I won't go into the plot except the say that the h/H are obliged to marry due to a stipulation in the H's will. Huh? Katherine is a naive country mouse and Robert means to marry her, put her somewhere out of the way and continue on with his mistress. Of course, he falls in love with Katherine despite the fact that she has all the personality of a bowl of tapioca. But he loves her because: "she was such a forceful presence",is "an astonishing young woman", "thoughtful and kind as well as provocative and damned stubborn", "magnificent" with "her full breasts heaving in indignation as she stamped her foot". There's plenty more where than came from. Unfortunately, all Katherine does is bite her tongue -or her "plump" lower lip - when Robert is pissy to her (which is almost always), and spends most of her time either moping around because he's not paying any attention to her or anxiously wondering if she's pretty enough and whether he likes her body. I guess the reader just has to take Robert's word for it and visualize this limp dishrag as a tempestuous, formidable woman. Sorry, but that's more imagination than I can muster.
Robert, of course, had a tragic past with his mother and I can't recall all the details, but it was insufficient to turn him into a the cold-hearted whoremonger he is at the opening of the book. Of course, Katherine turns him into a silly goose by the end, but he's no more interesting.
They have sex once and then Robert gets a bug up his butt that Katherine is cheating on him, and they're sexually frustrated for the majority of the book because Robert refuses to climb back into bed with her, although there are teasing near misses which aren't really teasing, but more tiresome. After a while I didn't care if they ever got it on again.
The writing is quite good, but the plot is dull and plodding, and pretty much unbelievable. Fluffy filler going off into multiple tangents with no purpose but to keep the "lovers" apart for as long as possible.
Basics: girl is orphaned has to marry her guardian. Her character is developed well and basically everything is her point of view. Her husband's character is moody and bad guy typical, but then with nothing but fighting between them the wife falls in love, no reasoning just all of a sudden in love when it was a marriage of necessity and not love. It was a rather bizarre turn. And there is nothing to love about the husband character for the entire book aside from the fact of him being handsome.
It was written in an interesting time period and is unique in that sense but I would have liked to actually not be repulsed by the husband and her "loving him" with zero lead up or reasons.
marriage like her parents. Robert had had a troubled background in love and marriage so therefore was determined not to let Kate crawl under his skin and make him fall in love with her. Read the book to see all he does to try to keep her at a distance and just how much Kate is able to endure, or not, before her heart and her spirit are irrevocably broken. Do they ever come to their senses and resolve their differences and difficulties of their past. Due to the complexity and depth of the characters, this book really holds your interest and is a real page-turner. Ms. Andersen writes exciting Regency books that make one wish to keep reading and hope for a continuation or sequel to this novel, expanding on other characters from this story. I really enjoyed reading this book and finished it very quickly.
