Book Description

1 April 2002 Pleasures Trilogy
People magazine named Eloisa James' novel Midnight Pleasures “Page Turner of the Week” and raved “Romance writing does not get much better than this.” Now the acclaimed author returns with another sumptuous tale of passion and misadventure in Regency England....

Gabrielle Jerningham cherishes the portrait of her betrothed, the perfect Peter Dewland...until she meets his commanding older brother Quill. But it is Peter to whom she has been promised. And how can she possibly transform her voluptuous, outspoken self into the poised gentlewoman Peter requires?

When Gabby’s shocking décolletage plunges to her waist at her first ball, Peter is humiliated. But Quill comes to the rescue, to the peril of his heart. An accident years before has left Quill plagued by headaches--the kind that grows more excruciating with strenuous exercise. Needless to say, this hardly bodes well for siring progeny. But the very sight of Gabby leaves Quill breathless. One forbidden kiss and Quill vows to have her, headaches--and Peter--be damned! But it will take a clever man--and a cleverer woman--to turn the tables on propriety and find their way to true love....

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming and Witty 13 Nov 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
She is a young lady who talks to much, he is a man who says very little. She has been brought over from India to be his brothers bride, he is unable to fullfill 'husbandly' duties. Yet why can't they keep their hands off each other?
In this charming story, third in the 'Pleasure' series we catch up with Quill (from the earlier two books) and Gabby the heiress from India. Quill, real name Erskine, eldest son of the Viscount Dewland, to all outwardly appearances seems to have made a recovery from the terrible riding accident which looked likely to leave him bedridden forever. However the head injury has left him with terrible three day migraines whenever he engages in repeatative motion, which puts all forms of 'riding' firmly out of the picture.
Into his life steps Gabrielle Jerningham, the bride that could have been his but is now intended for his younger brother. Peter, the younger brother is dedicated to the pursuit of fashion, he dresses well, always behaves to perfection and is not that 'interested' in young ladies. He has little use for a wife fullstop, let alone one who loves to chatter, doesn't bother with fashion, has uncontrolable hair and couldn't behave like a 'proper' young lady if her life depended on it.
The ensuing story of two differing personalities realising that they are in the end the perfect match for each other and the quest for a cure for Quill add a depth to this story rarely seen in these types of novels. This couple disagree, they get annoyed with each other, they see and accept each others failings; Gabby will not let Quill get away with hiding behind silences, Quill finds her habit of telling white lies highly annoying, but as they pass through bereavement, into marriage and through sub-plots invloving Indian princes and the East India Company they remain very real, very charming characters.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enchanting Humor 27 Nov 2002
By Farfalla VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This tells the story of an heiress from India, Gabrielle, whoes father is a sometime missionary, who does not believe that ladylike behaviour is necessary or practical; and Quill, the eldest son of a Viscount who after a horseriding accident suffers from migrianes after indulging in repetative motion. Quill has declared to his father that he will not be able to father children, and so leaves it to his younger brother Peter to continue the family, before ever meeting Gabrielle.
Unfortunately, Peter seems to think of fashion first, last and always, and Gabby is NOT fashionable. Quill however thinks that she is wonderful, but she is now afianced to his younger brother, so he tries not to do anything about it. He also thinks that marriage to him would be unfair to Gabby, since he persits in thinking that their is no cure for his migraines, and the only thing that he can do is avoid the activities that bring them on.
This situration can not last, and eventually, Quill is persuaded to marry Gabby, partially by his brother who refuses to marry her after the scandle of having the top of her dress come down at her first ball. Quill and Gabby then have to deal with each other, each other's foibles, and how to get rid of the migraines.
As always, there is a well drawn cast of secondary characters, and return performances by some of the characters from James' previous novels. I look forward to reading her next offering.

3.0 out of 5 stars A nice little read. 28 Dec 2012
By Lori
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I think it is posssibly just that I have recently read a lot of Eloisa James and so found this book a bit tired. The actual story is a bit different I suppose what with the headaches Quill suffers, but the rest of it was a little unbelievable. Although I did enjoy it, I thinl I shall give the author a break for a little bit.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable 8 Dec 2009
Format:Mass Market Paperback
gabrielle is engaged to peter dewland but when she arrives from india ahe is met by his brother erskine. immediately there is a spark between them and they become quite taken wih each other. my only criticism is that the illness or malady which erskine suffers from is a little far fetched or not really believable so kind of takes away from the tension/excitement of the book.
