Jane Feather je známa tým, že vo svojich dielach sa venuje politickým témam. Politike sa nevyhla ani v tejto knihe. Kým vo svojich ostatných príbehoch sa zameriavala skôr na intrigy na kráľovskom dvore alebo riešila vojnové obdobie za Napoleona, v tomto románe sa zameriava na práva žien. Z knihy číha feminizmus, ženská inteligencia a túžba po rovnosti a emancipácii.

Hlavná hrdinka je sufražetka ako bič. Bojuje za práva žien ako levica, i keď v danej dobe to nebolo vôbec jednoduché. Spolu so sest
This is my first book by this author. It's terrific in so many ways. The story takes place in 1906 Edwardian England, and is the first in a series about three sisters. Constance, the heroine and eldest sister, is a suffragette. She is mature, fiercely intelligent, and passionate about her cause. Max, the hero, is an up and coming member of Parliament, as well as a member of the inner circle of the Prime Minister. Max, like the PM, is opposed to granting women the vote, and they are looking for w ...more

I went on a Jane Feather reading kick at one point and now I have a hard time remembering which ones I read. I remember liking them, but I also remember that after a few books, they're pretty much the same book but with different characters - and in the case of the series, the characters aren't even significantly different. Therefore, they aren't memorable enough to remember details. But I did read them and like them. I'd say if you're looking for a romance to read by the pool or on the beach, t ...more

Constance Duncan may be the eldest of three sisters, but she has more important things on her mind than finding a husband--for herself, at any rate. Through the Personals services of her popular newspaper, The Mayfair Lady, Constance connects lonely hearts. But her own heart lies in her work, and nothing will distract her from it--until she finds herself irresistibly drawn to a man of disastrously different views. Max Ensor is a politician whose out-moded attitudes outrage her--even as his power ...more

Preachy. I'm a big time feminist. Nonetheless, I don't really want that to be the focus of a romance novel. In this book the author pits a suffragette against a man-of-his-times manly man. The result is that they spend a lot of time having distinctly unromantic arguments about politics. The heroine finds the hero's views repugnant and after that, it is hard for the reader to consider him much of a prize. Eventually I found that I didn't like either of them and couldn't care less whether they got ...more

Jadi ceritanya ada 3 bersaudara Constance, Prudence, Chastity yang bikin koran gosip kalangan atas gitu. Tapi isinya juga ada politik, kebetulan mereka bertiga ini pendukung supaya wanita diberi hak pilih. Terus, mereka ketemu Max, anggota parlemen yang anti sama kesetaraan hak antara pria dan wanita. Meskipun begitu, hubungan Max sama Constance jadi deket meskipun hanya sebatas hubungan fisik hahaha (you know lah. Berantem terus tapi akhirnya ya balik2 juga.

2.5. This book moved a little slow for me. It didn't help that I really didn't care for either of the main characters. They both were hypocrites. Here's hoping the next book in the series will be better.

Belum 100 halaman udah nyerah euy! Ternyata critanya emank gak menarik kayak sinopsisnya. Yeaaaahhh...ato mungkin daku yg gak berselera ama HR yg ada politik2nya ato emansipasi wanita, dan lain lain, dan lain lain.

I don't even think I hated this book, I just didn't fucking care. Neither party is particularly likable or loathsome. But it's the most ill-conceived and poorly thoughtout coupling I've read in a while. Not to mention there's zero spark between them.

First of all, there is no bachelor list in this book. There is a brief line in which one of Constance's sister suggests they compile a list of bachelors to help with their matchmaking business, which they don't start until almost halfway through the book, and which is all but completely tangential to the actual romance plot, but they never make such a list. The bachelor list is a lie.

Unfortunately, that sums up a lot of The Bachelor List . Duncan sisters Constance, Prudence, and Chastity are ta

Having accidentally read #2 in the series, I was a bit out of order. I'd already developed a fondness for the Duncan sisters, especially Prudence, the heroine of #2. This is Constance's story. She is the older Duncan sister whose fiance had died in battle. She is a suffragette like their late mother. Her romance with Max, a member of Parliament with opposite views, is interesting, but not as compelling as Prudence's story. I look forward to reading #3, Chastity's story soon.

2.5 stars

This one doesn't quite get a three, not because it was badly written, but because the romance honestly felt rather stale. The Duncan sisters, Constance, Prudence, and Chastity, are lovely characters and I had a good time watching them as they promoted women's rights and arranged more satisfactory marriages among their acquaintances. But the romance between Constance and Max Ensor felt like digressions from the main plot, and quite frankly I did not find Max very interesting or engaging.

Every time I read this book I feel like I ought to love it, but I don't. The setting is fantastic - it's set in the Edwardian era and the author does a good job of breathing life into the period. The heroines eat at Lyon's Coffee House, take trains to the country house, and worry over their father's desire for a motor car; they wear their hair in those poofy Gibson Girl hairdos and hang out with suffragettes. It doesn't feel like a repurposed regency - it definitely has a setting, and the author ...more
A new trilogy dealing with three bluestocking, suffragist sisters.

Setting: Edwardian England.

Heroine: Constance (Con) Duncan, the eldest of three sisters. Their mother was an intellectually independent woman, who died some years ago. Shortly after, their father began blowing the family's money, and he's just not willing to face facts. So while he's merrily spending away, the three sisters are at wit's end trying to find ways to recoup the losses. One thing they have going is a newspaper that t

Awalnya aku pikir buku ini jenis HisRom yang tumben nggak mengangkat kisah bangsawan. Lihat aja Tokohnya: Max Ensor, seorang politisi. Constance Duncan, seorang feminis yang menerbitkan surat kabar untuk memperjuangkan hak-hak wanita.

Tapi rupanya mereka memang bangsawan kok. Cuma bukan bangsawan kelas atas dengan gelar mentereng macam Duke, Marquiss, Viscount, dst.

Tokohnya lebih ke bangsawan biasa dan keluarga terhormat soalnya jarang disebut embel2 lord/lady dan gelar lainnya. Si Ensor gelarny

Lumayan bagus, sedikit membingungkan tapi menyenangkan.

Constance setengah mati membela hak-hak wanita. Meskipun itu artinya dia harus membuat koran ilegal yang mengecam pemerintah dan mengancam nama baik keluarganya. Dan niatnya itu semakin menggebu saat dia bertemu Max, seorang politisi yang enggan mendukung hak-hak wanita. Malah, Max berniat mempengaruhi Con agar berhenti membuat koran dan menjadi wanita pada umumnya. Tanpa Max sadari, Con berniat untuk merayunya agar memberikan suara..

This is the first book in a series about the Duncan sisters - this one featuring Constance Duncan. The sisters' mother, a remarkable blue-stocking and very intelligent woman, has died ... and the three sisters find themselves struggling to make ends meet, as their father handles finances in a very poor way. Scrambling for money, the sisters write a newspaper, The Mayfair Lady, get involved in a matchmaking service, dabble in politics, and support the rising women's movement of the time. In areas ...more

I truly loved this book. Constance is a strong-minded feminist, and Max is pretty realistic for a traditional Parliamentarian of his era: the early 1900s. The three sisters are suffragists, and after the passing of their mother are keeping their family finances in order by publishing Mayfair Lady anonymously. The Mayfair Lady is a newsletter originally published and offered for free by their mother about the suffragist movement. The sisters have included an advise column and society gossip to in ...more

Initially, The Bachelor List had a shaky start for me, but the characters, Constance, Prudence, and Chastity, started to bloom within the first ten or so pages. The book is set in one of my favorite time periods, but I’ve usually only read stories set in the United States so this was a delight. As the story developed, Con, Prue, Chas, Max, and the others became well-rounded, interesting, and distinct characters.

I loved the bond between Con and her sisters as well as that they were all suffragis

: The first in a new, late Victorian trilogy. Three sisters, raised by their suffragette-type mother, are trying to keep body and soul together and keep their father, who is some sort of nobility, but I can’t find out what, from discovering just how nearly impoverished they are. They make their money by publishing a gossip sheet for money, and by running a “go-between” matchmaking service. The eldest attracts the attention of a Member of Parliament and they have a rather stormy courtship. Good r ...more

Nah, yang ini meskipun HR british, sama seperti seratusan HR lain yang aku baca, tapi settingnya agak beda. Nggak tahu setting-nya tahun berapa tapi di sini sudah mulai marak gerakan yang mendukung emansipasi wanita dalam politik. Sudah ada mobil dan anggota House of Lords nggak didominasi bangsawan lagi. Mungkin ini termasuk steampunk kali ya. Critanya bagus sih. Aku suka perdebatan intelektual antara Constance dan Max (yang selalu ada setiap mereka bertemu), tapi HR tanpa virgin heroine kok ra ...more

Con, seorang debutan yang sudah cukup diambang garis umur pernikahan, memiliki karakter yang berkemauan keras, feminimisme, pandai melobi orang dan sayang kepada adik-adiknya.

karakter Con berbeda dari tokoh-tokoh wanita yang sering gw baca. menurut gw terlalu luas pemikiran Con sebagai wanita, dimana mengorbankan keperawanannya karena berpikir tidak akan menikah. Aneh tapi mungkin banyak yang seperti itu.

Lucu pertengkaran Max dan Con ketika pemikiran mereka berbeda antara 1 hal

Different time period, women's rights movement. Definitely an interesting, yet good choice. Constance was an intriquing character, but I still hoped to see more. Not as funny as to be expected based on the title. The romantic development is slow, but that's not a disadvantage. Finally, no love at first sight. That tends to get exasperating after a while.
The first in a series featuring three strong minded women trying to keep the family finances together. Set in 1906 in London, the story is fast moving and makes for a very entertaining read. I look forward to reading more by this author.

First and best of the series, with some unusual elements not found in most HR's. Heroine is not a virgin, late Victorian setting, and some real maturity among the characters.

I like reading a series and this was certainly worth continuing the series. The two characters who seemed like oil and water were interesting to watch. It was also satisfying to see the father finally realize his financial situation. His daughters were very loyal and devoted to their father.
