    1. I enjoyed this book, but it isn't one of the better historicals I have read lately. The hero and heroine didn't communicate very well, and this hampered my enjoyment of the story. The hero was very proud and wouldn't take badly needed financial help from the heroine, his wife. The heroine was so shy that she wouldn't voice her thoughts and needs to the hero. These things added duress to their already strained "shotgun" marriage. This book was quick to read but I didn't think it lived up to its p [...]


    2. Nicholas Parrish wakes one morning to an entire herd of Vikings in his foyer, demanding justice for their female property. After a gross misunderstanding, he realizes that the property in question is Prudence Armitage, the mousy, lumpy editor of his sister's magazine. One shotgun marriage later and it's time for the rest of the book! 1. THIS BOOK IS SO FRUSTRATING. 2. FRUSTRATION ONE: Prudence is described as frumpy and plain. Here is a literal rundown of her features: thick, curly golden-red ha [...]


    3. A decent story that sounded like it had a lot more promise than it ended up actually having. I was entertained and I couldn't put it down, but in retrospect I realize several things.First of all, the characters were rather frustrating. Both the heroine and the hero were completely blind to one another's feelings. Half the time the hero would start speaking and the misunderstanding would begin and I felt like screaming at the heroine, "Speak up damn you! Say what you think!" But no, she'd stay qu [...]


    4. Finalmente pude leer este libro! (en ebook obviamente, porque con esa portada no me gasto 17€ ni loca xDD). El anterior ya me pareció muy ameno, y este me ha gustado bastante más, tal vez porque la prota femenina es tan súmamente tímida que crea situaciones muy graciosas aunque no lo pretenda.No tiene una gran trama, ni es de esos inolvidables, pero sin duda engancha, se lee rápido y es simpático. Justo lo que necesitaba ahora mismo xD.



    5. 2.5 stars - almost, but not quite 3 starsInteresting concept - a slight spin on the "man trap" This is not the first book in a series about a periodical called "The Ladies' Fashionable Cabinet". The magazine's offices are out of the home of Nicholas Parrish and his sister Edwina. But Edwina has recently married and is away on her wedding trip. In her place, a loyal employee Prudence is managing editor. Except that diligent Prudence stays late one evening, working on the magazine, and falls aslee [...]


    6. Historical English romance with a plain-Jane shy introverted spinster who is forced into a marriage with her long time unrequited love.There is a problem from the start with this new couple's relationship, the total lack of communication! So I can't even say there was lots of miscommunication because Mr. Nicholas Parrish talks more to his father and bestie Simon then to his actual wife, Prudence Armitage. Prudence is just as guilty because she is chatting with Flora and her small group of friend [...]


    7. Didn't read the 2 books before this series, both sound like a promising stories but after finishing "once a gentleman" not feel that much confidence into reading them. Don't misunderstand me please I did like the story it just that I found Prudence so mousie and Nicholas too arrogant."Pru had been a part of the aristocratic world he disdained. He had never guessed, but wondered if he might have done, if he had not ignored her as thoroughly as did her own family""She was tired of making excuses, [...]


    8. Nicholas and Prudence marriage didn't start out like most. She had been pulling late hours at work from a office in his home. Had a habit of workimg late hours, but this time fell asleep. When Nicholas come home from a long night now, went on to bed. No idea Prudence still downstairs.Woke up with someone pounding on his door, and thought he the only one home. He answers door only partway dressed and man demanding he do right by his daughter that he has compromised?? He has no idea what he is tal [...]


    9. Candice Hern is a hit and miss author for me. I liked her “Change of Heart” and “Miss Lacey’s Last Fling” but was not impressed with “Lady Be Bad” and “An Affair of Honor”. The story had a basic plot of marriage of convenience with a plain heroine secretly in love with the hero. Everybody knows how the story is going to end and it’s up to the storyteller to make it an interesting one with memorable characters. Unfortunately it did not happen here. The story lacked quality dia [...]


    10. I'm a sucker for the geeky/dorky girl and the gorgeous hunk. In this case the heroine is a spinster who edits a magazine (which actually contains political propaganda against the ranking system). Caught out by her father and brothers after falling asleep at work one night, she is forced to marry one of her co-workers when he discovers that she is the granddaughter of a duke.It's got all the predictable ugly duckling to beautiful swan who manages to get the main story lines but it's a good easy r [...]


    11. Well, I have just finished the first of the 'Ladies Fashionable Cabinet' Seriesho hum! I am hoping the other two are more interesting. I didn't find much to endear me to the H/H. I didn't dislike them; I just couldn't get interested in their story. I'll keep you posted.



    12. Non eccelle, ma la trama è simpatica, i personaggi ben costruiti e lo stile di Candice molto buono. In wishlist.


    13. She really twisted herself into knots preventing the two of them from having sex even though they were married in the first chapter.





    14. Depues de leer el primer libro de la trilogia esperaba mas de este libro un poco soso, el personaje masculino te deja a medias y esperas mas de el libro sin mas pretensiones
