The book had promise, but then turned into a bitchy woman being mean, ugly, and everything that is horrid about a head case woman. yes, she was raped as a child, and I don't even mind Coulter addressing the issue, but seriously?! an entire book about someone being psycho when she had been a likeable character? save it for the psych magazines, not pleasure reading
yes, I love some of her books - like Lord Harry. Fabulous book
she has a great narration style, but can't save a bad story
listening to the horrid pronunciation of the lady reading the story almost made me put it down. at times, it is very hard to understand what she is saying. it may just be her accent, but a clearer reader would have been nice.
the book is awesome, however. I highly recommend it for your next read!
The "heroin" was a sniveling, spoiled, witch of a woman from the first chapter until the next-to-lasr chapter. Can't believe I listened to the whole thing. Guess I kept thinking it would get better. Well, it didnt.
Anne Flosnik makes the story real. the novel moved along without too many sex scenes that don't add to the plot.
The author seems to think that if a male finds it charming that a Victorian generation woman likes fishing and fencing then it's okay to marry her against her wishes and rape her. Because the main male character tries to "please" her it's okay that he forces himself on her. Really! What era are we living in?
Several scenes had possibility but then it just flopped.
The author should have made the main male character find the female character's personality more of a priority and mounting her less of one. Isn't it true that we want to feel a priority because of who we are and not for what we can give?
If Julian said one more time "You belong to me" I think I was going to throw the kindle against the wall!!
I love losing myself in books of any kind
Book was good and Ann Flosnik as always did a great job. This book was s harder read as the characters specifically the heroine has a lot to over come about her past. The Hero was not very forth coming and rather arrogant about the entire situation.
All worked out in the end but it was a hard won HEA
