First of all, yes the hero does rape the heroine in this (more than once). If that is a trigger for you, then this is not the book for you.

Some may prefer to call it a "forced seduction" because the heroine always ultimately succumbs and finds pleasure in it. THIS IS A KINK. If you enjoy this sort of story it does not mean you wish to be raped in real life. Rape fantasy is a common thing and romance novels are just that - fantasy. Let's not shame one another for our kinks.

Anyway, if the captor/captive genre is your thing, this is a book you should read. Rolfe is an alpha, but unlike many in the genre, he feels remorse/self-hatred for the position he has put Angeline in, and does not get angry at Angeline for not initiating sex. It makes me angry when these guys have the nerve to pout and storm around because the respectable virgin they captured and raped is not falling all over them. He is also not unreasonably distrusting of her. He doesn't trust her not to escape at first (duh), but he doesn't blame her for an attempt and act like the wronged party and doesn't suspect her of constantly trying to have sex with every man that walks by. THAT infuriates me too and is all too common in the genre.

Angeline is a practical, sensible girl. She does not pitch ridiculous fits or act "feisty" just for the sake of it (another pet peeve). She is no shrinking violet, however. The story is told strictly from Angeline's point of view, which for some may be an issue. It is nice to know the hero's thoughts. Yet, in this case, I think the reader gets a pretty good view of them through her eyes. Ironically her interpretation of his words/actions is often different than what the reader will get.

There aren't many words to describe this book. It had the makings of a great story which quickly degraded to kidnapping and rape of the heroine by the 'hero'. These rape scenes were described in meticulous detail, all with the heroine succumbing to the charms and wiles of the hero. And of course, she 'falls' for him. All I could think of was this writer had a major bondage issue and fantasized about rape as an exciting way to spice up a boring love life. I'm sorry ladies, but there is nothing spicy, exciting or fulfilling about rape.

I searched through the story and it seems that each encounter between every man and woman began with rape. Rape of young women, rape of elderly matrons, the holding of women in brothels...it defies description.

I'm sorry, I won't be reading any of this author's other works. Rape is rape and it should not be enshrined in a romance story.

Only made it to Chapter 4 or 5 when the heroine seemed to have no emotional response to having been raped the night before. No thank you. It was also completely ridiculous that the heroine would experience orgasm during said rape. What is so sick here is the 'hero' discovered she was a virgin and continued with the sexual act. Unforgivable.
Maybe he went on the redeem himself ... from being a rapist?!!
Awful.

I wish I had read some of the low reviews before I bought this book. I'm astonished that a book about a woman being raped would be considered an enjoyable read. I got to the second rape and couldn't finish this book after that. The book review describes the hero as charming. He was stupid!

I really really tried to like this book, give it a chance despite the negative reviews about it. It was going great, until the heroine gets raped by the hero. And just accepts it as fate. No fight or anger or anything. Just shrugs it off and let's him do it again and again and again. I personally stopped reading it after the second time it happened. I just could stomach it.

If you're into that kind of stuff, then this is the book for you. If you're not, then I suggest you move on.

That being said, the plot was not too bad and the writing of the author was decent as well. I may try to read another of her books that doesn't involve raping the heroine.

Wish I had read some of the reviews before I read it. My mom picked this book up for $.10 at a garage sale so even though I prefer regency romances I thought I'd give it a go. The book has an excellent plot and has promise if there didn't have to be so many rape scenes. Some might uses the term "forced seduction" but I just call it rape. Its so twisted that our heroine ends up falling our him through their search of her cousin Claire. She is brave and without a doubt smart but doesn't have a mean bone to the point where she helps nurse another man which also tried to rape her! Sometimes I didn't know to cheer her on or slap her silly. As our hero and heroine start to fall for one another in the back of my mind I was thinking," BUT HE RAPED YOU!!!" It would have been far more enjoyable if that didn't keep popping up. Sorry but in my romances rape is not included!

I don't get it. A Royal Prince mistakes and innocent young women Angeline Fortin for her cousin Claire de Buys. He proceeds to kidnap her and rape her multiple time. She defends and protects her cousin who has obviously something to do with the murder of a Prince an future King Maximilian of Ruthenia. How do you fall in love with your rapist? Talking about a case of Stockholm Syndrome!! The story takes place in a French Parish of Louisiana during slavery. I am so Disgusted!! the heroine was stupid an a bit slow on the uptake if you ask me. She was set up by her Aunt Madame de Buy and her Cousin Claire. It talks Angeline forever to figure it out. The hero Prince Rolfe is disgusting arrogant rapist. Yeah your brother was murder, which I normally would have felt sorry for Prince Rolfe but this character was unhinged at best!! Prince or No Prince. Don't pay for this book. Its not worth it. If you want to read it wait for it to be free again. Zero Stars!!
