Overview

Impetuous Innocent by Stephanie Laurens

After the death of her dear father, Georgiana Hartley returns home to England—only to be confronted by the boorish advances of her wretched cousin. Knowing no one, she flees to Dominic Ridgely's estate, hoping the nobleman will bestow a neighborly kindness upon her.

The haughty viscount hears Georgiana's plea to find her a position as a lady's companion with thinly veiled disgust. A lovely innocent such as Miss Hartley subjected to that base existence? The very idea was preposterous. Instead, he takes matters into his own hands and introduces her to his sister's influence.

Suddenly, Georgiana is transformed into a lady who charms the ton with ease and draws a bevy of suitors at every turn. Everything is unfolding according to Dominic's plan…until he realizes that he desires Georgiana for his own.

This book had a great premise, but I wanted to slap the heroine by the middle of the book. I know that she is supposed to be young and innocent, but REALLY! I also never had a good reason to believe that the Hero was actually in LOVE with the heroine. There was also a lot of build up about the "bad guy and girl" in the book, and my mind took it in great directions, unfortunately, the author did not do that. I was disappointed with the story, but it's not a terrible read, it just seems like it was not as fleshed out as it could have been.

I really loved this book, though if you are looking for sex in a romance novel you will not find it here. I will read it again and again:)

This is not my favorite Stephanie Laurens book but it is still a good light read. I have grown so attached to the Cynster characters that I may be less enthralled with most others.

I was captivated with the story once I got through the first couple of chapters. The character plots had some nice surprising twists although there were some pretty predictable ones as well, and everytime you thought the destined lovers would come together another wrench would get in the way. I got a little annoyed with the main characters self doubt since she was grew so confident in other ways with each chapter. But in the end it left me wanting more... Similar to "Pride & Prejudice" by Jane Austen if you need a comparison but naturally not as timeless.

This book was just okay. The characters were a little under-developed for my taste and I didn't like the fact that the leading lady was 14 years younger than the hero. Normally I wouldn't mind at all but she was so insecure it was pitiful. The book had so much potential but just missed the mark. Where was the umph? Stephanie was my #1 but she has fallen off so much she's no longer on my list! Bottom Line: not her best...not her worst....not good...not a keeper

This was tough to get through. Dominic did so much confident smirking and smiling that Laurens implied him to have either a perpetual beatific, yet stupefied mien or some kind of bizarre anti-gravitational palsy curving his lips in an unnerving grin. Furthermore, he had no justification to be so self-satisfied, being that he had no comprehension of Georgiana's feelings and struck out thrice at gaining an affirmative response to his proposals to her. Trite impediments to the couple's being together and cliche stock phrases repeated to describe the characters made for a boring read.
