i enjoyed this book very much, the way her plan back fires its humorus.
Alls fair in love and sexuctiom
Y. Alls fair in love and seduction 5/10
While the writing standard is of a good level for a bodice-ripper, it is the storyline that makes me detest this book.
The “hero”, a viscount, seduces Elizabeth deliberately with intent to ruin her, because he believes her older sister lied about being compromised by his brothers mother to extort money from his family. Now even if that were true, it is no reason to hurt Elizabeth. It just shows he is a nasty individual. So when his brother accidentally admits he DID compromise her sister, and lied about it, our “hero” then apologises to Elisabeth and proposes, which she joyfully accepts. What???? He is a HORRID person, in his core. I believe storylines that suggest that an abusive person is going to become a good husband are sending harmful messages to readers and our community.
