    3.5Well, I couldn t leave it at I need to take a break from this genre after the last disaster I usually read series in order Actually, I m a stickler when it comes to it I ve lost count of the series I haven t even started yet because I was planning to read the book in order I ve already read the fourth book and the last book in this series by accident and loved it I wasn t aware it s part of the series This one didn t disappoint If you re in the mood for a light Cinderella themed romance, you [...]

    2.5 5I have to admit that I was not impressed with this book, at all It was slow and rather dull But the biggest flaw, for me, was the fact that it was told almost entirely from the heroine s POV, with a very small handful of scenes told from Francesca s perspective secondary character, and the Matchmaker There wasn t even a hint of anything from Dominic s side It left the story very one sided and when I finished, I felt like I hardly knew Dominic at all, only what Constance saw and what other c [...]

    4.5 5 In a way, this book justifies my habit of reading books in a series completely out of order depending on availability or my moods It s a delight to reacquaint myself with Francesca and the haughty duke of Rochford The Courtship Dance , to pick up the nuances of their interactions knowing their hidden long suppressed feelings for one another It almost overwhelms the primary romance between Dominic and Constance in its intensity, despite each action and word being subtle and implied rather t [...]

    I was afraid that a misunderstanding or some devious actions by disapproving parents, however you d like to put it would destroy what Constance and Dominic had built a lovely relationship where both were free to be themselves Constance Woodley, on the shelf at twenty nine, is in London for the first time only to act as a companion to her two spoiled younger cousins Her aunt displays traditional evil stepmother tendencies, pressuring Constance to dress in drab, matronly clothing and ensuring that [...]

    Had such potential but the narrative completely ruined it for me we never hear the hero s perspective The Marriage Wager is the first in Candace Camp s Matchmaker Series and I wish I could give it a higher rating, but I just cannot bring myself to As others have remarked there was nothing really unusual or innovative about this book, but it would have been an enjoyable and sweet read if it hadn t been for one hugely annoying thing that I could not get over we never hear Dominic s thoughts Every [...]

    I really like Candace Camp She s a very accomplished and talented writer, and always enjoyable to read I really wanted to like this book, and would give it 3 stars if that rating was available It had a lot of good things going for it, and I was sorry not to be able to give it a higher rating Since so many other readers have done an excellent job of outlining the plot, I won t go into it in my review.What I really liked about the book had all the hallmarks of a good read by this author First of a [...]

    It may be due to my increasingly spinster like age, but it turns out that the aging and unweddable heroine is one of my favorite romance tropes I read the blurb on the back and this book went into the basket without a second thought I had to put this one down at one point, and it took me a really long time to get back to it I was afraid that a misunderstanding or some devious actions by disapproving parents, however you d like to put it would destroy what Constance and Dominic had built a lovely [...]

    Your heart goes out to Constance Woodley After the death of her father, her relations inherit her home and she becomes the unpaid help She has a kind heart and allows them to use and overlook her in her attempt to simply exist Her cousins are given a season and she is expected to chaperon the two spoiled self centered girls At a ball she is noticed by friends Lady Francesca Haughston and His Grace, the Duke of Rochford When Lady Francesca boasts that she could find a match for any girl of his ch [...]

    I really, really, really wanted to like this book The idea of the series appealed to me and I was looking forward to reading the first book in it The book started out well, but there really wasn t much development between the hero and heroine in the story I was over half way done with the book and the two lead characters had only had a few brief very brief conversations Overall, the story took a long time to develop and I just felt it didn t work I have the other books in the series in my TBR pi [...]

    HmmOkay, overall I wasn t impressed I m not sure if the reasoning is simply because it s been so long since I ve perused a Camp novel, or if this plot just didn t speak to me Either way, one huge mark against The Marriage Wager was the fact that Camp did not delve into the hero s Dominic perspective Sticking primarily to Constance s and Dominic s sister, Francesca s, perspective I felt the story was severaly lacking.In the general sense, the plot was far too simple Girl is invisable Girl is turn [...]

    Liked it One thing really bothered me though view spoiler when the hero and heroine get caught in the rain and seek shelter at the convenient cabin nearby and H h proceed to discard their wet clothingYou know what happens, but the whole time they know that the rest of their party from the outing was nearby and of course these people are going to be wondering about them and waiting for them And then of course they ARE waiting when the couple returns after a couple of hours Would they really not b [...]

    This is my first exposure to this author and I m anxious to finish this series A wager on matchmaking ability by one pair of friends leads to an unexpected pairing from a poor young woman and a noble who needs to make a wealthy match to shore up the failing estate he will inherit.The ending is very satisfying and not the usual doings you expect in a book that draws heavily on the usual ton doings No magic fix just love and hard work lie ahead for the happy couple You ll like the main characters [...]

    the book is very well written, it has both agnst and pleasant part where it needs to be it was an enjoyable book to read, and it didin t drag on like some books tend to or rush along the chemestry and it would seem forcedl in all a great book of the things i liked about the book is that francessca didn t seem to notice that constance and dominic had an attraction for each other of the things that i didn t like was when the father tries to make constance as a theif but the only good thing about i [...]

    Absolutely wonderful read I love the Regency period, and author Candace Camp captivated the era perfectly and was spot on historically speaking I highly recommend this book to any avid reader and lover of historical romance.

    Aww another sweet romance Loved the characters in this book And I loved the story However There were a few parts I had to skip I hate when detailed bedroom scenes get thrown in then half way through the book Seriously wish books had ratings

    Ho adorato questo primo libro della saga tra scommesse, balli, amicizie e non, giri per negozi di moda, tutto quello che ruota intorno ai nostri protagonisti e agli ostacoli che devono superare Un libro che si legge in un soffio con personaggi descritti benissimo Costance, una ragazza dolce che nella vita voluta stare ad aiutare il padre fino a che purtroppo se n andato Ma anche Leighton, che ha avuto momenti difficoltosi e per queste cose diventato un personaggio pi forte di quello che era un t [...]

    I was teetering on giving this book 2.5 stars I just didn t feel it The chemistry and love story didn t work The hero was just eh I hated the way Constance dealt with the situation by running away If I had been Lord Leighton, I would have said good riddance The author s writing was clunky and overly descriptive in a new writer kind of way Not my favorite.

  24. Nat

    Too much internal monologue and descriptions The setup is perfect for humor but it s implied not demonstrated Not enough dialogue or banter.

    Quotes Storyline I liked view spoiler Loc.1695 1708 She remembered the last time that she had been alone with Leighton and what had happened then She looked up into his eyes and saw them light suddenly, and she knew that he had thought of that kiss, as well I know I could not resist you last time, so how can you trust me now That is what you think, is it not A valid questions, surely, she retorted a little breathlessly That time was a lark, he replied softly I did not know you, never thought to [...]
