What is Kobo Super Points?
In this book, acting the part is what the parties do. Finding that the part is not all of what they are is the essence of the plot. I'm afraid the performance is neither interesting nor passionate. The story is contrived and incredible. After reading several disappointing books with raving reviews, I'm getting wary about buying books which are written by relatively new and unknown wirters. Format: Mass Market Paperback. Lord Justin Linton's father was licentious and downright mean to both his son and wife. The senior Linton is killed by a jealous "unknown" lover and the mother takes her own life.

Before passing, senior Linton had somehow instilled the belief of an "eye for an eye" into his son. Therefore, Lord Linton spends his adult years planning the confession and downfall of the woman who took his father's life and caused his mother's suicide. Lord Linton hires Miss Sarah Armistead, a wellborn-lady-actress-by-necessity, to help recreate events and circumstances leading to his father's death. Although Linton is rather dark and cold, we see an occasional flicker of good. Sarah seeks to reach him and free his soul from misguided revenge. There are some implausible situations of course and Lord Linton's vulnerabilities might have been better developed along with the story's resolution but, as far as Regencies go, this one was not bad or great; the writing flowed well and it kept my interest.

This is my bread and butter, you guys! It is!
I actually recommend it to people, especially if this is your jam. Maybe it was the super slow burn but I love a slow burn! Who knows! As President Claremont kicks off her reelection bid, Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret relationship with Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations. And Henry throws everything into question for Alex, an impulsive, charming guy who thought he knew everything: What is worth the sacrifice? How do you do all the good you can do? And, most importantly, how will history remember you?
Thanks, I hate it! It already has a hugely positive group of reviews already, so why did I dislike this so much? I was trying to figure that out myself as I dragged myself through the first few chapter. Was it confusing or was I just zoning out? Well, both. But those were narrative stumbles I would have gotten over if I otherwise was into the characters or crucially the romance. Unfortunately, nope. The real reason I hated reading this so much?
The Dastardly Duke - Eileen Putman - Google книги
Alex is a boring dough ball of nothing. He spends all his time protesting too much about Henry, calling Henry boring, but Alex? You have literally nothing going for you either. He has the same sitcom-zinger wit as the other characters, so no interesting narrative voice. None of the factoids that make up his character actually translate to understandable motivations on the page. The whole thing was like reading a k royalty AU fanfiction from , except less fun.
The Dastardly Duke
I could go on. Apparently a lot of people like this book. I kind of get it. I think 10 or 15 years ago, I would have liked it too. But sadly time has moved on and so have I, and thanks, I hate it. Is this because I, an old, can no longer tell the difference between 15 and 25?

Lucien Saxby is a journalist, writing for the society pages. The Honourable Aubrey Fanshawe, second son of an earl, is Society. They have nothing in common, until a casual encounter leads to a crisis. He already has it, in his long-term clandestine relationship with Lord and Lady Hernedale. And Lucien is the last man Aubrey should want. Aubrey and Lucien have too much to hide—and too much between them to ignore. Rejecting the strict rules and closed doors of Edwardian society might lead them both to ruin… but happiness and integrity alike demand it. Lucien shows up soon after the book starts, and when Aubrey is clearly responding to his bold flirtation, the Hernedales encourage him to run after this dashing stranger who caught his eye.
The book is a wonderful exploration of vulnerability and trust in relationships as Aubrey and Lucien commit to each other. There are mistakes and stumbles along the way, but without drawing it out too much all of them come back to discussion and negotiation. However, like I said, I have never enjoyed just reading relationship negotiations so much. Behind These Doors on Amazon. Though he loved working there as a kid, Ari cannot fathom a life wasting away over rising dough and hot ovens.
