Seriously, she read a good five to ten years younger than her 27 just from the swooning around after someone obviously weak and incompetent. She snapped shut her fan and rapped his fingers as hard as she could, watching with great satisfaction as he choked back a yelp of pain.
Which was too bad. Venetia and Millie had come along as her chaperones. Last night, because I enjoyed it and binged it to no end, I might have given it a 5. Thomas, so it is extremely hard for me to give any book she writes a 3 star rating. If Christian admitted his identity, would Townsend blacken his name before the missus?
You’ve kept fully abreast of all the developments. There are two explicit sex scenes, but the second is beyond short. Venetia is so incredibly lovely that she makes men literally stare, stumble and obsess. It was not until the next day that he wondered what Townsend had meant by “you may yet have your wish.
Since this is a book club read, I don’t want to give any particulars in the review as I don’t want to influence other book club members with my review but I’ll speak in generalities and maybe will come back and update after our book club discussion. His father, for one, did not approve of his scientific interests.
It doesn’t deserve negative infinity stars – there hserry no sleep rape or repetitive passages about lit flares, for instance. However, since I also want to be truthful when I write a review, then I must let the 3 star must stand. Previously infertile Venetia conceives in a foreshadowing as subtle as a Then just as shit is supposed to be wrapping up, it The biggest mitigating factor was that Christian was so delightful the rest of the time.
And if he despised Howard for wanting her, then why bring Howard deeper into their lives? Shocked, Christian made inquiries and learned that Townsend had been on the verge of bankruptcy.
The gentle seduction works too well, leaving both Christian and Venetia in a limbo of frustrated passion. She said Belfort wasn’t serious enough.
We learn just enough about these characters to thr forward to Fitz and Millie’s story in the upcoming Ravishing the Heiress Berkley Sensation and Helena’s in Tempting the Bride. But you do gotta wonder about a man who’d schtup a woman whose face he never sees, and a woman who knocks boots with a guy she doesn’t much like.
Beguiling the Beauty
The book begins with what is essentially one very, very long prologue and, as a matter of fact, that figurative prologue is prefaced by a literal prologue, as well. I loved the chemistry between Christian and Venetia, not just the physical, but their passion for their shared interest in paleontology, the emotional honesty allowed by Venetia’s an I devoured this book in one sitting.
Her posture may be physically possible although who knows what she’s doing with her right First please indulge me as I spend a paragraph or two hating on the cover illustration. I’m diving right into book !! She remarries a wealthy, older man, and it is rumoured she had an affair with one of her second husband’s best friends.
Her beauty was staggering, excessive, as if she were not quite flesh and blood, but an artist’s conjuration, born of a bout of fevered ecstasy.
However, I am not the kind of person who won’t nitpick a book just because she got it for free. There are elements of Beast that are undoubtedly superior. The plot is couched in deception and misunderstandings, some of which are so slight a five minute conversation would clear the air.
Helena was lovely, intelligent, and personable. It’s too confusing to explain because it makes no fucking sense.
The first few chapters dragged a little with several time lapses, but once our two main characters met in the New York hotel and on the ship sailing back to London, I couldn’t stop reading. The characters and story in this book are great – both the hero and heroine are so flawed and beguioing, yet completely lovable.
But he’d lain with the man’s wife countless times bfauty his mind. She barely caught it before it pasted onto her face. Of course they fall in WUV, bond over their common love of dinosaur fossils, he even presents her with a 6 x 4 foot slab of above fossilized footprints, and there’s some “witty” banter about masturbation, another common ST theme. I cannot wait to read the next book in the series: Squid, perhaps, which had been abundant in the Triassic seas.
There wasn’t any darkness in this story at all, and the Hero was utterly bewitched by the heroine both physically and without ever seeing her face. The two gossips responsible for spreading the nasty rumors about Venetia show up and declare that their year reputation as responsible gossips LOLWHUT?
But it entices and enthrals you till you have a goofy little smile in the end. That was embarrassingly cheesy and I cringed a little bit when they talked about their reputation as gossipers. befuiling
He dreamed of her. Last Night With the Earl. I think Ivory was more concerned with beautiful language than reader satisfaction, whereas ST keeps her reader befuiling in mind.
