Disclaimer: This is one person’s opinion. This is not my go-to genre.
An American woman goes to England to marry a guy, the Earl of Devonport. The guy has to marry this stranger because of a deal his father and her grandfather made. Something about land and inheriting more property or not.
- I spent much of the book thinking it’d be worlds better if somebody up and kidnapped the woman. For several hours’ worth of story it seemed nothing was happening. It was a he-said, she-said middle school like gossip-fest.
- The Christian aspects were very strong, which is fine.
- Devon’s turnabout from nincompoop to knight in shiny armor seemed kind of sudden.
- Emma was pretty steady throughout.
- I did NOT like Devon’s friend. It takes a fair amount of skill to create somebody that unlikable, but still, he came across as a mean-spirited, meddlesome louse. After all the trouble, Devon doesn’t even kick him to the curb – that at least would have been highly satisfying, just a “oh, sorry, old-boy, thought I was doing you a favor” kind of thing. Also, his motive didn’t seem strong enough to hate women and think they’re all exactly the same brand of manipulative witch.
- I did enjoy the epilogue.
If you like Christian regency style romance, you should give this one a shot.
