Will arrives in St. Thomas, Danish West Indies to investigate issues with his Uncle’s company. He meets Miss Eugenie Villaret while he is posing as a mere mister and sparks immediately start to fly. Assuming Eugenie is a widow, Will considers an affair with her. Eugenie is the granddaughter of a count and a viscount and wants to marry for love, like her mamma and step-papa. After a major error on Will’s part, the mistaken identities are cleared up and the two are betrothed. Will has to woo and court her; something he has NO idea how to do.
I found it endearing that even though Eugenie is not sure of Will’s affection or character, she takes his side in domestic issues. This is another first for Will--no one takes his side. The chase to wed for Will, Eugenie and their friends adds humor and an engaging charm to the story. The subplot of Eugenie’s step-papa and the villains added a brilliant layer of tension throughout the story. Ms. Quinn has created wonderful characters; fun, spirited and sometimes irreverent. Tidwell, Will’s valet, is an excellent example. He is forever worried about Will’s cravats to the determent of Will’s wellbeing, and it made me smile. Once again she has brought together a dazzling ensemble of companions as you travel through this story.
I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.
If you have ever visited the Caribbean you know there are islands with associations from the colonist times. Martinique with the French, The British Virgin Islands, St. Martin is half French and half Dutch, Jamaica to the British and so on. This mini European invasion allows the author the freedom to have many cultures mix within the story. She references through the main character William that so many settlers recreate the society they left behind, from the housing styles to servant clothes and the wardrobe nobles wear – not always appropriate for the humid climes. The heroine, Eugenie, lives in a house that is representative of the local cultures and it was interesting to hear the characters compare England to St. Thomas.
The love story between the two gets started due to a mutual interest in Nathan Wivenly’s shipping company. Nathan is presumed dead after a pirate attack and his company starts to flounder. Enter William, Nathan’s nephew who sails from England to figure out what is going on and help out his aunt. Will is looking forward to this adventure with his friend Andrew as he is being hunted and stalked by the silly misses of the ton and their marriage minded mama’s.Read more ›
I did not like the hero, Will. He is shallow, more often thinking with his lower head instead of acting like a responsible grown up, especially when he took on the challenge of his uncle's business. He relied so much on his friend Andrew, who in fact took more initiative than Will himself. I just couldn't connect with his character.
The heroine Eugenie is not bad. Her character seemed very promising. She appeared smart and innocent. Yet as the story progressed i felt like slapping her back to her senses. For someone who never even flirted unlike her friend Cecily, her head turned to mush as soon as she met the hero. I expected her to be finer than that.
The plot in general is interesting, and the setting vivid enough. But i did find that the story dragged too much at certain points. The sexual contents, though far from graphic, were very repetitive. I understand that Will and Eugenie both couldn't wait to get their underpants down, but the author really did not have to copy the scene and paste it on another setting again and again. We got the picture, but too much of the same is not exciting at all and it didn't add any substance to the story. I got bored and skimmed through all that. The author could have left out those unnecessary bedding scenes and developed the romance instead.
There were too many secondary characters, and the epilogue was stuffed with even more names to remember--characters from other books in the series. At least the book is a stand-alone, and i appreciate that. I will be checking out some other works by this author and see if they are better than this one.
