Book Description


Growing up in far-off India, wealthy young heiress Lady Victoria Arbuthnot was accustomed to handling her own affairs -- not to mention everyone else's. But in her sixteenth year, Vicky is unceremoniously shipped off to London to find a husband. With her usual aplomb, however, Lady Victoria gets herself engaged to the perfect English gentleman, even before setting foot on British soil.

The Rogue

Hugo Rothschild, ninth earl of Malfrey, is everything a girl could want in a future husband: he is handsome and worldly, if not rich. Lady Victoria has everything just as she'd like it. That is, if raffish young ship captain Jacob Carstairs would leave well enough alone.

Jacob's meddling is nothing short of exasperating, and Victoria is mystified by his persistence. But when it becomes clear that young Lord Malfrey just might not be all that he's professed to be, Victoria is forced to admit, for the first time in her life, that she is wrong. Not only about her fiance, but about the reason behind the handsome ship captain's interference.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Brilliant!! 4 Aug. 2004
By *
This book is set in London, 1810. It is about a 16-year-old girl named Lady Victoria Arbuthnot who is the heiress to a £40,000 fortune. She spent her childhood in India and, at the start of the book, is returning to London to live with her aunt, uncle and cousins. Aboard the ship, she meets the devistatingly handsome Hugo Malfrey, as well as the odious Jacob Carstairs. She accepts Hugo Malfrey's marriage proposal during the voyage and Jacob Carstairs seems intent on persuading Victoria to break the engagement, claiming that Hugo Malfrey is a rogue. Victoria doesn't believe a word...but could later discoveries mean that Jacob was right?
This book is full of romance, humour and is generally a very satisfying read. I absolutely love it and can read it over and over again without ever tiring of it. If you enjoyed 'Nicola and the Viscount,' read this. If not, try it anyway.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great for romantic tweens 24 Feb. 2007
I read this book several years ago when I was around 11 and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is based on a young girl who is very rich and although at first slightly ignorant to English society, quickly is engaged to a gorgeous Lord Malfrey who turns out to be not quite what he seems. Victoria's concerns are made even more apparent by the Captain Carstairs, who by warning her against him harms her opinion of the Captain and her own pride.

Meg Cabot has many loose similarities to the classic Jane Austen book, 'Pride and Prejudice' such as the sly Lord who seems like Mr Wickham and the captain like Mr Darcy. Also the Aunt and Uncle of whom she stays with are called the Gardiners although the fact that she is worth a great deal shows the many differences.

Older female readers about 14plus may find it a bit too easy of a read but age 13 downwards I think would enjoy this book as its plot follows many romantic genre conventions.

Meg Cabots flair and style would make any girl enjoy this book but with the humourous storylines and attractive characters, this book will be left in the girls imagination for a long time to come!

3.0 out of 5 stars It's interesting but... 30 Jan. 2005
Another book from Meg Cabot...tells the story of Lady Victoria Arbuthnot who lived in India with her 3 bachelor uncles but is now being shipped off back to England to find herself a suitor. Although I enjoyed this book, it just wasn't as good for me as The Princess Diaries, but is enjoyable nonetheless. Good to read when you can't get hold of any Princess Diary books, for a journery or what not.

5.0 out of 5 stars amazing! 13 Feb. 2006
this book is absolutely amazing! its about a girl called Victoria..who is in her way from India to england..and suddenly a young handsome man named Hugo Rothschild proposes her, she is delighted and accepts the proposal but at the same time she is very annoyed by captain Jacob carstairs who seems always to be intefering in her personal matters..and spreading the news of
her marriage. Not only does the captain do that..but he also tries as hard as possible to break her engagement and later gives a very appropriate reason for this, which Vicotria does take seriously and suddenly starts realising that she just accept higo's proposal to make -"someone" jealous..and may be jacob is right, right about that fact that hugo is a rogue, right aboutt he fact that she never loved hugo, and also right about that fact that-" one day , lady Victoria is going to meet a man whose will cant be bent to suit her purposes, and when that happens she'll fall in love with him"..

5.0 out of 5 stars Great, fun, girly read! 7 Jan. 2011
I absolutely loved this book. Others say it's more suited to people below 12 but im over thirteen and an avid reader and i thought it was brill! I read it in only 3 days on my new kindle - i couldn't put it down!
The way Meg Cabot writes in this book is slightly easier than the other books of hers but, to be honest, i think all ages would enjoy it! My favourite character has to be Captain Jacob Carstairs. In other books i normally like the bad guys as they're exciting and more interesting, but in this book, i loved the hero - Captain Carstairs. I love his sarcastic comments and the way he and Victoria could be having an argument one minute and the next, he has her swooning from his kissing! Both the characters, Lady Victoria and Jacob Carstairs, have so much chemistry between them. It gives the book a certain maturity and clearly displays the daily problems of maidens in the 1800's in a fun and entertaining way! ;D The other character i like is Rebecca Gardiner. She is basically what i would be like if i were to live in the 1800's. I think she has a great way of attracting attention. The way she and Victoria grow closer even though they spent time apart is memorable. I also love the fact that she is such a girly-girl! She crys at silly things, just like me!
The characters are great, the plot is fantastic and overall, a fun and laughable read!

By Reta
When Victoria returns to Britain in 1808 after having spent almost 12 years in India, the English weather isn't the only thing which takes the 16 year old by surprise. For, hasn't the handsome lord Malfrey just proposed to her? But her destiny is about to take a flip and will Victoria survive? After all, with Captain Jacob Carstairs on her back nagging her to change her mind about gorge Malfrey, what is a girl to do? But suddenly things don't seem so romantic any more as her future takes a dip into terror, confusion and hate...
Luckily, this book ends happily and the ending is terrific, believe me.
When I first saw this book, I knew I would love it and trust me, you will love it too. Take the time, and you won't regret it.
