From England to America and Back Again in the late 18th century

First released as RAPTURE’S RANSOM, this is the story of Brien Weston, daughter of the Earl of Southwold, who one day wakes up and realizes his daughter, now in her early 20’s is too stubborn and willful and must be married. Believing no man would have her, the earl picks the son of a French business associate for her husband. After she meets him, though he is handsome and smooth talking, she discovers the French nobleman only wants

A new author to me, a different kind of premise, so I wanted to give a go. I will say the plot was different from usual, but not very good. Brien is the only surviving child of the Earl of Southwold. She's become so efficient and independent, not weak willed and stupid as the Earl prefers women, he sells her off to a Frenchman. Brien accepts the Frenchman at first but finds out his true nature and goes to London to marry to stop her marriage to the Frenchman. Her maid helps her find a man, Aaron ...more

What a very nice story. I realized how much I miss reading historical romances.

I liked the story... a bit unique with the Colonial America traveling... I liked the heroine's bodyguard... he definitely saved the day a couple of times!

The Good: As usual, the hero. (I'm convinced the Smart Bitches have it spot on - romances are no longer just about the heroine and her journey, they are more about the hero too these days.) I really liked Aaron, he sounds like the kind of person I'd want in my life. He was independent, mature, thoughtful, just aggressive enough, intelligent and patient. Brilliant and sexy to boot. He had no qualms about giving up his entire life, even his country, to follow his passion for the sea. The

Awal cerita sih kurang menarik. Sempat mengira tokoh hero adalah Raoul Trechaud, putra Marquise dari Perancis tapi ternyata salah besar!! Brien dijodohkan secara paksa dengan Raoul oleh ayahnya yang tidak begitu akrab dengannya selama 5 tahun terakhir sejak kematian putri sulung dan istri tercintanya. Mulanya Brien menolak dan sempat terpesona oleh ketampanan Raoul, tapi tanpa sengaja dia mendengar pembicaraan Raoul dengan temannya dan terbongkarlah sifat jahat aslinya. Karena tidak mau menikah ...more

A good story with nice twists. Just if someone else has written it. Some people have good imagination but not so good at writing in down for others to read.

Why every time she had to explain a feeling she had to emphasize that it's not in a sexual way? I mean I get it.

The storyline seemed interesting at first, but after that it got simply boring. I didn't like Brien or Aaron. The plot became too predictable. The only chracter i liked was Dyso.
