a complicated plot and great characters My first time to read a book by Annie Burrows but it will not be the last Plot 3 5Characterisation 4 5Prose 3 5How much I enjoyed it 3 5 Miniseries Regency Bachelors Miniseries Regency Bachelors 3 Once upon a time, Georgiana Wickford and Edmund, Earl of Ashenden were best friends Then he was sent Italy to recover from a childhood illness, and, despite promises to keep in touch, the two failed to For the first time in years though, Georgie has reached out to Edmund and wants his help He s still angry at her for her apparent abandonment of him, but

Ashenden were best friends Then he was sent Italy to recover from a childhood illness, and, despite promises to keep in touch, the two failed to For the first time in years though, Georgie has reached out to Edmund and wants his help He s still angry at her for her apparent abandonment of him, but he feels obliged to see what she needs Georgie doesn t want to get married Years ago, she caught a stablehand and a maid fucking in the stable, and witnessing that and the maid s subsequent dismissal have made her fear sex, but due to her father s death, she has no where to go Rather than face the marriage mart, she wants to marry Edmund She ll then stay at home while he can continue his life elsewhere Edmund is horrified at the suggestion The last thing he wants is a sexless marriage, and he isn t interested in a woman who will let his mother walk all over her He s also angry that the first time Georgie reaches out to him in years, it s to ask such a huge favor of him He refuses, but after thinking it over, he decides to help Georgie find a suitable husband He figures he can find someone palatable to her, whether it s someone she genuinely cares about, or a gay man who s interested in the same kind of marriage of convenience that she is However, as he reconnects with Georgie, Edmund s feelings begin to rekindle for her, and Georgie begins to think that a loveless, and sexless, marriage isn t what she wants at all.There is a lot of hurt and misunderstanding between Georgie and Edmund They were once best friends, and really each other s only friends Edmund was sickly and kept isolated from most of the other children, and had a weird interest in bugs Georgie was your quintessential tomboy, and an outcast from the rest of the village children That all changes when Edmund is sent away Both send letters to the other, but they never receive a reply, so eventually they stop sending letters and assume the other no longer cares about them It s obvious to the reader what has happened, but it takes longer for them to realize what has happened I liked the pain between them, and their reluctance to get close again despite all their fond memories and how it easy it feels to be friends again There was a nice evolution of feelings I also liked both Georgie and Edmund Georgie was a tomboy, but after Edmund leaves, her father starts to worry about her learning how to be a woman, so he remarries to give her a mother Her step mother is an awful woman Burrows did a good job showing the different facets of abuse Georgie s step mother physically abused Georgie in order to make her lessons stick, and her step sister also furthered the abuse, but in a muchsubtle way than her mother This definitely messed up Georgie, and years of living under her with no one else to rely on has transformed her from the girl Edmund knew She still wants to be that girl, but no longer can be Edmund is a bit dickish, but it makes considering he thought Georgie had abandoned him, and I thought that his anger over Georgie s proposal made sense as well as his fear of getting involved with her.Georgie s fear of sex did seem a bit extreme to me I understood why she had such a negative view of it, but to swear it off entirely seemed a bit much I also would have liked to have seenpunishment for the villains I thought they got off pretty lightly for what they did and wanted a bit.Overall, a good book, and I really liked seeing Georgia and Edmund rekindle their love Good second chance friends to lovers story Georgie and Edmund had been good friends as children Both of them had been labeled as different and as a result were also each other s only friend Georgie was a tomboy,interested in fishing, fencing, and outdoor pursuits than in the girly ones of fashion, needlework, and gossip Edmund was fascinated by bugs and all things scientific As the heir to an earl, Edmund s mother didn t want him associating with common children, so he was very Good second chance friends to lovers story Georgie and Edmund had been good friends as children Both of them had been labeled as different and as a result were also each other s only friend Georgie was a tomboy,interested in fishing, fencing, and outdoor pursuits than in the girly ones of fashion, needlework, and gossip Edmund was fascinated by bugs and all things scientific As the heir to an earl, Edmund s mother didn t want him associating with common children, so he was very isolated When Edmund became ill, Georgie found ways to sneak in and see him, until it all came to a crashing end Edmund was sent away to recover from his illness, and both he and Georgie promised to write But as months went by with no letters, each believed that the other had abandoned their friendship.Georgie has grown up and changed from the hoyden that she used to be After Edmund s departure, her father remarried and her stepmother went to great pains to turn Georgie into a lady Her methods were extreme and Georgie has buried the girl she used to be under a fa ade of propriety Now that her father has died, she and her stepmother and stepsister have lost their home Her stepmother is determined to marry the two girls off to titled husbands Georgie has a fear of marriage due to something she witnessed and is desperate to avoid the marriage mart She remembers that Edmund had promised to help her if she ever needed it, and comes up with a desperate plan.Edmund is shocked when his first communication from Georgie in years results in an incredible proposal She wants him to marry her and in return she will leave him to pursue his own interests with no interference from her All she asks is that he doesn t consummate the marriage Still angry over what he sees as her abandonment, he shoots her down most emphatically But it isn t long before he feels guilty and decides to go to London and find a way to help her that doesn t involve him marrying her.I enjoyed the development of Edmund and Georgie s relationship It is still antagonistic at the beginning as each confronts the other about their past actions But there are indications that their previous friendship isn t as dead as they thought it was I liked the way that their former openness began to resurface as they spenttime together It was great fun to see Edmund go from wanting to play matchmaker to realizing that he didn t want her to marry some other man He is completely oblivious to the reason he is so reluctant to hand her over as he comes up with reason after reason that this man or that one is unsuitable He also becomes very protective of her, which lands him in an awkward situation but also opens his eyes.Meanwhile, Georgie is stuck doing what she doesn t want entertaining gentlemen callers who aren t truly interested in her I ached for her as she dealt with the constant criticisms from her stepmother while trying to find an acceptable solution to her predicament I liked seeing her real personality begin to reemerge whenever she was with Edmund I enjoyed seeing her call him out on some of his attitudes toward her, especially on those things she had no control over It wasn t long before she was comparing each of her suitors to Edmund until she finally realized that it was Edmund she had wanted all along.Both Edmund and Georgie also had to find a way to overcome their own insecurities Though he puts on a good front, Edmund is affected by the way others see him He frequently takes things Georgie says the wrong way as they play upon those insecurities It was quite satisfying whenever Georgie would upend those feelings by being supportive of the real him Georgie s insecurities have been thrust on her by her stepmother s attitudes and actions Georgie is a tall girl with a curvy figure, nothing like the current fashion, and she can t see how any man would want her for who she is I loved seeing her surprise whenever Edmund would compliment her Her fears of the physical side of marriage also faded when she pictured Edmund in that role.I enjoyed the ending as Edmund took drastic steps to gain the result that he wanted It was fun to see the encouragement he received from his friends, who saw things muchclearly than he did I loved that he was so willing to be whatever Georgie needed from him The conclusion was sweet, romantic, and intense as both Edmund and Georgie were finally able to put all their fears to rest.The secondary characters were also well done Georgie s stepmother was vividly portrayed in her horrible attitude toward Georgie There were many times I really wanted someone to let her have it I was not terribly surprised by the revelation of how she came to marry Georgie s father Edmund s mother, though she had few actual appearances in the book, had a much bigger role in their lives than either knew Again, I wasn t surprised by what she did I liked seeing Edmund finally stand up to her I ve had a bit of a rough week and was in the mood for some pure escapism, so when this popped up on my Kindle I was delighted The Debutante s Daring Proposal is a historical romance set in Regency England The story is about two childhood friends, Edmund and Georgiana, who are now grown up Edmund is the Earl of Ashenden and Georgiana is about to be launched on Society They grew apart after Edmund was sent away for his health to the Scilly Isles, but now he s returned and Georgiana

after Edmund was sent away for his health to the Scilly Isles, but now he s returned and Georgiana wants to ask a favour If he would agree to marry her, she could stay in the village she loves and wouldn t have to marry a stranger.Edmund s first inclination is to say no He feels he no longer has anything in common with this brittle society miss, but then he has a change of heart Perhaps he could act as match maker and find Georgiana a husband Right What possible flaw could there be in that plan As with all Annie Burrows s books, I loved the humour, much of which is derived from the witty dialogue and misunderstandings between the two main characters I particularly loved Georgiana who, despite the best efforts of her step mother, is still a tomboy at heart when we first meet her she is up to her ankles in mud Edmund s friends, who give him lots of helpful advice are also entertaining.The Debutante s Daring Proposal is a sweet, romantic story, with no sex scenes until the very end, and I m sure anyone who loves historical romance will adore it Note The story is 3 in a series called Regency Bachelors 1 was Lord Havelock s List and 2 was a novella called Governess to Christmas Bride, but you don t have to have read them to enjoy this story I enjoyed this offering from Annie Burrows, having read the first two in the series.I felt for both Georgie and Edmund as they found their way back to each other, despite hurt, lies, misunderstandings and meddling.I was delighted that Edmund put his domineering, offensive mother in her place quite firmly Not only that but he managed to put Georgie s vacuous and annoying step mother in her place too.True it was both sad and annoying that Georgie had such a negative view of intercourse but this w I enjoyed this offering

Lotty I have looked to see if Ms Burrows has given us a series with these two plus Julia and Georgie s stepsister plus Mr Morgan PLEASE Technically belongs on the angst shelf, with the misunderstandings and unrequited feelings, but view spoiler I just didn t feel the angst Like, the events in the book are angsty, but the characters don t seem to really feel the angst either At the end when they finally admit their feelings to each other, it felt like there wasn t any fanfare The set up is exactly my jam, but the resolution didn t live up to its full potential IMO I think their first kiss happens just kind of incidentally Technically belongs on the angst shelf, with the misunderstandings and unrequited feelings, but view spoiler I just didn t feel the angst Like, the events
