Well, this book did that and more.
Sophie's parents are estranged, mostly due to the fact that her father is a philanderer, and is not discreet about it. Sophie is determined never to marry for love, as she has seen how it hurts when it is not reciprocated - to that end, she refuses the charming rake, Patrick, and accepts his friend Braddon, who is dull & whom she is certain she will not come to love.
However, things go awry, and she ends up married to Patrick.
The story of how these two passionate people come to terms with their pasts and build a strong, loving relationship is touching, realistic and a pleasure to read about.
I read a lot of romances (about 7 a week!) and am hard to please - so many are poorly researched (when will editors cop on that the English have Autumn, not fall, streets, not blocks, and do not have closets??) the characters are 2 dimensional and you forget them two days after you finish the book, and often the plots are just plain ridiculous.
However, this book actually made me cry (very, very rare - I'm just too hard-hearted!) and I got a warm fuzzy feeling when it ended.
A superb book, and I've got the next on my shelf at the moment - I hope it's just as good, although I am a little bit nervous - Midnight Pleasures is a tough act to follow!
The characters are good - and real - and you will care about them...
and its a romance with a difference at the end... very sad - but really real life.
i like romance books - esp if they are set in the past - and this one is lush with lovely dresses and huge balls!
