    SPOILERSMAYBE. WOW Talk about being able to hate someone and wishing them dead CC really made that easy when it same to Georgina s father and Jamie They were too horrible for words and when they beat her you just wanted to reach into the book and save her That s some good writing I couldn t figure out who was the most insane, her father or Jamie, but they were both mean and vicious when it came to punishing her Eventually, Adam found out who Georgina s father was and, of course, here s a misunderstanding that will probably go on for the rest of the book After all, I m only at 59% and the angst is about to start UGH I really do have to stop buying these 300 page books They are just too frustrating.At 80% Georgina left her maid at home, which she was told NOT to do, and snuck out to meet that miserable creature Jamie and when said creature told her to get in his carriage IF she cared for her husband, she went Really This was her second TSTL episode within minutes of each other first leaving the maid then thinking for a minute that her big strong husband needed her to protect him Wow And I have 20% of this book to go Geez At 85% she just stands there with Jamie telling his lies and Adam believes it and tells them both to go She doesn t even try to stand up for herself It s going to be tough finishing this book I don t know how this book got so many 4 and 5 star reviews Must be readers who love books filled with angst.I have to agree with reviewer Kelly This was way too angsty And it lasted until the end of the story I will admit it was a good story but it would have been better if it had been shorter It was too long for Adam to find out she wasn t a traitor and even longer for him to win her back He groveled too long.I did like the players, Nick, Tony, Stone, Archer, Nurse Catherine and the Duke of Aubrey There wasn t any sexual tension in this story buy several good sex scenes.

    Bad read This book was filled with abuse, verbally and physically to our heroin, by both her family and then later by the man who was supposed to be her husband verbal abuse only and ripping her heart to threads so many times Between the misunderstandings, the lies, deceit, believing everyone else but Georgina and lack of communication between our H h and all the angst there was little to no happy moments I felt so incredibly sad and horrified for what Georgina suffered throughout this book If an author is going to write a book such as this with so much pain and heartache then by gosh you better give us than 3 pages of HEA and that was the final page and epilogue.ugh I finished this book with hopes of its redemption, like Georgina my hopes went unfulfilled Not a read I d recommend My heart still hurts from this sad upsetting read.

    Sometimes I have a yen to read a book with a heart wrenching martyred wrongfully accused heroine And in that regard this book paid off a bit too well My goodness She has the heart of a saint She s physically beaten by her own father and his heir apparent and is beaten down by circumstances Of course, being a saint, she is sometimes helped along by protectors and she has enough spine to get up for another day I chose this book because it was kindle unlimited eligible and I thought that I could start a few chapters and see how it goes I ended up reading it straight through my insomnia riddled night but I am not quite sure what kept me from putting the book down or choosing another As in every historical romance reading bout, I rolled my eyes a few times at the lines or at the story and I might have huffed at some other parts a few times tooI blearily drove my tired body to work the next day and thought about this book, asking myself if it was a good book or a book I would recommend and I had a hard time figuring out my answer And, of course, I did this thing every author must hate I started to dissect the whole thing and think what I would have done and in doing so realizing how really the story doesn t really hold water at all SPOILERS and ISSUES view spoiler The hero is part of a Brethren of spies, but we do not know of his spy talents or spy experience if any and we find out the reason for his capture and 3 month long torture is to uncover the true nature ally or foe of the Heroine, being that she is the daughter of the terrorist know as The Fox However, this is unbeknownst to him as he was drugged by the Brethren and thrown to the wolves den hem, or foxes, in this case He falls in love with the Heroine and Secrets, Lies, and Misunderstandings ensue This is the whole premise on which the book has been created In the last chapters all is revealed of course but I was quite bemused when a mysterious duke reveals himself as a Brethren member and states the heroine is and Ally and this was obvious to him after exchanging a few mysterious words with her Really Would a powerful spy ring send his spy in the fox den, where he is to be in close quarters with the alleged informant and not advise him of this opportunity before hand so he can use his wiles and spy ness to gather info Really And all that was needed was a few words with the Big Boss And there was the poor hero being tortured for 3 months, marrying and loving the girl and still, after all, is convinced in a flash she s a mastermind evildoer Really The Brethren is a spy ring and yadayada yet they do not find out the Hero is marrying the Enemy s daughter until months after the fact They don t think to keep tabs on her as she is the only informant they have Or on him, who may or may not have divulged secrets under torture Couldn t his allegiances have been in doubt at some point We meet and get to know the heroine as she is a maid in her father s headquarters Dressed without riches, beaten constantly, serving the men and cooking the food Later, we find out her father has a legitimate front as a wealthy merchant and that she was raised as the daughter of such, and therefore speaks different languages, knows dance, deportment, and all Author wrote her father tried to marry her off but when it didn t work we don t know why he pulled her out of the marriage mart and out of society and started mistreating her again She s 20 years old when we met her Not really on the shelf yet She complains of being alone in the world and of having no acquaintances or friends or family Why If her father is the shrewd business man terrorist we are to believe and maintains a legitimate front, wouldn t he put up his daughter as the prime example of this legitimacy Send her off to finishing school Encourage her to make legitimate connections with hopefully powerful people s daughters Her abuse could have been borne from neglect and ignorance, and psychological than physical Hero not so heroic Our hero was tortured at the hand of his captors, all of which he courageously lived through I don t remember exactly what information he was to keep from divulging or the importance of that info Nobody cares anyway because when he is saved , his brother don t need information from him he hasn t gathered any anyway , they don t even want to know if he managed not to talk He is shelved and basically thrown out of the spy business We don t know why And now can t find the heroine after having been forced to abandon her Depression and PSSD then drowns the hero in alcohol When he quite accidentaly stumbles onto the heroine again, he insists on immediate marriage, against his family s very very strong objections to him marrying a maid nurse no surprise there Blissful carnal acrobatics we are not spared nor would we want to be, really and love abounds for the married couple And they finally get to discover each other and get to know each other, and fall in love This is usually my favourite part the falling in love part and it is unfortunately not developed at all We are told this has happened through talking and getting to know each other and that time has passed while this happened, but no ink is spent on this happiness In order to get back to the martyrdom and the angst, I guess The next chapter comes and of course the hero is told of her origins and goes back to the bottle and is very publicly cruel to her And this part to me is where he lost most of his honour The heroine, in true historical novel fashion, thinks she is deserving of it all and proceeds to risk her life to save the man she still loves where he realizes what a donkey he was while she is dying in his arms I don t quite get why she is ultimately forgiving himWHAT COULD HAVE BEENThese issues could have been resolved with a few courageous beta readers This is supposed to be the first of a series, focusing on the Brethren members and author seems to receive constant good reviews so I wonder if all her books fall a bit off the mark in regards to the plot, or if it is the exception Conspiracy theorist in me will even gasps suggest a ghost author s efforts Yeah, I went there Don t hate me, I know some of you are out there, can anyone say Nora Roberts Some of the issues could have been resolved had she been the illegitimate daughter or an adopted orphan, maybe Why stop the hero s spy activities Why concentrate the attention, make the whole premise, on he fact that she is secretly the daughter of a terrorist and not on wether she was an ally or a terrorist, instead The book would have still worked He could have been infiltrating by capture in order to get close to her and bring her out, marry her knowing she was the daughter of a terrorist, work with her as an ally to his spy ring, and then betray her thinking she betrayed him and the country, yadayada No hide spoiler

    I loved this book It had angst on every page almost I loved the heroine and while the hero disappointed me many times he definitely loved the h Tragically really And she loved him There were moments I was crying and moments I hated the hero but I always loved the story He totally misjudged the heroine and he totally comes to regret it Her father and adopted brother were horrible and they were totally abusive to her She was so strong I wish the epilogue had been longer Loved this book so much.

    It started out interesting, but was ultimately disappointing I liked the characters in the beginning Their relationship started off in a common way The weird love for Grace vs lust for Georgina thing didn t work for me I found that irritating When she is left behind is horrible, nothing about that is okay at all I liked how they found each other later But what is the deal with people lying all of the timeeven to spare someone else It s just stupid I cannot fathom how anyone can expect to have a real relationship built on lies Ugh I understand the circumstances but they were both idiotic Granted I thought he was awful for how he treated her And he knew she was a terrible liar Anyhow, I still enjoyed it up til about 75 80% in Then the ending was so ridiculous and muddled and just weirdly rushed It made it hard to enjoy.

    I read this book in the book Dark Deceptions This was the first story and then one by another author I loved it I didn t want to put it down This book is darker than the others I ve read by this author It has a complex plot and wonderful characters At some points, I wanted to slap the hero, but remembering what he went through helped to understand him I hope Christi writes of the Brethren group We meet some of them in this book and the agent who was the first helped by Georgina deserves a story Some of the others might also Hint hint Christi

    I really wanted to like this book, but it just fell short for me The author generated a lot of emotion for me, but it just didn t make me love it I think it may had to do with the hero I wanted from him, I really wanted him to be of a hero.


  9. says:

    There was way too much abuse and torture in this book for my tastes.
