Gwendeline Gregory is an orphan about to lose her home when Alex St. Audley, Earl of Merryn, steps in to rescue her.
Honestly, I found the beginning of this book to be interesting a far as the predicament Gwendeline found herself in goes. That didn’t last long, however, once I realized the entire book was going to be through her POV. More on that in a moment.
My favorite heroines are much like Belle from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast: they’re smart and they love to read. Gwendeline is (as she admits herself) not one of those heroines. When I first read her list at the beginning with the typos, I thought it was a mistake on the author’s part until I kept reading and found out Gwendeline has never been interested in learning. No, thank you, to that.
As far as Alex goes, it’s so incredibly difficult to get to know someone when you don’t get their POV and I hate when the hero’s POV is omitted. I skipped through the book and never found a spot where we got inside his head.
I don’t think I’ll be reading another title from this author.
Who needs a knight in shining armor when there's an earl at your side...?
