And it’s not just that I happened to love themit’s that I totally bought THEIR compatibility, chemistry and soulmate-y connection to each other. I didn’t understand with her obvious attractive qualities why everyone was so fixated on Newbury as being this great catch- and the only catch. Nothing seemed to bother him so it was hard to get a good feel for his character. I have never read a hero such as he. Many, many laugh out loud moments from the beginning until Sebastion and Annabel get their happily ever after! A great read that while it might not be a 5 star, I still had a hard time putting it down, and would suggest it to anyone in need of a light Historical romance with a ton of drama. Still, overall, a good story.
The more time they spend together, the more she wants him. Why was Newbury the only option for Annabel for so long? Despite my fangirly adoration for this book, I wouldn’t necessarily recommend it for those craving a lot of angst, a lot of sex scenes there’s only one main sex scene, which for me was a plus but for others will probably be a drawback! With the earl dead, Seb inherited, making Annabel the next countess Annabel Winslow has a bit of a problem. One of his characters is killed by a pigeon. Annabel Winslow has spent the entire life in the country with her family, but her father’s death has led to financial worries. Annabel is a country lass who doesn’t really fit in with the English ton, but is obliged to find a match with the Wealthy Lord Newbury, a man who had once courted her grandmother and has the manners of a dog he’s just lewd and disgusting and old and ugly to top it off – typical.
This heroine is honestly bland.
Ten Things I Love About You (Bevelstoke, #3) by Julia Quinn
I cannot believe that Annabel even contemplated marrying him once Sebastian really entered the picture. She was funny, loyal, loving, and always made amusing lists in her head. May 04, Clare rated it it was amazing. She knew Annabel didn’t want him and wanted Sebastian instead.
If the story of a book is engaging enough, I don’t even mind that the hero and heroine don’t have sex but once in the second to last chapter.
Annabel Winslow has an excellent sense of humor and is not annoying! I have to admit, the Lord of Newbury just creeped me the hell out. Which made the heterosexual romance aspect of the story a little weird. This book brought back pleasure reading.
I think I never felt something so strong towards a hero of any of the books I had read before. When she has the nerve to talk to our hero at the opera, they act like she has ruined herself. After they are formally introduced, Sebastian and Annabel are seen in close proximity at the opera.
Jun 01, jenjn79 rated it liked it Recommended to jenjn79 by: The uncle was allowed to assault the heroine multiple times and he pretty much just got away with it.
The 1 to 10 lists are sometimes funny but it gets old fast and seems forced at bevestoke. Some might call it “selflessness”. Worse, I thought the ton was very campy and over-dramatic. She’s neither likable or unlikable.

This geezer is the king of pervs. He is honest, forthright, loyal to family and friends, and his manners are impeccable. And suddenly she found herself not only courted by the lecherous uncle, but also the charming young nephew.
The Earl of Newbury, who wants to marry our heroine, is a disgusting lech and he gets away with a lot of crap. Nothing stands out about her and she is a bit indifferent, IMO, but she’s definitely not bad or annoying. She is the eldest child of a huge family, so her grandparents are trying to force her into marrying the villain.
I wanted more action. I was made extremely uncomfortable and upset by the fact that Lord Newbury disturbingly physically assaulted Annabel view spoiler [ not once, but twice.
Instead of finding things beveostoke, I found the cheesy. Even though the characters are set in a historical romance, the banter comes across as very, very modern.
He wants an heir as quickly as possible because his son had recently died without a male heir. After meeting Sebastian, she tries to keep him from finding out that his uncle was courting her and finds a friend in him – making her question whether she should really marry for money.

Ten Things I Love About You
But who should she marry? I still have an unhealthy obsession with Nick Jonas’ deliciously curly hair.
One of Ujlia uncles is technically one of Sebastian’s cousins. Sebastian Grey is still his easy going self, but behind his social mask, we start to see a man haunted by war and a poet who loves to see the colors of life. I loved reading this again Sometimes just having someone to truly talk to about your troubles, is a burden off your shoulders and with Annabel, Sebastian felt he could finally get some weight off his chest. Annabel was sweet and smart and strong and had a good sense of humor.
