it is totally okay to make fun of me for enjoying these

Fluffy read while I was off with the flu (download from the public library) - not bad for the genre, interesting characters, but I wanted to horsewhip nearly everyone involved more than usual.

I liked some sections of this novel better than others. It wasn't that I didn't like the characters, I really liked the rector. But there were aspects of the novel that I just didn't understand. Such as disclosing her history to all and sundry. I missed a little cohesion, but none-the-less enjoyed myself.

It's been a long time since I read this, but I liked it so much I made a note to find more books by this author...

A couple of gripes: didn't think he was such a rake to begin with, the chick's rather silly with the self-put-upon angst, and some scenes made me roll my eyes; it was a bit exasperating, especially near the end.

I have read this book three times, at least. I love the simplicity of it and the rationale of the troublesome parts when defense does not necessarily come by killing, but by logic.

In parts delightful, tearjerking and convoluted, I enjoyed the book although the hero could've been faster to recognize his feelings. *g*

We live in the Adelaide Hills of South Australia, in a beautiful lush valley full of apple, pear and cherry orchards. We moved here a couple of years back, escaping from the city and it’s just gorgeous. The property is small, only five acres, but we have room for two small noisy boys, three dogs, two cats and several woolly things masquerading a environmentally friendly lawnmowers.
