On A Night Like This
The sparks between Aiden and Sara have been smoldering since they were teenagers. Sara is afraid to take another chance on a man who broke her heart, and Aiden knows better than anyone how dangerous an intense fire can be. Check out this, the twelfth the Callaways series and all of Barbara Freethy's work

Book Description

Following the murder of Alexandre Thalo, the most powerful and prominent man in a small English village, Edward Thalo finds himself suddenly desperate to find himself a wife to produce heirs for his large family fortune. When a poor village farmer offers his pretty young daughter, Edward seizes the opportunity for marriage, fearing that he may otherwise leave the Thalo family fortune unclaimed.

Elizabeth Savage is reluctant to marry Edward Thalo, especially after she happens upon a gorgeous young servant by the name of Joel Barrett, who cannot resist the urge to court her, even after her marriage to Edward Thalo.

A romance filled with suspense, secrets, and treachery; The Dowry details the lives of Edward Thalo, Elizabeth Savage and her two sisters, and the servants of Edward Thalo, William and Joel. Each one of them holds a deep secret that threatens to destroy the lives of their makeshift family in a time where they are controlled by the mentally unstable, money hungry mongrel, Edward Thalo.

1.0 out of 5 stars Almost didn't finish this one....*Spoilers* April 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I do believe this was the most dysfunctional group of people I have ever read about. They were constantly hissing, snarling and shrieking at one another.

The alleged hero did a lot of whining and whimpering and was basically a coward.
The heroine was not too bad...a bit wishy washy though. She was described as having golden blonde hair and emerald green eyes,,,then she was said to have sandy blonde hair and glowing sapphire eyes and at bedtime she wore pajamas.

This story takes place in 1847, yet the speech is modern day.
The h(Elizabeth) is forced to marry the bad guy(Edward)The marriage takes place on the same day that they meet for the first time.

Edward tells her on their wedding night that he is holding a ball the following evening to celebrate the marriage. Say what????

When were the invitations sent...don't know.
This manor has 2 menservants. That is it. No maids, housekeeper, cook, etc.
These 2 guys do the marketing,cooking,serving and cleaning plus take care of the stables. Oh yeah, they even had time to decorate for the ball.

All of this work and our hero(he is one of the servants) still has time to walk in the gardens every evening with the heroine.

There were some loose ends left hanging at the end of the story. Where did the sister Caroline run off to?? And what was done about the 2 dead bodies in the forest??

To add to the torture of this book was the enormous amount of typos, wrong word usages and grammatical errors.
I am so glad I got this when it was offered as a freebie. Would have been highly upset if I had paid for it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Poor April 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
When I started reading this it seemed interesting. A man wth three daughters and a dying wife is driven to murdering a man and stealing his jewels in order to provide a dowry for his eldest daughter. The twist is that the man he murdered happens to be the father of the man he is trying to marry his daughter off to. However, I never got past the first half of the book because of the large amount of typos, wrong word usages and grammatical errors. It's such a shame because it made reading this book untolerable. It's too frustrating and pulls you out of the story and gets you focusing on the technical side of the story and what the author really meant to say.

A word of constructive criticism to the author: get a decent editor. You're not doing your story any justice by making it so hard to read.
