Okay I wanted to like this book I loved the h Caitlyn and I loved Aunt Gertude and I liked how she brought his inheritance from nothing to something But I totally hated the H I do not think he was faithful while he was gone He said he didn t sleep with the contessa but he did kiss he once or twice and flirted he thought But I say bull I don t think he was faithful to her He was an idiot to listen to his dad and brother about her not really being a virgin in the first place he never wrote her alnd Deceptive Beauties even towards thend he still had doubts about her faithfulness But she my friends was true She made him a rich man And she was amazing and so was Aunt Gertrude I loved his sister Melanie too I loved what she did at the ball It was priceless Even though it all turned out at the Dangerous Work end I still didn t really like him I wish she would have found someone betteroh well You love who you love And it did have a nicepilogue Flavor and Soul eight years later and that was cute It could happen I guess This is the firstok I havever read by this author and I njoyed reading it Caitlin is a strong female character living in a man s world Trevor is on a downward spiral after the deaths of his best friend and his twin brother He is constantly gambling and losing big time He is in way over his head when his oppenent tells him that he will forgive Trevor s gambling debt if Trevor will marry his niece if he loses his next hand Trevor nds up losing and marries Caitlin sight unseen After spending a few days with her he thinks that maybe things won t be so bad He receives a summons by his father to return home which he does His family has found out about his marriage and force him to leave by joining the army and trying to get an annullment He joins up and leaves without telling Caitlin goodbye Caitlin doesn t know what to do when she finds out what Trevor did but when a surprise happens she digs in Seven years later Trevor returns from the war to a very big surprise Not only is he still married to Caitlin but she has made his state wealthy Now he is in for a long struggle to not only prove himself to Caitlin but to also keep all of the other guys from sniffing around his wife I liked the nding of this story because it tied up the storyline nicely I ll go with Suri s Review Even my liking for the hero Trevor was on off He was asily swayed and at the same time tried to protect Caitlyn I would have liked to read pages on how Caitlyn manages to turn round the state The hero could have groveled a bit Even after coming to know about how his family conspired to keep Caitlyn s letters from him Why was he so uick to jump to the wrong conclusion The book hints at some adultery regarding Trevor s parents The Countess and Earl of Wyndham but it s left unsaid The Fluxus and the Essential Questions of Life epilogue made me think that mayhap Trevor s brother Marcus would get his own story but I don t think its happenedAll in all a decent read which I wouldn t mind reading again a few years later when I would ve forgotten all about this book Closer to 15 starsThis was a tedious traditional regency with unworthy hero and the plot which relied heavily on lack of communication between the main charactersThe hero 21 year old younger son of the Earl had lost his money at cards and was forced to marry the opponent s unwanted ward our 17 year old heroine The couple moved to the hero s dilapidatedstate In two weeks the hero got summons from his father His family never knew about the marriage He promptly left his young wife behind to attend the said summons His lovely family made him believe that he was tricked into the marriage that the girl is with child by someone lse Although the heroine was a virgin at the start of the marriage but hey he gets persuaded by his family that women faked virginity since time began At the nd a weakling as he was he decided to follow his family wishes to leave England for an undetermined period of time His family would take the necessary steps to procure th.
