Kindle é Memoirs of a Scandalous Red Dress á Elizabeth Boyle

Lady Philippa Knolles has loved Captain Thomas Dash Dashwell since he first stole a kiss from her on a smuggler's beach near Hastings Now after what seems like a lifetime of waiting As a big Pippin and Dash fan I am extremely disappointed with the development of their storyline To have the Pippin married to Gossett and not meet up with Dash until 23 years later just killed their story for me I can't see the Dash and Pippin from the past 3 books letting go of their love just like that The only explanation that this can happen is that Pippin had changed her mind about Dash which there were some indications of in the Black Gown I do not see the purpose of why Dash was written as a widower he got married after meeting Pippin when she was 16 and was a widower for 2 months when he met up with Pippin again in Love Letters Was it written in to even out the fact that Pippin was married? I don't see how Dash being married before can be considered as a betrayal to Pippin To have Dash give up and turn to drinking to drown his sorrow do not fit with the Dash of the previous 3 books I had hoped Elizabeth Boyle will pull some trick out of the hat that will satisfactorily dissolve Pippin and Gossett's marriage and Dash and Pippin will sail off to the sunset Alas that is not the case Pippin lived happily married for 23 years without a thought for Dash and Dash lived 23 years of misery trapped by his Circe's magic Absolutely disappointing for a great couple Rating this book is tough Had this been a book about a different couple and not the couple I had followed for the past 3 books I would have enjoyed it However for this to be Pippin and Dash's story I felt overwhelmly sad and disappointed

Ebook Memoirs of a Scandalous Red Dress

Memoirs of a Scandalous Red DressKed away in the back of her closet is a red dress the one she wore long ago to win his heart Could it have enough memories left inside it to rekindle a passion she's never forgotten Dash and Pippin's story finally I was appalled initially at discovering they had been torn apart for 20 something years and wondered if people could rediscover that young love again I was heartbroken by the ending of the previous book and had not expected the characters to be separated for so longThe first half of the book was hard to read Dash who I idealized in the other books is a wastrel hate filled man It was hard to read these scenes and I was very disappointed in the characters The I thought on it I realized the author had to show the re sparking of the characters passion for one another and their need to get past their own self loathing for past decisionsOnce Dash throws the alcohol overboard I breezed through the book Our old hero was back with his sparkling charm and wooed are heroine There were several humorous moments involving the adult children's reaction to the parents lust Also the sex scene in the cabin was hotOverall I liked the book though I found it hard to read the beginning I can't wait to read John's story next
