A totally romantic story with an unforgettable heroine - from the best-selling author of The Princess Diaries.
From the Inside Flap
Nicola could feel Lord Sebastian's heart beating. It was the most delightful feeling in the world. Surely it meant that The God liked her. More than simply liked her--loved her even. It had to! It just had to!
Miss Nicola Sparks has fallen in love, big time. The object of her dreams is the fabulously rich Lord Sebastian, he of the ice-blue eyes, golden hair, and full-on mastery of the dance floor. To Nicky, Lord S. is a god. But are gods always quite as perfect as they are meant to be?

Another fantastic strong female lead character, and although the basic plot is an ickle bit predictable I certainly don't think it spoils the story.
If you're expecting it to be full of 19th Century style words and terminology that can be hard to understand, fear not, it's not like that.
Great ending and Meg Cabot is very good at dreaming up mouth-watering men, or so I think.
Miss Nicola Sparks is fresh out of Madame Vieuxvincent's school for girls and looking for love. After many refused proposals Nicky starts wondering if Mr. Right is ever going to show up. But then it happens... she falls in love - and with the wealthiest, most popular batchelor in London too. Everything is seemingly heavenly. Only what Nicola, doesn't realise is that the man of her dreams is marrying her for all the wrong reasons. In this case, to gain rights over her beautiful inherited Northumberland mansion which he will then proceed to sell for a large profit to the Stockton and Darlington Railway Company... Oh and if you haven't already realised the book is set in the early 1800s. Anyway, as always, the heroine's plan doesn't go quite as she hoped, but thankfully another handsome young man is ready to catch her when she falls out of love. Nathaniel Sheridan, her best friend's brother who Nicky had always thought of as simply a friend, starts to become a whole lot more...
If you like Meg Cabot - then read it. If you don't or haven't even heard of her before, then i still advise you to read it!!! I think it's great and i hope you will too.
Meg Cabot has managed to write a light, funny and charming romance without missing out all the necessary history of the period it's set in. I know for a fact that after reading this book, when I was younger, it started my obsession with all historical fiction.
It's a great, happy read and it just makes you want to smile and read it again. Definitely recommended!
A book cited as 'teen historical romance' really isn't expected to be very deep or serious, and because it's 'teen' there's got to be quite a few less 'heaving bosoms' etc than adult romance. The 'historical' part is a bit of a laugh. A nod to London society and a little history of the train, I suppose, is meant to warrant this.
The romance is quite, quite charming, being not quite, quite light and quite, quite predictable, which is always comforting.
The plot is rather incredible (in the sense that it's not believable), although Cabot paints a mean hunk. Her male protagonists are droolworthy to say the least. Her main character, Nicola, is meant to appeal to us as the intelligent bimbo type, but is - generally speaking - just annoying. You get that though, and overall, this is a charming bit of froth that doesn't pretend to be anything else. Refreshing. If you want something heavier, try 'Les Liasons Dangereaux'. Or chocolate cake. Mmmmm. Chocolate.
