The more I think about this book, the less I can figure out what the hell I thought of it.
On the one hand, it's a Laura Lee Guhrke. She has become one of my "go-to" authors. The Guilty series was outstanding, Abandoned at the Altar is shaping up to be even better, and the first book in this series, And Then He Kissed Her, is one of my absolute favourites.
The writing is great, the H/h are well drawn, and the cast of supporting characters (especially the ladies at the boarding house) are ...more

However, the author really turned it around for me. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed both characters at the end, and how glad I was to see them fall in love. I almost put the book down because of my frustrations, but I'm glad I finished it.

Rhys de Winter is a Duke who is penniless and carrying a lot of emotional family baggage. He met Prudence at a ball when she was working as a seamstress repairing gowns. He was a hero to her that night and he was very attracted to her. Unfortunately he may be a rake, bu ...more
Unfortunately the ending rather disappointing, and very abrupt. I wished that St. Cyres did more groveling. And I felt that St. Cyres' childhood nightmare didn't get more exploration that it deserve.
However I give it 3,5 stars, for despite it's flaws, I still find it quite e ...more
Je n'ai rien ressenti de spéciale par rapport à cette lecture. Ni déception ni coup de cœur juste un livre de plus de lu.
Nous faisons la rencontre de Prudence Bosworth,jeune couturière dans le besoin. Innocente, naïve, douce qualifierai très bien ce personnage. Je l'ai bien aimé mais elle ne m'a rien fait ressentir de plus.
Elle fera la rencontre du Duc de St-Cyres. Un personnage que j'ai apprécié dés qu'il a fait son apparition mais quand j'ai découvert ...more
He needs money as soon as possible and she has it. It's a bonus that he wants her the first time he laid his eyes on her. She thinks he's a hero,a prince-or rather a duke-who would fall inlove to an ordinary girl like her and he used that to let her fall on the trap. She said yes when he asked her to marry h ...more
So as not to give anything away, we'll leave it at that.
Prudence-I like her. I really, really did. She was strong, she was loyal and she knew what she wanted from life.
Rhys-at first, I liked him. But then he became really underhanded in his dealings with Pru and that totally turned me off. I couldn't forget his deception after he was forgiven.
yaaa.... seperti seri yang pertamanya ini buku bagus bgt.
awalnya ga ngeh kalo ini sambungannya And then he kissed her.
soalnya pas awal2 ga gitu diceitain kainnya ama tokoh2 di buku 1
eh, pas akhir2, loh kok, nongol emma ama harry? pas diinget2 ooo iya ya, dulu kan emma tinggal di flat yang sama ama prudence.
Sayang bgt tokohnya di sini SBM :(
