Other than the fact that you could make a drinking game out of every reading of "...all but..." it's a pretty fun book. Very steamy. It was terribly annoying though, it was nearly every three pages she had to use that catch phrase, "..she all but threw herself," "...he all but this," "she was all but that," I all but threw the book out of the freakin' window.

Boring, and full of (to me) silly and confusing dialogue.

«Cio che non sapete e che dare amore e un rischio. Accettare l'amore altrui e un rischio anche maggiore, che solo i più coraggiosi possono affrontare.»

Come spesso succede nel tentativo di creare una protagonista di carattere si esagera trasformando la determinazione in cocciutaggine, il coraggio in sventatezza e in generale trasformando la caparbia Miss Toogood ne l'insopportabile Miss Toogood XD Tra l'altro per essere la figlia di un parroco vissuta da sempre in un paesino è fin troppo spudorat

I would almost swear that I have read this before but since it was still on the shelf amongst my other TBR books, I pulled it out a few days ago. If indeed I have already read it, apparently it did not make a huge impression on me at the time because nothing in it rang a bell. Cameron is a hit-or-miss author in my estimation. I have thoroughly enjoyed some of her historical fiction but I do not care for her contemporary books.

This story was somewhat formulaic (how much can one really change up e
Fleur Toogood has been charged with finding a good match. This involves being squired around town by Lord Dominic Elliot. He's not impressed with this but he is amused by her list of essential qualities. A list that Fleur is becoming to realise is difficult to find a man to match with. As time goes on she starts to realise that Dominic is probably as close to perfect as she is going to find.

It was entertaining and the two main characters caught my interest.

It was okay, overly long. If the book followed the teaser at the back, it would have been a fun light read. instead the teaser in the back was a mere subplot to the main story involving a weird drawn out serial virgin-ladies kidnapper that wasn't very mysterious, but did provide a steamy almost rape-like scene.

Credo sia uno dei pochi libri di cui posso dire che non mi ha convinto dall'inizio alla fine...
Trama assurda, scollegata nelle sue parti senza un senso logico...
Storia insulsa e senza senso..
Da dimenticare...
It had its moments, but they were too few. I felt as if I were reading a good author who thought she could write a regency novel, but did not do her complete research first. Manners and language were way off. But, it was a good story.

The best part of this book was the last pages. I almost found myself wishing "The Cat" had gotten his way. I found the characters so sugary sweet it was almost nauseating. Thank goodness I have finished reading it never to be picked up again.
It's been a long while since I've read a good regency era romance. I loved the combination of mystery with romance in this book. It was a cute little story, a teeny bit predictable but still a page turning fun read.

It took me forever to get into it...I'm glad I finished it, but it was a very slow start...the end was good.

If it would have been possible to give less then one, I would have.
This was an awful book, the only reason I finished it was I was camping and few other choices for books.

Just OK for me.
A little predictable and the heroine is an idiot. Ugh I cant stand characters like her.
