Review

Written as if it were found in the attic of an aristocratic family's mansion, I got swept away by the practical heroine's dilemma. I also appreciated how well Ungureanu shirked the romantic conventions of this genre. I won't spoil another reader's fun, but this protagonist is not the usual ditz on a husband hunt.

(Quote) "Portia Marguerite Prudence Thorpe was the only daughter of the most ill favored man that had ever breathed in all England." (unquote) I always love to read the opening sentence of a story. For me, that's a critical moment. If you can draw me in here, it's very likely I will stay with you until the very end. In my opinion, this opening line, quoted above, is as good as any you will find nowadays.

Here's what I thought to myself: What kind of person can Portia possibly hope to become with such a father? Sympathy and compassion and hope compelled me to find out what Portia's fate would be. I also raised the NURTURE VS NATURE question as I read on. That question namely says, 1) that we are what we are born into. (poor Portia). or, 2) we can overcome our birth circumstances and become whatever we want to become (hope for Portia).

As you can see, this was an absolutely intriguing read for me. In the end, there is an answer provided. Author Petronela Ungureanu has given the reader a glimpse into what possibly is her own unique perspective on this question, which ultimately makes you think about your own views of Nature VS Nurture.

Obviously, I recommend this book highly, as I found it well written, intriguing on a number of levels, and clever in appealing to our background knowledge of "Pride and Prejudice", without actually hoping to be simply a spinoff. In other words, this is a unique read, and stands on its own merit.

This was more than a Regency romance, it was also a very clever mystery with a lot of turn of events. I cared for Portia and Lord Salisbury was a very intriguing character. I only wish the author had made it longer. More please.

I'm very particular of historical romances. I took a chance with this one. I haven't regretted it. Like the title, it certainly has that Jane Austen feel to it. It is beautifully and eloquently written which is quite pleasing.Portia, the female protagonist is a likable character in addition to her very handsome romantic interest, Phillip Salisbury. There are enough twists and turns to keep you captivated despite the short length. But don't be mistaken. It is an entire story. Highly recommended for anyone seeking a short regency romance.

What a great read, I really enjoyed the twists and turns. This book was a nice treat for me. The romance is bitter sweet. I fell in love with the main character, she is intelligent and talented. She was courageous when standing up to her father in this time period. I am hoping for a book number two I would love to see this story continue.

This story is going to be a familiar read to any Jane Austen fan. The characters are written a bit different but the idea is still delivered. I know my rating seems low but I was really let down by this book. I didn't pay for this book but I try to be honest in my reviews to give another an example of my experience. The author is brave with her book because it left me at a loss in fact this is my revised review as I thought there was a sequel. It left so many unanswered questions the main one being what happened to Porchia?

I started out enjoying the authors writing. The H does not have Darcy's disposition but instead he is more like Colonel Fitzwilliam. Porticia is slightly Elizabeth and a little of Jane. She has a bad relationship with her father and her mother is dead so that's a switch. The mysterious notes added a bit of intrigue in the mix but I was disappointed in the H. His behavior with Porticia speaks that he is infatuated. He gets upset when she agrees to carry on her engagement with his brother. His words however send a completely different message to the h. ***********SPOILERS******************************

He announces he is engaged himself and the woman turns out to be Porticia's step sister who has the personality of Caroline Bingley but reminiscent of Anne DeBourg. Phillip was so erratic in his thinking and to know he kept such a sensitive secret from her for so long I was really annoyed. The whole book I am waiting for any flicker of a stolen kiss or embrace and other then a sweaty, slobbering suitor you will see none. There really was not even a romance because Phillip for all his concern for Porcia was, I don't know what you would call it. Like I said you are lead to believe he is interested but is later cozied up with the Agnes.

An original take on Regency, with enough twists to keep your interest peaked. Portia is a lovable character. I wish she were a little bit more determined. Elegant writing style. Too bad it's too short. "

No editing. Worst ending I have ever read. I wanted to like it but the descriptions the author gave just go on and on with every romantic cliche there is. Just bad and short

I went through a Georgette Heyer period of reading that remains with me. Regency romances still appeal to me--the time period, the social mannerisms, the "rules" for marriage and the aristocratic class. A LOT OF PRIDE AND SOME PREJUDICE has the feel and tone that I enjoy so much. Portia is a likeable protagonist. Her father is the typical rotter who's lost his fortune to gambling. But the story has some nice, unexpected twists--like Portia's mother's past and letters from a Benevolent Party. Phillip Salisbury is a swoon worthy romantic interest. I found him captivating. The story could have used a little more editing, but the characters intrigued me. I have to admit, the ending wasn't what I expected, but it was a pleasure to spend time with Portia and Phillip.
