Damien Drummond has been wronged horribly by the owner and son of Kirkwood Estate. He has waited for years to exact his revenge. He rides onto the grounds with paperwork proving he is the new owner.
Georgina has been living on the estate for years. She is the poor relative and she is also the estate agent barely keeping the place operating thanks to her cousin Mile’s proliferate gambling. She is simply stunned when Damien takes over the manor. Miles has lost the estate in a wager and now she, Miles, her Aunt Augusta and her cousin Portia are relegated to the Estate manager’s home (plenty of irony there) until they are formally evicted.
Damien is a troubled man who can be incredibly arrogant and unfeeling. I did not like him much. His past is well described and actually I found the forays into his earlier life to be some of the best part of this novel. This is a man who experienced many traumas as a boy.
Georgina is just too naïve for her own good. She is a doormat to her selfish family, what is worse, she knows it. She only seems to have any backbone with the hero; she collapses like a bad soufflé to the whims of her family. Georgina will debase herself to all kinds of levels for her mean spirited aunt. All of Georgina’s family (with the possible exception of Portia) is somewhat dense. They just cannot believe they have been evicted, even when they are thrown out of the main house. It is almost as if legal proceedings and reality mean nothing to them.
I did not feel a connection between the leads because it felt so forced. Damien has all the power and Georgina barely has choices. Their interactions and feelings were steeped in coercion and sometimes out and out dishonesty.
The romance between Portia and Damien’s friend Kit was more balanced and at least had a feeling of romance. Kit is ten times nobler than Damien. From the beginning, I liked him.
The dialogue in this novel was way too modern. Both Portia and Georgina say they would slit their wrists rather than be with their romantic counterparts, a couple of times I saw characters tell others to stuff it or to dream big. There was some strange thinking going on too. Miles is fourteen years older than his fiancé and Georgina seemed to think it was a bad match because Miles could be his finance’s father, really that would take a pretty precocious fourteen year old.
I lost complete interest in the lead couple, they were not admirable; Damien is heartless and Georgina is completely nonassertive with her family. She is loyal to the point of martyrdom which might have been laudable if the people she was sacrificing for were decent human beings. Worse yet, the lead’s relationship does not feel romantic (courtship is absent here) especially on Damien’s part. The only bright spots in this story are the scenes with Portia and Kit who fell in love.
