Readers become writers, and Christina Dodd has always been a reader. She reads everything, but because she loves humor, she likes romance best. A woman wants things like world peace, a clean house, and a deep and meaningful relationship based on mutual understanding and love. A man wants things like a Craftsman router with attachments, undisputed control of the TV remote, and a red Corvette which will miraculously make his bald spot disappear. When Christina's first daughter was born, she told her husband she was going to quit work and write a book. It was a good time to start a new career, because how much trouble could one little infant be?

Ha! It took ten years, two children and three completed manuscripts before her first novel, CANDLE IN THE WINDOW, was published to great acclaim. In the years since, she has enjoyed writing witty, emotional novels for every reader: suspense, historical romances, paranormal romances, romantic suspense. Her stories have been translated into 25 languages, won the prestigious Golden Heart and RITA Awards and been called the year's best by Library Journal. Christina Dodd herself has been a clue in the Los Angeles Times crossword puzzle (11/18/05, # 13 Down: Romance Novelist named Christina.) Publishers Weekly praises her style that 'showcases Dodd's easy, addictive charm and steamy storytelling.' With more than fifteen million of her books in print, her legions of fans always know that when they pick up a Christina Dodd book, they've found, "an absolute thrill ride of a book!"

Christina Dodd is married to a man with all his hair and no Corvette, but many Craftsman tools.

this book should have ended half way through, but i thought to myself that maybe it will get better. It didn't. The last few chapters i just skimmed to see if they actually ended up together, because the main characters are completely unsuited for each other. Not to mention the fact that the male lead is shallow and the female lead spends the entire book trying to convince everybody that she is the 'ugly sister.' If she wasn't fishing for compliments i don't know what she was doing.

I never could get into this book very much... the characters just weren't interesting enough. Though the book had a good plot, it seemed too rushed at times and way too slow at others. When Bronwyn is betrothed to Adam Keane, she only hopes he is a nice man... not even her one request could be fulfilled here, when she meets him and sees how shunned he is by the woman he describes as "ugly" and plain. As Bronwyn turns from the ugly duckling she once was, she begins to gain his attention... only who would want the attention from such a cruel and insensitve man? The only time Adam Keane is kind is when his whole world falls apart, and he is vulnerable and needs help from others. I found the characters quite shallow, with very little changes in their characters by the last page. Also it was a little overdone on the topic that it is shameful for a woman of this time frame to be intelligent or clever - and the author's continuous examples just got tiresome. Although I finished this book, it took great effort and I'm not real sure I can sit through another Christina Dodd book in the future.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Bronwyn Edana is the ugly duckling amongst a string of beautiful sisters, equally hamstrung by her intelligence and learning. When her parents arrange a marriage with Adam Keane, the rather gruff and unfriendly nobleman, she finds her lack of beauty and social approbation very difficult. She overhears Adam telling his friend that she is a disappointment compared to her younger sister Olivia and decides to run away, to stay with a French lady in a salon with whom she had previously had some dealings. Adam comes after her, trying to woo her through seduction as he had long ago decided that there was far more to Bronwyn than others realised. However whilst he is in London a big investment scheme begins to go belly-up and he is blamed whilst the real culprit, a man who is counterfeiting documents, is preparing to assassinate an important figure in the government. Adam has to get to the bottom of the counterfeiting scheme, win back Bronwyn and extricate himself from a second engagement to Bronwyn's sister Olivia.

The book was rather disappointing. Both Bronwyn and Adam felt rather loose in their characterisation with descriptions given of their behaviour which seemed strangely changeable. Adam's behaviour as a nobleman towards a gentlewoman was pretty bad and Bronwyn's behaviour was completely inappropriate for her station. The villain was a pantomime-type baddie, even down to his baldness and pock-marked face. The dialogue and behaviour of the characters was inaccurate for this historical period, particularly as people spoke with modern-day American word forms rather than 19th century English ones. The love story didn't seem much about love and the occasional touches of violence by the hero were unappealing. The South Sea Company plot had some promise but was rather simplistic overall.

I've read almost every Christina Dodd book she's written, and in my opinion this is the first one that deserves less than 3.5 stars. It is terrible! As did many others, I hung in until the end because I kept assuming that somehow it would get better. It didn't. My two main complaints: convoluted writing (I mean, some of what she writes is sooooo confusing) and poor editing.

However, it deserves one star because in my opinion, the story itself had potential -- though it is rather bizarre -- but the book is just too difficult to wade through. Don't waste your money - - just about any of her other books are much better.

I was disappointed in this tale by Christina Dodd, which made me happy I got the book for free. I do encourage readers to seek out other Christina Dodd books; overall she's a good author, and this is one of her earlier tales.

As mentioned by other reviewers, Bronwyn Edana is a unique beauty convinced that she is ugly when compared to her beautiful sisters. Her family enters into a betrothal with Adam Keane, a nobleman with something to prove and a family scandal hanging over his name. He agreed to the engagement to secure a place in society with an Edana bride, but at first is unimpressed with his supposedly unattractive wife-to-be. After overhearing a conversation between Adam and one of his employees about her being unattractive, Bronwyn enters the home of an outcast French lady and becomes adored by members of her salon. Adam must chase after his runaway bride and convince her he loves her while simultaneously defending his reputation against a stock scandal and trying to solve a murder mystery that leads to a conspiracy against the government.

Sounds promising, right? Wrong.

Problems with the book:
1. Bronwyn. Just as I don't like heroines who know they're gorgeous and discuss it all the time, I don't like heroines who can't at least see themselves as attractive and constantly put themselves down. I have seen authors start out this way and show character development and growth throughout the story, but in this case it just didn't happen until way too late in the book.

2. Adam. I wouldn't marry him. I wouldn't fall in love with him. He was a jerk and treated Bronwyn horribly.
