Jackson, Lord Sayres, and Lady Gwen Rees are two unique souls who march to their own drum. Where he is charismatic and creative, she is intricate and introspective. The tenderness in the way which Jackson treats Gwen tore at my heartstrings. He was so patient, trying to understand and adapt to her needs. He was kind and gentle in their burgeoning passion. Gwen’s inquisitive nature toward Jackson was endearing. At first glance, the couple seemed so mismatched, yet they complimented each other perfectly.
Jackson has fought and clawed for everything he has against a formidable for who wants to keep him under her thumb. He can see through the deception and find the truth. I loved his strength of character and his sixth sense of what Gwen needed. I fell in love with his nobility of spirit.
I cannot put into words how much I related to and was encouraged by Gwen. She was seen as an oddball and different. She reasoned a little differently than others. She had a hard time picking up social cues. She was brilliant and held great passion yet was dismissed by the ton and her very own family. I could feel Gwen’s intensity and cleverness. I cried with understanding when the world was cruel to her. Gwen was a kindred spirit to me. The character conveyed how tragic it can be when we look at the world a little differently. The character’s true beauty, both inside and out, was shown brilliantly.
The love story was epic. It was sweeping and all-encompassing. The plot was intricate, yet it clipped along at a robust pace. The villain was three-dimensional and very dislikable. I thought it a unique twist, making her a smart, manipulative woman in a world dominated by men. All the characters were strong, even the secondary friends and family members. The heart of the story was two lonely people in search of completion. They thought the completion monetary but found something much dearer. Jackson’s and Gwen’s story was passionate and organic. It flows smoothly off the page. I cheered for this couple and their happily ever after.
The author captured a unique, compelling love story. It had beautiful dialogue, compelling characters, and a captivating plot. It just might be my favorite book so far this year! Such a fresh, unique outlook on a classic love story!
Another couple, the h's half sister and the H's best friend make a connection near the beginning of the story (off page). Then not mentioned until the ending. I really liked the 1/2 sister and her sweet attitude and figuring the next story will be about her. Another lose end, how did the h get her dowry when her brother was so against releasing it? Why did the h/H wait a year to marry, when he wanted to marry right away? The H's father was another character that cause the couple grief, but wasn't mentioned how he reacted when their plans worked.
I liked both the H/h and for me they worked. The h was smart but awkward but with the H's help she wasn't afraid to be around people.
There is lovemaking outside of marriage that made me laugh at the h's response in learning - heat level 3.5 out of 5.
No cheating, no cliffhanger for our couple, HEA, some romance and steam. The story line is unique but became repetitive. Some typ0's but you could figure it out. This is book 2 of the series and is a stand alone. I did enjoy book 1 more. (ljb)
Jackson had managed to accumulate his own funds, as he investigated earning opportunities for one, Lady Isabelle. But she tried to manage his entire life and he was trying to disengage himself from her.
But she was having none of it!
Lady Gwen's mother had just deemed her "on the shelf", now that she had just turned eight and twenty and had resisted all of mother's matchmaking machinations through the years. But suddenly Gwen thought she might indeed want to marry and have children.
But being an intelligent, bluestocking often had it's drawbacks, until she met Lord Satyr and they came up with a scheme to make money! It looked though as there may be possibilities as there was a definite attraction. Could it be? Loved this story and cannot wait for more in this series!
Jackson has a rough reputation and he has been a rake, but he is truly a caring, kind, and thoughtful man. Gwen is intelligent, thoughtful, and independent. Thanks to her harpy of a mother, she lacks the esteem to go with her wonderful those characteristics. Jackson sees and appreciates her as she is. Jackson and Gwen have an interesting and heartwarming story. There is some drama, a little suspense, a villain bent on revenge, and a wonderful steamy romance. An enjoyable read.
I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. My review is voluntary.
Jackson is needing to make enough money to get out from Lady Isabelle influence.
After several conversations Jackson decides that his asset is in daffodils. He remembers his mother having a garden full of them. Lady Gwen is a very smart lady. She enjoys botany and understands it. Jackson needs her knowledge to make a go with his adventure.
I would recommend this book to see what happens!
