Of all the rakes in London, Robert Mallory, the Marquis of Shelton had earned the dubious distinction of being the COLLECTOR OF HEARTS. A love ‘em and leave ‘em man, he took what he wanted and moved on, the scoundrel. Naturally, when he set his sights on the beautiful Arabella Fleming, imagine the damage to his ego when she refuses to be swept up in his “charm.”

Arabella and her twin sister, Isabella are determined to marry for love and they are determined that this Season will be their chance to

I do enjoy a good historical, and a rake and this one kept me turning the pages, but is Robert Mallory, Marquis of Shelton really a rake, his life is about to be turned upside down when he meets the beautiful, delectable twin Arabella Fleming in her first season, sit back and enjoy the ride as I did.

Arabella and her twin Isabell are set to have their first season both hoping to meet and fall in love with the man they can spend the rest of their lives with, but when Arabella meets the notorious C

Loved the book. The story of Arabella and Robert is a good read and I enjoyed the bantering that occurred between the two of them. He was so determined to seduce her, then he was determined to save her from rakes like himself and then he falls in love with her but does not know how to control or accept these feelings. When she tells him she loves him, he does not believe himself worthy of her love but he can’t distance himself from her. There is a HEA but there is a lot of drama before this happ ...more

I was excited to read Collector of Hearts and wanted to like it - but I just didn't. Maybe it was me and not the book but the story dragged. Robert - said Collector of Hearts - is just an unrepentant rake who crosses over into being a jerk. He isn't a rake with a good heart that only needs to find his love, he's just a jerk.
Arabella's character is much better than Robert, but I didn't see her as clever. She was mostly just whiny. She seems about ready to have a fit of the vapors at any point.

I loved the Collector of Hearts. It is a great story of twins at a gathering where Lord Shelton otherwise known as "the Collector of Hearts" first sees them. Isabelle is funny and sweet but doesn't have the fire that Arabella has. After Lord Shelton makes some remarks that she doesn't care for, she tells him off. Seeing Arabella and keeping the other young men away from her is his plan In the meantime, Isabelle also meets someone. It is a great story with misunderstandings and duels but the girl ...more

Arabella is a feisty character full of wit and stubborn determination. Upon sighting Robert they immediately engage in a battle of wills that continues throughout the entire book. This sets up for a very interesting set of circumstances full of humor and unexpected circumstances. Eventually they realize their hearts cannot beat without each other and start out on their journey of happily ever after.

I received this novel from net galley and the publisher for an honest review. Thank you!!
I enjoyed this novel. It had a good plot, with some twists I did not even expect, well written characters, and romance all around.
Arabella and Isabelle Fleming finally get to have a London season, even though their parents are not exactly keeping an eye on them. They are identical twins and both agree to marry for love. When Arabella meets Robert Mallory, Marquis of Shelton, the "Collecter of Hearts", she se

This is sweet, dramatic, amusing and entertaining. Robert is determined, bold, c*cky and stubborn. Bella is spunky, confident and caring. Robert is fascinated by Bella after she denies him, he see her as a challenge, and decides to teach her a lesson about life. Robert ignites Bella's fire by assuming that he can make her fall for him, and she decides to play him game, and win. Neither imagined that they would fall in love, and both fought it. The relationship is intense and very entertaining, f ...more

* Book received from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review *

Despite the fact that I requested the book from Netgalley, I didn't expect a terrific story mainly due to the title. However, I got hooked and discovered a new to me author, yay !
I didn't like Shelton at first, but he grew on me. I loved that Arabella fell for him in spite of knowing who and what he was yet gave him the brush many, many times. And even when she told him she loved him, she didn't relent on what she wanted. I guess h

A very enjoyable historical romance. With a good plot and likable characters to keep you entertained, this book kept my interest well. It was fun to witness the interaction between Arabella and Robert. As the simmering attraction pulled them toward each other they both fought it until they couldn't. With a good amount of humor to balance out the drama and sweetness, this book is a good read. This is my honest, voluntary review.

This book's a terrific Regency romance. It's fabulously fun, then turns serious when the stakes rocket up impossibly high. I loved Cassandra Samuels' humour, her wonderful characters, the emotion and the romantic hearts she gives her hero and heroine - and as a bonus, the hero's best friend and the heroine's sister! Thankyou Cassandra for such a wonderful read.

Robert Mallory, Marquis of Shelton, had fallen in love with Catherine, as did his friend Lord Faulkner. They had a duel and his friend did not make it. He swore he would never love another woman, his name around the ton was Collector of Heart.s. Women swooned around him, he spent a lot of time climbing in and out of beds and duels.
Isabella and Arabella Fleming, wre twins , this was their first season and they were excited.
I loved the way the two girls depended on each other, they were inseparab

Cassandra Samuel's mother always said she should have been born in the 1800s. However, she was born in the 1970s instead. But she was not discouraged by all the corduroy and dodgy hair do's. She decided if she couldn't live in the Regency period she would write about it instead.

Cassandra cut her romance reading teeth on Jane Austen when she read Pride and Prejudice in high school. It was the begi
