Summary The Lady Most Willing... ´ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Irs to choose from as well as one very angry duke Lord BrettonAs snow isolates the castle and as hours grow into days the most honourable intentions give away to temptations as surprising as they are irresistible. Right so even if you don t know for certain which relationship is which author the first third is funny and charming so it s Julia uinn the second third has horses so it s Eloisa James which means that Connie Brockway wrote the last third in which something already turning bad gets much much worse Luckily the theme of getting worse happens steadily from about 33% onwards so you can stop any time you like and be safe in the knowledge you re not missing outJulia uinn s section is really very good Catriona and Bretton fall in love over the course of one day which doesn t really make sense but it s witty and simple with well fleshed out characters and frankly my na ve self believes it I d recommend ditching after this bit to be honestEloisa James s story is a mess It s basically built on literary references mainly Austen s Persuasion a Burns poem but also a heavy handed Lord Byron theme which doesn t really work because it has no relevance to anything except the name of the hero Byron The plot is also ridiculously wild but insists on taking itself seriously To summarise they have a dramatic conversation in the library and he s apparently a stickler for propriety because of some vague childhood happenings but her hair is just so magic and red and her eyes so enchanting that he abandons all inhibitions Then her bitch of a sister says something at dinner she runs out into the stables we get the Eloisa James trademark scene with horses she gets drunk he chases after her we get a drunken sex scene she randomly says something with a Scottish accent And then all is well Which leaves the Connie Brockway in which nothing makes any sense They re both in love with each other because they shared a glance and it s basically all roses except Robin is a Rake and completely broke which means he won t let himself give in to the love he feels for Cecily Cecily loves him too so she decides to seduce him because talking is unpleasant The sad thing is is that that would have been a sarcastic sentence had the dialogue in this not been so utterly frumpy and faux contemporary Also they are apparently uniue in being the only two people in the world who are decent which leads to the whole falling in love shebang which doesn t really work in a novel with four other perfectly likeable characters Literally Cecily loves Robin because he s not judgemental I think And Robin loves Cecily because she s flirty unlike boring ton girls As a bonus she appreciates his laughter and wit Their ending is fine but only because it means we re finished with themThe book doesn t end there though It gets worse We re thrown into a uadruple wedding which is completely unforgivable since this is not a Shakespeare play which in itself is enough to drive this down from its current meagre two stars But the crowning jewel in this shitshow is the Robert Burns verse which appears at the very end under some weird notion that all the new husbands uote love poetry and promise their wives they ll love them in a Scottish accent too At which point I slammed my Kindle on the table and felt the intense regret of ever picking this upI m being uite dramatic One star is not really fair because the first third is in four star territory but I couldn t tolerate the other two thirds and a uadruple wedding is just ridiculous
