Lady Amelia, awkward and gangly all her life and totally unaware of her beauty, begins to wonder if the man she "loves" will ever truly see that she is his perfect match and lay claim to her before a beautiful but empty headed wench can steal him away. The Duke of Aversley, jaded and beyond redemption, sees her but only as a way to help her prideful brother, his best friend. At least, that's the lie he tells himself.
Ms. Johnstone's delightful and heartwarming tale of misplaced love and loyalty will endear you to each character. I loved how each strove in their own ways to protect the ones they held most dear all the while still not seeing the truth right in front of their eyes and bungling it despite their best intentions. The little nod to My Fair Lady was a refreshing spin.
My Seductive Innocent
Nathaniel Ellison, the Duke of Scarsdale, has vowed that he is not the man those closest to him believe him to be, one with a good heart and the capacity to love deeply. Sophia Vane is young, idealistic and dreaming of a better life for herself and her young half-brother. She refuses to accept that all she's ever going be is a tavern "wench" working for her drunken and scheming father for the rest of her days.
Ms. Johnstone is one of my favorite authors for she never fails to deliver a great story with compelling plots and diverse characters. You get emotionally invested in each of them and you never want the story to end and this is no exception.
My Enchanting Hoyden
Philip De Vere, Lord Harthorne, is conflicted. Despite his every effort to turn around the crushing debt and financial ruin left by his late father, he finds his only salvation is to marry for money which his poet's heart and soul is adamantly against. After tragedy befalls them, Jemma Adair and her twin sister Anne have no choice but to call upon their wealthy grandfather, a man they have never met and have very specific opinions about, to save them from a life on the streets in America.
I loved this book! Julie Johnstone puts together a wonderful story of what lengths/sacrifices a person would do in the name of love. With misconceptions and ill-conceived notions, blended with a little mischief and poetic prose, her characters are interesting and their lives believable which kept me turning until THE END.
My Fair Duchess is the first in what I hope is a very long series! Aversely and Amelia have wonderful chemistry that comes alive throughout the story. I love that Amelia isn't the typical perfectly physical beauty. Her ability to show her wits and intellect to match up with this magnificently matched man ultimately win her a dream. The dialogue and the story stay true throughout for an excellent and realistic visit during the regency period. Julie Johnstone is a historically accurate writer and a fabulous storyteller as well. I look forward to reading all of the books in an excellent first in the series.
My Seductive Innocent (A Once Upon A Rogue Novel Book 2)
Her heroine is simply wonderful. Sophia has been disillusioned by life and yet she still has hope. She has never allowed the difficulties of life to quash the sliver of hope that lingers in her. When she meets Nathan, her whole world changes. Throughout all these changes, she stays true to the person she is. I think this is one of the many things I liked about this book. Sophia retained her character regardless of the drama and issues. She was a real person with emotions that were entirely relatable. Nathan describes her as, “Sophia was not a beauty on the outside, but on the inside, she might just possibly be an Incomparable. With Sophia’s naiveté, her enthusiasm couldn’t be calculated and you felt all the love she poured into her embrace.
I loved that this book had similar plot to a classic on my shelf. It made the book comforting and also exciting to read. Julie Johnstone is a very talented author who has taken a story that could have been so typical and made it special and new.
My Enchanting Hoyden (A Once Upon A Rogue Novel Book 3)
Jemma Adair had me laughing out loud with her mischievousness.This girl is a hoot and I just loved her. She's sweet, charming in her own way, mischievous, creative, a little sassy, and this girl has spunk. She has also had her heart broken, lost her mother way too soon, had to grow up quickly, and wants to protect her younger (twin) sister Anne from all the hurts of the world.
Philip De Vere, Lord Harthorne, is responsible for his mother and takes care of all the finances. The problem being there isn't much in the way of finances to keep. He is need of a solution to their money problems and he needs that solution sooner rather than later. So he sets out to fall in love with or at least like with a lady that has a nice dowry. He'd rather marry for love then money but a Lord has to do what a Lord has to do to take care of things.When Philip meets Jemma the friction and tension between these two is humorous. Once Phillip and Jemma get a chance to know each other though they find they have common interest and form a friendship.
