Hmmm. How to recap this without giving too much away? Plus it's been days since I finished it.

The details of the birth and early childhood of Miranda James are pretty complicated, plus you don't want me spoiling it. So let's just say she was the legitimate daughter of the younger brother of some lordling in Cornwall who wed the governess. Tragic events happened that resulted in mom and daughter being sent away with enough money to live comfortably on, but more tragic events happened and they bec...more
Part of my abject fascination with Jennifer Wilde, revolves around the fact that Jennifer Wilde was merely a pseudonym for Thomas Huff, a male romance novel writer! and the other reasoning came when I discovered he somewhat resembled Cam Gordon, when he was younger. I’m always eager to hear romance spoken from a male perspective, well—if it’s genuine enough. Beer-chugging robot sex-slaves could make it less than worth my while, you see.

The two love stories wrapped into one, was a delightful addi...more
Miranda James is simply one of the most memorable heroines in historical romance, definitely worthy of taking her place alongside other feisty characters such as Amber St. Clare and Scarlett O'Hara!

From the very first page, I just became absorbed in the story and got completely lost in another world. Great storytelling, rich settings and colorful characters entertain from start to finish. A lonely governess, a sinister master, pirates, prostitutes, actors, authors, pickpockets, dukes, and scoun...more
I read this book perhaps twenty years ago and loved it. LOVED it. The witty dialog, the fun characters, the pluck of the heroine...did I mention that I loved it?

Then I read it again recently. It could be too many women's history classes in college, but I could not get past what is clearly domestic violence. The heroine and hero, Miranda and Cam, have violent fights followed up by violent sex. Cam chokes Miranda to the point that she nearly passes out, and yet she stays with him and is even happy...more
This is an interesting narrative of Miranda, a girl from the streets of London in the 1800s who works her way up to become a celebrated author. However, the book is marred for me since it comes from the era of bodice rippers and there's a short passage in which the hero becomes violent with the heroine.
Avventuroso a dir poco, ambientato in una Londra difficile dai sobborghi fumosi, in cui la gente sopravvive con mille espedienti, ma lei non si vende, ruba, ma non vende la sua bellezza. Il lui di questa storia è duro, non ricalca nessun altro personaggio che io avessi incontrato fino a questo libro. Questo è un punto di merito, perché non è banale e il rapporto tra i due è conflittuale, passionale, profondo e mai risolto.
La coppia è davvero unica, vivace, memorabile. Anche la Wilde è una sorpre...more
Jennifer Wilde wrote great historical fiction in the 80's - she was one of my favourites authors, then just disappeared. I loved everything I read of hers.
Read this sooooo long ago! A fairly quintessential trashy romance novel..
