Unfortunately, my rating dropped steadily as I read the last quarter of the book. It is almost like it was written by a completely different person. I'm not speaking of the erotic scenes, which I thought were handled very well (for the most part - see below). My main issue was with the heroine.
First of all, it seemed like she was forcing herself on the hero toward the end, not only in a kind of icky way, but also in a complete opposite way of her personality through the whole rest of the book. If the situation had been reversed, I would not have hesitated to call it the worst kind of coercion. Second of all, the heroine's internal musings clearly indicate in the first half of the book that she didn't even know what oral sex was - and then suddenly, after coercing the hero into allowing her to perform the act, she is experienced in doing so! I thought at first that she was trying to shock the hero with false bravado/experience, but then we're given her POV and her history of performing fellatio.... that is kind of a HUGE mistake. This is one of the reasons why it feels like the last quarter of the book was written by someone else.
It was a short, quick read that does not end in a very satisfying way, if you are one who prefers an HEA. It doesn't feel incomplete necessarily, but it feels like there should have been more, like it's the first part of a traditional novel. I'm guessing that the second part of the story can be found in the sequel "Tempting a Marquess at Christmas." I also would not call this a traditional romance; parts of it read closer to a chick-lit type book.
I liked the hero a lot - and I feel that the author did a great job in representing the freedoms of debauchery against the expectations of society, and the different, almost hypocritical treatment of men and women, even by those who value a life of debauchery. These are very strong points in favor of the book. I honestly feel like it would not be hard to turn this story into a 5-star read and I will definitely look for this author in the future because her writing style is exactly what I look for in my romances.
An ARC of this book was provided by the author for an honest review.
I received this book as an Advance Reader Copy and this is my honest review.
Millie accepts a proposal from someone her father wishers her to marry, George Haversham. Millie didn't want to let the family down when she accepted the marriage proposal but now after thinking about it, she knows she doesn't want to go trough with the marriage. Alastair is her cousin through marriage and not blood and also who gave her father a Dowry that has attracted George to ask her to marry him. When she approaches Alastair he reports that he can't take the money back and leaves. Alastair's Aunt Katherine asked him as a birthday gift for him to choose one of the family members to take under his wing so that he ca help them but more importantly find someone else he can be close too. Aunt Katherine worries that with Alastair rake of a lifestyle and his unwillingness to marry will leave him alone if something happens to her. Aunt Katherine sends Millie on a course to stay at Chateau Follet which in her younger days is where she meet her husband. It is also a place where different sexual situation go on. Aunt Katherine knows that Alastair is going there and we learn when Aunt Katherine has done something similar before for another couple and it ended well. Millie thinks Aunt Katherine is suggesting this as a chance to have an experience before settling down with George, who they both know will be boring.
Alastair was shocked to see Millie there and goes into protective mode and also opens his eyes to Abby.
Really enjoyed their story!
