    1 thought on “Victoria and the Rogue

    1. Victoria and the Rogue is one of my top favourites because, unusually for Meg Cabot, it’s a period setting – fun and flirting in the 19th Century? Yes please.Victoria is a sassy, independent heroine with an endearing bossy streak. Practical to the core, she has no time for female swooning fits, or day-dreaming about handsome men. Victoria’s mission in life is to help people with her sound (if often unwanted) advice. I just had to laugh at how Victoria went around re-organising everyone’s [...]

    2. Best YA Romance I have ever read -- the perfect steppingstone to classic Regency!I gave PANTS ON FIRE by Meg Cabot only two stars, but I am proud to give this story a full five or even more! So strange, this is a Regency novel and yet the heroine, Victoria, is more well-rounded, more assertive, and more independent by far than obnoxious Katie in the contemporary PANTS ON FIRE. All of Victoria's strong points, her self-confidence, courage, and her desire to organize and improve the world around h [...]

    3. This book is exactly what it looks like: a charming, funny, quick read with no added depth. While Victoria ostensibly has multiple love interests, it's obvious which rogue she'll end up with (view spoiler)[(Lord MALFREY?? come on, we ALL read Harry Potter) (hide spoiler)] - but for once, I didn't mind at all. The whole thing made me laugh:La, Victoria thought, very pleased at this turn of events. How jolly this is! A girl goes to chastise a cook for underdoing the roast, and comes back to the ta [...]

    4. Apesar de gostar bastante dos livros da autora, não gostei muito deste, ficou bastante abaixo das minhas expectativas.

    5. I really find this very cute!!!The story is simple and predictable, but it has this spark that will let you ask for what's next. We have Victoria, daughter of a Indian duke, who was shipped to England to look for a husband. She fell in love at first sight with the handsome Earl of Malfrey - Hugo who also confessed his love for her in an instant, but there is this one person who kept on annoying her and that's none other than Captain Jacob Carstairs. Based on the synopsis given above/from the boo [...]

    6. Victoria Arbuthnot was just four years old when her parents died while the family was visiting India. Since then, she has been raised in India by her uncles, but now that she is sixteen, she has been sent back to England to find a husband. On the long sea journey from India to London, Victoria meets Hugo Rothschild, the ninth early of Malfrey, who proposes to her shortly before the journey's end. Victoria is thrilled with the proposal. But why is Jacob Carstairs, who was also a passenger on the [...]

    7. I might like this one more than Nicola and the Viscount because of Jacob - the other short novel is light and funny but also would never happen to me because of the time period and circumstances. While I also probably wouldn't be trying to marry an earl at a super early age, I can understand roguish men and being taken by surprise by feelings. Jacob is swoon-worthy!The popped collar scene between Victoria and Jacob has forever been etched into my mind. This novel is a combination of sass and plu [...]

    8. This may have been fluff, but it was lovely fluff. About the best written book of this type possible. The heroine is so funny, the hero so dashing, and the villain has a villainous mother, just great. (Aside for Natalie: quite a few good kissing scenes)

    9. Not aggressively bad, but I did find myself mostly disliking it. Probably better suited to tween girls than discriminating adults. :)

    10. This a teen romance novel, set in the Regency era in England. Expect a lot of fluff, a lot of flirting, a lot of naivety, and a lot of cliches. Does that make it bad? No, because if you're going into this expecting something deeper, you've picked up the wrong book. This is a harmless "junk food" read, with an unreliable narrator who you either wish to strangle or just shake your head at them and sigh affectionately. Victoria is a 16-year-old pampered, orphaned heiress, who is just self-absorbed [...]

    11. Read in one sitting on ebook. I liked this title more than the Avon True Romance for Teens title I read several years previously that took place in the Wild West. This could be because I'm older or that it took place in England.Lady Victoria, orphaned daughter of a duke, has lived on an island her entire sixteen years of life, being cared for by her three uncles. Victoria is more likely to carry an elephant gun than a purse and this alienates her from her family in England. Her parents died of c [...]

    12. An old, old, old favourite. If I ever feel in the mood to escape back into my childhood I would probably read thismybe Who knows.Remembering back to my Year 9 days this was probably the first time I read a Young Adult Historical Romance. It's a good romance novel to recommend for YA without all the 18+ literature usually in the mature romances. A perfect classic historical romance :)

    13. I wanted to love this because it's Meg Cabot but I just couldn't. I mean I m glad I did eventually read it as I've wanted to for the past three years. The last fifty pages though had me very intrigued though.

    14. Faziam tempos que eu queria ter uma experiência com romance de época, e começar logo com Meg Cabot não foi só muito gostoso como também me fez ver todo um novo lado de uma das minhas autoras favoritas e que eu simplesmente não conhecia.Mesmo sendo narrado em terceira pessoa, em uma linguagem mais rebuscada e em um século totalmente diferente, é impossível não reconhecer todo o estilo da Meg em cada parágrafo. Ao mesmo tempo que são pomposos, os diálogos são fluidos e cheios do hum [...]

    15. This is the first Meg's historical fiction novel that I read and I LOVED it! I'm really surprised how fun and fast this read was :)

    16. This is the perfect book for a rainy day. Light and fluffy, a book to cosy up with. I also really liked the style of writing; each sentence drew me in and I became so consumed in the story, I started to feel the emotions Victoria was feeling. I'm sure I was pulling some funny faces when she was so frustrated and annoyed with Jacob Carstairs, as I started to get just as wound up, despite the fact that I thought he was hilarious.I loved the character of Victoria. She was so much fun and not the ch [...]

    17. I've found that I really like Meg Cabot's venture into this style of teen romance. True, it is fluff, but fluff in the style of Jane Austen. I love the period perspectives and how the stories are just feel-good love stories. Completely predictable, yet highly enjoyable. I hope Meg Cabot writes a few more.Victoria is an orphan who was raised by three uncles in India. She's a busybody who feels she must improve all those around her. Tired of her interfering ways, her uncles ship her off to England [...]

    18. MEG CABOT AND ROMANCE REQUIREMENTVictoria has grown up with her uncles in India. But now she is moving to England so that she can find a husband. On the boat over to England she meets Hugo, who proposes before they reach land. Victoria is crazy about Hugo and can't wait until they are married. However, another young man, Jacob, keeps popping into her affairs. When Jacob reveals that Hugo is only marrying Victoria for her money and that Hugo has a pretty disgraceful past, Victoria breaks off thei [...]

    19. I was pleasantly suprised by this book. I bought it for a couple of dollars at a book store in Myrtle Beach while on vacation. I had read her 'Princess Diaries' series and really enjoyed them. I thought this book was similar in style and setting. Boy was I wrong! But happy I was wrong. I LOVE regencies and this book is a regency! Its tells the store of Lady Victoria, an heiress, who travels back from India to London to live with her aunt & uncles and cousins. She meets two different men on t [...]

    20. Cabot writes stories about well-meaning, determined, independent heroines overcoming life's obstacles with spirit and finding love, during lots of flirting, with someone that challenges them. In other words, fluffy stories. But sometimes it's nice to read a fluffy HEA story, and Cabot never disappoints. From her fluff has quality and apparently Cabot can apply that quality to historical stories about the perils of coming out in English society after leaving British India in search of a husband a [...]

    21. A cute love story in the same vein as Heyer’s The Grand Sophie. There’s no depth or subtlety to this story, but it was refreshingly free of the misunderstandings that usually tear the love interests apart. Oh the agony! In fact, Victoria not only knows that her considerable wealth plays a part in her fiance’s proposal, but thinks it absolutely right that it would be. Even better, she’s well-informed about love affairs in general and is far from shocked when her fiancé is called a “rog [...]

    22. Ohhhhhhhhhh it got my attention TOTALLY!Victoria is just like the girl i'm. super cool, ready for action and a warmhearted person.her life grabs the readers attention that how she continuously compare her life in India and her new life in England. it's hilarious!it's a story which tell us about how Victoria makes stupid mistakes just to show her anger to other's especially Jacob Carstairs , where she is unaware of the relationship between them and the story revolves how event's happen where she [...]

    23. UGH. 2 or 3 stars. I don't hate it. At times I wanted to smack Victoria around BUT I think that's precisely the point. I did like the kissing bits because well I miss kissing.I suppose it was what it was and that's not what I normally read. It's a little sugary sweet simplistic for my tastes. But the audio was pleasant and I spent a lot of time shouting at Victoria which does make me look a bit crazy when I'm driving. So yeah we'll go with 2.5 which I round up to 3 because that's what my math te [...]

    24. I wasn't expecting anything deep or thought-provoking when I went into read this book-- which was probably why I enjoyed it so much. It was the sort of story you could imagine listening to as a bed time story-- rogues, dukes, the good looking hero, scandal, etc. It was fantastically far-fetched. A fluff piece to be read in a light-hearted mood.

    25. I read a different addition, the one with Victoria sitting on a bench w9ith a pink dress and blue silhouetted figures against varying shades of blue that make up the background. This book first sparked my interest in the Victorian period. I loved it, I just read it again like I have done many times over the years to enjoy the plot.

    26. I don't want to give it 1 starI did not like it but loathed and hated it It was sooooooooooo stupid.So it's about a girl who agrees to marry a guy in order to get the other guy jealous.alizes she does wrong rushes to the 2nd one realizes she is in love with him.expected to marry himTADA the END

    27. Not quite a fluff piece. More like dryer lint. Blah, formulaic and utterly cliché, but then again, this is a Regency romance for a target audience of 14 year olds. I like most of Meg Cabot's books, but I think I'll skip the other mini regency book she did, if this is any indication of what it will be like.

    28. These books are silly. There's no denying it. But they do have the appeal of historical romances (which I totally get) without the embarrassing sexy bits. So that's a plus. I think I enjoyed Nicola and the Viscount more, but it's pretty close.

    29. I was taken by surprise - and absolutely loved this book. It's a good thing I didn't see the cover before I did, otherwise I wouldn't have read it. It was fun, light, lovely, fluffy and I enjoyed every second of it.
