    I find it rather odd the way propriety is completely ignored in some instances in this book Such as when the women descended on Jason a few hours after his arrival I mean a book that has women rudely visiting a supposedly single man in his home without a maid or their menfolk present mere minutes after his arrival tired from his journey with full knowledge that he has no female in residence to greet them is just Bizarre A book that then has the man blithely call for tea in this situation does not seem too concerned with historical accuracy and the ins and outs of chaperones So it is rather annoying the way proper behavior is brought up conveniently later on as if the characters are actually suddenly aware of propriety's dictates Where was this consciousness earlier?Then too the behavior of the supposed newly married viscount could have in no way enhanced any female with an already damaged reputation's standing His escorting a lithe young woman anywhere or riding out with her on mornings would never force the townspeople to stop shunning her They'd simply label her as a husband thief and whore in addition to her previous much milder sins I really don't understand the ridiculousness of this plot C'mon Jason takes a young woman Alone to a ball without the permission or chaperonage of her guardians and this is supposed to be ok? This after earlier offering to pay for her new wardrobe which she thankfully refuses but sheesh no man from that time would have even made the offer being very aware of its be my kept woman implications “All the slights the snubs the snide looks and comments would have to be stifled when she entered the party She kept telling herself she would be greeted with deference acknowledged with envy accepted back into the fold without any challenges because no one with half a brain would wish to anger or displease the viscount To do so would be social suicide Gwendolyn pressed her lips together then put her hand on his arm With his words of encouragement ringing in her ears she marched up the steps and swept through the front door as if she were ueen of the castle” ExcerptI would wonder about the half a brain the main characters are apparently working with rather than that of the townspeopleSigh First time with this author Never Again Overall it's endlessly repetitive both in dialogue characters' thoughts and repeated emphasis on the rather flimsy author 'created conflict' which we apparently need to have explained to us every two pages just in case we forgot Spare yourself the frustration

    cut not so much for spoilers as immense crankinessMeet my own personal decision tree for books like thisDoes one character perform a Convenient Misleading Act upon the other?if yesAre there multiple opportunities for logical resolution that the author ignores for no good reason?if yesIs it resolved in an interestingunpredictable way?if noDoes the resolution involve any conseuence for the character who lied?if noDoes the Misleading Act add any depth humor or characterization to the book or anything at all except extra page count?if nothrow book against wall repeat

    This book has a fairly interesting story The premise is a little unusual possibly because it is a little forcedThere are some secrets to uncover including Gwendolyn's past not nearly as shocking as the people in her town made it out to be but that's the point and what's happening to the estate's money I thought far too much was revealed far too earlyI thought the bad guys were incredibly stupid again a plot point that was a little forcedGwendolyn was a likable heroine without being over the top Jason was pretty honorable for the reputation he had I wasn't overly impressed with the climax and there is way too much that follows the climax The epilogue was totally a wasteMature themes two very explicit and extended bedroom scenes and a third shorter one There is some physical violence and even killings There was some unnecessary vulgar language

    I thought it was refreshing that Jason went out of his way to get Gwendolyn accepted into society again Then she put herself right back into the fire by sleeping with him but her love was stronger than her common sense at the time Loved how it ended at the house he wanted to buy her The perfect ending

    Lovely a new story line I discovered Adrienne Basso her books in the first book store I found when we moved from Hawaii to Florida; she'll keep me from missing Paradise too much She knows how to keep a story going Other characters rounded enough to make a seuel or two ah younger unmarried sisters

    Mehh very boring nothing really happened Stopped at page 150

    Love the title Pleasant light read entertaining with sensual sex scenes I think this may be part of a series due to all the references to off scene characters and their history The hero is an identical twin who takes on the identity of his brother in order to investigate missing money from his brother's country estate There he meets the heroine a young woman who made scandalous mistakes on her trip to London for her comeout year By today's standards her mistakes may seem trivial but historically what she did was enough to ruin her good standing in the communityI appreciated the hero's personal growth when he compared his truly scandalous past behavior with her innocent mistakes how he remained in good standing and yet she was cut dead from society and decided to champion her bring her back into good standing with the harpies of the communityThe climax is action packed not one of emotional crisis and growth so don't worry about weeping in public while reading

    Jason and Jasper are identical twins but the connection stops at that point Where Jasper is reserved; Jason is adventurous and a rake Yet the two of them work together to find out who is stealing money and property from the estate Along the way Jason falls for Gwendolyn Ellingham Unfortunately she believes he is married actually it is Jasper who is married Jason is so self effacing one has to root for him to win Gwen
