Goodness this book is just bad, I’m sorry but oh my goat. The Earl is a jackass who doesn’t listen to any reason and sticks like glue to his own presumptions and Claire, instead of being an adult and trying to talk to him, trying her hardest to prove what he thinks happen didn’t happen, she grumbles and acts like a child throwing a temper tantrum.
Then, even though this sham of a marriage is mostly her father and sisters fault, she’s still super loyal to them. Her father says sorry and that’s it? Her sister also makes me mad. I can kind of understand wanting to marry someone with a title in that time period but she is just a spoiled brat. She goes shopping with her sister and even though Claire tells her to watch it, she goes wild with her sisters husbands money. Claire could have put her foot down but she hardly even tries and then when she tells him about it, he gets angry and thinks it’s all her.
Most of the book is them basically hating each other, there’s no connection with the characters at all. There’s no getting to know the characters either, it’s just top surface stuff, it’s all just tedious and repetitive mostly. If you like these types of books, go right ahead but beware of a lot of hate and childish behavior.
It seems that after we get to the sex scenes, the author got tired of writing and just finished the story up w/a few paragraphs. Her sister got married and was pregnant, but apparently our heroine didn't attend? Just rushed at the end and doesn't make a lot of sense. I wouldn't really recommend it.
Firstly, I get that the 2 didn't want to be married but were forced into it. Not a bad starting point. Then we have Clair's sister who only wants a title and lots of money in her suitor and thinks that Clair's husband should buy her things - and Clair doesn't object to that? Then when the Earl balks - Clair thinks it is horrible that she has to go to the country? Seriously. And let's not forget the Earl who acts like a 3 year old because he is now saddled with a wife and doesn't want to get to know or understand her. The only sympathetic character is the Earl's friend who walks with a limp - and also complains that the ladies of the season don't want him because he walks with a limp??? Really? Title and money mean nothing?
Too ridiculous and I could not be bothered finishing it - although I did give it about 50% of the way through.
On top of that the book is riddled with Americanisms - in English there's no such word as 'snuck', and in Regency England it's completely inappropriate.
I've given it one star because I can't give it less than that. This author may have several books to her credit, but after this sample I have no interest in paying for one to find out.
