    A charming and delightfully easy read This is probably the first book I actually laughed out loud at.At first I was very frustrated by the heroine because she describes herself as unapproachably intelligent, but in reality she is rather ditsy Once I got over my expectations for her to be intelligent I found her hilarious I think we all have that friend that would describe themselves as an intellectual even though they would lose their head if it weren t attached to their neck Georgiana is A charming and delightfully easy read This is probably the first book I actually laughed out loud at.At first I was very frustrated by the heroine because she describes herself as unapproachably intelligent, but in reality she is rather ditsy Once I got over my expectations for her to be intelligent I found her hilarious I think we all have that friend that would describe themselves as an intellectual even though they would lose their head if it weren t attached to their neck Georgiana is truly a breath of fresh air for the reader and for the hero of the story Johnathon There is almost nothing she does or says that couldn t be described as charmingly absurd I was intrigued by Johnathon and his history and motivations I thought he was a strong character and loved his chemistry with Georgiana and how their relationship developed The mystery isn t in who the thief is but in how Georgiana finds out and what she decides to do about it There is some very light sex, nothing explicit, but enough to be sweetly steamy I have read everything by Deborah Simmons, she is one of my all time favorite authors, and this is probably my 2nd or 3rd favorite WARNING there is sex in this book, it is not erotica, but enough to be a steamy hot adult romance Please do not read if that offends you Romance 5 5 Steaminess 3 5 Explicitness 2.5 5https bigcomfychair.wordpress.com

    First off I just have to say I ll be damned if I can figure out why I liked this story So I guess I am saying be prepared for a confusing review.Haha I like how Georgiana says Ashdowne might be the healthiest man she had ever seen Is this the regency equivalent of sexy New word alert Botheration Ooooh I m so excited to use this word in conversation now At the beginning I saw Georgiana as very immature in her actions and thoughts So na ve A little bit of is she really that stupid Bu First off I just have to say I ll be damned if I can figure out why I liked this story So I guess I am saying be prepared for a confusing review.Haha I like how Georgiana says Ashdowne might be the healthiest man she had ever seen Is this the regency equivalent of sexy New word alert Botheration Ooooh I m so excited to use this word in conversation now At the beginning I saw Georgiana as very immature in her actions and thoughts So na ve A little bit of is she really that stupid But towards the end of the book, I felt a shift towards my feelings for this character Georgiana still acted blonde many times but she became likeable Sweetly naive maybe I don t know but when I started to accept Georgiana for how she was I began to enjoy the bookI definitely felt like there were times that Ashdowne was in over his head I liked how Ashdowne accepted Georgiana for who she was and just rolled with the punches and her wild antics.I said at the beginning I liked this book and really didn t know why It is completely different from the dark books and characters I usually lean towards This was very fanciful with sugary story and characters However the last 60pgs or so of the story was really good and intense I feel like I was kind of captured by the characters I mean how can anyone not fall in love with how Ashdowne allowed Georgiana to be herself and helped her follow her dreams.So anyway meh to the whole storyline of Georgiana searching for who stole Lady Culpepper s emeralds and bravo to the chemistry and relationship between Georgiana and Ashdowne Definitely saved the story for me They were fun characters to read about and played off each other spectacularly This book is definitely a fun romp read, some funny situations but don t expect much of an engaging storyline I wish Georgiana and Ashdowne were put into asupporting story However, as a couple they were a blast to read about.I guess my final word is this book is a curiously charming story about how it is ok to be yourself and being lucky enough to find the hero to accept you just the way you are.I realize I didn t say much about the story but really it s just Georgiana thinking she can become a Bow Street Runner and Ashdowne doing his damnedest to keep her out of trouble I would probably compare this book to the movie The Princess Bride loved that movie Silly but romantic.B

    This book is a delight Several times, from chapter three onwards, I laughed out loud at the events and scenes, and for the most part I just sat back and enjoyed the ride I guessed very easily who the culprit was, of course, but that wasn t really the point Georgiana was a delightful heroine, full of fizz, and enthusiastic to a fault In fact, a lot of the fun of the book came through her over enthusiastic approach to investigating the theft of a rather unpleasant lady s necklace She found a This book is a delight Several times, from chapter three onwards, I laughed out loud at the events and scenes, and for the most part I just sat back and enjoyed the ride I guessed very easily who the culprit was, of course, but that wasn t really the point Georgiana was a delightful heroine, full of fizz, and enthusiastic to a fault In fact, a lot of the fun of the book came through her over enthusiastic approach to investigating the theft of a rather unpleasant lady s necklace She found a worthy hero in Ashdowne and the roller coaster they took us on was wonderful.I have just a couple of gripes One is common to a lot of Mills and Boon books, and that s the cardboard cut out nature of many of the secondary characters Lady Culpepper was ONLY unpleasant Georgiana s family were ONLY stupid I don t want to spend too much time with these characters when we can be getting on with the real story of the book, but I do like to feel they are there asthan just window dressing I ve read other books by Deborah Simmons and the minor characters in those were realistic and rounded, which made these all thedisappointing, and lost her one star.The other gripe is a personal preference We didn t enter the hero s head until Chapter Three, by which time I was beginning to fear the entire book would be told only from the heroine s point of view I don t enjoy books that only give us her point of view without his, and I was on the verge of putting it down and finding something else to read when we finally got to him The only reason I d waited so long was because I was reading in the bath and couldn t just go and get another book Leaving it so late to go to him lost the other star.Once we got over that hump, though, I was thoroughly entertained, and I would recommend this book to anyone wanting a lighthearted and uplifting read

    I read this straight after The Devil Earl and I enjoyed it muchI loved the hero and I loved the relationship that develops between him and the heroine as she attempts to solve the mystery of the missing necklace In particular, several parts of the book made me laugh out loud But it wasn t perfect In particular, the heroine at the beginning of the book says she is a devotee of Plato, giving the impression that her methods of deduction are all about logic And then she goes on to try and I read this straight after The Devil Earl and I enjoyed it muchI loved the hero and I loved the relationship that develops between him and the heroine as she attempts to solve the mystery of the missing necklace In particular, several parts of the book made me laugh out loud But it wasn t perfect In particular, the heroine at the beginning of the book says she is a devotee of Plato, giving the impression that her methods of deduction are all about logic And then she goes on to try and solve the crime based solely on intuition, leg work and things she was fortunate enough to overhear She complains that no one takes her seriously I had trouble taking her seriously I was also fairly ropable when at the end of the book view spoiler she decides that her life long dream to be a famous detective and be known for her expertise in solving mysteries was completely satisfied by being respected by the man she loved Look, I have love and it s great But it s not the be all and end all I hate to see women in books put down their dreams because a guy enjoys their company But it s completely cool, gals, because there will be heaps of domestic mysteries for her to solve at his estate In the very last paragraph there s a suggestion that she will continue doing what she does, but I felt sad that she seemed to give up her ambition hide spoiler In addition, it was frustrating how she completely ignores the obvious solution for about half the book But the problems weren t overwhelming and I enjoyed this for being sweet and for having the relationship develop because he found her unusual and started wanting to make her happy by helping her achieve her goals, not just because he wanted to see her with her clothes off A nice romance

    Incredibly boring The book is three times as long as it needs to be since there s no mystery and no suspense If the characters had beeninteresting or better developed, they could ve compensated for the plot or the serious lack thereof At the very least, I might ve found Georgiana s pratfalls and Ashdowne s exasperation as amusing as the narrative claimed they were Instead, I spent two thirds of the book convinced that Ashdowne would regret his imminent marriage to Georgiana because sh Incredibly boring The book is three times as long as it needs to be since there s no mystery and no suspense If the characters had beeninteresting or better developed, they could ve compensated for the plot or the serious lack thereof At the very least, I might ve found Georgiana s pratfalls and Ashdowne s exasperation as amusing as the narrative claimed they were Instead, I spent two thirds of the book convinced that Ashdowne would regret his imminent marriage to Georgiana because she isn t clever It s impossible that she could appear to be since the culprit is obvious to the audience and the plot requires her to miss clues from the outset I never bought into Ashdowne s attraction and I didn t have much interest in him as an individual The story becameengaging when Georgiana starts to solve the mystery and with something worthwhile to do, she improves as a character, but she bears too little resemblance to herself Ashdowne would ve been fine, except view spoiler that he has to tie himself in knots to fall for Georgiana and he loses his most compelling qualities as a result The recognition of his moral failings didn t ring true to me because there s no rational or philosophical explanation for it hide spoiler With the exception of Savonierre, the side characters weren t any better and I suspect Savonierre would lose his lustre if Deborah Simmons actually explored his story in a book
