Prudence, was horrified - having been in love with Nicholas since the very first day she'd met him. Yet, married they'd be - the very next day!
With the help of Flora, a retired demimonde and `fashion editor' of the paper, and the Crimson ladies, Prudence, began to reveal qualities that gave Nicholas food for thought. Soon Nicholas was regretting his plans for an`in-name-only'marriage, and was formulating plans to make Pru his wife in all ways.
*** This was a delightful finale to the charming Ladies Fashionable Cabinet trilogy featuring, Nicolas and Prudence. Uniquely stand-alone this was a look at a marriage forced upon two individuals who in appearance were as different as night and day. Nicolas, the too handsome for his own good, charming, outgoing personality while Pru the complete opposite - small in stature, embarrassingly shy, and relatively content to blend into the background while letting others shine. What was unique was that she didn't turn into a swan overnight, rather making the most of her other attributes. While Nicholas did fall in love/lust with her, it was more for the beautiful person he saw, while her looks, which truly were never that bad once she removed all the accoutrements she used to hide them, revealed a more subtle beauty. The humor was charming as Pru tried to put into practice the lessons of flirting and seduction received from Flora and the Crimson ladies - suffice it to say, Pru didn't turn into a seductress. What was really important though, was how Pru came to realize that as `perfect' as she thought Nicholas was, she finally discovered he wasn't and she had gained enough confidence to give him a wake up call when she pointed it out to him. This was truly a divine read, a slow, yet very moving and truly romantic experience. --- Marilyn, for [...]
Prudence Armitage had a few hidden secrets that were revealed as the plot progressed.
The hero, Nicholas, and the heroine, Prudence were both very likeable people. Her father caught them in awkward (but innocent) circumstances.
Read the book to find out how it was all resolved.
In this book the characters are well-developed, but the heroine is a wimp. Why do all these women feel that being compromised even when they haven't done anything means they have to get married? How about telling society to take a flying leap instead. Then she continues being a wimp after she's married.
The hero, although he supposedly believes in rights for women, is unable to treat his wife as an equal. This leads to a conflict at the end of the book. Is the conflict resolved by examination of his actions and principles? No, a solution falls from the sky.
