    Series: The Worthingtons #6Publication Date: 2/26/19Number of Pages: 3204.5 Stars rounded up to 5WOW! There is a lot packed into this excellent, well-written, historically accurate book. I see discussions on the internet about an author not being able to make a book historically accurate and still have an interesting historical romance for today’s reader. Well, this author has done that, so maybe those others should just take lessons from Ms. Q...

    This book tells a story of Lady Augusta, who, before she gets married, wants to attend the University. Unfortunately do pursue her dream she would have to move to Italy and fight many obstacles on her way. What if one of those obstacles is her own heart?Unfortunately I do not have good news- I think I might have called this book the most boring book of February 2019. 80% in and there was still no action, no element of surprise and reader, or in t...

    Lady Augusta is a polymath with an insatiable curiosity for learning languages. Having sought out tutors to teach her everything she can, she hankers to attend university, which really wasn’t an option for women in the Regency era, at least not in England. Having done her research and used her connections as an earl’s sister, Augusta might, just might, be able to get admitted to university in Padua, Italy… if she can avoid her mother’s de...

    I’ve enjoyed other books in the series by this author, and while Lady Augusta and Phin was a fun pair to read about I didn't feel the romance took center stage. That said, I did liked the fact that they travel part of the continent, giving us another glimpse of life besides England at the time. Normally it wouldn’t bother me but for some reason the fact that we get to revisit the lives of ALL characters from previous books in the series did p...

    This book was fun. It was also INCREDIBLY slow burn. While a slow burn can be nice, this took a bit too long for my tastes. That said, I absolutely LOVED the main character and how the characters fell in love for each others brains before their bodies.

    Believe in Me is Book 6 in The Worthington series and works well as a stand alone. There are a lot of characters that the reader might not know but this isn't a deterrent to Phinn and Augusta's story. Lady Augusta is in love with learning. She knows several languages, and longs to study at university, something not available to women except at one university in Italy. She convinces most of her family to allow her to study, but only after one more...

    Believe in Me by Ella Quinn is book 6 in The Worthingtons Series. This is the story of Lady Augusta Vivers and Lord Phineas Carter-Wood. I have read (and Loved!) the other books in this series, but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. We do get to catch up with some of the previous characters so that is always a bonus to any book. Augusta has her mind set on continuing her studies and wants to attend one of the few colle...

    Polyglot Heroine 3.5*. The heroine is a bluestocking (an educated, intelligent woman) but that fact is concealed from the ton lest she ruin her marriage prospects. Not sure why this would be the case as 1) she doesn’t want to marry this season as she wants to study in Padua (a university chosen because it once accepted a woman) and 2) she would never be happy with any man who didn’t embrace her intellect, so what would be the point of conceal...

    3.5 stars, 3.5 starsI have enjoyed the previous stories that I’ve read in this series but this one was just too slow paced at the beginning for me. I did enjoy it from half way through and found it fascinating to read how people with money travelled across Europe. Augusta was an extremely intelligent lady and Phineas was able to appreciate her knowledge and brilliant mind. He was an exception to most of the gentlemen of this age, in that he enc...

    I really like a heroine who knows her own mind, and luckily, Regency romance provides me with a fair few young ladies with interests outside catching a husband…Believe in Me is the fourth book in this series, but as with most historical romance, you don’t really need to read them in any order, as each story is fairly self-contained. This is the story of Augusta, a woman who loves learning, especially geography, and who is determined not to be...

    This is one to really make you think of how far society has progressed in the last 100 years or so . It’s astonishing really that women still were not allowed to have a University education , and that social strictures were so tight , All because women were believed to be less able to learn or weaker . Ella has written a really great book , the descriptions are excellent and so vivid , from the coaches to the countryside, to the castles and yac...

    I loved this latest novel in the Worthington series. You don’t have to have read the books in order or to have read them all to enjoy this delightfully unique family. Each person has his or her own personality and yet they work together as a supportive whole.When Lady Augusta Vivers states her intention to be admitted to and to graduate from the University in Padua, her family is a little surprised. Her intelligence and quest for knowledge has ...

    **I received a ARC through the publisher on NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**This was the first book in the series that I read, but I don't think that took away from my enjoyment of the story. Overall, I did enjoy this book. Augusta and Phinn are good leading characters and their relationship and interest in one another is believable. However, I tired of hearing how every eligible male to meet her ends up wanting to marry her – the p...

    This was my first book by this author and it really doesn’t read well as a stand-alone. There were many Worthingtons in the book and it was confusing to me who everyone was and there were also lots of inside jokes such as a marriage list and why everyone owned a Great Dane and a Chartreux cat. Plus, I never really warmed up to Augusta. She is brilliant and a polyglot (speaks many languages) which I thought was very interesting. When Phinn meets...

    This was my first read of Ella Quinn’s work, and I do loved it.It is not a read to be rushed, everything is to be savored, from the details of the landscapes, the customs and traditions, the different ways of traveling and the smooth progression of the romance.Lady Augusta Vivers is one really unusual woman, she drove her way in life only to acquire more and more knowledge, thus why she now wants to attend college, but only very few universitie...

    I received this novel from net galley and the publisher. Thank you!I have read several novels by Ms. Quinn and her Worthington's saga and have enjoyed them. She does not disappoint in this next novel. Lady Augusta Vivers is very intelligent and knows several languages.

    I received an ARC of this book to read through NetGalley in exchange for a fair review. Believe in me by Ella Quinn is book 6 in her Worthingtons Series. You could read it as a stand-alone however I have enjoyed reading the other books in the series and characters from those books figure prominently in this one as it is a book about family. The story is story the friends to lovers trope with quite a bit of behind the scenes meddling by the family...

    Let me begin by saying that although this is book number six in the Worthington series, you don't need to have read the prior novels in order to understand this one. Having done so may increase your enjoyment in seeing some of the other characters make an appearance, but it is really not necessary. Once again, the author manages to put together a well written and well researched novel, that is somehow once again, diminished by the Heroine. Don't ...

    I've just finished reading this book and I feel like I've just traveled through Europe without even leaving my chair! Not only is this an historical romance, it's also jam packed with sights I'd love to see in person, as well as restaurants/cafes I would love to visit!! Lady Augusta Vivers is one smart lady, in fact I'd say she's a genius and all she wants is to be able to attend university in Italy. Lord Phineas Carter-Wood is in search of a wif...

    This book tells the story of Lady Augusta Withers, the Worthington who spends her time learning as much as she can about languages and geography. Her mother worries about how such a learned lady will find a husband, but even with this concern she forces Augusta to undergo a season, rather than heading directly for university in Italy. Augusta is sure she won’t find a man who interests her until she meets Phineas Carter Wood, a man who is focuse...

    There is a perfect match and there is a solution to all of your dreams you just have to work to find a solution. For Lady Augusta Vivers and Lord Phineas Carter-Wood it just takes time and travel. Throw in a little danger and the Worthingtons and you have the basis for this story. I did love how Augusta hated the restrictions placed on women and how she opened Phineas' eyes to the things that made her resistant to marriage. Phineas was a very goo...
