I expected some of the plots to be interwoven; the 'accidents', Denton and Justine's arguments and perhaps Justine's involvement in the duel, view spoiler [ but to then have Giles return from the dead to reveal that his father was also plotting, and that Justine's brother was actually a good guy in need of rescuing… it all became a bit too much. On top of this, the plots behind Sebastien's banishment and his father's accidents were just too ridiculous to believe. Sebastian slept with a women he thought was a whore but he was told that it was Giles wife. Second the Romance: I would have liked an epilogue.
Apr 27, Rach rated it it was ok. I usually like Johanna Lindsey's books for quick reads that draw me fully into the characters' lives. There was something about this one that just didn't work-I never liked the characters that much and wasn't rooting for them.
Feb 06, Liz rated it it was ok. I had not read a Johanna Lindsey book in a long time and I was really excited about reading this one. It was dissapointing. To me, it started slow and it just did not get any better. I made myself finish it but was skipping some of it along the way. I liked the characters but they did not click in my opinion.
Oct 31, Richelle rated it really liked it Shelves: I listened to this one and really enjoyed it. An exiled son that has to return home to try and figure out what is going on with his father. Is someone trying to kill him? The last part of the book was a complete twist that I had no idea that it would happen like that. Highly recommend it! View all 17 comments. Oct 25, Zel Polev rated it it was ok. I feel like I read this book with narrowed eyes.
I think the romance was a bit clumsy. I felt as if the author just dictated that this is a romance without actually developing it. Nevertheless, I went along with it. However, the actual writing was unconvincing. I felt like their sexual attraction with each other was equated with romance. I didn't really feel any chemistry in their conversations.
It was such a shame because I liked it in the beginning. However, what followed wasn't good. I wasn't I feel like I read this book with narrowed eyes.
I wasn't a fan of the heroine after she displayed how woefully unprepared she was to deal with the situation. She hired the hero to fix the assassination attempts but gets in his way. What was her recourse if she wasn't going to let him question the suspects? The hero straightens her out after she bungles something up and the matter is solved, except he just blew a chance.
That is not to say the hero is reasonable either. Just because she bungles something up, doesn't mean he is the authority on logic. His scheme with the marriage and actually acting on it was questionable. The way she lost her virginity made me narrow my eyes. This cannot possibly romantic to anybody.
Somehow, the author sneaks in that they actually like each other and I'm just supposed to go along with it so I do. However, it's a pretty poor execution and doesn't endear me to the story. I think this novel would have benefitted greatly with insights from the characters.
The hero is pretty gruff and is a bitter man. I had the sense that he isn't one for politeness but it doesn't mean he is savage.
However, he walks a thin line between being an unreasonable jerk or just an honest man. I think he could have played off his jerkiness with teasing.
However, that is too much conjecture and the vagueness opens up the interpretation to the hero being just a plain jerk. I think there was an interesting dynamic to be explored there. Being disowned by his family, the hero didn't have to abide by the rules of polite society. He lived on his own and made a life of himself outside of his aristocratic upbringing.
I think this aspect of his life could have been more explicit instead of just his asshole actions. I think the insight to his not really expecting payment and just not mentioning it to rile the heroine up could have improved his character. It would have made him tolerable and rootable.
I also found the story a bit scattered. I didn't really care for the archduke and the runaway duchess story. The payoff wasn't great. Unless it is setting up future books, I didn't really see the point in it. I think the book had a new life breathed into it when the dead friend resurfaced. However, that was near the end of the book and the majority of the pages weren't great. I also didn't like the hypocritical end.
Maggie was urging Sebastian to forgive Giles for the whole affair. I just narrowed my eyes because this was the girl who blamed Sebastian for her sister's death. She had blamed him for the trickle down effect his accident caused. I just find it rich that when she isn't the hurt party, she can just dictate people who are deserving of blame and who are not. If Sebastian is wrong to hold Giles responsible for all the misery caused by the duel, then she was also wrong in blaming Sebastian for it in the beginning.
It's just convenient for her to declare Giles forgiven because she wasn't really affected in a negative way. She found out that her sister married Giles and had a son so she was fine. I just narrow my eyes whenever she gives out advice because I know she didn't follow it.
The story revolves around Maggie and Sebastian. Maggie was looking for Sebastian to solve the many accidents of Douglas. She is concerned that Denton and Juliette are causing the accidents. She thought Sebastian could help. She offered him money and despite his rule of never working for women, he accepted the job. He investigated. At the same time, they were exploring their carnal desires. Apparently, they fall in love but don't really say it. He eventually discovers his friend was still alive.
Giles tells him the story. His father was targetted for death. He amassed a large debt and he was already in debt to his friend.
He concocted a plan to dissolve those debts through guilt.
He planned to have his son die in a duel. It would appear that Sebastian would kill Giles. As a result, Douglas would feel guilty that his son killed his friend's son and would forgive the debts Cecil accrued. Juliette helped because it helped Denton. They figured Douglas would banish Sebastian and he did. Juliette was arrested. Denton is seeking divorce. Giles is raising his son. Douglas welcomes Sebastian back in his life. Maggie and Sebastian want to be married for real. When the whole affair came out, Douglas told Sebastian that he cared for him and welcomed his son back.
May 05, Caro rated it did not like it. Sebastian flees the country and starts working as a mercenary. One day a duke from Austria wants to hire him but since the job requires him to return to England, Seb refuses and gets locked up. After a few days he escapes. Some time passes and a woman wants to hire him. So he agrees. After coming home he finds out his brother now is -unhappily- married to Really strange After a long time of delays Seb talks to his father about the accidents and they are not caused by an attempt for his life.
Really weird sub-plot In all this time Sebastian acts like a very cold, harsh and heartless man who suddenly suggests to Maggie to pay him his fee with her body! Maggie is outraged but in the end still sleeps with him but keeps yelling at him and pushing him away.
He stays cold and indifferent. He waits for her to divorce him, but if she does, wants to marry her?. What do you want??? Guess only once Besides that fact the main characters lack any chemistry. The alias Raven is thrown around too much to make you believe Sebastian is a harsh and rigid man, but it only irritates. Oct 07, Anne Marie rated it liked it. The background is Sebastian Townsend gets in a duel with his best friend, Giles over sleeping with his supposed wife, Juliette.
Along comes Margaret, looking for someone called The Raven, who is Sebastian. The pretending works, and Sebastian at least is happy to see his grandmother, Abigail, but his father unfortunately is bedridden due to another accident. In time, Sebastian does talk with his father, to no avail, and he also becomes more enamored with Margaret.
On a side note, I have to mention that traveling from this area of England to London, Paris, and even Austria seems very quick given the time period.
Anyway, Sebastian does go back to England and realizes that he does love Margaret. Everything is straightened out after eleven years of family grudges I read this novel in two hours because it was so easy and light to fall into. Like a big old comforting marshmallow. The plot was simple enough, though I found that there were a number of facets to the plot that kept my interest and just stopped it being a completely cookie-cutter Regency Romance.
I do wish that the romance between Maggie and Sebastian had been more developed. Their lust was palpable but I never really felt their love.
It seemed to come from nowhere without any real foundation. I I read this novel in two hours because it was so easy and light to fall into. I did roll my eyes towards the end because I felt that there was so much promise with the plots but they were all thrown into one resolution together which made it all feel rushed and undignified.
I expected some of the plots to be interwoven; the 'accidents', Denton and Justine's arguments and perhaps Justine's involvement in the duel, view spoiler [ but to then have Giles return from the dead to reveal that his father was also plotting, and that Justine's brother was actually a good guy in need of rescuing… it all became a bit too much.
I understand that it is rare not to get a HEA in these books, but maybe a bit of resentment and animosity could have lingered to make it all realistic. An awkward hug here or there to show that while bridges had been rebuilt, it was still a rocky road to cross.
I enjoyed the reading and though I wish that it had been a little less Disney, though with a little more romance, it wasn't a bad read at all. Oct 30, Maria Griffo rated it really liked it. Sebastian slept with a women he thought was a whore but he was told that it was Giles wife. Giles tells him to meet him at the dueling rock at dawn.
Sebastian tells his father about it and forbids him to do this. But he disobeys his father and shows up any way and shoots Giles. He thought he killed his best friend and his father disowns him. So Sebastian leaves London sore to never return.
Margret's father dies and leaves Douglas, Sebastian father as this was the story of Sebastian and Margret. Margret's father dies and leaves Douglas, Sebastian father as her guardian. Douglas starts to have accidents and Maggie thinks someone is trying to kill him.
So Maggie takes of for Europe to fine Sebastian. She is told of a man that can accomplish anything so she goes to the Raven only to find out the Raven is Sebastian. He never takes a job from a women but Maggie was not going to take no for an answer and tells him to name a price and he does and he is shocked when he agrees. So back to London to see what is happening. In order to gain excess to his fathers estate they pretend they are married but there is something between them and will he learn the truth and help solve more then what he was hired her?
This is where the adventure begins with twist and turns and possible love and forgiveness. Jan 05, Sara rated it liked it Shelves: This book was okay. It wasn't terrible by any means. Sebastian and Margaret were great characters. They were great together, with good chemistry, and great apart. Their motives made sense. They had some fantastic scenes together.
The romance flowed together really well. However, some parts of the story were extremely convoluted. It seems like that's the direction Lindsey has gone, and I don't like it. Her books were better when they weren't so based on crazy, convoluted plots for the hero and her This book was okay.
Her books were better when they weren't so based on crazy, convoluted plots for the hero and heroine to deal with. It's like she doesn't believe in just having a simple boy-meets-girl story anymore, which is too bad.
As I said, this book was okay. It just wasn't one of her best novels. If you want something to just while the time away, it's worth it. And if you're a fan of Johanna Lindsey, it's a worthwhile read. It just wasn't one of my favorites. This is the second time I've read this and it's still SO good! I've made a decision. Good Lord, I'm so excited. I vow to name my future son-- should I be fortunate to have years from now-- as Sebastian.
But also for my never ending love for The Little Mermaid. Not that I'm fantasizing over my would-be son, given that I This is the second time I've read this and it's still SO good! Not that I'm fantasizing over my would-be son, given that I will name him just that, but damn, Sebs just gets through me, you know?
Oct 17, Jessica rated it liked it. This is really 3. The plot is so convoluted that even after finishing the book I don't really know what happened. That being said, I always like Johanna Lindsey and her characters. The Raven is a great hero, although at times cruel, which I don't approve of and am certainly not attracted to. Margaret is a strong heroine, especially for the era.
There were some unanswered questions that left me dissatisfied. But, if you want a fun read that doesn't require much of yo This is really 3. But, if you want a fun read that doesn't require much of you, this could be it Listened to this one via the Audible Romance Package. I'm glad I didn't spend a credit on it.
It was enjoyable to listen to. It started out strong, dragged in the middle and then wrapped up really quickly at the end. I found the twists in the plot to be both unexpected and anti-climatic.
The ending seemed abrupt to me. I would have liked an epilogue. The narration was good. Jul 19, Reba rated it it was ok. First day of vacation in Aruba. This book was just what I needed for a lazy day on the beach and beside the pool. Romance, some sex, a devilishly attractive leading man, a bit of a mystery, and best of all, the happy ending. Sometimes we need meat and vegetables, and sometimes we need cotton candy.
Thanks Johanna Lindsey for escapist cotton candy I needed. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
