:) muito bom!
de uma forma subtil, a historia contem elementos que nos fazem "ver" a sociedade real da epoca.
a realidade não é bem, ou melhor, não é so uma historia romantica de um casal que se conhece e se apaixona.
nuances reais, num contexto realista.
foi de facto uma surpresa esta historia e que recomendo a quem gosta do genero.

Anna is a bluestocking and a very gifted writer. As a woman who has to work hard she owns a publication and challenges the Tory spokesperson, Lord Treybourne by writing essays as AJ Goodfellow. David is under pressure from his father to best the woman. The romance is minimal and I felt a lot of the book is set-up. It's the introduction to the couple but they never seem to get far emotionally. Anna is painted as a veritable saint, she's perfect in every way and she never acknowledges her own mist ...more

The Earl’s Secret

What? Where did this one come from? How does it fit into The MacLerie Clan series? This one came out of left field and I couldn’t figure out why it was included in the series. It was a good book and I really enjoyed it once I got over the shock of how different it was from the previous three books but I still don’t know if it should have been included in the series.

Everything was different about it, the tone, the setting and even the century it was set in. At first, I thought I

"David guardò la moglie, consapevole che gli aveva insegnato e offerto più di quanto potesse fare lui, ma giurò che ogni giorno, per tutto il resto della vita, avrebbe tentato di ricambiarla."

Carino, anche se abbastanza classico come trama e personaggio, l'ho preso in scambio e lo rimetto in circolazione però perché ho scoperto che fa parte di una saga di cui non possiedo gli altri volumi.

Who doesn't like a story where two essayists are at eachother's throats on paper, unknowingly falling in love while they're at it? Terri Brisbin's novels are always a highlight for me and this one is as well. Compared to some of her other novels the characters are less interesting, but the story and the writing are amazing. Especially the essay we get towards the end 'blood will tell'.

Aivot narikkaan ja ruusunpunaiset silmälasit esiin- sarjaa. En minä varmaan muista tästä mitään huomenna, mutta ei tarvitsekaan. Sopivan viihdyttävä lukaisu näin kylmänä syyspäivänä.
