Despite the scandalous blemish on the family name of his year old bride Lord Giles Cardross is convinced beautiful Helen cares for him When newlywed begins to fill her days with fashion and frivolity her husband has to wonder whether she really did marry him for his money as his family so helpfully suggests He thought they were marrying for love but as the bills and extravagant debts begin to mount up Giles begins to suspect that perhaps his adored wife isn't as innocent as he supposed Especially since I know I was supposed to love this ButThe characters were enough to drive a saint batty Cardross was an idiot How can he except his wife to know he loves her if he never tells her and when anything comes up he immediately assumes the worst about her And let me not leave his wife out of the blame Nell was a goose for not telling Cardross the whole truth from the beginning I really don t know how she planned to explain herself the deeper she went But she was sweet and so I did like herThen we have the abominable Letty oh she was awful Almost but not uite a Tiffany Wield Spoiled rotten Couldn t abide her Dysart was Nell s reckless brother he was probably the most amusing character if a trifle daft But even he didn t live up to my expectations Sadly these characters just were not Rule Horry Pelham and Rupert This was no new and improved The Convenient Marriage but a rehashing with duller characters I missed Horry s witty remarks and Rule s dry humor and Pelham s helpful monkeying While reading that I couldn t stop laughing while reading this I didn t laugh once I did smile at the end but I guess I m just disappointed I didn t find this humorous And that this Was supposedly about Nell and Cardross but they never felt like a true couple to me Did they even go anywhere together in this book I don t recall He never seemed to do anything with her she was just like a pet feed her clothe her and pamper her But heaven forbid you let her know you love her She has to guess by your kind acts towards her family Bah Heyer has done better couples in my humble opinion Now to admit it I never intended to like this than The Convenient Marriage and I didn t G a few swears a past mistress and nothing else

April Lady

As of late she's been unable to look him in the eyeImpetuous Lady Helen Cardross had collected uite a basket of little white lies in her efforts to help those less fortunate than herself There were for example her own dashing debt ridden brother and her husband's love sick youthful sister But to her adored and adoring lord and master there could be no dissembling of integrity honor or truth One faced up to grim reality unless one were Lady HelenWhen his family's priceless jewels disappear Lord Cardross What a good story April Lady resembled The Convenient Marriage a lot but the heroine in this one was far enjoyable Lady Nell is young inexperienced innocent and repeatedly called a goose but for all that I loved her and didn t think she was silly at all She was the sort of girl I would love to have as a friend I could relate to her in many ways and I felt very bad for her when things escalated so dramatically after she chose to hid from her husband that she had a debt of three hundred pounds Her reasons for hiding that debt were in my opinion very understandable The story opens with Nell and her husband the Earl of Cardross who are very deeply in love with each other but are both under the impression that the other doesn t return their regard This love story had much potential but it was unfortunately often put in the shade by Cardross s half sister Letty s love affair with a certain Mr Allandale Personally I didn t care much for Letty as she was a very spoilt annoying chit not as bad as Tiffany Wield in The Nonesuch but bad enough to wish her out of the spotlight where I found she too often was put nor did I feel much for her betrothal to Mr Allandale I think that too much of the book was focused on them and there weren t enough interactions between Nell and GilesCardross is a rather unmemorable hero as he is for the better part of the book in ignorance of what is going on under his roof since all the characters seem to deem it best he shouldn t know of the dreadful happenings lest he fly into a rage with his wife andor half sister He did get mad and no wonder since no one will bother to set matters to rights with him I felt bad for him poor husband desperately in love with his wife thinking she married him for the money and now bothered by a vexatious half sister who has taken it into her head to marry a penniless man Everyone was playing in his back it seemed as though he were the very worst of men I liked him every time he put on an appearance but that was sadly very seldomNevertheless I couldn t but give April Lady a high rating for all that because I still enjoyed it a lot Nell was an excellent protagonist her brother Dysart was over the top hilarious and awesome the plot was engaging and there was so much humour and fun Regency slang as to have me chuckle to myself repeatedly which resulted in my brothers demanding not very civilly that I shut up Georgette Heyer is such a wonderful author I simply cannot wait for my next read by her

characters April Lady

Is aghast at the idea that his lovely new wife might be the culprit but he soon discovers the truth about Lady Nell's situation And between his concern over his wife's spending sprees rescuing her impulsive brother from one scrape after another and attempting to prevent his own half it's no wonder the much tried earl can't see where he's gone wrong And now owing a shocking amount of money Nell doesn't dare tell him the truth that she's loved him from the first and thought he'd married her for convenienc This was a very good historical romance novel This is the second book I have read by this author Both books were replete with simpering women and gamblers It is a story of unreuited love The man and wife love each other but do not know how to let the other one know I enjoyed the naritor She did the voices and accents very wellI highly recommend this book to allEnjoy and Be BlessedDiamond

    Final comments and a DNF So after a helpful discussion in the comment thread below I read the first chapter in which the heroine Nell who's been married for a year to a nice and wealthy handsome and titled guy acts like an idiot and annoys me in ways than I want to count Okay actually I will count She's been wildly extravagant in her spending She's giving money to her gambling addict brother to get him out of debt after her husband Cardros

    35★ Look even a weaker GH romance is still head shoulders above romances by other writers so I have to rate GH's novels against each other sadly although I am very fond of Nell Giles this isn't one of GH's best works It was rushed out when GH was in financial difficulty I'm afraid it shows GH has to work hard to sell the plot on

    As a number of other reviewers have pointed out this amusing but unsatisfactory confection is a less well done reworking of the theme of Heyer's earlier The Convenient Marriage; that is the love match in which neither spouse realizes that the other loves him or her This time we unfortunately have no grounds for the love itself which given the unattractive traits they exhibit during the course of the story leaves the rea

    Romance writers take their reputation in their hands when they spin a tale about an already married couple The misunderstandings of married life have a very different flavor from those of courtship and where is the thrill of the chase Georgette Heyer surely understood this but perhaps she liked setting herself
