Even while watered-down, I did care enough about the characters to reach the HEA, and enjoyed the wry humor of the fact that the novel opens with a wedding, and ends with a wedding. Yardley’s behaviour was not considered grounds for divorce by the lawyers of the day and, if Julia had tried to reveal publicly what he was like, she would have been condemned for her lack of discretion because wives aren’t supposed to air their dirty linen in public. To me she came across as a little dull and a little priggish. Annabel is a Mississippi girl, who comes from poverty. When Annabel’s uncle comes to him with a proposition, if he can convince her to cancel the wedding, he will give Christian half a million, which is enough to start to rebuild what his brother lost in a card game. His vow only holds true until Annabel comes around and he admits second chances are allowed.
This novel features a young American heiress–actually an almost accidental heiress–who has found herself to be in possession of massive amounts of money due to the mining successes of a father she never knew. No trivia or quizzes yet. I can’t point exactly what it is but it may be a combination of things: We know the husband stripped her of her ability to feel desire [you know, until Aidan comes along the second time] but not what, specifically, he did. As with many books I’ve abandoned and sent back to the library, another shinier book came along and this one wasn’t enough to hold me. Trathen reminded me a lot of Cecil from A Room With a View , and may well have been modelled off him; I think he’s the hero of the next book, Scandal of the Season , though, so he’ll have to come out of his repressed shell.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Overall, Scandal is a fun, sweet read. Refresh and try again. Aidan is a sophisticated wealthy traditional duke who understood he fe maneuvered by Julia, who was his complete opp 4.
El escándalo del año
I liked this story a lot ppantadas than the first. The characters have to work for it! Not only to better understand Julia but also to understand the abuse extends beyond Julia and that there is a situation of the other women Lord Yardly abused and continues to abuse.

Just where was I supposed to have them? Return to Book Page. Enn Southern roots and New Money vulnerabilities made me want to be her best friend. I was left feeling pretty Although this book was 10 times better than her last book, it still lacked her original spellbinding passion and story telling.
Guhrke didn’t fall into the “let’s make fun of the country yokel because they’re yokels” writing.
Dude goes to a matchmaker and gets turned down. I have to say, I’ve been somewhat disappointed with her latest release guheke was kind of happy that she was moving on to another series. Semua karena tokoh utamanya Christian dan Annabel. I’m not going to identify the guhrle, since my current weird state of mind might have contributed to how little I was enjoying it.

Can you blame to be afraid to lose Beatrix?

But she also shows strength, resilience and courage by choosing to fight alyar rather than be a victim of her husband and I really admired her for this stand. I’m not saying that Beatrix was marrying Will for his title, because she wasn’t.
Scandal of the Year by Laura Lee Guhrke
Will’s feelings that if Beatrix loved him enough she would have left, and Beatrix’s fear that he couldn’t support a family are seated in a truth that they must work out. I turned planfadas down, but now, I would be a fool to turn it down again. However, in the case of Wedding of the Season, one of my favorite authors failed in her duty to me. Belinda, years ago, married an Earl with whom she was madly in love.

Wedding of the Season by Laura Lee Guhrke
Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Es una de esas novelas con las que paso un rato agradable y disfruto. But, when Julia seeks out the advice and help of Aidan for a personal matter, she inadvertently puts herself and Trathen in a very close, precarious and sensitive situation to help him find his future duchess.
Apr 28, ChloeLeeNH rated it really liked it. But, it seems like all his choices leave HIM abandoned at the altar — something quite uncommon not just of the time, but for his sex more specifically.
While both Will and Trix felt they made the right decision 6-years ago, spending time together again reveals the deep passion they once shared is far from gone.
Her job description consists of Julia finding and introducing him to prospective brides since he was in the market of choosing his duchess. Gurhrke bucked romance traditions with this novel, and it worked wonderfully.
Altra can’t help but feel for her and respect her, especially as her past is slowly reveled as one full of emotional and physical pain. What they didn’t expect was for old flames to begin a slow slimmer until both are feeling the heat of their desire for the other. Jan 11, Lisa Kay rated it it was amazing Shelves: But at no time did I feel the need to laugh at her because of where guhfke came from.
This plantadqs starts off a chain reaction of return feelings that never truly went away and a second chance at forever for Will and Trix. Bad enough that he wanted her so much he ached like a randy seventeen-year-old.
He disfrutado de ese tira y afloja serei los personajes. The H and h of this book were very appealing to me. Now, he has numerous weights he’s carrying around.
