This is a romance within a romance, and if that causes men to shy away from this work that would be their loss. For this is more than starry-eyed young love; this book is a journey into the heart and longings of one woman who lives her life in part via her character creation of Annie. The primary character Hel (Helen) is a successful author who has lived her life caring for others and grieves for the loss of her beloved parents, she is isolated although never really alone, she lives and loves through her characters in Regency Novels wherein the dashing Jack is her sublime idea of what a man should be.
I laughed at Hel’s initial fumbling attempts and faux-pas as she begins socializing in the real world, yet within that laughter came a short sharp sadness, as the book and the character of Hel felt so real, her innocence mixed with a hunger and a need to belong hit a vein. And in her search for perfection in an imperfect world she takes all of us by the hand and the heart and be you male or female I defy anyone to look back on their own dreams of a true and lasting love and not recognize a version of their early selves in her words.
Do I recommend this novel? Oh, yes indeed I do. Unreservedly. It left me with a tangible and lingering feeling of warmth. You only need to read it to feel it.
Do yourselves a favor, don’t miss this one.
I must admit that I am a fan of Ms McCullough, but this book was a departure from her usual genre, and so I wondered if it would be just as good. Well I can tell you now ...it did not disappoint. It is as good as Her other titles. I loved it. You get two romances, for the price of one.
Hel is an author of Historical romances, who has done extremely well. However, her personal life has come to a halt over the last five years, due to her parents' illnesses and subsequent deaths. She got over her grief by losing herself in her romantic story's.
We meet her when she is writing about ab orphan named Annette and her swashbuckling hero Jack Hel writes. The story. Stopping after each chapter to indulge in a new social life, with a mix of results. She has no idea about the current !scene' and makes several faux pas, with hilarious results. She is also looking for a hero like the ones she writes about. However, although there are plenty of men available, she is quite u equipped to tell who is the hero and who is the villain.
Does Hel find romance or retreat back into her books? Does Annie( Annette) find everlasting love?
Read the book to find out. I guarantee you will enjoy it!
Protagonist Helen McFadden is a historical romance writer and after the unfortunate demise of her two parents has become something of a recluse. The only bright light in her cupboard is that she is successful at what she does.
In love with the heroes she creates she realises she is missing out in life, and it isn’t until her friend Sandy interferes that she discovers she’s missing out on a true love relationship herself. Enter Pete Montgomery, a childhood school friend she barely remembers but seems intent on staying around Helen (Hel) as she rediscovers her life.
After being caught up in her world of fiction, Hel must learn the most important lesson – she mustn’t mix fantasy with real love.
Running parallel to Hel’s own voyage of discovery, Hel writes the final chapters to her latest romantic novel, which takes place in another century. I enjoyed the parallels of the two women – similar and yet at the same time completely different.
Very readable and recommended.
