There were three things that were a major turn-off for me:
1. There is an extended analogy with spiders. I like bugs and nature too, but that doesn't mean I will pick up a large garden spider with my bare hand or cry if one of them dies...too weird even for me.
2. The heroine has no self-esteem and I mean ZERO. She is always doubting herself and pushing away the one man that actually notices her. It is pathetic.
3. There were two weird themes in this novel. One was "The Season's Original" and the other was the Duke of Vale's "Marriage Formula." I didn't care for the implications of either one and since they both played a major role in the story, I started to lose interest in the plot.
I think this is a situation of it's not the author, it's me. The writing style wasn't bad, it just didn't work for me and I wasn't interested in the plot devices that were used. The hero was cynical, but very observant and I actually liked him, but all the other characters and themes fell flat for me.
Lilah Appleton is stuck between a rock and a hard place. She needs to marry a man with a title or she will be forced to marry her cousin according to her father’s will, if she does not want to me disowned by her mother. Lilah has thus far been overlooked by the men of the ton because of her understated beauty. Jack Marlowe is different. He notices her. He listens to her. As he comes to know more of Lilah’s situation, he offers his help. In the process, he falls in love with her and she with him. The problem is, is that Jack Marlowe is known to be the bastard son of an earl, so is therefore untitled. They fight their feelings but in the end, they declare their love to each other and consummate it. Jack wants to marry Lilah. And she wants to marry him. They are willing to brave the elements if they do. In the end, Jack was actually conceived while his father and mother were married, so he does have the title that will fulfill the terms of the codicil. They live happily ever after.
I loved the story. Even without a known title, Jack was a powerful man who took charge of his own life. Lilah found the strength to fight for what would truly make her happy. I have reread this book several times, and will only add to that number.
