Gail suspected early in life that one of her Gemini personalities was a writer. The challenge was finding out what kind of stories she wanted to write. The elegant language, the history and the social structure of the time all appealed to her in a way nothing else had. And having been born in Wales—and able to explore the magnificent castles and country houses dotting the landscape—she had no trouble imagining her characters wearing period costume and falling in and out of love within those ivy-covered walls.

This is instead one where the heroine rejects the hero's first proposal. Abbie has a good reason to reject Bart's proposal--early that day she caught him having sex with a married lady in the summer house. Hours later-with the OW's perfume still lingering on his body-Bart proposed.
Flash forward six years later. Abblie is still single and bearing her grandfathers h 2. Abblie is still single and bearing her grandfathers harsher treatment of her for years now since she turned down Bart's proposal. Stuff happens, but the jest is Abbie who has been angry for six years at Bart quickly forgives him because he was doing what men do.
It was stated so often throughout this story that his having sex with others in his youth sowing his oats so to speak even with a married woman that by the time the heroine says it I was mad at her for not letting him finish saying he was sorry for how and when he first proposed to her. I also found the hero a coward in his dealing with Abbie as an adult. He ran away from the conversation when she told him about seeing him and the OW having sex and avoided Abbie for awhile.
He also would not propose a second time until he was nudged by Abbie's grandmother. To me, this story was boring hence the 2. Aug 27, Kathy rated it really liked it Shelves: lost-love , regency , , content-yellow , frenemies. I ended up really enjoying this one, although there were a couple things that did rub me the wrong way. I thought our heroine Abbie was likable. I do wish she would have played a little harder to get at the beginning though.
Six years earlier she refused to marry Bart, after catching him in a compromising position. T I ended up really enjoying this one, although there were a couple things that did rub me the wrong way. The relationship between Bart and Abbie was nice, I enjoyed their courtship and Bart trying to win Abbie over. He has changed a lot over the years and you can understand why Abbie begins to fall for him.
I thought the story was well written, although a tad wordy in a few parts. I think Bart was obviously a different man then when he first proposed to Abbie six years ago. I get so extremely frustrated with the double standard held for men of that time.
But, aside from that double standard and immoral belief, the fact that Bart not only slept with a married woman, but then proposed to Abbie an hour later was a step beyond the normal sowing of oats, IMO.
Of course he should apologize and she should let him. I forgave him for the man he became and who had remorse for his past actions, not for simply being a man expected to sleep around with no consequences. Overall, I did really like the story and the characters.
I thought it was a fun read and definitely kept me entertained. Content: Pretty clean, mild innuendo more to do with memories of Abbie finding Bart in his compromising position. Romance between Abbie and Bart was clean. Jan 02, Sherie Davis rated it liked it. I thought there was a good mix of action and romance. Not too much internal monologue concerning the main characters feelings. Really enjoyed the supporting characters as well.
May 01, Ginny Rodenberg rated it it was amazing Shelves: bookshout. Abbie and Bart were thrown together by her Grandfather who wanted them to marry. After refusing Bart, Abbie is treated poorly by her.
Six years later she goes to stay with her Godmother and meets Bart again. Let the fun begin! Che ironia! Sep 20, Natalie rated it really liked it. Six years ago, Abbie refused to marry Bart, her grandfather's godson. Her grandfather was very put out, and has been cold to her since. Now, she is sent to visit her godmother in Bath, unaware that the reason she is sent is to meet Bart again.
As they are reaquainted, Abbie finds that perhaps her opinion of Bart, based on his actions six years ago, might be to harsh. Soon the two find themselves enjoying each-other's company, and feelings start evolving. However, someone is out to hurt them. I enj Six years ago, Abbie refused to marry Bart, her grandfather's godson.
I enjoyed this book. I liked the fact that the Hero wasn't perfect. He had his faults, and you could fall in love with him inspite of those faults, just as the Heroine did. Indeed, there weren't any sex scenes such as are common in other novels of this type, but I think that actually might have added to the sweet romance portrayed.
