About this deal
She's got just twelve weeks to find a rich husband and save her sisters - and she must use every ounce of cunning and ingenuity she possesses to climb London society if she is to succeed.
Además el libro posee un ritmo que no decae en ningún momento, se lee fácil y rápidamente y engancha un montón. The ending had the kind of heart-fluttery tenderness that made me want to pause and immediately re-read! No diría que el libro me recuerde a otros de Jane Austen, pero sí a muchos de otras escritoras contemporáneas como Julia Quinn, Mary Balogh o Gaelen Foley.I feel I must inform you that I come with four sisters, a badly leaking roof, and a veritable ocean of debt. And although overall I really liked the various conversations between Kitty and Radcliffe, to me there was always something a little off about their relationship. Sure, Kitty is beautiful, but according to Radcliffe, she's also a "scheming viper, "a demon," "an infection," the worst sort of villain," etc.
With no title, no parents, and no fortune, Kitty has to use all her cunning to push her way in the top echelons of London society. Estaba pasando un momento de desconexión del mundo literario y este título me llamó la atención e hizo que me apeteciera ponerme a leer. It engaged me, made me laugh throughout the book and really made me love the main characters over time. It did follow more of a traditional regency formula than offerings by other more current day authors such as Julia Quinn for instance, and I liked that it was a clean cut romance. I won't mince words here: this was a very, very bland book, not a single shred of personality to be found anywhere.Admito que estoy muy susceptible con las nuevas publicaciones de Regencia tras el boom Bridgerton, pero éste libro me ha parecido un acierto dentro del manido mundo del romance histórico. This is a frothy pleasure, full of brilliant repartee and enticing wit—one that readers will find an irresistible delight. The house which is home to herself and her four sisters is about to be taken from them if they don't come up with the money owing.
Radcliffe too is a well fleshed out character, and I enjoyed the insight we get into his backstory, his fighting at Waterloo and his relationship with his deceased father. Kitty e Jamie são fantásticos juntos, apesar de demorar bastante e serem os últimos a se aperceberem disso. Come down the travelators, exit Sainsbury's, turn right and follow the pedestrianised walkway to Crown Walk and turn right - and Coles will be right in front of you.Radcliffe’s banter with Kitty is charming and their strong love-hate connection is what elevates the story further. I thought Martyr was going to be a literary no-brainer for me, a novel that I wouldn't even have to think about because it was pretty much guaranteed that I'd love it. Unlike Heyer, there is no on-page bigotry, thankfully (though the world is very white and straight, like most trad pub historical romances). A principled yet ruthless Miss Kitty Talbot determined to do everything to save her home and her sisters by snaring a landed gentleman and cynical yet fiercely protective of his own family Lord Radcliffe who alone sees through her schemes. Only Kitty doesn't reckon for Lord Radcliffe, who is determined to thwart her from entrapping his brother.
En otras circunstancias un personaje tan mercenario como Kitty no me habría gustado, pero en el fondo es tan sincera y natural, y tan fiel lo que siente por su familia, que no puede caerte mal. i can only imagine how their lives will be after marrying<333 their families will fit perfectly together. I also really enjoyed the different family dynamics within the story, be it relating to Kitty and her sisters or the De Lacey family. A Lady's Guide to Fortune-Hunting is Sophie's debut novel and it has already sold in nearly thirty countries worldwide. The only person she can't fool is Lord Radcliffe, who sees straight through her plans, and is determined to stop her at any cost.Her love and passion for historical fiction bring a breath of fresh air and a contemporary energy to the genre, and Sophie hopes to transport readers to a time when ballrooms were more like battlegrounds.
