    This one is my second favorite of the series, with England s perfect hero being my 1 What I liked Saint was reported to be a rake and actually acted as one That unfortunately, is not always the case with romances He was the head of the orphanage s board that Emma wanted to involve herself with and he actually used his advantage to get Emma in his bed That is not as bad as it seems, since Emma was far from unwilling And he not only blackmailed her he coaxed and seduced and charmed her but This one is my second favorite of the series, with England s perfect hero being my 1 What I liked Saint was reported to be a rake and actually acted as one That unfortunately, is not always the case with romances He was the head of the orphanage s board that Emma wanted to involve herself with and he actually used his advantage to get Emma in his bed That is not as bad as it seems, since Emma was far from unwilling And he not only blackmailed her he coaxed and seduced and charmed her but ultimately found himself charmed as well.Emma was the good, quiet and unassuming young lady that no one took seriously not even her close friends actually believed in her abilities But Emma decides to get involved with the children in the orphanage and nothing can push her off track Even if she has to resort to violence gasp she is determined to have her way And she ll also teach a lesson to Saint while she s on it.This one had a slightly darker feeling than The Rake and both Emma and Saint had hidden depths as characters I really liked their conversations, and how Saint slowly came to not only lust for Emma, but care for her as well The scene where she storms in his house when she found out his evil plans about the orphanage and he instictively opens his arms in response was worth to methan a thousand words.The only reason I rated it with 4 stars instead of 5 was the last 50 70 pages which I found were too sweet compared to the rest of the story and Saint s character and personally, I have a dislike for extreme sweetness Other than that, this book was awesome and a definite MUST read for romance fans

    Utterly forgettable.Do you know how I can be so sure Because I read this a few years ago and accidentally picked it up again, not realizing I had read it before It started to seem vaguely familiar when the heroine kidnapped the no, wait, I can t call him a hero I will give it this much The title is apt The Marquis is a horrible, heartless, unconscionable person who I do not believe for a second truly redeemed himself in this book I don t know why the heroine was drawn to him I never wa Utterly forgettable.Do you know how I can be so sure Because I read this a few years ago and accidentally picked it up again, not realizing I had read it before It started to seem vaguely familiar when the heroine kidnapped the no, wait, I can t call him a hero I will give it this much The title is apt The Marquis is a horrible, heartless, unconscionable person who I do not believe for a second truly redeemed himself in this book I don t know why the heroine was drawn to him I never was Dark heroes are tough to pull off I confess to enjoying them when it works, but there are a few ingredients missing from the recipe in this book First, the Marquis didn t have any particularly good reason to be a jerk There was some drivel about his parents sprinkled in there, but it really didn t amount to muchthan arrogance, determination to die young because his father did, and disdain for women, children, and most men for that matter Second, the Marquis had no redeeming qualities whatsoever Dark heroes need to have a crack in their facade and it has to be a facade it can t go to the core of them I felt like this darkness went to the core of the Marquis, at least in part because he didn t have redeeming qualities, and when it goes to the core, it can t be reformed This guy was a real, honest to goodness class A a e He had no principles at all He set out to seduce the heroine with no qualms about ruining her or hurting her He just wanted her He set out to destroy a house full of orphans because they were inconvenient His change in the end was admittedly only because he wanted the heroine, and even then I didn t believe he would have changed at all, even on a skin deep level Third, the heroine should not be randomly attracted to the hero for no particular reason whatsoever other than it s convenient to the plot She has to see something in him something the reader, too, can see Or she at least has to be set inescapably in his orbit There was no real reason the heroine needed to interact with the Marquis at all in this book To make a long story short too late There is a fine line between a dark hero and a total jerk Which side of the line any given character falls on may be largely a matter of opinion, but I find myself astounded at the 4 star ratings on this book This guy was horrible, and he turned this into one of those trite romances where the heroine saves the hero, making him something completely different from what he was in the first place, in order to make him an acceptable love Real change has to come from the inside, not the outside.I do not recommend

    Rating Clarification 4.5 starsI loved this book so much, the two main characters were so amazing and showed great character depth The only fault I did find was that the ending was too rushed, I would have liked to seeI felt like it took away from the story, but either way I still loved it

    Reread one of my favorite historical romances The heroine is one of the best and the hero definitely one of the top five This is the second book in the Lessons for Love Trilogy and it s great to be able to revisit with the previous characters in the second and third books The only thing I would say is that the book could really use an Epilogue yes we kind of get one when reading the third and final book, because Evie and Michael show up again quite frequently, but still would be nic Reread one of my favorite historical romances The heroine is one of the best and the hero definitely one of the top five This is the second book in the Lessons for Love Trilogy and it s great to be able to revisit with the previous characters in the second and third books The only thing I would say is that the book could really use an Epilogue yes we kind of get one when reading the third and final book, because Evie and Michael show up again quite frequently, but still would be nice to have it in the same bookWritten January 2010

    There are some books that I ve enjoyed so much that I ve read and reread them again and again through the years This is one of them.It s not a perfect book by any means Indeed, the ending is way too rushed and I longed for Evie to stand up for herself against her family, but it has a magic that makes me love it regardless There are a lot of rakes running around historical romance, but even after reading widely in the genre, Saint still sticks out in my mind He is absolutely perfect He start There are some books that I ve enjoyed so much that I ve read and reread them again and again through the years This is one of them.It s not a perfect book by any means Indeed, the ending is way too rushed and I longed for Evie to stand up for herself against her family, but it has a magic that makes me love it regardless There are a lot of rakes running around historical romance, but even after reading widely in the genre, Saint still sticks out in my mind He is absolutely perfect He starts the book as a complete jerk He makes no bones about the fact that he has no interest in the heroine beyond his attraction to her He s rude and wicked and doesn t care who he insults But somehow he has this spark underneath it all that draws Evie and the reader in despite it His naughtiness is absolutely delicious and when he eventually starts to change his ways and fall for Evie it absolutely wonderful to watch The sexual tension was delightful and I adored reading about a hero who acted that way just because, without any hidden tortured reason.Evie was also a great character My heart broke for her when she realized that her friends didn t see her true strength anythan her family did Throughout the book Evie is constantly trying to prove to herself that she can accomplish something worthwhile That she is useful asthan just a marriageable woman Saint s careless disregard of her goals is what leads them to cross swords and it s absolutely wonderful when they finally do.There s a part where Evie takes charge and makes Saint listen to her that is really the moment when the book turns excellent Evie proves how strong and daring she really is and we start to see the vulnerability that Saint usually hides behind his cynicism This is when they both finally start to see the person behind the persona and from that moment on their relationship was magic to watch.Even though I understood Evie s loyalty to her family, I needed somethingsome scene showing why Evie thought her brother was a good man to make me understand her actions Because I found myself incredibly frustrated on her behalf She brings up the many ways she could rebel and make her brother look bad, but she never does I just couldn t understand why she didn t Because really, her brother was a complete jerk This book is very character driven There are no real outside distractions to take away from watching Evie and Saint change and fall in love It was awesome because they were absolutely perfect together It ll be a while until the next reread, but I m already looking forward to it

    Now here s a bad boy hero that any reader who likes the bad boy hero will love The Marquis of St Aubyn spits out these verbal jabs to male and female alike and doesn t care who he offends and it s like this nearly to the end of the book Finally a historical that doesn t use filler details to build tension and add pages to a story A solid 90% of this book is about the Marquis and Evelyn Ruddick, the woman set on showing him the error of his ways and what a fine series of lessons it all turn Now here s a bad boy hero that any reader who likes the bad boy hero will love The Marquis of St Aubyn spits out these verbal jabs to male and female alike and doesn t care who he offends and it s like this nearly to the end of the book Finally a historical that doesn t use filler details to build tension and add pages to a story A solid 90% of this book is about the Marquis and Evelyn Ruddick, the woman set on showing him the error of his ways and what a fine series of lessons it all turns out to be Book 2 in Enoch s Lessons in Love series tells the story of St Aubyn who isn t a scarred hero like other jaded rakes, he s just someone who s always treated people as disposable because his position allowed it The way he spoke to people reminded me of Sebastien Lord St Vincent in Lisa Kleypas The Devil in Winter Evelyn Ruddick made a pact with her friends that they would each find an unscrupulous man and teach him to respect women No one would dare take on St Aubyn because he brought scandal wherever he went but Evelyn was determined Characters from book 1 as well as from Enoch s A Matter of Scandal also make an appearance, especially nice to see were Lord Dare and Georgiana who continue on much as they did in their story No lovey dovey mush here The sexual tension is exceptional all because of how the hero whispers his sexually laced blackmailing threats to her in public and she has no choice but to concede to him otherwise he ll cause a public scandal The verbal banter is very well done making a mini movie in your head of these two at loggerheads with each other.The ending needed another page or so but overall it s a fantastic read for anyone who likes the I hate you but I love you dammit I can t live without you relationship
