Betina Krahn ´ The Last Bachelor READER

Rkly handsome Remington Carr ninth Earl of Landon was as controversial for his radical views on women's rights as he was for his decadent way of life If the rakish earl had his way all women would work for a living and marriage would be abolished He was the ultimate London bachelor and the answer to the prayers of a select group of gentlemen Antonia's matrimonial victims a This is great classic romance and my favorite by this author The historical detail of this work is really well done You actually learn a thing or two about the early suffrage movement in Victorian England and all of the different social obstacles and conventions women had to circumvent in order to gain civil rights But it doesn't turn into a history lesson either The romance is charming and the hero who starts out a bit of a misogynist really redeems himself by the end If you want a well written Victorian battle of the sexes I recommend this one And what a great title
