This is my first Georgette Heyer and I really regretted that I started with this book I should have heeded the warnings of my friends about this novel but I already bought it so I just went ahead and read itLet s discuss Cleone I was actually forgiving of her at the beginning of the book because to a certain degree I kind of understood her desire for Philip to be polished I considered it as a product of her society back then Considering the historical context I think it was natural or normal to put a lot of importance on appearances and whatnot In that vein I don t really fault Cleone it s what she did halfway through the book that annoyed me When Philip proposed to her a second time she got angry at him for being a flirt in Paris Um hello Weren t you blatantly flirting with Henry in front of Philip before Double standards much Ugh And then she goes on to get engaged with two gentlemen What the fuck By the end of the book Cleone managed to convince me that she s nothing but a stupid silly and selfish girl who does not deserve Philip s loveI felt really bad for Philip James and all of the readers who have to endure Cleone s existence
