a daughter nobility doing it and that s one massive anachronism too far for meI don t think this is a bad book not at all It still has the complex plotting and the good writing that I ve seen in the author s other work It s just that it was too unbelievable for me to eally get into When I ead books in this genre I sometimes stop and think What would Jane Austen s Elizabeth Bennet do And she definitely wouldn t have done anything the characters in this book didI ll give the author *Props For The Proper Spelling Of Arse But Must Point *for the proper spelling of arse but must point that outside of America it s knives and forks not forks and knivesIf you e fine with cross dressing heroines in your historical omances you ll probably eally enjoy this especially so if you don t stop and wonder how nobody noticed the man s voice was a woman s However it just wasn t my sort of book though I would strongly ecommend the others in the series Review copy provided by NetGalley The Lady Hellion is a prime example of the caricature historical omance novel It s also one of my most despised tropessecond chance omance This unbelievable plot has the heroine Lady Sophia Barnes as a spunky daring spinster who leads a double life as an aristocratic savior By night Sophia dresses as an man in order to scour brothels and investigate prostitute murders because hey the lady just wants to help women and the poor The eality is that Sophie considers herself unmarriageable after giving her virginity to a ake who pumped and dumped her Now she has channeled her pain and insecurity into being a daring do gooder The hero Damien insecurity into being a daring do gooder The hero Damien Viscount of uint has had feelings for Sophia since they shared kiss eons ago But he s an emotionally crippled man who thinks he s genetically cursed to go insane thereby he becomes an agoraphobic ecluse Now I like a tortured hero but one who is stron.

to ouse himself from his exiled stupor and challenge Lord Robert to a duel the manrouse himself from his exiled stupor and challenge Lord Robert to a duel the man had deflowered and idiculed Sophia for enjoying sex Damien validated Sophia s sensual and passionate nature Rejoice all around Like most omances miscommunication is the formulaic foundation to create obstacle and angst She was dealing with being uined and he was trying to make her jealous by proposing to another woman It all backfired with her acting stupid which left Damien heartbroken and thinking Sophia ejected him because he was damaged If these two had just talked openly to each other it would have saved them both years of unnecessary distance and heartbreak But that would have euired the author to come up with a plausible plotThis was not a badly written book just a idiculous premise for the historical time period and I wouldn t e ead it.
