It was hard to believe. Here is a young girl who was engage to be married Darien but his father wanted him to marry his brother's fiancé because he is being forced to do so. In the process, he pays Ivy to break her engagement and rumors start that she is Darien's father mistress at the end we find out who spread those rumors. It is unbelievable because regardless of how much she loved him, how could she forgive her so called friend Diana (his father's mistress) and Jake. It was a bunch of twisted individuals a poor girl who was used by all of them in the middle of it all. It would seemed to me if she knew what her father put her through, Jake's father, Diana, Maddox, and Jake, she should have ran as fast as she could with or without the baby and gotten the hell out of there. She deserved better. I would like to believe in happily ever after but that is the not the case. They have too much baggage sometimes it is better to start fresh.
There was a element of mystery. What broke up the main characters engagement? How did the older brother die? Who was responsible and who fathered the baby? It took far, far, far too long for any of those questions to be answered. By the time you knew the answers, it was hard to care about them.
This is a perfect example of BAD historical fiction. The 10 year gap between the broken engagement and the reconciliation is just not believable for that time period. Then the author has a scene where the hero and heroine hear a strange noise downstairs in the daytime. The hero says it must be a raccoon breaking in. He claims that is has happened before. Racoons are not native to England. They are native to North America and are only active at night, sometimes very early morning.
Ivy is a fallen woman but only marginally and she remains true in her heart. Darien for all his flaws and his tendency to lash out remains deeply in love.
Well written with great characters, my one criticism is that after navigating a tortuous tale, the book quite abruptly ends in an ending that whilst neat and positive didn't feel quite fitting with the rest of the book. It is as though the characters at that part said ok, its all jolly hockey sticks now, lets carry on.
A pleasing departure from the usual light and frothy regency fare. More Wuthering Heights than Pride and Predjudice. The X rated opening scene is not indicative of the rest of the book.
