Book Description

3 Jun 2010

Sebastian Grey is in limbo. He is the heir presumptive to the Earl of Newbury, unless the current earl, a widower, can find a bride who will bear him a son. Newbury is in his sixties and somewhat portly, but as an earl he's considered quite a catch. Sebastian, on the other hand, is twenty-nine and extremely handsome, but in no hurry to find a wife.

Annabel Winslow, a country girl through and through, has received an offer to go to London for the season. The eldest of a family of eight, she knows that a good marriage might be the only thing that will save her family from ruin. After a few weeks in town, Annabel attracts the attention of the Earl of Newbury. The thought of submitting to him makes her skin crawl, but she is practical and determined to do her duty. Even when Sebastian Grey comes on the scene.

Book Description

The new Regency romance from Julia Quinn is funny, heart-warming and - best of all - completely unputdownable - think Bridget Jones meets Jane Austen!

By Pam Dhinsa VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If like me you are a Julia Quinn fan you will HAVE to read this book because you will have already devoured all her other books, but I didn't think that this book was that great, compared to some of her other novels.
The plot is centred around Sebastion Grey who we have met before and is a twenty-nine year old gorgeous 'rake'. Sebastion will become an earl if his old and rather horrid uncle (the current earl) dies without producing a male heir.
Enter, Annabel Winslow, the oldest of eight children who is in London for the season. She must find a rich husband so that she can support her family. The Earl soon sets his sights on her as a potential wife, who will give him the heir he so needs. She in return would be able to support her family, but she is repulsed by this lecherous old man.
However when Sebastion and Annabel meet, they have an obvious attraction with each other but things can never be simple in love.
ISSUES KEEPING LOVERS APART:Annabel needs a rich husband and Sebastion appears not to be that wealthy, Sebastion himself is in no hurry to marry, and add to this the fact that Sebastion and his Uncle can't stand the sight of each other but Annabel's grandparents are friends of the earl and back his proposal.
What follows is entertaining but not that exciting, I found it a little slow and the romance between Sebastion and Annabel was not that convincing. The scene near the end with the Uncle in the bedroom was a little too farce-like. Maybe I've just read too many of these Quinn regency novels and I'm getting too picky...if you read this as one of your first Julia Quinn novels you'll probably enjoy it alot more than someone like me. I've been waiting for a book that is as good as her brilliant 'When he was Wicked', this is not!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, witty, and terrific characters. 7 Jun 2010
By Detra Fitch TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Set in London, 1822. Annabel Winslow is staying with her grandparents, Lord and Lady Vickers, in London for The Season. She hopes to find a husband rich enough to bring financial support for her family and ease her mother's burdens. Her grandparents are determined she would wed the Earl of Newbury, a horrid, portly man who is actively seeking a bride to beget an heir with. Lord Newbury's son died a year prior. Unless a new heir is born, Lord Newbury's title and wealth would go to Sebastian Grey, the nephew he deeply despises. Since Lord Newbury is in his late sixties, he has no time to lose. Of course, Annabel knows the slimy old man is interested in her because the females of her family have all proven extremely fertile. It has become a jest among the mature gentry that the birds begin singing whenever Annabel walks by. If only Lord Newbury's gaze did not make her skin crawl.

Sebastian Grey is not eager for his uncle's title or wealth, though the money would be convenient. Most believe Sebastian has little money to call his own. However, unknown by even his closest friends, Sebastian has a secret income. Due to his insomnia, caused by memories of being a sniper in the war, Sebastian writes outrageous gothic novels. They are published pseudonymously and over the last few years have become all the rage.

When Sebastian meets Annabel, he has no idea that she is his uncle's latest victim...uh wife-to-be. Annabel becomes the object of both their affections. Soon Annabel must choose between her family's livelihood and the man she has come to love.

***** FIVE STARS! To read a book by Julia Quinn is always a pleasure. This story overflows with Quinn's signature talents. ONE: The characters are very well developed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly Fabulous 5 July 2010
Format:Paperback
Since I discovered Julia Quinn over a year ago, I've devoured her books up. Not one of her novels has left me with a bad taste in my mouth, to put it simply she's brilliant. I've been waiting for this book since Sebastian was first introduce in What Happens In London and was not disappointed in the least.

I'll not bother with a recount of the story as there are already many. What I will do is disagree with the surprising amount of bad/middling reviews. One of my biggest worries with this book was that it would be an anti-climax just as Romancing Mr Bridgerton was. I don't mean to imply that RMB was a terrible novel, but more that Quinn's way of making Colin's character more complex didn't appeal to me. I thought Sebastian would be portrayed the same way but his character really makes a lot of sense and you can really emphasise with him.

In this genre it's so easy to hate the heroine for the smallest little things, and whilst Annabel did have bad habitats they were easily forgiveable and added to her character. I particularly liked the lists involved in the book and would have loved to have seen more of them further into the book. I disagree with another reviewers view that they were unnecessary because they essentially had nothing to do with the plot. What makes Quinn's books so brilliant it the character quality. Unlike other writers she doesn't have a hundred different storylines occuring simultaneously, the magic in her books are the characters. The lists give the reader a clear insight into the character and are also humorous. I'd go so far as to say they were essential to the story - I mean the book is called "10 Things I Love About You", a list or two was bound to come up.
