    1. Two very different reactions two years apart first time loved it, second time did notThis book would get a solid 5 if it weren t for that the ending comes up and hits you like a wall that suddenly appears while you re going 60 mph on the highway would have liked to catch my breath after everything works out with the obstacle subplot guessed the truth early on but was still well done and a nice twist and enjoyed the at last get together and I love yous of the HH although it was jarring, I wouldn [...]


    2. This book was enjoyable enough, but also annoying I have a few little issues with it The chick, Julia, is surprisingly dim witted and naive It s like she was born under a rock and has no idea how real life works Or, at least, her new life as a lady Julia is always described as prim and proper, but she constantly blurts whatever comes to mind, even if it s shocking, and that s how her cousin describes her that she s always blurting out shocking things The back and forth is irritating is she prim [...]


    3. This book is what I really needed in this time It is nice , light , funny and again funny I simply loved it.


    4. DNF.I liked the setup and premise Rake must marry into a specific family and remain without scandal for a year to inherit a fortune.But as the story progressed, the heroine grated on my nerves She s American but her father was English She has no money and lives as an unpaid servant with uncaring relatives that is becoming a bit cliche Once she marries the hero with half of his fortune and he has to pay for all of their living expenses, including her clothes and jewels all she can think of is bui [...]


    5. This was a fairly good read I really liked some of the secondary characters, which really held the whole thing together, from Nick and Therese to Lady B and Edmund I did have some issues with it though, which took the shine off for me, and knocked it down to a generous 2.5 stars It relies too heavily on a Big Misunderstanding, which doesn t pass muster with me I completely struggled to believe that two people who completely lust over each other couldn t have actually realized they lusted over ea [...]


    6. Reviewed Girls Without a Bookshelf.I used to shun Regency romance novels, preferring instead highland and medieval romances, but Karen Hawkin s The Abduction of Julia is a really good book that I think reading it might have led me to warm up to the sub genre It seems it only occured to me that the rigid etiquette of the ton and the double standards of their actions, not to mention the innumerable marriages of conveniences sets the scene for an endless array of hilarity and romance A marriage of [...]

    8. Maybe a 3.5 Hawkins is a default author for me Every time I walk into a bookstore or library, you can bet I am looking after J Quinn, James, and Kleypas to see if there is an unread Hawkins book to unearth.Her Scottish tales have been great to follow I could basically say the same for this one Julia Frant, the awkward chaperone to her cousin Therese, has a bit of a problem One night, she is swept bodily from her home and taken across England on the desperate whims of Alec Hunterston Alec, needin [...]


    9. 3.0 stars I skipped part of the book after 140 pages I bought this book because the blurb sounded interesting but in my eyes the story turned out to be worse than expected I read the first third of the book and NOTHING happened Yes, they married but other than that Julias and Alecs relationship doesn t develop in any way And I didn t see that Julia was secretly in love with Alec, she never talks or even THINKS about it As it seems she told him shortly after I started skipping that she was in lov [...]



    10.

    11. This is an oldie but a goodie It started out a little slow for me but when it picked up, I really enjoyed it Alec got schooled by Julia Here s what I mean.Alec McLean is desperate He must marry before his next birthday in order to claim his grandfather s wealth He promised his grandfather that he would keep the money away from his cousin, who wants nothing that to do mysterious deeds with it Unfortunately Alec waited too long to claim his bride and he only had a matter of hours to wed in order [...]


    12. This book had me at the first paragraph Its a good read makes you laugh out loud at some of the thing the hero says Alec MacLean, Viscount of Hunterston, must marry or he will lose the inheritance left to him by his grandfather But the will specify that he must marry the daughter of the Earl of Coverington There s a problem he has the wrong girl Perhaps there would be some benefits from this arrangement, after all You smell like heaven Kiss me, sweet Therese She kicked him Hard Owww Alec yelled, [...]


    13. 3.5 stars.I have come to the conclusion that I am going through some sort of phase.Indeed,it seems I ve become obsessed with historical romances these past few weeks,and especially the theme of arranged marriages marriage of convenience I was probably a very ambicious matchmaking mama in an other life This is my first Karen Hawkins novel,and the introduction to the Rogues series.Lord Hunterston or Alec,is a viscount who enjoys life s basic pleasures sex,alcohol and gambling He s also smokin hot [...]


    14. ADDITION I changed the rating to 5 because I just found out this IS actually part of a series and both Nick and Lucien get their own books so ignore the stuff about the epilogue below It would have been a 5 star rating except for the epilogue The epilogue to me is to wrap up questions events from the first part, to show how the HEA works and maybe to set up parts for a new book in the case of series To me, this epilogue raised many questions than it answered i.e Lucien twins dead wife And the h [...]


    15. A viscount plans with his latest lady to kidnap her and marry on the quick so he can fulfill the stipulations of his grandfather s will Alec discovers to late he has abducted Julia, the frumpy impoverished cousin and not the beautiful Therese Julia has loved him for years and offers to marry him as the deadline is midnight Alec agrees to meet her conditions no sex and split the money 50 50 so Julia can donate to her charities Despite her nicknmame of the Frant Dragon, Julia has beautiful grey ey [...]


    16. It took me a while, several chapters to be honest, to get into this book and I can t quite pin point why that was The story was defenitely nice but still it didn t grip me as some other books recently have done.I was really at the verge of putting it down and picking another book to read and that would have been a first because I ve never done that I always finish what I start But luckily I hung on and from chapter 6 7 I really got pulled into the storyMaybe because the story really began to tak [...]


    17. Not bad Over all though, I really enjoyed it The only thing that really got me was the end SPOILERS SPOILERS Nick just all of a sudden decides that he s going to leave the country and just let them have the fortune after everything he s done He repented SO easily In one paragraph he s all, I m killing Alec and taking the money and in the very next after Julia tells him that he can t inherit anything if he kills Alec , he s like, Well, I apologize Just let me pack my bags and move to Italy Puh le [...]


    18. About what you d expect from a book I found on the lending shelf at a beach resort in Mexico I didn t pack enough books This one was pretty good, but the heroine was tooth achingly good and sweet and pure, and the epilogue in particular made me want to kill people.The hero wasn t bad His evil cousin was downright interesting, and if he s redeemed by some other twit overly interested in charity work in a sequel, I hope I never find out.


    19. One of my personal favorites I come back to it from time to time to re read Hawkins writes for the simple enjoyment of a good romance and humourous characters that carry from book to book.


    20. Fue un libro entretenido aunque no tan extraordinario La verdad vale la pena para pasar un rato agradable Me visto el final qu se le dio a Nick y quisiera saber m s de l.



    21. Karen Hawkins pu anche avere un incantevole talento , come dice Mary Balogh, ma a me questo romanzo non piaciuto O meglio, mi piaciuto poco Va bene la commedia degli equivoci, va bene il matrimonio d affari che diventa d a, ma quando troppo troppo Possibile che lui sia talmente allupato passatemi il termine da non rendersi conto che lei innamorata di lui Ed possibile che lei lo ami cos tanto e si sciolga fra le sue braccia, poi non capisca che il rifiuto del marito alla consumazione del matrimon [...]


    22. It was good Kept me turning the pages, though It s Julia and Alec got on my nerves a few times She cried a lot and he acted dumb sometimes, but I liked the longing that he had for her and I understand why I kept the book I am looking forward to reading about Lucien and Nick.
