The Gist: The hero done screwed up. Screwed up right good. And found himself jilted. Not once. But twice. By the same girl! And man that'll get under a guy's skin. It sure will. He's gonna have to do something about it, too. To protect her from ruin, of course. Nothing else. He's absolutely not falling in love with the chit. No, ma'am!
Oh, these two. Yes, Iris and Finn were a handful every which way you looked at them. And I enjoyed them thoroughly.
Finn had a hard childhood and grew into a a man who hides his emotions completely. He's proper yet cold and nothing gets to him. Or so he'd like everyone to assume. But under that indifferent exterior he's an upstanding man with a penchant for things on the naughty side and an incredibly soft heart.
And Iris is quite the lady. She's sweet, intelligent, has a daring side she keeps hidden and this girl is no wilting flower. She has a bit of steel in her and she'll be damned before she falls in line and marries this man like expected. Nope. She ain't doing it. I loved that she stood up for herself despite the consequences.
And really. They really don't suit.
But they SO do! They were quite perfect for each other and both rather similar in some ways. They put on a proper show for others and kept their true feelings tightly reigned in...until they couldn't that is.
I loved that most of the story took place at a house party. And that he spent so much of the book completely baffled by Iris and her refusal to marry him. He's a flipping Marquess for goodness sake! It was fun watching him struggle with his emotions and falling for her. And her falling right back. Their little battle of wills and time spent at the party. The romance isn't in your face romancey since most of the time they're at odds but really it was still an amazing romance that had me rooting for them.
All in all, Bradley did it once again. The lady seriously excels at giving a girl some charmingly messed up characters who give no damns and make you fall for them completely. They're nicely broken just enough to be interesting yet endearing. I call that a win.
Because I did. Really enjoyed it a lot. Iris has everything... and despite the centuries between us, I could identify with her. I didn't have everything, per se, but everything I wanted in a very real sense. But what I had that Iris didn't, at least at the beginning, was an understanding that love is always important. I was raised by people who rejected tradition in a lot of ways (and who kept a lot of tradition still). And so I really enjoyed her character's transformation as she fought against what was expected of her, what was "done," and how she overcame it all to find -- and make -- her own happily ever after. I think it has a lot of relevance today, as we're all questioning why things are done the way they are, and asking why they can't be different if we can remake the world as we want it. Plus, it's a really fun, romantic read!
Anna Bradley is a talented writer, and now that I've read and enjoyed it, I plan to read more of her writing!
