My least favorite of Kathleen Woodiwiss...yet still a good read.
A Woodiwiss gem. The heroine is brave, resilient and determined. The hero refuses to submit to a course charted in their childhood and agrees to a trial courtship in which he will convince both himself and Lady Adriana that love cannot be forced. He is soon shown the error in his judgment and finds his would be bride irresistible.
Torture - I prefer the writing styles of Christina Dodd & Stephanie Laurens. Ms. Woodiwiss uses five words for every one, as if blocking a script, leaving nothing to the imagination of the reader. I feel quite condescended to. Wonderful story, but a shame it's written this way. This one should be speed-read if at all.
honestly I am having a hard time reading it. It is very detailed and some information I just don't enjoy reading about for example fabric and designs of furniture. But I am determined to get through it, maybe. It just isn't my cup of tea.
A bold and breathtaking tale of a beautiful noblewoman who is coveted by every high-born gentleman in the land - except the only man she could ever love.
