I loved loved loved this book Sarah MacLean has an amazingly enjoyable writing style and quirky sense of humor. Just one little niggle, though I really hoped that Sera would somehow also get a happy end.
Will that be addressed in a later book? Swetha the next book is not about the talbot sisters its about the duke of warnick but i really hope sera gets her own book.

Jun 19, Daniella rated it did not like it. There will be spoilers. And cursing. Lots of it. I'm a very unforgiving reader. My GR friends know this. I don't know about you, but I have a very low tolerance for assholes who can't respect and trust the heroine.
I've always adhered to the belief that if you can't tolerate a man's bullshit in real life, you shouldn't tolerate it in fiction. And that's why I hate King. I hate him so much I want to go all Wednesday Addams on him. King, our "hero" scoffs , may not be the worst asshole I've Warning: King, our "hero" scoffs , may not be the worst asshole I've met in Romancelandia, but he's definitely up there on the list. Let me give you a run-through of the shitfuckery that he's done in the novel: The most damage he's done was attempting to leave Sophie to fend for herself, and telling her that she was uninteresting and stupid.
I found these to be justified under the circumstances; they started out as enemies, and unkind words were bound to be exchanged. I was only mildly annoyed, but was still hopeful that the hero wouldn't turn out to be such a motherfucking cretin. I was wrong. And you know how King responded? He seduced her. Okay, sure, so they didn't do the deed. King merely "gave her pleasure" with his magical fingers eew, sorry but why the hell would any gentleman do that?
Knowing that he had no plans for the woman? He wanted to have revenge on him, by making him think that he was going to marry someone so unsuitable for the role of the duchess. Let me ask you, wouldn't you find that offensive?
Well, Sophie did. And then this amazing conversation happened: You did it for you. It works for both of us. Apparently, King was so furious with his father because the old man didn't approve of his former love, Lorna. And when that was brought up during dinner with the father, King implied that Sophie meant less to him than Lorna.
Oblivious to her thoughts, the duke continued, goading his son. They had a row. King apologised and admitted that he knew that he was being an ass but he couldn't help it. WTF King shared his sob story about Lorna. King said this: Not tonight. Not ever. Sophie avoided King. King couldn't control himself so he sought Sophie out. WTF This happened: He understood, his gaze turning predatorial.
He, the hunter. She, the prey. I want you to stay here. I want to keep you here, at the center of this labyrinth. King proposed they have sex. They almost had sex. King stopped at the last minute because he couldn't do it. King and Sophie finally had sex. King didn't say anything about marrying her at this point. Sophie's father caught them. King misunderstood the situation and despite Sophie's desperate pleas , proceeded to humiliate her and called her a gold-digger.
Pain flashed in her blue eyes, and he almost believed it. You wanted to trap me. She shook her head. I swear. King looked to his future father-in-law. King continued to treat her like shit. Sophie decided she had enough and left.
King realised his mistake. King found Sophie and apologised to her. The End.

The Rogue Not Taken had me laughing, crying, and clenching my hands in fists of outrage because Sophia and her sisters grabbed hold of my heart from the start and never let go. And when you add a roguish scoundrel like King to the mix, things become fanning mys Full review now posted And when you add a roguish scoundrel like King to the mix, things become fanning myself interesting, to say the least!
Her only choice is to flee London, vowing to start a new life far from the aristocracy. When King discovers stowaway Sophie, however, the journey becomes anything but boring. Or More? But carriages bring close quarters, dark secrets, and unbearable temptation, making opposites altogether too attractive. From the first page to the last, The Rogue Not Taken is a delight to read!
I can promise you this, dear readers of my review… this is going to be a fabulous series!!! In appreciation I'm giving them an honest review.

With their belief that they are better than others and the lazy way they live their lives, they do not sound nice. I do love reading historical romance, but get very frustrated with them too. In this case my eye was twitching when a Duke had the power to ruin a whole family because his pride was hurt. Obviously, these things happen in modern times too Sophie is the youngest daughter of a very scandalous family.
Her father, a newly made Earl, was a coal miner by trade. The gossip is that he acquired his position in a game of cards. Not even his five daughters know the truth. Besides the questionable inheritance, the daughters also seem to attract gossip. One of the daughters supposedly trapped a Duke into marriage, and three are betrothed to unsuitable men. Sophie is the plain, boring and unfun one who doesn't want anything to do with London and the aristocracy.
At a party, Sophie defends her sister She decides to escape the party and on her retreat a man falls practically in her lap. King has a reputation. He's quite happy with it and it serves his purposes well. While escaping from a Lady's bed chamber After introductions are made and insults have been flung, King declines Sophie's requests for help and thinks that's the end of it.
It's only the beginning. For quite a lot of the story, both Sophie and King butt heads. They don't particularly like each other and King has a very bad habit of insulting Sophie and then regretting it.
The first half of the story dragged for me a little. I wasn't sucked in like I normally am with a Sarah MacLean novel. There were funny parts and interesting parts, but I started to get impatient with the couple. I wanted to get to the bottom of their issues and understand their history. The second half was much better. My emotions were all over the shop. One moment there was a tear in my eye because Sophie's feelings were hurt, then I kept crying because King does something extra sweet and then two pages later give or take , I wanted to punch his head in.
These were all great though, because my heart was pumping and my feelings were engaged. The second half also had some steamy scenes too. I really enjoyed The Rogue Not Taken especially the characters and the scenery depicted. The love story ended up being sweet and I smiled at the twist that came when King is at home visiting his father.
I can't wait to see what's next in the series. To see more of my reviews, fashion, food and pervathons View all 28 comments. Because the truth was that women in Britain in did not have options.
They had the path upon which they tread.
Upon which they were forced to tread. Upon which they were made to feel grateful they were forced to tread. Did King's comme 3. Did King's comments sometimes hit too close to meanness? Yes, but I liked how the author internally showed his remorse at times to what he had said. Also, I complain enough about insta-love that I won't stop myself from acknowledging and enjoying a couple who don't know each other and are a bit naturally porcupine-ish, and therefore act in a more natural progression way.
Sophie's feelings of not belonging will probably find many a kindred spirit in our more book loving community and I felt for her. She, of course, wasn't perfect with her feeling alone and out place making her even more contemptuous of aristocracy society and giving her a touch of better and above it all.
I found her immaturity with her idealistic views and memories of her hometown more annoying at times but the girl was lonely and feeling like a misfit and if it hadn't been dragged out so long, I probably wouldn't even be mentioning it now.
She pursed her lips at that, her gaze setting longingly on the steaming bath. Somehow, she believed it, nodding and throwing back the coverlet to step out of bed. King, for me, didn't really grab my attention outside of his interactions with Sophie; he came to life through her. His self-loathing was overdone and dragged on way too long. He becomes a super baby and creates an angst segment that was supposed to provide the ever present and more often than not tiresome overblown angst-y climax romance ending.
The scene he talks about wanting, a romantic engagement in the Minotaur garden, would have been immensely better; these two already had their contentious moments, didn't need more. This couple's repertoire was on key for me but in the second half, I was waiting for the development of feelings to catch up, it didn't quite fully make it there to my satisfaction. There was a bathtub scene that was full of tension but the sexual aspect was slightly lacking and I think this was due to the emotional aspects not being fully developed.
I didn't like the life and death situation to show a character how much they really do love someone and the milkmaid lost love storyline, the reason our hero can't ever love again, was handled a bit clumsy.
These authors build up these crazy family betrayal storylines 15yrs!
Spend the night grappling with that and then admit to yourself in the morning that you love someone and marry them in a week or proper banns reading time, depending on what type of story you're in.
And this probably isn't a popular opinion but you all, my god am I dying for Seraphine's Sophie's sister story.
The dark deep emotion that I'm thinking and hoping! At all. View all 34 comments. Dec 29, Naomi rated it did not like it. View 1 comment. Apr 03, Natalie rated it it was ok Shelves: I'm giving this 2. But I can't give it any more because King was a raging asshole.
He hurt Sophie so much, he was so cruel and callous with his easy words, and every time he apologized, he cut her two new wounds. He was cruel to her about her appearance, her personality, her family, her dreams, her life, her reputation, everything. And he never groveled or apologized sufficiently imo, although I don I'm giving this 2. And he never groveled or apologized sufficiently imo, although I don't know how you can sufficiently make up for that. I loved Sophie, she was headstrong, independent, brave and moral.
I liked the epilogue and I did like some of the sexy stuff but I can't on my conscience give this one more because Sophie really deserved better. View all 4 comments. Aug 02, Viri rated it really liked it Shelves: Que hace que adore a sus personajes como no tienen idea. Es un canalla encantador de esos que tanto me derriten como nieve al sol. Sus acciones iban con su personalidad, sus sentimientos y emociones fueron coherentes y la profundidad que no se vislumbraba en un principio fue pieza clave.
