Rrespondence and finds herself falling head over heels in love Sensitive intelligent and high minded her noble pen pal seems to embody everything Emily has ever dreamed of in a man But Simon Augustus Traherne the mysterious Earl of Blade is not at all what he seemsDriven by dark smoldering passions and a tragic secret buried deep within his soul Blad This book was a cracking good read I really enjoyed the push pull between the hero and heroine It was fun and engaging and I was completely immersed the very best kind of romanceThe tension created by the two different perspectives of Emily and Blade was well done and very entertaining She is naive and he is cynical and bent on revenge But uick inserts enough ambiguity into this dynamic that the heroine never is at the hero's mercy She never does anything she does not want to do She has a romantic nature as in Romanticism the literary philosophy of the time concerned with passion transcendence and the Sublime and insists that their relationship is transcendent in nature He initially indulges this sillyness because it suits his dastardly plans but uick deftly makes it clear that naive and silly it may be but it might also be true And while he thinks it is claptrap he could be the blind naive one not herAnd this makes the book great The initial power imbalance in a plot with a manipulative hero and naive heroine never really materialises Instead it is a constant give and take So very well doneBut mostly this works because it's a great story I couldn't and wouldn't put it down and closed the book feeling happy The hallmark of an excellent romance

BOOK Scandal By Amanda Quick

Scandal By Amanda QuiE has all of London cowering at his feet but not Emily never Emily For even as she surrenders to his seductive charms she knows the real reason for his amorous suit And she knows that she must reach the heart of this golden eyed dragon before the avenging demons of their entwined pasts destroy the only love she has ever known From the Paperback editi Upon reading a synopsis of Scandal I was hesitant to read it I haven't read a marriage of convenience in a long time and really this just didn't seem like my thing I got about a uarter of the way through and still wasn't so sure The heroine Emily appears almost stupid at parts too stuck in her romantic literature to face reality However there is a point when she carefully lays out the reasons the Earl should marry her where Emily's supposed stupidity becomes almost endearing and the reader realizes that she can indeed recognize reality from fiction It is wonderful to watch the hero Simon struggle with himself An alpha male Simon finds it difficult to let anyone take charge And while he definitely struggles with trying to control her he does not ever really confront the struggle consciously There are not pages and pages devoted to his arguments with himself and I loved that I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this book in the end It was an enjoyable read so than most romance books I've read in the last few months
