My major problem with Patience is the love scenes -you can't get away from them. Well, you know that there won't be vanilla sex here. But BDSM? OK, I can open my mind up to some domination and submission. And let me tell you -You think Passion was smoking? Honey, you ain't seen nothing yet! It was shocking, titilating, and frankly educational (do NOT read this book in public! *blushing furiously*)! Seriously this a new flavor to anyone not familiar with submissive sex. BUT sadly there was waaay tooo much of it!!!Read more ›
I did not buy or believe the "love" they felt for each other it seems as though Lisa tacked that in every other minute to make you believe it because you read it as oppose to us feeling it. IMO I believed that Matthew used Patience to get through all that he was dealing with and not because he loved her. The whole dominance thing was annoying and did not make any sense, all the talk about him "knowing" Patience and what she wanted was lame...and as far as everyone saying the sex was constant...it was page after page of oral stimulation for both him and her, and not in an endearing or loving way. They did not have actual intercourse or f*** in their case until later down in the book, around page 300 then all the love and happiness followed...sort of! I found him to be abrupt and hard, she was timid and stupid acting...whatever he told her she accepted, and went along with, like she had no mind of her own!! It drove me batty reading this after waiting so long for it to be published.
I did not believe the "love" they professed in the least and every time he took the dominant role and made her do something that was for her own good...it was not tasteful, it seemed deeming! There is a part in the book that disturbed me...it was when they were in the cabin stranded by the storm, Matthew stimulated Patience to a fever pitch and denied her a release as usual...he liked to prolong her desire; he had a leash on her and when he did allow her to reach her pinnacle of pleasure it was by letting her hump his foot (which was still in his leather boots) like a dog in heat!!!Read more ›
An incomparable beauty, Patience Emmalina Dare is coveted by all the male members of the ton. As they preen, peck and squawk their candidacy as potential suitors, they know not that their efforts fall upon deaf ears for Patience has no desire to belong to any man. Instead, her heart - her everything - belongs to her cello and the music she persuades from its strings for you see, her instrument could never forsake her, can never ever leave her thus providing the perfect guard against any who contrive to poach upon her love. However, despite Patience's instrumental guard, she also recognizes a deep-seeded yearning for one man that has the very real potential to obliterate all that she is but the secrets he dangles before her are utter temptation and they have her leaping for a glimpse of the freedom he offers.
Matthew Morgan Hawkmore, formally the second son of an earl but now a known bastard and recent social pariah of the ton, is grasping with white knuckles to the remaining pieces of his former life that he can still call his own. But there are those that would glory at seeing his financial demise and none is more hungry for that than Archibald Benchley - the Earl of Benchley and Matthew's would be father-in-law if news of his bastard birth had never made light.Read more ›
