Product Description

Product Description

Roderick Gideon Tremayne, the recently appointed Duke of Wentworth, never expected to find himself in New York City, tracking down a mysterious map important to his late mother. And he certainly never expected to be injured, only to wake up with no memory of who he is. But when he sees the fiery-haired beauty who's taken it upon herself to rescue him, suddenly his memory is the last thing on his mind. Georgia Milton, the young head of New York's notorious Forty Thieves, feels responsible for the man who was trying to save her bag from a thief. But she's not prepared for the fierce passion he ignites within her. When his memory begins to return, her whole world is threatened, and Roderick must choose between the life he forgot and the life he never knew existed....

More About the Author

Delilah Marvelle spent her youth studying various languages, reading voraciously, and playing the pianoforte. She confesses that here ends the extent of her gentle breeding. She was a naughty child who was forever torturing her parents with countless adventures that they did not deem respectable. Confined to her room on many occasions due to these misadventures, she discovered the quill and its amazing power. Soon, to the dismay of her parents, she rather enjoyed being confined to her room and finished writing her first historical romance (which was a heart stopping 800 pages long...) at the age of 14. You can visit her at her website at www.DelilahMarvelle.com or her blog that explores the naughtier side of history at www.DelilahMarvelle.blogspot.com

4.0 out of 5 stars Passionate and Emotional 25 Mar 2013
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
One of my favourite things about this book is Delilah Marvelle's writing style, her romances are often grittier than the typical historical romance. They're certainly very passionate! And I love how one minute she can make me laugh, then I'm sobbing into my dressing gown... a lovely image, I know.

I tended to turn on and off with this story, a little bit. I enjoyed Georgia and Roderick/Robinson's (I'm just going to call him Robinson I think) meeting. It was flirtatious and his persistence and gentlemanly manner was sweet. When he suffers the loss of his memory, Georgia feels guilty and takes him under her wing, though it's clear he's from a different world than her. Robinson had a charming innocent quality, and was such a gentleman to her and all he met when he was staying with Georgia.

I liked Georgia, although I'll admit I didn't love her. She's sassy, witty, strong but with a heart of gold. She's grown up in poverty and lived with it her whole life. She's very admirable and dreams of heading west and starting a new life farming in Ohio. I feel like such a prude saying this, but she was so crass! I know, she's from the hard streets of poverty-stricken New York etc., and part of the charm is that she's very blunt- even so, I'd probably have liked her a bit more if she wasn't as full-on.

I loved Robinson. Although he's almost like a different person when he finally starts getting his memory back- but I liked Roderick (Robinson with his memory back) just as much! He loves Georgia too much to make her into someone she's not, and in the process make her miserable. He loves her enough to let go. Thankfully Georgia wouldn't leave his life without a fight!

I really enjoyed the section with the flashback of Robinson's life.

2.0 out of 5 stars meh 27 Aug 2012
By romance lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Skipping a summary, that's been done, so I'll jump right in.
My two star rating is based on:

1. I liked the very beginning of the book-up until the H/H just decide to get it on in an alleyway ONE DAY after knowing e/other.
2. I liked the NYC setting (I write my own romances set there, just not in this time period) and I could see there was some good research done.

Everything else doesn't deserve stars IMO. Why?
As I mentioned, Robinson (Roderick) and ummm (I forgot her name and I just read this book today) 'Heroine' don't allow the romantic tension to build for very long. We're supposed to believe that the only man she's been with was her first husband, who was 35 years older than she (Can I get an 'EW!'?) but yet she's down with some public copulation after knowing this guy she's not boarding for one day? And I use the term 'knowing' loosely as the man has amnesia!

I was so, so disappointed when that happened. 90% of my interest in the book just died. But I read on.

The book is laid out in 3 parts and they are actually segmented. I don't know- i just felt this was a little hard to swallow. Another review put it nicely- overambitious. Lady, this ain't Shakespeare you're writing.

The hero is TSTL. Anyone else think so? Here's how he thinks- *speaking to girl's stepson who is older than she is and is a KNOWN THIEF- "how are you. you ask for six dollars for 'protection'? well why not take the entire fortune in my pocket? it's not like I'll need it even though i have no idea who I am and I'm currently being boarded by a woman who is clearly poverty stricken. No, I insist you take all my money."
*on the street waiting for a bucket of water- "Why don't I pump water for 100 women I don't know until my hands bleed when I was only sent out her to get water for the woman I have instantly fallen in love with? And I won't stop till she comes and gets me. Then I'll smear blood all over her when we do it in the alley. Sexy times."

So soon enough (2 days in) the hero's daddy shows up with a bag of gold for the lady and orders to get his butt back to England. Then, we are treated to 1,000,000,000 pages of back story. OH JOY. Back story and info dumps are boring to us readers. because they already happened, there's no suspense, and our minds are still waiting for the story to resume, back in the present.

We get past that, finally. Then the hero vacillates between going through with his word to marry our crude street damsel and not wanting to marry her 'for her sake'. YAWN.

AND THEN girly (oh i am so bad with names.) comes up with the brilliant plan to make herself into a lady and pretend she's an heiress so she'll be accepted in London society.

OK so throughout the whole of the book she's crude, crass, independent, and likes who she is - not to mention her American dream of moving out west and getting a plot of her own land. All of those things kinda disappear so we could wrap this story up quickly and without interest or satisfaction.

All in all, I didn't care for the last 2/3 of this book. She's technically a good writer, I don't mind her gritty style, but this one fell short in the romance department.

5.0 out of 5 stars heart wrenching, nail-biting, funny and unbelievably passionate love story! 30 Mar 2012
By bookworm2bookworm - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Georgia Emily Milton is one awesome heroine! I just loved her enthusiasm and straight forward manner. She was one strong and formidable female.

The life she led in Five Points, one of the slums of New York in 1830 America, was not easy for our heroine. But then, nothing ever came easy for this young and beautiful, but poor widow.

She was picked out of a coal bin as a teenager by her beloved Raymond who already was a father of two boys. After his death, she gets a hold of a dream of owning her own property out west, in Ohio and she's determined to save every penny, nickel and dime to do what her Raymond taught her she had a right to want: the universe.

A dream she never dreamt, and is no dream at all but a reality was the one in which she meets an attractive and wealthy man who she thinks can only see her as a "one night commodity".

This man approaches her and she finds him attractive, but the voice inside is telling her, he's not for her and he never could or would be. However, our hero would not be deterred, and slowly he gets her to smile and they both start flirting with each other and out of the blue a kid steps in and nabs Georgia's reticule. As both give chaise after the thief, our hero is waylaid and knocked unconscious by an omnibus.

Georgia is filled with guilt as she later finds out that the man is now suffering from memory loss and the only name he remembers and wants to be called is-Robinson Crusoe.

As she and the doctor that's treating him are trying to find who he is, she has no choice but to take him home to her tenement apartment.

She's aware that even with his memory loss, this man will be like a fish out of water in her world at Five Points,

I loved the scene in the hospital, in which she `prepares' his clothes and `repairs' his appearance for `her neighborhood'.

`Robinson' felt very protective of this young woman who selflessly gave him protection and security, when he felt most vulnerable and lost. His attraction to her was instantaneous, but he tried very hard to act a gentleman and he might have made it, if our heroine hadn't been one force of nature! One more thing I loved from the first scene to the last was the dialogue between the two! It made me laugh out loud and cry!

Ms. Marvelle gave me a romance that was scorching hot, yet tender. The attraction and the chemistry between the two sizzled and the love scenes were very sensual and steamy. She also took me on a journey from the slums of America to the high society of London and I enjoyed every minute of it!

I am thrilled to give this book my five quills and I'll never forget this story that takes two people who can't be more different in every way, yet their love and passion for each other was limitless and able to bridge every obstacle thrown their way.

Are you ready for a heart wrenching, nail-biting, funny and unbelievably passionate love story? If you are, grab yourself a copy and enjoy `Forever and a Day'.

I reviewed this novel for Romantic crush Junkies eZine website.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marvelle Does It Again 8 Jan 2012
By Landra Graf - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Marvelle does it again-- weaving a miraculous tale of love, passion, and ultimate sacrifice in Forever and a Day. I've enjoyed Marvelle's style and ability of creating characters that are large then life in the past, Georgia and Roderick are no exception.
Georgia is just a poor woman who happens to have a master thief for a stepson and dreams of owning her own property out west, as soon as she can get the money. The arrival of Lord Roderick Yardley, or as he calls himself in his amnesiac state, Robinson, puts a slight kink in future dreams. Robinson is a paradox of sorts. A kind and thoughtful man, yet possessive and overcome with desire for his fiery haired, Irish caretaker.

It took a little while to get these two paired off, but once they were... what a joyride! Marvelle's storytelling will constantly leave you guessing, and you never know how much of the story you will get. What makes the tale enjoyable is how these two people from the different classes and lifestyles adjust to each other. The attraction between them is maddening, and the connection they form, with Robinson having no idea what his real life is like, will have you praying for an HEA.

Without spoiling the ending I will say that the final chapters of the book had me at a loss. Hence the reason for a 3.5 rating. I just felt the ending was too abrupt and I desired to revel in the magic a bit longer. If I'd been given one more chapter then my appetite would have probably been sated. I would say that the ending was also a little anti-climatic and didn't seem to fit Roderick and Georgia's style.

Overall, this story is enticing. The characters are memorable. The language colorful, and this historical breaks away from the traditional rules. Setting covers the grimy areas of New York City to the fanciful Rotten Row of London. This is the first book in a new series with a recently released novella serving as a prologue. If you like mystery, passion, and the least likely to come out a winner then Forever and a Day is one to read.

5.0 out of 5 stars Will I be the same person inside, if I change how I appear on the outside? 14 Dec 2011
By Mary Gramlich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When you come from poverty and live with it every day of your life, it becomes not only who you are but how you survive. For Georgia Milton a young widow makes her life thrive by doing tasks for others in the rugged streets of early 1800's New York. Survival is an existence but dreams are never forgotten and Georgia is determined to pursue hers. When she meets what she knows is a British aristocrat she tries to lose him knowing nothing good will come of this relationship. The circumstances that take this man from an unknown annoyance to living in her house still baffles Georgia but she is nothing if not responsible.

The man no longer knows his true name and thinks himself to be "Robinson Crusoe" which is even remotely possible. All this memory loss is due to an unfortunate accident, which Georgia feels was her fault since it occurred while he was defending her honor. There are many things she does not know but this man but Georgia believes there is a family looking for him. He is too refined and cultured to not have people that care for his existence, and want him back despite her not wanting to let him go. Georgia shows him how to survive on the streets where staying alive when the sun goes down is not as easy as it should be. "Robinson" adapts to his life with Georgia and each day finds them more than emotionally bound, as it is almost magical when they kiss.

Both Georgia and "Robinson" have dark secrets and hidden pain they keep tucked away so no one can see. They have the ability to heal and soothe the ache they both long for in a relationship but will that be allowed to happen. When the knock on the door comes with men who know, who "Robinson" really is and where he truly belongs, will he be able to keep the life he quickly created with Georgia or does his real life completely collide with hers? Both are up for a challenge but each wonders what decision is right - stay together or separate.

When a reader seeks historically accurate, romantically inclined, and dramatic excitement, always pick up a Delilah Marvelle book. This new series starts off with a jolt, taking the reader on a fast paced ride with so much going on you think you might get lost but Ms. Marvelle writes a tale so deep with description and detail you never miss a beat except maybe a few of your own heart beats as you prepare for the next adventure.
