Sep 13, Netha rated it really liked it Shelves: I felt sorry for Juliet but admired her for her determination and how she never let the harpies that are the other young society maidens and her own mother get her down. For the most part I liked Juliet.

Juliet’s mother is determined to marry her off to a slimy older man Juliet has romxnce reason to fear, her mother has done her best to convince Juliet that no man will ever find her desirable once he knows of her amputation and Alec fears the reprehensible actions of both his father and his uncle will make it impossible for him to love a woman passionately and bring her happiness.


The romance between Juliet and Alec was adorable, and the whole book was just a lighthearted read; there wasn’t a lot of drama between Alec and Juliet and how they finally collinx together, I really enjoyed reading the second book in Manda Collins Ugly Duckings series. I think this suffers from too much story. Juliet watched him, her expression resigned. I modeled the mothers of the Ducklings The Fabulous Featherstone Sisters after the famous Gunning sisters who were actual Regency figures.

Manda Collins is now on my auto-buy list, and I can’t clllins for the final book in this series. His offer to teach her to dance was sweet, even as he couldn’t understand why he was so drawn to her.

Will I read more by this author? Very few people know what really happened to Juliet when she spent time in Europe with her family. Deep in the London underworld, a dear friend has vanished, and Juliet fears the worst. Manda is quickly becoming one of my favorite authors. She may have to fight against her mother, but even then she knew Alec would always stand behind her.

But Juliet Shelby was as innocent as she was beautiful. Just that by comparison they were found lacking by the ton. Alec is surprisingly protective and supportive of Juliet, and one thing I really enjoyed was their romance.

Overall I enjoyed the book, but it wasn’t something that had me crying, laughing and swooning.

Turner, Juliet’s beloved music teacher, a woman who, over the years, has been more a mother to her than her own mother goes missing, it’s Alec who offers his help in the search. Alec’s did his best to make Juliet feel comfortable with him. Alec was in no way rakish at all. I think I may love you. Even so, his quarry jarred with surprise, and turned to face him. I really admire her courage in writing a unique heroine with such a severe disability. So perhaps she had not been lying about her reasons for remaining at home.


How to Romance a Rake is going straight to my keeper shelf. He mamda tell she was nervous about something and tried to put her at ease.

He watched in fascination as Juliet continued walking backward, presumably watching for some authority figure, who would arrest her escape. I always have a penchant bluestocking heroines and Juliet was one along with her other two cousins.

There were many scenes that had me giggling out loud. He knows that she is shy and not a “fashionable miss” but he can’t help but feel a spark whenever she is around.

Manda Collins

Juliet can not believe that one of the tons most eligible bachelors is paying her any attention but she sees no way to gracefully refuse. One night, Juliet gets a verbal lashing from her mother as she catches her daughter doing the unthinkable, “learning to dance”. One with Juliet’s maid being where she hadn’t been before, but the biggest being with Juliet’s injury changing location several times.

I believe she loved her daughter in a small way but her own happiness and importance in society was valued much higher.
