I know there are people in this world with volatile tempers. They are usually not pleasant to be around and I would tell you that they are even less fun to read about. Such is the case of the female protagonist, Cassandra. She is impulsive, hot headed, ungrateful and at times, deceitful in addition to being willfully stubborn. She a royal pain in the backside and the 'hero's' attraction to her is hard to understand.
The best scene in the entire book is when Cassandra's aunt gives her a very detailed and deserved set down regarding her behavior. Cassandra's excuses for her behavior, while plausible, do not make up for her maddening behavior. Her on/off attraction to the hero as well as the highs and lows of her temper are dizzying. The hero, Lord Ravenscroft, or 'Ferdie' as Cassandra likes to call him is no prize either.
Bottom line: I found this book tedious and struggled to finish it. I couldn't find anything to like about any of the main characters and what plot there was wasn't terribly interesting.
Cassandra is such a strong character that you can’t help but fall in love with her almost immediately.
Maybe it is her red hair, or maybe that despite the fact that she should despise her parents for all they have done to her she still tries to help in any way she can.
Because of this, she finds herself in an unbreakable contract to be married to a despicable man. She was supposed to marry Mr. Fallone and he was going to pay all of her family’s debts and then some.
Unfortunately the contracts were drawn up and signed in haste and no one noticed that the wrong name was on them.
Arthur (Mr. Fallone) was understandably angry at this development and took things into his own hands…..will he ever be able to recover from the aftermath of his “problem solving”?
Last but not least is Rave. The man that Cassie really wants but can never have. Secrets from her past haunt her and her future is anything but bright.
Rave doesn’t know she has these secrets and pursues her any chance he gets.
Will be be able to handle the truth?
I loved it, to put it mildly.
vivd, refreshing characters, great dialogue, and plenty of fast-paced action with characters in novel situations. It' never boring!
The protagonist (Tigresse) Cassandra Seyton is a no-nonsense, intrepid, heroine, trained in the gentlemanly arts, who possesses a fine sense of honor--which gets her involved in repaying a debt of honor, murder, and even in trysts. Her uniqueness attracts the elusive Earl of Ravenswold (Rave, the Raven), one of the dashing "Four Eligibles," and causes him to pursue her, despite her efforts to elude him and avoid his discovering her "secret." Hunk Rave follows in hot pursuit despite his suspicions that she is trysting with one of his best friends.
The immediate action with great dialogue (plenty of sarcasm, wit, and innuendo) pulls the readers into this book and holds the reader throughout. The sexual tension and sizzling interactions between this tigresse and her raven will keep you, the reader, turning pages late into the night. Don't miss this one!
