Ridiculous. Like some hybrid of Elsie Dinsmore and the Scarlet Pimpernel. Ok, I think I'm just going to stop reading this. I probably would have enjoyed this book in all of its ridculousness when I was about 16. Now it is just a waste of my time. See the below comments for proof.
"I can imagine that you try Richard's patience somewhat...happily, your impetuosity in no way disturbs me." p. 38.
lol. This quote absolutely kills me. "She noted the firm, beautifully curved mouth, the aristocratic nose and delicately pencilled eyebrows, with a little thrill. The duel had set her every nerve tingling; she was filled with admiration for her preserver, and the sight of his sensitive, handsome countenance did nothing to dispel that admiration." p. 74.
