This was a new to me author and the blurb was intriguing. Unfortunately, I was not as excited as I got into the book. Yes, the characters were endearing and their plight was fair but the author did them a disservice by not giving them more of a challenge then just their thoughts, misunderstandings and wish to not hurt the other’s feelings. The only antagonist, while a vile man, did not pose enough of a struggle to truly bring them together as a couple to solidify their HEA. Yes, he was a bully and his pride had been hurt as a young man, but both Sorin and Eleanor only thought to confront his separately until the very end and that was disappointing. There were so many chances to bring them together and they were glossed over. While the constant missed chances were wearing on me, I still enjoyed the characters and will give the author another read.
This was a 3.5 star book for me.
Ellie has always adored Sorin, but even when she didn’t quite realize it, she didn’t think of him as a brother. She worked hard to become the proper lady he’d always tried to train her to be – for her sake in society- and she’s hurt when he doesn’t seem to appreciate the new womanly version of herself. If only she knew.
The story was unfolding nice, but then it seemed slow. Everything is drawn out, and I became a little antsy. Just so you know, the first kiss is literally like 80% into the book. There’s always an issue. Always something in the way. I expected that at first, and then it became bothersome. I don’t consider myself totally impatient, but the discovery was too long coming.
The writing is good, however. I liked the characters and the scenes are easy to imagine.
Lord Wincanton Sorin Latham dearest family friend and neighbor to Lady Eleanor “Ellie” Cramley have finally returned home after being away for five years. Eleanor is so glad to see Sorin and he feels happy to see Eleanor all grown up changing into a posed beautiful lady. Sorin also hides a secret an attraction to Ellie that he has tried to hide and run away from. Ellie has always loved Sorin but thinks he only sees her as the young girl and friend than as a wife and someone he could love. Will Sorin and Ellie be able to tell each other the truth about how they feel about each other before another suitor attempts to claim Ellie for his own?
I totally just loved Ellie her spirit her cleverness and despite being a lady she still knew how to knock convention and still have fun. I know that we would be the best of friends if she actually existed. Ellie was never scared to stand up for her friends or speak her mind of course when it came to telling Sorin how she actually felt she held back but in a sense I don’t really blame her. Sorin on the other hand just really annoyed me. Even though I liked him I seriously wanted to shake him and reason with him telling him look everyone knows that you love Ellie she isn’t stupid she’ll figure it out in the end. Still he did have his likable moments too. He was a good friend to Charles, Rowena, Lord Marston, Caroline and Ellie even though he would not tell Ellie how he really felt. In the end I was eventually cheering him on and hoping everything would work out for the best for him. I do hope Ms. LeFey writes Sir Reginald Farnes and Miss Anne Wheaton’s story soon because I definitely will read it. I can highly recommend this book for a wonderful historical filled with enough sexual verbal banter with a few very steamy moments but no erotica which all historical lovers that don’t want this in their romance books will be well pleased with this book by Ms. LeFey.
