I realize that by Regency standards, there was no such thing as marital rape. But, while that would make an interesting novel, this book takes the position that riding roughshod over a woman is the way to make her recognize her love.
The book relates the ups and downs of their marriage .they both are beginning to like one another but won't admit it.I think things could have worked out sooner for them. Katherine could have told him about overhearing him at the ball. They also took a backward step when she was confronted with Cecile. I will leave it up to you to see if they get their HEA. This is a clean romance for people looking for that type of book
Where to begin? Heroine is likeable enough for most of the book. Heck, even the hero isn't so bad for the first 60% or so. While the hero does still sleep with is mistress before the wedding I was ok with this because hero and heroine did not have an intimate relationship and neither really felt inclined to. Mistress takes off in preparation of hero's marriage so the book is mostly about the slow relationship budding between h and H but then 'well' acquaintance tells hero something that makes hero draw conclusions that culminate into accusations of infidelity.
Heroine has and unfortunate run in with mistress orchestrated by mistress to ruin their marriage by planting seeds of doubt *at this point hero has been faithful to the marriage since they spoke their vows*
Devastated, heroine returns home only to be confronted by the hero with accusations of infidelity. They have a huge fight and their marriage becomes a winter wasteland and heroine is sent away to take care of hero's grandfather who had and accident.
In heroines absence hero applies himself to partying with his friends and even contemplates sleeping with women and ultimately goes to his mistresses house. They end up kissing for a minute before the mistress says something belittling and suspicious about the heroine. Her comes to his senses slightly and goes off to find his brother to determine if in fact the heroine is telling the truth.
He doesn't believe her until he talks to his brother and she falls bumping her head vowing not to ask him if he slept with the mistress while they were married and separated. He didn't but that's not the point is it? She didn't want to be the bitter suspicious wife incase that drove him away but had every right to know.
Overall this writer had some decent ideas about characters building then chucked it out the window by turning the heroine spineless and the hero an unfaithful idiot.
I do not recommend this book and I'm pretty peeved as I write this review
Both main characters are fleshed out, interesting and complicated. This is not a whimsical, fluffy book.
