Hardcover  Õ Arabella ePUB Ü To Arabella Tallant, the eldest daughter of a penniless country clergyman, the invitation to stay with her London godmother was like the key to heaven, for in addition to living in the glamorous city, Arabella might even find a suitable husband there Armed with beauty, virtue and a benevolent godmother, the impetuous but impoverished Arabella embarked on her first London season with her mother s wish in mind snare a rich husband On her way to London Arabella s carriage breaks down outside the hunting lodge of the wealthy and socially prominent Robert Beaumaris, fate cast her in his path Arabella s only fault is impetuosity, and her pride stung when she overhears a remark of her path of arrogant host, who accused her of being another petty female after his wealth, the proud, headstrong ingenue made a most startling claim she was an heiress A pretense that deeply amuses the jaded Beau To counter her white lie, Beaumaris launches her into high society and thereby subjects her to all kinds of amorous fortune hunters in London and other embarrassmentsSuddenly Arabella found herself the talk of the ton and pursued by some of the most eligible young men of the day But only one caught Arabella s fancy Beaumaris, the handsome and dedicated bachelor She should know better than to allow herself to be provoked by nonpareil Beau But would her deceitful charade destroy her one chance for true love Beaumaris, however, although a most artful matrimonial dodger, badly underestimated his seemingly naive adversary When compassionate Arabella rescues such unfortunate creatures as a mistreated chimney sweep and a mixed breed mongrel, she foists them upon Beaumaris, who finds he rather enjoys the role of rescuer and is soon given the opportunity to prove his worth in the person of Bertram Tallant, the also impetuous young brother of Arabella

    Arabella is one of thecharming and funny Georgette Heyer books that I ve read, with a major plus in the form of one of my favorite Heyer book boyfriends, Mr Robert Beaumaris Arabella Tallant is a lovely, unspoiled girl, but certain to be hampered in the eyes of London society by the fact that she s a poor country vicar s daughter from Yorkshire Nevertheles

    Until the ending sequence, the book was 4 stars for me So many bits and pieces of the book reminded me of Pride and Prejudice in a good way I was delighted to relive the joy of reading P P I love a damsel that s not easily taken in by the hero or faints at the first sight of him Arabella, though inexperienced and quite innocent, had a sharp mind and acute self a
