So what does our hero do after pulling her out of the smoking wreck and possibly saving her life? Does he go back to his important work for the Regent in trying to defeat Napolean? No. No, not when the sister's best friend turns out to be the most beautiful woman he has ever seen. Instead, he goes with his family to the country for a little R&R and raunchy, inappropriate for Regency era sex as in, "We really shouldn't," he says. "But you smell so good and look at all of your splendid muscles," she says. "Well, OK, I guess I can put off saving our soldiers and our country for awhile so we can have a little fun under the sheets, on top of the kitchen table, in a hunting lodge, at a lake . . .
Puhleeze! I gave up at 40%. If the British people had to rely on heroes like this to defeat Napolean, they'd all be speaking French today!
With the story of the oldest Farthingale sister complete, the only thing left to do is re-read the books, this time in chronological order.
I received a copy of the book from the author; she didn't realize I had already pre-ordered it! I love this series and these sisters.
THE STORY: Rose Farthingale, the oldest of five daughters, is saved from an explosion in her pottery workshop by Justin Emory. The brother of Rose's dearest friend, Justin is a viscount and rumor says he is almost ready to propose to a woman that his family detests. In order to save Justin from himself, Rose helps his family concoct a scheme to separate him from that woman. What Rose doesn't expect is Justin's family throwing them together at every opportunity resulting in her getting abducted along with him.
Justin, himself, has a secret. He is working for the crown wooing a woman to try and find out information on a French spy ring. His family's machinations threaten his mission but an even greater threat is Justin's own attraction to Rose.
OPINION: This book is so sweet. Rose and Justin are a cute and uncomplicated couple. These are both oldest siblings who have several younger siblings. Family is important to both of them. They both have family legacies of falling in love only once. They are simply adorable.
This is a book without intense emotional unrest. Instead, what keeps these two apart are Justin's work and the necessity of deception. While the premise of this book has certainly been done before, I liked Platt's take on the story. Rather than focusing on angst, this book focuses on Rose's continued trust in Justin despite all appearances.
There is less drama in this book, but I love sweet, uncomplicated stories sometimes too. Likeable characters, a fun premise and lots of love and family hi-jinks.
WORTH MENTIONING: I still love how Platt manages to make telling the story of these five sisters in reverse work. This is truly a series that can be read forwards and backwards.
CONNECTED BOOKS: THE VISCOUNT'S ROSE is book 5 in the Farthingale series. It can be read as a standalone as it occurs prior to the other books in the series.
STAR RATING: I give this book 4 stars.
