Sir Charles is a wonderfully warm and sexy hero. Megs, the heroine's niece, is a scamp that I hope to see in her own story.
The heroine, Sally- I couldn't get a grip on her character and never truly felt invested in her journey. Unfortunately that lack, for me, really took away from my enjoyment of the story.
“I spent nearly ten years with a man who did his best to make me feel inadequate....“I swore I’d never do that again.”
Anger flashed in Charles’s eyes...“I’ll never do that to you.”
“No,...At least not on purpose. But eventually you’ll regret marrying your older, barren wife. And in trying to hide your disappointment with your choice, you’d hurt me more than you would if you showed it openly.”
“That’s the stupidest bloody thing I’ve ever heard.”«
Forgive my speculation. But I think the problem here was addressing such a huge issue - verbal abuse and its lingering impact- in a novella. The reader never sees any examples of what the heroine suffered, which makes it difficult for some to identify with the heroine as a victim.
If the author ever rewrites this story as a novel, I would definitely read it.
For any readers new to Anna Campbell, I would definitely recommend the other Dashing Widows books especially the first three.
Unfortunately this was just not one of the author's better works.
Sally Cowan Countess of Norwood is widowed and has decided that it is time to have some fun so she has come to town to chaperone her niece Meg. Sally’s marriage was not a good one and she has no intention of marrying again she is convinced she is way too old but when the suitor that she has decided would be great for Meg has her falling for his charms what is she to do, someone needs to make her see the truth and a few of her friends the other widows and the wonderful Meg start the ball rolling.
Sir Charles Kinglake has fallen for the beautiful Sally Cowan at first sight and ensures that he is around as much as possible but Sally seems to have her wires crossed on who he is trying to court what is he to do pounce perhaps and with a little help from Meg he has a wonderful sensual afternoon with Sally, but it doesn’t end as he planned.
This one has all the boxes ticked for a fabulous historical romance the setting, the characters I loved Charles he is so good and Sally is as well but she has been hurt before and needs to build that confidence and Charles is perfect for her. Thank you MS Campbell for another story that had me smiling and sighing.
I never felt a connection to this couple. Partly because our h thought her niece the the H would make a great couple. He thought the h knew he was courting her, what a mix up. This went on for over 2/3 of the book so how were you suppose to feel for this couple when they were confused themselves.
There is 2 sex scenes prior to marriage. Won't call it lovemaking, because no passion existed and mildly descriptive.
No real drama nor suspense. Finally near the end the h decides he can't live without him and we get an HEA, but it was to late of build up for me and I just couldn't wait until the end. One other plus, no cliffhanger. (ljb)
