Rules for a Lady A lady does not attempt to come out in London society disguised as her deceased half sister A lady does not become enad of her guardian even though his masterful kisses and whispered words of affection tempt her beyond all endurance A lady may not climb barefoot from her bedroom on a rose trellis, nor engage in fisticuffs with riff raff in order to rescue street urchins No matter how impossible the odds, a lady always gives her hand and her heart though not necessarily in that order to the one man who sees her as she truly is and loves her despite her flagrant disobedience of every one of the rules for a lady

    I forced myself to finish this thing I don t know why I bothered Bristles with annoying tropes and characters We start with the first trope the pretending to be someone else pretending to be rich one Which can be rather charming, as with Heyer s Arabella There the deception is rather innocent and done on impulse Here it s calculating and self interested and totally unbelievable The heroine simply buries her nasty but sickly half sister under her own name No questions asked Easy I forced myself to finish this thing I don t know why I bothered Bristles with annoying tropes and characters We start with the first trope the pretending to be someone else pretending to be rich one Which can be rather charming, as with Heyer s Arabella There the deception is rather innocent and done on impulse Here it s calculating and self interested and totally unbelievable The heroine simply buries her nasty but sickly half sister under her own name No questions asked Easy peasy Then we have rescuing the urchin Again, in Arabella which seems to be a main source of this book s tropes, this can be heartfelt and show a serious side to the heroine s character or it can be a rather obvious attempt to give the heroine some redeeming characteristics Since the heroine then goes on to listen at keyholes, barge into conversations without knowing what they re about, pick locks and read private diaries and then, with jaw dropping gall, berate the victim for not mentioning HER , climb down trellises barefoot in the middle of the night and promptly get herself into a potentially deadly fix not once but TWICE she ends up needing a lot of redeeming and a whole host of urchins have to be called in to do the job Needless to say it all works out in the end as it must as long as you have urchins handy to foist on the hero and you love your mommy Sigh Possibly I m being too hard on this book I was looking for light reading, but I m truly not in the mood for this kind of la la la I can do whatever I like and there are never any consequences foolishness as I watch the pandemic statistics grow

    Yikes I started this two and a half years ago, and only got through a third of it at first.I didn t bother to restart and just proceeded from where I left off before, so I didn t know all the history and how Gillian became Amanda.And she annoyed me at first this time around I know that thwarting the rules were all for the benefit of maintaining her true self, even as she masqueraded as her half sister, but she couldn t seem to meet Stephen halfway But all s well that ends well The be Yikes I started this two and a half years ago, and only got through a third of it at first.I didn t bother to restart and just proceeded from where I left off before, so I didn t know all the history and how Gillian became Amanda.And she annoyed me at first this time around I know that thwarting the rules were all for the benefit of maintaining her true self, even as she masqueraded as her half sister, but she couldn t seem to meet Stephen halfway But all s well that ends well The beginning of the end was when Stephen rescued her from a harrowing experience that could have beenbrutal if he hadn t gotten to her in time, thanks to little Tom , and when wise old Mom finally gave her son a verbal smack upside the head Thanks to Geoffrey and Sophia for graciously backing down and letting Stephen and Gillian have their happily ever after.Maybe I ll readof Ms Lee s books But not right now On to some others I d temporarily quit I should finish my Currently Reading pile before moving on to fresh books
