Let me get this out- the cover is gorgeous! That smoldering rake.. yummy.
Now the book.. which was pretty average. After having a disappointing reading day yesterday- I was looking for something wonderful to read. Hence I picked this up.
This is the story of Felicity and Lord Ian.
Felicity is the notorious writer, Lord X- who pens gossip columns to support her family- which consists of 4 younger brothers.
When one such speculation leads to the breaking of Lord Ian's engagement as his to be fiancée e
I loved Ian! Felicity was a pain! She always had something to say to stop Ian or slow him way down. I loved the way he gave her some time to realize he was for her. She was so stuborn but Ian knew just how to get his way. Ahh what a man!

Felicity was a gossip writer for the Evening Gazette in 1820 London. She used a pen name...Lord X. She made the mistake of writing gossip about Ian and he got angry about it. He decided to find out just who Lord X is. He was surprised that it was a woman. Her las

Definitivamente el mejor de la trilogía. El personaje femenino es una joya, divertida e ingeniosa, es la chispa de la novela. Siempre tiene una respuesta preparada, la lengua rápida y un corazón honorable. El vizconde al principio parece muy cuadriculado "con un oscuro secreto" como todos, pero también sorprende en su evolución. Por supuesto, en este libro se nota la evolución en la escritura y tardó en aparecer la expresión de "abriendo los ojos como naranjas" ¿lo echaba de menos? Absolutamente ...more
Simply stated, I did enjoy this Sabrina Jeffries historical romance. Of course, the best thing I liked about it was the cover illustration! Sooo yummy!! Just keeping this hero's sexy face in mind doubled the lusty heat portrayed by his character. I've read many romances where the interactions and dialogue between the hero and heroine were witty, sarcastic and very entertaining, but added ruthless to what progresses between this hero and heroine and that extra something that makes their story so ...more

As I am finding with Jeffries' female characters, I found the female lead annoying, somewhat despicable and utterly weak. I also find Jeffries' requisite random non-lead POV insertion to be supremely insulting (because really, I couldn't figure out what this character's motivation was without seeing it from their POV?) and also wrenched me out of the story. I hate that.

However, as usual, Jeffries has interesting mysteries and plots and fantastic male leads. One only wonders what these fabulous m

DNF @ 16%

Their first fight really stressed me out (really really stressed me out) and then I kept reading, only to realize that this was going to be one of those books where the hero and heroine fight all the effing time just to create sexual tension.

Maybe I'm wrong but I don't think I am and I don't want to waste my time reading a book that stresses me out with bickering.

I first read this a few years ago and liked it, but didn't think it was anything much. Then in the last six months or so, I found myself thinking of 'that story where the penniless heroine is secretly a gossip columnist, and she's got to support this brood of younger siblings, and I think they went to a wax museum?...,' only by then, I'd long forgotten the title of the story and who wrote it. After a LONG time searching the archives on my Kindle (attention Amazon: you might get to work developin ...more

Ya ampun, ini buku sudah lama banget aku baca tapi lupa aku review. Akhir-akhir ini emang aku jarang banget baca novel, lebih sering baca komik. Hahahahahaha... Kalau pun baca ebook, biasanya aku cuma ngasih rate di Goodreads, tapi gak aku review >,<

Sebenarnya aku sudah rada lupa sih sama ceritanya. Yang jelas ceritanya kocak. Karakternya sama-sama keras kepala, gak ada yang mau ngalah. Saling nyerang dengan gosip gitu. Gara-gara kolom Mr. X aka Felicity, Ian gak bisa mendapatkan istri, go

I wish I could give this book 10 STARS....I was glad to read Ian the heroine on the other hand what a BIOACH...she was tripping up until literally the end of the book. But Ian was amazing, dark, handsome, kindhearted, lovable and rich...can't ask for a better hero. I thought his character was funny at times, emotional at times and HOT at times. The storyline came together for me but I was surprised that he would be interested in someone like Felicity too damn strong willed and the bit ...more

I've just read some reviews about this, and I kinda agree with them. I wanted to scream at the female lead to stop badgering the poor guy and others when I wanted to scream at the male lead to just tell her the truth. Its not that bad. I was expecting something much worse then that. As the "incident" was an accident! You see it happen a llt these days. When he was telling the story, I really wanted to give the guy a hug.

The female leads 4 brothers were just lovely. I really loved them, and they

The romance between a nearly destitute gossip columnist with four young brothers to care for and a mysterious viscount with a dark secret past.

The two meet when Felicity writes about Ian in an effort to help a timid friend of hers who could not find a reason to refuse his proposal and he becomes determined to discover her real identity and make sure she doesn't write anything else about him.

Neither acts as the other expects and sparks begin to fly from their first encounter, leading Ian to set h

A cheesy, sexy, hot romance...

After reading a third book of same kind i should have been satisfied.. Really i usually do that's why i dont read most of the series which run like 7-12 books or even more but this time i really wished the author had written more in this series...

But i guess i can always read the other books of same kind... Afterall the author have written a quite a lot of them...

What i liked the most is the first half of the book where they were having a banter.. I mean who wouldn'

Jeffries continua la curva ascendiente con esa saga y nos regala una última entrega muy superior a las anteriores, puesto que la trama es más compleja, divertida y excitante. Se podría decir que la autora juega con el esquema de la novela romántica para llevarlo hacía donde la pareja protagonista lo necesita. Además, la protagonista femenina se sale del molde y su química con el vizconde de Saint Clair es una gozada.

I can honestly say that I cannot find one redeeming character about Felicity.

Declaring that she is a serious author when not the least bit of fact checking took place...she writes slander. She should be prosecuted, not married.

The entire book with drove me mad. How are you supposed to like a silly woman like that?

Please do not mistake self confidence with utter stupidity and an overflated ego!!!!!

My absolute favorite from this trilogy. A spitfire, smart and sassy heroine, and a tortured, intelligent, and physical hero, all wrapped up in a great plot. The back-and-forth between the two main protagonists is corking!

I looked forward to Ian's story from the his first appearance in the first book in the series, and more so after his role in the second. I am glad that he found his happy ending after two of his prospective wives eloped with other men--fate had a better partner waiting for him in Felicity Taylor.

It's a toss up between this book and the second in the series for which one I enjoyed more. So glad I finally read this series, SJ is one of my favorite authors, so the only series left of hers to read is Swanlea Sisters, and I'm starting it now!

Did not like the heroine's pitiful character at all. Definitely the worst out of the series.

Won't be reading the rest of the trilogy, that's for sure.
It's been a while since I've read a romance novel with a heroine as annoying as Felicity Taylor. Had to skim the last half of the book just to get through this insipid effort. (Rating: 2 stars)

Easily forgettable regency that borrows heavily from Julia Quinn's Bridgestone series with the woman writing the mysterious newspaper column, and a hero tortured by an uncle and his own past.

We saw quite a lot of Ian, Viscount St. Clair, in the previous book and we learn two things about him: he needs to find a wife soon and there is some sort of mystery about his past.

In this book, we learn that due to the terms of his father's will, Ian must not only marry but also have a legitimate heir in two years time. Otherwise the estate will go to Ian's despicable uncle.

Ian is almost engaged to a quiet, shy girl that he thinks will be suitable. Until the gossip columnist called Lord X insin

Well I started with book 3 of this series and while I think it did well as a stand-alone, I would have loved to have read the previous two books just so I got more of a sense of the previous couples who show up often in this book. That being said, it didn't detract from the book not knowing more about Sara/Gideon's story or Jordan/Emily's story.

In this book, our story focuses on Felicity Taylor who writes a gossip column under the guise of "Lord X" as a way of gaining income to take care of her

sayangnya, temannya Felicity ini (lupa namanya) sudah jatuh hati ama yg lain. tp dasar pendiam, dia hanya berani ngomong ke Felicity. Felicity pun turun tangan. ber

Penutup yang juga sama kerennya dengan novel sebelumnya di series ini. Agak mirip sama cerita di salah satu novel Bridgetons series, yang ada author kolom gossip dengan nama samaran yang sebenarnya dia adalah anggota kaum bangsawan. Jadi dia bisa dengan mudahnya memanfaatkan pergaulannya dengan orang-orang penting untuk dijadikan berita. Kalau di buku ini, heroine kita bernama Felicity. Nah, Felicity ini menulis berita gossip di koran Gazzete dengan memakai nama Lord X. Suatu ketika, Felicity me ...more

“Lord Hartley has strict requirements for his heir’s prospective wife, particularly that she have “a striking appearance and a presentable wit.” One only hopes that the heir apparent recognizes what his father does not—that a woman with a presentable appearance and a striking wit is far more interesting.
