I feel like I shouldn t have liked this book as much as I did After all there were plenty of things that were really kind of wrong with it The whole using Adrian s blindness thing was really kind of shitty and I m not sure that after all was said and done it should have been excused the way it was Yes he neglected her for three years and kept his blindness a secret from her But two wrongs don t make a right you know Also the virgin to her own pleasures sex Hurl And he actually said he would make her submit to him with pleasure I had to forcibly set that one aside and excuse it as being probably pretty fairly accurate for this relationship s situation as well as the ignorance of the times The biggest crime of the story however was that I just didn t uite believe that they had really loved each other originally before all the separation and crap I mean maybe I missed a chapter where we were shown how Adrian had secretly lusted after his friend s sister but it was indecent and he was ashamed and she was just a shy innocent young thing so he couldn t touch her blah blah blah Instead his unreuited love for his wife whom he voluntarily abandoned just kind of ot dropped in there towards the end Convenient yet not uite believableAnd yet despite its flaws I did enjoy it A lot Even though I think maybe I shouldn t have I mean maybe it s hormones again but I totally Reine Mädchensache got a little teary about Emily s insecurities and feelings of abandonment So yeah between how much I did enjoy it and how much I think maybe I shouldn t have itets a solid 3 stars Lady Emily Longesley married the man she had loved all her life Adrian and hoped for a happy marriage Only several days after they were married however he removed to London and she hasn t seen him in the three years sinceDiscontent with the state of her marriage Emily Animal Babies goes to London to meet with her errant husband and bring some kind of resolution to her situation When she arrives though she finds that he is blind and does not know her voice So she schemes to hide her identity and trick her husband into falling for her while he believes that he has found an irresistible mistress Lady Folbroke s Delicious Deception by Christine Merrill is a regency romance heavy on sensuality and light on plotNot being a regular reader of romance I was a little shocked at the bluntness of it scarcely thirty pages in Merrill casually writes that Adrian sagged against Emily so that he could suck and bite at the tops of her breasts as though he could not wait a moment longer to bare them and take the nipples between his lips This sets the tone for the whole book which is a series of such scenes interspersed with some development of the characters or the plotThe character development is until the end fairlyood Emily is swept up in her scheme and Adrian all unknowing falls for it completely in a very believable progression There is perhaps an anachronistic degree of modern sensibilities toward the treatment of the blind but that is easily forgiven Sadly Adrian s realization or perha. Emily Longesley married the love of her life and hoped that he would learn to love her Instead he upped and left their country estate for London Suffering.

Ps revelation that he loves Emily who he does not realize is the same woman as his new mistress is not so believable If we are to judge the man by his actions he has Offenders and Detainees given little indication of such feelings and we have not been sufficiently privy to his thoughts to learn of his feelings in that wayThe plot is very thin the summary Iave earlier is essentially complete save for a few events and minor details Emily masuerades as a nameless married woman seeking to have an affair with Adrian since her own husband is inattentive The bulk of the remaining events are either the two of them meeting or arranging to meet It is not a plot worthy of either the characters it contains or the three hundred pages that contain itDespite the weakness of its plot Lady Folbroke s Delicious Deception is a fairly entertaining read It seems that the Kindle edition is only available outside the United States so the rest of us will have to qasas-ul-quran get the paperback edition instead Read it if the premise interests you but otherwiseive it a miss Disclosure This review is based on a copy acuired free in a promotional iveaway This creative romance ives the reader a different twist by having the couple married Emily loves her estranged husband and wants to have him back in her life Unfortunately to do this she pretends that she is someone else While she is pretending to be her husbands mistress she falls in love again with the love of her life But will have have her back in his life Are things really what she thought they were when he left her OK reresding this and had to Dead-End Road Mysteries give it another star as I still like it so much despite his cowardly cheating ways so 4 Emily and Adrian Essentially the H is a cheater There s just no if and or buts about it Emily marries Adrian whom she s loved for years He up and disappears in London for no reason leaving her behind A snake in therass cousin is becoming and of a bully and she longs for children so 3 years later she Hear the Wolves goes to London to demand his help When she finds him she realizes that he is almost e 25 Well written it didn t play out as I thought it might and weet a view early on as to why the H is a cheater and there s some sympathy for him I Valors Measure guess it softens the reader up for the ride which time and again shows us his self absorption While I could understand some of the H s behaviours the manner in which he treated his wife is played off as his burden ofuilt and that he really cared for her But then in other places it s clear he hardly knew her That picture didn t fit and in the end the pieces felt forced together so the obligatory ILY s between the H and the h wife were not so believable but so between the H and the h lover I liked the h she took control when she needed to I enjoyed this book very much in part due to engaging characters The author does a fine job of describing life as a man of very limited sight would experience it In addition the social constraints on both men and women are very evident in this plot showing that even though Emily is a very bright and capabl. The snub with dignity three years on Emily has had enoughConfronting her errant husband Emily sees that Adrian Earl of Folbroke has been robbed of his si.
E manager of the estate her position remains dependent on her husband s status A sign of the times but irritating nonetheless is the fact Adrian can visit prostitutes with no loss of status but his wife can t take a lover of her own class without scandal Of course they BFI Film Classics get past his infidelities in the course of the story but he s very lucky she took him back Solid 4 for being surprisingly soood Despite the thoughtless abandonment and cheating by the H this book and characters stand out because they behave and talk like adultsNo seriously and strangely it s the first time ever I had that thought about the main characters of a book Full review later on This was a tough book to rate I wanted to take it as a brainless and even whimsical storyLady Emily hasn t seen her husband in three years and when she finds him to try to talk him into Tni Tata Dunia Baru Sistem Pertahanan getting her pregnant only to discover that he sone blind and doesn t recognize her Here s what I finally realized the problem was It s hard to take a story as simple and brainless when it deals with serious and complex issues then treats them very lightly This book was just too easy It was too easy that Adrian didn t recognize his wife too convenient It was even unbelievable And then a week with his mistress actually his wife was enough to convince him his life was worth living after all and that he can وصف الاستعباد في مملكة فاس - مذكرات أسير سويدي على عهد السلطان مولاي عبد الله get along as a blind man Then when he learned the truth that his mistress and his wife were the same woman it was again far too easy I really liked this book When Emily came to London to finally confront her husband about his neglect she did not expect to find him blind and doing his best to kill himself He didn t recognize her when she found him in the tavern so she decided to take advantage of that and become his mistress in an attempt to make him fall in love with her She also couldn t stand to see him in such a hopeless condition and decided to use her position to show him that he could still have aood life At the same time Adrian had spent the last couple years avoiding everyone and drinking to dull the pain of losing his independence When Emily rescued him she bullied him into making changes in his lifestyle and he began to see that perhaps his life wasn t ending after all He also began to realize that he still loved his wife and what he had done to her by abandoning her I loved seeing her efforts and the way they paid off even though I could see where it was oing to cause problems when the deception ended The confrontation brought me to tears but the ending was worth it I m looking forward to the next one in the series Is it just me or has Harleuin Historical kicked up the heat notch a bit I m not complaining in fact the extra sizzle I have been reading lately really adds to the stories As it does here I enjoyed Christine s Merrill s book Yes the heroine snares the hero in a deception but it works Also loved Folbroke with his failing vision Well crafted with believable emotions and love scenes I heartily recommend this story and book 2 in this serie. Ght and doesn't know her at all Emily longs for her husband's touch If she plays his mistress by delicious deception can he finally learn to love his wife.
