5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Story from Wolf 26 May 2000
By Shawna Lanne - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I love it when I see that a new Joan Wolf book has been published because I know that it will be a quality book. Her newest book about an English noblewoman and her Highland husband, Someday Soon, is no exception. This book has romance intrigue, a great hero and heroine and a strong story line.
Lady Alexander Wilton is one of the most beautiful women in England. She is also one of the most stubborn, she wants to marry for love. After three seasons and innumerable marriage proposals her father loses patience and adds a codicil to his will that forces her to wed the seventh Earl of Wilton, who everyone thinks is her Cousin Geoffrey. Of course her father dies soon after adding this to the will. If she does not marry the seventh Earl all of her fathers un-entailed wealth will go to the Jockey Club. If this happens Alexander will be without money and her beloved home will be without funds. Only Geoffrey is not the seventh Earl, a wild Highlander is. Niall Macdonald is the grandson of a Highland Chief and the son of the late Earls younger brother. He is the rightful heir.
What I enjoyed so much about this story was that it was a story of equals, while Wolfe never specifically gave Niall's age it was inferred that he was around the same age as Lady Alexander who is 21 years old. Niall was kept from being portrayed as a callow youth by his responsibilities and his care for his people as the Mac-Mhic-Donnail Chief in training. He vows to never love a frail English woman even though he is half-English himself and she is sure that she could never love a Highland barbarian like him. Of course since this is a romance they are both wrong.
Someday soon was a wonderful book, a quick engaging read with a sweet love story. The main characters are equals are both likeable characters and most of the secondary characters are engagingly drawn although if a couple of them had been taken out it would not have changed the story line really at all.

1.0 out of 5 stars Such Disappointment ! 7 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I am so disappointed. I adore Joan Wolf books and have been eagerly awaiting this one for months. However, I find myself struggling to finish each page. The writing is so juvenile, and Alexandra is possibly the most annoying heroine ever. All she does is complain, and speak "coldly" to people. What I loved about Joan Wolf's previous novels was her ability to develop relationships between both characters. This novel is not original. I find it hard to belive that Joan Wolf wrote this. The storyline and encounters between Niall and Alexndra are boring. I don't feel the sparks between them. I feel like yawning. For all of you who loved The Gamble, Pretenders etc, do not buy this one. The writing style is radically diff. from the previous books and very much like the generic romance drivel you find elsewhere. Sorry fans. This one doesn't cut it.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terribly, Terribly disappointed 5 July 2000
By Soyini - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have been a fan of Joan Wolf's regencies for many years. I spend hours in book stores looking for her old ones (The Rebellious Ward, A London Season, His Lordship's Mistress, etc.) and have found most of them. When she started her regencies again with "The Deception", I was thrilled and wait with baited breath for each new one.
Someday Soon is just not in the same class, however, as "The Guardian", "The Arrangement", "Golden Girl", "The Gamble", "The Pretenders". I agree ... that the character development of the hero and heroine is shallow. The development of their relationship was even worse. It was hard for me to care about either one of them, or to believe that they cared about each other.
I'm not sure why she abandoned the first person narrative convention that she used in the other books in this series, but it did not help the character or plot development at all.
Also, what does this title have to do with the story?

5.0 out of 5 stars A winning romance 28 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In May 1813, the Earl of Hartford is disgusted with his daughter for her continual rejection of the most leading eligible males of the Ton. Alexandra wants to marry for that silly notion of love. Knowing he is ailing and worried about Alexandra's future, the Earl decides he must take action. Five months later, the Earl dies in the arms of one of the girls working at London's Madame Dufour's establishment. Even more shocking is his will that insists that his daughter must wed the benefactor of his will or both will be cut off with no income.
Initially, Alexandra thinks her cousin Geoffrey is the heir, but five months later Scotsman Niall MacDonald arrives with a stronger claim. As Niall and Alexandra agree to a marriage of convenience, they begin to fall in love with one another. However, accidents that seem deliberate start to befall Niall. Working as a team, Niall and Alexandra struggle to uncover the identity of the individual trying to kill him.
SOMEDAY SOON is an engaging Regency romance starring two exhilarating lead charcaters. Although the identity of the villain seems obvious, the who-done-it adds to the overall excitement of the tale. Alexandra and Niall make a captivating pair whose love shines throughout the novel even as their relationship fills the book with humor. Best-selling author Joan Wolf writes a pleasant historical romance that will satisfy her fans.

1.0 out of 5 stars Hated it... 28 Mar. 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I absolutely hated this book. It was probably the worst book Joan has written. She has written some great stuff in the past but not this. Alexandra Wilton is a dolt. Her cousin, Geoffrey, who thought he would inherit the estate and title from her father, the Earl, is in love with her. turns out that a highlander named Niall is to inherit and marry the beautiful Alexandra. He is a dishy man but once again, Joan Wolf goes for the bride who refuses to sleep or consumate her marriage. Why would a female refuse to or at least at some point consider sleeping with ones oh so handsome husband to at least have children? It makes zero zero sense, especially since Alexandra loves her home so much that she never wants to leave. Wouldn't she want a child of hers to inherit? The romance between Niall and Alec is not very interesting, basically not in existence. What blows my mind is that Geoffrey tries to kill Niall several times. Alec refuses to believe it when Niall tries to tell her. When Geoff finally admits it to her, she wonders how soon he can come calling on her again where Niall won't be mad....what? Oh, yes, attempt to kill my husband by buring him alive, running him down with a coach, shooting, well, let us all be friends and come for tea. How stupid was that...
