This really is a cut above your average romantic story,it was a beautifully observed tale of the developing relationship between two very believable characters. The only thing that let it down was the rather rushed and typically happy ending. Overall, it was a very enjoyable book...

This is the best Regency novel I have read so far! The hero and heroine are really meant for each other and you can feel this all the way! She is clever and witty and he is really The Knight in Shining Armor! I enjoyed it immensely and laughed a great deal too!

I so enjoyed this book. I have read several reviews which state that the second half of the book didn't appeal, and felt rushed. I really didn't get that impression. At the beginning, it was fascinating to watch Jules and Phoebe flirt, banter, enjoy one another's company and start to fall in love. There was a lot of witty humour, but the focus was on the difference in social classes and expectations in that period. Even as I was enjoying it, I felt as though I was watching an accident which was inevitably going to happen. From early in the book, when Lisbeth, without any malice, made plain her view of where Phoebe fitted into the house party, I felt on edge. Phoebe was pushing the boundaries with Jules, and he encouraged her without any thought of having a permanent relationship with her. He expected to marry someone of his class - and this in a time when breeding, background and property were so very important to the upper echelons of society. It wasn't even the usual reason, marrying to oblige his family. It was just what he expected of himself. I wanted to shout to Phoebe to please be careful!

When she was invited to London, I was totally caught up in the disaster rushing towards her. This was the bored idle rich and titled at play, without a thought of what their actions would do to another human being - because to them, she was so beneath their dignity that they didn't consider her feelings at all, and it was just a game to them. I was so caught up in it that I couldn't put the book down - Phoebe was unaware that she was courting disaster when you knew she ought to have recognised what was happening around her, and she was swept along, basking in the reflected glory without once questioning WHY this was happening to her.

This is the 5th book in a row I have read by this author and WOW! Another hit from Julie Anne Long. Her writing is so good.

I loved how this story unfolded and the pace at which it happened. I laughed out loud so many times, but that has happened in each of the Julie Anne Long books I have read so far.

I felt immense pleasure reading this novel. It is very funny, with the hero, Julian who is a Marquess, setting the trends in the same manner as young TV and movie stars do today. It is also very romantic and the sexual tension builds to a crescendo. Julie Anne Long sure knows how to write a good “build-up.” Makes for a riveting read.

This book is not 5 star for me because
- I did not enjoy watching Phoebe and Julian deceive (whether intentional or not) the heiress Julian is courting during a house party.
- I felt the big love scene/sex scene was out of place somehow. I just have to accept Phoebe in particular was overcome by emotion.

Despite this, and a lot of silly moments (that I heartily laughed at), I really liked this novel.

I enjoyed watching Julian suffer while trying to make the right choices. He deserved what he got from the cat. I loved everything about Phoebe, (except maybe that sex-scene I referred to that she instigated). But this is a minor flaw in what I thought was an otherwise wonderful heroine.

Not her best in the series, for this you must read What I did for a duke. However it is still highly enjoyable as the writer is really gifted. A rare thing for this genre and I am always left anticipating her next book of the series. The book does stand alone.

Spoilers alert....

Ok I actually enjoyed this book untill chapter 18.
The whole part to London and being the coop of a joke didn't play out well for me, especially the ending!!!
The whole duel thing that doesn't happen because a apology was made! The way the only love scene between the characters was written!
How she leaves him (which I expected him to go after her) (which he doesn't)
How she returns because he's shot!!!!
It felt rushed & rubbish
The first 18 chapters had me hooked to the point I actually growled when I had to put it down! It had me laughing, worried and intrested the way a book should make you feel!

It just didn't ring true for me after chapter 18.
Shame otherwise it's an ok read!
