    3 1 2, really, and it d be a good solid 4 if the sex scene wasn t quite so rapey I ve read worse, it was relatively minor on the ick scale Sort of a we re going to have sex whether you like it or not moment there was no point at which she didn t like it, or feigned resistance or anything So only a little awkward But I liked how the hero and heroine were all pragmatic, and I always like when the girl p

    I was hoping for an angsty spinster romance and ended up with a weird beta hero raping a confused heroine who had no dimensions And the sister was just not a believable character, and the heroine an idiot for constantly enabling her I didn t feel any chemistry between the characters, and no real angst despite the set up 1.5 stars

    The two people seemed like a fairly likeable couple, but the misunderstandings were somewhat silly The adventure they embarked on seemed a lot of fun, actually, and they appeared to really want to get to know each other that s why the misunderstandings seemed a bit trite I realize a lot has been said in other reviews about the initial sexual interlude, so I ll just draw attention to one point Drusilla s inner

    Well I just finished and I feel like I have whiplash The ending was ridiculously abrupt I was waiting for a gradual conclusion but it was just like BAM The rest of the story was entertaining Nothing particularly deep especially the developing relationship between Drusilla and John they talked but it was too shallow for a believable relationship Dru had glimpses of being a strong character but she was so naive, it was hard to

    One thing I have wished to seeoften in historical romances is plots where the man didn t have all the wealth and power Well, here is one and I don t like it The heroine is also powerless her father has the title and money The hero s behavior is often not admirable and borders on the contemptible The heroine is likable.

    I did not want to finish reading this book until they were both of old age Loved the couples interactions, dialogues, miscommunications and progression of their love story Curious as to the father s reaction to Drusilla s decision at the end of the book and how it may impact Priscilla.
