    I thought it an Eh book It was interesting during the beginning, but the hero s past was drawn out a bit too long and so I found myself skipping through most of the middle just to get to the ending There were some cute moments between Hh where he would make her blush for the benefit of their charade but over all not a lot of romance view spoiler not until like 70% into the book do they share a passionate embrace in which they are caught by Leigh and Swanson and then decide to marr I thought it an Eh book It was interesting during the beginning, but the hero s past was drawn out a bit too long and so I found myself skipping through most of the middle just to get to the ending There were some cute moments between Hh where he would make her blush for the benefit of their charade but over all not a lot of romance view spoiler not until like 70% into the book do they share a passionate embrace in which they are caught by Leigh and Swanson and then decide to marry with just a look in each others eyes hide spoiler And the thing I didn t like at all was that most of the book was about his determination to get his vengeance on those who wronged him and at the end of the book, he completely lets it go like wth I also wanted a story between Leigh and Sybil, but I guess we ll have to leave it at what EL insinuated

    A man with a dark past and a revenge fantasy about to come true engages in a mostly fake courtship with the heroine to assist in his revenge Can he decide between revenge and his new love Will he be able to protect his new girl friend from the dangers in his life This was actually really good, which is surprising because I remember reading a Layton book years ago and not being impressed at all Maybe she s hit or miss, or maybe my taste has changed.

    Mi aspettavo di pi , dopo avere letto The Duke s wager In realt , il racconto sufficientemente sostenuto fino a tre quarti del libro ma la fine inaspettatamente melensa non mi piaciuta affatto Seguendo il penoso strascinarsi della storia verso gli ultimi capitoli, non ho potuto fare a meno di chiedermi forse anche le moderne scrittrici di romanzi, come i pi celebri Dickens e Dumas, sono pagate un tanto a pagina

    Quite good story although the revelation about the cause of the hero s need for revenge is drawn out a bit too much through the book we know something unforgivable has happened, but don t know what until right at the end Dialogue not quite as sparkling and book as a whole not as witty as some of Layton s other books, but enjoyable nonetheless.

  8. Alex says:

    Didn t quite enjoy this book actually I didn t eveb finish.I thought Edith would do a story for Sybil, but she really was just a secondary character

  9. June says:

    very weak in romance side does not feel the moment the two started falling in love or how they really felt about each other.
