I just loved this book! It was so funny. I found myself laughing out loud throughout the entire book! I loved how light-hearted things were throughout most of the book. It was rather refreshing reading a romance that was more on the side of pure fun than stiff seriousness. Although for those who have not read this novel the characters do find themselves in a serious situation at the end.
You've just got to read it! I'm having trouble now deciding weither BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN is now my favorite Julia Quinn novel or if it's still THE DUKE AND I.
~*sigh*~ Desisions... desisions...
Thanks again Julia! As always your books are wonderful!

This book was pretty good, and if I were reading Ms. Quinn for the first time, I might have given it five stars. But I've read the Bridgerton series, etc., and Brighter Than The Sun didn't quite measure up. It certainly started out well, but if you're going to have a heroine who is so independent and out-of-step with the mores of the regency that she would cut off someone's boot, let them lean on her as they walk, and go to a bachelor's residence alone, then you really shouldn't change her into someone who is constantly bickering because she's uncomfortable with the marriage of convenience she's made. Yes, parts were amusing, and I found Charles (especially his lists) to be endearing, but I got tired of Ellie's little snits and spats. When are authors going to learn that that behavior is for junior high students? Anyway, in reading this review, it sounds pretty negative, but in spite of that, I think you'd enjoy this book or I would not have given it four stars. It's funny, it's good, the love between the two characters is certainly believable, and the hero is pretty delicious. My negativity really only stems from the fact that the author is Quinn, and I expect more from her.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Victoria Lyndon, our heroine from Everything and the Moon, has a younger sister Eleanor, who is equally independent and feisty. Ellie is walking in the countryside near her home one day when a very handsome and very drunk man literally falls into her lap from a tree.
Charles Wycombe, the rakish Earl of Billington, must marry before his upcoming thirtieth birthday or lose his inheritance. When he meets the vivacious and outspoken Ellie, he realizes that this very attractive miss is the answer to his prayers. No, he has no intention to actually love her nor any other woman. But she would make a suitable enough bride and mother to the heir he must produce while he goes on living his dissolute life just as before.
Ellie is very attracted to the Earl but would never agree to such an outrageous and hasty proposal except that her soon to be stepmother promises to make her life a misery. Also, by marrying she will gain access to the 300 pounds she's made through prudent investments in her father's name, and Ellie is a wonderful businesswoman.
So Charles and Ellie marry-and the fun continues as, amidst a host of mysterious accidents, they come to care for each other. Secondary characters are pretty good, except the impertinent and demanding little Judith, who fails to come off with the charm she's clearly supposed to have.
There are a lot of problems with Brighter Than the Sun. For the first two hundred plus pages, Ellie is nearly always angry. This gets very tiring and seems childish, making her somewhat unlikable. In addition, Charles and Ellie constantly getting injured or sick really starts to wear on the reader. Some plot variation is desperately needed, especially some real action to balance all the domesticity.

In about two weeks time, Charles Wycombe, Earl of Billington, must find a bride and be married to her. Not an easy job when one is NOT in London. Even if he were, he can't stand the young simpering, just out of the schoolroom chits!
Miss Eleanor Lyndon needs to find a new home as fast as possible. Her father, the town vicar, has deceided to remarry. However the woman he has picked, Mrs. Foxglove a widow, can not stand Ellie. Actually they both feel the same about each other. INTRUDER!!!
One day Charles literally falls at Ellie's feel, he sees the perfect answer to both of their pressing problems. They should just get married. After all, Ellie is the first marriagble girl he has come across and can actually stand being in the same room with her alone for more than ten minutes. Not to mention that she really isn't asking for that much when they marry. That is until she informs Charles that they won't consumate the marriage until she's ready to do so. But surly that won't take very long will it? No woman has ever been able to resist his charms. However, he's never wanted any woman like he wants her. And the worst part is, is that he can't figure out why or how he can want someone the way he wants her.
Mrs. Quinn has done a great job with this book! It is loaded with excitment from cover to cover. Whether it's abduction you like or suprise kitchen fires, you'll find it all in this book! I'm not quite sure I have ever read a book with more excitment in it than this one has! And what was really great was that the events were spread out throughout the entire book. Which then in turn made the book a total page turner! Also what was nice, was that even though this book was in connection to EVERYTHING AND THE MOON, you don't have to read that book to understand this one.
