Nicky - thanks so much! It sounds like there's a relatively good balance between the pain and the efforts to reconcile, which is good news (to me). Normally, this wouldn't be the kind of book that I'm drawn to, but you've made it sound so great that I really think that I'm going to have to request this one from PBS. Thank you again for all of your help! :)

weathered1, (the marriage bed)

Nicky is right on the money. His words and actions are more cruel because of the way she feels about him . She loves him very much and always has.

The confrontation scene, IMO, is one of the most anguished scene that I have read.

There is no OW in it right? It sounds so good, but if he has a mistress or something I don't want to read it.

Double D, Good news... There is NO OW! :)

I couldn't wait so that is what I did all afternoon. I read the Marriage Bed. It was very good. Definitely a keeper. Thank all of you for the recommendation. And thank goodness no OW or LOOOONG separation. :)

OMG! I cried so hard when Emma killed herself over that stupid man. I felt so sorry for her. And then when Louisa that she should do that, it was very touching. I loved Neil and I wish he had his own book when he grew up. He was so cute and I loved all his thoughts. It was very touching. Something I don't think I would normally have read even though I used to like MOC books. I liked them when there was no OW but now it seems that is the norm and I usually avoid them. Thank you for the rec.

I also read The Making of a Gentleman this weekend and while it doesn't fit this forum, it was just awesome. Almost as good a hero as Lord Ian. :}

"Almost as good as Lord Ian" tells us more!!!

Double D says:
Oh Lord Ian is my all time favorite hero at this point in time. I just love him and want one of my own someday! :}


But in the Making of a Gentleman, Armand, the H has been in a prison for 12 years since he was a young boy. His Family had either been killed or scattered in the French Revolution and he was unable to talk due to some traumatic events. All he could do was make sounds and stuff. He understood some of the words but he could not communicate. So his brother, the H of Book 1, hires a 'tutor/governess' for him to try and help him learn to speak again. She plays the pianoforte and he hears her and he comes to the room and when he touches her, he feels no pain like he feels when anyone else touches him. It is so romantic as he learns to communicate his feelings with her and talks about the 'rules', and while he may sound a little simple, he truly isn't. He is just honest and he LOVES the h so much. He was also very intelligent and highly educated before his family was destroyed. I know a lot of people don't like it when the H says "Mine" but I do, and he does it in such a way that I was almost swooning!!! :} And when they come together, neither have 'done it' before, it is very sensual and sweet. I just loved his character so much and there were times he reminded me of Ian. I don't know why, but he did. I think it was his honesty and just speaking his mind. I really loved this book. And there is a mystery running though it too of course that keeps your attention.

Not so much the first book in the series, but this one made me almost get over the ansgt I have been experiencing due to reading too much of Michelle Reid, Lynne Graham and Julia James (I really don't like Julia James books, and they need to come with a big warning for people who don't like OW at all). It was a nice break. And much needed.

Double D, "The Making of Gentleman" sounds really good. I'm going to PBS and see if I can order it. Oh, your all time favorite hero "lord Ian", which book are you talking about? Thank you for a spoiler !

The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie (Leisure Historical Romance) is one of my all time favorite books. But it is very different. I have read it like three times. You have to read it but be prepared for the unusual hero. I hope you like it. There really isn't grovelling though because both these heroes are attracted to the h and no one else from the beginning and they are honest.

I guess I am messing up by putting them here, but they are so good.

I love Ian! He is just so sweet and I reeeaaallly liked the book. So much that I was a bit disappointed by the next, I have just started The Making of a Gentleman and I can tell this is another I will really enjoy. Thanks Double D! :)

Double D says:
It is so good! I hope you enjoy it too. There will be no matching Lord Ian ever i don't think. I am waiting to see how she is going to write the two remaining brothers and how she is going to make the Duke a hero. I personally did like the sequel but not as much as the first one. Mac was hot though and loved his wife very much and of course he didn't cheat and that makes me do cartwheels when it happens. I know the word 'circus freak' may apply to me. :}

I liked Isabella and Mac but it did not have the same intensity as Ian's did for me. I did enjoy it and I am very interested in where she is going with the Duke.

Reader: I loved how he painted in that old kilt! I could picture him so clearly! And I do think he was hot!!! And very sorry for his behavior. And plus he never cheated. Never. Did I say that before? :}

I know!!!! Novel isn't it? A hero that is completely faithful even through a separation. He was just so funny too, I loved him with the baby and the end. I was cheering for him from the very start of the book. There is no question that he was sorry. Definately a swoon worthy H. Can't wait for the others....hurry up, Mrs. Ashley!!!!

Any other H like him that people can think of? I like when a story starts in the middle sort of like with Mac and Isabella. Sometimes the courtships can go on forever. I like that the characters had already established a relationship and the there was already an issue between them and one of them had to prove thier love (or grovel). Any suggestions?

Just finished The Marriage Bed and I must say that I was so surprised that the author pulled off the end! At first I was so hurt that for the h, especially the "leave me alone to regreat marring you" comment. Like the h, that was the last straw for me and was so proud of her packing! In my head I was tellling the kids to stop messing around so she can finish packing and leave the SOB. Alas, everything worked out fine. Great groveling, loved the book!

Did anyone else get the feeling that the H character completely changed though? As soon as he was trying to win her back it was like he developed this great sense of humor.

It was brutal wasn't it? I mean, how can you compete with a ghost? I felt horrible for her but was so happy when she stood up for herself. You're right though, on to uplifting grovels. :)
