Rules For A Lady Kindle Ø Rules For Kindle -

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

    Gillian Ames decides to take the place of her dead half sister Amanda Faith Wyndham in London under the guardianship of Stephen Conley Earl of Mavenford They fight about proper conduct for a lady and discover boners for one another Feelings confessions etc 1 I feel like this is a good example of a trojan cake trope there's a lot of layers and some half assed icing but the actual innards of the thing are just hollow Midway through the story Gillian discovers herself in love with Stephen primarily it seems because of how handsome he is Other than several obnoxious arguments they don't truly converse about anything I do acknowledge that Lee does have evidence in the text that their arguments have resulted in Stephen's shifted worldview slightly but Gillian doesn't truly examine her actions or engage with Stephen's side of things at all Tie this to the lack of non arguing communication between them and I'm left wondering how we're meant to believe they have anything but boners for each other2 Gillian is headstrong and fiesty Stephen is autocratic and cold There isn't much else there to hang a book on3 I think my biggest problem with this is the tone of their scenes together Almost every argument from Stephen's POV ends with him acknowledging how his girl ward has manipulated him and almost every argument from Gillian's POV ends with her acknowledging how her overbearing guardian is trapping her in They don't feel like peers which means their relationship comes across much uneven and icky 4 It's bad news when I end up curious about the challenger for the lady's hand over that of the alleged hero JUST SAYIN'

    A fun regency book about a rebellious young lady trying to have her cake and eat it too Bucking the Rules of The Ton when she really doesn't know why they where put in place to begin with Coming within an inch of her life being ruined by cutthroats she is rescued by the Earl who is ruling her life and aggravating her the most of course he is the one that she in the end falls in love with despite all the barriers and reasons it shouldn't happen A good read for this type of book which I give a 48 due to spelling errors which young lady at this point if you are going to self publish should not happen Otherwise a fun and can't put down for this type of romance novel

    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 elsepretending 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 uestions 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 conseuences' foolishness as I watch the pandemic statistics grow

    A uite complex and engaging story with excellent hh good description excellent secondary characters and a mystery that only the hero does not figure out until the end In this the grandmother was a star Gillian ames buries herself and takes on her half sister's disguise to come to london for a season She has made her tombstone and gone to her guardian's home for a debut An Earl Stephen has an instant attraction to the hoyden riding on the top of the mail coach when he comes to collect her She is not a lady but she is fascinating loyal intelligent a healer and uite beautiful The plot has her rescue an urchin survive two attacks and near rape marry under a false name for her dowers to a maruis nearly under blackmail and goes off Meanwhile Stephen is in the bottle because he cannot marry a bastard until his grandmother says why not? she has known from the beginning He rides vent a terre to reach wedding ten minutes late but the catch a false name an annulment and Stephen the earl marries Gilliam Ames the bastard daughter of a bastard lord and her mother the maid This was a definite re read for the days ahead It is difficult to process out outside reality at this moment during a pandemic we are shut down in CT and since Trump was elected have read these books at least one a day for escape Some are not engaging and some are this one was

    Yikes I started this two and a half years ago and only got through a third of it at firstI 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 AmandaAnd 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 masueraded as her half sister but she couldn’t seem to meet Stephen halfwayBut all’s well that ends well The beginning of the end was when Stephen rescued her from a harrowing experience that could have been brutal 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 afterMaybe I’ll read of Ms Lee’s books But not right now On to some others I’d temporarily uit I should finish my “Currently Reading” pile before moving on to “fresh” books 😆

    Saved from a life without romanceI never thought to find another Regency romance novelist with the gifts Georgette Heyer possessed I’ve read ALL Heyer’s books first as a twenty something and again in my forties Now well into my retirement years I’ve found Jade Lee What a gift So happy now

  9. Linda Linda says:

    It’s Okay “Rules for a lady?” If the heroine was determined to pass herself as her “aristocrat half sister” for a better life for both herself and her ailing mother I would think she would adapt and follow the rules instead her total disregard is the telling of the story A 3 star rating the heroine’s “misbehaving” is funny
