The MesallianceN that Rockliffe finds infuriatingly provocative Worse still her relatives are uite deplorable from Cousin Diana a spoiled and ill natured beauty to manipulative and devious Uncle Richard As a prospective bride therefore Adeline is out of the uestion Until that is a bizarre turn of events cause the Duke to change his mind and make what his world will call a mésalliance Once back in London Nell plays fast and loose with the affections of Harry Caversham Rockliffe whilst attempting to woo his elusive bride begins to. Gosh this was so very good And misses five stars by half a pipLet’s face it Rock is one of the most well written and intriguing heroes in historical romance That said he’s not obvious romantic hero fodder He’s aloof effete and sarcastic sometimes cruel in his mischievousness Pretty much a stereotypical Georgian aristocrat but you need a bit than that And boy oh boy does Riley deliver She delivers layers Rock is pulled apart as he falls in love but remains entirely true to character It’s a marvellous lovely subtle piece of characterisation That biting cruelty he sometimes demonstrates doesn’t go away in fact he uses it to hurt his new bride Adeline as the cracks in their marriage start to appear and he finds he cannot simply control everything now he’s in love and unsure of himself One also sees the wonderful man that he is beneath all the façade He’s kind and patient and attentive and just dreamy yep I’ve used the word because he is All right He just is It also seemed very fitting to me that he should fall for a woman outside of the mode of life he was used to living who he had met in strange circumstances On which note Adeline Adeline was great A proper foil for Rock and until the last bit of the book on that later a strong woman in difficult circumstances There’s a fantastic scene loc 960 17% in which her awful uncle tries to convince her to become the mistress of one of the attendees at a house party She rebuffs him a sweet but bitingly fierce and sarcastic manner It says so much about her character both the unhappiness of her situation but also her grit Their love story goes in fits and starts Each afraid their feelings won’t be reciprocated and each keeping a Big Secret from the other funnily enough about exactly the same thing All of the brilliant elements of Riley’s writing from the first book are on display here Lovely turns of phrase a properly Georgian feeling to the book and lots descriptions of fashion which somehow never get boring because really they serve to illuminate the characters There’s a fantastic array of secondary characters Nell Rock’s sister the evil uncle the twin cousins of Adeline one is uiet and softly spoken the other is entitled spoilt and angry Diana was fantastic in her awfulness We get not one but two secondary romances and they’re both a delight But it doesn’t uite make it to five stars I’m being stingy but I would be lying if I didn’t say that towards the end the Big Secret and the lack of communication bugged me It also felt out of character Rock plainly could be trusted and yet Adeline keeps the bribery of her uncle from him Adeline isn’t stupid or timid but at times her actions here made me irritated with her Eually Rock doesn’t tell her about her Mother when I really felt he should have done That said all these miscommunications do make for a helluva declaration scene when finally finally these two say what they need to say This is a fantastic book I’m so pleased that I have nearly all of Riley’s back catalogue to enjoy
