Beschreibung

Set in New York City’s Gilded Age, Joanna Shupe’s first book in her Four Hundred series features an English beauty with a wicked scheme to win the man she loves—and the American scoundrel who ruins her best laid plans…

Lady Honora Parker must get engaged as soon as possible, and only a particular type of man will do. Nora seeks a mate so abhorrent, so completely unacceptable, that her father will reject the match—leaving her free to marry the artist she loves. Who then is the most appalling man in Manhattan? The wealthy, devilishly handsome financier, Julius Hatcher, of course….

Julius is intrigued by Nora’s ruse and decides to play along. But to Nora’s horror, Julius transforms himself into the perfect fiancé, charming the very people she hoped he would offend. It seems Julius has a secret plan all his own—one that will solve a dark mystery from his past, and perhaps turn him into the kind of man Nora could truly love.

    The basis for this is a fake engagement, which I can usually get behind but the heroine was in "luv" with another man for over half of story which is what I can't usually get behind. I had a really hard time feeling it between the hero and heroine. The hero felt a little same old, same old and his family relationship with his mother and sister had them feeling like caricature villains. The heroine had some incredible obtuse moments with not understanding how situations could be dangerous to her and why she might not want to fully blacken her reputation.

    I really enjoyed the different Knickerbocker time period and the author did a great job describing the over-the-top grandeur. Relationships between characters felt forced or didn't flow well to me but there was something to the author's writing, I just need it to break free from the paint-by-numbers feel.

    WOW
    Once again, Shupe delivers a delicious diversion. I adore this historical period, and she creates a fantastic love story within it that just kept me turning those pages.

    A trope that usually doesn't bother me—character X falling in love with character Y while supposedly in love with/committed to character Z—really bothered me here. I also didn't understand why Poppy was introduced and played up and then just kind of disappeared. It almost felt like she was set up to be a villainess and then dropped in favor of someone else. And the hero's big vengeance storyline was rather easily and neatly wrapped up at the end in order to get to the HEA. In short, there were a lot of sub-plots that felt half-baked and it just left me underwhelmed.
