4.5 WONDERFUL STARS
What I loved:
->That old-school plot <3
->alpha hero (a historical romance guarantee)
->likable heroine <3 I especially loved reading how she blossoms from a girl into a woman.
“my little sparrow turned into a beautiful swan.”
->laugh out loud moments :D
->endearing main/secondary characters
->how beautifully McNaught reprises the title at the end (sigh) It's her "signature."
What I didn't love:
->The hero is quick to marry the heroine after being accused of compromising her virtue. He was characterized as being cold, selfish and cynical (due to his past) but he immediately agrees to marry her... out of pity. Huh..
->The heroine was way, WAY too naive with regard to the birds and bees.
->A few parts of the story felt a bit melodramatic. To avoid spoilers, I'll just say it was the way Alexandra and Jordan meet and the way a mystery is resolved.
"Oh, he was handsome enough, she conceded reluctantly—devastatingly so, in fact, but only if one were drawn to dark, blatantly aggressive, wickedly sensual men, which she assuredly was not."
Well color me GUILTY. I am absolutely drawn to this type of hero and McNaught hit the nail right on the head with Jordan.
“He was the stuff of which young ladies’ dreams were made—tall, dark, and fatally handsome, with the devil’s own charm."
“You slay with a glance. You don’t need a sword."
"She had the mind of a scholar, the heart of an innocent, and the wit of a sage. One minute she was bold and daring enough to aim a rifle and kill a man who was trying to kill him—the next minute she was unconscious from shock because she had done it."
The girl sure had enough spunk and wisdom to balance out her innocent disposition.
“If women were forthright and blunt, we wouldn’t have been able to convince men that they are smarter, wiser, and braver than we are, when in truth you are superior to us only in the brute strength occasionally required to lift extremely heavy objects.”
