Aму Amazing review Kathleen! :) It's nice to finally hear about a protagonist that isn't - "She gets out of the shower and her hair dries immaculately curled." (My way of saying she's not perfect LOL!)

Kathleen So true, Little Lamb! A real live woman, not a mannequin or a model. This is definitely a Plain Jane romance -- but she has character and is clever. Thanks for the note!

Jill I'm glad I put aside the time to read your review, Kathleen - a)it's a biggun and b)it's worth reading.

And I agree that though there were possibly plot contrivances I think CM still managed to convince me they weren't! :)
She's an enormously talented writer.

I loved the realistic first love scene. Yes, it was a bit of a let-down after all that time, yet I don't want the expected or contrived.

Robert and Oliver are both lefties. But so is Sebastian! Hence, the name of the series Brothers Sinister. Sinister comes from the Latin meaning 'left'.

Kathleen I know, Jill, it's sooo long! Kudos to you for even skimming it tonight. I got carried away, couldn't figure out what to cut, and was on timeline.

Yes, Milan's plot contrivances are partly credible, I agree. She is fairly convincing. And yes, a superb writer!

Like you, I rather appreciated the realistic wedding night. It was only mildly disappointing, and Milan made up for that with realism, and a yummy morning after. Plus, I like to be surprised. :-)

I wondered if Sebastian was left-handed, too. I assumed he would be, but couldn't recall reading that anywhere. Love the Latin, Jill!

Anyhow, thanks for the recommendation. What a lovely lovely story!

Ps. I hope you're relaxing with a glass of port and a dark chocolate truffle. Or whatever you fancy to merry things up!

No skimming friend, I read each word! :)

You're welcome, Kathleen! I thought you'd appreciate this story.

Well, it's only 3.00pm Monday here. So a little early to start with the port. The dark choc is another matter... ;)
I'm just about to get in and do my dishes and clean up the kitchen. Ugh! The cooking and eating are the easy parts... the dishes though are a pain!

Hope you enjoy what's left of your night, Kathleen!

Kathleen Jill, you're a wonder. Cooking, baking, cleaning up (ugh) and reading my epistle. It may be only 3:00, but wine might be in order! Especially since you read the whole review! I'm esteemed and delighted, my friend.
