Her beauty rivaled only by her sensibility, Venetia Lanyon is nearly resigned to spinsterhood, thanks to the enormous amount of responsibility she inherited with a Yorkshire estate, an invalid brother and the lackluster efforts of two wearisomely persistent suitors. Then she meets her neighbor, the infamous Lord Damerel, a charming rake shunned by polite society--exactly the type of man that a woman of quality should stay away from. Though his scandalous past and deepest secrets give Venetia every reason to mistrust him, a rogue always gets what he wants. Without warning, his demanding kiss threatens to become a bachelor's undoing…and a spinster's most passionate awakening.

I’m glad this was a buddy-read. Reading this with others and being able to write many ranting updates made it far more enjoyable. You see, this really wasn’t a good fit for me. Overall, the plot is rather ridiculous, and I never really felt the attraction of the romantic couple. Yes, Heyer somew...

4.0 Venetia by Georgia Heyer
One of the few bad things about having friends on book sites who's opinions I tend to agree with and who write great reviews is that I often have nothing to little to add. In this case, though it worked out great, because I couldn't really figure out what I thought about this book, and Murder by Dea...

I feel like I've talked myself out on this one with the buddy read (in a good way - that was fun!) so I don't really feel motivated to write up a full review. I'll just say that I never really warmed up to Venetia, the softest emotion I felt for Damerel was pity, but the witty dialog and character i...
