Roderick Gideon Tremayne, the recently appointed Duke of Wentworth, never expected to find himself in New York City, tracking down a mysterious map important to his late mother. And he certainly never expected to be injured, only to wake up with no memory of who he is. But when he sees the fiery-haired beauty who's taken it upon herself to rescue him, suddenly his memory is the last thing on his mind. Georgia Milton, the young head of New York's notorious Forty Thieves, feels responsible for the man who was trying to save her bag from a thief. But she's not prepared for the fierce passion he ignites within her. When his memory begins to return, her whole world is threatened, and Roderick must choose between the life he forgot and the life he never knew existed....… (mais)

Georgia Emily Milton is one awesome heroine! I just loved her enthusiasm and straight forward manner. She was one strong and formidable female.

The life she led in Five Points, one of the slums of New York in 1830 America, was not easy for our heroine. But then, nothing ever came easy for this young and beautiful, but poor widow.

She was picked out of a coal bin as a teenager by her beloved Raymond who already was a father of two boys. After his death, she gets a hold of a dream of owning her own property out west, in Ohio and she’s determined to save every penny, nickel and dime to do what her Raymond taught her she had a right to want: the universe.

A dream she never dreamt, and is no dream at all but a reality was the one in which she meets an attractive and wealthy man who she thinks can only see her as a “one night commodity”.

This man approaches her and she finds him attractive, but the voice inside is telling her, he’s not for her and he never could or would be. However, our hero would not be deterred, and slowly he gets her to smile and they both start flirting with each other and out of the blue a kid steps in and nabs Georgia’s reticule. As both give chaise after the thief, our hero is waylaid and knocked unconscious by an omnibus.
Georgia is filled with guilt as she later finds out that the man is now suffering from memory loss and the only name he remembers and wants to be called is-Robinson Crusoe.

As she and the doctor that’s treating him are trying to find who he is, she has no choice but to take him home to her tenement apartment.

She’s aware that even with his memory loss, this man will be like a fish out of water in her world at Five Points,

I loved the scene in the hospital, in which she ‘prepares’ his clothes and ‘repairs’ his appearance for ‘her neighborhood’.

‘Robinson’ felt very protective of this young woman who selflessly gave him protection and security, when he felt most vulnerable and lost. His attraction to her was instantaneous, but he tried very hard to act a gentleman and he might have made it, if our heroine hadn’t been one force of nature! One more thing I loved from the first scene to the last was the dialogue between the two! It made me laugh out loud and cry!

Ms. Marvelle gave me a romance that was scorching hot, yet tender. The attraction and the chemistry between the two sizzled and the love scenes were very sensual and steamy. She also took me on a journey from the slums of America to the high society of London and I enjoyed every minute of it!

I am thrilled to give this book my five quills and I’ll never forget this story that takes two people who can’t be more different in every way, yet their love and passion for each other was limitless and able to bridge every obstacle thrown their way.

Are you ready for a heart wrenching, nail-biting, funny and unbelievably passionate love story? If you are, grab yourself a copy and enjoy ‘Forever and a Day’.

4.5 STARS!!! I have always enjoyed books with character that had amnesia and this book is among my top 10 favorite. First book by Marvelle but certainly not the last ( )

Forever and a Day is book one in the new series The Rumor by Delilah Marvelle.

What made me chose this book was the setting. Usually the historical books I have read are set in England, but this one was set in New York City during the 1800’s. Ok, at the end the story moves to England but most of the time the events occurred in New York City.
Even though I’m familiar with the modern city of New York I didn’t know much about its history; while reading Forever and a Day it was very obvious Mrs. Marvelle did her work with the research for her book. I really loved to see how people live during those days in NYC, I also loved to see the differences and similitudes with the England of the same era.

I had some issues connecting with Georgia, she was too crude, I know this is because of her background and where she is coming from but I prefer my heroines a bit less rough.
I liked Roderick on the beginning, I thought he was charming and interesting but when he started to change his mind every couple of pages or so my love for him also started to change.

I had a problem with their romance, I think the idea behind the amnesia and the need to live together was a good idea in theory but the way it was developed wasn’t. For me is impossible to believe that after spending a bit over a day together they are madly in love, I might believe it if they had spent a week or so together, but not this short amount of time. Also the time the spent together was nothing spectacular or mind blowing or something that would have made a radical difference in their lives.

I had another problem with the resolution of the story, the end came so fast and abrupt that I thought my book had missing pages. Also there were some subplots that were left open and without resolution. I guess (hope) Mrs. Marvelle is planing to address these in future books of this series.

My final thought: Forever and a Day is a book with a lot of potential that fell short of my expectations. But, and here comes the big “but”, even though I had some problems with the story I enjoyed reading Forever and a Day, especially the parts in which New York City is the character.
This was my first book by Mrs. Marvelle but I don’t think it will be my last, I think I’ll pick up next books of this series because I would like to see the resolution to the subplots that were left unresolved ( )

I got this book free from the goodreads giveaway page.

This is not a book I would normally choose to read but I really enjoyed it as a light fun read.

The characters are well-developed and interesting. I have always enjoyed reading about the time period this is set in, although it seems most of the time they are set in England so it was interesting to read about New York during that time instead.

Georgia was a lot of fun to read who made me laugh a number of times and was a strong woman who faced her challenges head on. Robinson was what everyone would want from a romance novel set in this time period, handsome, funny & from nobility yet not happy with that world. Together they were lovely and, at times, quite steamy.

There were parts of the book that I would have enjoyed seeing more developed, for example, Georgia's transformation into Georgiana but all-in-all definitely a good read. I will be watching for the next book in the series.

(I wavered between three and four stars on this one, but enjoyed the epilogue so much that I decided on four.) For the most part, this book seemed...uneven. A whole lot of time is spent on the beginning ("Robinson" and Georgia's time in NYC when he has no memory), two entire chapters on Roderick's time before he even got to New York (which, though interesting, seemed out of place where it was and how it was written), and then the rest of it just seemed to fly by without a whole lot of time and detail spent on it, though much of it (especially Georgia's transformation and her time with the Astors) should have made for some interesting reading. Georgia's admittance to society, their reunion, the drama of Roderick's uncle that had brought him to America in the first place, all of this was over and done with before a reader really had time to get used to it all. I would have liked to have seen Roderick show a bit more backbone throughout the story--he seemed to lose it once he remembered who he was, which was disappointing. Georgia, at least, remained strong throughout. My favorite parts by far were the beginning, where Roderick and Georgia meet on the street, and the epilogue, where they get their just desserts with a daughter who wants--of all things--an elephant. Very engaging start and finish. The middle, while it did have me turning pages, was more hit and miss throughout. I am interested to see where Marvelle will go with the next book in the series, though. ( )
