, I devoured this book. I loved how strong and intelligent the heroine is in this and how the hero isn't just accepting of her brains but loves her more for them! The mystery in this book was, to be honest, the best I've read in a romance in a VERY long time. I didn't guess who the killer at all, I couldn't. They all looked guilty. I ...more
Una grata sorpresa.
El tema de la abogacía resulta un fondo original a las que como yo acostumbramos a leer regencia, una forma de huir de bailes, cenas y paseos por Hyde Park.
Me ha gustdo la forma de llevar el caso del asesinato, de una forma ágil, que te mantiene en vilo hasta el final.
Los protagonistas tampoco son los tipicos miembros de la nobleza.

In the Barrister's Chambers was a page turner from beginning to end. Hero Jack Harding took my breath away, just as he did Evelyn Darlington's. After reading Lady of Scandal, I was anxious to read another one of Tina's Regency titles...and this one surely does not disappoint! Tina gives away just enough to tease the reader, and keep her on the edge of her seat. I had a lot of fun being "seduced" by Jack Harding, as well as guessing the identity of the infamous killer.

If this romance novel were a food, it is so bland you'd be dying for a dab of Tabasco. So, the back cover first claimed that this heroine is bent on becoming a lawyer, despite the odds and the men's mockery on her pursuit. Yet, sadly, her only pursuit here is the lawyer himself! Almost the whole book is about her chasing him, well, coyly in a way if you ask me. She has REASONS to come to him ok? Well, at last, we got to the highlight of this whole scenario: Yes!

I never could finish this book. I really like the premise and LOVE historical romances with non-aristocratic heroes. However, the heroine is supposed to be smart and scholarly and just never came across like that to me. Also, I couldn't get over the massive conflict of interest the hero has with the accused. Maybe the guy was guilty and that's supposed to make me feel better about Jack's conflict on interest, but I couldn't finish enough of the book to find out.
