Andrina's two lovely sisters—orphaned, penniless, buried in the country—would never find suitable husbands unless they went to London and imposed on Andrina's godfather, the Duke of Broxbourne, to introduce the girls to society. Her sister's beauty would accomplish the rest. The only snag: Andrina had been so busy arranging her sisters' futures, she failed to notice she wa ...more

Does this book deserve 4 stars? I guess it depends on your criteria. If your criteria is "picked this up at 6pm and finished it by 10pm, enjoying it the whole time", then yes, I think 4 is fair. I'm not saying Barbara Cartland was a brilliant writer--I didn't think that even back in high school when I read these obsessively.

Shelves: romance, historical
Heroine is typical TSTL, even worse she is thinking that she is very clever when it is obviously otherwise. It's actually a little bit disappointing that hero fell in love with her and offered her hand in marriage :)
Hero is behaving badly and pretending to be a scoundrel when actually he is pretty good and decent. But girls are always attracted to boys who behave badly :)

I can't believe I used to devour BC's book. Well, it was back in my teenage days, so I guess I didn't had that much to compare them with, but still. It is trivial litterature at it's most basic. And the Danish translation wasn't that good either.
