Originally posted on Adria's Romance Reviews

Married to the Viscount is one of my favorite Sabrina Jeffries books. It is one of the few books that checks off all the things that make a historical romance a hit for me.

Spencer Law, the Viscount Ravenswood is such a stuffy, arrogant and a generally unlikable fellow when he is first introduced to readers in Dance of Seduction so finding out he was to be the hero of the next book was a little hard to believe. Would this stuffy man lower his lofty stan...more

PARAH!
ini rame banget, menurutku.

Spance sudah tertarik pada Abby dari pertama ia melihat gadis Amerika itu di dapur rumahnya, dengan kepangan dan kelompak-kelopak bunga yang bertebaran di sekitarnya dan di celemeknya.
sebuah muslihat yang dilakukan oleh adiknya Spance, Nat, membuat ia menikah dengan Abby. dengan tanggungjawab--atau kebiasaannya untuk memperbaiki segala kesalahan Nat--membuat Abby untuk menyetujui pernikahan pura-pura sampai mereka menemukan Nat dan...more

I'm a sucker for romance novels and sometimes I'll go through binges and then get sick of them and go on to something else. This was the second in my most recent romance novel binge.

In this novel we have the dashing viscount who wishes to not marry for whatever reason (I forget what it is now) when one day he finds himself married by proxy. You think to yourself, how does a marriage by proxy works? I'd never heard of the term before.

Well, the viscount's brother promises the future bride to take...more

Buku terakhir dari pentalogi Swanlea Spinters ini kembali menyuguhkan cerita cinta dari pasangan yang salah satu tokohnya pernah muncul di buku keempat, Spencer, atasan Morgan Pryce.

Cerita dibuka dengan percakapan pribadi antara Spencer dan sang adik, Nathaniel dalam keadaan setengah mabuk tentang seorang gadis Amerika, Abigail yang menurutnya berpotensi untuk menjadi wanita yang akan menaklukkan hati sang kakak yang selama ini tidak pernah mau terlibat serius dengan seorang wanita. Spencer send...more

ngakak baca awal cerita....

ceritanya Spencer udah kepincut ama Abby, sayang...Spencer ga berani ngelamar gara2 takut ga bisa punya anak. nah, rahasia ini ga pernah Spencer ceritain kecuali ke 1 orang : adiknya, Nat...itupun pas Spencer mabok.

rupanya, Nat mempunyai rencana menjodohkan sang kakak dg wanita pujaannya. termasuk diam2 mewakilkan Spencer menikahi Abby (Ehm....) tapi rencananya berantakan tatkala Abby memutuskan mendatangi lgsg sang "suami" stlh ayahnya meninggal.

sementara itu, hari it...more

So-so last book of the series, which could be read as a standalone. Spencer, the Viscount of Ravenswood finds out he is married by proxy (thanks to his younger brother, Nat) to the beautiful American, Abby Mercer, whom he eyed the year before while visiting his brother in Philadelphia. She shows up on his doorstep in London, thinking she is married to him, but that's not the case at all. To avoid scandal, they must pretend they are really married, but due to a secret Spencer is keeping from ever...more

Pada hari pertunangan adiknya, Spencer Law dikejutkan oleh kedatangan seorang wanita yang dikenalnya sewaktu dia berkunjung ke Amerika, Abigail Mercer, dan wanita itu mengaku kalau dia adalah istri Spencer. Rupanya Nathaniel, adik Spencer, telah menipu miss Abby dan melakukan pernikahan mewakili kakaknya sebagai tanda jadi penyerahan perusahaan Mead yang dibangun olah ayah Abby yang sudah hampir meninggal karena sakit. Nathaniel menghilang, dan mau tak mau Spencer menahan Abigail di London sampa...more

Selalu deh.. semua karangannya Sabrina Jeffries emang kerent-kerenn,,!!

ngga kaget kalo novel ini pun dianugrahi cerita serta karakter yang hebat juga.

dibuku-buku sebelum nya, viscount Ravenswood selalu yang jadi perencana, penipu muslihat and many more,, eh sekarang dan dibuku ini, dia yang kena batunya. dan rahasia terbesarnya adalah, viscount yang kaku dan serius ni akan bersikap ceroboh serta jujur kalo lagi mabuk !

oke, jadi diceritakan tiba2 Spencer Law a.ka Ravenswood didatengi Miss Abigail...more

Oh boy. I really wanted to like this book but no matter how many chances I gave it (second and third and even fourth chances), I finally had to admit defeat.

I love "fish-out-of-water" stories so the idea of a headstrong American woman sailing to England to live with her husband-by-proxy stuffy English Viscount was right up my alley. Sadly, though, the execution of this premise falls flat, opportunities are missed, and the main characters are all over the map in their thoughts and actions.

Sebenernya saya udah punya buku ini sejak lama dan udah baca versi Indonesianya. Tapi pengen aja baca ulang. Agak gak suka sama Heronya, rada-rada jerk gitu. Kadang charming juga. Bikin bingung. Heroinenya di awal-awal lugu banget gara2 dia orang Amerika & ga tahu-menahu soal rules of society, padahal di sini dia 'pura-pura'nya jadi istri Viscount. Intinya sih novel ini tentang kawin pura-pura yang akhirnya jadi beneran. Duh, gak banget deh review saya kali ini. Wkwkwkwk...

Ceritanya itu lucu -lucu romantis, tp nyebelin!
Baru pertama ini aku baca historical romance yg heronya udh nunjukin tanda-tanda tertarik sm heroinenya. Spencer memang keras kepala tp baik bgt, mau jatuhkan harga dirinya untuk minta maaf sm cewek yg coba dia jauhi. Alur ceritanya sexy bgt.........!!
Pengen bgt deh dipihak abby, dapetin cowok yg super" perfect (impossible). Akhirnya mereka bisa juga mempunyai keturunan walaupun berdua merasa putus asa sehingga harus mengadopsi anak

Great story !

Great finish to the series. Abby and Ravenswood were a dynamic couple - strong willed, resourceful, loyal, and determined. I loved to watch as Ravenswood, the refined and emotionally cool diplomate, became the desperate lover each time Abby threatened to leave. The secondary characters were nicely developed too. Overall, a very entertaining book and series by this author. To fully appreciate Ravenswood's transformation in this story, I'd recommend reading this series in order written.

Rating: 3.5...more

Yes, akhirnya selesai juga baca seri swanlea spinster nya sabrina jeffries. Dan yg terakhir ini yg the best menurut ku. Kisah Abby dan Spencer ini mirip2 sm kisahnya Lilian dan Marcus (Lisa Kleypas), dimana cewenya AMerika banget dengan segala karakter bebasnya dan si cowonya Inggris banget tapi sebenernya muak juga dengan segala tata krama khas Inggris yang serba kaku. Dan dengan si Abby lah )istri pura2nya) Spencer takjub banget, dimana Abby bisa bikin Spencer jatuh cinta dengan sikap blak-bla...more

I love reading about the stuffy serious guys who get turned head over heels by a woman. It started out a little slow but quickly got quite entertaining. Even the characters' arguments and misunderstandings were funny. All of the scenes with the children were adorable as well. I loved Spencer showing all the kids the peep show boxes (view spoiler). I also thought Spencer's reasons for not wanting to marry were sort of unusual fo...more

The last book of the series. *sniff*. I loved them, just pure fabulous and now I have no idea what to read next!

This book is based on Ravenswood, Morgan's friend from the last book and sweet American Abby. His brother Nat schemes and somehow gets the two married by proxy while they live on different continents. He has no idea and finds out when she turns up with her servant saying she's his wife. He blackmales her amlot, and I hated him for it. I understand why he did some of the things he did...more

Bacanya lompat buku ke 5, buku ke 4 masih blm ditangan hehehe...

Huffff...... Spencer yang Agung hehehe.. bener2 hero yg pengen dijitak, dipukulin, lempar ke got tp abis itu dicintai hahaha :P
sayangnya si Mercer (heroinnya) tipe2 yg oke lah dia dari Amerika, okelah dia setengah Indian, tp gimana ya.. agak kurang percaya diri dengan dirinya sendiri, awalnya agak sedikit "aaaw heroinnya lemah" tapi makin dibaca si mercer ini makin garang juga *sukaa kl heroinnya garang*

It didn't grab my attention. Not much of a romance, either. They just live together and gradually he realizes he wants her around forever.
Magdamaz
Nice, easy to read, positiv. Just the thing I was looking for in historical romans.
Fany Renjana
finally, setelah tertunda beberapa hari, buku ini habis terbaca. Bagus sih, suka banget sama karakter Aby disini, saya sepenuhnya di pihak Nathaniel. Cuma dari kelima seri Sabrina Jeffries yang Swanlea, saya masih paling suka yang After The Abduction. Spencer disini kurang mempesona (not as charming as Sebastian) heheheh :D seandainya Abby nggak hamil di akhir cerita ini mungkin semakin seru, but this book is recommended

A solid good read, even though the hero was stubborn to the point of annoyance. However, this became an endearing quality as the book progressed. The heroine was charming and stood toe to toe with the hero. The ending did not quite live up to the build-up, but I did want this couple despite the ups and downs to get a satisfactory HEA, and they did. Recommend~
Heather
I loved Lord Ravenswood. I went from liking to hating to finally loving him. There were a few things that I was like "oh, man, Abby you can do better so don't forgive him. Get even" which of course she does :-) I like that he had to hit rock bottom, emotionally, before he came to realize he loved Abby. I won't say anything else, but it was a Wonderful story!

The first part of the book, where the characters and situation were introduced, seemed a lot more promising than it ended up being. Too many misunderstandings, misconceptions, wrong assumptions, 180 degree turns, to make it truly enjoyable. I could have throttled both the hero and heroine quite a few times in the story!
PoligirlReads
This was just okay. The hero was a jerk. I mean yeah, he had a fairly significant reason not to marry, but he just went about things all backwards, upside-down wrong, to such a degree that I couldn't buy his redemption scenes. I wasn't terribly impressed with the heroine either.
Mariani
I like this one,but not totally in love.
I love abby,but not spencer~
Di Dance of seduction,dia lumayan memberi kesan seseorg yg berkharisma,but here..Hmph..
Mnrt aku dia lumayan egois,emg sih dia menyesel,tp bete abiz awal bacanya..
But,storyline nya msh oke la
Sarah
Abigail proxy marries Spencer without her knowing that it's fake and without him knowing at all. Why do so many romances start out really well and devolve into a tangle of miscommunication and stupidity?
