January 2012: I think this is officially my favorite Julia Quinn book! I LOVED this book so much. I could not stop laughing throughout.
These two characters, Henry and Dunford, will definitely go down in my all-time favorite couple category for sure....more

This novel started out as the perfect lazy night in. It was thoroughly entertaining and Julia Quinn has once again managed to include a few subtle barbs at her own profession of romance novel writing.
“How about this. La, sir, but you should not call me sweetheart.”
“It’s a start, but if...more
William Dunford tidak salah aku memujanya hehe :D
dari buku pertama *splendid* sosok Dunford selalu menjadi laki-laki tampan, baik hati, ramah dan selalu bisa mengambil hati wanita baik tua maupun muda dalam kalangan Ton.
dalam bukunya sendiri, Dunford masih tetap kharismatik, kocak, teman yg baik dan kekasih yg baik bagi henry *henrieta*.

Dunford, a happy bachelor inherits a title and an estate unexpectedly from a distant cousin. When he arrives, he finds that the estate being overseen by a "distant poor relation." Henrietta is an odd, charming woman who runs the estate like a man, wearing pants and working hard.
Henrietta hates Dunsford on principal. She fears he will usurp her after all her hard w...more
Contrary to the belief of my mate, I positively do not spend all day reading, well not all day every day!
But I did manage to read this yesterday ... in my defence purely because it was only 391 of quite large print, and I am after all an inordinately quick reader, especially if I an engaged with the characters.
The story of William Dunford, referred to by all who know him as simply Dunford, who has newly inherited the title of Lord Stannage, and Miss Henriet...more
It made me giggle on a really bad day, I remember that. It stuck.
There were parts that did fall through a little, so I guess I can't be too disappointed with the ratings. I still love it.
Okay, lets summarize.
Its about a girl, that's kind of been lost all her life, but is a little too bossy, perhaps to cover up her losses? Anyways, she's a dear and I really took to her.
She seems like one of those refreshing characters, that speaks her mind, and does what she thinks and...more
The misunderstanding that takes place could have been figured out with a conversation which is why this is only a 3 star book and not a 4. It was interesting but also a tad annoying, to see b...more
Dunstan and Henry are perfect for one another. And perhaps discovering that so early on in the story is what made the rest of it seem to drag. Because, after all, Henry is a little miss fro...more
Hmm, so you’d think that the hero being Dunford and all, I’d pick this as the favorite in the trilogy. That really didn’t hold true for me. Although I loved this book and the characters, Splendidremains my favorite. But this one is still a close second. Maybe it was because this is the last in the trilogy. I hate reading final books. They always make me sad. That’s not the point! In truth, I thought this was a lovely read, and I’m glad I took the time to open it.
When Henry (Henr...more
i really connected with the female lead Henrietta Barrett she is an intelligent independent young woman that bring a breath of fresh air to a world that sometimes stifels women. julia...more
Dunford, tipikal pemuda cool yang susah ditaklukan yang dengan membaca deskripsi karakternya saja sudah membuat jatuh cinta pada sosoknya.
Henrietta, cewek tomboi yg polos. Sosok yg disandingkan dengan Dunford.
Tipikal sih, dari karakter dan alur. Tapi, Julia Quinn menerjemahkan emosi-emosi karakternya begitu detail. So deserve lah dapat tiga bi...more
When he inherits a title and a country home from a distant relative, William Dunford is as surprised as he is appalled. He knows nothing about the country, has no idea how to run a farm, and has never even been t...more
This book was okay. Just kind of okay. Not one of her best. But okay. I did like the fact that it was set in the country and in London - I thought the contrast was fun.
Dunford was, well, a charming character. I've wanted to read about him from the moment I encountered him in Emma and Alex's tale. Henry was not a typical heroine and I just enjoyed the way her relationship with Dunford developed, especially during the first few chapters. Their banter was quick and easy and natural, and I loved that they didn't immediately fall for each other.
Perhaps the only thing that irked me a bit was how Henry acted in the la...more
That said, it had more twists and turns in the plot than I was used to in Quinn's books which kept me stuck to the book for the whole day although how the whole misunderstanding stemming from the issue about the mistress turned into such a whole fiasco which almost ruined the two main protagonists lives forever was a bit drastic...more
I really enjoy Julia Quinn overall, she creates engaging characters and her d...more
(view spoiler)[ I love that Emma and Alex named their baby after William. And I actually love the name Georgiana. (view spoiler)[
It's great to read sequels. I'm off to read the Bridgerton series! I'll miss Emma, Alex, Belle, John, Henry, and William, though.
Maybe it's time someone made more stories about them! *coughs* Julia Quinn (hide...more
