Impetuous Innocent | [Stephanie Laurens]

Impetuous Innocent

After the death of her father, Georgiana Hartley returns home to England - only to be confronted with the boorish advances of her cousin. Knowing no one, she flees to Dominic Ridgely's estate, hoping the nobleman will bestow a neighborly kindness upon her. The viscount hears Georgiana's plea to find her a position as a lady's companion with barely concealed ill humor. A lovely innocent such as Miss Hartley subjected to that wretched existence?

Publisher's Summary

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

The viscount hears Georgiana's plea to find her a position as a lady's companion with barely concealed ill humor. A lovely innocent such as Miss Hartley subjected to that wretched existence? The very idea is preposterous. Instead, he takes matters into his own hands, introducing her to his sister's influence.

Suddenly Georgiana is transformed into a lady, charming the ton and cultivating a bevy of suitors. Everything is unfolding according to Dominic's plan...until he realizes that he desires Georgiana for his own.

    "Impetuous Innocent"

    Another Laurens winner. I've read or listened to most of her works. She has never disappointed me.

    "Typical"

    I was in the mood for a period romance and I thought this one sounded interesting. It was ok, but predictable. I ended up becoming annoyed toward the end. I was 18 once and I hope that I was not that stupid.

    "OK but not up to her usual standard"

    This book was slow and annoying. All of the characters act stupidly due to misconceptions about the other characters and no one talks to anyone about what is going on. All of the problems that come up would be easily solved if any one character shared their concerns with another character. If all of this pussy footing around is not annoying enough, there is not one good love scene in the entire book.

    I am quiet and love being comfortable. I love curling up in a corner either reading or listening to a nice romantic book.

    "Just okay"

    I love Stephanie Laurens, she is truly on of my favorite romance authors, but this was not one of her best work. It was just okay for me, I have read all of her books and this one just did not do it for me. Not enough sexual excitement as I was expecting and the heroine was riding my last nerve. Fair, but not the best!

    Mother of 3, grandmother of 6, retired nurse and substance abuse counselor. Thrilled to have the time to read or listen to books again.

    "frustrating"

    Extremely slow, boring and immature. I wanted to literally scream for the author to get on with the story. This is my first time reading this author and i doubt seriously if i will ever read her again. A waste of time, money and a lesson in patience waiting for the story to get the least bit entertaining or interesting. Don't bother or waste your money or credit.
