Lina | 5563 comments Thanks everyone!! This is what I ended up with for Fraser's birthday (he's a big fan of board games - so I made it into a sort of Snakes & ladders set):



The last one was supposed to be a star, but I stuffed up the piping, so it looks like a weird spider-looking thing instead, lol!

message 22: by Lina (new) - rated it 4 stars

Lina | 5563 comments Thank you :-) I had fun doing them, but they're definitely not Pinterest worthy. Fraser got a big kick out of handing them out in class though.

I'm ready to start the book now :-)

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments Questions for chapter 1-6

1-Demon is the only Cynster so far who has no intention getting married .How long before he breaks his vow? By the end of chapter 6 it seems it'll be real soon.Do we know why he is called Demon?

2-Realizing that rider is a woman only because of the shape of her bottom was priceless . If I ask my husband about how a woman looks like the first thing he'll describe is her butt!!! Are all men like this? or is it just Demon and my husband?

3-Is Flick her nickname?? and not only a name she used for the stable? I don't like it!

4-It doesn't seem there is any attraction on Felicity's side to Dillon .Do you think there is anything on his side?

5-The story that Dillon had given her had too many holes , why on earth she had believed it?!Do you think Ickley has been killed? what do you think about mystery so far? interesting ?

6-I know nothing what so ever of horses racing betting and stuff like , I couldn't follow the conversation Demon had with the other owners .how about you?

7-He thought " From now on , he'd lead and she could follow." Just a little bit later she said " come one" and he followed . I'm totally enjoying their interaction so far. Also the fact that he was jealous of his horse , LOL!!Do you think she can hold it much longer or is she going to be one those of ladies?

8-Ah rain and an empty cottage , a recipe for being comprised and a forced marriage , I hope it doesn't go that way! do you think it will? The mouse and scared female a bit too cliche I think !

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 6062 comments Susan's Answers to ShoSho's Questions for ch 1-6

1. Don't know why he's called Demon. I want to know though. It seems that all the previous Cynster men had nicknames that I figured would be cause of their roguish behavior but it turns out it was cause of something else. And yes, it seems like he's already changing his mind about marriage. I wonder how Flick will see this.

2. My Hubs is an ass man too. It must be a guy thing ;)

3. I'm curious how she got the nickname Flick. It's kind of sassy.

4. I wonder if dillon thinks she's attracted to him cause she always helps him. But I don't think it's there.

5. Maybe Flick was just so overcome with worry that she didn't notice the holes? I like the idea of the mystery. Kind of gives it a mafia feel with the whole syndicate thing. Or is that just me projecting my secret love of all things mafia to this? LOL

6. I followed it but didn't understand it all. I'm not much in horse races or horses in general.

7. My guess is that she'll fight the attraction cause she's going to think its part of the plan to spy on the Bletchley guy. And of course Demon is not going to be upfront with her about his feelings so it's going to take a while.

8. I liked the mouse and her being scared. She comes across strong and not afraid to be seen spying, but her fear of the mouse made her vulnerable and more girl's. At least it did for me. I also hope they aren't forced to marry cause of being caught in the cabin. That wouldn't make either of them happy regardless of how their feelings are going.

Susan (susayq ~) (susayq) | 6062 comments Questions for chapters 7-12

9. Well! There was almost a forced marriage here. Would you have guessed that she would be able to head that off like that? What did you think about Demon being upset that he didn't get to marry her?

10. I think Stephanie Laurens did an amazing job writing the dance and kiss between Flick and Demon. I could feel the magic. Do you think she'll agree without a reason?

11. She wants to marry for love. Do you think she'll be able to get the words from him?

12. Demon turned down a night with the ladies to get back to Flick and she wasn't there. Do you think she's on the right track?

13. "Fate. Disguised as Lord Selbourne." will this precipitate him having to say the words cause they'll be forced? Will she weasel her way out again?

ShoSho  (shoshost) | 12263 comments 9 that was one of best scenes in the book.I fell in love with her, she is one of the best heroines in HR romance . And demon is pouting haha.It was was a great way for him to understand how much he wants her.

10.no she is too smart and confidence to say yes without a reason

11.i hope so but none of the Cynster men have said it before, so I don't think he will say it either.

12.she's got him , completely and totally so I'd say she is on the right track

13.he doesn't know her so it doesn't matter that he saw her. I thought he said fate because it made them stop, I might be wrong.


Kit★ (xkittyxlzt) | 1416 comments Wait, Vane said 'I love you' to Patience, didn't he? Or was it Richard who said it to Catriona? One of 'em said it! And I know it wasn't Devil, lol.
