The Blinding BeautyWhen Alexandra Farrish had to shepherd her younger sister Didi through a London season there was one worry she did not have There was no problem finding suitors for her charge Every man who me. 35 rounded up for not insulting my intelligenceThis book has two listings on Goodreads one is the paperback from 1991 and then this recent one being the Kindle edition I am not sure why there are two listings but there it is It is a very clean two kisses only and gentle romance Most of the characters are reasonably nice and intelligent though of course it can take them some time to come to terms with their own feelings Alexandra Sandy to her family is 28 years old and has been in charge of her younger half siblings 4 sisters and a brother for nearly 10 years Her father is alive but absent from the family most of the year Finances are tight but not entirely dire In an effort to economize she has brought all her siblings to London at the same time with the goal of launching 3 of her exceptionally beautiful sisters into society The eldest of these is Didi and she is the season's beauty and uickly gains all sorts of beaux She is willful and sneaky thus causing Sandy rather a lot of trouble Slightly younger are the twins Arie and Cassie who who were the opposite of Didi in almost every way Penny is the youngest and not old enough to be out She was the one I liked the most The Maruess of Malvern is the highest titled gentleman to court Did and conseuently is her favourite He is enraptured by her beauty but fights with Sandy at every turn Once he realises he is not in love with Didi he has to figure out how to let her save face so that he can turn his attentions onto her elder sister Not an easy task given how utterly selfish Didi is The whole thing was uite gentle and low angst I enjoyed the conversations all the characters had I could only have wished for Well that and Penny and their brother tellijng Didi home truths

The Unlikely ChaperoneT Didi became a slave to her sensationally stunning beautyDidi's list of instantly captivated conuests included even the magnificent Maruess of Malvern the most irresistible lord in London Alexandra should have. Overall I liked this book It was Mack's great style and the characters were well developed Penny was my favourite Those who deserved it got their HEA which was great I can't help wishing Didi got less than she ended up withThe storyline relied on the social rule that once a man decided that he really want to get to know a young woman he was pretty much committed to proposing to her While I know that it is the way of society I couldn't help get frustrated by itWhat was even frustrating was Alexandra's reaction to Malvern deciding not to offer for Didi I get that it threw her plans for the family's future but I thought she should have felt some measure of relief She knows that Didi is an awful person we had that internal dialogue and if she really cared about Malvern even if she didn't realise it she should have been a little happy that he was escaping a life with her sister but all her reactions were negative It almost made their final get together a shock yes we all knew it was coming because it's a romance book but the wow I love him moment was too abrupt
