] Anyways, so far, I've read Arabella (novel) and Pistols for Two (short stories).
I've not read those. My library is missing many titles. In the computer, but missing from the shelf. boo hoo :-(
] her heroines seem to be very young and naive girls who end up with older, rich men who are fed up with the "normal" sophisticated women in society.
] I was just wondering, are a lot of her stories based on this type of plot or has it just been due to my choice of novels that I have ended up reading a lot of this type?
I had/have the same problem. It seems they hate each other, then fall in love. sound familiar> ;-) But as I'm able to find and read more of her books, I see that they are not always so similar. 'A Convenient Marriage' and 'Venetia' are two of my favorites.
'Faro's daughter' has a heroine not so naive, with street smarts. She has the hero kidnapped, tied up and held in a damp basement. She also dresses up as a loose woman, the description of the dress, hair, the scene at Vauxhall are really funny. Pure GH.
