    I ve read this book like most Heyers countless times if I had been rating books then, this one would have been around 3.5 But now I m a lotfond of assertive heroines while both leading characters are very prone to irrational actions, I m looking at the original publication date 1941 If I was a reader in WW2 I certainly would have wanted frothy, fast paced fun, rather than grim reality But just to get an idea of the fantastic sums of money being thrown around in this boo I ve read this book like most Heyers countless times if I had been rating books then, this one would have been around 3.5 But now I m a lotfond of assertive heroines while ...

    I love it One of the best Heyer books I couldn t stop reading Fortunately, I could spare time for that So I have read it in one day all day.There wasn t a scene that I don t like You have many situations and brilliant dialogues between characters Both heroes have a spirit, strong personality No ninny And they play together or I should say against each other famously There isn t so typical for Heyer a hero who must rescue a defenceless heroine.What was shocking to me the most t I love it One of the best Heyer books I couldn t stop reading Fortunately, I could spare time for that So I have read it in one day all day.There wasn t a scene that I don t like You have many situations and brilliant dialogues between characters Both heroes have a spirit, strong personality No ninny And they play together or I should say against each other famously There is...

    2.5This isn t the first book with this theme I ve read so far A mistaken opinion is hardly a boring theme It works quite well in romances I didn t like the characters, but while I simply didn t like Deborah Grantham and Max Ravenscar or their cousins and friends, her aunt was the most despicable person in the whole book Her one and only interest is money and what could or should Deb do to deal with it It was disgusting It might be just me but I felt sick while reading the scenes when she w 2.5This isn t the first book with this theme I ve read so far A mistaken opinion is hardly a boring theme It works quite well in romances I didn t like the characters, but while I simply didn t like Deborah Grantham and Max Ravenscar or their cousins and friends, her aunt w...
