contemporary language But for some odd reason, it is used in what is supposed to be a historic romance.If the writer chose to do no research at all, as to the language commonly used in 1811, why not just write a contemporary story I didn t get very far, maybe a few chapters, when the much too contemporary language for example, two weeks is used, repeatedly, as opposed to what would have, at the time, been referred to, as But for the languageNo, not off color, harsh language Just everyday contemporary language But for some odd reason, it is used in what is supposed to be a historic romance.If

historic romance, is the quirky language no longer common today This book, unfortunately, fell flat on it s face in that regard.Had the language not been a deal breaker for me, it seemed to be going along just fine I just hate that the writer either didn t know, or didn t care enough to do a little research What an odd little book So many things to irritate me but they all came together well and did not irritate me I almost gave up on the nasty Lord Livesy If he hadn t had such a damaging past that made it very clear why he acted like an ass I would have put this one down I am so glad Phoebe was a strong young woman and didn t let him get away with any of it The writing style was so odd We got a little of everyone s thoughts People were introduced almost to the end of the story but you got What an odd little book So many things to irritate me but they all came together well and did not irritate me I almost gave up on the nasty Lord Livesy If he hadn t had such a damaging past that

story, but somehow it worked But it also felt a little forced, like page filler, because my biggest complaint about this book was how little time the main characters actually spent together talking and getting to know each other They spent most of the time they were together which wasn t much arguing I would have enjoyed this so muchhad they actually developed there relationship so I could believe they fell in love somewhere in there There is no religious element the book is very chaste Good first draftI really wanted to like this book The ideas are great, but they remained undeveloped If I were the editor, I would have handed the book back to the author and said Show me don t tell me For example, I am told throughout the book that Phoebe is a bluestocking, but I never see any sign of it What book was Phoebe reading in the library when she fell asleep Philosophy Economics Maybe a newspaper open to an editorial on Wellington s military strategies How would George have Good first

like a Hufflepuff instead of teaching them about gravity and airflow like a Ravenclaw The whole reason I picked the book up was because it was supposed to be about a bluestocking, but I never got to read about one.George is similarly underdeveloped If parenthood scares him, where is an example of it Where did that fear come from On top of that, there were several missing commas, misused hyphens and misused compound words, among other grammar and punctuation errors I know, my review had plenty of errors, but I was using voice to text on a phone rather than a keyboard This review function is terrible to use on a phone And I have higher expectations from a book with an editor It reads like a really great first draft, but if the author spent just a couple ofmonths on it, it would have been a richer reading experience Mhm Difficult one to rate This book is pretty special as it s not only about one couple but two really and several side characters I usually like that, don t get me wrong Multiple povs give you a better Insight, show you how other characters feel, what drives them, why they do what they do etc But in this case, I would argue that the focus was a it misplaced Sure, it was nice and fun at times to read about Aunt Dickson or the hero s sister but this book should have focusedon the Kid Mhm Difficult one to rate This book is pretty special as it s not only about one

focusedon the Kids They werent as integral to the story and plot as they should have been, I think.Plus, I am not sure they could have been as easily placated as they were in the book by Phoebe, our heroine After years of abuse and neglect, I would say that the Kids have scars that don t simply vanish Plus, that doesn t portray the Hero in a positive light Sure, he was in a bad place but he didn t seem to care at all about his girls Okay, that s maybe a bit too harsh but to a certain degree it just seemed that way Other than that, I still enjoyed reading this one It was different than others The plot was entertaining Phoebe as a character was well developed and brilliant Adored that she was no pushover, wouldn t let their kiss intensify, wouldn t accept the hero without being sure that there is some love involved.The writing style was good, too.Will definitely pick up other books by this author
