An amazing story!,
This review is from: The Last Bachelor (Mass Market Paperback)
This story on the battle of the sexes during Victorian times, takes you on a wonderful rollercoaster ride. Other reviewers have done a marvellous job of reviewing this book. So, I won't do that, but, I have to give you my 5 cents worth.
I found the chemistry between the H/H was nothing short of amazing and so hot.
The sparks that fly between them, the 'dragon of decency' and the 'ladies man' causes for great laughter. There were some really funny scenes which were LOL moments. Especially when the earl has to dorn a corset and do 'womens' work, and is seen. (As you can imagine he'd rather be dead then be caught wearing that, and caught, he is) But he's made a wager and pride makes him go through it. And also his immense attraction to the heroine, which he least expected.
Remington and Antonia are such well-round characters and so brilliantly written that you experience every emotion with them.
Their road to falling in love, amongst all the choas, is what keeps you riveted to the story. At times, this book had me scoffing, laughing, and in tears. Really, really great stuff, this.
And the secondary characters, the widows, are an endearing lot of older women who lives with Antonia, with match-making on their mind. And of course, there's Remington's uncle, the charming but sometimes clueless, Sir Paddington.
This book is longer then other romance novels, but it's so darned, romantic, and so well written, that you don't care.
A great read!
