Resenha em Contexto: Um Perfeito Cavalheiro (Bridgertons # 3) por Julia Quinn
Comentários extras: Originalmente foi publicado nos EUA em 2001, e é provavelmente o livro mais famoso da série. Pode ser lido fora de ordem ou mesmo se não leu os títulos anteriores.
"It suddenly made sense. Only twice in his life had he felt this inexplicable, almost mystical attraction to a woman. He’d thought it remarkable, to have found two, when in his heart he’d always believed there was only one perfect woman out there for him.
His heart had been right. There was only one."
"A Sorta Fairytale" Tori Amos - Bem, é isso, não é?
"Standing Outside a Broken Phone Booth with Money in my Hand" Primitive Radio Gods - Não consigo lembrar porque coloquei essa música na lista. Mas amo a musica, e tem algo sobre a medolia que me faz pensar nesse livro.
"Whenever, Wherever" Shakira - Amantes que nunca conseguem estar no mesmo lugar. E mais, nunca me canso dessa música.
"The Mummer's Dance" Loreena McKennitt - Uma música tão linda e atmosferica. Maravilhosa música de fundo para escrever.
Eagle-eyed readers will find mention of the Duke of Ashbourne and the Earl of Macclesfield (heroes of Splendid and Everything And The Moon, respectively) in one of Lady Whistledown's columns. Neither Alex nor Robert actually appears in the book, though.
It took a while to come up with a good title for this book. The most humorous suggested title came from the folks at Barnes & Noble, who suggested SOPHIE'S CHASE.
The shoe on the cover is a real shoe! I picked it out on a website featuring wedding couture and emailed the URL to my editor (who was married in shoes by the same designer!)
When I was in college, I had a teaching assistant from England whose last name was Crabtree. I liked the name so much I decided to give it to the caretakers of Benedict's cottage.
All the terms and phrases in the fencing scene are correct and approved by my husband, who was captain of the varsity fencing team at Harvard. (He also fenced in the Junior Olympics!)
An Offer From a Gentleman received a facelift in September 2009 (see new cover above). The new cover is gorgeous—I just love the shoe on the steps! But while the cover may have changed, the words have not. The story is exactly the same as it was when released in 2001.
