This was my first Julia Quinn book. I'm sorry to say I didn't like it very much. I thought the characters were shallow, and their love at first sight didn't really ring true to me; it seemed too much like "lust at first sight" than love? In other words, there seemed to be nothing attracting them to each other except their exceptional good looks. The misunderstanding that kept them apart was kind of weak. Why should Robert leave for London after months of "loving" Victoria, it didn't make sense. Even if he thought she was nothing but a fortune hunter (and if he loved her, why would he immediately jump to that conclusion after months of "love"). He would have had more respect from me if he had confronted her. Oh well. I might try another Julia Quinn book, but this novel really didn't impress me so it's going to be difficult for me to try her again.

An earlier effort from a budding good writer. Simply-plotted. Lacking in understanding of the difference between romance integral to plot and extraneous padding of graphic imagery. Characterizations less mature than her later books, but the humor is fun - an enjoyable read.

Not as funny as some of Quinn's others. A little more predictable.

Julia Quinn is incomparable when it comes to dialogue. Her characters come across as real people saying and thinking things that real people say and think. They're funny, sad, gentle, sensual, loving, lovable and unforgettable!

This is the story of the star-crossed lovers who fall in love, get separated and then meet again.. he wants revenge, she wants to erase him from her history. They both fail.

Lovely book, lovely read.

A good fast read for summer. It's light heart-ed and fun but not very heavy on the plot.

The first in the Lyndon sisters 2-book series (followed by Brighter than the Sun --- my very favorite) this book takes a typical star-crossed lovers story and turns it on its ear. Very enjoyable characters, especially the leading man. Not as funny as the other Quinn novels, but definitely a romantic story.

STARCROSSED

It was indisputably love at first sight. But Victoria Lyndon was merely the teenaged daughter of a vicar. . .while Robert Kemble was the dashing young earl of Macclesfield. Surely what their meddlesome fathers insisted must have been true-that he was a reckless seducer determined to destroy her innocence. . . and she was a shameless fortune hunter. So it most certainly was for the best when their plans to elope went hopelessly awry.

MOONSTRUCK

Even after a seven-year separation, Victoria-now a governess-still leaves Robert breathless. But how could he ever again trust the raven-haired deceiver who had shattered his soul? And Victoria could never give her heart a second time to the cad who so callously trampled on it the first. But a passion fated will not be denied, and vows of love yearn to be kept. . . even when one promises the moon.

Seven years ago she broke his heart...
When Robert Kemble stubles across Victoria Lyndon in a hedgerow maze, he can't believe his eyes. The girl who'd torn him in two, who let him plan an elopement and then left him standing by the side of the road, was suddenly within arm's reach, and even though his fury still knew no bounds, she was impossible to resist...

Seven years ago he left her in all but ruined...
Victoria's father had told her an earl would never marry a vicar's daughter, and he was right. Robert had promised her marriage, then danced off to London while she suffered the shame of a foiled elopement. But even though Victoria doesn't particularly enjoy her new life as a governess, when Robert offers her a job of a different sort- his mistresss- she refuses, unable to sacrifice her honer, even for him.
But Robert won't take no for an answer, and he vows to make her his, though any means possible. Can these star-crossed lovers learn to trust again? And is love really sweeter the second time around?
good book
