The way in which JQ blended the characters into the stories was very well done. However, I didn't like Lady Whistledown. I found her columns mundane, but she did at least keep good dates. SUZANNE ENOCH: Lady Anne was not much more than an innocently spoiled, aimless girl. She seemed to have a warm and depthful relationship with her father, but it never really developed into anything. Anne's 'farmer' was fine; handsome, smart and dedicated. At the skating party, servants in socks emerged on the frozen Thames pushing carts of food & wine. PUH-leez! Just how pretentious were these Morelands, anyway? KAREN HAWKINS: She was the best writer, very witty, very talented. Liza was selfless, funny, and lovely, with a wonderful outlook on life. Sir Royce Pemberly was a perfect, perfect man. He was also the sexiest; read that romantic litte scene on page 149! (He reminded me of another dark-haired hero; Jason Bradford, in 'The Rose of Enchantment', so averse to marriage, and didn't know a good thing when he had it. In fact, he was a bit more sexy, smart and all-around a wonderful man. MIA RYAN: Caroline or Linney. I much preferred Caroline. Anyway, she deserved happiness. The synopsis told us that Lord Darington had evicted her, yet when he found out from his friend how it came about, he never once discussed it with Caroline or her mother. Wouldn't these women have wanted an explanation to an event that had drastically altered their lives? It shouldn't have been important to me as a reader, but darn it, I wanted to know! Anyway, Lord Darington was the second best hero of these stories. Wow, he was handsome. JULIA QUINN: Susannah was a doll, and at first David, Lord Renminster came across as a classy, strong, intriguing man who could take on the world if need be - until the skating party. He argued with his brother, Clive, but came off rather wimpy to me. And the dialogue between them was ridiculous. So cliche. They almost come to blows, but then they started to joke around. Huh? During another argument, they do the exact same thing. Both arguments were far too vicious to suddenly turn humerous. It was so out of place. Then she turned David into a 'nerd,' for lack of a better word. Having just made love to Susannah 'he let out a triumphant shout.' What a goofy thing to have a hero say. One more example: When they discussed their mutual feelings, HE began to cry. She didn't. Nothing wrong with a man crying, of course, but he came across as weak, not sentimental. I don't know about JQ's other heros, but if they are like David, she needs to make her heros sensitive, yet cool, not dorky.
