The sub plot threatens Sarah and her heritage (an orphanage)and Charlie's business interests, and this is threaded throughout the story - although the culprit etc is not difficult to guess.
I enjoyed the story but give it 4 stars as I thought it a little too formulaic - seduction (excellent), rejection (questionable), threat (very 'regency'), reconciliation (good).
I would read this book again as the relationship was developed very well, and the characters were well matched and believable but I'd cheat next time and skip the plot paragraphs.
When Charlie offers for Sarah it is because he knows she will make the perfect countess. They have grown up together and although they don't know each other well he knows that she is just what he needs. However he's surprised to find that she doesn't instantly accept his proposal but instead asks for two weeks to get to know him. Charlie decides to use the time to persuade her into the marriage and goes about this with traditional wooing mixed up with sensual experience. A lot of the first section of the book is details of their kissing and more but it's well written and it gives an idea of the characters, their thoughts and how they are getting to know each other.
The second part of the book follows their early days of marriage when Charlie realises he has fallen in love with his wife but is afraid it will cause him to make bad decisions, as his father did, and so he tries to withdraw. Although whilst reading the story this makes some kind of sense, subsequently it all seems a bit unlikely.Read more ›
It was thoroughly enjoyed.
The love story was brilliant, passionate and heart warming. My husband wondered why I was in such a good mood lately and it's because of this book!!
Can't wait to get stuck into another Cynster novel!
In my opinion Stephanie ran out of steam on this one. The characters are pretty boring, you don't come across any sort of a plot until half way through the book, and by that stage i didn't really care what happened.
It is just one 'love making' scene after the next with nothing in between so i ended up skipping whole chunks, because, quite franky, it was boring.
Definitely NOT one i would recommend- which is rare!
Read a Karen Hawkins for the first time in between reading that one... definately worth a read.
