3.5-3.75(-ish) stars! So I had all these thoughts to share about this Maya Rodale book, only to realize that I already shared most of these exact same thoughts while reviewing two other Maya Rodale books! While my opinion of some authors' work varies rather wildly from one book to the next, depending on plot, theme, tone, etc it seems I have a surprisingly consistent opinion on what I love about Maya Rodale----and what I don't. Maya Rodale's writing style is, for lack of a better adjective, Tess [...]

Buddy read with Andrea :) I enjoyed this book. It was funny and easy to read. The main characters were okay, but I prefered the hero better than the heroine; she was really annoying sometimes and I got tired of her indealizing the hero and sighing everytime she sees him it was just too much! Thankfully, I was in a good mood and managed to finish it! I enjoyed the second half of the book much better than the first. I loved what the hero did to get her back and found it hilarious! it is what saved [...]

What a disappointing end to a guilty-pleasure series. If you've read the others, you already know about (or don't care about) Rodale's handling of the era and the fantastical setup of the newspaper. You also know about Annabelle and Knightly because that's been going on from the start. I wasn't exactly looking forward to the resolution, but I finally took the time to track the book down and give it a shot. Sadly. Because pretty much any story I could come up with in my head would have been bette [...]

Annabelle Swift is Writing Girl #4 - a cute little gimmick thought up by newspaper tycoon Derek Knightley, who happens to be the illegitimate older son of a late Earl (whose ton-family understandably despises him). Derek is nothing if not a savvy newspaperman, and one of his cardinals rules is that scandal equals sales. Girls writing is scandalous - girls chasing down stories, writing the stories down in their own words, with their own unique voice, and being paid for their endeavors is not some [...]

I've given this a B for narration and a B- for content at AudioGals, so I'm leaving it at 4 stars.Seducing Mr. Knightly is the fourth and final book in Ms Rodale’s Writing Girls series, in which each of the four heroines are columnists for one of London’s foremost newspapers, The London Weekly.Heroines 1-3 are now happily settled, so it’s the turn of number four, Miss Annabelle Swift, who pens the weekly advice column for the paper. She’s quiet and unassuming, wears ill-fitting, drab clo [...]

I know, it's so unexpected that I disliked yet another genre romance!If we read romance in hopes to self-insert, well, Seducing Mr. Knightly should have been my shining fantasy moment. A shy lady writer who dresses badly, has a rich romantic life (entirely in her own head) and thinks she will end up alone? Idly dreaming about the older, more powerful guy at work, frequently while at work? Pretty much every single iteration of my life as a working woman has been this story. I had my journal at th [...]

Annabelle Swift has loved Derek Knightly, editor and owner of The London Weekly, for three years, six months, three weeks and two days, all without his notice. She has decided that now is the time to change this and asks the readers of her column, Dear Annabelle, for advice on gaining the attention of a man that pays you no mind. The answers pour in and Annabelle sets about trying out some of the suggestions. After a variety of attempts; lower bodices, smoldering glances, forgotten objects seems [...]

My historical romance binge continues with Seducing Mr. Knightly. I haven't read the other books of this series. To the best of my recollection, this is also my first Maya Rodale. I had no trouble reading it as a stand alone and enjoyed it enough I'll seek out the prior books. Fans of Cinderella type stories will enjoy it.Annabelle Swift is the Dear Annabelle for The London Weekly, a newspaper run my Mr. Derrick Knightly. Knightly is the bastard son of an Earl.

4 Stars (only for the heroine)Yes, the hero is a huge nodcock but the heroine stole the show. I absolutely loved her! Her little schemes and plots were hilarious to read about and I just can't tell you how much fun I had reading about her. Two words: utterly adorable. But yeah, derek was an oblivious nodcock and no one special but at least he got his act together by the end.

Annabelle was overshadowed in all the previous Writing Girl books by the other Girls, who are all more daring and outgoing. But her story is a lovely, charming one about a shy girl coming out of her shell and finally going after the man she wants. And yeah, he's sexy. A perfect light, romantic read for a summer day.

DNF. I got about 70% through simply because I needed something to read to get me to sleep since exams is stressing me out but sadly this one just didn't cut it for me. Too bad because it had a great premise! Quiet, shy Annabelle is sick to death of pining away for her clueless, sexy, self-made Editor and decides to take charge and seduce him. It had so much potential to be wonderful, but never actually rose to the occasion sadly. There just didn't seem to be any real connection between these cha [...]

Okay, so I know that Seducing Mr Knighly isn't going to win any prizes for originality, but I found it to be sweet, funny, sexy and rather charming.While the story of "wallflower suffers unrequited love for gorgeous man she's known for years" isn't new, I did like the way that Annabelle decided to try to do something about it; in fact, it was rather refreshing to see a (supposedly) dowdy and unpreposessing character determine to get out there and change her life rather than bowing to the weight [...]

There's a good story somewhere in this book, but for this reader the story was overwhelmed by the modern language and behavior, the repetition of the characters' thoughts, and the author's unsuccessful efforts to be as funny as Tessa Dare. It's too bad, really, for the main characters are very well drawn -- Annabelle, the invisible, dowdy spinster and Derek, the bastard son of an earl who yearns for acceptance by society. The other characters, however, are mere stereotypes. I don't demand 100% a [...]

I just finished the last book in this series and I'm sad to leave the Writing Girls - they are a fun group of intrepid females working in Regency era London for a paper that is progressive enough it hires females.All the books in the series are good, but I liked this one best because we have been lead to it throughout the first three books. We are made aware of Annabelle's infatuation with Mr. Knightly, owner/publisher/editor of "The London Weekly" from the very first book. Annabelle has been a [...]

Review originally posted at Ramblings From This ChickThere aren't enough words to express just how much I LOVED this book. When I read Seducing Mr. Knightly I was in a reading slump and it quickly pulled me out and has definitely made my list of favorite books for 2012. This book was superb and it just reminds me why I love Maya Rodale's work so much. I couldn't seem stop myself once I started reading this book. It was just so consuming and just so very good.Annabelle works as a advice columnist [...]

That is the question advice columnist Annabelle Swift asks the readers of Dear Annabelle in the London Weekly Newspaper…Annabelle is the quiet one of Mr. Knightly’s Writing Girls. She has lived with her brother’s family since she was orphaned in her early teens and is treated more as a member of the household staff than as family. Her family [...]

I loved seeing Annabelle and Knightly finally get their happily ever after! I wasn't sure about my feelings for Annabelle at first because she always seemed too mild. But, I really liked learning more about her. Her quiet strength and resolve was very admirable especially once the truth about her home situation came out.Knightly did get a little on my nerves with his obliviousness to Annabelle's feelings and I thought his feelings came about a little too quickly for my taste It was fascinating, [...]

This heroine is awful. At one point, one of her friends says something along the lines of "you've deemed yourself 'she who loves Knightly'". I'm glad someone said it. She is the worst Mary Sue I've ever seen. I know she is supposed to be wishy-washy and then grow a spine, but we are given nothing that defines her as a human being. She's a shy, romantic in love with her boss. She is so self-sacrificing, she tells her boss over whom she almost killed herself to go marry another woman in order to s [...]

I’ve read others in Maya Rodale’s Writing Girls Series and enjoyed them, but there is always something about them that bothers me. Seducing Mr. Knightly is by far the best that I’ve read. Annabelle is likeable and engaging and funny. But my main problem with this is that the hero isn’t that great of a hero. He only notices the heroine because she starts wearing low cut bodices and doing her hair differently. Up to that point, he is a miserly workaholic, who seeks any opportunity to climb [...]

The setup and implementation were fun, but I felt like this book had more potential than it realized. Quip: I don't understand how you can be attempting to lightly brush a man's hand or arm and accidentally get his privates, no matter how he suddenly shifts position. Maybe if he only had one arm, and you were seated on the side of his missing the arm?

DNFed by page 150. How many times do we have to read about the shy, spinster heroine living with her over the top cruel sister in law (who's just mean to be mean), but gets away with being sneaky that no ones notices anything because she's so unnoticeable?And why is it the moment she lowers her cleavage, unwinds her tight bun and does a little flirting, the hero who still has issues about being on the wrong side of the blanket now wants the heroine when before he barely gave her a second look, l [...]

Enjoyable but light historical with an "I've loved him for years but he's never noticed me" theme. Till Annabelle Swift aka Writing Girl No 4 comes up with a scheme and engages the whole of her London readership in helping her in "Seducing Mr Knightly" aka "The Nodcock".3.5 - 4 stars.
