Jan 08, Meliana rated it liked it Shelves: Collin Blackburn, Baron Westmore, demi janjinya kepada ayahnya untuk membalas kematian saudara tirinya, bertekat untuk menemukan St Claire pembunuh John.
Collin mau tak mau harus menemui Lady Alexandra, wanita yang dicintai John sekaligus menjadi alasan duel yang menyebabkan saudaranya itu meninggal. Dan saat dirinya bertemu dengan wanita itu, Collin pun harus mengakui bahwa Lady Alexandra memang wanita yang cantik dan mempesona, Collin harus meyakinkan dirinya tidak boleh jatuh cinta kepada wan Collin Blackburn, Baron Westmore, demi janjinya kepada ayahnya untuk membalas kematian saudara tirinya, bertekat untuk menemukan St Claire pembunuh John.
Dan saat dirinya bertemu dengan wanita itu, Collin pun harus mengakui bahwa Lady Alexandra memang wanita yang cantik dan mempesona, Collin harus meyakinkan dirinya tidak boleh jatuh cinta kepada wanita itu. Lady Alexandra Huntington, adik Duke of Somerhart, menyadari bahwa dirinya telah membuat skandal dan telah dikucilkan dari masyarakat.
Hatinya bertambah hancur ketika dia bertemu dengan Collin dan mengetahui bahwa St Claire sengaja merencanakan duel tersebut. Alex merasa tertekan dan memutuskan untuk menemui sepupunya George. Tapi tak disangka dia malah bertemu dengan Collin di sana karena rupanya Lucy, istri George, adalah sepupu Collin. Alex tahu dengan gelar 'wanita tercemar' dia bisa melakukan apa saja kini dan dia tahu bahwa dirinya menginginkan Collin. Walaupun Collin berusaha menghindarinya, tapi tak menyurutkan usaha Alex.
Dia pun mengajak Collin untuk berlibur selama seminggu di pondok milik Alex dan Collin pun bersedia. Tapi terkejutlah Collin karena ternyata Alex masih perawan dan dia pun merasa dijebak oleh Alex. Collin memang menginginkan pernikahan, tapi tidak sekarang dan apalagi dengan calon istrinya adik seorang Duke, dimana derajat mereka sangat jauh berbeda.
Collin akhirnya melamar Alex karena kewajibannya, tapi Alex menolak. Alex ingin Collin menikahi dirinya karena cinta, bukan karena terpaksa. Walaupun jika akhirnya mereka menikah, bisakah Collin percaya bahwa dirinya tulus mencintai Collin dan bukan 'wanita penggoda' seperti yang orang lain katakan tentang dirinya dan mampukah Collin mengatasi rasa minder dirinya kepada Alex. Aku suka dengan tokoh Alex, memang sedikit keras kepala tapi maklum banget karena dia tumbuh tanpa ibu dan usianya baru 19th dan menikah usia 20th.
Malahan bikin aku nggak salut dengan hero di cerita ini, Collin, rasa tidak percaya diri dan tidak percaya pada Alex itu bikin gemes sejadi-jadinya. Yang berkesan di cerita ini sewaktu Alex memutuskan untuk pergi meninggalkan Collin, nah lho, karena Collin terus menerus berfikiran negative tentang istrinya dan percayanya hanya di mulut saja. Tapi semua berakhir dengan happy ending kok. Overall aku lumayan suka dengan gaya penulisan Victoria Dahl, bahasanya tidak berat, hot scene-nya ditulis dengan begitu sweet tapi juga bikin gerah, walaupun tidak sepanas covernya yang merah membara begitu.
Jadi nggak sabar mau baca tentang kakak Alex di seri keduanya. Apr 08, Jennifer rated it liked it Shelves: So this is sort of in a series with a couple of other Dahl historicals I have read can't quite recall the names, as they are always only vaguely related to the actual plots and apparently I read them out of order, with the 3rd one first, then the 2nd, then this one which is the first. It doesn't really matter, they stand-alone, but they do occur in a chronological order and are about related characters who appear in all three books.
So, in the context of those other 2, I think this was my least So this is sort of in a series with a couple of other Dahl historicals I have read can't quite recall the names, as they are always only vaguely related to the actual plots and apparently I read them out of order, with the 3rd one first, then the 2nd, then this one which is the first.
So, in the context of those other 2, I think this was my least favorite of the three. Dahl seems to always write some psychology into her romance, and she does it well. Her grasp of this leads her to be one of my more favored romance authors at this point. She manages to do it even in her historicals but it does not read quite as plausibly there.
She does not manage to intersect the mores of the period society she is setting her stories in, with the conflicts that the characters encounter. What I mean by this is, her heroines in particular are just completely out of place in Regency England. There are improper, bold, immodest unless it suits their ends This is explained away because in every case they are ruined by some extenuating circumstances that free them from the truly oppressive societal restrictions that young unmarried ladies really did live with during those times. When I read one of her books, I was willing to buy it and suspend my disbelief I think I'll stop with her historicals while I am ahead - no doubt after a little to forget my own silly little irks with this, I would enjoy picking one up again.
There is always alot to enjoy. This one is not so different - Alex is a ruined young woman, living outside polite society as the manager of her brother, the Duke's country estate. Collin is a Scottish lord who seeks retribution against her for wronging his brother, ultimately playing a part in his brother's death. But she is really an innocent and of course he falls for her. It was an interesting read because they get married about halfway through and you think I enjoyed that, but it wasn't earth-shaking for me.

I think I prefer Dahl's contemporary romances because the characters, as empowered contemporary people living in a free society, can act outrageously and it's not such a stretch. In these historicals, it seems the plot is constantly relying on some girl to flee out into the dead of winter on her horse or something otherwise just as implausible. Tea parties, fortune-hunting suitors, and oppressive, unrelenting propriety under the eyes of an army of chaperones and society tabbies. That life was not for her.
She regrets that her forays into "fast" territory ended with the death of a young man she considered a friend, but with regard to her own life, she's better of Alexandra Huntington is ruined. She regrets that her forays into "fast" territory ended with the death of a young man she considered a friend, but with regard to her own life, she's better off this way.
Exiled to her brother's country estate, which she ably manages, she no longer has to contend with the coma-inducing tedium. Unfortunately, reality tracks her down even in her exile.
Collin Blackburn, the half-brother of her dead friend, barges into her life and demands that she provide information that will help him find his brother's killer. Collin hates her—of course he would, given she's the cheatin' ho who broke his brother's heart. Given his brother fought a duel for her that ended in his death. Of course he doesn't know the whole story. It undercuts a lot of the potential tension. Even so, I ended up really liking this couple, and the history that brought them together really did seem like an insurmountable obstacle, no matter how "reasonable" they both might be.
So I liked this enough to download more by Dahl, even tho I already had a couple dozen perfectly good books in the queue. Which earns this one a four star.
To Tempt A Scotsman (originally made available by Kindle only) (Zebra Debut)
Sep 07, Katyana rated it liked it Shelves: I wanted to like this a lot more than I actually did. In the first half, I really disliked the heroine. Sturdy case, easy to fasten and the internal light feature is well thought out and easy to use. The light is magnetic so fixes onto the corner of the case easily and you can bend the light to your own spec, then remove it to its internal holder when not in use. The case easily fits in my handbag without being bulky and it did get a few admiring looks especially when using the light on the airplane! Excellent product and very pleased with purchase.
Bought this just recently when luggage allowance meant I couldn't take my usual pile of books and I had to join the 21st Century and use my Kindle!! Not liking sand much myself I figured the Kindle would like it less and as Snow White and Grumpy keep different sleeping times a light was must!!
Wow, delivered almost before I'd logged off the site, slim stylish bit like me! Easy website to locate item needed. Good choice, competetive price and range of designs. Item exactly what I wanted and am very pleased with it since. Delivery was quick and item in immaculate condition. Would definitely recommend MobileFun to friends and family. This was exactly as describe. It fitted perfectly and the light is ideal.
Perfect and great value for money. I would highly recomend this to anyone thinking of buying one. I am very pleased with the case. It fits the Kindle well and the light is bright enough to allow me to read when my husband is asleep. It takes a little time to learn to switch on and off, but its worth it. My only small gripe is that the light casing is not very attractive as it is an appendage on the back, but I have learnt to love it anyway. The case also has a wrist strap which ensures against accidental dropping and damage.
The case was delivered promptly and was well packed. Altogether a good buy. I bought this for my mum for mother's day. She was given the Kindle for a Christmas present but no case or cover. This case is very nearly perfect.
