Puede contener spoiler pero no me importa de lo mala que me pareció.

Si bien me ha arrancado una que otra risa al principio, este libro me resultó deplorable.
Las situaciones me parecen inverosímiles: la vigilancia de ella en globo aerostático, su investigación, la posterior "charla" con Alex en el globo, su noche de pasión tramada por las tías mediante el uso del licor, la escena del casamiento al final...

No sentí la menor "química" en la pareja: ella se enamora, no sé cómo, a pesar de su opini

Cute story, with an attractive and likeable main couple. However, some elements of the novel are decidedly anacronistic; the behaviour and manner in which the characters address each other would have been extremely shocking in Regency England, to say the least. For example, there is absolutely no way Meredith and Alexander would have addressed each other by first name, nor would she have shortened it to "Alex", even if he had suggested it. Caskie seems to have lifted the plot for a contemporary ...more

From Amazon:

"A rake cruelly shattered Meredith Merriweather's dreams of romance. To ensure that no woman will ever be forced to suffer a similar fate, Meredith has been conducting "scientific experiments" on the ton's most notorious rakes with the intention of publishing a guidebook for young ladies. Meredith has one subject left before her work will be complete: Alexander Lamont, Lord Lansing. While rumor has it that the infamous charmer is now the picture of decorum, Meredith simply refuses to

Kathryn Caskie me ha sorprendido.
Una historia entretenida, divertida y bien llevada con unos personajes extrañables y, en parte, otros detestables - cofcofBethAugustinecofcof. Es una lastima que haya empezado esta trilogía de manera salteada pero eso es un detalle menor. Pero no dudo en descartar en leer otro libro de la autora.

P.D: Un detalle que no puedo pasar por alto y no por ello tuvo que ver con la puntuación final que le dí al libro (NO Y NO)... Me chirrió mucho parte de la traducción d

I'm giving three stars because I continued to love Alexander throughout the entire story. He was consistent and charming. I can understand his attraction to Meredith. She was freshly guileless in a comedic way. What I didn't like was how convoluted the story became with the frugal but apparently wealthy suitor, Mr. Chillton, and the invidious friend, Beth. These characters worked their way out of the story eventually but were not necessary to the relationship between Alexander and Meredith. The ...more

In the opening chapters the hero was shown to be shallow, self-centered and callous. The heroine was headstrong, willful and silly/stupid. Scanned to finish. Very strange references to Scottish highland clan and tattoos.

One hilarious and witty plot twist had the hero's staff composed of identical brothers that were nicknamed One, Two and eventually Three and Four.

There are other more engaging historical romances with better plots, characters and dialogue ie. Loretta Chase, Tessa Dare, Elizabeth

I keep asking myself why these authors keep writing the same thing over and over in their books. I understand repeating something but it starts to get old page after page. This story was well written and had excellent characters but the leading lady for being a smart gel was a whiner. I liked the reforming of the rake and the challenges that were put in his way. Other than the same line over and over the story moved at a great pace, lots of little twists and the elderly aunts were great!

There are many comical overtones to this book, which help it along - Meredith hiding in a hot air balloon being one of them. Meredith decides to write a guide book on rakes. Alexander Lamont, Lord Lansing, will be upon whom she models the book. The way he maneuvers the wedding is also a bit "twisted" but has its comical relief.

Loved it! It's so witty, charming & fun read!
Me sorprendio gratamente esta autora, resulta una historia entretenida, divertida y fácil de leer solo me molesto algo que más de uno intentara manipular a la protagonista.

Typical Regency historical. Typical rakish hero, impulsive & stubborn heroine. Enjoyable book, no real romantic scenes, not a keeper.
