Lord Phillip Sandron and Lady Thalia Sandron are getting along swimmingly, newly into their marriage. They adore each other, and are enjoying the benefits of marriage… quite a bit! However, just as in any romance I’ve ever read that starts off with a married couple, trouble lies ahead! Phillip is immature and has some real growing up to do. And Thalia has not known Phillip long enough to understand the depths of his affection towards her and to be able to rest in that. This, combined with some extremely annoying interfering external sources, sets the stage for a very angsty read.
What I didn’t like:
*I have to admit to being rather shocked at reference to Thalia’s breast and the marriage bed early on in the book. I had (happily) pegged Chater as a consistent author of clean romances! Granted, there is very little in the way of details, but marital relations IS a predominant theme in the beginning of the book. So I can’t consider it a clean read.
*The angst throughout the book made me feel as though I was riding a roller coaster. Up and down. Up and down. I’ve given this book four stars because I think it deserves it, but I was unsettled for most of the book. I don’t like angst-riddled books. However…...
What I liked:
*I liked how Phillip and Tally were able to successfully navigate the challenges, and there is no BIG MISUNDERSTANDING in place from beginning to end. So there is a redeeming quality within the turmoil experienced by the characters.
*I still really love Tally, just as I did in "A Delicate Situation." (I didn’t enjoy her as much in this book as in the first one, though.)
I’d recommend this book to those who like Regency/Georgian romance novels as long as the fact that it is not quite a clean read is acceptable. I’ve now read twelve Chater books, most of which I loved. Even though "The Reformed Rake" is definitely not my favorite, I will happily keep reading Chater.
