2.0 out of 5 stars romance or bad mystery - pick one Nov. 18 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
When I buy a romance novel, that is what I generally look for. A good romance.
Camp likes to add in blatantly unchallenging "mysteries" into her stories, where the reader has figured out who the "murderer" or "mystery" is long before the characters do. The characters seem to be intellient people, but she makes the antagonists so obvious, it's frustrating to keep reading. The love story itself is very good and enjoyable in this book, but the added "mystery" is distracting and takes away from the pleasure of the story. If Camp feels it necessary to clutter the plot with a weak mystery, she should work harder on making the "mystery" more captivating.
Stick to the romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Georgette Heyer March 13 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Take an idea and book by Georgette Heyer ("A Convenient Marriage" I believe) complete with all the contents of the the Heyer book: the heroine asking the hero to marry her instead of her sister, the hero's sister being blackmailed by the cad, and several misunderstandings. Add in a good murder mystery and you've got a great book!

5.0 out of 5 stars It draws you in, more than just words on a page. June 18 1998
By Tiffany
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Candace Camp is one of those authors who has the magic to suck you into the story. You can actually feel, smell, and TASTE what is going on. This book becomes an obsession to find out what's on the next page. I urge anyone who loves historical romance to pick this up. The heroine is a character you can really grab onto. Charity is so full of life, you find yourself smiling. The hero is of course dark and brooding, but he literally melts with Charity. The story is witting and engaging. A must read!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars WELL YOU CAN'T SATISFY EVERYONE -- Jan. 19 2007
By M. Hartmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I found the story light hearted and naive, just like the young ladies of that era. Yes many time they act silly [in our views] but at least Charity Emerson was not a whiney, fainty kind of girl at 18.

Simon "Devil" Dure has inherited the Earldom on the death of his brother [never quite explained] but is protecting his emotions from being ravaged again by love. He blames himself for the death of his young wife but now must procure an heir.

He is on the verge of offering for Selena Emerson, the eldest of the Emerson girls who happens to love a lowly reverand. Not the marriage to the pastor, her mother, Caroline invisions for her. The Emerson's need someone with money in order to bring out the younger girls, Elspeth, Horatia, and Belinda.

I loved the simplicity of Charity's idea of approaching Simon Dure in his own home [which of course, is not done] - Dure is taken aback that this child/woman had the audacity to come to his establishment. He is entrigued by her arguments that he should marry her and not her sister.

She actually brings laughter and amusement into Dure's life. He is finding it hard to adhur to the year long engagement as she unwittingly sends his desire into overdrive. Shall we say that he gets a bit hot around her?

We meet Venetia, his sister who is being blackmailed by Faraday Reed, who considers himself quite a ladies man. And then there is the foolish Mrs. Theodora Graves, who deludes herself that Dure would marry her.

Oh, we can't forget the mutt of a dog, Lucky and guess what Charity brings home? Churchill, the funny little monkey who stirs up a lot of trouble.

Yup! Dure is finding it hard to resist Charity and her kisses and she does take advantage of the man and his weaknesses. She is not afraid to get down and dirty and play with her sisters or seduce Dure.

I don't care for 400 page stories but this just keeps leading you on - couldn't stop reading and was not in a hurry [as in some books] to get to the end.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED --m You may want to read this one again.

3.0 out of 5 stars 1996 book reissued in 2010 and it shows its age. Jan. 25 2010
By Old Latin teacher - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I like Candace Camp so I picked up this book. When I got into the story I realized I had read this plot so very many times before in romance novels written by so very many authors. There are even bits in this I've read in old Georgette Heyer books (e.g., the heroine's penchant for rescuing strays, whether they be animals or mistreated children). Now a lot of the books with similar plots have been written since 1996 when this SUDDENLY was first issued so I'm not saying Camp is plagiarizing, by any means. It's just that the plot is so "been-there, done-that". The good thing about this book is that Camp has managed to make this heroine appealing, not annoying, and the hero is, of course, sexy but decent, as we like heroes to be. The villainess, hero's cast-aside mistress, is pretty annoying and predictable, as is the evil rake of a villain. On the whole, however, if one considers the publication date of 1996 it is a satisfactory read. Probably a reader younger than I, who hasn't read so many historical romances, will like this.

2.0 out of 5 stars Probably not a bad idea in 1996 Feb. 1 2010

Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Had a been there, done that feel.... The plucky heroine, falsely accused man, etc. Rescued animals, evil blackmailers, nasty ex-mistress. Maybe some books just shouldn't be reissued.
