3.0 out of 5 stars Well-written, but.... April 19 2010
By Soyini - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have a problem with stories where the hero is so mean to the heroine, without any justification. He even physically assaults her but she says its okay because he was "incensed". He had no right to be incensed! He was engaged to someone else!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Amazed anyone could like a book with an attempted rape within the first 20 pages May 10 2014
By Observant - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I will endure this to the finish but almost threw it away by page 20. Using drunkenness as an excuse the "hero" such an honorable word for such a despicable man manhandles and attempts to rape the lead female character. Poorly written book overall. One sentence was hard to understand because the words were in poor order. Who was the editor?
I do not recommend this book. It's all about male domination. The female character get's horny for the male by about page 100 but the reason behind the physical attraction is sexual which the author seems to think is reason enough. Yes he can be gentle but who can forget he is essentially cruel and demanding of his own way. Don't bother with this one.
2.0 out of 5 stars A Disturbing Read May 24 2014
By Flower Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I wanted to find out why the reviews are so polarized...I now have read the book, and I'm joining the "don't like" group. I didn't like the book because I found it disturbing. For example, on page 17, Lord Raeburn when he first met Jessica, 'he demanded "Does everyone also know that you are my brother's whore?"'. What a brute! I was so shocked with the name calling at their first acquittance that I immediately questioning hero's civility. On page 29, when Raeburn commented that Jessica looked pale and has lost some weight, Jessica responded tartly "And you look bigger than ever--too big to be quite natural. Are you sure your mother didn't mate with a Minotaur or something?". This definitely was not a lady talking, not to mention she was a clergyman's daughter, maybe they are right for each other...They are both "raw".

The whole book had strong sexual attractions between the h/h, but the feelings were carnal, languages were insulting (and it was a 20th century American English, not true to the Regency period), and lack of the proprieties for the Regency era. It was a provocative read but without much of the substance. These all disturbed me and that is why I didn't like the book.
4.0 out of 5 stars First romance novel March 10 2013

This is the book that started my obsession with romantic reads. Granted I was 13 at the time, but it still holds up for this type of light read.
