The first half suffers mightily from a way too perfect to be true Mary Sue-heroine and the hero's obsession for his first late wife which grated mightily on my nerves. Nothing against a hero who values his first marriage but a man who still grieves his wife after nine long years so much that he basically shuts himself off from the world and even has hot fantasies about said wife and not about the heroine is hardly romance novel material. Besides his initial reaction to the heroine as the new governess for his daughter is very negative and they hardly keep company with each other, Tasia even takes meals with the servants. To make it worse in the first half of the book the hero is not only still in love with his late wife, he's also very much sexually involved with a mistress.
Thus the social interaction (not to mention the romantic interaction which is completely non-existent) with the heroine remains so sparse that Luke's revelation of undying love for Tasia comes utterly out of the blue especially since his sexual attraction to the very vulnerable Tasia had a twisted and cruel edge until that revelation which suddenly turns him from the brutal would-be despoiler of fragile child-women into a tender and protective lover.Read more ›
First of all, I really didn't care much for Tasia or Luke. Tasia is touted as being very religious and sheltered. Yet she lets Luke into her bed just a little to easily (they aren't married) and then he has to fight her tooth and nail to get her to marry him. She ddoes a lot of other things that contradict her basic personality too. Luke is the standard issue Mr. Noncommitment arrogant nobleman. The only thing that makes him diffirent from every other arrogant nobleman is that he is an amputee (missing his left hand)
My Favorite character was Emma, the sweet natured, awkard daughter of Luke and his first wife. That is how lack-luster the main couple is.
Their relationship happens way to fast. Luke and Tasia maybe have one honest conversation between them where they aren't shouting and really bonding and suddenly they're in love and sleeping together. The rest of the time, Tasia is argueing with him or trying to guard her secrets. And an EVIL MISTRESS(TM) is thrown in there for extra measure.
Eventually Tasia finds herself back in Russian costody, and Luke must find the real killer. I finished this book but I was so bored by the end, I really can't remember how the day is saved.

Good story fun to read with good characters. A little heavy on the sex though I thought. It seemed like she used it to stretch out the book a bit longer. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Happylakedreamer
