I did not enjoy this book. 

From the high (but few) ratings this book received, I was looking forward to an emotional, captivating, and endearing love story. What I ended up with, however, was a well written but extremely boring, unromantic, and passionless tale about two characters I never fully connect with. 

This is a May-to-December romance, which I usually love, but the author wrote the 40-year-old hero, Edmond, as a brooding, cantankerous, and ailing old man. Frankly, 40 isn't that ol

Mixed feelings. Lots of frustration, with occasional glimmers of hope, and some very nice scenes. The hero is portrayed as a decrepit old man in many scenes. I liked the ending. Read this a long time ago.

Çok hoşuma gitti kitap, zevkle okudum :) Ama duygularını sürekli bastırmaları beni çıldırttı.. Ehh madem o kadar bastırdın sonra bir çırpıda nasıl Crispin'e gerçekleri söyledin... Asıl Crispin döndüğünde işler daha çok karışır uzar diye düşünüyodum tam tersi oldu hemen bitti kitap.. Ama onun dışında çok beğendim :)

Harlequin'in tarihi aşk romanlarından birini daha bitirmiş bulunuyorum.
Deborah Hale "Aşkı Sana Sakladım" kitabıyla tanıdığım ve kalemini sevdiğim bir yazardı ve bu kitabı, "Koruyucu Meleğim"i de onun imzası taşıdığı için aldım aslında konusunu bile okumamıştım ama ne yalan söyleyeyim orta derecede bir kitap geldi, çok çok beğendim diyemeyeceğim bir kitap oldu.

Şu blog hayatımda çok nadirdir bir kitabı beğenmeme durumum bu yüzden de okuyun diye de tavsiye

Fab May-December romance with all the angst about the age difference rampantly abundant. If you love that sort of thing, you will love this. The heroine has a steel backbone and not in the "plucky 1990s romance heroine" sense. The hero is not quite beta, but passionately literary and considerate. The plot gets a little bogged down about 2/3rds through and seemed like it was stretched in order to make a word count, but otherwise delectable enough that I will be breaking my resolution not to parti ...more

YORUM DETAYI İÇİN
Kitaptaki edisyonda çok fazla hata vardı. Hatta bir cümlenin yarısı yoktu. Bir de sonunda çok hızlı gelişen olaylar biraz yadırgattı kitabı..

Bunlar dışında beğenerek okudum. Konusu gerçekten çok güzel. Seviyorum bu yazarı.

Ein schnell wegzulesender, spannender Liebesroman mit sympatischen Charakteren. Konnte ihn schon nach den ersten Zeilen kaum noch aus der Hand legen, obwohl das so gar nicht meine übliche Lektüre ist.

Ich hatte allerdings die deutsche Ausgabe "Lockende Versuchung" - Teil 1 des Historical-Specials "Verheiratet mit einem Fremden" -, aber keine Lust, diese Edition hier nachzutragen.

Very sweet book. A bit slow moving as the story builds, but I liked it. Would have liked an epilogue.

Loved this book. Because theirs is a marriage in name only, there really isn't any sex till the end. Really enjoyed it!
