Ar and came to see that as much as they threatened to do away with the other they could not live one without the other I feel that of all the stories by Heyer that I have read this was the most thought out of them all Those of you wondering it doesn t nd abruptly ScrumptiousI can t type it here the Spoiler Stasi would waterboard me but ZOMG this Foundations of Tropical Forest Biology: Classic Papers with Commentaries entirending is the outside of nough I pity the fool who doesn t indulge in the occasional Heyer A diet of them would be akin to steamed pudding for breakfast ueen of Puddings for lunch and a Pavlova for dinner but damme how they are like vintage champagne served with an xuisite ntremet Flushed with success from my recent reread of Venetia I cast caution to the wind and decided to take on another Georgette Heyer Regency novel I should have known I wasn t mentally up for another contrived plot yet Even Heyer s witty writing didn t save this one for meDeborah Grantham is a 25 year old with decent parentage but gambling runs in the family and between one thing and another she s nded up as a faro dealer at a London gambling house run by her aunt She s beautiful nough that she s attracted some attention from gentlemen who freuent the gambling beautiful nough that she s attracted some attention from gentlemen who freuent the gambling Mostly it s the wrong sort of attention but there s Lord Adrian the 20 year old heir to the Mablethorpe title who has fallen head over heels for her and wants to marry her His mother and uncle want to suash this inappropriate romance and they have two months to do it before he turns 21 and gets control Of His Fortune So his fortune So s uncle Max Ravenscar tracks Deborah down and decides the best way to handle her is to offer to pay her money a lot of money to send Adrian packing Deb and her aunt are in desperate need of money but Deb finds Max s offer so vastly insulting WHY that she not only turns down the money she declares that she ll wed Adrian just to spite Max One Ticket To Texas even though she actually has absolutely no intention of marrying young Adrian And so begins a battle royale between this obstinate couple and of course we all know where it s going from there but the fun is in the journey Except it just wasn t that much fun for meLook I get that Regencies aren txactly the poster child for plausibility When you look up the word contrived there s a picture of a Regency romance there or should be anyway And I ll confess that when I like the main couple and the plotline I ll do contrived plots with the best of them like Loretta Chase s Knave s Wager one of my guilty pleasures So what it comes down to is that I didn t like or care for the characters or their choices Helpmate enough to really make this book a winner for me Deb is basically an intelligent kindhearted cultured person but being around Max brings out the worst in her Her decision making process around him is knee jerk and irrational and I just don t do irrational Max well he s kind of a jerkven at the best of times though he does care about his family And they both have a sense of humor which saves the story from going completely off the rails The secondary characters didn t help me out a lot here Deb s aunt is one of those Art, Culture, and Cuisine: Ancient and Medieval Gastronomy extravagant spendthrift creatures that I dislike so much in fiction you see her counterpart in False Colours where she annoyed meven Adrian though he has potential is young and foolish Deb s brother mostly grovels and so onBut mostly this story revolves around the Big Feud between Max and Deb So if you love this kind of battle of the sexes plotline complete with farcical vents like a kidnapping a cultured woman dressing up like a tart and acting low class to mbarrass the guy and his family gambling away of fortunes Black British Cultural Studies: A Reader etc this might be a really great read for you.
