Lucinda Cardington is shy and awkward and doesn't really want to get married. It was never on her mind, let alone her heart. She doesn't do well at parties or large gatherings, enjoys photography, and does not have the social skills to attract a husband. I loved Lucinda, I thought she was very endearing and felt very real. In a way, she reminded me a little of me, so it was nice to be able to relate to a character.
I enjoyed the plot a lot. It has been a while since I read something like this and thinking back, I do not remember reading something like this in particular. James and Lucinda get close, while James realizes there is treasure hidden behind the sociably awkward, "plain" girl, he finds himself falling head over heels for Lucinda. Too bad he is already engaged to her bubbly, beautiful, but childish sister Emily. So while James struggles to find the perfect match for Lucinda, he cannot help the growing attraction between them. I liked that the attraction did not happen right away, but sort of built through the book. It made it much more enjoyable and believe. I found myself rooting for the match, even if the ending was a bit predictable.
What I wasn't really fond off...
Emily. I really disliked her until the end. I did not think she was a good sister and everything she did was to help herself and not Lucinda.Read more ›
Lucinda Cardington and her younger and pretty sister, Emily Cardington, are both eligible for marriage. Lucinda is not interested in getting married, but Emily is quite eager. Lucinda is a very intelligent young woman who would rather set up her own home when she comes into a trust at age 26, hire a companion and live as she would prefer reading books and learning. Lucinda is quite involved with her good works. She is the Patron of the Caring House for Wayward Ladies located in the Spitalfields area of London. It is a school that teaches skills to women and helps them find a good job. Most of these women were previously prostitutes. Many people are scandalized that Lucinda is associating with these women and working in this unsuitable part of town.
Unfortunately. the girls' parents are adamant that they marry and they insist that Lucinda, being the older, must marry first. They each have a dowry of 50,000 pounds which makes them quite desirable.
James Simpson is an outgoing man, but one with little funds. One of his interests is photography and he has become quite good at it. Unfortunately, the Cardington family disapproves of him on the grounds that he is an untrustworthy rogue. He has always enjoyed flirting with debutantes.
While attending a ball at the home of Lord and Lady Trefethen, he is introduced to and dances with Emily. She is immediately enamored by him. Later, he finds Lucinda reading a book on photography and they share a wonderful discussion about it. James is quite intrigued by Lucinda and her intelligence and outspoken ways. However, Minx that she is, Emily finds ways to meet with James hoping he will propose to her.Read more ›
James Simpson enjoys his life doing as he pleases … and, who he pleases. He has no desire to settle down, or to end his rakish ways. But when the young Emily Cardington follows him one night to a place no respectable woman should ever go at night (let alone unchaperoned) just to find him, and her older sister follows to save her, they are discovered by a gossip column journalist who has no qualms about sharing it all. Both ladies are now facing a scandal that could ruin their reputations and bring shame to their family. There is only one thing James can do, be a stand-up guy, and marry the young Emily, knowing full well this whole ruse has been a trap.
Lucinda has no desire to ever marry and is happily intending to be a spinster living her life on her terms. Reading, taking up photography which her father shuns, and helping the fallen women wanting to better themselves at Caring House. Its no surprise that her father wants her to marry and soon! But she never expected her sister’s dowry to hinge on her own marriage.
Lord Cardington has tasked James with finding Lucinda a suitable husband before his wedding to Emily. If he doesn’t, he will not be getting a dowry which will put him in financial ruin. James sets to his task never expecting to fall in love with Lucinda himself! But how can he follow his heart without bringing shame and scandal to the women he was most trying to protect during all of this?
It’s been awhile since I have read a historical romance, and this is my first by Jennifer Delamere. And, I found that it was rather enjoyable overall. It wasn’t the best I have read, but it maintained my interest throughout.Read more ›
