Book Description



Roderick Gideon Tremayne, the recently appointed Duke of Wentworth, never expected to find himself in New York City, tracking down a mysterious map important to his late mother. And he certainly never expected to be injured, only to wake up with no memory of who he is. But when he sees the fiery-haired beauty who's taken it upon herself to rescue him, suddenly his memory is the last thing on his mind.

Georgia Milton, the young head of New York's notorious Forty Thieves, feels responsible for the man who was trying to save her bag from a thief. But she's not prepared for the fierce passion he ignites within her. When his memory begins to return, her whole world is threatened, and Roderick must choose between the life he forgot and the life he never knew existed.…

'Forever and a Day' is BOOKLIST'S TOP 10 ROMANCES OF 2012

From the Author

Dear Reader,
I love New York City.  The people are damn serious about the way they live life.  They work hard and play hard and needless to say, it got me thinking. Were the people of New York City just as hard core back in 1830 as they are now?  You better believe they were.  And those poor bastards didn't have our modern conveniences, either. Back in 1830, people were trying to pave dirt streets with gold, even though they had nothing but sweat.  So what happens when an American-Irish woman named Georgia with only coal clutched in each hand meets a British aristocrat who only ever had gold?  You get a story known as the Prince and the Pauperette.  But why stop there?  After all, there is so much more to a story than poor vs. rich.  I wanted to get down and dirty and twisted, digging into the real facets of life back in 1830, while giving you a good laugh and a good cry.  As a writer, I get to play god (bwahahaha) and the idea of a person starting over against their will has always fascinated me. So I took away the hero's memory and made him crawl back to the basics in life.  Basics he forgot to appreciate.  Basics he never thought he'd be able to return to.  And he does it all while touching the life of one very special woman who makes him realize true love is not only real but priceless.  I hope you enjoy my historical version of the Prince and the Pauper.         
Much love,
Delilah Marvelle

2.0 out of 5 stars meh August 27, 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Skipping a summary, that's been done, so I'll jump right in.
My two star rating is based on:

1. I liked the very beginning of the book-up until the H/H just decide to get it on in an alleyway ONE DAY after knowing e/other.
2. I liked the NYC setting (I write my own romances set there, just not in this time period) and I could see there was some good research done.

Everything else doesn't deserve stars IMO. Why?
As I mentioned, Robinson (Roderick) and ummm (I forgot her name and I just read this book today) 'Heroine' don't allow the romantic tension to build for very long. We're supposed to believe that the only man she's been with was her first husband, who was 35 years older than she (Can I get an 'EW!'?) but yet she's down with some public copulation after knowing this guy she's not boarding for one day? And I use the term 'knowing' loosely as the man has amnesia!

I was so, so disappointed when that happened. 90% of my interest in the book just died. But I read on.

The book is laid out in 3 parts and they are actually segmented. I don't know- i just felt this was a little hard to swallow. Another review put it nicely- overambitious. Lady, this ain't Shakespeare you're writing.

The hero is TSTL. Anyone else think so? Here's how he thinks- *speaking to girl's stepson who is older than she is and is a KNOWN THIEF- "how are you. you ask for six dollars for 'protection'? well why not take the entire fortune in my pocket? it's not like I'll need it even though i have no idea who I am and I'm currently being boarded by a woman who is clearly poverty stricken. No, I insist you take all my money.

Georgia Emily Milton is one awesome heroine! I just loved her enthusiasm and straight forward manner. She was one strong and formidable female.

The life she led in Five Points, one of the slums of New York in 1830 America, was not easy for our heroine. But then, nothing ever came easy for this young and beautiful, but poor widow.

She was picked out of a coal bin as a teenager by her beloved Raymond who already was a father of two boys. After his death, she gets a hold of a dream of owning her own property out west, in Ohio and she's determined to save every penny, nickel and dime to do what her Raymond taught her she had a right to want: the universe.

A dream she never dreamt, and is no dream at all but a reality was the one in which she meets an attractive and wealthy man who she thinks can only see her as a "one night commodity".

This man approaches her and she finds him attractive, but the voice inside is telling her, he's not for her and he never could or would be. However, our hero would not be deterred, and slowly he gets her to smile and they both start flirting with each other and out of the blue a kid steps in and nabs Georgia's reticule. As both give chaise after the thief, our hero is waylaid and knocked unconscious by an omnibus.

Georgia is filled with guilt as she later finds out that the man is now suffering from memory loss and the only name he remembers and wants to be called is-Robinson Crusoe.

As she and the doctor that's treating him are trying to find who he is, she has no choice but to take him home to her tenement apartment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Marvelle Does It Again January 7, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Marvelle does it again-- weaving a miraculous tale of love, passion, and ultimate sacrifice in Forever and a Day. I've enjoyed Marvelle's style and ability of creating characters that are large then life in the past, Georgia and Roderick are no exception.
Georgia is just a poor woman who happens to have a master thief for a stepson and dreams of owning her own property out west, as soon as she can get the money. The arrival of Lord Roderick Yardley, or as he calls himself in his amnesiac state, Robinson, puts a slight kink in future dreams. Robinson is a paradox of sorts. A kind and thoughtful man, yet possessive and overcome with desire for his fiery haired, Irish caretaker.

It took a little while to get these two paired off, but once they were... what a joyride! Marvelle's storytelling will constantly leave you guessing, and you never know how much of the story you will get. What makes the tale enjoyable is how these two people from the different classes and lifestyles adjust to each other. The attraction between them is maddening, and the connection they form, with Robinson having no idea what his real life is like, will have you praying for an HEA.

Without spoiling the ending I will say that the final chapters of the book had me at a loss. Hence the reason for a 3.5 rating. I just felt the ending was too abrupt and I desired to revel in the magic a bit longer. If I'd been given one more chapter then my appetite would have probably been sated. I would say that the ending was also a little anti-climatic and didn't seem to fit Roderick and Georgia's style.

Overall, this story is enticing. The characters are memorable. The language colorful, and this historical breaks away from the traditional rules.
