Lady Polly Since read The Virtuous Cyprian, I ve been wondering what is the story of Polly and Henry Long since, I cannot find Lady Polly on any bookstore Thanks to Internet, I found the e book version.And the story is not disappointed me Note I don t care what the lists say, but I would read Miss Verey s Proposal before I read this one Not sure why it was written out of sequence I do like to read them in chronological order of the time not the publishing date What would we do without Harlequin Historicals Authors of this genre have to start somewhere This must be where Nicola started The first one, the Virtuous Cyprian , was among her first books This book is a Lady Polly better than it Everything was going along ju Note I don t care what the lists say, but I would read Miss Verey s Proposal before I read this one Not sure why it was written out of sequence I do like to read them in chronological order of the time not the publishing date What would we do without Harlequin Historicals Authors of this genre have to start somewhere This must be where Nicola started The first one, the Virtuous Cyprian , was among her first books This book is a Lady Polly better than it Everything was going along just fine until Lady Polly got out of character and acted like she didn t have a brain in her head I am now reading Miss Verey s Proposal so I am going to have to reread this one to figure out how the characters fit in this story Most of the characters appear in all of the books This one was a bit slow and really inconsistent even with itself view spoiler One minute Henry is so dissolute that Polly has to avoid him for the sake of her own reputation, then they dance with no apparent impact One minute she wants noto do with him because she saw him kiss a courtesan, and five seconds later he offers her his arm and she takes it, and a comment about the weather is as close as she gets to expressing her hurt and anger He lies to her, omits things that put her in r This one was a bit slow and really inconsistent even with itself view spoiler One minute Henry is so dissolute that Polly has to avoid him for the sake of her own reputation, then they dance with no apparent impact One minute she wants noto do with him because she saw him kiss a courtesan, and five seconds later he offers her his arm and she takes it, and a comment about the weather is as close as she gets to expressing her hurt and anger He lies to her, omits things that put her in real danger, and he s amused when his ruse of dissipation hurts her, but SHE has to apologize for hurting his little feelings when she doesn t tell him everything about an effort to blackmail her hide spoiler Go figure I really love Cornick s later work, so I ll keep reading I hated Polly, I can see where Polly was created to be the antithesis of Lucinda, and Polly comes up short. This book was pretty comparable with every other book I have read by this author I ve given ones and neverthan three so I decided that even though this book was contrived and predictable and the heroine was a milksop I would give it two. This was one of the earlier romances by Nicola Cornick It wasin the traditional regency style However the writing was so simple The romance between a young conventional girl raised strictly and a so called rake was developed through a series of misunderstandings which went on and on I just kept remembering Arabella by Georgette Heyer and her mastery over comedic situations This one was fairly boring with a lot of repetitive sentences. Lady Polly by Nicola Cornick released on Jul ,is available now for purchase
