The matchmaker's ultimate challenge…

Lady Irene Wyngate swore she'd never marry, keeping suitors at bay with her caustic tongue. But there was one man she couldn't scare: Gideon, long-lost heir to the Earl of Radbourne. He had been kidnapped as a child and grew up tough on the London streets. And though he had been restored to his family, he was still more at home in gambl

Ευχάριστο βιβλίο. Ότι πρέπει για να χαλαρώσεις, ακατάλληλο όμως για όσες (εννοείται απευθύνεται σε γυναίκειο κοινό) έχουν υψηλά λογοτεχνικά κριτήρια. Έχει δράση, μυστήριο, -φυσικά- πολύ ρομάντζο και εξαιρετική χημεία ανάμεσα στους πρωταγωνιστές.

I honestly thought going into this that I'd have to endure scene after scene of Irene spouting her feminist ideals about the rights women should have, but that's not at all the case. I love this quaint unorthadox romance match between the main characters Irene and Gideon. Irene was a person who was determine to remain a spinster for valid reasons. Gideon who was kidnapped at 4 years old and grew up as a poor urchin later to gain his own personal wealth using the hard knock methods of survival an ...more

Muy bueno el romance, mucha química entre los dos, interacciones hilarantes y originales ademas de que el argumente es super interesante y te hace dudar de vez en cuando (¿es verdad que Gideon fue secuestrado?, ¿como paso?, etc). Y me encantó que la protagonista es extremadamente racional algo con lo que coincido mucho, me sentí muy identificada.

During the first few chapters, I came very close to setting this book down and never picking it up again. Lady Irene Wyngate is determined not to marry, and insists on making this clear to everyone. It’s great that she’s an independent heroine, but I just couldn’t envision some woman talking to the ton at a ball and spouting out why she would never marry. While I liked that she was a modern, independent thinker, her talking openly about it didn’t jive with her deire to be considered proper.

Honestly this book was bearable at most. I read The Courtship Dance a while back and that bored me to tears. i had been hoping that this book might be a little different but it was just as boring. I mean there was nothing wrong with it precisely... it was just so BLAND. I can't see myself ever picking a book up by this author again.

2.5 stars rounded up to 3.
This the usual story of the determined spinster who ends up changing her mind when she meets The One. My first book by this author, and she writes well, including a little murder mystery for fun.

What I found strange about this book is that the only insight I had into a character's mind and thoughts came from the heroine, Irene. The story was told completely from her POV, and I could only guess at what the hero and the secondary characters were feeling because we are ne

ok la trama è sempre quella..lei single che non vuole sposarsi e poi incontra lui..e cambia idea.

però l'ho trovato divertente, romantico e con un pò di mistero al punto giusto.

si lei è troppo indiepndente per essere uan vera dama dell'epoca..ma i sui battibecchi con lui sono stati davvero esilaranti.

La parte più divertente? ovviamente lei che si ostina a dire che non prova interesse per lui e poi appena lo vede va in brodo di giuggiuole..e si fa un saccodi storie mentali..vi giuro sono troppo d
