A powerfully shy girl comes up with creating a gentleman suitor, and then finds herself forging a correspondence over the years to 'prove' it to her family, and save herself having to go out in society. Only the gentleman does actually exist, and has been receiving her letters!
The humour and embarrassment of this idea won me over from the start! I really liked Madeline's shy and humble character, and what I especially like (which Tessa Dare is very good at writing), is her passion for her job - illustrating wildlife. Only in a Tessa Dare romance book would you find the heroine drawing the mating cycle of lobsters...which is very slow going when you've got to wait for the female to molt!
Logan is a very likeable character, and his motivations are clear from the start so I didn't have any problems with thinking he was selfish or unfeeling (which I think some reviewers mentioned). One thing I did have difficulty with though, was the implication that Madeline had managed to hurt him by 'killing him off'. Even if her letters had made him feel close to her, I couldn't quite buy the idea that they both 'felt' a real connection through them.
Ignoring that though, this was a really great read - full of the quirky humour I adore!
This isn't a bad book, but it was spoilt for me on the first page. The heroine, in the early 1800s, living many miles from the sea, has a tank in which she keeps lobsters. Marine tanks are the devil to maintain even with modern equipment like water filters. The salinity has to be kept correct, as well as keeping the water clean. Without access to seawater to exchange the water every few days, our heroine's lobsters are doomed to an early death.
That, plus access to ready to wear clothing about a century ahead of when it became available, greatly reduced my ability to believe in the rest of the story. Which is a shame, because the premise was an entertaining one.
I know the series is 'Castles Ever After' It just is a little too high fantasy than your usual 'Pride And Prejudice' drama!!! Did enjoy reading it but it is not one that I will probably read again. I have all her books there are many that I still read to date again and again, this one just didn't win me over as much. Oh well, you can't win them all!
It starts with letters.
Both characters are slightly emotionally damaged and it takes time for them to find their trust in each other.
Every book I have read from this author, I have enjoyed. I could not put it down. So far this is my favourite of all her work.
I don’t like leaving a book unfinished but these plot points mixed with some rather cliched writing (“His hands ranged over her curves,” is possibly a line that is in every single romance novel ever.) is leaving me rather uninspired.
Feeling some regret for wasting my money on this.
