'Forever and a Day' is BOOKLIST'S TOP 10 ROMANCES OF 2012

From the Author

Dear Reader,
I love New York City.  The people are damn serious about the way they live life.  They work hard and play hard and needless to say, it got me thinking. Were the people of New York City just as hard core back in 1830 as they are now?  You better believe they were.  And those poor bastards didn't have our modern conveniences, either. Back in 1830, people were trying to pave dirt streets with gold, even though they had nothing but sweat.  So what happens when an American-Irish woman named Georgia with only coal clutched in each hand meets a British aristocrat who only ever had gold?  You get a story known as the Prince and the Pauperette.  But why stop there?  After all, there is so much more to a story than poor vs. rich.  I wanted to get down and dirty and twisted, digging into the real facets of life back in 1830, while giving you a good laugh and a good cry.  As a writer, I get to play god (bwahahaha) and the idea of a person starting over against their will has always fascinated me. So I took away the hero's memory and made him crawl back to the basics in life.  Basics he forgot to appreciate.  Basics he never thought he'd be able to return to.  And he does it all while touching the life of one very special woman who makes him realize true love is not only real but priceless.  I hope you enjoy my historical version of the Prince and the Pauper.         
Much love,
Delilah Marvelle

Skipping a summary, that's been done, so I'll jump right in.
My two star rating is based on:

1. I liked the very beginning of the book-up until the H/H just decide to get it on in an alleyway ONE DAY after knowing e/other.
2. I liked the NYC setting (I write my own romances set there, just not in this time period) and I could see there was some good research done.

Everything else doesn't deserve stars IMO. Why?
As I mentioned, Robinson (Roderick) and ummm (I forgot her name and I just read this book today) 'Heroine' don't allow the romantic tension to build for very long. We're supposed to believe that the only man she's been with was her first husband, who was 35 years older than she (Can I get an 'EW!'?) but yet she's down with some public copulation after knowing this guy she's not boarding for one day? And I use the term 'knowing' loosely as the man has amnesia!

I was so, so disappointed when that happened. 90% of my interest in the book just died. But I read on.

The book is laid out in 3 parts and they are actually segmented. I don't know- i just felt this was a little hard to swallow. Another review put it nicely- overambitious. Lady, this ain't Shakespeare you're writing.

The hero is TSTL. Anyone else think so? Here's how he thinks- *speaking to girl's stepson who is older than she is and is a KNOWN THIEF- "how are you. you ask for six dollars for 'protection'? well why not take the entire fortune in my pocket? it's not like I'll need it even though i have no idea who I am and I'm currently being boarded by a woman who is clearly poverty stricken. No, I insist you take all my money.

Georgia Emily Milton is one awesome heroine! I just loved her enthusiasm and straight forward manner. She was one strong and formidable female.

The life she led in Five Points, one of the slums of New York in 1830 America, was not easy for our heroine. But then, nothing ever came easy for this young and beautiful, but poor widow.

She was picked out of a coal bin as a teenager by her beloved Raymond who already was a father of two boys. After his death, she gets a hold of a dream of owning her own property out west, in Ohio and she's determined to save every penny, nickel and dime to do what her Raymond taught her she had a right to want: the universe.

A dream she never dreamt, and is no dream at all but a reality was the one in which she meets an attractive and wealthy man who she thinks can only see her as a "one night commodity".

This man approaches her and she finds him attractive, but the voice inside is telling her, he's not for her and he never could or would be. However, our hero would not be deterred, and slowly he gets her to smile and they both start flirting with each other and out of the blue a kid steps in and nabs Georgia's reticule. As both give chaise after the thief, our hero is waylaid and knocked unconscious by an omnibus.

Georgia is filled with guilt as she later finds out that the man is now suffering from memory loss and the only name he remembers and wants to be called is-Robinson Crusoe.

As she and the doctor that's treating him are trying to find who he is, she has no choice but to take him home to her tenement apartment.

When you come from poverty and live with it every day of your life, it becomes not only who you are but how you survive. For Georgia Milton a young widow makes her life thrive by doing tasks for others in the rugged streets of early 1800's New York. Survival is an existence but dreams are never forgotten and Georgia is determined to pursue hers. When she meets what she knows is a British aristocrat she tries to lose him knowing nothing good will come of this relationship. The circumstances that take this man from an unknown annoyance to living in her house still baffles Georgia but she is nothing if not responsible.

The man no longer knows his true name and thinks himself to be "Robinson Crusoe" which is even remotely possible. All this memory loss is due to an unfortunate accident, which Georgia feels was her fault since it occurred while he was defending her honor. There are many things she does not know but this man but Georgia believes there is a family looking for him. He is too refined and cultured to not have people that care for his existence, and want him back despite her not wanting to let him go. Georgia shows him how to survive on the streets where staying alive when the sun goes down is not as easy as it should be. "Robinson" adapts to his life with Georgia and each day finds them more than emotionally bound, as it is almost magical when they kiss.

Both Georgia and "Robinson" have dark secrets and hidden pain they keep tucked away so no one can see. They have the ability to heal and soothe the ache they both long for in a relationship but will that be allowed to happen.
