Book Description

Lady Katherine Hamilton is a free spirit—a child of nature who believes in of love at first sight. However, her dreams are derailed when she breaks into the duke’s house on a mission of mercy. She becomes embroiled in a scandal, and the perfect means for the darkly brooding duke to seek retribution for the crimes against him.

Hunter’s bitterness blinds him to her innocence, as much as her beauty blinds his reasoning. To thwart his enemies and satisfy his own passionate yearnings, he forces her to marry him. He has no idea when he uses her in his plot of revenge that she’ll be the healing force his tortured soul has been searching for. Not until she becomes the target of the murderer he’s been stalking does he admit the deep and everlasting love that sets his blood afire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Enjoyable Story May 14, 2012
By Karen D
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am the queen of the .99 cent novel or so I think. It tickles me to death to find a full length book that is very good at that price range. I have enjoyed a great many of Ms. Donnelly's book, most notably her Proper Series and this book was no exception. The only negative I have was the ending, it was almost like she was writing a 400 page book and her editor called and said, "end it now because it's going to print in 10 minutes". Other than that it was very good, their was a decent of amount of depth to the characters, descriptive scenes and a fair amount of villany to overcome. I noticed very little of the grammatical faux-pas reported by an earlier reviewer and the ones remaining did not significantly take away from the story. I am giving it 5 stars as there is no 4 1/2 stars which is where I think this book should be.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unintentionally hilarious at times April 17, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Rachel Donnelly is a new author who clearly has a lot of potential. However, she has yet to truly learn that words have power, and incorrectly-used words can prove disastrous to the mood of a story.

Poor grammar and sentence structure rendered the first few chapters difficult to read, but things went really wonky a few chapters in when our heroine, Kay, traveled to France to visit her grandmother. Kay shows her mettle in being brave enough to enter a chateau suffering from "white shudders." One cannot help wondering if this condition will prove to be contagious, and if all structures in the region will soon be trembling on their foundations.

Completely ignoring the ongoing tremors beneath her feet, Grandmere arranges for Kay to attend a masked ball. There, Kay encounters at least two men with "well-formed physics." Indeed. Well. That certainly provokes a mental image that is best not described.

To paraphrase Inigo Montoya, I ask the author, "Why do you keep using that word? I do not think it means what you think it means."

I threw in the towel when, later in the book, our Kay (while apparently channeling Humphrey Bogart) tells the Hot Guy that "..I shall always cherish Venice the most."

They had been in Vienna.

Ms. Donnelly - you do have talent. I really liked your premise for the story. I liked the characters. But please - please - find yourself a professional editor. Thank you.
