Brighter than the sun. For Auntie Susan-. So it came as no surprise when I sat down to write Brighter Than the Sun and thought to myself, Hmmm, I haven�t written a marriage of convenience story yet. But I knew that I had to be careful to put my own stamp on the story.

Brighter than the sun. They say that there are no truly original plots, after all, and that all a writer can do is tell a timeworn tale in her own style and voice. So I created Charles Wycombe, Earl of Billington, a hero I could fall in love with; Miss Eleanor Lyndon, a heroine who could be my best friend; and added a healthy dash of fun and laughter.

Brighter Than The Sun 1 Star Simply too ridiculous for words. Julia Quinn started writing her first book one month after finishing college and has been tapping away at her keyboard ever since. The hero and heroine have absolutely no chemistry, constantly bicker over nothing and suffer one accident after another - you can't even blame all of them on the villain. Hoping the Bevelstoke series will be better.

I realize this is one of Quinn's earlier books, but it's really one of her most outstanding. It's one of the better ones for this genre, thus my 4.5 star rating.

Quinn's capacity for humor and dialogue is really apparent in this book. The book started on a humorous note, and the humor was really sustained throughout the book in a number of small ways. Charles and Ellie were engaging characters. I especially liked Ellie's realism; she was independent and headstrong, and that was supported by her personal history. It was clear why she would act the way she did.

Charles was not quite a rake; there was definitely something softer about him, but he required reforming nonetheless. Prior to this, Anthony Bridgerton was my favorite Quinn hero, but I think Charles now holds that title. He was just naughty enough, just smart enough, just clever enough, just serious enough, and just fun enough - the perfect package. His problems weren't overwhelming or depressing; they were just problems, and he dealt with them.

My one problem - it was overwhelmingly predictable. I had the solutions to the few plot problems figured out long in advance of when the characters solved them. This is not to say that they weren't written well because they were - the problem is really that they were so obvious; there was very little mystery. Overlook that aspect of the story, and you still have a charming, funny, and engaging read that should stand out for this genre of writing.

It makes me truly sad to give a two star review to a book written by my favorite author, but i honestly felt discontent with this book. BRIGHTER THAN THE SUN, appears to have been written by a rookie in the genre, and not by an author who brought us wonderful stories like THE DUKE AND I, THE VISCOUNT WHO LOVED ME, AND ROMANCING MISTER BRIDGERTON. I finished the book just because it was a Julia Quinn's piece, but i have never been so disappointed with a story before. The main character, Ellie, was an annoying girl, she appeared angry through out the whole book, and Charles just never really stood out. Ellie wanted to have her way (no highway option) all the time, and Charles just wanted to have sex (plain and simple). The story line, was very dull, nothing to look forward to, also i must mention something another fellow reviewer wrote about, what is up with them getting injured in every chapter? my goodness how annoying it got.!!!!!! I love Julia's writing, i think it's superb, no wonder she is my favorite, which is why i would put this book where i may never see it again.

Greatly enjoyed this story!!
The Vicar's daughter aids a Drunken Gentleman! As he becomes acquainted with her, he realises she is the solution to his current life crisis, which one would think he would have addressed sooner. The story is very engaging as our hero and heroine wend their way to their mutual advantage. Our young lady goes from drab to fashion and plain to stunning!!
you secret
Loved it. Editing was terrible though. Not up to usual standard. Very engaging and plot was unusual. Not the regular style of balls etc

This was a recent re-read for me. I must have originally read this about ten years ago, and I happened upon the opening excerpt and was charmed into giving it a go. Julia Quinn is at her best when she's doing dry, witty banter, and that first chapter has it in spades. Unfortunately, one I got past that the book failed to deliver. I almost wish JQ would do a re-write now that she's a more seasoned writer (and for sister book Everything and the Moon as well). The premise and characters are great! They deserve a better plot and better dialogue. If this is your first time reading Brighter Than the Sun, by all means read on. But my re-read is reminding me why I decided to donate my last copy to the library.

I was looking for a book that I had read in the past and stumbled upon this one. You don't have to read the first one to enjoy this book. I did enjoy revisiting the characters in this book.

I like all her books but especially the funnier ones. I'm just not interested in swapping reviews of all the books I order. Some are gifts to friends or family or are ones I read quite a while ago by the time the review request comes up, so I don't always remember details of the book or what I thought of it.
As I said in my review of Everthing And The Moon, I did not like this story as much as Victoria's story. While Everything And The Moon fought against social norms and stereotypes, this story did the total opposite and instead made it seem like norms and hierarchical structures where indifferent. In addition, I think the emotional development wasn't as strongly created as Victoria's story - of course it wouldn't be as this is more focused on convenience rather than a struggles against all odds for true love.
