When I began this one, I knew immediately it was going to be fun, and it totally delivered a lot of delicious funny scenes and crazy scenarios.
Now with the author it’s always something unexpected the way it will come to it, but I have grown fond of her twists and little craziness too, her characters are so alive.
And this regency was absolutely fantastic with everything.
I mean Valentine it’s not anything short of trashed out from this twins, I mean give chase really, what’s this pride and prejudice all over again? love it, and even when he wasn’t Mr. Darcy he did tried hard to understand and to do whatever it was asked of him, i do think a lot of people will be able to identify themselves with him really, we do tend to live like that a lot.
I have to say Bonny was so adorable, he was easy the favorite on this whole thing, he was so fun and charismatic and so obviously a flirt I loved him for the first moment.
Arabella wasn’t unreasonable really, I do think her problem was maybe getting her point across clearly or maybe Valentine was just a had headed man but damn running away not a good solution really.
Another perfect character was Valentine’s mom, she was so brilliant really, people tend to underestimate women more at those times, but we are very capable and have the best ideas sometimes.
By the end I was having so much fun I didn’t want it to end, the misunderstandings and the glorious realizations were amazingly enjoyable really, I think this book it’s perfect for that let go of so many expectations and just try to learn to live and have a little fun here and there learn to relax and be flexible..
A totally good time to have with this one.
About the book
Valentine Layton, the Duke of Malvern, has twin problems: literally.
It was always his father’s hope that Valentine would marry Miss Arabella Tarleton. But, unfortunately, too many novels at an impressionable age have caused her to grow up…romantic. So romantic that a marriage of convenience will not do and after Valentine’s proposal she flees into the night determined never to set eyes on him again.
Arabella’s twin brother, Mr. Bonaventure “Bonny” Tarleton, has also grown up…romantic. And fully expects Valentine to ride out after Arabella and prove to her that he’s not the cold-hearted cad he seems to be.
Despite copious misgivings, Valentine finds himself on a pell-mell chase to Dover with Bonny by his side. Bonny is unreasonable, overdramatic, annoying, and…beautiful? And being with him makes Valentine question everything he thought he knew. About himself. About love. Even about which Tarleton he should be pursuing.
