really inventive There is adventure, romance, scandal , but also there this is a story about the power of love Jack is in need of finding peace concerning his mother s death and his fear of loving anyone, lest he lose them Sophie learns to step out of her parents shadow and take up for herself I loved the way the author built the sexual tension Hot kisses, then a slow progression from there Having to keep the romance a secret also added a element of suspense.I also loved Sophie s Aunt Eunice She was a lady way ahead of her time If you love historical romances or just any kind of romance, this is one to try out I ll give this one an A Jack what are you doing Claiming my kiss I deserve to be rewarded for my valiant efforts to see you She returned a pert reply Your FOOLHARDY efforts, you

valiant efforts to see you She returned a pert reply Your FOOLHARDY efforts, you mean You need to abandon this absurd obsession with kissing me Impossible You have the softest, most desirable mouth I have ever encountered KISSING clears throat ANYWAY The book We must discuss the book Not the extensive and extremely described kissing that happens in said book innocent face This is Book Two in Jordan s Legendary Lovers series In which Katharine declares that she and all her siblings and cousins will each emulate a legendary lover in history, and therefore find their true loves The first book, Princess Charming, covered her brother Ash as Prince Charming wooing the horse breeder Maura the Cinderella This novel focuses on a retelling of Shakespeare s Romeo and Juliet But with a much happier ending, of course.Lord Jack is a devilish rogue of the highest order, widely famed for his charm and his audacity with females Katharine, his beloved cousin, has informed him that he is destined to live out the legendary love story of Romeo and Juliet, and informs him that his true love is her schoolmate, Sophie Fortin.Jack scoffs at Katharine s ridiculous machinations to shove him and Sophie together Everyone knows the Wildes and the Fortins have been engaged in a blood feud these last three generations And Jack is far from willing to give his heart to anyone But when Jack meets Sophie at a masquerade ball, sparks fly, and the two star crossed lovers can t help but hope for a chance to be together.I like Jordan s books I find them charming, sweet, and fun with the added bonus of being smart vocabulary wise not plot wise This is a rather silly book, as are 99% of romances Again, I want to suggest that people studying for SAT vocabulary tests read this book and Princess Charming in order to bone up on their personal lexicon It certainly haskissing than that stuffy old SAT vocab guide.UPSIDES Great vocabulary use by Ms Jordan Well written, not cardboard A fun, sweet, charming story full of rakes, rogues, lost princes, masquerade balls, shocking abductions, elderly aunts who are troublemakers, and shocking secrets about the past Highly descriptive and enjoyable kissing scenes Extra points No, I m not talking about sex, I m talking about KISSING Jack s secret tragic past and how hard both he and Sophie have to struggle with it , his little dormouse pet that he had as a boy, and his constant hunger as a result of past starvation are all very interesting andor less well done Not so much his constant hunger, because although living through a starvation period WILL cause you to hoard food and eatthan your body needs as Jordan portrays in this novel she decides not to include the weight gain that usually follows these measures Like Kelley Armstrong in the Omens series, she wants to have a leading man with a tragic starvation past but not have him possess anything but a perfect sculpted body Highly unrealistic Another highlight was Jack s frequent and anonymous donations to Arundel House, which cares for unwed mothers Sophie also has a connection there as she is supporting her unmarried pregnant maid out of her own pocket A plus When Jack does something uncouth view spoiler abducting Sophie and taking her to his birth country of Navartania hide spoiler , Sophie reacts appropriately and actually makes Jack apologize and grovel before she forgives him This is a blessed relief in a sea of romance novels in which the heroine will go along with anything the hero chooses to do, no matter how traitorousWhy should I be grateful to find you going behind my back, making decisions for me without my knowledge or consent You intentionally deceived me DOWNSIDES The silliness of the second half of the novel, in which Ms Jordan takes us on all kinds of rather bizarre twists and turns to make sure getting together isn t too easy for our MCs Some of the hoops they had to jump through were pretty contrived It seems Jordan cannot write a book without some sort of line about force feeding Sophie ate sparingly but she did eat, perhaps because she feared he would decide to hand feed her if she refused.I don t understand this shit at all Only YOU get to decide how little or how much you eat, when you eat, and what you eat ONLY YOU Any person who tries to violate this right in any way is a fucking piece of shit End of story I don t know why Jordan feels like she has to include some line about force feeding in every single one of her novels Cut this shit out.How s the sex, Carmen It s mostly very good I highly enjoyed it, especially since Jordan takes the time to have long, described kissing My only complaint is that Sophie and Jack decide to use the pull out method of contraception in my mind this is not contraception and that made me extremely nervous.Tl dr A fun and charming historical with good vocab I would highly recommend this if you enjoy light and frivolous historical romances, not so much serious ones or ones that are historically accurate Added amazing bonus of extra and described kissing, which makes me very happy.THREE REAL STARS, FOUR ROMANCE STARS A lot of fiction authors decide to give their MC male or female some sort of starvation past.This in real life will result in food hoarding and overeating in the person who went through a starvation experience, especially a long term one Most authors nowadays know enough to include this aspect in their books, which is good But this kind of reactive behavior that is completely uncontrollable and unconscious DOES result in weight gain 9 times out of 10 Unfortunately, we still have a huge hatred and disgust towards fat people in our society, and even though authors want to give people these tragic backgrounds, and then be accurate in describing the psychological results of such trauma, they can t bring themselves to include something like A FAT PERSON in their novels.This makes me sad because not only is it inaccurate why include the accurate after behaviors if you are not going to go all the way but because it perpetuates and sustains this myth that being fat is just not acceptable No matter what your former circumstances or background, being fat is the ultimate sin in our society AND, I don t even want to say despite your former circumstances because that makes it seem like I believe you need a justification to be fat You DO NOT need to justify or legitimize your body You can be fat for any reason, and all these reasons are valid.Fat heroines in romance are still a sub sub genre, and as far as fat HEROES go, I can t find any Super sad to me, since I think bigger guys are very sexy and would love to read a book about a teddy bear of a guy who was so kind and so manly Oooooooh shivers Still fighting every day in order to combat this kind of feeling society has that only one body type is beautiful, all others are ugly Fight Don t lie down and take it, FIGHT As a woman assigned to a marriage to a man twice her age for the sake of her family, Lady Sophie Fortin is resigned to her fate until Lord Jack Wilde lights her passions The Wildes have been feuding with the Fortins for as long as they can remember It all leads back to a stolen love and a duel When Jack is encouraged by his cousin to pursue rescue Sophie from a loveless marriage he is intrigued by the prospect When they meet at a ball, Jack becomes memorized by the prospect.Chance meetings, As a woman assigned to a marriage to a man twice her age for the sake of her family, Lady Sophie Fortin is resigned to her fate until Lord Jack Wilde lights
