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
it doent need any more comments...
or maybe it does...

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
No es de los mejores de la Quinn, pero tiene algunas escenas divertidas, sobre todo al principio. Me ha gustado el personaje de ella, aunque engaña un poco y pensamos que es una mujer independiente, en el fondo le falta seguridad. Un personaje complejo.
Como la mayoría de los de esta mujer, el enamoramiento es muy rápido
The story starts off just around the same time as the previous one has ended, where our hero Dunford -whose first name is a well known mystery- receives news that a distant r...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
Както бе споменато предпрочитно, имах големи очаквания за тази книга и с бях подготвила за един грандиозен финал на трилогията. Още от анотацията ми хареса идеята за малката дивачка, която иска да бие шута на Дън. Даже се бях нагласила за нещо а ла „Укротяване на опърничавата“ (което със сигурност е най- любимото ми Шекспирово нещо).
Но в това отношение останах разочарована. Не получих своята Беатриче.
Хенри наистина е сладка героиня, особено...more
We have already come to know Dunford from the previous books. He is a charmer and a rake. Determined never to marry, he inherits a title and a small estate in Cornwall from a very distant unknown relative. He also finds out he has become the guardian of Henrietta, known as Henry, who had been taken in by the previous owners when she was 8. She was the niece of the lady of the estate who had died six y...more
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
I really enjoy Julia Quinn overall, she creates engaging characters and her d...more
I am a sucker for Pygmalion themed books and it was a pure delight following Henry's journey from independent tomboy to equally independent Incomparable beauty. I loved loved the interaction with the ton. And I loved the side characters and...more
I already really liked Dunford in the previous two books, however in the beginning slightly different, so I fresumed that I might not like the book as much as I have predicted. However, did turn out to be amazingly amazing, interesting and romantic.
The last 100 pages are an even bigger wow! It was intense in a way, but not too much to the point where it was bothring!
One: You have cried incessantly for more than one chapter;
Two: You can feel what the hero and heroine felt whether feeling of sadness, betrayal, and guilt or the joy, love, and faith that bubbles up inside them;
Lastly: When you are willing to give a novel a million stars if possile, just to express how much you loved what you read.
Certainly, certainly SPLENDID!

Dunford sebenernya udah bikin aku pingin tau ceritanya dari sebelum-sebelumnya,secara dia itu karakter pendukung yang sangat memukau, sangat baik, dan kayaknya orangnya supel, tapi kok nggak nikah-nikah? Emang cewek apa sih yang dia inginkan? Padahal dia kan udah ngicipin semua cewek cantik? Ya kan? TUh, dunford ngg...more
Dunford is truly one of my favorite HR heroes & so I was slightly disappointed with the storyline in this one - although I think his heroine was absolutely perfect for him! The misunderstanding plot wasn't my favorite though. :(
I don't think this was the best of JQ's series, but certainly worth reading!
This book had a fantastic start. Henry comes up with all sorts of plans to make Dunford think that country life is not for him. I fou...more
