CHAPTER 1. "Gabriella, I insist," said Mrs. Gordon firmly, smoothing out the letter which lay before her on the breakfast table and flicking an imaginary crumb off its well-perused surface

CHAPTER 1. Gordon firmly, smoothing out the letter which lay before her on the breakfast table and flicking an imaginary crumb off its well-perused surface. It is extremely kind in your sister to make the offer at all, with you already past the usual age for a girl making her come-out in Society.

GABRIELLA, my very first published book, was originally a 1992 Harlequin Regency. A lost wager obliges the Duke of Ravenham to bring a pretty little nobody from the country into fashion for the London Season. That irksome duty turns into something quite different as he falls under the spell of his protege’s innocent charm. Gabriella is in London at her mother’s insistence, but she’d much rather assist in running her father’s veterinary practice than attempt to fit into fashionable society.

He lost a wager . . . but won a treasure. Due to a lost wager, the Duke of Ravenham is obliged to bring a pretty little nobody from the country into fashion among the high-sticklers of London Society. Ravenham would never refuse a debt of honor, no matter how unorthodox, so he overlooks Miss Gordon’s vulgar relations to do what is necessary, escorting the unsophisticated chit to balls, etc. But what he expects to be an irksome duty turns out to be something quite different as he falls under the spell of his protege’s innocent charm. When he lost that wager, he definitely never counted on losing his heart as well! First impressions can be deceiving. Miss Gabriella Gordon only came to London at her mother’s and sister’s insistence, for she’d much rather assist in running her father’s veterinary practice than attempt to fit into fashionable society. No sooner has she arrived in London than the exalted (and exceedingly handsome) Duke of Ravenham comes to call. The reason is less than flattering, however: due to a lost wager, the Duke is forced to bring Gabriella into fashion, a “favor” she would certainly refuse if her family would let her. But the more time she spends in the dashing Duke’s company, the more conflicted she feels—particularly when she discovers they have more in common than she ever dared dream.

The Duke of Ravenham has lost a wager. His penalty is assuring the successful coming out of an acquaintance's sister-in-law, Miss Gabriella Gordon. Gabriella does not want a coming out. Her mother and sister insist, however. Gabriella would prefer staying in the country attending her father's veterinary practice. The Duke does not want to assist her either, but his debt of honor must be paid. It would seem that these two people are worlds apart, but, maybe not.

Hiatt's writing style is very simple and straightforward. The story is formulaic. It reads more like a teen novel, and would be appropriate for that age group. It is an easy, quick read, with a likeable H and h, but there is little emotional depth. The couple seems to be mildly in like. The emotion of love is given lip service, but no real evidence is presented. And romance? None. The couple are "proper" in all interactions, and passion is nonexistent. I do not mind a lack of physical passion, but a lack of emotional passion seems too sterile, and does not ring true.

This book is not a bad read. It is not a great one either. While reading this book, I could not help but think that a better writer could have made this plot line zing. This writer, however, only let it rise to mediocrity.

The problem is, no one can touch Georgette Heyer when it comes to clean Regency romances. She's the best, and few can live up to her. This was, as many reviewers have stated, a sweet romance--with the actual romance one of the least interesting aspects of the story! Gabriella was strong and good, her character consistent throughout the book. It was hard to understand why she falls in love with the duke (except for the fact that he is a duke)--their relationship was kind of matter-of-fact and he may have been the least developed character in the story. Still--it was a fun read.

FYI: no sex, no bad language

I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Hiatt's first regency romance whose strong hero and heroine had a very bumpy and quite humorous beginning. Can a romantic relationship result between a capable, responsible and intelligent, handsome but not particularly beautiful, young woman raised in the country assisting her father, a veterinary surgeon, bring a slightly haughty, extremely attractive and much sought after duke to his knees? The duke loses a bet to his quirky, lifelong best friend who requires for payment that the duke perform a favor to the next man who walks in the door of their club. The man just happens to be the young woman's brother-in-law, who asks the duke to present her to the ton and help her succeed in finding a good match. The characters were all charmingly rounded and grew with the story line. Despite the unlikely outcome, this reader was highly invested and found it very easy to suspend disbelief. The romance was sweet but not silly and held my attention from first page to last. I highly recommend this book to fans of the genre from older teens to grandmas despite allusions to peers and their paramours, and other such subjects common to this period of history. No offensively graphic scenes or language was noted. The author makes right from wrong clear in a mostly humorous fashion. I really look forward to reading more from this author.

If you like pride and prejudice type stories then you will like this novel. Its well written and the characters are enjoyable. There were a few errors but so few that they didn't bother me at all. I a!so appreciated a clean romance, no sex scenes here. It was a fairly quick read, which my husband is grateful for since it means I won't be up until 2am again reading. ???? I'll be looking to read more from Hiatt.

If you’re a fan of Regency Romance chances are you’ve read this novel at least ten times, all of which were better done. Two people that don’t want to be together are thrust into each other’s company one by a debt owed and the other familial pressure. Though a common theme and formatting, the idea of the piece could have been executed at a higher quality level leading to a more readable work. I never cared about the characters or story. The way that the story is written in simplistic and expected and where interest could have been fostered, the plot twists are predictable and contrived.

I liked what there was of it, but it is obviously a hook to get you to buy more of what should have been one book. Really, this only equals about 3 chapters of a book. Won't buy the rest just out of protest

Duke of Raverham and Gabriella Gordon were at different ends of the societal spectrum.

A Duke loses a bet to a good friend and a wager must be paid. He must introduce a young lady to the ton using his influence and title so that she will be accepted socially.

Who would question a Duke's choice of companion? Even though her sister has been shunned by elite society with good reason and Gabriella's own honor has been called into serious question?

The Duke cannot allow his own reputation to be damaged because he had made a harmless bet and lost. He assumed he knew the worst of the chit which was that she had no dowry and this was her first visit to London. If people assumed she was of highborn blood.......not his problem.

When he us told that not only is she another man's mistress but his identity is despicable, he cannot believe how clever her deceit has been and now it is his problem.

Only one thing to do. He must divest himself of her. He's furious with himself for not seeing the truth!!
