really liked it
bookshelves: romance
Read in June, 2010

This is sort of how the plot of this book went:

- *Random person dies*
- "You are going to marry me."
- "There is no way I am going to marry you, so get away from me!"
- "I am going to MAKE you marry me." (Hotness inserted here)
- "Er, wtf? Back off!"
- "Ooh, I smell a challenge." >:) *begin seduction tactics* (Insert make-out scenes)
- "Are you going to marry me?"
- "Nuh-uh, I am going to go to Egypt!"
- "What about now?" *making-out, etc.*
- ...Oh wow, maybe I will just have sex with this guy and then leave...
- ...I shall never admit I have feelings for her...
- *more making-out and fooling around*
- "I will not have sex with you until you promise to marry me!"
- "Psh. Lies." *making-out*
- "Get away from me, Woman!"
- ...Maybe I do want to marry him...
- ...What if she won't marry me?...
- *Goes to tell him and ends up making-out with him*
- "I don't believe you want to marry me, because you just want to have sex with me!"
- "No, I really want to marry you!"
- "Stop lying to me!"
- (Repeat previous steps as needed.)

FINALLY they get married and after that there is about an equal amount of shmexy sex scenes, one or the other driving each other crazy by running off and almost getting hurt, actual falling in love (only on of them will ever admit it) and that little bit of heavily foreshadowed murder mystery that I guessed since like the first chapter (really, that is barely exaggerated at all). Okay, I lied. There are way more sex scenes than anything else in the second half of the book. But you know what? I love this stuff. The characters are real, though they are totally insane and silly, and for a historical romance there was not much damsel in distress and more guy freaking out when his damsel wouldn't stay at home like a good girl (which I find hilarious). And it was pretty hot, even if the overprotective, egotistical guy and the reluctant, adventurous virgin girl are not very original concepts. Seriously, though, how many interesting historical romances are you going to find out there? This one is not bad.

It was your typical romance with mystery included ( although how could you not know who the Villian was from moment one!)but is is very well written and it IS A ROMANCE after all!!!!! It gives all that is needed to keep you reading!
