Anne Stuart is a skillful author, but the plot was horrible.
SPOILER ALERT: The story was unbelievable. The villain/protagonist coerces Miranda Rohan into remaining with him by threatening to kill Miranda's brother and states that he is motivated by vengeance. The basis of this vengeance? Lucien's insane half sister kills herself because of a slight from one of Miranda's brothers. Lucien commissions another man to destroy Miranda's reputation by abducting and raping her and then proceeds to rape her himself at a later point in the book. Disappointingly, Stuart describes the rape as "not rape" since Miranda didn't resist since she knew she would not be able to win and would be overpowered. After another betrayal, Lucien shows scars to Miranda, and Miranda cries and forgives everything. Lucien never earned trust or respect... never works to earn love.
Ericksen sounds like a very mature narrator... maybe in her mid to late 40s or 50s... not that of a woman in her 20s.
Another great romance from Robyn Carr. I love a good romance, but I like for there to be a mystery for the reader to decipher or some sort of drama from which the characters grow. This book has all of that... It shows characters with rich character development, and also those with very immature character development -- unethical characters. This book addresses the impact of rape, date rape, adultery and betrayal, and life after those devastating events. The tone and tenor of the book is solemn and respectful. As a character... you are either in the respectful good guy/gal camp -- or not. The tone and tenor is very different from the Kresley Cole series -- paranormal with flippant sarcasm. I like both types of tones even though they are so different. I'll definitely download the next Robyn Carr book. I'm a fan.
When Preacher declares that it's ovulation day.
She's an excellent narrator and I liked her for MOST of the book. I don't like it when she speaks in Spanish because the accent is all wrong. In the future, she should get a latino actor to come in and then mimic the phrase for the audio version. Otherwise, she's one of my favorites.
Maybe Mel. She's very likable and seems like she could carry a great conversation. She respects your privacy but will be open and honest. When Jack had concerns about Mike dating his sister Bree and stated something to the effect that Mike was a dog and probably wanted to get laid, Mel responded saying that that was irrelevant. She noted that it shouldn't count against Mike if he wants to get closer to the woman he loves.
