    1. The hero was illegally impressed onto a Navy ship as a regular seaman It was apparently illegal to impress a gentleman, but regular men were fair game and forced to serve for several months The experience has changed his life given him a respect for the lower classes, and for hard work He s also been injured, and now that his relations have found him, they ve arranged for him to recuperate at the country home of a gentleman He s in pretty bad shape when he arrives, so the heroine is pretty snoot [...]


    2. Society s Most Disreputable Gentleman is a most charismatic gentleman indeed Julia Justiss has created a charming character study of Greville Anders, the only son of a nobleman s younger son Without a title, and a clear ambition, Greville lives a life of seemingly carefree debauchery After serving a minor role in the battle of Waterloo, Greville returns home and is made the manager of one of his titled cousin s minor estates Willingly turning over the management duties to one of his associates, [...]



    3. 2.5 Con esta historia tarde demasiado porque me resulto tediosa la forma en que la autora escribe, entre m s segu a leyendo me result pesado y poco entretenido Si bien, el romance no me pareci la gran cosa, quiz porque Amanda no causo una buena impresi n en mi ya que no la saque de quejica y de que no quer a tener serca al protagonista pero era la primera en ir y buscarlo, simplemente esa contradicci n me fastidiaba junto con su actitud Por otro lado, Greville, era un personaje normal que no me [...]


    4. IS ONE NIGHT WITH AN INFAMOUS RAKE WORTH THE RISK Wounded in action courageously fighting pirates, the notorious Greville Anders returns to society with neither the dress nor the conduct considered proper for a gentleman Even scandalous is the fact that well brought up debutante Amanda Neville finds this rogue irresistibly tempting It was her mama s last wish that her beautiful daughter should have a glittering London Season, shine on society s stage and marry a lord But now Amanda s greatest d [...]


    5. Obviously I knew it would work out well given the category, but I still liked the book It was a fast, simple read that kept me engaged for a few hours without having to worry about work I enjoyed the depth of the characters and the way they interacted with each other Some of the characters were annoying, and I felt like a few of the conflicts had no resolution I don t remember reading anything about Black John after he takes Amanda captive and then leaves her Do they catch him And what about Geo [...]


    6. The characters had me at first glance Greville Anders, the most disreputable gentlemen of the title had me as he got out of the coach at Ashton Grove although Amanda Neville took me a little longer to warm up to forgetting the way young ladies of that age were brought up and the class differences Of course, in little time, I took to rooting for Greville to overcome Amanda s idea of what she should do and convince her to do what she wanted to do I often am glad I was not born of that time with it [...]


    7. Very, very enjoyable book D Amanda Neville is a country bred lady set to finally have her first Season when her father agrees to house Greville Anders a gentleman illegally impressed into the Navy and wounded in battle during his recuperation What follows is a charming tale of two people who each think they want one thing, only to realize that their desires had changed.I love the way that both characters show great emotional growth during the course of the book,and both were immensely likeable.T [...]


    8. Rather unique in that our hero was an impressed seaman and, although possessed of connections, untitled It was interesting to witness Greville s character growth and his desire to amend past wrongdoings However, the story really doesn t take off until at least halfway through when Amanda goes to London for her season It was also nice to revisit prior characters A decent read but not very exciting 3.2 stars.


    9. I have fallen in love with this series and just can t seem to stop myself from reading them However, I just did not love this book It was a slow read for me There was nothing that really pulled me in.


    10. N o h grande coisa a dizer dos livros Harlequin As est rias s o semelhantes, personagens tipo para praticamente todos os livros.Estes romances servem para uma pausa entre livros s rios.De notar que neste livro n o notei os tipicos erros a que j me habituei nos livros Harlequin.




    11. Though it started slow, ended up really enjoying this Just a simple and cute love story, with two very like able protagonists, well worth a snowy morning read.
