The Toll Gate Ð Ll MOBI #207 look like a particularly tame hand of loo Between hiding his true identity from Nell and the arrival in the neighborhood of some distinctly shady characters Captain Staple finds himself embarked on the adventure and romance of a lifetime. I wasn't sure I would like this at first because the reader has a somewhat grating voice at time but I ended up LOVING it I haven't heard about this one before and that is a shame Captain Mad Jack Staples gets lost in the rain takes shelter at a toll gate and ends up staying to solve the mystery of the missing gatekeeper not to mention staying close to the striking granddaughter of the local suire As an added delight Jack is described as being a very large man from a family of large men and women Several of his cronies refer to him as Big 'Un and there are references to him not riding certain horses because the poor beasts couldn't carry him He's not fat he's just apparently HUGE And then AND THEN his true love turns out to be a very tall ian lady who nearly swoons when he calls her Little One because no one has ever done so before I mean I just died of the adorableness of all of it download á eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ¾ Georgette Heyer

Unable to endure his stuffy cousin's engagement party than one night and tired of his mother and sister's matchmaking schemes Captain John Staple sets out for his friend's hunting box Much to his dismay he gets a late start his horse loses a shoe on the moors and he takes a wrong turn and ends up in the middle of nowhere Derbyshire in a rain storm Finding a toll gate John demands entry to the pike hoping to spend the night in the nearest town The gate is opened by a ten year old boy wet cold and afraid Ben's father the toll keeper has disappeared and Ben doesn't know where he is or when he will return John wet and tired and also intensely curious decides to spend the night until Mr Brean returns Mr Brean has not returned by morning and John always up for an adventure takes on the role of toll keeper One of his first customers is Miss Nell Stornaway the Suire's granddaughter Suddenly John's reasons for staying increase Miss Nell is not a young miss nor is she missish She's taken over the management of the estate from her ill grandfather and cares for the old man as he lays dying Now her cousin and grandfather's heir Henry and his sleazy friend Nat Coate are staying at the Manor and Nell is sure they're up to no good John wonders if Henry Stornaway's arrival has anything to do with the mysterious disappearance of the toll keeper and if so what is the connection With the help of a highwayman with a heart of gold John sets out to solve the mystery and protect Miss Nell with all his heart and body This is an unconventional novel for Heyer The hero doesn't even appear until the second page and he doesn't speak until page 6 There are kisses in the middle of the book and romance than most of her other novels I'm not complaining though I enjoy a good sweet romance The plot reads like a copycat for the first half but the last half sparkles with her usual wit and intelligence Only Heyer could create such uirky characters and infuse humor into a mystery plot John is a great hero he's an alpha hero but he's not arrogant or angry and never loses his temper Nell is one of my favorite heroines She's strong intelligent and capable of taking care of herself The romance is a bit unbelievable given the time frame it happens in but I like the couple together and think they'll suit very well Nell has just the right temperament to deal with John I adored the secondary romance which made me giggle a lot The mystery is impossible to solve and kept me turning the page far too late into the night I can't believe I hadn't read this one before because now it's one of my favoritesSecond read January 2019I enjoyed this one a whole lot the second time around The first half is a little slow but I couldn't put the book down from Chapter 10 onwards The mystery picks up and there's a whole lot of action some romance and Heyer's usual trademark uirky characters I uestion some of the violence at the end I would have left it ambiguous as to what actually happened First time readers may have a tough time with the cant but download the 1811 Dictionary of the Vulgar Tongue if you can't figure out the meaning from the context There are some fabulous new words to insult people in this novel This book would make a fabulous PBS Masterpiece Mystery miniseries
