Mar 09, Charmaine Stephens rated it really liked it. So for the most part I'm pleasantly surprised. I always thought I wouldn't like a historical read. I usually read more contemporary modern day stuff. But I enjoyed this book. Even though the setting is way back in the day like were talking the s here. I thought the language was going to be a bit old fashioned and stuffy but its not that way. Still kept a bit of a modern day feel even though its placed back so far in time.
But I enjoyed the story. The story kept my interest. I like it had different sub-plots going and it never got boring. Some funny moments too like one time elizabeth says, "I'm not a cunt you can rut it. If you want sexual release take yourself in hand! I'm usually a big fan of Sylvia Day books but this was just okay for me. I didn't like the back and forth of Marcus and Elizabeth's relationship.
It was just a bit annoying but was happy with the ending. I guess maybe I should have read it instead of doing audio because even the narrator annoyed me. Feb 21, Readingzmything rated it really liked it Shelves: erotic , possessive-alphas , rich-alpha , dual-pov , historical-romance.
So this is my first historical romance by Sylvia Day and I must say, I really enjoyed it. The story was intriguing, I liked both main characters and the sex was scorching hot. I will definitely be reading more from this series May 07, Kim rated it liked it Shelves: second-chance , audiobook , military-types , historical , source-audible. The book had a really promising start.
I quite enjoyed the dynamic between the H and the h, especially as they were first coming together. I loved watching their chemistry explode, along with their tempers.
Super amusing, and more than a little hot. The narrator was lovely, but she did have a tendency to make everyone sound like they were alw The book had a really promising start.
The narrator was lovely, but she did have a tendency to make everyone sound like they were always pleading, even in moments of strength, courage, or passion. So that was a strike against it too. All in all, I did enjoy it, but not enough to make the GoodStuffs list. Jul 27, Cecily Kyle rated it really liked it Shelves: wheel-a-thon-iv , e-book-owned , audible.
At first I didn't think I would be able to get into it because I am generally a fan of historical fiction type romance. However, I have always been a fan of Sylvia Day's writing and she was able to make me enjoy the characters as well as still feel like the sex scenes were hot and steamy despite the language style change.
Great Read! It was a hot historical novel. Given the fact that it was set in , I would expect the language to be adapted to the timeframe. It wasn't. Although, as a greek, I 'm not an expert on 18th century english linguistic details, I'm pretty sure that people were not that comfortable with words like "sex" and "fuck".
The way the book's characters talked seemed too contemporary for that era. I've read many of Sylvia Day's books and have loved them, my favourite being the Crossfire series of course. I really enjoyed this book and love the enemies to lovers relationship between Elizabeth and Marcus. They are such a fierce couple. The whole back story with Hawthorne and the journal was a little strange for me. It didn't really add anything to the story.
The fact that Elizabeth was in danger didn't seem to add anything until the end of the book. When the story of the journal c 3. When the story of the journal came to a close it did seem rushed. It may have been a twist but a very predictable one that I had guessed quite early on. I think the romance between the two was enough to drive the story without the journal and the rest of that story. Being a widowed woman was a strong idea to go forward with but I don't feel this was used well enough.
Her indecisive behaviour towards Marcus would have been understandable if it were to do with her late husband but it wasn't. Looking past this I really enjoyed there relationship and look forward to starting the next book.
Amy x Elizabeth and Marcus are the main characters. She flees and runs directly into the arms of Nigel who she immediately elopes with. After a year of marriage, Nigel Hawthorn is killed and after three years of mourning Elizabeth runs into Marcus at a ball. Marcus is there looking for her specifically because he has been ass Elizabeth and Marcus are the main characters.
Marcus is there looking for her specifically because he has been assigned her case. Marcus is a secret agent as was Nigel. While Marcus has been assigned this case he is also personally intent on bedding Elizabeth. Elizabeth is interested in staying far away from Marcus because she thinks that he would only break her heart were she to give it. She does not trust him to be faithful even after she finds out that he was faithful to her before.
I am not necessarily a fan of the secret agent stuff and that back story. In the romance novels I prefer to stick with the romance and have the personal issues be the drama. I did like the relationship between Elizabeth and Marcus but I think the setup was a little weak.
I also do not know what bet they are talking about in certain parts of this book. I must have somehow missed it when it was first explained. Overall I wanted to keep reading to see what happened in the end.
Ultimately we find out that the bad guy, St. The head of the agency and several of the agents are also on the take. In the end Elizabeth and Marcus are happily married, in love and find out they are pregnant. Sep 17, Liv rated it liked it Shelves: audiobook , georgian-romance , difficult-heroine. This was a nice georgian romance with a narrator that enhanced the story. I enjoyed Justine Eyrre's performance.
Her female voices were feminine and clear, and the male voices were perfectly masculine and razor sharp. This book got better as the story progressed. It's an interesting concept where the female and male leads somewhat switch traditional roles. Elizabeth was engaged to Marcus Ashford and broke her engagement to him after catching him in a suspicious situation. Yet, it was so hard to This was a nice georgian romance with a narrator that enhanced the story. Yet, it was so hard to conceive how Elizabeth was able to get herself hitched to another man the very night she broke off her engagement to Marcus.
What the????? Many questions came up right away for me. Why didn't Elizabeth give Marcus the time he needed to explain his predicament? International Editions Brazil. I will be on my guard.
