Format: Mass Market Paperback
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.

That is how long Annabelle has known and longed for Derek Knightly, her boss. I got this book from my library and was delighted immediately upon reading this. I hesitated after reading several of the reviews, but with some encouragement from some dear, fellow readers I decided to throw caution to the wind. So glad I did. :)

The idea of the story is a plain-Jane (Annabelle Swift) who writes a newspaper column for the love of life/editor (Derek Knightly). He is her heart's desire but never notices her. So in a time crunch to get her column done, she makes herself the subject of her own column.

She appeals to all of London for advice on how to get this, " nodcock" to notice her. This is when the fun begins because her column suddenly becomes the talk in every parlor. Even Derek overhears gentleman discussing advice they have offered over his morning coffee, but the true humor was how clueless Knightly was.

Isn't that the way of it ladies? She is making all these major changes but he just doesn't catch on to who it is she is trying to impress. Annabelle does take her new study to task and it is funny to watch her attempt to become the seductress. The images that you get are hilarious.

She is a girl after my own heart. There is a particular reflection she has when recounting one of her most embarrassing moments. Apparently at 12 years old she had unwittingly tucked her petticoats and skirts into her unmentionables and proceeded into church. LOL! I almost spit my coffee across the kitchen.
