Beschreibung

It takes a minx to tempt a rogue...Beautiful and feisty Henrietta Barrett has never followed the dictates of society. She manages her elderly guardian's estate, prefers to wear breeches rather than dresses, and answers to the unlikely name of Henry. But when her guardian passes away, her beloved home falls into the hands of a distant cousin.

And it takes a rogue to tame her...William Dunford, London's most elusive bachelor, is stunned to learn that he's inherited property, a title...and a ward bent on making his first visit his last. Henry is determined to continue running the Cornwall estate without help from the handsome new lord, but Dunford is just as sure he can change things...starting with his wild young ward. But turning Henry into a lady makes her not only the darling of the town, but an irresistible attraction to the man who thought he could never be tempted.

    The heroine is not really plain, but she believes herself to be unattractive because she is a tomboy, and is insecure about her femininity. There is a ton of angst and misunderstandings and other stuff right up my alley. I would LOVE to read more books like this. I loved how Henry just assumed no man would ever want her because she's so independent and brash and wears pants. More like this one, please! (4.5 stars)

    First read in June of 2011. Rating stands up to the re-read!

    Usual good standard at the beginning. Tails off after half way.
  • (5/5)
    Probably the best of the trilogy! I was intrigued the whole book. The 2 major misunderstandings in the book felt a little prolonged but added to the drama so, I enjoyed it. If I had gone on much longer it would have been annoying. The lack of communication of the characters is frustrating but again, added to the drama. I could have done without the angry honeymoon scene and the many resentful arguments, but it ended well. I do think you have to read the first 2 to appreciate the characters though. Overall a great “read.”

    This book had me laughing so hard. The narration was priceless.

    The narrator’s voice was pleasant when she was speaking as the story teller, but her voices for the supporting female characters sounded like nails on a chalk board, will avoid this narrator in future. This was my least favorite Julia Quinn novel.
  • (4/5)
    Hilarously funny, but also exasperatingly longwinded in the description of emotional complications.

    Light as air and filled with sparkling witty dialogue. Henry, our heroine brought to mind Katherine Hepburn in almost every role she played, and that is all to the good. Dunford was a delightful honorable reformed rake. I did like the first half better than the second. The impediment to our HandH being together was one of those things that could have been easily cleared up and wasn't, and we lost all our witty repartee after that. Still, overall this was delightful.

    I have always liked Dunford in the previous 2 books but I loved Dunford in this book with Henry!! The sexual tension and hot scenes are priceless! The Book was so funny as well, and boy did Rufus the Rabbit make me laugh! Dunford and Hen's story became one of my favorite love stories of all time, every man should love like Dunford!!
    My TOP favorite Julia Quinn book!! Read it 100 of times!

    Oh fun, after the first two books in the series, I was ready to see Dunford get a little action.So he inherits a property in Cornwall, becomes friends with the farm girl who runs the place, then discovers he's been made her guardian. Of course he dresses her up and trots her off to London to get some polish - and possibly a husband. High jinx, angst, and canoodling ensue.

    What a great story! I laughed and cried many times! Such wonderful writing and really engaging characters!! I love this authors work!!

    I am currently on a Regency kick and this one was terrific!!

    Started out very promising, but got bogged down a little in the middle. From there she goes straight into cliche. I was disappointed enough that I actually didn't bother reading the sex scenes of the last few chapters.

    This book was a little slow going which is really odd for a Julia Quinn story. But it gets better as it goes on and ends up being a cute book. I believe it was one of her career starting books, so that's why it may sound a little badly written. Henry is not a woman to be toyed with. An orphan with only one distant relative to turn to, she finds that she loves the only place she can call home. So much so that she decides to run it, and successfully too. Dunford has recently found himself with a new title and a new piece of land...plus a new ward. Henry is like no one he has ever met. She is forward, courageous, sweet, and beautiful underneath her mannish clothes. But how could he want her, his own ward? That was tacky and ungentlemanly to the extreme. Can he fight his desire for the girl he can never touch and can Henry overcome her fear of polite society to become a woman?

    Not only is JQ enormously funny, but her heroines are always tremendously likeable and this one is no exception. This book made me laugh a lot, but also made me cry and that's no small feat, believe me.

    Really only read this to complete the series because somehow it lacked the sparkle of some of Quinn's other books. Dunford and Henry were likeable enough, but I couldn't care whether they got together or not.

    Very much a so-so romance, and I have realized I now detest the endearment "minx!" Tom-boy girl, who goes by the name of Henry, falls for an English lord in Cornwall who turns out to be her guardian. She's been living on the estate he has just inherited - and managing it very well. They get off to a rocky start but then become close friends. He doesn't realize he's her guardian at first, but when he does he soon realizes he's in a big dilemma. All he wants to do is seduce her! But he can't - because he's her guardian. So he tries to find her a husband instead, but no one is good enough. Then they go to London and lah dee dah they fall in love. But, then two weeks before the wedding they have this BIG misunderstanding that ruins everything! Unhappy first month of marriage, what a waste! Uggh! Slow beginning, hum drum middle and then angsty ending! Not my favorite JQ romance, I'm afraid.

    i liked it mostly. the ending i felt was- ugh. o the right up until that moment the book was very enjoyably and typical Quinn novel. i am glad to see she stopped with such about faces and stupidity in her characters. this is one of her earlier works. all of a sudden henry is no longer forthright and confrontational; instead she assumes the worst and tries to destroy her marriage. yeah, i found that highly annoying.

    As I have said in previous reviews Ms. Quinn is a wonderful writer even in these earlier books. I have always enjoyed her work and will always recommend her to those that like historical romance. That being said if I could I would have given with 3.5 stars instead for the 4. The main reason is that I don't enjoy reading the "big misunderstanding" plot line stories. I know that there isn't that many ways to write and story and that the author sometimes doesn't have a choice in the way the characters tell their story to her. The whole idea is like nails on a chalkboard to me. This story starts building toward the "big misunderstanding" very early in the book. I could see it coming and with no way to avoid it.All that being said the story is very good and the characters are enjoyable. I have like Dunford since the first time he appeared in a story. He has always been a kind, caring and patient man. He is very intelligent and well deserving of the title that he receives in the story. He also deserves all the happiness that he finds. It would have been nice if he hadn't had to suffer quite so much. It would have been nice if he had just been honest with Henry so much sadness could have been avoided. It does work out in the end which I was very glad about.Henrietta Barrett is a very unconventional woman for this time period. It isn't often that you find a woman running an estate at such a young age and with such enthusiasm. Henry love Stannage Park and she has worked very hard to make it a wonderful place. For that reason she isn't a confident about relationships with men. It is sad that men in this time period look down on women that were willing to do an honest days labor. Henry is intelligent, open and honest to a fault. She is also beautiful, compassionate and caring of those she considers family and friends. I like her for the most part. However she just never seems to find her stride with men. If she really did love Dunford than I would think that she would trust him enough to let him explain the problem that causes all the problems between the two of them.

    I really want to read the next book in this series but the narration is terrible. Couldn’t even get past the first chapter
