I applaud SSP’s talent, that she attempts and succeeds at fitting it all in. I never doubted, beguilev, that his heart was in the right place. Also, upon learning that her fiance is over the moon over another woman, Frances is apparently okay with this because she’s in love with another man, who ends up being Lillian’s mentor.
The only thing about Lily that could have been better is if she’d believed in Anthony’s love for her a little sooner than the final pages of the book. But I’m not sure if that is it either. The book was much better than I expected, though I suppose that is not saying much; nor is it saying much to say that it is quite good as a romance novel.

It’s a sweet story of a young woman in Regency England who is I’m writing books that I love and having the time of my life doing it, and that’s an accomplishment that this former high school senior is perfectly content with.
Because of her affliction, Lily was largely ignored and many even believed her to be demon-possessed and amoral apparently common misperceptions in that era about deaf and spenceer people. The hero, of course, has to be blackmailed into courting her, but there’s a plot, at least Account Options Sign in. Home Groups Talk Zeitgeist.
Lillian ends up being one This was one of those books that took me by surprise. Selected pages Title Page. Ampe ngulang bacanya hehehe!!! Unusual storyline, interesting characters not just the main protagonists, but the secondary ones also Covered a topic I’d not come across before in this genre and interested me enough to want to undertake further research on attitudes to physical handicaps in this period.
The honest misunderstanding are so easy with all that pride and arrogance of this time, but through in a language barrier and the confusion is expected. Too much going on, some without enough explanation. She learned sign language to communicate, but wanted a season in London.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. A deep and abiding love for Lily snuck up on Anthony when he least expected it. For he knew that beneath the surface spenxer her quiet beauty, Lillian was a priceless jewel. Susab it is because all the couples are dealt with beguied settled, one way or another, in one book.
Such as it is for go This book turned out to be much better than I thought it would be. Rita rated it it was amazing Feb 14, Lily is a heroine who is both sweet and spunky. Lisa rated it liked it Dec 30, Lots of miscommunications, especially since Lily can’t talk well, lots of misunderstandings, but in the end Graydon and Lily marry. Really enjoyed the sign language addition makes me wonder when it became more socially acceptableand the fact that this was actually a romance of 4 couples, most prominently, Graydon and Lillian.
Refresh and try again. So readers get four romances for the price of one, although the paaul two were only seen through the eyes of the main hero and heroine.
Margaret rated it liked it Sep 22, Beguiled Susan Spencer Paul No preview available – Lily’s brother, Aaron, has a reputation as a devil, which is evidenced in his high-handed approach to finding Lily a husband. The purposeful manipulation that Aaron executes with seemingly no regard to anyone’s feelings was weird because despite Anthony’s ‘flawless reputation’, what big brother purposely tries to specner his baby sister into marrying someone she just met?
After being poisoned by a distraught servant when she was very young, she suffered damaged vocal cords which make it extremely difficult for her to speak. Best of all, I adored that he saved every little note she wrote him and sometimes takes them out to look at them, remembering each moment with complete clarity. In fact, he’s utterly charmed right from the start by her animation while she’s talking with her hands.
