You submitted the following rating and review. Determined to make a perfect match, he methodically cuts Olivia from his thoughts, allowing logic and duty to triumph over passion…Until, in his darkest hour, Tarquin begins to question whether perfection has anything to do with love.
The same streamers appeared on the sides and the backs of the gowns, rippling in the faintest breeze. The readers of course!!
Okay, so then the next weird thing was that the first time they have sex, it’s in a tree. I certainly would have been less bored. There are at least a dozen ways to accomplish that goal without making elisa a truly deplorable, reprehensible, unsympathetic, and downright mean-spirited character.
I had hoped there might be some redemption as far as what I was reading. Intertwined with the romance was a colorful xuke of characters, including a flea-bitten dog named, Lucy, a musical young fellow with a flair for fashion, and a sweetly innocent marquess determined to find glory on the battlefield.

Quite often, I am irritated by historical romance heroines and just want to slap them silly. Not because of how he was, but because she was frustrated and there was no way out for her. I swear, by the time the novel ended, Quin had made me want to schtump Olivia. To Wed a Rake. There could have been less dramatic ways of ending the engagement and Quinn not feeling like stole someone’s woman.
We start off with Olivia and Georgiana saying some unkind things about him, but only to one another. If you are new to this author The Ugly Duchess was oddly paced and dragged, and the fashion was just god-awful fashion was kind of a major motif in that story and the romance part was uncomfortable at times, and Beauty Tamed the Beast just read like bad House fanfiction, but overall, they weren’t terrible.
When I wrote about a miscarriage in Midnight PleasuresI used my own fears of premature birth; when the little girl in Fool For Love threw up and threw up, I described my own daughter, who had that unsavory habit for well over her first year of life.

If it hadn’t been for the weird stuff, this would have been a solid four stars.
