Both Kristin Vayden’s writing and the story flowed beautifully. I just adored the characters and their interactions with each other. The dialogue is full of fun, witty banter that leaves you feeling connected to the characters and as if you were sitting there eavesdropping on their conversations.
I highly recommend this book – I enjoyed it so much I have already read it twice and it has only been out two days! This is the perfect book for anyone who enjoys Regency romance, magnificent banter between characters and a couple with fabulous chemistry and the makings of a great love story.
The plot line was so romantic, humorous, and entertaining, and very touching too. I loved, that the hero was instantly smitten, and that the reader got a lot of his point of view,- and his inner musings/conflicts were so funny and adorable.. I loved that the heroine was beautiful, smart and no push-over, even when she was very attracted to the hero, she refused to allow him to use her as a doormat. At times she even stopped his amorous advances, unlike most heroines, who tend to lose all pride, and perspective, basically willing to give in completely, in the middle of a crowd if need be, and it is the hero who usually, comes to his senses (I really hate that). I loved the secondary characters: the girls, and the match-making Lady. Bu above all I was over the moon, that this story was (for the most part) driven by the hero's feelings for her, not the other way around. It is so very difficult to find a romance book with this scenario!!!!!! Thus, I completely enjoyed the story, savoring every minute of my reading, and so sad to see it come to an end..
The Duke, long known for his love of women, has quite the reputation to overcome when he finds himself having fallen for someone he did not expect. Oh the trials that he will have to go thru to win the heart of she, who he has fallen for.
I love that in this book both characters find that in forgetting ones self and putting another before ones desires, you truly find who you are and the love that goes with it.
The author is not a bad writer. She does know how to tell a story although the overlong dialog does become arduous. I might try another of her books to see if it suffers the same annoyances however, if one wants to read great, romantic stories involving governesses and their employers I would highly recommend any of Deborah Hale's books. As I have unfortunately read all of hers, I was hoping this would be as satisfying. Instead I am angry at my wasted time.
There were a lot of comments made about the indecency of Charles and his lack of self control. He did seem to contradict himself but I think that showed his passion for the heroin so it didn't bother me and they were kisses. Some of the reviews lead me to believe they were more, they weren't. The books I usually read in this genre do escalate these passionate scenes so I missed that in this book. I think if I wouldn't have went in with another book already in mind I would have enjoyed it more.
