It's nicely done and I liked both Laura and Gavin immensely, but there were some moments of awkward phrasing in the book that made me think that it could have benefited greatly from a working over by a good copy editor.
'Eleanor had a frustrating tendency to forget that the maid they shared was shared between them'.
I'd have re-written this 'Eleanor's tendency to forget that their shared maid was supposed to divide her labour equally between them was intensely frustrating' or something similar. Using the word 'shared' twice in three words is repetitive and reads awkwardly.
In addition, 'snuck' is never a word that should be seen in a Regency-era romance. It's a modern Americanism and one of my pet hates to find in historicals.
This is a pleasant enough story but there is nothing extraordinary here, and the editing issues mean I can rate it no higher than 3 stars.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for review through NetGalley.
It has a simple premise, but what I admire about the book is the writing and the characters.This was well done!
Lady Laura is attending a house party with her cousin-Lady Eleanor, when she meets Lord Gavin Farris at night in the library.And as he is a popular womanizer and cad he tries to seduce her ;) Which doesn't work obviously.Laura doesn't like rakes and isn't interested in marrying for anything but love.
Gavin is exactly the opposite.After looking at his parents' failed marriage, he doesn't believe in love, and will never marry someone he could love.
He believes that those in a marriage inevitably end up being unfaithful to the other, and he doesn't want to go through the same pain as his parents did.So he wants to avoid that.
But, there is something about Laura that draws him in and he can't understand why she isn't falling for his charms.And soon it looks like he might be falling in love with her, but will he be too late to admit it?
Laura and Gavin were great main characters.Laura is quick witted, feisty and intelligent.She knows what she wants and doesn't give up on her goals easily.Gavin was also pretty sweet when he wasn't being a stubborn idiot lol!I loved how their relationship slowly progressed gradually and how Gavin and Laura fell for each other.
Laura's cousin Eleanor was a piece of work.I don't know how she tolerated her!The supporting characters were also fleshed out very well.Lord Collins was quite oblivious at times.I hope we learn more about him later.Gavin's sister-Alexa and his mother also added to the story.I hope the next book is about Alexa and Lord Collins, they would make quite an interesting pair with the scheming Eleanor between them! :D
Lady Eleanor frequently puts Laura down to build up herself. She is very self-important and goes after what she wants no matter who gets hurt or gets in her way. Laura seems to have lived her life placating Eleanor just to get along. When it comes to men, Eleanor has selected Collins as her future husband.
Farris spends the beginning of the house party pursuing Laura. He finds her interesting and witty. Although his pursuit of her was to help his friend be able to get Eleanor alone, he grows to care for Laura. But, through their friendship, he is adamant that he will never marry. Even when she becomes ill and he refuses to leave her bedside, it is obvious he cares for her, but will not let himself become attached.
Once he leaves the house party, along with Collins, Eleanor maliciously informs Laura of Collins request he keep Laura busy so Collins can pursue Eleanor. This just reinforces Laura’s knowledge of being less than a man could want. She finally gives up on the idea of marrying for love and decides to marry any eligible bachelor.
This is a sweet story of a second chance type relationship. Even Laura finally gets enough of her cousin’s horrible behavior in a big way. You will enjoy the way Farris finally comes around to realizing his past ideas were not so great. I hope to see more of the secondary characters as they were well developed in this book, too.
