    Phew! That was fast. Where to begin? Oh yes, how about how much I dislike indecisive, sniveling heroines? Yes, my friends, the heroine sucks. Listen, I understand what kind of predicament she found herself in (one she could not be blamed for), but Lord above she gave the Hero a case of blue balls more times than I care to count! Way too many "no, stop! wait! come back! no, don't touch me! Well...maybe touch me there!" moments. It wasn't all bad though! I really like the authors style and I enjoy Phew! That was fast.

He was a shameless horn-dog, and I appreciated his honesty. I just could not bring myself to like the heroine. I will say I am shocked this book doesn't have more reviews. I liked the cover- I thought it was beautiful in its own way and the plot is very old school BR! It just wasn't executed all that well.

    Gothicky-erotica-ish! (That sounds like a new swear word, hm.) I hate the cover - honestly, I try to ignore cover art for the most part, but every time I brought this up on Kindle, I went "Aiee!". Ick. Not the face I want to imagine as the anti-hero's. Sigh Anyway...decently steamy scenes (is that an oxymoron?), although it was a little tiresome to have Fawn go on and on about him being her "uncle". The mailman would've been more related, practically. But I get it - a gothic revisiting of the comp Gothicky-erotica-ish! (That sounds like a new swear word, hm.)

The mailman would've been more related, practically. But I get it - a gothic revisiting of the completely naive heroine, facing scary, sexy sort-of-related guy. It put me in mind somewhat of Catherine and Heathcliff, and a little of Rochester from Jane Eyre, too, later on. No spoiler! It was a little muddy with the true "bad guys". I would've liked a clearer set-up from the beginning, but things were mentioned and then totally dropped until much, much later, and I had to go back to remember who was involved in what. Fun book though, and a quick read. If you want a little angsty sexiness set in a historical era, this is a nice one to jump into.

    An updated version of a Victorian romance. The melodrama is there and at the center of it all is a woman''s virtue. I enjoyed it. An updated version of a Victorian romance. The melodrama is there and at the center of it all is a woman''s virtue. I enjoyed it.
