Ragged, Hungry Waif With The Dignity Of A Queen, He Fights Against Wanting Her Though Captivated By Her Intellect, Strong Will And Beauty, He Will Never Love The Woman Who Has Deceived HimOR SO HE THOUGHTThough Their Battle Of Wills Grows Stronger Every Day, Desire Threatens To Overpower His Fury Can This Maddening Woman Who Is Now His Bride Melt His Heart Of Steel Or Will Her Silken Touch Only Strengthen His Vow Never To Fall Prey To The Dangers Of Love Meh I didn t read the back cover before starting this but I guess it clearly states the heroine, Kathryn, forces the hero, Lucien, into marriage Not a fan of that, I must say.Katherine is under her evil uncles care, who basically locks her away in an insane asylum and wastes away her fortune She escapes and happens across the hero s carriage and stows away He finds her and thus they meet and get to know each other.She traps him into marriage by planning to seduce him, although her feelings are somewhat genuine and writes a note beforehand to secure an audience.Did not like this I get that it s a part of this plot but I just felt so bad for the hero.Also random side romance plot about the hero s aging aunt that I could well do without Enjoyed her character in the book but really dislike split romances.Then as it keeps going, it seems like they are falling in love and dumb miscommunication enters the plot She says she still wants an annulment she doesn t so he gets upset and annoyed that she has no feelings for him So instead of telling her how he feels he MUST impregnable her I m all for a good impregnating , don t get me wrong but just TALK TO EACH OTHER They end up thwarting her uncle and live happily ever after Not a horrendous book but not one I loved Lucien Raphael Montaine, Marqu s de Litchfield es un hombre de palabra, inmensamente rico y muy atractivo En un viaje de vuelta a su castillo se encuentra a una joven escondida en su carruaje que le pide ayuda, como buen caballero que es, decide ayudarla y descubre que la mujer ha escapado de un hospital psiqui trico donde estuvo internada durante el ltimo a o por obra de su t o, un conde que decidi internarla ya que ella descubri que su t o estaba gastando su fortuna que heredo luego de la muerte de sus padres.La joven es cuesti n es Katryn Grayson, es hu rfana y su nica familia es su t o, en el que obviamente no puede confiar Al comienzo parece una mujer fr gil pero en realidad es cautelosa, ya que ha sido defraudada y maltratada toda su vida En Lucien encuentra un amigo en el cual confiar y protecci n, pero sabe que tarde o temprano todo esa buena racha se va a acabar Lucien est comprometido para casarse y su t o no tardar en encontrarla y volverla a meter en el hospital Katryn inventa un plan para seducir al marqu s y los descubren en una situaci n comprometedora que lleva a que Lucien se tenga que casar con Katryn y ac es cuando todo se pone m s interesante Despu s de la boda Lucien se siente traicionado por Katryn, a quien el consideraba su amiga y ella se arrepiente de haberle mentido y manipulado Su t o se queda sin la forutuna de Katryn, que ahora le corresponde administrar a su marido Lucien con la ayuda de su amigo Jason y la esposa de este, Velvet, comprende lo que Katryn debi de sentir y comprende sus acciones en momentos de desesperaci n Bueno otra historia con trama muy enredada pero igual o m s atrapante que el libro anterior Me encant la determinaci n de Kathyn en sobrevivir, a veces tomando decisiones extremas y no del todo acertadas pero demostrando determinaci n e independencia algo totalmente admirable en la poca en la que est contada la historia.La verdad que est historia tiene elementos que la poca deben de haber sido tab Katryn tras la muerte de sus padres se interes en la medicina y la anatom a humana, cosa totalmente fuera de lugar para una mujer, el Dr Canaghan era amigo de su padre y al ver la determinaci n de la joven en querer aprender le ense a todo lo que sabe, as que Katryn es algo as como una m dica sin t tulo que se pasa todo el d a entre libros estudiando en vez de bordando o pintando Usa su conocimiento para ayudar a las personas y eso saca de quicio a Lucien que no comprende su vocaci n pero ella sigue haci ndolo incluso despu s que l se lo proh ba.Me pareci totalmente innovador en una novela rom ntica hist rica encontrar descripto una mujer que estudia y nada que medicina, una profesi n que en esa poca era exclusivamente para varones Tambi n otro tema innovador es la adopci n de Michael, un ni o que naci en el hospital psiqui trico y que Katryn le pide a Lucien que lo saque de ese lugar y el decide adoptarlo otro tema tab que el marqu s decida que su primer hijo sea un hijo adoptado, todo un esc ndalo para el momento.Hermosa historia con muchos temas que realmente da para pensar y le aportan un toque totalmente novedoso a un novela hist rica. When caught in a compromising position, Lucien Montaine, the Marquess of Litchfield, is forced to marry Lady Kathryn Grayson Knowing that she would be despised by Lucien for her act of treachery, Kathryn knew no other way to escape from the evil clutches of her guardian uncle Douglas Roth, the Earl of Dunston Lucien was attracted to Kathryn s beauty but it took awhile for him to forgive her for what she had done Lucien was an organized man who had his life all planned out until he met the whirlwind that was Kathryn I loved the story of Lucien and Kathryn Another great romance from Kat Martin. The first 85% of this book was fantastic I cannot forgive the ending Truly So be forewarned, Spoilers ahead This sequel follows Lucien Montaine, a cynical lord who for some reason, seeing how happy his friend Jason is but remembering how much pain he endured has decided that love is not for him So he s engaged to a useless twit of a woman Along comes Kathryn Grayson, who has been committed by her uncle to control her fortune and will stop at nothing to keep it So Lucien sets out to protect her and finds himself falling in love she goes first though.Here s the thing First, and this is forgivable, she betrays him into marriage And he is righteously angry Livid With reason But he sees things differently after a while, though he has trouble accepting some of her hobbies She is an absolute coward who acts without discussing her actions because she s afraid of his reaction She s already seemingly ruined his life with a marriage he didn t want and forced him to face scandal because he has to cry off of his previous engagement Then she proceeds to muck about in her studies risking even scandal though I understand she needs to do this The two of them have a very passionate, yet rather angsty and turbulent relationship All of this could still be a great book, really But then, while Lucien is out realizing he loves her, she runs away And so rather than facing him and giving him the chance to admit it, she just disappears on him And he goes on a frantic search to find her not only Lucien, but also his close friends and his aunt who are quite worried about her Now while she s away for a year, she gives birth to his son and she feels a bit lonely While she s gone he stops eating, loses weight, becomes a recluse, begins to lose faith and actually accepts that he will never see her again Then she suddenly shows up with his son After her cowardly escape because she was afraid to face him, I wanted her to feel some serious guilt She destroyed the man that she loved and it wasn t until the following day when faced with the little boy that she had practically adopted into the family and then abandoned that she doubted her decision to leave She made him suffer like that and she hardly suffers at all She doesn t even apologize The selfish, cold hearted bitch I can t forgive her In the absence of her guilt, I would have preferred Lucien s anger but no, by this time he s a broken, doormat of a hero No thanks. Opening a hole in the suffocating boy s throat was almost identical with another book Couldn t check which book was written first since I couldn t remember the name that book.

Have you ever read a book that just took one step over the believability line This is one of those books While some things were believable, some just had me rolling my eyes in annoyance It just seemed like there were one too many elements to the plot and not all of them were carried off successfully.Something that also bothered me was Kathryn She wants to study medicine and learn all there is to know and yet she doesn t want to actually practice medicine and yet she does Maybe I just didn t get the difference between being a doctor and helping the local people with their ailments Is that not the same thing Kathryn also overacts too much and frequently jumps to conclusions instead of waiting things out She runs away with little to no cause and plans to stay away forever This book could have been better, but it annoyed me too much. this is the first i read kat s book, and i love it so much the story is begin about Lady Kathryn Grayson who is a gently bred noblewoman with a privileged future ahead of her until her greedy uncle decides to steal her fortune by committing her to an insane asylum Kathryn decided to escape from the trouble place and the fortune came when the night she excaped and found a carriage and then jumped to the carriage but that she dont know is that the carriage belong to Lord Litchfield who is a man of honor and probably her only salvation Desperate to save herself, no other choice, she attempts to seduce him and forces him into marriage.but one thing she knew exactly that she couldn t take his heart.The moment Lucien encounters the ragged, hungry waif with the dignity of a queen, he fights against wanting her Though captivated by her intellect, strong will, and beauty, he will never love the woman who has deceived him Will kathryn success to gain his heart and will lucien finally open his heart and admit that he cant life without the woman who actually captured his heart from the fist time their meeting meanwhile kathryn s uncle still trying to gain what he think that belong to him my review in indonesiaLady kathryn adalah wanita bangsawan yg mempunyai masa depan yg cerah dikarenakan kekayaan yg diwariskan oleh yg sgt byk sampai akhirnya paman yg seharusnya menjadi walinya sblm dia dpt mengambil alih kekayaan ayahnya malah memasukkannya kerumah sakit jiwa karena pamannya adalah org serakah dan bermasuk mengambil semua kekayaan kathryn.Krn tdk tahan dgn perlakuan rumah sakit jiwa yg sgt mengerikan hingga suatu malam kathryn melarikan diri dan ditengah jalan dia menemukan sebuah kereta dan tanpa pikir panjang dia pun menaiki kereta tsb yg ternyata adalah lord lucien Litchfield seorg bangsawan dan mgkn adalah satu2nya tmpt penyelamatannya.Putus asa utk menyelamatkan dirinya, kathryn mencoba utk menggoda lucien yg pdhl saat itu sdh bertunangan dan akhirnya membatalkan pertunangan tsb dan menikah kathryn dan kathryn tau dgn pasti bhw dia tdk akan pernah memenangkan hati lucien.Sementara itu lucien yg berusaha menepis ketertarikannya kpd kathryn akibat masa lalu akhirnya hrs mengakui bhw dia tak dpt melawan rasa ketertarikan diantara mrk berdua.Mampukah kathryn memenangkan hati Lucien dan apakah lucien dpt membuka hati dan akhirnya menerima bhw dia tdk akan bs hidup tanpa kathryn yg sebenarnya tlh menjerat hatinya sejak awal mrk bertemu sementara itu sang paman terus berusaha mendptkan kembali apa yg diyakininnya adalah miliknya Shelly s review here pretty much captures my opinion of the book There were lots of features of it that I just didn t find believable It was annoying Super annoying.It was also published in 2000, but there was a real 1980s bodice ripper feel to it Maybe it s because the hero ripped the heroine s clothing repeatedly while ravishing her I don t know That taste of the 1980s was really disappointing to me I don t expect that in recently published romance novels.
