Kurzbeschreibung

Leaving behind the rural charms of Finnshire, Miss Penelope Fairweather arrives in London with hope in her heart and a dream in her eye. The dowager, no less, has invited her for a season in London, where she will attempt to catch a husband.

Thus begins our heroine's tale as she attempts to tackle the London season with all her rustic finesse. Unfortunately, her rustic finesse turns out to be as delicate as a fat bear trying to rip apart a honeycomb infested with buzzing bees.

What follows is a series of misadventures, love affairs, moonlit balls, fancy clothes, fake moustaches, highwaymen, sneering beauties, pickpockets, and the wrath of a devilishly handsome duke.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Leicht und wirklich witzig geschrieben!! 3. März 2013
Von maMadame
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Ich bin durch Zufall über dieses Buch gestolpert und habe wirklich nicht viel erwartet, aber vorallem nicht, dass sie so witzig ist. Ich habe die ganze Zeit viel geschmunzelt, gelacht und mich völlig in der Geschichte verloren, so dass ich mich -ob der frühen Morgenstunde- endlich mal ins Bett begeben mußte. Damit ich morgen (Sonntag) wieder ausgeruht mir die letzten Seiten ungestört und wach zum Vergnügen machen kann.
Ja, die Geschichte ist seicht, ausführlich (um nich zu sagen mit kleinen Längen)und auch etwas "albern" fuer eine Regency Geschichte, aber sie ist sehr unterhaltsam und das ist wirklich viel mehr wert.
Schreibstil ähnelt Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, Suzanne Enoch oder auch Cathy Maxwell, natürlich kommt Any Wylde nicht an diese heran, noch nicht, aber mit der Zeit sehe ich da keine Schwierigkeiten für eine Enwicklung auf gleicher Ebene in dem Breich der Historischen-Regency LiRos.
Lohnt sich wirklich, wenn man die Art von Genre mag! Leicht, seicht und gut Laune garantiert für nur 0,89€ kann man nicht mekern, wirlich nicht!
Das Englisch ist ebenfalls für Anfänger des Originallesens sehr gut geeignet.

4.0 von 5 Sternen sehr lustig 11. Mai 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Dieses Buch ist sehr lustig. Ich habe öfters laut gelacht. Die Handlung ist manchmal verwirrend. Deshalb bekommt das Buch nur 4 Sterne. Normalerweise mag ich es gar nicht wenn die Handlung verwirrend ist,aber dieses Buch ist so witzig und unterhaltsam, dass ich es gerne vergebe.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Delicious and heart-warming Regency romp 16. Februar 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
After having read the excerpt of 'Penelope' in Ms. Wylde's wonderful 'A Wicked Wager', I was eager for 'Penelope''s release. And when it was released I was not disappointed. This is a highly-entertaining Regency romp with a cast of entertaining and endearing characters. Penelope herself is a charming country pumpkin with the heart in the right place, who is awed but not overawed by her surroundings. She knows what's at stake and acts accordingly, but without any deviousness to her heart. The whole Blackthorne family are just likeable, even though at times I would have loved to kick the Duke in his butt for being such an obstinate fool, but that was also part of the fun of reading this book. I just loved the way the Duke's plans to get rid of Penelope backfired – the front garden scence with Sir Henry was just delicious!

The side characters were well-drawn and amusing as well. From the butler with the selective eyesight to Penelope's maiden to the Falcon, and not to forget Madame Bellafraunde. And last but not least, Lady Bathsheba who surely agrees with Sir Henry that you can't have enough undergarments.

All in all, a read to lift your spirits and make you smile and also laugh out loud. Highly recommendable.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A wonderfully funny Regency "romp", I loved it. 26. Januar 2013
Von mioquilt - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This is the second book by Anya Wylde and is even funnier than her first one.
I love the Regency period, however many of the books in that era always have a very similar plot.
This is very different, the heroine Penelope will never be forgotten, she is priceless.
Her best friend Lady Bathsheba (who eats men's "underthings") also compliments the story.

My favourite character, apart from Penelope herself, is Madame Bellafraunde the modiste. I have never encounered anyone like her in any other regency book that I have read.
She made me laugh out loud, I enjoy books that make me laugh and they are not normally books of this era.
The highwayman is also very colourful, I wasn't sure that he really existed until he put in an appearance.

The story flows easily and I really couldn't put the book down once Penelope appeared on the scene.
The plot has a lot of twists and turns and is never dull.
Well done to this author, I am looking forward to more books by her.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Love it! Love it! Love it! 1. Februar 2013
Von Islandreader Tina - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Ebook provided to me by the author for my honest review.

Hero: 9/10
Heroine: 10/10
Sizzle: 2/10
Romance: 9/10
Humor: 9/10
Secondary Characters: 10/10
End: 9/10
Pace: 9/10

Squee!! I loved this book so freaking much! I giggled and sighed, swooned and laughed, got teary-eyed a few times and grinned so much that my cheeks hurt. The characters are completely endearing, I loved each and every single one of them. I have no complaints. This is such a well written, captivating, feel-good story. I could not put the book down and when I had to, I continued thinking about it. I tried to prolong the end because I simply didn't want it to end.

I happily admit Penelope into my very exclusive list of favorite books. Where she has, by the way, elbowed her way to the top of said list and plunked herself down among the top 3 All-Time Favorite Books Ever. I recommend this book to everyone who loves a light-hearted romance with a great HEA! It's fun and silly, sweet and heart-warming and such a joy to read! Go... buy it! I dare you to get swept up in the magic that is Penelope.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Utterly Charming Regency Romance!!! 31. Januar 2013
Von maria2222 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
"I absolutely loved this utterly charming little romance! It had all the things I love in an historical romance, but slightly exaggerated in such a comedic way that I couldn't help smiling all the way through the book!

Raised in a small village along with her step-siblings by her father and step-mother, Miss Penelope Fairweather is having her first season in London sponsored by the dowager Duchess of Blackthorne, who was a dear friend of her deceased mother. Anxiously awaiting her arrival one rainy evening, the dowager and her daughter, Lady Anne Radclyff, are shocked when the butler ushers in a dripping wet Penelope with a goat in tow! It seems she didn't want her maid to be embarrassed in front of the other servants by showing up with a goat, and this is only the first of Penelope's many madcap misadventures throughout the book! Lady Anne is thrilled, of course, to have someone to relieve her boredom and she and the dowager set their minds to turning Penelope into the perfect lady so that she can snare a husband. The handsome Charles, Duke of Blackthorne, however, is appalled by and appallingly rude to Penelope - voicing his displeasure at having her in his home at every opportunity.

The dowager and Lady Anne persist undeterred, however, in their quest to make Penelope a social success, and to this end enlist the aid of the famous Madame Bellafraunde, a woman with her own secrets, who commences to not only assist with Penelope's wardrobe but with all of her sadly lacking social skills. Poor Penelope has no choice but to acquiesce, as the alternative to finding a husband in London is returning to her little village and the step-mother who can't stand the sight of her and is trying to marry her off to the most loathsome man she can find! In spite of her social ineptitude, the dowager and Lady Anne grow fonder of Penelope daily, and even the staff at the huge mansion are enchanted by her. Everyone, it seems, loves Penelope except for the Duke!

Some of the characters in the book were just hilarious. Penelope's constant social gaffes are eye-rolling, but in a good way. Then there's the elderly Sir Henry, the dowager's father who also lives in the mansion, who insists that a real man must have a good mustache and to that end, a supply of fake mustaches is kept at the ready for guests. All I can say about Madame Bellafraunde is that she needs her own book! This is a clean romance, too, which is nice, but with plenty of sparks between the protagonists! This is going to go on my "favorites" shelf for when I need a smile and a "happily ever after!"

I received this book from the author in return for an honest review. What an absolute pleasure!

1.0 von 5 Sternen I can't believe all of the 5* reviews! 9. Februar 2013
Von Kat M. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I honestly had such high hopes for this book which is probably why i am so disappointed. I love this time period, the story seemed funny yet romantic and different, and almost all of the reviews were positive. I don't know what those readers were thinking! Now, I'm not too much of a time period snob when it comes to the actual writing style ( a little modern phrasing is fine with me) , but I honestly couldn't tell if his was regency England or modern day. Some of the wording and actions were down right unbelievable. Penelope has been sheltered in a small village and basically ignored her whole life (enter wicked step mother), and finds comfort and friendship in a pet goat. she heads off to London at the invitation of her dead mothers best friend, in order to have a season and find a gentleman to marry. She speaks her mind and is a bit quirky ( and accident prone) and a very honest, friendly person. I really thought all of her quirkiness would have been endearing ( and believe that is what he author intended), but on far too many occasions she seemed dim witted and stupid. What made me most upset was that throughout the entire book there would be scenes so heart warming and funny, and you really rooted for Penelope, and then something so ridiculous would happen to ruin it all. It made me so angry. The hero calls her terrible names throughout the ENTIRE book...doxy, dim witted, imbecile, ugly, harridan, "no one will ever want you" etc, even apologizing only to utter the same nasty thing in the next breath. I believe what the author was trying to convey was an endearing, lovable quirky girl from a small country village who falls in love with a domineering duke who has been betrayed in love many times through his life and is not easily trusting. He just wants to protect his family and himself from someone who may seem opportunistic and fights against his feelings for her, only to realize she isn't what he originally thought and his heart knows her own. Well the author totally missed the mark on this one and it will frustrate you to no end push through this book. I would be curious to know the age bracket of those who gave this book 5 stars. I can honestly say that I never even though to, and have never "returned" a book that was $.99, but that was the first thing I did when I finished this book. One, on sheer principle, and two because I knew one day down the road I'd forget about this book, read the description for it and it would tempt me again- And I'd end up throwing my kindle out the window in disappointment!

1.0 von 5 Sternen It's a complete mess. 14. Februar 2013
Von Mrs. J. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
1. The writing itself is perfectly serviceable. The plotting, characters, tone, and editing are problematic.

2. The bit with "Are you thinking about your grandmother?" was very clever.

3. The heroine, Penelope, arrives at the Duke's London residence with a PET GOAT. She may be a bumpkin with no filter, but this is patently ridiculous.

4. The hero, Charles , is an awful person and does not become any more tactful, likeable, or sympathetic as the story progresses, despite a cursory ridiculous backstory. He finds Penelope gauche, embarrassing, and appalling. He tells her so regularly with spectacular insensitivity, if he even acknowledges she is in the room while he talks about her.

5. If the hero and heroine are opposites and set against each other, they must also have an intense sexual attraction underlying their interactions as they find common ground. These two have NO chemistry. The reader never knows what Charles is thinking. He should find Penelope's lack of pretension refreshing and charming, even if he doesn't want to. Penelope is flighty and blithers endlessly. He could help her feel comfortable and relax. She could help him remove the stick from his bottom.

6. Penelope and the duke's sister act like 15 year olds. Why on earth would anyone be attracted to them, unless he/she too was a silly teenager? It makes the romantic relationship, such as it is, jarring and incomprehensible. Penelope may be sweet and well-intentioned, but she's childlike, and the Duke is sophisticated and mature.

7. Crazy and inconsistent does not equal "madcap".

8. I'm 99.96437% sure that no one in The Regency used the word "diddlysquat".

9. I cannot fathom the good reviews.
