littleI was rooting for the romance between Monica and Thomas right from the beginning The development of their characters was natural andasy to believe they were both flawed which made them realistic

anything work between them and a few twists really did leaveverything up in the air but I loved the way the author worked the romanceWhat A Woman Desires was really character driven and alongside the attraction and developing feelings between Monica and Thomas I also loved reading about Monica s family relations and this is where the age the novel was set in really had an impact because a lot of her family s thoughts and principles were old fashioned and so intriguing to read Though Monica s return to Biddestone is due to her father dying it was interesting to see how his previous beliefs and actions seemed to still manipulate the family s lives Nothing was black and white there were moments when it felt like he was horribly controlling and others where it seemed maybe there had been a different side to him that went unnoticed Monica s mother had bad health of her own and she wasn t what Monica was Zack (Areion Fury MC expecting her to be once she returned The mother s story hit me

S full of angst but the sweet nding makes all the drama worthwhileMonica Danes left home five years arlier to pursue her dream of becoming an actress despite her parents disapproval She has had no contact with her parents or her sister Jane in the intervening years but when she learns of her father s death Monica returns home for his funeral Intending to leave as soon as possible Monica is torn between duty and desire but it is her love for Thomas Ashby that causes her the most turmoilMonica is a strong independent woman and while she is likable she comes across as a little thoughtless and selfish She is definitely conflicted about leaving her family behind again but she still feels confined and stifled by family xpectations and country life Despite their time apart Monica is still in love with Thomas but overcoming their differences seems insurmountableThomas is very loyal and dedicated to his family Monica s family and the Danes tenants He loves his life on the state and while he might visit the city occasionally he has absolutely no desire to live there Thomas wants nothing than for Monica to stay but he will not stand in the way of her leavingThomas and Monica are both passionate about what they want in life and there does not seem to be a compromise for their very different desires The near constant conflict between them is wearisome and they spend most of the

Invisible (The Curse of Avalon entertaining andngaging romance The characters are well developed and the overall plot is interesting A lovely Yummy Supper epilogue wraps up all of the loosends for Thomas and Monica but Rachel Brimble does leave few intriguing uestions unanswered All in all a fabulous love story that fans of historical romances are sure to njoy What a Woman Desires is a fantastic read I am really njoying historical romance novels at the moment and will happily add Rachel Brimble to my Deep Listening ever growing list of brilliant historical fiction writersI thought that the character development and all the plot twists and turns werextremely well mastered by the author The tension and drama between Monica and Thomas is noticeable from the first few pages onwards As much as I loved these two I sometimes also felt slightly frustrated with them both are so incredibly head strong and didn t want to move away from their own ways and opinionsI also really liked the supporting cast in this novel The relationship between Monica Jane her sister and her mother was really interesting and I found it astounding to read about the influence Monica s father still had over the characters long after his passingIf you are looking for a powerful historical romance novel I strongly recommend you delve into this book I received a copy for an honest reviewI m leaning toward 45 on this one Ms Brimble knows how to create conflict This is the 2nd title of her s that I ve read and once again she didn t disappoint Inner and xternal for not just the MCs but supporting cast as well is clear and believableThe setting is rich Spot on In 3D detail I got swept right up in hearing seeing smelling ach scene LOVE when that happensPlot is perfect for an independent woman of the 19th century desperate to make it on her own and society s hindering her Evolution, Me Other Freaks of Nature every decisionOn to the charactersmy only nitpick of this bookThomas the male MC is a passionate man About many things Too much so for my taste While I realize that it was up to the men at this time in history to care for their families andlderly parents Thomas Lara and the Gray Mare (Hoofbeats: Lara and the Gray Mare, emotional level over the conflict he faced was a bit much His anger roused over the littlest things and he reacted to Monica s actions and words without consideration for her feelings than I cared for While some women might not mind a man like that there s nothing worse IMO than being misunderstood and having a man react before giving proper thought to what he s seen or heard Had he been a bit calm and level headed What a Woman Desires would have gotten anasy 5 from me Without uestionWould I recommend this book Absofriggin lutely If you re a sucker for historical romance with tension and passion then nab a copy You ll be glad you did Although I m a reader of all genres historicals are never my first choice That said Rachel Brimble scored an absolute winner with me and What a Woman DesiresI m not sure the reasons behind my reluctance to reach for the historical romances but I think it s mostly to do with my lack of knowledge on most period times However there are a few booksauthors in this genre where timings do not matter as you become so swept up in the characters Trajan everythinglse becomes irrelevant In this instance I felt
