Love, or money, which is more important?
This answer to this dilemma for Sir Colin Tate, a newly-minted baronet, is most definitely money. While his father might have been the most celebrated artist in England at the time, it is Colin who becomes saddled with a mountain of debt and presented with no means of escape but to become a fortune hunter and marry an heiress. However, he has only three months to charm an heiress into marry him, before the nature of his finances become public knowledge and thus forfeiting his chances at a rich dowry. A chance encounter with the intriguing Lady Beatrice (Bea) Moore at his society come-out has convinced him of two things: 1) Her rank is far beyond his to even consider courtship, and 2) She is the most charming lady he had ever met.
Likewise, Bea is immediately taken with Colin, not only because he is the son of her favorite artist and can introduce her to the amazing, artistic world of his father, but also because she felt an undeniable affinity with this charming man whose smiles brighten up her day. To say that it was love at first sight for the two is an understatement, for it was more like a melding of souls and personalities. Colin, who is normally a solemn man, naturally assumes a teasing grace with Bea that he never knew he had, and appreciates Bea's intelligence, talent, and beauty. Bea is adorably forward in her interactions with Colin, and finds in him all the traits she ever wished for in a husband. With two such compatible people and no villains in the story, what could be the problem?
Unfortunately, in her years of being a debutante, Bea has grown jaded and wary of fortune hunters.Read more ›
This is the third book in the Sealed With A Kiss series, although you can read it without having read the first two. (However, they are both greatly recommended!)
The story revolves around Lady Beatrice Moore, a woman from a wealthy family, and Sir Colin Tate, the son of a famous artist who is trying to make good on his late father's debts. Lady Beatrice would rather focus on her art than deal with fortune hunters out looking for a rich wife. But after a surprise meeting with Colin, she finds herself intrigued with him. Colin, whose father was an artist that Bea admired greatly, has come to England's high society with the goal of finding a wealthy wife. This is not because he is a horrible man, but rather because as the head of his family, he needs to take care of his family back home in Scotland. Colin finds himself falling in love, but struggles with the inner conflict of his original quest. He knows if the truth comes out to Bea, she will never forgive him. But how can he turn his back on the woman he loves?
I have to say that Ms. Knightley's style of writing is wonderful! One of my favorite scenes in the book is when Colin and Bea share their first kiss. As she leads up to the kiss, I actually had butterflies in my stomach the way I did when I kissed my own husband for the first time. Ms. Knightley is able to write a scene where the reader feels as though she is living through the main characters. You can't help but be excited when they are excited, smile with them in their happiness and cry when Bea's world is shattered with revelation of the true reason behind Colin's search for coming to town.
I definitely recommend adding it to your to-be-read list!
I thought this book was okay as far as the plot. I did not feel drawn into the story, which could have been much better.
To me there was no spark between the main characters and the writer was so wordy, almost for the sake of filling pages with little information added regarding the characters. Just did not like Beatrice, I felt she was a spoiled groupy and only interested in Colin because his father was a famous artist. She was selfish and only saw things through her perspective. Colin was more likeable, but did not have the passion that was alleged by many of the reviewers.
I would not reccommend this book.
