Beaumaris starts the book seeming jaded, bored – the typical rich Heyer hero (although untitled this time), but he seems to become more and more amiable as the book goes on, going against his better judgement in order to humour her in many areas (such as Jemmy the Climbing Boy that he takes in). His conversations with the dog are fantastic though – Heyer occasionally includes dogs in her books and she always gives a wonderfully affectionate and amusing portrait, such as Lufra in the book Frederica and Bouncer in The Reluctant Widow.
The book is a great fun read, with lots of interesting characters well-drawn. For me the only real disappointment is that we never really know quite why Beaumaris falls in love with Arabella, apart from her innocence and freshness, and also why he is so sure that she does really like him when she has given him so little encouragement.
Despite these negative comments, read it and enjoy it. It’s well worth it!
Though the 'conversations' with his dog has to be the highlight of this book.
It's high time that the purveyors of such electronic goodies learned that a rip-off is a rip-off, be it on paper or on electric media.
Apart from that, a good read.
My real complaint with this book has nothing to do with the author, but the publisher which allowed innumerable printing errors in the last third of the book. There were missing words, typo's, and poor formatting throughout the final chapters which were a massive distraction. Shame on whoever proof-read before this was printed.
Happily, it all ends well when Mr Beaumaris gives the boy to a childless man who'll know how to keep him in order

One of Heyer's best. Full of period detail,especially of the London fashions, but also really funny. It's rare that a book makes me laugh out loud, but this one did. Read morePublished 21 days ago by Mrs. J. Proctor
