The Key.... To A Bloody Good Read,
This review is from: The Key (Mass Market Paperback)
This book was given to me by a friend who thinks my addiction to historical romance simply hilarious, and always endeavours to make her derision know by buying me the books that have the cheesiest covers (think Hint Of Heather) Anyway the last laugh was on her as I spent the a whole day ignoring her as I was so wrapped up in the book. I was initially annoyed when i read this as the cover is misleading and the characters dont look like the ones on the front(thank goodness)
Anyway, I was initially put off by said cover and the book spent a good two weeks lounging by my shelf, until I decided to (finally) pick it up, I was hooked immediatly, I completely forgot to eat for the whole day as is often the case when i find a good book! I digress... Iliana is just the perfect heroine, strong and kind natured, with a little bit of a wily streak, (think flying soup cauldrons) who stands up for what she believes in. And in this book, she believes in cleanliness, (well not a hovel anyway) and brings this around in everyway she can. Unfortunatly, one area where she seems to fail, is her new husband, Duncan Dunbar. who smells like a pig and acts like a tramp, so she retaliates in the only method concievable... A chastity belt, (yes my eyebrows shot up at this point too) which brings about some very amusing escapades. Anyway, too say much more would give away the plot, but I do hope you enjoy this wonderful romp of a novel.
