This One Is A Keeper...Not Quite A Gentleman

I selected Jackie D'Alessandro's book 'Not Quite a Gentleman' to buy and read as the reviews seemed good for her. It's hard to find new authors that are really good. What a surprise that I read this book and was sad to see the end of this story appear. As the other reviewers noted, Nathan and Victoria's story was a wonderful one. It is nice to see a couple meet - feel the instant attraction and interest in one another but, then history has a way of making people part and take other roads. Fortunately, these two were destinted to meet up again and see if the magic of the first meeting still existed and did it ever. If you enjoy strong leading men and equally strong leading women you will love this book. I enjoyed that the leading man was not your usual duke, price or the like - instead he was a second son without a title or inheritence and instead chose to become a simple country doctor. Nathan's kindness, charm, wit and physical appeal all outweigh what society says is best for a man. In turn, Victoria embodies all that high levels females have at this time in history - beauty, grace, charm and a good blood line. She thinks she needs the same in a man to be happy but, fortunately destiny had a way of giving her Nathan which is really what she needed. A truer case of what you really want, isn't right for you and what you think you don't want - you need the most. You'll enjoy hearing about all of Nathan's animal friends, hearing about his family, her family and the backdrop of spies, lost royal jewels and who can be trusted and who can't. The relationship between Nathan and Victoria develop in such a soft, gentle, beautiful and REAL way that you'll have trouble putting this one down. The intimate scences are extremely well written and very erotic and sensuous while still being very tasteful. I would give the scences a 9 out of 10 - just enough without going over-board. It fitted to the story line perfectly. I can't wait to purchase a few more books from this author as she won me over with this story. She is a talented writer and I can't wait to meet more of her enjoyable characters and story lines. Enjoy!

I have been reading this author's work, and have been enjoying it. This book, however, just annoys the crap out of me. I know its fiction, not real life. I know its historical, showing how women start standing up for themselves, instead of being used, but come on! The female character in this novel just uses the "Ladies' Guide" to behave like a spoiled brat. She throws temper tantram after temper tantram, all while interfering in an investigation into a treasonous murderer. Poor little princess didn't like it when she realized she was an empty-headed bimbo and had been treated like one. And we, the reader, are supposed to believe that the hero respects her for her ill-timed, and poorly executed attempt at gaining "independence". Not likely. You gain respect by earning it, perhaps by acting like a grown up and putting potential murder victims needs above your own wants. You do not gain it by blackmail. Unrealistic and completely unrelatable characters and storyline.
