Description

The plot is also pretty self explanatory and I could see every step of the story long before it came to fruition, which meant I wasn't surprised by anything that happened. Overall, this book was just a great light-hearted and fun read with a vibrancy to it that I really enjoyed. The story starts in Dorset, but fairly quickly moves to London, where most of the story then plays out. She met her forthright match in Radcliffe, they did not like one another and he was soon 'onto her' and worked out her schemes.

I would have enjoyed the book more if it had been a bit more focused and had a greater depth of feeling.Es cierto que hay personajes muy oportunos para la trama y que una vez hecho su papel y aporte, dejan de ser nombrados.

The dutiful eldest sister shouldering her family’s burdens is an archetype that crops up frequently in Regency romances and I loved it here in combination with Kitty’s unrepentant, quick-thinking scheming.I am not sure how much of the historical portrayal is accurate, but whatever was present in the book was delightful to read. The book had a Pride and Prejudice vibe going on but I was intrigued to see whether Kitty will succeed or not. Miss Irvin, you must, I do beg you, tell us what happened to Cecy and Montagu, how life has treated sweet Beatrice and romantic Jane. twas a yawn fest……idk there was so much set-up with so little pay-off and so few moments of actual enjoyable interaction between the couple. I just thought that there wasn't really much depth to her character beyond this, and at times her desperation leads to some pretty mean interactions.

And I would've forgiven it its simplistic characters if it maybe had some interesting character interactions or dynamics, but no, that's nowhere to be found either. Mucho me ha sonado a clásico, clásico del clásico, personajes, algunas situaciones, pero no es una queja. And I don’t mind “predictable” stories, but this one just gave me nothing to work with; no life, no layers. Estaba pasando un momento de desconexión del mundo literario y este título me llamó la atención e hizo que me apeteciera ponerme a leer.After her parent’s death, Kitty was left with debts, four sisters to support and a goal to marry rich so that her sisters would have a place to live. Es que me lo he pasado en grande leyéndolo, viendo como maquinaba la protagonista y las discusiones entre ella y Radcliffe, no sé, tiene esa chispa que te cautiva y te mantiene pegada a sus páginas disfrutando como una enana, deseando que le salga todo bien y sonriendo ante escenas súper dulces e intensas. The structure is more akin to traditional regency and Heyer-style romances: 1) no sex, only a few kisses at the end, 2) no active relationship or confession of love until the end, 3) battle of wits dialogue that reluctantly turns into mutual admiration, and 4) the antics of headache-inducing relatives. Kitty though never shies away from the mercenary charge and maybe more than any heroines I've encountered in romance, she makes a persuasive case for why women should be praised for their ambitions and why men and a classist society should be mocked openly for their hypocrisy. Infelizmente, o seu noivo, cancela o casamento e Kitty vê-se obrigada a ir para a temporada londrina à procura de marido.

For all of their early antagonism and conflict, Kitty and Radcliffe are more alike than not and the book offers very clever parallel moments to show how these two are the only suitable partners for each other.

By the halfway point I was so tired of Kitty’s constant plotting, attending endless balls given by the upper echelons of society. Ebooks fulfilled through Glose cannot be printed, downloaded as PDF, or read in other digital readers (like Kindle or Nook). All of Kitty's potential suitors also blended into one, as did her sisters (not that we see any of them except Cecily).
