Rob Carmichael is a second son who has been long shunned by his family as a black sheep (though they are black sheep and he quite white) and he has been making his living a Bow Street Runner. He is sent to collect Sarah and follows with hot pursuit, trusting both his gut and his sense to lead the way. What follows is a wonderful and daring pursuit to save said lady in distress. I enjoyed this entire part - up to where the couple make it back to England.
The story really just fell apart and became one ridiculous plot filler after another. There were several major issues with this book. One - no proper villain. The villain (and the motive) is borrowed from another story in the series and has nothing to do with the hero and heroine so there is nothing to write about for a long expanse of time, basically, until the end. So I guess the author needed plot fillers which are random and only a deus ex machina could lead one lame plot point to another.
Two - No proper plot and at least three coincidences too many. When the hero and heroine crash land from the ocean during a huge storm in the middle of the night and just so happen to land EXACTLY at his family's historic home by complete coincidence I thought.. ok... I guess I could let that go.Read more ›
Rob's character in previous books seemed very mysterious and alluring. I was looking forward to unraveling the enigma of a Lord turned dangerous Bow Street runner. While I got what I was looking for in Rob; the ridiculous coincidences, and Sarah's numerous TSTL (too stupid to live) moments overshadowed what should have been a great love story.
I'm planning to stick with the Lost Lord's series, but I don't plan on reading this one again. :/
- What 9 month pregnant woman goes out for a joyride in a curricle, magically goes into labor with blood and fluid all over her gown and still has the energy to crawl down into a crypt to avoid kidnappers? Mind you her labor was so bad that she was unconscious for 5 days after giving birth because she'd lost a great deal of blood. Yet 2 weeks after this horrendous deliver she declares herself fit enough to go off on a day's journey to visit her sister with her infant in tow. No woman would do that in modern times. In the early 1800's it was certain suicide for mother and child. Ms. Putney also showed a greater understanding of how the human body works and how dangerous medical care was then.
- There's a huge difference between the body of a woman who's given birth in the last weeks than one who's never been pregnant. Even if they are identical twins, there's no way Sarah's kidnappers would ever mistake her for the pregnant duchess Mariah.
- Just to be truly idiotic, when Mariah does visit her sister she just happens to bring along the most perfect wedding dress (The Duchess Dress" that is fashioned to fit Sarah perfectly. Ummm Mariah was heavily pregnant for months. Even if she did cart along such a thing for state occasions (Um she was visiting her sister who'd just been rescued from kidnapping so why did she think she'd be pressed to open a new school or dedicate a hospital along the way?) there's no way it would be fitted to her sister's unpregnant virginal form.Read more ›
