Antonia Mannering refused to become an old maid! She was a young woman with plans, and Lord Philip Ruthven played a large part in them. Though the childhood friends had not seen one another in years, she was perfectly aware that Philip had no lack of female companionship. But he had never married, and it was high time he did. If she could prove to him that she was capable of running his home and would not disgrace him in society, Antonia was certain he would propose a comfortable agreement. But never had she expected their hearts would somehow find their way into the bargain!
Great love story. Highly recommend!!

Review Date: 12/14/2005


This book more than fulfills the promise of Cunningham's 1990 debut, "A Home At The End of The World", while showing that sweep does no necessarily require the sprawl of his second book, "Flesh and Blood"....Cunningham's insightful use of the historical record concerning Virginia Woolf in her household outside London in the 1920's is matched by his audacious imagining of her inner life and his equally impressive plunge into the lives of Laura and Clarissa...Rich and beautifully nuanced scenes follow one upon the other....The overall effect of this book is twofold. First, it makes a reader hunger to know all about Woolf, again; readers may be spooked at times, as Woolf's spirit emerges in unexpected ways, but hers is an abiding presence, more about living than dying. Second, and this is the gargantuan accomplishment of this small book: it makes a reader believe in the possibiltiy and depth of a community based on great literature, literature that has shown people how to live and what to ask of life.

Wonderful Nora Roberts novel with 3 favorite Irish stories: Spellbound, Ever After and In Dreams. In "Spellbound", a beautiful lady casts a thousand-year spell on the man of her dreams-and unleashes a nightmare only love can conquer. "Ever After" follows an enchanting woman as she journeys to an otherworldly land-and introduces a handsome artist to the transforming power of love. "In Dreams" links a young woman to a stranger's past-and to the curse that has trapped him forever in the eternity of his own dreams. One of my favorites!!

Rogues' Reform: The Reasons for Marriage / A Lady of Expectations / An Unwilling Conquest
Review Date: 12/28/2005
Helpful Score: 2


Three Irresistable Tales of the Lester Family of Regency England by Master Storyteller Stephanie Laurens.

"The Reasons for Marriage"-Miss Lenore Lester was perfectly content with her quiet country life, and had no desire for marriage. She took steps to remain inconspicuous when managing her brothers' house parties, and tried her best to show indifference-but to no avail! The notoriously charming Duke of Eversleigh had found her out and was quite persistent in his affections...

"A Lady of Expectations"-What Jack Lester wanted in a wife was someone rather like his sister, Lenore-attractive, capable, someone he could converse with. Impossible, given the debutantes he had seen over the past few seasons! Yet it was essential that he make his choice before the society matrons discovered that the Lesters were no longer poor as church mice...

"An Unwilling Conquest"-Harry Lester had no intention of following his sister and brother into marriage. And to avoid the matchmakers who'd gotten wind of the news that the Lester family fortunes had been repaired, he left London for Newmarket, only to find himself rescuing Mrs. Lucinda Babbacombe, a beautiful, managing widow, who refused to accept his advice! But no matter that he could not quell his desire for her-marriage was definately out!

At twenty-five, Princess Adrianne lives a life most people would envy. Beautiful and elegant, she spends her days dabbling in charities and her nights floating from one glamorous gala to the next. But her pampered-rich-girl pose is a ruse, a carefully calculated effort to hide a dangerous truth.
