Hopelessly Romantic

Emily is a 24 year old hopeless romantic who because of an indiscretion in her past is doomed to spinsterhood. Then comes in the Earl of Blade (Simon) who wants to marry her even if she might seem ruined to everyone else, but wait it's not all as easy as that. Turns out...
Emily is a 24 year old hopeless romantic who because of an indiscretion in her past is doomed to spinsterhood. Then comes in the Earl of Blade (Simon) who wants to marry her even if she might seem ruined to everyone else, but wait it's not all as easy as that. Turns out Emily just fits in to a plan of vengeance Simon has plotted for years against Emily's father. Emily knows Simon's plans and marries him anyway because she is already so in love with this man. She hopes that in time Simon will come to love her too. Sometimes I want to shake some sense into Emily for being so naïve but I do adore her unwavering affection for this dragon man of hers. While this mysterious, powerful and dangerous man may scare off the entire ton all Emily sees is a flawless, noble, generous man. From the start Simon does find Emily quite intriguing but he cannot make sense of the thoughts going thought his little elfin wife's head. As Simon spends more and more times with his passionatley devoted wife he starts to wonder if he is as in control of the situation as he thinks he is.

Every second of this book made me mad, i did not like how the book treated Emily, who is naive and down right stupid at times. I expect a romance to leave me in another realm of happiness, this one did not. Simon was always so dis-respectful and mean. I had to force myself to keep reading and then immediatly start reading another book. I usually love Amanda Quicks books but this one left me wanting. I wanted Emily to run and i wanted something horrible to happen to simon, i know thats sound bad but, it is the way the book made me feel.

    Unbelievably Stupid

    That is the way to describe Emily. If I had to listen to her talk about the metaphysical plane ine more rime I was going to throw up. No one is that naive. The book as a whole was completely not worth my time.

    exhaustively naive

    The plot of this book was interesting at first but after reading less than 20 pages I was regretting this purchase. The main character Emily is so ridiculously naive and lives in a different reality. Although the idea is that she has suffered hardships and is now being rescued by Simon, I have no sympathy for her. She is childish and oblivious of whats going on around her and live in a delusional world where everything is good and people will do anything she wants. I tried to force myself to read it because I was on an airplane and there wasn't much else to do but her stupidity about metaphysical planes and a higher level of communication very quickly became to annoying to even force myself to finish the book.
