Really make me root for HEA Hope the next 1 will get polished Overwrought take on the sell a night with the wife for a bazillion bucks plot Barely bearable for reading in the bathroom in short takes at least for now I may abandon it I m only on p 57 as I type thisHere s an xample of the proseEach new sense of her was like brandy on an open wound Last night he d thrown off his armor shed his skin laid himself open raw and vulnerable Ad she d ripped his vitals out plunged a dagger in his heartCan you say Ack I finished it lots of skimming involved though to manage it Intricate plot after all but the writing was painful MARY BALOGH DOES THE WHOLE TOO Balogh does the whole too to mbrace happiness much better I just wanted to smack the heroine upside the head Ugh Melodramas piled on top of one another until the whole thing toppled over onto my DNF pile Angsty regency historical romance inspired by Indecent Proposal the Robert Redford movieThe Maruis of Vane has wanted Lady Sarah a married woman for many years She knows it and her wastrel husband knows it Her husband offers one night with Lady Sarah to Vane for 10000 pounds Readers who dont care for technical adultery under any circumstances should stay away from this bookThis novel is just under 300 pages there is a preview of her next book in the back hence why its listed at 320 pages and to stretch the conflict out til the HEA Wells has Sarah be a bit of a pill Unfortunately Vane is really kind patient and uite besotted not to mention well hung so Lady Sarah might come across as too unsympathetic in comparison to some readersI have no idea if this book is part of a series and Wells s website is decidedly unhelpful but I assume so since there is seuel baiting with some of Vane s friends It worked on me since I will probably read Wells s next book This was my first book by this author and overall it was pretty good not great Sensuality RGrade B Potential spoiler below the fold I don t mention anyone by name but it might help you guess as to who it is as you re readingThis one fell flat for me The romance takes place in a very short amount of time a month or so as far as I "can tell and the characters have very swift multiple changes of heart and "tell and the characters have very swift multiple changes of heart and in that brief period There really wasn t nough conflict to support a novel of this length if the hero and heroine had just sat down and had a fifteen minute conversation somewhere in the first five chapters it all would have been resolved very uicklyThe villain was also unexpected and therefore difficult to believe And The villain was one of those insane villains which is such an annoying stereotype The portrayal of people with mental illness as dangerous and murderous is so offensive and tired I far rather would have preferred a villain who was a flaming asshole rather than insane Bit of a snooze and I didn t understand the heroine s appeal Lady Sarah has been rather unhappily married to Brinsley Cole for ten years now and she s been secretly lusting after the Maruis of Vane For his part Vane has not only lusted but sort of loved Lady Sarah from afar When her. To him Vane can't resist making love to her on his own terms Nor can Sarah refuse a night of xuisite pleasure with the devastating man who haunts her dreamsBy morning Sarah's desire turns to shame and a deep fear of Vane's power to bind her Desperate she does the one th. I just finished reading it I had a hard time find sympathy for Sarah While I ll concede part of her hesitation in contacting her family was guilt and shame I still believe the majority of it was simple pride She didn t want to admit her mistakes to them and apologize which shows a lack of maturity and stubbornness that borders on stupidityI understand that basis of what the author was trying to achieve but I feel She Failed For The Most failed for the most While I give her credit for taking on such a hard character I think what should have come across as fear and guilt just seemed cold and cruel instead I m afraid I saw her only as a prideful martyr all the way through the ndIt was hard to sympathize with her as she wasI can t say I was very impressed with the book as a whole though it did have a few redeeming ualitiesI may be curious nough to read the second book Sweetest Little Sin which I have in my TBR pile however We shall see When a young reckless and strong willed seventeen year old Lady Sarah married Brinsley Cole she though it was a great and passionate "love they shared Fighting nearly tooth and nail to get what she wanted Sarah burned bridges with her family "they shared Fighting nearly tooth and nail to get what she wanted Sarah burned bridges with her family achieve her goal of marriage Unfo My Ratings Hero rating 4Heroine rating 4Steam Factor 35PlotStoryline 4Overall rating 3 The premise is promising but somehow the overall xecution is somewhat lacking Strangely for 2 people who ve longed for ach other for 7 yrs they don t seem to like ach other v much I didn t feel that angsty vibe The hero is luvly but the cold guilt ridden heroine isn t worth the pain physical mental anguish she put him thru Hard for me to comprehend what attracted hero to heroine in the 1st placeI also found it unbelievable what happened after he gave her a surprise sweet gift her own perfume making stillroom Somehow the rose Black British Cultural Studies: A Reader essence reminded her of the nite her scumbag hubby 1xpired she ran outta the room retching After comforting her hero confronted heroine her hang ups yadda yadda His gaze lowered to her mouth his lips parted Her face tilted toward his her lips tingling w anticipation When He said roughly I m not going to kiss you Gypsy World: The Silence of the Living and the Voices of the Dead etctc Here I thought darn right U re not she just puked her guts out Bile scented breath is not really conducive to a hawt kissing session Methinks sucking on a mint candy 1st before smooching would be imperative in this case 2 Another problem I have is the heroine s obsessive mission to find the Bryozoan Evolution expired hubby s bastard child the cost of the hero s luv Her presumed barren state has blinded her to thatxtent that is not an Crisis and Continuity at the Abbasid Court: Formal and Informal Politics in the Caliphate of Al-Muqtadir (295-320/908-32) endearing uality She comes across as a self serving heroine who couldn t see the real luv right in front of herThending I didn t give a hoot who actually killed heroine s hubby why also who are the real parents of the li l boy that she s been hunting for throughout the book The culprit is revealed wout any clues it gets bizarre plus the killer doesn t get their comeuppance Tons of secrets w heroine s parents former hubby s family All the bombshells just kinda get dropped in 1 big fat package Even the pilogue didn For years the Maruis of Vane has hungered for Lady Sarah from afar watching the beauty brave a disastrous marriage Then Sarah's wastrel husband makes Vane an indecent offer one night with Sarah for ten thousand pounds and the temptation is almost too greatWhen Sarah comes. Husband spies an interaction between them he views it as an opportunity for some cash and offers Vane a night with his wife for 10000 pounds He refuses the offer but when Lady Sarah shows up that night indignant because her husband had told her "It Was The Other Way "was the other way things get out of hand and they spend a passionate night together But Sarah is prideful and to protect herself then demands the 10000 pounds Vane is incensed at being used so callously and kicks her out When she returns home Sarah learns finds her husband murdered The only alibi both she and Vane have are ach other which compromises Sarah and makes a marriage of convenience necessary Vane still desires and loves Sarah ven while hating her and is willing to go through with it Sarah agrees but swears she will never be vulnerable to a man again she will never love him and will never share his bed Vane makes it a point to change her mindAs well written as this was and with a rather decent suspense plot I couldn t like this mostly because I couldn t warm up to the heroine Why Vane was in love with her I have no idea In fact the heroine doubts that it s love just as I did His interest in her was so intense so baseless so unreasonable in light of all she d done that it could only be infatuation And this well after they re married What the heroine doesn t mention is the fact that she s a bitch and that s the greatest reason I couldn t fathom why Vane would love her I think honestly in this whole book she was miserable for about 85% of it Her misery vacillated between stubborn pride which won t allow her to find happiness guilt and sheer anger She s also uite cruel And she owns up to it too She s so cruel that she allows a man to believe he had sex with her while she was unwilling after he has offered solutions to her problem gone out of his way to help her and actually agreed to marry her Even though she knows

He S Feeling Shame 
s feeling shame what he thinks he s done her stupid pride lets him believe it And she owns up to that too She would use his shame as insurance Yes she could say You frightened me You hurt me Don t ver touch me again A month ago two weeks ago she would have said that without mercy or hesitation to protect herself It was nothing less than she d done "before Hadn t she let him think she d been coerced into his bed that first night And this "Hadn t she let him think she d been coerced into his bed that first night And this just touching on the surface she spends most of her miserable time trying to make his life Going Berserk eually miserable in anffort to protect herself How am I supposed to like a person like that One of the things an author needs to do when it comes to prickly heroines is to give the reader some reason to feel sympathy for them or to glimpse some side of them that is worthy of routing for but something fell short in this one and I never once found myself routing for the heroine I wanted Vane to get over her and find soemone to make him happy I will admit though that the nding was rather nice There was appropriate grovel the heroine had to set aside her pride and fight to get Vane back But I still would have rather he found happiness with someone ls. Ing that will stop him from claiming her as his own leaving him shattered by her betrayal But neither she nor Vane dreamed their passionate ncounter would set the stage for murder and that a deadly twist of fate could spell a lifetime of regret or a love to last all time. ,
