At ThriftBooks, our motto is: Read More, Spend Less. However, another young man, Jacob, keeps popping into her affairs. I liked this title more than the Avon True Romance for Teens title I read several years previously that took place in the Wild West. Goodness, she thought with some astonishment. His blue-eyed gaze followed the graceful arc of her arm, and he said reverently, Indeed.
Well, it was simply ridiculous, not one of them agreeing to marry poor Miss Whatever-Her-Name-Was, when Victoria had had such a lovely wedding planned. She fell in love at first sight with the handsome Earl of Malfrey - Hugo who also confessed his love for her in an instant, but there is this one person who kept on annoying her and that's none other than Captain Jacob Carstairs. The story is simple and predictable, but it has this spark that will let you ask for what's next. And is Hugo hiding a terrible secret? Now that they are in London, why won't he just leave Victoria alone? Blah, formulaic and utterly cliché, but then again, this is a Regency romance for a target audience of 14 year olds. She could feel his heart drumming, strong and vibrant, beneath the cream-colored satin of his waistcoat. Slowly she realizes it is actually Jacob she has loved the entire time and he loves her and so they live happily ever after. So it's about a girl who agrees to marry a guy in order to get the other guy jealous.
Is she wanted for her intellect or her inheritance? I love the period perspectives and how the stories are just feel-good love stories. This a teen romance novel, set in the Regency era in England. About this Item: HarperCollins Publishers. I liked this title more than the Avon True Romance for Teens title I read several years previously that took place in the Wild West. E Victoria e o Patife trouxe isto de volta para mim. This was a typical love story but Cabot keeps you entertained for the most part.
Goodness, she thought with some astonishment. . He was such a handsome man, with his square jaw and braod shoulders. I like the time period it was set in and how that affected the relationships. My love of Cabot and a good love story sparked my interest and I decided to look into the rest in the set.
But now she is moving to England so that she can find a husband. What a tiresome young man this Jacob Carstairs was! Victoria is more likely to carry an elephant gun than a purse and this alienates her from her family in England. And then you left the table before dessert was served. I don't want to give it 1 star. Victoria is a 16-year-old pampered, orphaned heiress, who is just self-absorbed enough to believe she should rule over everyone's lives because she knows best supposedly , but also has a kind heart that has nothing but good intentions toward those around her. Jacob is very much against the match and causes butts heads with Lady Victoria a lot. I loved the character of Victoria.
He was such a handsome man, with his square jaw and broad shoulders. I believe he is about to propose! Light and fluffy, a book to cosy up with. It breaks my heart that tomorrow I shall have to leave you to travel on to England alone, for I have business to attend to in Lisbon…. From her fluff has quality and apparently Cabot can apply that quality to historical stories about the perils of coming out in English society after leaving British India in search of a husband a Cabot writes stories about well-meaning, determined, independent heroines overcoming life's obstacles with spirit and finding love, during lots of flirting, with someone that challenges them.

With her usual aplomb, however, Lady Victoria gets herself engaged to the perfect English gentleman, even before setting foot on British soil. Well, it was simply ridiculous, not one of them agreeing to marry poor Miss Whatever-Her-Name-Was, when Victoria had had such a lovely wedding planned. But the audio was pleasant and I spent a lot of time shouting at Victoria which does make me look a bit crazy when I'm driving. You had better go see Mrs. I'm a sucker in literature for the snarky git - when done right, of course. Já tem um bom tempo que um romance não me deixava com o coração aquecido e suspirando de verdade por um casal de protagonista.
On the long sea journey from India to London, Victoria meets Hugo Rothschild, the ninth early of Malfrey, who proposes to her shortly before the journey's end. Hugo and his mom basically kidnap her but Victoria is able to escape, with the help of Jacob. It had a really good romance and also a good mystery subplot. She's a busybody who feels she must improve all those around her. Before long she's head over heels in love without realizing it. Meg will always have a special place in my heart, as she was the first writer I started reading when I decided that I finally trust myself to read a whole book in English. And yet here Jacob Carstairs was, butting his nose into the private affairs of his fellow ship passengers! His blue-eyed gaze followed the graceful arc of her arm, and he said reverently, Indeed.
