Customer Reviews

The story is funny, tender, sensual and well written.
Lily
I like that she makes Annabelle move past her infatuation to genuine emotions and makes her realise that there is more to true love than sighing over another person.
Judy
Then there was the suspense... This book was very well written and I enjoyed it very much.

There aren't enough words to express just how much I LOVED this book. When I read Seducing Mr. Knightly I was in a reading slump and it quickly pulled me out and has definitely made my list of favorite books for 2012. This book was superb and it just reminds me why I love Maya Rodale's work so much. I couldn't seem stop myself once I started reading this book. It was just so consuming and just so very good.

Annabelle works as a advice columnist at The London Weekly and has been in love with the owner/editor in chief Derek Knightly for the past four years. Determined to finally gain his attention, she writes to her readers asking for their advice on how to attract his attention. With all of the suggestions pouring in, Annabelle quickly begins to take action. From wearing more enticing gowns with lower bodices to pretending to faint into his arms, Annabelle is willing to try anything to get Derek's attention.

Derek has never really noticed Annabelle outside of the fact that she was one of his infamous lady writers. But for someone reason lately she's been starting to stand out and he can't seem to get her off of his mind. When it's brought to his attention that Annabelle has sought out help from her readers to gain the attentions of a certain "nodcock" he can't help but wonder who exactly she is pursuing and why does the thought of her with another man seem to make him jealous?

I loved, loved, loved these two together. I found the build up to their relationship to be sweet. Annabelle has been in love with Derek for what seems like forever and I loved that everyone knows but him. I liked that their relationship wasn't rushed and we were able to see the growth between them.

I liked that this book had quite a lot of humor in it.

Annabelle Swift is the advice columnist (a la "Dear Abbey" in the modern world) for The London Weekly, and though she dishes out advice to her loyal readers each week, she finds she must ask for their help in helping to catch the eye of the man she's fallen for, Derek Knightly -- the editor and owner of the very paper she works for. A cute premise that should have offered a witty, smart Regency-era romance. Instead, it was juvenile, boring and had absolutely no depth whatsoever.

Since the setting is in a newspaper office and the ballroom, this novel could have had really great scenes with sharp dialogue, intelligent protagonists and a plot that mattered. I was so disappointed that the author didn't take advantage of this. Journalists are sharp people in real life. Not so much in this novel. The whole subplot of another newspaper's reporter getting arrested and there being an inquiry was not exciting enough. Annabelle wasn't involved in it at all, so the reader felt disconnected from it, too.

Granted, this is the first novel I've ever ready by Maya Rodale, and I know this is the fourth and final book in a series -- but come on! The only thing Annabelle ever thinks about is Knightly -- blushing and stuttering and sighing whenever she sees him. She reminded me of a middle schooler. She's worked at the paper for 3.5 years and she's never had a real conversation with him? Why is she so convinced that she loves him? Why is he the perfect man for her? They're not even friendly in the beginning. Her crush-verging-on-an-obsession makes no sense. Then, her readers offer her "advice" and she goes about the most obvious and stereotypical way of getting his attention. Showing cleavage, really? Batting your eyelashes? Making him think there's a rival?

Annabelle was pathetically boring, and I have to agree with another reviewer that it was just too juvenile. As for Knightly, can you really blame him for being oblivious? He was running a newspaper, constantly busy reviewing many details. How was he supposed to know that the girl liked him when she shrunk into the shadows and only sighed at him, stammered, and blushed. He's not a mind reader, but after the non too subtle hints, he put the clues together quickly. I was just too repulsed and felt no connection or empathy for Annabelle. She was always going around feeling too sorry for herself. She took pride in having no backbone. Ugh...It took sweet and innocent from a nauseating level quickly to a no interest level.

This was a fun and quick read for a cold, rainy night. I love the twist at the end, "What would Annabelle advise?" I love that Mr. Knightly was a man who was ahead of his time. I love how Annabelle (the "Dear Abby" of her day) came out of her shell following her readers' advice. I love how some of the advice worked really well and how some fell flat. I loved how the better advice came from her male readership. This is a good romantic comedy!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The build up for Derek and Annabelle's story was such that I expected a book full of emotional discovery and deep character analysis. Would we finally find out about the his past which has only been hinted at in prior books? How will Rodale make him likeable as a hero for he has been shown to be coldhearted and calculating? Will Annabelle continue to be a meek mouse or be as adventuresome as her friends? Unfortunately what is presented is a story that tries to be humorous at parts but falls short and only skims the surface of each characters' personalities.

The heroine relies on her readers and friends to help her navigate the art of luring a man, which is fine for the first few tries, but for the entirety of the book? She is contemplating marrying a man for the rest of her life, it doesn't make any sense that she has no ideas of her own for keeping his attention. There is one part in the story where she writes a scathing article blasting the hero for being blind to the fact that he is the central figure in her attempts at amour, but this is only after she is challenged to do so by someone who admires her writing. She lives with her brother and termagant of a sister-in-law, but is unable to defend herself even though she is a writer and supposedly a master with words. Where were the witty comebacks? None existent. I ultimately found her to be a boring character and didn't really care if she got the hero in the end or not.

The largest disappointment in this book,though, is the hero. He ends up being just another oblivious guy versus the tortured soul that I thought he was from reading the preceding three books.
