I love stories in which the main characters knew each other as children and fall in love as adults. That's what drew me to read this sweet story, which I found fast-paced and full of twists and turns. Starting off, Seth Rutledge can't understand why he is so attracted to two completely different women at the same time; Aurora, a glamorous beauty he met at a scandalous soiree, and plain and proper Jane, whom he'd known since childhood. Jane Guthrie has loved Seth for as long as she can remember a ...more
The characters were horrible!

The heroine had no self-respect.

The hero was a spineless coward whose attention span when it came to women was very limited. Infatuated by others while he was with the heroine, once was Madeline and the other was Aurora (yes Aurora was Jane and Jane was Aurora, but the matter of fact is, he did not know that).

Hero sleeps with heroine as Aurora and then makes her out to be a tramp when he finds out Aurora and Jane are one and the same. Really, what a sad excuse for
A Regency-ish romance so cliched, it just begs for a "Romance Convention Checklist" ala "Gossamer Obsessions" :

One philandering dead husband

One widow yearning for childhood love

One lecherous brother-in-law

One faithful old retainer

Three obnoxious children

One guilt-ridden brother/icy-hearted spurned lover

Two secret trips to masquerade balls

One puzzled attraction to two people, who are actually the same person

An interminable number of ridiculously delayed marriage consummations

One blind sister who
This one was a really disappointing book. In the beggining (actually it was until almost at the end) the book was quite good. I even enjoyed it. But the end part made me mad. And if not because of the ending, I would give this book 4.5 stars. Really...

These are what made me gave such low stars :
How could Seth suddenly said that he loved Jane??? That was no explanation, or even something that "poke" his head so he suddenly realised it. It was just Seth arrived at the cottage and said he loved Jan

Lady Jane's life has changed, ever since her husband died a year previously and she became a widow. Now she is living with her in laws, practically a servant to every whim and need. When a opportunity arises to leave for one evening, and attend a ball...she jumps at the chance. So dressed in a beautiful gown with jewelry to match, she goes to enjoy one night for herself. She then comes across a man, whom she has loved most of her life, who broke her heart, and now doesn't even recognize who she ...more
Holy Moly... I haven't liked a book like I liked this one in a while. And the fact that it's a stand alone and not another m*therfuck*ng series is just an added bonus.

I knew I'd probably like it because I have a thing for stories 'in which one of the characters has been pinning for the other for years and then wham! she/he gets her/his chance' but I did not expect to fall in love with this book.

Jane, Lady Guthrie has been in love with Seth Ruthledge since she was 16 years old. However, Seth (a s
One Night with You had a pretty good premise. We have Jane, our heroine, who's a widow living under the thumb of her awful in-laws but manages to have a steamy encounter with the hero at a ball. This hero, Seth, happens to be the one man she's loved since her childhood even though he was infatuated with and soon discarded by her younger sister. Complications arise from that encounter that compel the two to marry, even though the hero refuses to fall under the power of another woman such as the h ...more
seviyorum ben bu yazari yaaa:)
bu kitabini da diger kitaplari gibi begendim keske daha önce okusaydim...
seth ve jane'in hikayesini begenerek okudum bazi yerlerde seth'e bu kadar kör oldugu icin cok kizdim ama sonunda dogru yolu buldu :D
sonuc itibariyle sürükleyici bir kitapti kesinlikle okumanizi tavsiye ederim :)
Bu kitaba asık oldum :) Aslında okudugum HRlar benziyordu ama bir o kadar da farklıydı. Beni gercekten etkiledi. Aşkı,sadakati,tutkuyu ve en önemlisi dramı yansıtıyordu. Bir gecmisi olan aşıklar her zaman benim için bir puan önde başlıyor.
Konusuna gelirsek , Jane çocukluğundan beri Dükkün ikinci oğlu Seth'e aşıktır. Gözü ondan baskasını görmez onun hayalini kurar ve bir gün onunda kendisini seveceğini düşler.Ama Seth gidip Jane'in kız kardeşine tutulur. Ondan daha güzel olan ailesinde hep bas ü

The only negative thing that I have to say about this book is...
I hated how Seth looked down on others who treated his blind sister badly, but continued to believe his sister could not even handle outings, marriage, and children. He was a hypocrite in this behavior.

Having said that...the rest of the book was excellent! I've now read two books by Sophie Jordan, and both were very well written. I could not put this book down, and hope that others find it to be a delight as well!
Typical historical romance fare really, not overly clever or amazing, but generally well written and entertaining for an evening. I have the feeling I've read this before, but things kept happening slightly different to how I remembered them (view spoiler) ...more
Once upon a time, Jane and Seth would frolic together in the fields and ride through the meadows, climb trees and skinny dip in the creek. One day it all comes to a disastrous halt, because Seth realises that Jane’s younger sister is hot, and he gets his flirt on. He breaks Jane’s heart. But Madeline decides she wants to marry a duke instead, so Seth is banished and Jane’s existence becomes hugely miserable.

Nobody loves Jane. Her parents conspire with her sister to marry her off to the worst man
This was my first book by this author and I didn’t “dislike” it but I the storyline was a little suspect. The Hero and Heroine were both great…lovable characters, they just needed a different storyline. Here are the issues I had with the story.
1) The heroine was a widow of 26 (a Viscountess no less) so why in the world did she allow her “in-laws” to degrade her and treat her like a servant…and I mean literally she was an UNPAID servant. She was treated like and spoken to like a servant.
2) The h

Müthiş bir hikayedi..Ne diyebilirim ki Sophie Jordan mükemmel yazıyor.Belki kurgu basit gelebilir ama o duygu yoğunluğunu ve betimlemeleri o kadar güzel veriyor ki yazar gözünüzün önünde o sahneyi çok kolay canlandırabiliyorsunuz..Özellikle çeviri bence harika idi çünkü kitabı elime alıp bırakamadım..Kitabın nasıl bittiğini anlayamadım bile..

I was so taken in by this story that I read it in one day and forgot to watch my favorite HBO show Game of Thrones! This is a sweet historical romance that has you pulling for the main characters all the way. In true romance fashion, there is the push and pull of attraction, some sort of obstacle that gets in their way, someone doesn't want to admit feelings, but in the end, it turns out pretty awesome.

What I liked about this book was pretty much everything as a historical romance fan. The chara
Daha önce çıkmış kitaplarına kıyasla bu kitap bende pek etki bırakmadı.


Açıkçası abla kardeş arası olan ilişkiler ve sonrasın da erkek karakterin aslında kız kardeşini sevdiğini anlaması vs beni sinir eden duurmlardan biri.Bu yüzdende bu hikaye pek içine çekmedi beni.Bir diğer konuda diyalogların azlığı ve iç seslerin çok oluşu sıkılmama yol açtı.Sonlara doğru kitap biraz heyecan kazansa da okundu bitti etkisini yok edemedi.Erkek karakteri ve bayan karekteri sevd
The same story as a debutante's guide to ruin by the same author...just not as good.
All I really want to say about this book is "HA! I knew it would end like that! Ha!"

So I skipped through a bunch of stuff

Because I got bored. This is most definitely not an awful book, it just wasn't the earth shattering orgasm of romance that I had hoped to get my hands on. And, I just wasn't all that in to the characters. It was like eating a slice of meh pie.

Basic of the story is Lady Jane is now a widow and her in laws basically keep her as a prisoner / governess / babysitter / attempted mistress. She sees the love of her young life, who has a sister, who is blind, and who

This one is so angsty with the heroine, Jane, in love with her best friend, Seth, a second son, who overlooks her for younger shallow but super beautiful sister. When Hero gets dumped for richer titled dude he swears off love and women and lumps his best friend in the same pool.

Fast forward years later, the widowed heroine steals away for one night of freedom and is seduced all over again by hero at a masked ball. One forbidden night changes their lives and now heroine has to decide if her chil
2.5 stars for the "could have been better" story

I am thoroughly disappointed with the story and its treatment of such good characters.

Jane has loved Seth since she was seventeen and Seth was an untitled second son.
10 years later she is a widow and he is back from war as the Earl of St Claire after his brother's demise and looking for a wife.

The ending was rather abrupt and I totally didn't understand the side story of Seth's sister.

Seriously, I expect more from Ms Jordan. :(

This is the first time in a while I just can give one star for a book.

I've read some historical romances but this one...I just didn't like it. I didn't like the characters, the writing style, the story.

When I read the summary I thought I might like this because it sounded great but was full of clichees and too much in one book.

It's kinda sad because I so looked forward to read this one.

Bazı olumsuz yorumlardan dolayı okumayı geciktirmiştim ama sonunda okudum. Bence güzel bir kitaptı. Seth'ciğim zaman zaman sinirimi bozsada puanlarımı ondan kırmış olsamda sonunu nasıl getirdim anlamadım. Konuyu beğendim Seth'in hem Jane'e hem Aurora'ya aynı anda ilgi duyması ikisiyle de aynı anda kırıştırmasına sinirlendim aynı kadın olsalarda bişey değiştirmiyor benim açımdan neyse...

Sophie Jordan'ı özlemişim... Çok güzel bir hikayeydi... Aslında gayet bilinen bir hikayeyi kendi tarzıyla çok güzel anlatmış.. Anlatımıyla karakterlerin duygularını birebir yaşadım diyebilirim :) Bu yazarın daha çok kitabı çıksın biz de okuyalım konular ne kadar benzer olursa olsun zevkle okutuyor...
I really should learn that if a historical romance author uses off-putting language in one of her books it stands to reason that it will be there in all of them. The premise of this story drew me in, and the language and oafish hero kicked me right back out.
Meh. I got into this book several chapters and wasn't entertained. The characters felt flat and the heroine seemed a bit of a doormat. I love a romance where the couple knew each other from childhood but this one just didn't seem to do much for me.
It was 'meh'. I liked the plot concept but it wasn't executed well as it should of been done; for example, the scene were he realizes he loves her was too short.
QiJia (On Hiatus) 치쟈
I love the beginning till the 90% of it!

Yea just until the 90th percent.

because the last bit makes no sense.

Sophie Jordan took her adolescent daydreaming one step further and penned her first historical romance in the back of her high school Spanish class. This passion led her to pursue a degree in English and History.

A brief stint in law school taught her that case law was not nearly as interesting as literature - teaching English seemed the natural recourse. After several years

“Pleasure suffused her and she snuggled deeper into his arms, her heart clenching when he tightened his hold on her. After a while his breathing slowed and his hold relaxed. Convinced he slept, she whispered, "You should have been my first." A small ache pinched her heart.
His chest vibrated beneath her hand, sending a thrilling shiver up her spine as his deep voice rumbled through the air, "I'll be your last.”
