    This story was actually a bit amazing. Since the title is a roma

    This story was actually a bit amazing. Since the title is a romance you know that the rich British aristocrat will end up with the poor Seven Dials American girl. How they do so is unexpected and rather charming. Georgia may be my favorite heroine. She doesn’t turn out to be a noble woman in disguise; she remains exactly who she is throughout the story and she has more determination than any other heroine. The only thing that keep the story from being perfect was the side plot involving an uncle, which added nothing to the story and I assume is merely a set up for a sequel.

    Uneven effort...but had its moments

    (I wavered between three and four stars on this one, but enjoyed the epilogue so much that I decided on four.) For the most part, this book seemed...uneven. A whole lot of time is spent on the beginning ("Robinson" and Georgia's time in NYC when he has no memory), two entire chapters on Roderick's time before he even got to New York (which, though interesting, seemed out of place where it was and how it was written), and then the rest of it just seemed to fly by without a whole lot of time and detail spent on it, though much of it (especially Georgia's transformation and her time with the Astors) should have made for some interesting reading. Georgia's admittance to society, their reunion, the drama of Roderick's uncle that had brought him to America in the first place, all of this was over and done with before a reader really had time to get used to it all. I would have liked to have seen Roderick show a bit more backbone throughout the story--he seemed to lose it once he remembered who he was, which was disappointing. Georgia, at least, remained strong throughout. My favorite parts by far were the beginning, where Roderick and Georgia meet on the street, and the epilogue, where they get their just desserts with a daughter who wants--of all things--an elephant. Very engaging start and finish. The middle, while it did have me turning pages, was more hit and miss throughout. I am interested to see where Marvelle will go with the next book in the series, though.

    FOREVER AND A DAY by Delilah Marvelle is an interesting Regency

    FOREVER AND A DAY by Delilah Marvelle is an interesting Regency historical romance set in 1830 New York City and moves to England. Book 1 in "The Rumor" series. It is the re-telling of the "Prince and the Pauper". A lost memory and a mix match love,can passion,respect,and love bring love?....a wealthy Lord and the poor lady who saves him and teaches him about love,passion and life. Meet, Roderick Gideon Tremayne, the recently appointed Duke of Wentworth, who finds himself with a "loss of memory" in New York City. And, Georgia Milton, the young widow of New York's notorious Forty Thieves,who saves him and takes him to her poor but humble home. What follows is the unexpected,passion,life's lessons, a difference in social classes,passion,and love. Written with bits of wit,intrigue,hardship,and a few twists and turns. If you enjoy historical,romance, the re-telling of a long ago told story,than you will enjoy "Forever and a Day". This title was a bit slow to me in the beginning, but it picked up nicely,and was an interesting story with a bit of nail biting to see of the young couple can find true love,happiness and content. Received for an honest review from t he publisher and Net Galley. Details can be found at the author's website, HQN and My Book Addiction and More.
