I've never laughed so much
on June 10, 2010
Funny, hilarious, delightful, brilliant, clever, whimsical, and just plain awesome. What can I say, this book had me laughing the whole way though. I want more! Just thinking back at the book and the comical characters has me bursting out laughing.
Sebastian is the dashing rake with a sleeping problem and a teeny tiny secret, Annabel is the fish out of water heroine with a lack-of-money problem. Annabel needs to marry a man with money and her grandparents have decided to "help". Enter the Earl of Newbury, three times her age, but filthy rich. Sebastian Grey is Newbury's nephew and a not a beloved one. If Newbury dies before siring a son, Mr. Grey inherits everything. Lord Newbury will NOT let that happen! That set up, combined with the most delicious humor makes this book one of the best books I've read in a while. I really do hope we can revisit those characters again. I loved all of them from Olivia and Harry Valentine, Edward Valentine (Sebastian's cousins), Louisa (Annabel's cousin), Annabel's Grandmother Lady Vickers, even Frederick the dog. This book is such a mood lifter. I highly recommend it.
